July 17 - BLOG TOUR STOP - Mangled Hearts


Francesca and Cade
Can two loves find their way back to each other despite an addiction and a hardened heart? Will their love overcome it all?
Francesca Taymon is young, successful, and broken. A tragic accident years ago haunts her to this day, and she blames only one person--the one that holds her heart. When she finally gets her first case, will she be able to handle seeing him again? Can she do her job and keep her heart intact?
Cade Kelling doesn’t take life seriously. He’s reckless and irresponsible, drinking all his problems away.
When his parents bail him out for the last time, will he be able to handle seeing Francesca after all of these years? Will he be able to tell her what really happened that night 5 years ago or will he lose her forever?
And the most important question….
Can these mangled hearts be mended?

Excerpt from - Mangled Hearts

I knew it was stupid and reckless to bring myself into her life. I was the worst kind of guy for her, into all the wrong things, but something about her made me want to be…more. The first time I saw her beautiful face was during lunch. She was stuck in a little hole in the wall, her nose deep into a book. Her dark blonde hair fell around her face, and she absent mindedly pushed it behind her ear, not once looking up from her book. People walked around her, came close to stepping on her, completely ignored her…and all I could do was stare. I couldn’t tear my eyes away. Two weeks after that, I’d followed her bus to the next bus stop. I prayed to be the one driving her home someday soon

2 Chicks and a Blog REVIEW

This Chick got an ARC of the Book Mangled hearts and let me just tell you, I loved the evolution of the story.
Cade is a mess; emotionally, physically, and mentally. With a strained relationship with his father, he finds his way into the darkness every single day with alcohol and drugs. But by some miracle he still finds in him to find the light with Francesca.  Can he overcome his addictions,? Fix his relationship with his father and be everything his family need him to be?
Francesca is our heroin. She has been through hell and back, with the death of a close family member and her constantly blaming our area bad boy, she has guarded herself away from everyone. Can she overcome her undying anger towards this man and find her one and only love?
“After years of losing what they had in each other, can Cade and Francesca mend their Mangled Hearts and love again?“
This chick gives 3.5 stars
