New Release + Review + Giveaway!: Change of Heart by Nicole Jaquelyn

Friday, September 9, 2016

They've spent their lives pushing each other away, but what will happen when they need each other most?

Anita Martin doesn't expect much from life. Growing up on the street, bouncing from one foster home to another, she learned to rely only on herself. Even after she finally found a loving family to take her in, she was still an outsider—something Abraham, one of the family's older sons, never let her forget.

Abraham Evans doesn't know how Ani always manages to get under his skin, only that's she's been doing it since they were teens. She is—and always has been—undeniably gorgeous. But he's never met anyone as pissed off at the world as Ani.

For fifteen years, Ani and Bram have agreed on exactly one thing: they can't stand each other—until one night when their anger gives way to passion. Yet even as Ani and Bram begin to secretly seek comfort in one another's arms, they remain emotionally worlds apart. When Ani's life takes a dramatic turn and she realizes she needs more than Bram can give, their fragile, no-strings relationship unravels. One way or another, Ani is determined to survive. But when Bram finally admits his true feelings, he may discover Ani has moved on without him.

My Review
Where the heck has this author and this series been all my life?! My copy of this book is filled with an endless amount of post it tags and sticky notes because I had too many things running through my mind while I read this book. Ani managed to break my heart before the 25% mark of the book and I couldn't help but get a little teary eyed. She was so strong, so funny and all in all- kind of a bad a--. Abraham was a little bit of everything but a lot of adorable even though sometimes he forgot to use his filter and said a dumb stuff that made things awkward for everyone involved. 

I found myself comparing this book to the first book in the series (like the fact that I was almost 50% and my eyes didn't look like tennis balls yet) but I should have known that it was too good to be true that I was 200+ pages into the book and I hadn't cried yet because sooner rather than later I was crying so hard I couldn't see the words on the pages in front of me. Nicole Jaquelyn definitely knows how to capture the readers hearts and mess with their emotions. I was happy one minute, cursing Bram the next and then just crying like a baby- it was a bit of a cycle, and I really loved it. This series is now one of my favorite series and I honestly hope that there will be more of it. I am dying to see what happens with the rest of the characters in this book.

Unbreak My Heart, #1
Change Of Heart, #2

When Nicole Jacquelyn was eight and people asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she told them she wanted to be a mom. When she was twelve, her answer changed to author. Her dreams stayed constant. First, she became a mom, and then during her senior year of college--with one daughter in first grade and the other in preschool--she sat down and wrote a story.
