    2. LOVE this beautiful and romantic story…Pick Up the Pieces is a story of a boy who loss everything when is father found out he was gay… and how he fought to survive on the streets through a hard life he gets back on his feet, and we see a boy turn into a man who doesn´t quit and with a help of other friends he became a leader, but with a past that haunts him is afraid of giving is heart to another man until he meets Wills, who is wonderful… Theo finally gets what he deserves. Someone who a [...]

    3. Refreshing and sweet storyTheoNew familyMysteryWillsSecretsHopeThe life story of one Theo Bascopolis, from the time he was 15 and gets kicked out of the house for being gay, to the time where he is 27 and seems settled with a first real love, William Matheson. But the romance doesn't develop until pretty late in the book. "This time, when he fell asleep, I did something I hadn’t done in twelve years. I whispered, "I love you, Wills." We see how Theo fought to gain his identity, his survival on [...]

    4. 4.5*I read this back in 2011 as a free online story The Light in Your Eyes and LOVED it.I always hoped it would be cleaned up and published and was thrilled when I saw it was being released.This is set mostly in the 1990s, so some of it feels a bit 'dated' like the VCR and no gay marriage anywhere in the US.Theo Bascopolis stopped existing for over a decade. He became Sweetcheeks after his father threw him out at 15 and he fell in to the hands of a unscrupulous user that made him turn tricks.And [...]

    5. Pick Up the Pieces is a great book, written by Tinnean, an author that I didn't knew, but that I am a fan now! I love her style, I love the plot and most of all, I love the characters!I am surrendered to Theo! At the age of fifteen he found out what it is to be homeless, abused, and a rent boy! What he suffered and what he became, shows how strong he is! For twelve years he created a wall to protect himself from one of his biggest fears to fall in love! Until the day that he met the mysterious W [...]

    6. Oh wow, I totally fell in love with Theo and Wills. It was so great to see their story told in full, especially from Theo's pov. I had no idea he was Greek! As usual, Tinnean's words kept me glued to the page until the end. I'm sooo looking forward to the sequel.

    7. Straight up, these books are the most unrealistic, Disney Fairytale hooker stories that I have ever read. That being said, I ate it up and loved every bit.I loved reading about Theo/Sweetcheeks, and how he got to where he was. Kicked out at 15 for being gay, found by a jerk who pimps him out and abuses him, and then, when he runs, he just falls right in with a group of Happy Hookers, who take him in and treat him right. After just a few years, Sweetcheeks is running their stable of boys, they bu [...]

    8. Annnnd I'm done!I Buddy Read this book with Barbara and Isabel. Here's the discussion thread (spoiler free)So, what did I think of it? The book is about Theo. The first half of the book is about his life from he was thrown out by his father at 15 for being gay, until he meets Wills at age 27. The other half was of Theo and Wills' romance. Although their romance was sweet, I felt something was missing. I kept waiting for something to happen, thinking about the cover. Guy with a gun, all sneaky lo [...]

    9. I loved the book. 5+ stars. Can't remember when I gave one of those last, if ever. And I don't usually prefer contemporary.First, the author handled some sensitive content really well. Its uncomfortable at times, but I would expect to be uncomfortable at a 15 year old resorting to prostitution. There is just the right amount of detail to demonstrate the pain Theo endured with out it venturing into squicky or vulgar. Man what a couple of well placed details can convey without it being graphic or [...]

    10. This was a winner!! I love the Spy V Spook series, and getting to know these characters from that series is just as fun! This book is about Theo and William. You don’t have to read Spy V Spook series first, but if you love this one you have to read that series!When Theo comes out to his family his father throws him out and tells him never to come back. A fifteen year old boy on the streets doesn’t have many options, so circumstances force Theo to become “sweet cheeks” a rent boy. So the [...]

    11. There was no need to worry about flashbacks or repetition here, something I had problems with in the first two Spy Vs. Spook books, never made it to the third. Straightforward writing that allowed me to fully immerse myself in the characters and their story. I felt a little uncomfortable at the beginning. The journey for Theo after he's thrown out of the house by his father for being gay begins at the age of 15, but thankfully Theo narrated his story in a way I could handle. I got the whole pict [...]

