So when Charlie finds out she's moving back to her home town, she hopes things will finally be different. She has learned the hard way not to let anyone in. People always let her down, and it wasn’t easy to trust anyone new. That was until Sam Greyson walks into her life and threatens to knock down every wall she’d ever built to protect herself.
With Sam in the picture, Charlie decides to take one last shot and open herself up. With Sam’s help, she is finally able to let someone see the real, bruised and damaged girl inside. That is until she is forced to make a decision between her own happiness and ruining Sam’s life to be with him. If giving him up meant he could have a normal life…She would do it, in a broken heartbeat.
*I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an Honest Review
I do not even know where to start with this book except to say EMOTIONS, EMOTIONS, and EMOTIONS!!! Heartless by Vanessa Marie is a journey you do not want to take UNLESS you have a big box of Kleenex with you. My emotions were all over the place on this read. One minute I was laughing so hard with all the sarcasm and banter between the characters and the next minute, I was crying like a baby.
Charlie is a tough, smart -mouthed girl that keeps everyone at a distance, with good reason, except for her Dad, her best friend, Jules, and his Mom, Callie. That is until she meets gorgeous, stud muffin, Sam. Then Charlie is faced with letting her walls crumble a little and being exposed to this man that walks into her life or staying hidden away. There is so much LIFE that happens to these characters.
This is a crazy read. I loved Charlie and it was the first time, in a long time that I loved a female character. Vanessa Marie writes Charlie as more of a true to life character with all the internal dialogue and talks about the truth of life’s messy details. This is a tough, strong, sassy woman that thinks maybe too much and I really related and liked her. In fact, I liked all the characters.
The characters and their relationships made this book for me. At times the story dragged a little but I had to keep reading to find out if the character was ok.
HEARTLESS by Vanessa Marie receives 4 out of 5 Platypires
