Mending Hearts by Kimberly Krey (Review Brief)

Review briefs are reviews that are on the shorter end. Normally I use them when I need to post a review, but don't have time or want to write a full one. In this case I loved the book...

Logan's Story

Candice is through with married life and all it entailed: infertility, an adoption gone wrong, and the death of her husband’s twin brother. Now that they’ve been separated for nearly a year, Candice is finally ready to set Logan free. But when he steps back into her life, Candice begins to have second thoughts. Even though she hasn’t fully healed from the heartache she endured over their married years, she can't fathom the thought of losing him a second time. Can Candice let go of past hurts and give Logan a second chance, or will her fears keep them apart?

Logan has spent the months of separation giving Candice the space she needed. But when he discovers that Candice is about to file for a divorce, he decides he better take action quick. He didn’t spend the best years of his life with this woman, only to let her slip away. Yet just when the opportunity comes again – his chance to finally make things right – an entirely new force threatens to tear them apart. Will opposition keep the heart-broken couple from getting back together or will they have the strength to break through the barriers, no matter what their future might bring?


My Review

MENDING HEARTS is possibly my favorite release from this author to date, or at least tied for favorite with Cassie's Cowboy Crave. There is a lot of depth to the story as the characters struggle to repair their marriage, or fight against repairing it in some cases. The characters felt authentic and consistent. I loved the way they were surrounded by family. I felt for their struggles with fertility and the strain that had on their marriage. The doubts and the fears of not being enough for each other. The romance was full of chemistry, sweet moments, and humor. I loved Logan and how he tried to romance and court his wife - how he didn't want to let her go. I loved that in the end they learned to trust and lean on each other. The author did a fabulous job in letting her characters struggle, hope, dream, and love. She also did so well with creating plenty of romance without pushing the line on content. This was a sweet romance with plenty of sparks. The ending was especially sweet and I'm hoping for more to come in this series!

Content: Some suggestive content due to the book context and subject matter, but clean for the genre.

Source: I received a complimentary copy through, which did not affect my review in any way.
