REVIEW ➞ Piece by Piece by Kaylee Ryan



Owen Riggins is too good to be true. The best things in life usually are. He’s good looking, generous and interested in me. Too bad someone like him and someone like me aren’t’ meant to be together.

He’s used to the best things in life, and I’ve grown up with the worst. Building a better life means working hard and staying on track, not falling for some sexy suit with a brooding stare who is just passing through.

Life has taught me not to trust, and even though I want him more than anything, I don’t need his charity or his love…


When a friend sends me to Florida to scout out a hotel, it’s the gorgeous waitress with a shy smile and worn-out shoes I can’t take my eyes off of.

Layla Massey is quiet, beautiful, and in need of a little help- even if she won’t admit it. A generous tip was meant to buy her some suitable shoes, not to buy her love. I want to earn that all on my own.

I’m used to women throwing themselves at me, the name, the money… but she wants neither. It makes me want her all the more.

Little by little, she opens up and piece by piece, she’s taking my heart.

Let me put you back together. Piece by piece, I won’t stop until you feel whole.


Owen Riggins may just be my favorite Riggins brother. He is caring, protective, loving and just a giant teddy bear.

Layla works hard for everything she has in life. She may be struggling but she doesn’t let that get her down. She just continues to fight back harder. I loved her strength and her determination throughout this story. Owen comes from a loving family, he works hard and always as his brother’s and parents supporting him. He’s got a good head on his shoulders and a whole new side comes out when he meets Layla.

The chemistry and connection between Layla and Owen is instant. Owen didn’t want to push too much in fears that it would completely push away Layla. Layla was hesitant because she has never had anyone in her corner and so supportive of her. Everything moved quickly with their relationship and that gave Layla even more hesitation. I loved that Owen continually fought for her and supported her and encouraged her with everything.

Their relationship wasn’t all easy. There were some personal barriers they experienced, but there was also some other drama that occurred and gave the story a little more. I also loved the brotherly relationship between the Riggins brothers. They fighter, they love and they will always have each other’s backs no matter what.

Piece by Piece is a MUST READ and I can’t wait for more of the Riggins family!
