Book Info & My Review
Title: This Heart of Mine
Series: Raine Series
Author: Amanda Bennett
Genre: New Adult Romance – 18+
Synopsis: Kayla seems to have it all. She has a wonderful man who would go to the ends of the earth for her and a family that seems to support her regardless of the consequences.
But is it enough to help her face her demons and to truly find happiness within her heart?
Madison never thought he would be faced with so many life altering decisions at such a young age. he wants to do right by Kayla and his family, but when old wounds reopen he finds himself questioning every choice he has ever made.
Life isn’t all it seems for these two and they’re coming to the realization that there will always be someone wanting to come along and destroy it all.
Will following her heart prove to be the right decision, or will it be the one thing that could make the only man she’s ever loved, say good-bye for good?
This was a wonderful ending to the series. There was just as much drama and angst as the first 2 books but I loved how it all came together.
In this final installment, you finally get the answer to the cliffhanger from book 2. There were times I wanted to scream at both Maddison and Kayla for their actions (and assumptions) but I kept reading and it was worth it.
Maddison is as sexy as ever and there was one scene where I think I might have drooled on my tablet. That is one hot cowboy!
I loved the secondary characters as well. They were a fantastic addition to the story line and rounded out things nicely. Glenn and Cami were so funny. I found myself laughing at them on more than one occasion.
Overall I thought it was a great read and though bittersweet to see the end, I’m happy with how everything turned out.
My eyes fluttered open and I couldn’t make out anything around me. I was confused and in a foggy haze. I was in a small room, but it wasn’t mine. When I heard faint voices coming from outside of the claustrophobic room, I tried to scream, but nothing came out. I lifted my heavy arm up to my throat, trailing the large plastic tubing that lead to my mouth. I felt as though I was drowning and an overwhelming fear fell over me. I was choking. There was a large foreign object obstructing my breathing and I quickly began to panic. What the hell had happened? Where the hell was I, and why was there nobody around? I started pulling the large blue tube from my mouth and instantly began gagging on whatever it was I was removing.
