What’s the one moment that will change your life forever?
For Eva Carmichael, it’s the second she lays eyes on Oak Harbor’s troubled bad boy, Finn McKay. He’s bold and reckless, and leaves a trail of broken hearts in his wake. She should stay away, but she soon discovers they have more in common than she ever dreamed. They’re both living with painful secrets, and a true self they keep hidden, not letting anyone in – until she takes a leap and risks it all…
Finn knows Eva is too good to be true. He’s been counting down to the day he can turn his back on Oak Harbor for good, and finally escape all the dark, painful shadows of his past. But this girl is impossible to ignore. Her smile makes him forget himself, and just one kiss could redeem it all. He’s determined not to fall, but then one night changes everything…
Two unlikely hearts. One intoxicating romance. This epic love story is only just beginning.
*Heartbeats is a Heartbreaker prequel novella. It’s set before the events of Heartbreaker, but both are written to be enjoyed as stand-alone stories.*
“We hide our true selves so deep that it’s not until we start to gently peel back those layers of half-truths and scared pretense, and discover a heart so unexpected and true, that we know we can’t be without it.”
“I didn’t know what it felt like to live out loud, to leap without looking, love without fear. To feel a passion so wild and out of control it scared and thrilled me in equal measure. to have my heart broken so thoroughly, I thought I’d never piece the shattered pieces of myself back together again.”
What an amazing novella. Heartbeats is the prequel to Heartbreaker, and I’ve gotta tell you, this might be short story/novella, but boy does it ever pack a punch!
Heartbeats takes us on an one emotional journey. You’re immediately sucked in and intrigued by Finn and Eva. You get to see Finn and Eva meet for the first time. You get to see them fall for each other and all the obstacles that life throws their way. There’s not too much I can really say about this novella. Since it is so short, I don’t want to spoil anything for you. What I can say is this: Readers asked for more Finn and Eva, and Melody Grace has delivered. She made me swoon and if you can believe it’s possible, she made me fall deeper in love with these characters. If you’re a fan of Finn and Eva’s I would definitely recommend checking this little novella out. You won’t be disappointed.
