I will help you, Andi had thought, her heart spilling over for this sensitive, kind, loving man. One date led to two, led to them sleeping together, led to Andi realizing, very quickly, that for the first time in years, she could see herself spending the rest of her life with a man. With this man.

Jane Green writes of true love, instant families and the heartache of happily ever after with skill, grace and wisdom. However, I found Piece Of My Heart to be different and - more importantly -to stray from the usual chick lit formula. You will laugh and cry as you read Andi's story, and you'll be inspired to pick up the phone and call your best friend to read a scene aloud. As the stepmother to a 13-year-old daughter, I can tell you that A LOT of the descriptions of Emily's behavior were not overblown in the slightest. Also, while you might not like Andi, I have felt her reactions to be accurate and, unfortunately, familiar.

I hover in the doorway as my dad yells excitedly up the stairs. Just getting Cal out of the bath, I hear her shout down. ling her to come down, and I shuffle awkwardly because I don’t think this is going to be the amazing family reunion he thinks it will be. Let’s face it, Andi and I have never seen eye to eye. You changed the hallway.

I wanted to like this book; I liked the premise of the step family, challenges, etc. However, there are two main characters and I couldn't stand either one of them. The "adult," Andi, is the most immature 40-something character I've ever experienced and I truly can't imagine any woman her age behaving the way she does in this book. Over. And. Over. As for the other main character, Emily, who is a teen, she too is unlikeable, the way many teens can be when going through problems, but in this story she was so unlikeable that there were no redeeming traits at all.

As for writing style, there were a multitude of instances where the author switched from past to present tense and vice-versa, even within the same paragraph or sentence! (I'm not talking about alternating viewpoints, I'm talking about inconsistencies in the way the book was written.) There was also a lot of repetition and lengthy diatribes... the book could have been 30% shorter and better for it.

Favorable: This book was cleanly edited from a grammar, spelling, and formatting perspective.
The Sphinx of Driz
When Andi met Ethan in her thirties, she knew he was just the man she'd been waiting for...and the fact that he had two daughters already felt like the icing on the cake. Andi had always wanted a family.

But family life did not unfold in the way that Andi had anticipated, and their "blended" family began to feel more like a chaotic cauldron of warring temperaments and unsolvable conflicts. At the heart of these conflicts was Ethan's teenage daughter Emily, whose histrionic behavior and horrific tantrums began to define their daily lives. Sophia, on the other hand, despite being the youngest, presented as calm, mature, and easily loved.

Because Ethan had a neutral kind of personality, he found himself constantly mediating between Andi and Emily; and in trying to calm Emily down during her tantrums, he appeared to be taking her side.

Something happens during Emily's seventeenth year that changes the dynamics and direction of this family. How will these unexpected events unfurl and cause them all to take another look at things? And what will be the ultimate outcome?

In the beginning, I could see much of the story through Andi's eyes, and felt her frustration for Emily.

Toward the middle, the author brought Emily's point of view into play through alternating chapters in first person narrative voice, so finally I could understand some of what she was feeling.

To say more would be bringing spoilers into the mix, so I will only add that I sometimes couldn't breathe with the intensity of emotions churning up within Another Piece of My Heart. I could understand each of the characters, even as I felt frustrated with most of them at one point or another. In the end, I liked the way things came together, and while I hoped--and even expected--they would play out this way, the ending gave me a very good feeling.

Five stars!

I really enjoyed this one. I read it on a plane and hadn't finished it by the time we landed. I couldn't wait 'til later that night when I'd have time to get back to the characters. I thought the characters were very relate-able and I liked that it showed some of the ugliness that can occur when families blend. It's not always the Brady Bunch and I appreciate that it got into the nitty gritty of the problems that can occur. Of course some of it is overly dramatic, but I don't read for droll happenings! All of the periphery characters really helped round out the story. I felt like I got to know most of the town and as a result I cared about these characters more than I would have if we'd only been let into the immediate family members' lives. I've read all of Jane Green's previous books and this one really held my interest more than her last few have. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next and how it would be handled by all impacted. I also found myself wanting to jump into the book to kick Ethan, hug Andi, and even sometimes Emily, and befriend Sophia! Overall I liked it and I hope her next is just as entertaining!

I think everyone has gotten the gist of the book from other reviews, so I won't repeat it, but I have to disagree with the retractors-- I think this is the best Jane Green book I have read in a long time! While her stories are usually enjoyable, I have found the last few to be a little predictable. However, I found Piece Of My Heart to be different and - more importantly -to stray from the usual chick lit formula. As the stepmother to a 13-year-old daughter, I can tell you that A LOT of the descriptions of Emily's behavior were not overblown in the slightest. Also, while you might not *like* Andi, I have felt her reactions to be accurate and, unfortunately, familiar. While my personal experiences have been nowhere near as extreme as Andi's, I can definitely see how Andi's character could have gotten to the emotional place that was described in the book.

An additional point that can be made is that this book is also an example of a good couple (Andi and Ethan) sticking it out through a rough time, and I personally don't see that often enough in fiction... particularly in the chick lit genre.

If I had to make mention of anything I didn't like about the book, it is the part when Emily leaves her child rather quickly and then the subsequent quick and easy fast forward three years in the story. Also, while the book finally gets to Andi admitting that she can't do it all as a full-time business owner and mother, I feel like that theme wasn't fully explored-- it was introduced quickly and then never really resolved. For these reasons, if there were the option, I would have given the book 4.5 stars instead, but the fact that I truly couldn't put it down prompted me to lean toward the 5-star mark.