    12. I have a soft spot for wounded rentboys. *sigh* I loved Theo, but I think he has a serious blind spot in regards to Wills (who I also love). There are so many clues and NOTHING gets answered in this book, which left it feeling a little incomplete to me. I'm diving right into book twoI'm hoping it has the missing pieces. I'm not buying the car accident story. (This is not a spoiler.)

    13. 4 StarsA "Live Your Life, Buy The Book" ReviewI’m a huge fan of the Spy vs Spook series. If you haven’t read it, I recommend reading it. Theo aka Sweetcheeks and Will are secondary characters in the that series.This is essentially a spin off telling their story. I guess it’s not necessary to read that series before this book but I think the crossover was my favorite part of this book. Either way you’re going to have some revelations about these characters no matter the order you read the [...]

    14. Oh I'm sooooooooooo curious and need to read more! This is the first book of a series I certainly will read more!Some information about this bookPick up the pieces is a spinoff of a spy series, called Spy Vs Spook. It's a standalone, you don't need to read Spy vs Spook to understand it!It may help you, to know what is this mysterious job Wills have, and who is his mysterious boss, Mark (SQUEEEEEE hummm, sorry, fan *squee* scream was unnecessary I know, but I love Mark!). So as I was saying, it m [...]

    15. I'm not sure what to think of this book - chosen as book the month for Indonesian MM Reader. This story was part of Spy vs Spook series's universe - which I haven't had the pleasure to read yet (as usual, they're already in my TBR pile). For me, though started interesting enough, it was lacking in Bang! and unsatisfying finish.Reading a story where the MC was one very young underage rent boy was not my choice of entertainment. The amount of abuse and duplicity alone upset me. Even when these boy [...]

    16. First off, I loved this.But I did love some parts more than others. The beginning was great. Theo/Sweets getting kicked out, and hooking up with Frankhad me on the edge of my seat.Finding a new family of new friends/co-workers.loved it.Turning tricks, into serious moneyunrealistic, but loved it. I mean come onSweets would completely redecorate on a whim. He was throwing money aroundeven after he stopped working, he had money to burn. But I don't care, the first part might have been unrealisticbu [...]

    17. This is a very nice accompaniment to the Spy vs Spook novels because this story runs parallel to the others, at least to Forever, if not to all of them. This is the story of Sweetcheeks the rentboy landlord who Mark Vincent rents from in the other books. Sweetcheeks is really Theo, a young man who ran away from Florida when he killed the man who took him in after his father kicked him out. The story evolves over twelve years as Theo becomes Sweetcheeks the rent boy, to Sweetcheeks the pimp, to T [...]

    18. Oh goodness this book was really good probably a 4.5, but it just felt like it was missing something. Admittedly, I have not read the Spy vs. Spook series, but I pretty much got the gist of Wills deal. But I didn't get why Theo didn't question it more. (view spoiler)[Like why would a computer guy be toting a gun in a holster around(hide spoiler)] Maybe it was just carry over from being a rent boy don't question things too much, so he never really thought about it I don't know That being said, th [...]

    19. I really enjoyed Theo and Wills together. Maybe not as much as the couple from the Spy vs Spook Novels but still a lot of fun.I will say you MUST read books 1-3 of the Spy vs Spook series. I can't see how one would enjoy this one as much. You could go without, but you'd miss a lot more of the story that the author never gets into and is VERY relative to this story.Unlike in the Spy vs Spook books you don't swap perspectives at all. This one is told completely from Theo's POV. II felt that the st [...]

    20. The Hard Knock Life This is my first book by this author. I truly enjoyed this. The ratio of good to bad times felt balanced to me. It is rare for a book to read through the calm times. That is usually done in a summary form. I read my GR friends review after the fact and am now wandering if the Spy v Spook series would address the elephant in the book. I was left w/alot of questions by the end and no inference of them getting answered by book 2. Questions: (view spoiler)[1. What the hell does W [...]

