I Kind of Loved It!
What a beautiful and heartfelt story. Steeling My Haart follows Emma after she had her heart broken and works to find herself.
Emma’s life is saved on one fateful night when tragedy and devastation strikes her home town. Her saving grace was her boyfriend and love of her life Charlie, but after a magical night she wakes up to find Charlie gone. Eight years later, Emma is working on moving forward with her life and making a name for herself, never expecting to see Charlie again.
I loved how even though there was romance in this book, it wasn’t the focal point of this story. This story was a heartfelt story about finding yourself, and taking on things you never expected. With the help of Bruce and other friends Emma realizes what she has been missing out on in life and sees a new future for herself, then things get uprooted again for Emma and her life changes once more.
I really loved getting to read Emma’s story and my heart hurt for her multiple times in this book. She is a strong character but has had a lot of bad thrown at her throughout the years. Each bad thing that has happened though has happened for a reason and only makes her a better person.
Charlie is unlike any character I’ve read, he is sweet, endearing, and has a heart of gold. The things he has done to prove himself to Emma as so heartwarming and beautiful, that if he wasn’t a fictional character, I’d snatch him up immediately. Never once has he stopped loving Emma, and he isn’t the boy who left her years ago. I absolutely loved his character and the love he has for Emma.
This story is strong and gripped me from the very beginning. I was unable to put this book down and was so in love with this story that I was sad to see it end. This is a beautiful story and I love Bruce, Emma, and Charlie and everyone else in this book. The ending of this book is amazing, and the epilogue.. WOW! I need to know what happens next even though there is an HEA!
This is the perfect book to one-click and curl up in bed and read all day. It is an emotional and beautiful story that really gripped at my heart-strings!
