Dallas Muller has everything he never expected he’d have. He owns a successful motorbike mechanic shop in Newcastle, and he’s madly in love with his boyfriend of four years, Justin Keith.
Justin has always struggled to find where he fit in, never realising his true worth or what it means to be loved—until he met Dallas. Living and working together might be too much for some, but Dallas and Justin wouldn’t have it any other way.
When a terrible accident tears their world apart, Justin’s left with no memory of Dallas or their relationship. Trying to put the pieces back together is almost impossible when some pieces are blank and some are missing altogether. Dallas has to let Justin find his own way back to him and just hope that their love will light the way.
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
Pieces of You is the first book in the Missing Pieces series and, let me tell you, N.R. Walker does not pull any punches here. No sirree. This is a gentle book with only remembered steam which, once you read it, makes perfect sense. It is an emotional book. I think I read most of it with a lump in my throat but whenever Justin said something or couldn't remember Dallas, it grew a little bit larger!
The writing is smooth and the contemporary setting all too believable. The supporting characters provide a bit of light relief whilst providing a back-up system to Dallas. There is not a single superfluous scene or character in this book. Everyone and everything has been placed for a reason.
This is the first book in the series so you only get a HFN ending. It finishes on a bright, hopeful note though so that's something. Who knows what the future holds for Dallas and Justin. It won't be easy no matter what but I seriously can't wait to continue their fabulous story. Highly recommended by me.

N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
She is many things: a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.
She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things… but likes it even more when they fall in love.
She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.
She’s been writing ever since…
