Dual Review: Forever Your Heart by Mary Whitney

Forever Your Heart CoverTitle: Forever Your Heart (Beside Your Heart #3)
Author: Mary Whitney
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Omnific Publishing

Book description:

I’m a journalist—Adam Kincaid, BBC reporter, to be exact, so I’m not going to bury the lead. I’m about to see the woman I never got over.

I know that because I’ve been back in America for years now, and I still don’t date American girls. My dad would say I’ve come to my senses, sticking to my own British patrician kind, but that’s crap. Mum, the psychologist, would more wisely say it’s my unresolved issues around Nicki. My teenage years are long behind me, yet my guilt over her remains. So I’ve avoided all things Nicki, though the irony is she’s the one avoiding me.

Maybe if we see each other, we can both move on. Could she ever forgive me? Can you forgive yourself when you hurt someone you love?

But please, don’t answer yet. I’ve jumped ahead of the story, and as a reporter, I should give you more background to get to the root of it all.

So let me tell you my story. Then you can be the judge.

NOTE: While this is the third in the series, it can be read as a standalone book.

Tiffany’s Review:
Rating: 5/5

Every time I read something from Mary Whitney I become so elated that I can barely focus on anything else. Her writing is pure magic, and her way of storytelling continuously makes my heart skip a beat. This book is no exception! My sweet and amazing Adam Kincaid is back and telling us his side of the epic love story with Nicki. The way he describes what he feels for her (“the one that got away”–kinda 😉 ) is just beautiful.

My favorite stories are the ones that feature both POVs because I think it adds to the storytelling. I like that I get to read what a man thinks about love since I can already relate to the woman’s side of things. So, reading about how Adam was heartbroken and longing to be with Nicki really made their whole journey greater. There’s something about reading a male’s POV that can make a novel even more compelling; and trust me, you don’t want to miss Adam’s because it does!

If you read the first book, you know what decision was made when they were first together and how hard it was to bear. I cried FOR. DAYS! And I mean DAYYYYS! Not all books make me feel emotions like that and when they do, I know they’re special. And what a wonderful treat it is to read about how these two find each other once again in their lives. It’s very interesting to see how they’ve changed, and how they haven’t, after so many years. Getting Adam’s take on it all is the icing on the cake. After two books, we see what he went through and how deep his affection is for Nicki. ***Once again, this is the third book in the series but it could be read as a standalone. Although, I highly recommend reading the first two because they’re absolutely fantastic, too!

I fell in love from the first page and almost burst when it ended! I could NOT for the life of me put this down, nor did I want to. When I finished, I was hungry for more and you will be too! Mary’s writing is superb and you’ll love this hot Brit! 😉

Mary wrote an incredible, breathtaking romance that will capture your heart forever! ❤

Get ready to “One-Click” Forever Your Heart on April 8th! 🙂

Amanda’s Review:
Rating:4/5

Forever Your Heart picks up right after Beside Your Heart in a story told by Adam Kincaid.  Have you ever wondered what a character was thinking during a scene, but had to infer it based upon what they said?  This what you may have experienced while reading Disclosure of the Heart (Nicki’s point of view).  Well Forever Your Heart lets you know all of the ins and outs of Adam’s mind when he was trying to win back the love of his life, Nicole Johnson.

I must admit, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when reading novel that is told from another character’s point of view.  I remember wondering where else the story could have gone.  Through Mary’s honest writing style, I fell in love with Nicki and Adan for a third time.  Nicki and Adam have a previous relationship that has scars that mirror the ones across Nicki’s body.  Just like in our lives, some scars are happy ones that we may have received in good times.  Having a cesarean birth, a scar from a once in a lifetime adventure, or scar that resulted a parent kissing it and making it better are just some examples of happy scars.  Others are marred by sadness and sometimes death.  Throughout Forever Your Heart, Nicki and Adam must deal with the scars of happiness and sadness.  They must decide if they want to add another across their hearts one more time.

Again, Mary Whitney has proved that believable, fallible characters make the most interesting ones.  Both Nicki and Adam make mistakes.  As a reader I only wished I had the power to get them both into a room and force them together.  However, they need to work things out on their own time and at their own pace.

What I found I enjoyed the most was waiting to find out Adam’s reaction to something that happened in Disclosure of the Heart.  I found out what happened when he got home or spoke with his cousin David.  I knew more about his interactions with on again-off again girlfriend Felicity.  It made his struggle to be with Nicki more sentimental. All of this happened yet I was still surprised and delighted at the end of the novel.  Only Mary Whitney could make me feel as if I were reading a completely new story.

Mary WhitneyAbout Mary Whitney:

Mary Whitney blames Laura Ingalls Wilder and Margaret Mitchell for her obsession with romance novels. At an early age, Mary fell in love with the Little House series and its dreamy hero, Almanzo Wilder, who only wanted Laura to be Laura. Like many women, Mary later graduated to the ultimate, tall and dark bad boy, Rhett Butler, who loved Scarlett despite her flaws.

Mary has lived around the U.S., and after a first career in the non-profit world and politics, she’s settled in Northern California with her husband and daughters. She spends her days writing characters she hopes somehow capture the romance of Rhett and Scarlett and Almanzo and Laura. She’s a firm believer in what Rhett says to Scarlett: “You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how.
