Review ♥ The Heart by Kate Stewart

Review ♥ The Heart by Kate StewartThe Heart (The Reluctant Romantics Book 2) by Kate Stewart
Series: The Reluctant Romantics #2
Published by Self-Published on April 30th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Format: ARC



For the last ten years, I've roamed the globe, captivated by the world around me. I've seen the seven wonders and admired sunsets from every continent. I'd lived and loved and that was enough for me. It would have to be.

I was content, satisfied with my collection of experiences . . . until a phone call led me down a road less traveled.

If I'd known my fascination would pique and be forever quenched only a few hundred miles from where my curiosity had been born, I may have never set sail.


Stripped of the future I'd planned with the love of my life, my family and my career were now all that mattered. I'd lived and loved and that was enough. It would have to be.

I struggled to move forward, to discard the part of me that held out hope for my obliterated heart. But I was bred a romantic, so it was easier said than done.

The chances of being struck by lightning are 1 in 960,000.

The odds of being struck twice are 1 in 9 million.

I risked those odds every minute, often cursing the dark sky, praying for static and a rumble of thunder, but it never came.

No, that second bolt hit me on a clear day.

The Heart can be read as a stand alone but it is HIGHLY recommended you read the first two books in the series first.
The Reluctant Romantics Series
The Fall
The Mind 1.5

** This review contains possible spoilers pertaining to The Fall and The Mind. ** 


Having read The Fall and The Mind, I was more than ready for Rose to find happiness again. I had high expectations for this book, and Kate Stewart absolutely delivers.

Review ♥ Finley by Ella Frank

I devoured Ella Frank’s Temptation series, so when I heard she was coming out with a new M/M series I was excited to jump on the Sunset Cove series train. Finley is the first book and it revolves around Daniel Finley, a lawyer who briefly appeared in the Temptation series. It’s not necessary to read the other series to enjoy this book though.

Review ♥ Sidebarred by Emma Chase

If Romantic Comedy were a land of monarchy, Emma Chase would be firmly seated on the throne. I fell in love with her Tangled series, and Drew Evans became my ultimate book boyfriend. Then along came the Legal Briefs series. The entire series is charming, but I crowned Sustained my Favorite Romantic Comedy of All-Time and—almost impossibly—Drew had to step aside because he proved to be no competition for Jake Becker. Jake, Chelsea, and the six McQuaid nieces and nephews completely stole my heart. Basically, what I’m getting at is if you haven’t read this series, you’re seriously missing out.


Review ♥ Trust by Ella Frank

Review ♥ Trust by Ella Frank

I don’t have a lot to say about Trust except Ella Frank blew me away. It’s like she peeked inside my mind, saw everything I hoped to feel, learn and see, and then she wrapped it all up in an appealing package just for me. Sometimes a series peters out and I find myself wishing the author had quit while she/he was ahead. I thought the Temptation series just kept getting better and stronger.
