Review: The Smallest Part by Amy Harmon

Title: The Smallest Part
Author: Amy Harmon
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Type: Standalone
POV: Third Person
Rating:

Mercedes Lopez, Cora and Noah Andelin had been best friends since they were kids. But as they grew up, their relationship dynamic changed until the unthinkable happened and they were forced to reassess their lives for any possible future.

“We’re supposed to be all-loving and all-compassionate all the time. But sometimes the things we aren’t supposed to say are the truths that keep us sane, that tether us to reality, that help us move the hell on!”

Noah was a lovable hero. He was kind and gentle not only to his loved ones but also others he came across with.

Being with him wasn’t fun. It hurt. All of it. And it was way too soon.

Mercedes always put others before herself. While I admired her kindness and selflessness, I also wish for her to fight for what she deserved.

Life wasn’t about getting what you deserved. It was about enduring what you didn’t and not letting it destroy you.

I’ve always been drawn to stories of broken people. I love seeing them suffer but eventually rise up to the challenge. This book has plenty of characters that were broken one way or another to keep me entertained. I also enjoy having Moses from The Law of Moses (which is my favorite book of the author) in the book as secondary character with an important role in the storyline.

The Smallest Part is a story of love and sacrifices. It would appeal to fans of friends to lovers romance.

. 📖 #CurrentlyReading: The Smallest Part by #AmyHarmon . It's been a while since the last time I made a paper doll string. I butchered the first two. The third one I got two + half + half people. So I had to cut and stick it together lol! . I wanted to read this one for a while but kept having scheduling conflict. It's finally happening. (F)BR with CC & Loyda. . . ★ Book Details ★ Buy: http://amzn.to/2FwCnZC Blurb: It was a big lie. The biggest lie she’d ever told. It reverberated through her head as she said it, ringing eerily, and the girl behind her eyes—the girl who knew the truth—screamed, and her scream echoed along with the lie. “Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mean . . . I know you love him. You’ve been friends forever. We all have. But are you in love with him?” If it had been anyone else—anyone—Mercedes would have stuck out her chest, folded her skinny arms, and let her feelings be known. She would have claimed him. But it was Cora. Brave, beautiful, broken Cora, and Cora loved Noah too. So Mercedes lied. And with that lie, she lost him. With that lie, she sealed her fate. She was the best friend, the bridesmaid, the godmother, the glue. She was there for the good times and the bad, the ups and the downs, the biggest moments and the smallest parts. And she was there when it all came crashing down. This is the tale of the girl who didn’t get the guy. . . . #WarhawkesVault #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookblog #bookblogger #booklover #bibliophile #bookaholic #bookaddict #bookporn #bookishfeatures #bookstagramfeature #bookfeaturepage #igreads #bookphotography #bookstagrammalaysia #TheSmallestPart
