[Release Blitz * Review] MISSING PIECES by Ivy Smoak @IvySmoakAuthor

"He was the light to my darkness. He was the missing piece to my puzzle. He was it."

I'm so excited to announce that Missing Pieces is now live! It's a standalone featuring Tyler Stevens, but it fits snugly into The Hunted Series right after Devotion. 

You can think of it as The Hunted Series Book 4.5. Does that mean you'll see glimpses of James and Penny? Yes, it does!

Tyler Stevens

Five years ago my world shattered into a million tiny pieces. I held onto the first positive thing that came into my life after that - a girl who I could never have. Because her smile made me feel whole again. Her laughter warmed my soul. The thought of her made me feel less broken. The only problem was that she didn't love me back. I waited. I tried. I hoped. But I failed. She just married someone else.

I'm shattered again. So I'm driving across the country toward my new future, trying to escape my past, trying to pick up my own pieces this time. But then I met Hailey Shaw. She came into my life like a whirlwind. Opinionated, full of energy, and sexy as hell. Before her, what if I didn't know what love really was? What if the decision I made a few days ago, at one of my lowest points, is going to make me lose out on happiness once again?

Hailey Shaw

I didn't like to rely on other people. I learned at a young age that my dad and I were on our own. But now my dad's sick. And I'll do whatever it takes to save him. Even if it means facing my biggest fears. Even if it means climbing in a stranger's car and driving across the country with him. And I'm not talking about just any stranger. Because Tyler Stevens is different than anyone I've ever met before. He's the first boy that's made my heart race in five years. The first boy that makes me want to trust. The first boy that makes me feel whole again.

But he's in love with someone else. I've spent my whole life being second, cast aside, unwanted. I can't do it again. So why am I falling for the one boy I can't keep?

\\ Sisterhood Review //

by Becky Grover

I absolutely loved this story. There was so much packed into this story but in the best way. A lot of the missing pieces from the final book in the Hunted series were filled in with this book, giving us the rest of the unanswered questions about what was going on with Tyler.

This book has everything. There were funny moments, exciting moments, and times where emotions ran high and low. I found myself biting my nails and on the edge of my seat and sneak-reading whenever I could all the way until the end! I had way more feels in this book than I expected to and found myself rooting so hard for Tyler. The guy just could not catch a break. The girl he meets, Hailey, has her own set of problems and hurtful past. The two of them have different hurts to overcome and hurdles to cross. While difficult at times, being stuck in the car together causes them to get to know one another, and inadvertently to find strength in each other as they grow closer. 

This plot was so well thought out and kept me hooked throughout! For me, this was a fast-paced read, with something going on during their travels all the time. You really do feel like you know these people and can feel their emotional highs and lows right along with them. I really enjoyed being able to see the other characters a bit within this book as well, as they pertain to Tyler and the preceding story. I hope more people can learn about the Hunted series and the .5 books and spread the word. I think they are all fabulous and I will continue to recommend and promote these books for the foreseeable future! <3
