Six was always there, even when I didn’t want him.

But he couldn’t hold me together, and I couldn’t be his penance.

Loss is a phantom limb. No one can see it, but the ache torments you in the night, distracts you during the day, and leaves you fragmented. I’m half a heart, half a soul, and nothing could cure the pieces he’d left behind.

Losing him was safer than loving him. Because the love that kept us coming back again and again was nothing short of madness.

But then, isn’t mad love the most honest?


Pieces of Eight is the highly anticipated follow up to Whitney Barbetti’s emotionally raw and beautifully captivating Six Feet Under

The first book in the Mad Love Duet just about obliterated my heart so I wasn’t sure how it was going to hold up during this story, but I think that the author’s beautifully captivating writing helped mend my heart (almost completely) by the end of Pieces of Eight.

After that emotionally heartbreaking ending in Six Feet UnderI had no clue what was going to happen to Six and Mira’s, but I knew that I needed to open my heart to a world of happy and not so happy possibilities. Basically the moment that this book downloaded onto my kindle I dove in wholeheartedly and I knew that this story was going to hold the key to every single one of my unanswered questions. Just like the first book in the duet readers should anticipate that emotional punch in the gut that will keep you on edge of your seat until the very last page because it wouldn’t be Six and Mira’s mad love story without it!

Mira’s strength is undeniable in this story and I am so proud of the progress she has made. She is the kind of character that readers will love and hate at the same time. Readers will LOVE her because she is a lost and broken soul that has the strength to lift herself up and repair the damage she has caused…even if it takes years for her to do so. Now you may HATE her because she tries to push those who love her away because she doesn’t want to expose her weakness.

Then we have Six. This man right here has enough strength in him to repair Mira’s lost and broken soul, but can he really help heal the woman who managed to break him?! This man is dark and readers don’t know much about his past, we he slowly reveals himself and you can’t help but fall head over heels in LOVE with him! He is the ultimate book boyfriend for sure!

Readers if you haven’t met Six and Mira yet, make sure to start with the first book, Six Feet Under in the Mad Love Duet today! Six and Mira’s mad love has the power to destroy ones heart, but if you open your heart up to their story you will find happiness…eventually! Pieces of Eight was the perfect ending and I am kind of sad to let these two go! Whitney Barbetti your beautifully emotional and poetic duet will forever be one of my favorites and I cannot wait to see what you come up with next…

About Whitney Barbetti

Whitney Barbetti is really, truly awful at writing in the third person, so we’re just going to change this bio up a bit and write it as first person.

I am married with two boys. When I’m not changing diapers or cutting food into tiny bites, I escape to Starbucks for hours. My blood pressure actually drops the moment I walk in, hear the baristas call my name, and inhale the aroma of coffee beans. And I don’t even like coffee.

I love music and have a playlist for everything. Queen is my very favorite.

I like watching creepy shows when I am home alone but then I instantly regret them once my mind starts breeding irrational fears. I try to channel my fears into my books as a way to cope.

I have about 20 bacon things in my fridge.
