Jessica Ingram will find herself a little drunk, lonely and depressed and when a neighbor, Corey, knocks on her door, she will do the unthinkable, and literally jump him. While he kisses her back, he stops it and leaves. She is embarrassed at her own behavior and the next day takes over a casserole as an apology.
Corey is shocked when he approaches the neighbor, Jessica, to ask if she would be willing to help him out with his son, Max, after school on days he can’t be home when the bus arrives. Having her jump into his arms and try to seduce him was completely unexpected. Corey’s main priority is Max and his happiness.
The plot will have Jessica and Corey meeting, somewhat embarrassingly, and then she will apologize with a casserole the next day but not stay. When they discuss his need to have someone be there for Max, she readily agrees, but that discussion also turns to sexual because of her blatant advance while drunk. Corey will tell her that he isn’t looking for a relationship but is willing to have casual sex, and she agrees. When they are together, there is a strong sexual chemistry that sizzles between them. It will include some minor spanking and a bit of D/s.
“The kiss he gave her said more than any words ever could. It conveyed adulation, acceptance, protection, nurturing, patience and affection.”
Corey will open up about his life, his family and more about Max and his mother, Shelia, a woman who is all about herself. She will even become a problem for the three of them. Jessica keeps her family situation a secret and evades talking about her parents, or herself. Bedroom chats will have her thinking more about her life and what she wants to do with it now that she has a double major from college. For the first time in her life, she will apply for and be accepted for a job at the age of twenty-three.
The things that get in the way of their casual relationship include her secrets and impetuous nature. It will become a catalyst for them having a disagreement and avoiding each other. But a life and death situation will be a wake-up call for both of them.
“What he and Jessica shared, he knew didn’t come along every day, if ever for many. They both had a lot of baggage to carry over the threshold, but he couldn’t live his life wondering ‘what if.’ Despite everything, he loved her.”
Will they be able to work through their issues and face the future? Will Jessica open up and allow him into her life and learn more about her family? Will Corey be willing to take a chance on love and happiness, not only for himself and her but for his son, Max? They all will have to learn to be open, honest, and trust one another.
Jessica is spending her birthday alone and it's made her melancholy. So she partakes in more wine and pot than she would normally. Of course that's when her hot neighbor, Corey, decides to make his appearance, and Jessica's so lacking in inhibitions from the wine and the joint that she throws herself at him, pulling him into a hot kiss. He eventually ends it and lets her know what he really came over for - to ask her if she'd babysit his son, Max, occasionally. She decides to say yes to the babysitting and ends up doing, and getting, much more from him than mere babysitting.
I wanted to like The Heart Will Lead, but I just could not connect with it at all. I found Corey and Jessica to be rather bland characters who were lacking a real connection. Even their bedroom scenes were pretty boring. Not to mention that Corey ended up being a chauvinistic jerk whose reaction to Jessica's family life was horrible. The things he spewed at her were awful. And she didn't even make him grovel one bit or beg for forgiveness before she took him back. Sigh...
