Release Blitz: The Smallest Part by Amy Harmon @aharmon_author


Heart breaking. Heart healing. Heart melting. 
The Smallest Part,
 a contemporary friends-to-lovers romance
is now available on all platforms.

“In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” - Unknown

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 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.

“In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”

There were so many moments of sheer shock and awe in this story that I can't seem to string together all my thoughts. I'm always left profoundly touched and shaken after I finish Amy Harmon's stories and this time is no different. 
Amy Harmon is one author who I read blind. She's someone I trust emphatically to give me a story of flawed characters who are so truly real on the pages that I forget for a moment, lose myself while one the journey and become someone there in it with them. I feel their pain, I love with them and I learn and grow as they do. 
 The characters in all the previous books by Amy changed me in the only way a story can. Every time I open her book I simply take a deep breath and say , Ok let's do this. 
 So begins The Smallest Part.
 Here I am with Noah, Mercedes and Cora and I'm down that familiar rabbit hole again, lost in Amy's wonderland where people forgive, they love, they live. Truly human characters who make mistakes, lie and even break promises yet when you boil it all down, you've got only one choice.

 Mercy and forgiveness. 
Mercedes gave away her heart to keep it. To save her own self from pain she sheltered herself from feeling and risking. Noah respected and loved her so much he let her choose. 
The girl who was as much a part of him as the palms of his hands or the heart in his chest
Then life came in like a wrecking ball and their chance to rise from the wreckage began.
Pressure sometimes begets beautiful things.  
The passion in this novel was brought to a completely different level yet kept that secret and special sense of intimacy. I felt more than heat, I felt emotion and tenderness. Simply put I felt the characters love. 

The scenes in this book between these wonderful characters are so touching and raw that any human with a heart will undoubtedly feel tremendous emotion. There were secrets uncovered, shocking moments that left me absolutely stunned. This journey isn't something I want to ruin for anyone so I won't give more away. Just know that after I closed my kindle, I couldn't fathom starting another book for a good long time. My heart just couldn't hold anything else. 

 For that alone I can't recommend this story hard enough.
