My Heart Series Books 1 & 2

Breaking My Heart by Aleya Michelle
3.5 Took Me A While To Get Into It Stars

Blurb - Roxy is a fighter, she is strong and independent. 

She knows exactly what she wants and is not afraid to go after it, especially when it comes to men.

Roxy thinks she has men figured out, that is until she meets Kade. He storms into her life like a knight on a white horse to save her. He makes her question everything she ever thought she knew about life, men and herself. 

With a past that keeps holding her back will Kade be able to break down her walls? 
Will he be able to prove to Roxy that everything she thinks she knows about men is wrong, or will he prove her right?

Breaking my Heart is book #1 in the My Heart Series and the first book i have read by this author. I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes...

I’m not sure if this is the first novel by this author but this book starts off a bit awkward. The language is a bit stiff and unsure, but this could have been the authors intend to show how people are when they first meet someone and start a relationship lol.

For me it was about half way through before I settled into this story.

I actually loved the idea that Roxy was the aggressor and more experienced one in the couple it makes a change from your typical innocent, virgin female protagonist.

I kinda loved Roxy, yes she’s a bit insecure but what women isn’t, I loved that she is insatiable and sexually pursues Kade. We women have needs to and sometimes we need sex and a good orgasm more than men lol!!!

I swung back and forth about Kade he was a real marmite character for me at times I thought he was a sexy angel but then the next minute I wanted to reach into the book and throttle him!!!

Jemma was hands down the best wing women ever I loved her!!!

I really hated Kade at the end of the book what an arse I just don’t understand his motivation at all.

The maturity levels seem worlds apart between Roxy and Kade she seemed like a world weary 25yr old and he was a bit pathetic still living at home and being a bit of a wuss at 24!!

I enjoyed this book and as I was gifted a copy of the next book in the series as well I’m going straight onto Healing My Heart.

Book #1 Breaking my Heart gets 3.5 stars from me.

Healing my Heart by Aleya Michelle
4 Kade Is An Idiot Stars!

Blurb - Roxy is in a bind...

Should she stay true to herself or should she follow her wounded heart back to her first love?
Back to the one who left her heartbroken and alone. 

Who will be the one to help heal her heart?

Will it be Dylan, who started as her re-bound, but has become her strength and her life line over the past few months.

Or will it be Kade, the one who stole her heart and showed her the true meaning of love. Then showed her all the despair, vulnerability and pain a broken heart can cause.
Which path will bring her to her happily ever after?

Healing my Heart is book #2 in the My Heart Series.

Because I was gifted both books 1&2 in the series I’ve gone straight from the first book to the second so here goes....

Healing my Heart picks up a couple of months after the end of the first book.

Kade is a proper idiot!!!

I mean seriously he needs someone to just slap him round the head and shout ‘idiot’ at him!!

I feel so sorry for Roxy she gets her heart broken and then she ends up with Dylan the psycho!!

I do love a good psycho and Dylan is as mad as a box of frog’s lol!!!

Personally I think that Kade really didn’t have to work hard enough to get back into Roxy’s good graces. She should definitely have made him work abit harder for it in my opinion!!

This book really highlights Roxy and Jemma's relationship and I really loved the camaraderie and banter between them.

This book seemed much shorter than the first book, I’m not sure if it was but the author feels like she found her stride with this second book. Every page felt conversational and easy to read.

Roxy and Kade fell straight back into the easy connection they shared from the first book and the sex was smoking hot!

There’s a third book and I think that may be something to do with the blonde in the crowd but I’m hoping that ultimately Roxy and Kade get their happily ever after.

I have enjoyed this series so far and I loved the added drama and tension that this book brought so this gets 4 stars from me!
