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 Mind 1.5
Books that compliment the series (Room 212, Never Me.)
Disclaimer: I received an eARC of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Another disclaimer: While this is a standalone romance, it is suggested that you The Fall before picking up this. But you should DEFINITELY read The Mind before even thinking about picking this one up – because there will be spoilers in this review.
I belonged to her. And her heart belonged to another.
A need I’d never known had now become my new obsession. I wanted a new kind of home. I wanted to belong, but I wanted to belong to her. She was that home, she had the heart I needed, and I wanted in.
“I want them to know you.”“What the hell for?”Jack stopped in the middle of the room and turned back to me in all seriousness. I took in his blond halo, beautiful features, and stellar body, and my heart sighed as the flutter in my belly extended to my chest.“Because you own me.”
This is a different kind of second chance romance – this love, both loves teach us that no matter what happens today, tomorrow or in the near future, you love with everything in you and you NEVER EVER regret that love. No matter what the consequences.
Thank you, Kate. For Grant and Jack, and for the tightest hug I gave to MY love for being both Jack and Grant in my life.