    21. In the beginning this read in a very strange way - I'm not sure I can even describe it. Very wooden - and awkward. It wasn't until about 20% in that this really gets going fully - and you embrace it and start to understand the flow of the story and how it is being uncovered. It feels ensemble even though there are MC's. I've not read the Spy Vs. Spook series but now I want too - as I'm curious about Mitch of the white knight flavor. In spite of its length I feel like I am still missing pieces of [...]

    22. OMG - LOVED IT!!! Wills Matheson is my new book boyfriend.I have a lot to say about this story but I will try to keep it brief. After I finished reading it this morning I spent most of the day preoccupied with thoughts of Theo and Wills. I thought about how the two of them are quite an interesting couple, and how they have some secrets that will need to be handled before they are able to ride off into the sunset together.Read my complete review at: Prism Book Alliance

    23. akhirnyaaaaaa selesai juga. yang disuka : daku suka cerita tentang bangkit kembali dari keterpurukan, dan Theo sebenarnya merupakan materi yang bagus, dia cukup pintar untuk tidak jatuh ke dalam lubang obat2an juga oke banget. tapi yah ampun gaya ceritanyaaaa bertele tele, terus lompat2nya itu loh enggak nahan. dia (pengarangnya) butuh story line yang bagus. padahal materi cerita nya sudah cukup bagus, dengan karakter yang lumayan, tapi kayanya banyak lah bagian yang enggak perlu sepanjang itu. [...]

    24. I loved this book and can't wait to read book 2. The characters were so real for me. And I can't wait for Sweetcheeks to find out what Wills does for a living. What will he do? And will they finally get a pet? Hmmm, and speaking about pets, what really happened to General Custer. Also, I never knew that the slang for autoerotic asphyxiation was scarfing. You never know what you will learn from reading. :) On a more serious note, I do wish that more hookers and rent boys had access to houses like [...]

    25. 3.5 starsThe story of Sweetcheeks (Theo) and Wills which was first mentioned in the Spy vs Spook series. The repetition in that series never bothered me so having some repetition here was fine. I liked getting a different POV on Mark! I love Wills (but I already did) although he seemed slightly different here. My only hesitation was that nothing really happened in this (maybe because I knew a lot of it already?). Still, a well written story and I look forward to the next one

    26. I love the Spy vs. Spook series but this one is even better!! I love Theo, he is such a caring person. And it was so sad that he had to learn so young about the world. He did get lucky to meet Tim and get in with those boys. He found a new family and made it his own.When Theo and Wills met it might not have been love at first site but there were such sparks and it was soon obvious that they were made for each other.Loved this read and can't wait to get to #2.Recommended.

    27. The beginning of this book was emotional. Theo was so young and then to be picked up by Franky was awful. I was happy he found Tim but when the names started being said I almost thought it was The Outsiders for a bit. Instead of Ponyboy and Sodapop we got Sweetcheeks and Prettyboy.Theo grew up fast and got in with a pretty good croud. They took care of each other and made a good living out of being rent boys. Something to remember as the book goes on that these were just children being thrust in [...]

    28. 4 starsThis was a a bit of a disappointment. That's not to say I didn't like, because I did. But I expected more than this. I expected to love it. I expected funny, and poignant and, oh yeah, a plot. I really need a plot in my books. There have been a few that have so good that I love them anyway, but this was not one of them. To me, meeting and falling in love isn't a plot. I could be if one person's goal was to find a permanent partner and set out to do it, but most of the time, the characters [...]

    29. A good story about the life of Theo/Sweets from teenage to manhood. From a homeless boy, to thriving high end entrepreneur of a rent boy house, to falling in love with a mysterious man who does "computer troubleshooting" with a gun. This book seems like a lead up to the real story in the next book, which hopefully has answers to the mysteries of Wills and Vincent. Great characters all around, and I'm hoping for lots more with the next book.

    30. The beginning was good but the end never seemed to come, it dragged and I was waiting for either the penny to drop for Theo or some action. All we got was cooking and sex - the cover lied again!! I haven't read the Spy vs Spook series that supposedly runs parallel to this and probably won't as I have other books to read. It wasn't bad - it just got boring.3.5 stars down to 3 for GR
