Your Heart to Keep

Author: Amanda Mackey
This is a stand alone novel
Genre: Romance
What would you do if the heart you loved ended up in a stranger?
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.
Holly Jenkins has a medical condition that requires a new heart. Having been on the organ registry for thirteen months, she finally gets the call she’s been waiting for.
After the surgery she begins to crave things she never has before and has the inherent need to connect with Jax and the family of Chloe.
What she doesn’t expect is the strong pull towards a guy who doesn’t want a bar of her and can’t come to terms with the fact that Holly now has his girlfriend’s heart.
It isn’t until he literally feels the pulse of his dead girlfriends, beating heart that things change…
I am married and a mother of two beautiful children, living in sunny Queensland, Australia. I’ve been reading books ever since I can remember and love all things related to books. Writing has become an extension of that and I hope to pursue a full time writing career. I currently write part-time and work as a remedial massage therapist. I love spending time with family and hope to one day travel to Italy and England.

My Review:

I really enjoyed the story line in this book.  I did have some difficulty with some of the dialogue phrasing. Some of the phrasing might be due to regional dialect that does not fit where the story is placed; the story is placed in and around Denver, Colorado.  Other than that I thought the writing flowed very well.  Jax, the hunky bad boy loses the love of his life Chloe in a tragic car accident.  Chloe happens to be a registered organ donor and the recipient of her heart is Holly. This story chronicles the Jax and Holly’s adjustments to their new lives together and apart after the operation. Luckily for these two they have their friends Micah and Leah to help them thru and push them in the right direction when they’re being stubborn.
