This was an absolutely amazing read! You need to put down your current book, RUN to your computer & buy this spectacular story by Christy Hayes. Not since reading Pamela Clare's I-Team series, have I found a Romantic/Suspense genre book that evoked such emotions as Heart of Glass. It has landed a firm spot on my Favorite Books of 2011 list.
Kate & Danny's love story is simply breathtaking. The story was SO realistic & felt so genuine that I got butterflies when they met, cried like a baby when she had to leave him & cheered when she found her way back. It was almost as if I was the one experiencing all of the ups & downs within the story & not the fictional characters. I even wanted to go into the pages & bitch-slap her sister Julia a time or two.
What I found so refreshing however, was that Danny wasn't just up & ready to take Kate back no questions asked. More often times than not, in the romance genre, problems are solved in the blink of a few pages. All issues are forgiven easily and everyone is happy go lucky and we all go riding off into the sunset. Well, I think since we all live in the real world, we know that almost NEVER happens. What was great about this story is that when Kate returns, Danny is skeptical (as he very well should be) and he guards his heart. Yes he still loves her but he realizes that sometimes that is not enough. She has to prove her trust-worthiness & love. It is a very hard road for him & her both to travel but it is a very powerful story. A story of finding your way back to someone when trust & love have been fractured but is still worth mending.
Secondly, I loved this book! People who refuse to read self published books are really missing out on a fantastic author. Can I stop my review there? I've told you what you need to know, it's a brilliant book with a lovely cover - go buy it!! Not enough info? OK, I'll give you some reasons why...
I think the one thing that stood out for me in Heart of Glass was the quality of the writing, Christy Hayes makes you feel like you're at the beach, you can feel the wind in your hair, smell the sea air and taste the salt. She has a wonderful way of writing which makes you feel like you're 'in' the story.
I loved the character of Cat, I really like strong female characters who aren't afraid to be independent and Cat embodied everything I love in my lead characters. She's had some serious knock backs and issues in her life (all of which are slowly described to us throughout the book) but she's managed to overcome them all to carve out a successful career for herself. The first few chapters of the book follow a teenage Cat who is fighting against the life her sister has planned for her, at first I struggled with her reaction to Danny and how she completely fell for him so quickly but then I thought back to my teenage years and looked at my teenage nieces, love at that age is all consuming and you do fall for someone quickly and deeply.
I also thought Danny's character was really well written, he has fallen for Cat before and although he doesn't want to fall for her again he is drawn to her when she returns and you can see the conflict that is tearing him apart.Read more ›
This book is a little different because the first part of the book is about what happened in the past and then transitions to the present toward the end. The pacing was good, and I didn't lose track of who was where and when it happened.
This book deals with decisions made when we are inexperienced at making them. Some of the scences really pulled at my heart strings. The supporting cast of characters was interesting and I hope that there is another book about Julia floating around somewhere.
I also enjoyed the author's presentation of the local beach community in contrast with the newer, wealthier developments.
Several surpises throughout and at the end. Great book to read when you want to relax and be somewhere else.
Danny fell head over heels in love with Kat Fordham six years ago. He was from the poor side of town with his father and deaf brother, while Kat lived in the rich district with her sister and her family. But that didn't stop their love for one another from blossoming, in fact they defied their friends and family both in order to be together. That is until one day when Kat tells him it's over, she also claims she never loved him after all. What Danny doesn't know, is that Kat was just try to save his job and his reputation.
You see; her sister had told her that if Kat didn't call this love affair off, she would make sure she got Danny fired and ruin his reputation in the process. Kat was still young and naive, so she didn't realize how much more Danny cared for here than he did his job. Kat also knew that Danny worked his fingers to the bone in order to help put his deaf brother through school. The deaf school that Kyle went to was very expensive and Kyle needed it to survive in this world. If Danny lost his job, Kyle would lose his schooling.Read more ›
