Review: Where My Heart Breaks by Ivy Sinclair

Where My Heart Breaks 
by Ivy Sinclair
Released Date: Published August 29th 2013 by Smith Sinclair Books
Pages: 182

If there were a course in screwing up your life, Kate Spivey would get an A+.

Trust is in short supply for Kate at the start of the summer before her senior year of college. Her parents sentenced her to spend it under the watchful eye of her aunt at the famous Willoughby Inn. It was further proof that she was a prisoner in, and not the decision maker of, her life. Nothing she does is good enough to prove that she learned from the mistakes of her past.

Almost immediately, Kate finds that her new summer home holds another person who understands the unfairness of her situation better than most. Reed Black has had his own share of tragedy and regrets, but instead of trying to fight his reputation, he embraced it.

Sparks fly between Kate and Reed, but his mixed signals remind Kate that she needs to watch her step. He is one temptation she can't afford to indulge in, no matter how strong her attraction to him. If she isn't careful, she'll lose more than her heart.

My Review:

Where My Heart Breaks is the story of Kate and Reed, and their struggles to finding a fresh start in their lives. When Kate is sent to move with her aunt for the summer, she thought things couldn't get worse. Having made the wrong decisions in the past, she is sent away to start a fresh start. But she also wasn't expecting to find such history at the famous Willoughby Inn. She is just there to please her parents, but it becomes so much more when she meets Reed Black. Their first encounter came as a surprise, but she finds out rather quickly that Reed is trouble and she can't have that if she is going to go back to her home/school. What she thought was going to be the worst summer, ends up being a summer filled with adventures and hot scenes with Reed Black. She knows she is digging her own grave if she keeps seeing Reed, but the more time she spends with him, the more she wants him. With this she'll have to decide what is truly important in her life and whether or not she is ready to have a fresh start. 

One of the things that I liked about this book is just how certain scenes are unexpected. Kate's life is filled with regrets and the last thing she wants is to ruined her life. With her parents sending her away, she becomes strong and completely vulnerable (specially when it comes to Reed Black). It makes her a great character, and Reed is so kind and sweet. I like how protective he gets when he is around her. They both have a past, but ultimately they have the power to decide whether they want to move forward or keep their past alive. I found myself connecting with the characters and their stories, the writing flowed perfectly and that's what made it a great book. I can't say enough good things about this book without spoiling it, but I recommend this book to anyone that wants a unique and romantic book.
