HEART TO KEEP
 


Author:
Amanda Mackey 


This
is a stand alone novel


Genre:
Romance



SYNOPSIS –
 


What
would you do if the heart you loved ended up in a
stranger?

For
bad boy Jax, that’s exactly what happens. His lover, Chloe has died in the car
accident they were both involved in. Grieving for his lost love, Jax soon
discovers that she was an organ donor and her heart, the very one he vowed to
love, always, has been given to a stranger. 




Holly
Jenkins has a medical condition that requires a new heart. Having been on the
organ registry for thirteen months, she finally gets the call she’s been
waiting for. 




After
the surgery she begins to crave things she never has before and has the
inherent need to connect with Jax and the family of
Chloe. 




What
she doesn’t expect is the strong pull towards a guy who doesn’t want a bar of
her and can’t come to terms with the fact that Holly now has his girlfriend’s
heart. 




It
isn’t until he literally feels the pulse of his dead girlfriends, beating heart
that things change…

Review :


I
received a copy of  “Your Heart to Keep:
Holly and Jax” by Amanda Mackey in exchange for an honest review. And sometimes
being honest sucks. I really wanted to totally LOVE the story (which is why I
choose it in the first place)  but I “only”
managed to LIKE it. Which  I am sure is enough but still – it COULD have been more.

First
the reasons why I could not manage to LOVE it … Basically my general issue with
“contemporary romance” was standing in the way. Surly story’s like the one in
this book are “fiction”  – but in the
moment they claim to be contemporary my mind divides the story in sections and
without thinking about it too much I mentally sort through if the stuff in that
story could actually work out.

I would
need to spoiler, which is something I try to do as little as possible, to
explain in detail about my problem with this story. So let’s leave it at this –
transplantations in general are no fiction so they follow certain rules in the
medical as well as the bureaucracy way and I somewhat disliked that none of
those rules seem to have applied in this novel.

If you
are willing to totally neglect this part – we can now discuss the point why I
am pretty sure you will find a great story to keep you entertained. I really
liked “Jax” and “Holly” – but if I am honest, “Micah” almost stole the show
from Jax.

The
Author managed to create a vivid picture of the story in my mind during
reading. All the characters had enough depth to make them interesting. The
writing was flawless, fluent and the dialogues between the characters were
great.

I could
easy relate to protagonists and even if I did not agree with all that was
happening during the story, I could still relate to it enough to really like
what I was reading. I would like to recommend this story to you (yeah I know –
I should have written something like: I would like to recommend this story with
all of MY heart! But when you read the book you will understand why I won’t  )
