Review and Giveaway: Secondhand Heart by Kristen Strassel

We're celebrating the release of Secondhand Heart by Kristen Strassel! Don't forget to enter the giveaway below!

Title: Secondhand Heart
Author: Kristen Strassel
Age: NA
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: 10/7/14


Daisy Mangold thought she had her life figured out until a roadside bomb in Afghanistan changed everything. Now a twenty-one-year-old military widow, Daisy moves back home to start over.

Cam Hunter won the reality show The Spotlight, and thought he was on his way to becoming the next big country star. But when whispers of how he won begin to surface, Nashville is less than welcoming. After he loses his record deal, Cam heads back home to open a country bar.

When Daisy meets Cam, she isn’t sure she’s ready to let go of the ghosts from her past. Cam’s ex-wife isn’t ready to move on either, and the tragedy she causes will expose Cam’s secrets and shatter Daisy’s family.

Will Daisy be able to follow her heart into a future with Cam, or will her grief keep her trapped in a past that no longer exists?

My Review

Oh so sweet...and oh so sexy...go ahead right now and add Cam to your book boyfriend list!

Wonderful, REAL characters that you'll love reading about.  I loved Daisy's character-she's my favorite from this story.  So easy to relate to, I felt like she could easily be a friend of mine.  And Cam, well you can't not like him.  His soon to be ex-wife?  Her, you'll hate.  She's written to be someone you won't like, and believe me-she lives up to that.

You'll get a full range of emotions, from sweet love to irritating mom feelings to almost outright hatred (courtesy of guess who).  But what you ultimately will end up with is a fantastic love story that you won't want to put down.  The writing flows well and keeps you interested from start to finish.

My verdict?  4.5 stars for Secondhand Heart!
