Jesse Connor lost his wife 2 years ago in an accident and he’s still grieving. He keeps himself numb with long work hours and meaningless sexual encounters, but not even the unconditional love of his precious little girl has been able to bring him back to the man he used to be.
Millie and Jesse feel the attraction to one another, but they know this can be messy, not to mention that Jesse only want to be friends with benefits. He knows she deserves more than that and tries to stay away, but once they fall into each other’s arms it becomes harder and harder to stay away.
This is my first read by this author and I have to say I just loved this story. I was hooked up from the prologue and it was hard for me to put down, but, more than that, to see it come to an end.
I loved Millie and Jesse and, though I wanted to throat punch him more than once throughout the book because of his push and pull behavior and also because even a blind man could see what was right in front of his face, I also understood his grief and the difficulties he was confronting to move on. Despite this fact, I still loved him because he had amazing qualities as well. Then there’s Millie with her big heart full of love for them all, his amazing family and little Addy with an insight that went way beyond her years.
Box of Hearts is one of those books I come to read not knowing what to expect and left me with a great aftertaste. It was an enjoyable story full of candor and family love. It is funny, heartfelt and thoroughly romantic and I can’t wait to come back to Connor Ranch!

I need to start by telling you a bit more about our main couple :) and by that I mean I have to start with Millie :) oh how I loved her ;) she was so sassy and hilarious :) which is truly astounding especially after you take into consideration that her last relationship ended in a truly spectacular way... and I don't mean that in a good way... don't worry, it's nothing tragic :) so after deciding that she needed a change, she became a home school teacher to a young girl on another continent :) more about that little angel in a second ;) and of course she develops a huge crush on that girl's dad... what I loved about it, is that she openly admits to herself how unlogical and crazy is her instant attraction to him, but there's nothing she can do about it :) now about Jesse... yeah... I had some issues with him... throughout a big part of the book his behaviour was definitely leaning towards... how to put it mildly without cursing... ;) he was a jerk... and yes, once you know the whole story about why he is a single dad now, it helps you to understand him better, but I am not really a fan of this type of personality... in his defense there were certainly some very swoonworthy moments as well... ;)
Their relationship is actually one of the things I struggled with... there is a lot of push-and-pull between them... attraction and chemistry is off the charts, but at the same time there is also this whole we-cannot-be-doing-this attitude... and when it comes to my personal preferences as a reader, I don't like those types of interactions... don't get me wrong, I'm sure that a lot of you guys will have no problems with it... some people love the angst and the drama... I'm just not one of them :) but there were some really wonderful moments between them that I loved, so it wasn't only the struggles... ;) especially since it actually takes some time for them to get together... the book takes place over the span of a few months to be exact :) and I definitely loved watching how Millie starts to feel more comfortable and grows closer to everyone :)
When it comes to secondary characters, I need to name two of them :) first one is of course Addy, Jesse's daughter :) she's about four years old and just the cutest little thing :) she's very smart and I adored her... especially when you get to the part when the title of this book makes sense... *sighs dreamily* I won't say what it is, but it's so adorable I couldn't stop smiling once I read about it :) another one is Garratt, Jesse's younger brother... I am totally hoping he will get to be the hero of the sequel in this series... and if not the sequel then definitely somewhere along the way :) he was absolutely fantastic and I need to read about his happy ending :) there were of course quite a few others but these two absolutely stole my heart :)
All in all it was a really good book :) it was such a quick read for me, mainly because the writing style was hilarious and entertaining... ;) so even if certain characters *coughs* Jesse *coughs* did some things that made me want to smack them over the head... ;) I still couldn't put it down :) especially since it was actually written in 2 POVs, which means we got chapters from Millie's perspective, as well as Jesse's... :) and I have to say that being able to get a glimpse into his thoughts definitely helped me understand him... to the point I didn't hate him and was able to not throw my book away from frustration... ;) fortunately the ending was worth it... and that epilogue... *sighs happily* it's just what I like the most :) so even though I don't think it was perfect, I definitely had a lot of fun reading it and can honestly recommend this book to you guys... :)
