This Heart of Mine (Chicago Stars #5) by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
First of all, I just have got to say, this was such a great read! This book has everything that makes a great romance and more.
Molly and Kevin’s story is a real fascinating one. The journey on how they got there is not a easy one.I thought it was sweet that they finally found what they needed in each other. At first glance, Molly and Kevin couldn’t be further apart from one another if they tried. A children’s books author, her characters you find are closely linked with Kevin’s escapades over the years, Molly has had a huge crush on Kevin as long as she can remember. Not that football jock Kevin even knows she exists. With the continuous string of the doll faced women with no brains of their own that parade through his life, Kevin seems to be at the top of his game but how quickly Molly will knock him off his game.
Molly tends to hold on a streak that has got her into trouble in the past. This is what ends her up in Kevin’s bed, seducing him in his sleep and an outraged Kevin who gets rightfully upset about being taken advantage of. Kevin makes Molly promise to him that if there ever were consequences of their coming together she would let him know, which of course Molly doesn’t when she finds herself pregnant with Kevin's baby. Finding out turns Kevin's' world up side down.
After getting married, Molly suffers a miscarriage which quickly spins her world in a downward spiral. Kevin who shakes her out of depression, takes her off on a trip to Wind Lake, and finds herself running the quaint bed and breakfast that Kevin inherits from his aunt which Kevin wants nothing to do with. Kevin and Molly finally find friendship, and finally give in to there desire for one another.
I think I might have liked Kevin too much. I could connect to both of them and I really enjoyed this fabulous journey. With so many ups and downs and the funny playful moments to keep you locked it. I really liked the part about those Daphne books Molly was writing. That was really cute and creative and showed how much he actually meant to her.
The characters are so lovable. This book just happens to be witty and adorable.Highly recommended for those who love a good romance with a witty cast of characters that could make you laugh and fill you up with plenty of emotions. Funny and heartwarming, this is must read for romance lovers.
