Six was always there, even when I didn’t want him.
But he couldn’t hold me together, and I couldn’t be his penance.
Loss is a phantom limb. No one can see it, but the ache torments you in the night, distracts you during the day, and leaves you fragmented. I’m half a heart, half a soul, and nothing could cure the pieces he’d left behind.
Losing him was safer than loving him. Because the love that kept us coming back again and again was nothing short of madness.
But then, isn’t mad love the most honest?
Tera’s 4.5 Blush Review
I’m going to start out by saying that despite my 3 blush rating for Six Feet Under, book one in the Mad Love Duet, I still had every intention of reading book 2, Pieces of Eight because I HAD to know what happened to Mira. On top of that, this is Whitney’s BEST writing I’ve ever read. It’s some of the best writing I’ve read EVER. The shear talent in the writing and characterization alone is reason to read this duet.
If you are looking for a traditional love story in Six and Mira, this is not that story. But if you are looking for two people who eventually find unconditional love, this is THAT story. We see Mira grow even more in this book. It was great seeing such progress in Mira’s character in Six Feet Under, but Mira in Pieces of Eight is a force. She is perfectly broken, but perfectly okay. She is finally perfectly living. And seeing Six and Mira find each other again after being more broken than they’d ever been is beautiful.
These two are worth the wait. This truly is Mira’s story and it was well worth the wait… and the looong book that is Six Feet Under. 😉
New to this mind-blowing and edge of your seat duet? Start with Six Feet Under (Mad Love Duet – Book 1)! An emotionally charged & super twisty read that will take your breath away and have you pining for more. Jump in head first and find out why readers flipped over Six & Mira!
About the Author
Whitney Barbetti is really, truly awful at writing in the third person, so we’re just going to change this bio up a bit and write it as first person.
I am married with two boys. When I’m not changing diapers or cutting food into tiny bites, I escape to Starbucks for hours. My blood pressure actually drops the moment I walk in, hear the baristas call my name, and inhale the aroma of coffee beans. And I don’t even like coffee.
I love music and have a playlist for everything. Queen is my very favorite.
I like watching creepy shows when I am home alone but then I instantly regret them once my mind starts breeding irrational fears. I try to channel my fears into my books as a way to cope.
I have about 20 bacon things in my fridge.
