Review: Jaded Hearts by Olivia Linden #MulticulturalRomance #ContemporaryRomance

The Blurb

At 24 years old, Jade Spencer's life has hit a brick wall. Haunted by the mysterious abandonment of her mother, she found it was easier to live in the shadows of someone elses expectations. From the strict authority of her grandmother, the unwillingly guardian to Jade and her brother, to a controlling fiance who she can't seem to please, denying her feelings has been a necessary coping mechanism. Reality has suddenly come crashing in under the strain of denying her own dreams for so long, and for once, Jade is ready to live life by her own rules.

It's time for a fresh start. Turning away from the disappointment of her past, Jade ditches her shady fiance and packs her bags for New York City. With help from her aunt, she looks forward to her new future, her fabulous apartment in the city, a new job, and new experiences. Two fated encounters complicate her world when they both lead to unexpected and powerful emotions. She struggles with her desire to embrace these new feelings, and her habit of denying what she truly wants. In this not so classic love triangle, with a hint of mystery, Jade learns the hard way that sometimes intentions can mean everything and nothing at all, and no matter how far you run from the past, it's never too far behind.

Will she find love or will she leave a trail of jaded hearts? Love, secrets, and lies are all on the menu.

My Review
This story was wonderful. When I think of a true love triangle, I think of something like what Ms. Linden has written. Where true love is involved, and so is the stress of indecisiveness.

She absolutely shocked me with the action/adventure ending. I didn’t see it coming and that made it more enjoyable.

Here is what you should expect: passion galore, sweetness abounding, a make you want to slap him ex, a brother you will adore, action that will surprise you, and a heroine who isn’t afraid of change, but is unsure of her heart.

I’m off to read book 2 in the series. 

I give this novel four out of five suitcase shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased this book from Amazon.
