THIS HEART OF MINE

by Brenda Novak

TOP PICK from RT Book Reviews!

First love. Second chance?

As the daughter of a hoarder, Phoenix Fuller had a tough childhood. So when the handsome, popular Riley Stinson became her boyfriend in high school, she finally felt as though she had something to be proud of. Phoenix was desperate not to lose him—especially once she found out she was pregnant. Yes, she might have acted a bit obsessive when he broke up with her. But she did not run down the girl he started dating next.

Unfortunately, there was no way to prove her innocence. Now, after serving her time in prison, Phoenix has been released. All she wants to do is return to Whiskey Creek and get to know her son. But Jacob’s father isn’t exactly welcoming.

 

Riley doesn’t trust Phoenix, doesn’t want her in Jacob’s life. He is, however, ready to find someone to love. And he wants a good mother for his son. He has no idea that he’s about to find both!

excerpt

His voice had a rough edge that made her fear he wasn’t taking what she’d said as the apology she’d intended. “Right,” she said. “Sex and love are two different things, and boys can make that distinction more easily than girls. That’s all I’m saying. I get that now.”

 

“I see. What a great thing to learn.”

 

Was he being sarcastic? She was so confused. “It was a lesson I needed. And learning it the way I did means I’ll never forget.”

 

A muscle moved in his cheek.

 

“I’m sorry,” she said. “Did I say something wrong? I was trying to apologize for…for falling in love with you. Or for holding on to you when I should’ve let go.” None of this was coming out right. She could tell that much, so she stopped trying to explain and opted for the direct approach. “Regardless of anything else, know this―I promise I’ll never single you out like that again or do anything else to make you uncomfortable.”

 

There. That had to be clear. She smiled up at him, hoping what she’d said would finally meet with his approval. But there was that damn frown again. “What’s wrong?” she asked.

 

“Nothing. Don’t worry. You nailed it. And so innocently, too.”

 

She pressed her fingers to her temples. The pain meds had really kicked in. “I admit my thoughts are…somewhat disjointed. What, exactly, did I nail?”

 

“That you can’t trust a guy,” he replied. “That a guy doesn’t know what love is.”

 

That sounded a bit harsh. Had she actually said those things? “Maybe not all guys,” she clarified.

 

“Okay. Only me,” he said and walked out.

 

“I was trying to apologize!” she called after him.

 

He shook his head as he turned back. “For ever loving me?”

This heart of mine by Brenda Novak brings the story of Phoenix. A young woman that has spend the last sixteen years in prison for a crime that she didn’t commit but nobody believed her.

Now that she is a free woman she only wants to meet her son Jacob and try to be in his life as well as stay under the radar while trying to build hers.
Riley is Jacobs father and he is afraid of letting his son get to close to Phoenix due that he believes her to be guilty but when he sees the way she is now, how she, how she behaves towards her son and hears her version of the story he is willing to try and see if she is how she appears tone now.
I have to say that I really loved the book. Specially Jacob, the fact that this kid was willing to get to know his mom after sixteen years even though all his life he has heard about her being a murderer he listens to her and doesn’t let the rumors cloud action when giving his mom a chance.
This is the first of Brenda Novak I read for she is now on my TBR list
I give this book 5 fangs!!!!!
