Pieces For You By Genna Rulon

"The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies, and still defying fortune's spite; revive from ashes and rise.”  -Miguel de Cervantes
Samantha Whitney survived unimaginable tragedy only to discover she had been betrayed by a man who claimed to love her. Shattered, Sam spends months at a safe haven trying to pieceherself back together. Read or not, the time has come for her to return home.

As Sam struggles to resume a life that no longer feels familiar, she finds unwavering support in an unexpected, familiar face. Confronting Sam’s raw emotions and open wounds head-on, Griffin manages to take two steps forward for every step she retreats.

But when Sam is once again threatened, Griffin must decide how far he is willing to go to protect the woman he wants…knowing the cost of her safety is the risk of losing her.

Pieces For You is a captivating journey of survival, healing, and sacrifice—teeming with honesty, humor, unexpected twists, and love’s unsurpassed endurance. 

Excerpt . . . 

I was waiting for Griff to exit the men’s locker room when a gym rat approached me 

from behind, nearly causing me to wet my pants when I discovered his body within inches 

of mine. He leaned against the wall next to me with his arm resting above my head. I felt 

caged and uneasy.

“Hey sexy, haven’t seen you here before. Need me to show you how it’s done? I know 

the manager—I can hook you up with a free month…in exchange for dinner?”

I was about to—I didn’t know what—run, scream, panic, tell him I wasn’t interested in 

his ‘free month’ if he was the last man on earth. Then I heard it—a growl. A deep menacing 

growl was coming from behind me, about a foot and a half above my head. I slapped my 

hand over my mouth to stifle my snicker.

I couldn’t see Griffin and he didn’t say a word, but whatever his body language 

communicated, the dumbass in front of me clearly got the message because he turned tail 

and left, practically running.

I spun, hoping to catch a glimpse of ‘scary Griffin,’ but his face was devoid of all 

emotions, his eyes tracking my visitor’s departure.

“Excuse me,” I said to capture his attention. “Did I just hear you growl at that moron, or 

am I hallucinating now, too?”

“I didn’t growl, it was a deep exhale.”

“Oh, an audible exhale that reverberated in your chest…like a growl,” I said before 

dissolving into giggles.

“I love that sound—you laughing.”

“Should I start calling you ‘Tony the Tiger’ now? Wait…how about ‘Harry the Hippo’?”

“Hippos do not growl.”

“They absolutely do! I took a zoology class for my science requirement sophomore year,

and hippopotamuses, my growly friend, most definitely growl.”

 “If I growled—and I admit nothing—but if I did, it was not a damn hippopotamus 

growl. It was a tiger growl…no, a bear…I want to be a bear.”

“Alright, Yogi it is. Come on, my furry friend, you promised me dinner.”

“Despite your torment, I do keep my promises. Let’s go.”

“Do you have the picnic baskets in the car?” I teased, enjoying watching him squirm.

“No picnic baskets, I’m afraid.”

“Oh, is Boo-Boo bringing them?”
