For bad boy Jax, that’s exactly what happens. His lover, Chloe has died in the car accident they were both involved in. Grieving for his lost love, Jax soon discovers that she was an organ donor and her heart, the very one he vowed to love, always, has been given to a stranger.

” A¬†story full of hearts!”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Claire

I think I left my heart inside this book after I read Jax & Holly + Chloe’s story. From the first page, no, from the prologue up to the last page, I’ve got goosebumps, tears and livid fantasies that only Jaxon can relieve. Ha! But seriously, this story is full of heart, literally and figuratively. Why, my heart even screeched to a halt!

Jaxon might as well be my flavor of the month, my book boyfriend of the week, my boy toy for the day. He’s such a sweet and loving soul. I was crushed when he almost went crazy after Chloe’s death. I got angry with him when he got mad at Holly, I fell in love with him all over again when he and Holly started weaving memories together. I think I’ll have him keep my heart, too.

Holly was also a revelation. While I was really clueless about the nature of her heart condition, this book opened my eyes about the people who suffer with Marfan’s Syndrome. When she got her transplant, I thought I also had this sudden change of heart. Suddenly everything about her looked vibrant and at peace. She’s a good sport, took each day at a time, grateful for the second chance at life, even though Jax was quite a jerk to her at first.

I love, love, love this book. Amanda Mackey had poured out her heart in this story. (See, I told you this book has a lot of heart!) She unknowingly found a spot in my favorite author list. Can’t wait to read the other heartfelt and sensual stories she had penned!
