Pieces of Gray by Kelly Moore - Book Review & Giveaway

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

They can erase his memory a hundred times...he will always find his way back to you.

Gray was a sniper in the army. When a mission went wrong she ended up being held captive in the jungles of China. During these years Gray was tortured terribly, which scarred her physically and mentally for the rest of her life. Her reason to hold on was captian Kell Crew. He is the love of her life and was captured also. When Gray is finally rescued she leaves this place of horror thinking that the only man she ever loved is dead. Gray never got over the terrors that she endured in China. A few years later there is word of soldiers that are being held captive. It's possible that captain Kell Crew is amongst these soldiers. Gray and her cousin Synn are wasting no time to go on a rescue mission to bring these soldiers home.

Captain Kell Crew was put on a mission in China. He needed a good sniper, so Gray was assigned to his team. Kell was captured and Gray saved his life by exposing herself. They were both being held in a cage and even though they couldn't be with each other it's their love that pulled them through each day. When Kell is rescued he's just a shadow of the man he used to be. He once was big, muscular and strong and now he's skin over bones and broken. Before they were captured Kell gave Gray the power to make medical decisions for him in case this would be needed. Now Gray has to make the toughest decision she ever had to make.

Gray is the most loving, caring and sweetest person you'll ever meet, but once she puts on her soldier gear she's a badass. Gray is someone you'll want on your side when things go wrong. Kell was her first and only love and she never moved on. My heart ached for her when I was reading about the cruel torture she had to endure. At the same time I felt proud that she stayed strong and was able to survive. Gray and her cousins Steel and Synn are very close. They all have a device in their ear that makes it possible to communicate and find each other. Gray needs her family now more than ever and they are with her every step of the way.

Kell Crew is such a honorable man. He was a worthy captain and would have given his life for each of his team members. He fell in love with Gray almost immediately and he showed her what unconditional love feels like. It's like their souls connected on a deeper level. Before he was captured Kell was a confident and dominant man, but he always had great respect for others. Even though Kell is an alpha male he never shied away from showing his feelings towards Gray. He took great care of her and loved her with all his heart, which was amazing to witness.

Pieces of Gray is so raw and pure that it made my heart ache. I literally felt every word. This story is an emotional rollercoaster and I cried several times. I love the strong connections between the main characters, it makes Pieces of Gray even more special. The story has many emotional layers and it grabbed me from the beginning. I couldn't put it down and I'm still thinking about this book many days after reading it. Kelly Moore's writing style is brilliant. Every time I read one of her books I'm thinking she can't write a better one, but then I pick up her next story and it turns out she manages to outdo herself every time. I'm already sure Pieces of Gray will be one of my books of the year and it's a story you shouldn't miss.


Pieces of Gray is a story about true love that will always find its way and strong family connections. It's a beautiful heartbreaking story that will move anyone to tears. Every book in this series can easily be read as a standalone.

Hi my name is Kelly Moore and I am Southern girl raised in Florida. I am a registered nurse actually an ICU traveling nurse, wife, mother of two children and I have three grandchildren. I have always been an avid reader and kept journals. Until Broken Pieces, I never had the courage to attempt an erotic romance book and submit it for publishing. I tend to embrace the brokenness in all of us. It makes us who we are. I love to see people come out strong and win against past pains.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing the story…….
