“PIECES OF ME has a dash of thrill with a good dose of sexy…”
~ Under the Covers
Whenever I see a new romantic thriller by Shiloh Walker I get excited. This is the spot where I love Ms. Walker’s writing style the most. Her stories always manage to bring enough of that thrilling edge to the story while still being sexy and romantic.
In PIECES OF ME we find our heroine a woman in hiding from her abusive ex husband. She has a lot of trauma to still get through and recover from, even years later. Drawing is her one outlet and it’s the very thing that gets her close to the mysterious Dillian she’s been lusting over and sketching for a while.
I was expecting a lot of unknown danger in this one and that’s not quite the direction of this story. There’s still some but quite as thrilling as I was hoping for and I guess it was a nice change of pace from what I was expecting, but also left me a bit disappointed. Our heroine is broken and fragile enough that it makes sense we don’t need to pile that much more on her.
I had to admire how she’s managed to survive on her own after something so traumatic. Coping the ways she has to. And slowly opening up to the touch of another man. But I also found some other things about her interactions with Dillian to be a little strange, such as how easily she trusted him when everyone else seemed to be suspect in her eyes. Shadow and Dillian had good chemistry together even if at first I thought he was moving a bit too fast and seemed too forward, but things made more sense in the end. I also really liked his character and how protective and respectful he was of her.
PIECES OF ME has a dash of thrill with a good dose of sexy, but it was just missing a few key points to make this a stellar read. Overall though, I still enjoyed it and can’t wait for more from Ms. Walker.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
