Sometimes it doesn’t end with happy ever after.
Neve believes Jake is the one. She is miles away from home, struggling to fit in at university and missing the people she loves. The only thing getting her through is the knowledge that Jake will be visiting for the weekend.
Jake believes he isn’t the one. His family and lifestyle mean he can’t give Neve what she deserves: so much more than him. He arrives for the weekend, knowing that he has to break her heart, along with his own.
Sometimes we make decisions and have to live with the consequences.
Each of them struggles to cope with the aftermath of the weekend. Each of them is unhappy. Each of them refuses to do something about it.
Sometimes it isn’t about a boy meeting a girl and falling in love; sometimes it is about what happens next.
Heart is available for purchase:
This was definitely not your typical romance novel. Its main focus was on the aftermath of a break-up. It was painful to read but it was also nice to have a different sort of story. You can totally feel for both characters as we're privy to the reasoning behind Jake's actions and your heart aches for Neve because of what she has to go through because of them. Does it make you love either character more one way or another? Sort of. I found that I didn't love Jake so much despite his intentions. Neve, on the otherhand, grew up in a good way throughout the novel and it was nice to see. The story pans out in an unexpected way, too, which I loved. I'm all for unique stories and Heart definitely fits that bill!
About the Author
As well as being a writer, I love reading and reading about reading. My taste goes from Shakespeare to John Green...and much of what lies between! Dickens, check. Austen, check. Atwood, check.
Over Christmas 2012, I discovered the joy of new adult fiction and, inspired by Colleen Hoover and Tammara Webber, I decided to try my hand at writing my own NA novel.
I love the friendliness of the Indie writer community and have been overwhelmed by the support of followers interested in my journey. Please feel free to monitor my publishing progress via my Facebook page, Twitter or blog :-)
My first novel, Curve, was released in October 2013. My second novel, Heart, is a standalone companion to Curve and will be released in November 2014.
