Beside Your Heart by Mary Whitney
Hosted by: Bare Naked Words
"It's an emotional story that will take the reader back to those feelings that made the late teen years such a powerful time."
Late one night Nicki Johnson plays with emotional fire and Googles her high school love, only to find his name splashed across the British gossip columns. Back in his native England, Adam Kincaid is successful and dating a woman from an aristocratic family like his own. With a career in politics, Nicki’s no slouch, but she knows Adam is living a world away from her life.
Yet there was a time he was no farther than the next locker. Nicki will never forget their year together in high school—the year of her sister’s death, the year her mother checked out. Adam helped Nicki through suffocating grief, and she led him through a coming of age. Was it just high school, or was it something more?
***The sequel, Disclosure of the Heart, released November 5**
I joined this blog tour because the book sounded very interesting and boy am I glad that I did.
We meet Nicki who is suffering the loss of her sister.
In comes Adam and David. Two hot British brothers? Hello!
This story is about Adam bringing Nicki out of her sorrow and the difficult time in her life. I couldn't even being to imagine what I would do if I lost my sister. The emotions the author portrayed through this novel were spot on.
I thought this book was really well written. Great job Mary!
The story is set in highschool but it's more of a NA novel if you ask me. Some content isn't suitable for a younger audience. I enjoy YA/NA all around and I'm so glad that I decided to read this story. I can't wait for the sequel.
I enjoyed the development of the characters and the bonds that were built and broken over the course of the story was written well also.
Nicki was frustrating at times but most 17 year old girls can be so I got over it quickly. It was understandable for her to feel the way she was feeling after having losing her sister. The book jumps from the present to the past and ends in the future which the next book will be set in which is 2009.
I look forward to reading the next book!!!
Even before she graduated from law school, Mary Whitney knew she wasn’t cut out to be a real lawyer. Drawn to politics, she’s spent her career as an organizer, lobbyist, and nonprofit executive. Nothing piques her interest more than a good political scandal or romance, and when she stumbled upon writing, she put the two together. A born Midwesterner, naturalized Texan, and transient resident of Washington, D.C., Mary now lives in Northern California with her two daughters and real lawyer husband.
