Review: Heartless (Chasing Hearts #1) by Vanessa Marie

Published April 14th 2014 by House Of Attitude 

All the other girls had a normal childhood, full of Girl Scouts and sleepovers, but Charlie Evans wasn't so lucky. Her life had been spent in and out the Cardiac Care Unit and moving across the country with her military father.

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.


This Book is Rated 18+ for MATURE content and Language.

 This is my 5 star review for Heartless by Vanessa Marie for Eskimo Princess Review Blog.

Heartless is about Charlotte “Charlie” Evans and Sam Greyson. Charlie has been chased by problems with her heart since birth. She has been a member of the zipper club ever since. She has decided to live her life one day at a time. She doesn’t think that she can love and always says what is on her mind. When she meets Sam at a coffee shop after she moves back to South Carolina everything changes. Can she fight against her mind and give someone her heart? Will her heart fail before she has a chance to find love with a good man?

Sam Greyson is a high school English teacher. He is sexy, smart, and has a good heart. He doesn’t know what he is in for when he decides that he wants to know more about the beautiful girl who rides up to his favorite coffee shop on a motorcycle. When the dynamic of their relationship changes will he be able to walk away for good? Will he be able to convince her that he can make his own decisions?

I really liked this book. I laughed, I cried, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I am so glad that it is a book one and the author has decided to give us more of Sam and Charlie’s story. I don’t think that I am ready for their story to be over yet. There are so many things that I can say about the story line but I don’t think I could do it justice. What Charlie goes through is not fair but it is life and we all know life can suck sometimes. I loved Jules and Sarah; they added a level of friendship and good humor that balanced out the serious side of the novel. I found a few grammar errors but nothing that took away from the reading of the story. The errors didn’t make it difficult to read either.

If you are looking for a serious love story that isn’t always butterflies and roses, then this one would be for you. I look forward to more on Sam and Charlie in the future. Great Job Vanessa!
