Book Description

True love can blossom in unexpected places. This is Jaden pretending not to notice. . . .

Jaden McEntyre and Parker Whalen are a wrong fit from the start. Jaden is driven and focused, Harvard Med School within reach. Parker has a past—a reputation—and the rumors about his mysterious habits abound. So there’s no reason why, when they're assigned to work together on a project in English, they should discover they have anything in common, or even like each other, and they definitely shouldn't be falling in love.

As they bond over Edith Wharton’s tragic novella, Ethan Frome, the “bad boy” vibe Parker plays begins to dissipate. Soon, Jaden finds herself shedding her own “good girl” image: sneaking around to be with him, confiding in him, and ultimately falling hard for this leather-wearing, motorcycle-driving loner who plays into the rebel stereotype.

Still, Jaden can't shake the feeling that there's more to Parker than he's letting on. He's hiding something from her, and discovering the truth means reconciling the Parker she's grown to love with the person he really is. Because it's possible that his life inside the classroom—everything Jaden knows—is one, massive lie.

CROSS MY HEART, told from Jaden's point of view, is a 76k-word/300-page contemporary romance for young adults. Bonus features include the official playlist and an interview with the author.

* In addition to spending more than 100 days on the Amazon Teen Top 100 Bestseller List in its first year of release, CROSS MY HEART was also a 2011 Goodreads Choice Awards Nominee for Best YA Fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended April 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a very well read teenager, and i've heard almost every story in the book. Except this one. What I love about this book were the unexpected plot twists, the length (It actually lasted me more than a day!) and the epilogue. Books that end with the fairytale kiss aren't very relatable. I would highly recommend a teenage girl read this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, go read it now! June 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to admit I wasn't completely convinced I was going to love this novel when I first came across it, but something was compelling me to give it a go, and after reading the sample I didn't look back. I was sucked into the book and finished it in one sitting (which was basically my whole day). As the clichés go, I laughed and I cried with the characters (which doesn't make it any less true), and I came out convinced that this book would stay in my memory. It is a gem, and I would advise anyone to read it. (Go do that now!)

I'm not going to go into the plot itself as the product description gives you all the information you need, and I don't want to spoil anything for anyone.

What I am going into is the relationship that develops between Jaden and Parker. Don't expect a quick romance, as Jaden and Parker don't really get along in the beginning. In fact, they have barely spoken to each other, and when they're partnered for an English project, especially Jaden has a problem with Parker's indifferent attitude. But their relationship blossoms, while discussing English literature, and slowly a connection starts to form between them. Parker doesn't seem like the bad guy everyone makes him out to be, and Jaden starts to genuinely enjoy spending time with him and looks forward to the moments they spend together.

Because of their moments together, Jaden starts to question things about her life that she always took at face value, and she discovers herself throughout the novel in a way she never expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising April 29, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Honestly? I purchased this because of the price, needing something cheap to read on a family vacation. It was well worth the money. Although the first half I thought was pretty predictable I read the whole thing through... The ending was a bit far fetched but definitely a good page turner.

I only wish the author had more books out for me to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful!! May 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I snuggled up on the couch and read this book in a day. I couldn't put it down! Immediately I was intrigued by Parker. He was so mysterious, I wanted to know what his deal was, his secret. I must say I was surprised. It's not often that I'm completely blind-sided by a plot twist but that was the case in cross my heart.

I also loved Jaden. She was so driven, her goals so clear that in some ways I envied her, the way she knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life. But having said that, life isn't always perfect...

The family dynamics were interesting and felt very real as did the friendships and relationships. Speaking of relationships, this book certainly satisfied the romantic in me. Overall this is just a wonderful, wonderful book and I recommend it to anyone who loves a good romance. Not just for young adult readers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Book August 13, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was really good to read. There were alot of hidden messages and the twist was totally not expected. It was clever and the title 'clicked' for me towards the end. It was a sweet YA Romance that deserved its reviews. Well done Katie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!! May 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I know a book is good when I stay up late into the night reading it when I am supposed to be asleep because I have to work the next day! But I couldn't put it down. It was very, very good, I loved it. Loved the characters, they were real and likeable, loved the mystery of what's going on, and even though I had read the reviews before and KNEW about the twist, I didn't see it coming. The romance was believable and not too icky-sweet. This is a must read!!
