Mending Heartstrings Synopsis:

Just when life seems to be manageable, you’re thrown radically off course by “the one”. “The one” you weren’t expecting. “The one” who single handedly holds the key to the tattered and rusted lock to the walls surrounding your heart. Letting her into your protected sanctuary will only serve one purpose, intentional infliction of pain and heartache.
Jon is a man on a mission with only one agenda, to survive…to survive his past, and avoid letting his future be consumed by his history. It’s all really simple, until she walks into his world and turns it, on its axis. She makes him yearn for things he never wanted, or at least didn’t realize he ever would. Now his dreams and writings are consumed with the fantasy that this girl could change everything. But deep down he knows she deserves better. Better than him. Better than anyone he’s ever met.

He’s the lead guitarist for Garrett McKenna’s band. His life consists of touring, studio time, and writing music. That’s it. Staying healthy means keeping his routine, which has been easy enough until this little effervescent beauty rocks his world. Now he’s left questioning everything and doing some soul searching to decide if he’s equipped to give what he knows she needs and deserves.

Whitney avoids love at all costs. She’s not scared of it. She’s too strong to be that weak. She refuses to allow herself to lose her mind over another person, when there’s a high probability of getting her heart broken. She’s witnessed it more times than she can count, and she’s less than interested in taking the gamble.
Her strong will has served her well in life. Very few people know her secrets. She prefers to keep it that way. Her friends and family own her heart and deep devotion. She could easily do without the rest of the population but plays nice so she doesn’t appear to be the major bitch she knows she is on the inside.
Everything in her life makes sense. Her life is filled with more love and laughter than most will ever see, and it feels complete to her. She’s simply satisfied…until him.

He complicates things. His life isn’t something she understands or is willing to try to figure out. But she can’t keep her mind from wandering to the scruff faced, gorgeous guitarist, no matter how hard she tries.
He’s everything she’s never wanted, yet her heart is telling her differently. She fears she’s diving headfirst off the cliff of heartache. She’ll never recover from her brief no-strings weekend with this man. If she opens her heart it will be “the end”… no matter what. The question is what kind of ending will it be? Not all fairy tales have the happily ever after.
Candi's 4* Review:
Mending Heartstings is book 2 in the Heartstrings series by Felicia Lynn. This book is about Garrett's best friend and guitarist Jon and Alexis's best friend Whitney and takes place about a year after Tied up in Heartstrings. For the past two years Jon had been out of control and hooked on drugs and alcohol. Thanks to Garrett he finally got the help he needed and now is ready to settle down.....he wants to do that with Whitney but she is afraid it won't work out and will end up making things awkward for everyone envolved. No matter how hard he tries she continues to run away but when Jon has a motorcycle accident will it finally wake her up? Will she finally give in to what she really wants? Will Jon be able to break down those walls she holds up so high?
I really love this series and this book. I loved getting more on Garrett and Alexis and their babies. I also really loved Jon and Whitney and was pulling for them from the start. That ending....I kept trying to turn the pages but they just wouldnt go. Is that the end or is there more on Whitney and Jon?? I am crossing my fingers and hoping like crazy I will get more asap!! Amazing job Felicia Lynn!!

Tied Up In Heartstrings Synopsis

Tragedy ripped the security from her life. Left a single mother, Alexis's fear of loss insulates her from the rest of the world. Her best friends from college and close family are the only people she keeps close.

A man from her past has always been in love with Alexis. He’s never met anyone that measures up to her. Garrett is a musician, who never really imagined he’d have the fame and fortune that he's found. But, even with that, what he's always wanted is out of reach... or is it?

When Garrett and Alexis meet up by chance a relationship begins. Neither expected what happens. She can’t be sure she’s ready for the complications a relationship brings. He will have to work overtime to win her heart without any assurances it will be successful.

Alexis is learning about life without Jed, and is feeling more secure with parenting on her own. Garrett appreciates his fans and is enjoying his life on the road but misses having a private life. The lives they have built separately leave little room for a budding relationship, but their hearts won’t take that into consideration.

Will the cards they’ve been dealt get in the way of a love that is meant to be? Is love enough to overcome loss and heartbreak? Can they accept all that the other is, without feeling like they are living in the shadow of their former lives?
Candi's 5* Review:
This was such a beautiful book to read. I really enjoyed this book. Don't get me wrong, I am all for a book with a bunch of crazy drama but every once in a while its nice to just read a beautiful love story and this def hit the spot for me!!

My heart broke for Alexis from the start. Her best friend and husband Jed has just died in a plane accident leaving Alexis a widow with their 3 year old daughter Sierra alone. Fast forward 18 months and Alexis goes on a girls getaway with her BFF's from college to St. Petersburg Beach near Tampa where she runs into her college best friend and crush Garrett. (In college, Garrett had a huge crush on Alexis and her him but neither ever said anything. For Garrett, Alexis was "the girl" for him. Garrett ended up going to Nashville Tennessee and hitting it big time, he is now a country music singer.) Garrett is at the same resort because he is suppose to sing in his cousin's wedding. When they bump into each other at a bar one night during open mic night, they reconnect and hit if off from there.

I loved seeing Alexis and Garrett grow together and I loved the relationship between Garrett and Sierra. They were so sweet with each other. The song Garrett and Sierra wrote together was beautiful. I loved the epilogue. Alexis being the overprotective momma bear was so funny but I can completely understand where she is coming from :)

The secondary characters in this book were awesome!! They all showed such great support for Alexis. I kept getting several hints that her best friend Whitney and Garrett's band mate Jon were hooking up and keeping things hush hush so I am hoping that means there will be a book 2 on them!! I would def recommend this book to my friends and family!! <3

Author Bio:
Felicia Lynn, author of Tied Up In Heartstrings, is a transplanted Florida girl, born and raised, who lives just north of Atlanta, GA. She spends most of her days holed up in a cozy chair with a cup of tea and her laptop, writing about the characters that live in her head. When she’s not writing you’ll find her hanging out with her family and friends! She loves reading, taking long walks, chatting with her Facebook family, and listening to music, especially live music. A self-declared lover of all things baseball, she is obsessed with every aspect of the game!!!

Felicia writes contemporary romance, because love stories make people happy. Even in the midst of anguish and turmoil, true love can turn life around, and the process is beautiful. Most of Felicia's stories are based on real life experiences, which she embellishes to tell a story. Mending Heartstrings, the second in the Heartstrings series, will be releasing shortly. She also recently co-wrote a mystery/suspense book titled The List with professional poker player, Chris Bell. Look for more to come from those two as well.
