{NA Minute Review} Where My Heart Breaks by Ivy Sinclair

{NA Minute Review} Where My Heart Breaks by Ivy Sinclair

Where My Heart Breaks
If there were a course in screwing up your life, Kate Spivey would get an A+.

Trust is in short supply for Kate at the start of the summer before her senior year of college. Her parents sentenced her to spend it under the watchful eye of her aunt at the famous Willoughby Inn. It was further proof that she was a prisoner in, and not the decision maker of, her life. Nothing she does is good enough to prove that she learned from the mistakes of her past.

Almost immediately, Kate finds that her new summer home holds another person who understands the unfairness of her situation better than most. Reed Black has had his own share of tragedy and regrets, but instead of trying to fight his reputation, he embraced it.

Sparks fly between Kate and Reed, but his mixed signals remind Kate that she needs to watch her step. He is one temptation she can't afford to indulge in, no matter how strong her attraction to him. If she isn't careful, she'll lose more than her heart. (Blurb via Goodreads)

{Rating} 4/5 -- I really liked it!
"It sounded like an explosion from the rear of the car, and I yelped in surprise." (page 1, line 1)
A great new adult read for the summer. For Kate it's a second chance, a summer where she can find herself, to learn that everyone makes mistakes but they don't define you, that you can change your life if you want to.

Reed. Hot. Smart. Plays havoc on the heart with his hot/cold, hot/cold treatment. He's my favorite type of guy, a guy with layers, with secrets. I didn't think we saw nearly enough of him.

I loved Kate's BFF Millie. She's awesome. She's the supportive friend, the kick you in the butt if you need it and drive all night to be with you if you need her, friend.

I liked the premise and Sinclair's writing, especially how she used the idea of a story inside a story. I will definitely be reading more by Ivy Sinclair.
