Synopsis

Synopsis

Loving Cassie was effortless.
She was a thirst I couldn’t quench.She was everything I needed, but nothing I deserved.
I failed her more times than I could count.I lied relentlessly.
And she always forgave me.

Until she couldn’t.

Maybe I deserved to be left behind.

* * *

Jax swept me off my feet with his disheveled hair and his easy smile.
I loved him fiercely.
He made me believe in the fairytale.

Then the walls crumbled around me.
The lies never ended.
I left him behind. I had no choice.
I mourned the loss of him.

But I moved on.
I created a new life,
Now, I was marrying someone else.

Where do we go now that he’s back?

My Review

Heartfelt Lies by Kristy Love is the second book in the Undone series. It can be read as a standalone.

“I’d watch paint dry if it meant I could spend time with her.”

Jax is our hero…seriously. His entire life he has had one love and one hope. Even when life has presented its obstacles, it’s always been Cassie. He has not been nor is he perfect by any means, but he is exactly what Cassie needs.

“He didn’t make your knees weak or your heart race. He was the safe choice.”

Cassie is the girl who’s trying to play life safe. She wants a family for her and her son, so she will take what is comfortable to make that happen.  

“If I wake up tomorrow and this is a dream, I don’t think I can go on with life.”

When we first meet our main characters we are thrust into an emotional scene that leaves us begging for more. We don’t know what has led to this moment in our characters’ lives, but we connect with their emotions and pray it will be enough to pull them through.  As the story progresses we learn more about Jax and Cassie in the past and present, offering us unique opportunities to glean more about both sides of their stories. Little by little, they own more and more of our hearts as we watch their love story play out before our eyes. 

“I’m not running away from you, Jax. I’m running too fast toward you.”

Hearfelt Lies was a wonderful story of second chance love and hope. It was as beautiful as the cover in which it is contained.  Written in dual points of view and told in past and present, I easily came to know the characters and relate to their story. For me, one of the most interesting aspects of the story was the alternating time from past to present. I felt as if I missed nothing, and could see all of their lives’ stories with clarity. Everything that happened within the first chapter of the book (their reunion of sorts, Jax’s word picture of Cassie, and Cassie’s overwhelming draw to Jax) created the exact hook I needed to bring me in and twist me up in all sorts of good ways.  Even with all the ups and downs that the characters experienced in the story, the final outcome made my heart happy.  This was my first book by author Kristy Love. I am glad I had the opportunity to read and will definitely be following her for more of her books. 

“There’s a giant hole in my heart, in my life, that I know you’d fill.”

Excerpt

“Jax,” I breathed. I reached behind me, grasping for the door handle to my backseat. When it opened, I pulled his face away from my chest. His lips were red from thoroughly kissing me. His chest was heaving and his eyes were glazed. I smiled and tugged on his hand. I climbed inside my car, lying back on the seat. He crawled on top of me and shut the door behind him. Without pause, he helped me out of my light jacket and tossed it in the front. He pulled my shirt over my head and went back to attacking my breasts. I wrapped my arms around him and ran them over his back. He had never been skin and bones, but now he had more definition. He wasn’t too bulky, there was just enough there that my arousal kicked up another five notches.

I pulled on his shirt, whipping it over his head. He smirked at me, taking my bra off.

“Cassie,” he said, his voice reverent and so full of want that it almost hurt to hear it. “Fuck. I never thought I’d be able to touch you, kiss you again. Now that I started, I’m not sure I can ever stop.”

“Don’t stop. Don’t ever stop.”

He leaned down and pulled a nipple into his mouth. I cried out. His hand slid down my abdomen, my muscles twitching as he moved over them. He popped the button of my jeans and slid down the zipper before slipping his hand inside. He traced his finger over my panties. He groaned.

“Fuck, Cassie.” His whole body went still and stiff, his head buried in my neck. “I think I’m going to die. Right here, right now. If I wake up tomorrow and this was a dream, I don’t think I can go on with life.”

“It’s not a dream, Jax. I’m here, with you.”

He regarded me and the pain in his eyes caused my heart to squeeze painfully. It seemed as though he was about to say something, but instead, he devoured my lips and slipped a finger inside me. I arched my back, ripping my lips away from his. The sensation, the feeling, it was so much. Too much.

“God, you feel so good.” He buried his face in my neck again and kissed, licked, nibbled it. My mouth was wide open, as were my eyes, as he moved his fingers inside me magically. I couldn’t think about anything but the feel of his fingers and the way he was playing my body like a guitar. He still knew exactly how to touch me in such a way that, before long, my hips were bucking against his and I screamed out his name.

He slipped his hand out of my jeans, moving up to brush my hair out of my face. He studied my face as though he’d never see it again. My mind was still coming back down to Earth as he helped me put my bra and shirt back on. Before I knew it, he was sitting next to me, pulling his shirt on. He kissed my lips, long and passionate and so amazingly. I wanted his hands on me again, even though they’d been gone only been a few minutes.

“I don’t want to leave you, Cassie, but if I don’t leave now, we’re never leaving this parking lot,” he said, then pressed a kiss to my forehead.

I wrapped my arms around his neck, kissing him. I never wanted this feeling to end.
