HAPPY RELEASE DAY! Pieces by Toni Aleo

In New York City, an underground society of supernatural beings exists, hidden among everyday humans. They don't know of our activities or any of our secrets.
The districts of the Works are made up of vampires, wolves, shifters, witches, and I'm in the fifth and arguably most important district, the Patchwork. My father is the leader of our group, and he oversees all of the other factions.
As his only daughter, that makes me the princess of it all. Cool, right? Sure, I live in a mansion and money isn't an object, but that doesn't matter because I can't leave. I have a guard who follows me around 24/7. My father and three older brothers treat me like I'm a fragile piece of glass, never allowed to take an independent step or make any decisions on my own. It's beyond frustrating--especially since my father essentially runs my life. He says what I do, when I do it, how I do it, and all that jazz. He tests his formulas and new techniques on me. I'm a walking science experiment. I hate it. I hate my life here.
But then he comes along: Killian. He's just some vampire...or so I thought.
But you'll have to read my story to find out what I mean. To know my secrets. Until then, though, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Rebekah von Stein. And I'm a descendant of Dr. Frankenstein.
Welcome to the Works.

"Wow! Toni Aleo is the queen of hockey romance but now she writes paranormal flawlessly. Is there anything she can’t write? I think not. She weaved this new world of witches, wolves, vampires and Dr. Frankenstein’s descendants, that had me hooked from the very first page. It was a fresh new story that I devoured in one sitting. This story was filled with suspense, mystery and romance. It had me on edge wanting, no, needing to know what would happen next." - GoodReads Review \\ Jill M \\ Embrace The Romance
"Okay, so what the hell? I didn't see that coming. I mean, really, the queen of hockey writing about vampires, werewolves and Dr. Frankenstein's descendants? Let me be a little sceptical. And after I read it, let me apologize for it. This book was a fresh wave. I devoured it. It took me only one night to finish it because this story didn't let me go. I'm sitting here trying to put together the pieces - not funny - but I can't. I want to read more books like this one. Just keep it up, Toni!" - GoodReads Review \\ Becca
"I loved this book it was phenomenal.I could not put it down for anything. I help my breath for most of it and still didn't fully exhale when it was over! The end was left with a bit of a cliffhanger and it has me wanted so much more!" - GoodReads Review \\ Ash \\ Morning Books and Coffee

My Review:

Pieces is unlike any book I have read. Enter into a world of supernatural creatures broke into factions. Run by Dr. Frankenstein's descendants. Rebekah does not have a normal life. She is basically her fathers experiment. Replacing her parts and testing formulas on her. Unlike her family, Rebekah is not immortal. Being the only one in your family who isn't immortal is not cool. She has to deal with her brothers/bodyguards all the time. She is a breakable doll to them. She trains with them and got an interesting pair of legs to make her stronger. That is the goal right to keep her safe and keep her strong because she is inherently weak. Prepare to enter a world where nothing is as it seems and the other families are plotting to kidnap Rebekah. Her life is constantly in danger. She lives in a prison where she is not allowed to leave. Will Rebekah ever have a normal life?

Life pretty much sucks for Rebekah, until a handsome vampire named Killian starts to work at the bar. Not only is he hot he seems to be interested in Rebekah. Score! She hasn't had feelings for anyone since her ex so imagine her surprise when Killian starts to make the butterflies fly. Of course it is forbidden for the different creatures to ever mix. Killian is kind of that dark brooding forbidden meat. So of course Rebekah would want him! She must be careful though because things are not as they seem. All around her, Rebekah is being deceived. Will the truth come out? Will Rebekah ever be safe.

This was a very fun read. The story was so original and unlike anything I have ever read. It was a nice change in pace for me. I am hoping we got more books in this series. Especially after how it ended! The story could go so many ways. Aleo has built a world with a lot of possibility and I hope she dives in for more!
