Cover Reveal: Pieces by Michelle Davidson Argyle

Title: Pieces
Author: Michelle Davidson Argyle
Expected Publication: Februrary 14, 2013
Two years after watching her kidnappers go to prison, Naomi Jensen is still in love with one of them. Jesse will be released in a few years, and Naomi knows college is the perfect distraction while she waits. But when her new friend Finn makes her question what is right and what is wrong, she begins to wonder if Jesse is the one for her … until she discovers he's out on parole. Naomi must sort through her confusion to figure out where love and freedom truly lie—in Finn, who has no connections to her past, or Jesse, who has just asked her to run away with him.

Pieces is a companion to The Breakaway and can be read independently, if desired.
I love beautiful contemporary covers. They're not full of extra effects like many paranormal, fantasy, or sci-fi books are, though those aren't bad either. It always makes those books seem realistic, and more personal, like a glimpse into the protagonist's life. This one is no
exception. You can easily see the character as part of your daily life, perhaps that shy girl that sits two seats ahead of you in science class, or the constantly over-sleeping person who runs to catch the bus.

And have you seen the cover of The Breakaway? The two aren't the same, but you can definitely see that the two have some similarities between them.

When Naomi Jensen is kidnapped, it takes her parents two days to realize she’s missing. Escape isn’t high on her list of priorities when all she has to return to is an abusive boyfriend and parents who never paid much attention to her. For the first time in her life she’s part of a family—even if it is a family of criminals. But she’s still a captive. In a desperate attempt to regain some control in her life, Naomi embarks on a dangerous plan to make one of her kidnappers think she’s falling in love with him. The plan works too well, and when faced with the chance to escape, Naomi isn’t sure she wants to take it.
Doesn't that blurb make you shiver? It sounds like a pure emotional roller-coaster heading towards disaster. The two covers definitely has some similarities between them, though The Breakaway has a more ominously tempting feel to it. (Hint, hint: the silhouette with the handgun.)

I myself have not yet gotten the chance to read The Breakaway yet, but definitely hope to do so soon!

And for you, an unlisted book trailer of Pieces!
