Book Description

Tragedy ripped the security from her life. Left a single mother, Alexis's fear of loss insulates her from the rest of the world. Her best friends from college and close family are the only people she keeps close.

A man from her past has always been in love with Alexis. He’s never met anyone that measures up to her. Garrett is a musician, who never really imagined he’d have the fame and fortune that he's found. But, even with that, what he's always wanted is out of reach... or is it?

When Garrett and Alexis meet up by chance a relationship begins. Neither expected what happens. She can’t be sure she’s ready for the complications a relationship brings. He will have to work overtime to win her heart without any assurances it will be successful.

Alexis is learning about life without Jed, and is feeling more secure with parenting on her own. Garrett appreciates his fans and is enjoying his life on the road but misses having a private life. The lives they have built separately leave little room for a budding relationship, but their hearts won’t take that into consideration.

Will the cards they’ve been dealt get in the way of a love that is meant to be? Is love enough to overcome loss and heartbreak? Can they accept all that the other is, without feeling like they are living in the shadow of their former lives?

About the Author

Felicia Lynn is a transplanted Florida girl, born and raised, who lives just north of Atlanta, GA with her husband, daughter, dog and cat. She spends most of her days holed up in a cozy chair with a cup of tea and her laptop, writing about the characters that live in her head. When she’s not writing you’ll find her hanging out with her family and friends! She loves reading, taking long walks, chatting with her Facebook family, and listening to music, especially live music. A self-declared lover of all things baseball, she is obsessed with every aspect of the game!!! 
 Felicia writes contemporary romance, because love stories make people happy. Even in the midst of anguish and turmoil, true love can turn life around, and the process is beautiful. Most of Felicia's stories are based on real life experiences, which she embellishes to tell a story. She is currently working on her second novel, titled Love’s Learning Curve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just beautiful!! October 13, 2013
By Amanda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I could not have loved the lead Garrett more if she tried. He is the ultimate and has now become my #1 book boyfriend. Believe me that was a hard role to overthrow since Kellan Kyle has been there for 3 years now. Felicia has mad talent and it amazes me that her first book out is this fantastic! Not that I expected less but was so pleasantly surprised. These characters came to life easily and I did not want to put this book down for anything. The story was beautiful and so full of love and passion. I love Garrett like crazy and will go to sleep tonight envisioning him singing Wanted by Hunter Hayes to me ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Sweet story October 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I wasn't sure what to expect this book, but it is amazing! You start off with Alexis who is dealing with the loss of her husband right when they are celebrating their 4th anniversary. It fast forwards to 18 months after, and she is still grieving hard. She's managed to skip out on her annual girls' weekends, but this time, with the help of her sister in law and one of her best friends, Whitney, they get her up and out of the house.

Once getting "away" (which was only an hour away, baby steps, Alexis) she realizes how much she really needed it and begins to slowly feel a little bit better. What she didn't expect, was to run into Garrett McKenna, a "friend" from college. She always thought of him as a friend, even though she had a crush on him, she thought he never did and still doesn't see her as more. She couldn't be farther from the truth.

Alexis is a very strong woman, and refuses to let anyone take care of her, much less take control of her life, but her brother and a few of her friends try very hard to do so, especially when it comes to her love life. Everyone but Alexis can see how much Garrett cares about her.

Garrett is a big country music star, but feels like he is missing something from his life. Deep down, he really doesn't care about the fans and the fame. He just wants to write and sing his music. He wants a family, and bends over backwards trying to prove to Alexis that she is what he truly wants.

My favorite line - "I crazy love you! I crazy miss you! I crazy want to kiss your sweet face!"

And we certainly cannot forget about Sierra. She was only 3 when her daddy died. Now she will soon be 5, and is struggling with not having a daddy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Listen in While Garrett serenades Alexis September 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Felicia's debut novel will have you going from singing the "blues" to "Walking On Sunshine".

Follow Alexis' journey as we meet her during one her lowest points after losing her best friend and confidant in her husband to finding a new love in an old college friend Garrett, who just happens to be the hottest singer in country music.

You will meet her beautiful daughter Sierra and a whole cast of characters that will have you in stitches. The support system Alexis has consists of her sometimes overprotective brother, his brood and her three besties that would go to the ends of the Earth for each other. There are also great supporting characters that you will fall in love with.

Then there's Garrett...who is the epitome of today's hottest country music star. Watch as he takes his chance at the what he considers THE girl that got away!!

I agree with others in saying this deserves more than 5 stars...Congrats Felicia and can't wait to see what you have in store for us next!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Garrett is perfect! March 5, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
Tied Up In Heartstrings is the first book in the series Heartstring Series by Felicia Lynn. It is a standalone book, written from Garrett and Alexia’s POV.

When you choose a book, you may tend to stay away from books with particular issues like cheating, rape, abuse, poverty, or whatever is your trigger. Death of a spouse is hard one for me and makes me uncomfortable, and not in a good way. Tied Up In Heartstrings is about Alexis’s loss of her husband, who’s her best friend, and trying to live afterwards. The author did an excellent job telling an authentic story about Alexis. The story has just the right blend of loss and heartache without gutting you.

Garrett is a country western superstar. He is swoon worthy. He always knows just the right thing to say or do. His words are perfect. He’s so romantic. After reading about him, you might question every love interest in your life!

Here’s the issue I had with the book: Alexis. I understand her past. Her rough past influences her decisions on her present. But as a 29 year old woman who is a college graduate, mother and wife to a loving husband with strong independent friends, she is still really insecure. She is constantly saying how she’s not good enough. Thankfully she has awesome friends, brother and his wife to support her and not allow her to self-destruct in the story. Everyone in the story said how strong she was, but I really didn’t feel it. She would talk a big talk about being independent, and then gives in as soon as someone pressed the issue.

Overall, I did like the story. Alexis and Garrett are a great couple with an incredible love.
