Fitting The Pieces
You’ve laughed with them. You’ve cried with them. Now it’s
time to say goodbye to the Lanza Family, in the final installment of The
Luke Lanza is a man who has always done the responsible
thing. He has faced a lot of challenging obstacles in his life; from raising
his daughter on his own, to building a successful business, even being the only
viable donor that could save his brother’s life. Knowing this about his brother
and knowing that he was going to die, Jake asked him to look after the love of
his life. Now Luke is torn between the promise he made to his brother and the
pull of something he’s never known before.
“Promise me, I need to hear you say it, Luke.”
Luke swallowed. “I promise I’ll take care of Cara, you
don’t have to worry about her.” A tear slipped down his cheek as he finished
his vow to his little brother.
Jake smiled slightly and closed his eyes. “I could always
count on you.”
Cara Sloane is struggling with the loss of her first love
and the power of addiction. Jake had been her rock for so long, with him gone
she realizes how broken she is. She doesn’t want to feel anything, least of all
the emptiness in her heart.
“I know you’re at peace and I should be thankful for that,
but I can’t be. I never realized what a selfish person I was. You were
suffering and all I could do was pray for you not to leave me.”
A tragic accident leaves Luke and his family pleading with
Cara to change the course of her life. Can Cara face her demons and learn there
is life after Jake? Can she learn that she can hold onto to the beautiful memories
they made together and still live her life?
“I don’t want to fix her because she’s broken.” He said
with his own voice sounding a bit broken. “I want to help her because losing
her too isn’t an option.”
Individually they try to heal, together they wonder if they
can fit the pieces of their broken lives.
In honor of the one year Anniversary of the series you can
now read Jake’s Journal.
If someone would’ve told Jake Lanza, he would have ever
kept a journal, he probably would’ve laughed in their face. Journals were for
females. His sister had a journal. He would know, being as he stole it once and
read all her deepest darkest teenage secrets. Yet, to his surprise when Nick
gifted him a blank journal, he decided to give it a try.
Fuck. That don’t sound right. In fact it sounds kind of
gay. Why don’t these books come with instructions? You know what? Fuck this.
(Because I think I’m supposed to sign my name)
During the most the darkest days and most trying times,
Jake used his journal to expose the deepest thoughts, he wouldn’t allow himself
to say out loud. In this journal you will read the thoughts of a man fighting
for his life. Read his letters to Cara as he pours out his heart and soul to
her, through his works and drawings he wished to create. Discover the plans he
had for his loved ones and the promises he left behind. Enjoy the legacy Jake
Lanza left behind.
