Close to Heart
Healing Harts #3
By: T.J. Kline
Releasing July 14, 2015.

It only took an instant for her world to come crashing down…but Heart Fire Ranch is a place of new beginnings, even for those who find their way there by accident

As the only veterinarian in town, Justin Hart doesn't have time to think about romance. So when A-list actress Alyssa Cole crashes her car outside his clinic, it's entirely unexpected when there's a spark between them he can't ignore. Still, she's a movie star, and he's just a small town cowboy.

Alyssa has learned the hard way not to believe first impressions, especially not in Hollywood. But, 400 miles from her former life with nowhere to go and no one to turn to, she places her trust in the handsome vet who comes to her rescue.

There's no denying the connection between them, but when Alyssa's past shows up at the door, will their new relationship be able to withstand the storm?

I couldn't wait to read Justin's story and finally I just finished it. So I did happen to have mixed feelings about this book.

Alyssa used to be an actress who was married and pregnant but when her cheating ex kicks her out she ends up hitting a pregnant dog and meeting Justin in front of his clinic. I know right? At first I'm like wow Alyssa has just the worst luck ever!

I thought the storyline was okay but with the ex involved it was just way too much drama. Some parts could have been taken out and the story would have been just fine. Between his control issues and the way he tries to manipulate Alyssa I was just over him being a prick.

Alyssa has been staying with Justin for a week and already falling for him. Then she goes into labor. It was one thing right after another. I did like the characters and how they ended up together and happy. It was also nice to see his sisters happy in their relationships and starting families. Justin was super sweet at times but then the other times he was being a complete ass.

You can see right away the attraction between these two but before her divorce is even filed they are putting the moves on one another. Then the miss out on 2 months because Justin doesn't trust her or want to talk to her about what was going on with her soon to be ex. It had some parts that I tears in my eyes which helped me get past some of the drama.

I am hoping baileys book will be next and she ends up with the sheriff. Overall it was a sweet read but I would start this series from the beginning to get to know the characters and grow to love them like I have.
