Editorial Reviews


This has got to be one of the best books I have ever read. The emotional connection I have with this book is unreal.
Lana is one of the best written characters I have ever came across. She remains strong even through fighting her inner demons of her past relationships. That is until that one night her whole life changed.
Then you get the pleasure of meeting Jake aka one hell of a sexy military man..
Jake, a father and soldier, lost his wife in a horrific accident. Since the accident Jake has raised his daughter by himself. Jake is afraid to feel and afraid to love. That is in until his best friend puts him in a position that helps save her life.

I would give this book 10 stars if I could. How My Heart Breaks was beautifully written. The characters grabbed my heart. Jake is by far my favorite!!!! loved loved loved the book!!!

Jake Weston had a quit life with his daughter, Hallie. He was a single dad with a five year old daughter. He was a diesel mechanic in the military. He had falling into a mundane life of work and then home to Hallie, but wouldn't trade it for anything. He loved his daughter.
Lana Washington was a thirty year old woman who had been hiding from life since her losing her grandparents. She had once been a strong and resourceful woman who had helped take care of her brother as he was growing up. All of her loved ones seem to leave her and she was just scared of losing someone else. You can't lose what you don't have. Now she just hides.
Two people who should of never met. Then one fateful night the circumstances twist into a chance meeting. He wasn't supposed to be there. Just one look into those green eyes and he knew she was special. She wanted to escape this perfect specimen of an alpha man. She didn't want these feelings. She knew she would just lose him too.
How My Heart Breaks is the first Stephanie Smith book I have read. I was not disappointed. The words of raw emotions, pain, love, and solitude jump off the pages at me. Lana is so genuinely scared of losing people she loves that she had rather build her walls up to keep people away. The feelings that Jake gave me from being a loving and attentive dad was sexy as sin. Love when those tough walls come down. Neither Jake or Lana have had good experiences in the romance department . Can they let go of their pasts to move on with their futures or will one little lie keep them apart? I loved every minute of this book. Great job Stephanie Smith. This may have been my first Stephanie Smith book but it won't be my last.

This is book three in the Try Again series. In this one we follow Lana who is Tate's sister, we met him in Wherever You Go, and a new character Jake.

Lana has had a very rough past, losing her parents and than her grandparents plus an abusive ex husband, she finds it better to stay single and live her life. Too bad life had other plans for her...she is left unconscious outside her burning house when Jake stumbles upon the scene and rescues her.

Jake hasn't had a great past either...having to come home from active duty after his wife dies to take care of their daughter Hallie. He is now a widow, single dad, and trying to figure out how to raise his daughter alone.

Months later Jake is dropping Hallie off for her first day of school and runs into Lana, who just happens to be her teacher for the about a small world! They end up starting to see each other and are great together, but Jake has this secret that's eating away at him....

“What’s so funny?” I ask as I slide inside and the girls are giggling again.
“Nothing,” they respond at the same time, giving each other mischievous smiles.
“Yeah, right,” I mumble.

These two fall into a great relationship. I love them together!! Everything is going great..until the unbelievable happens...which starts making her question everything. She doesn't think she'd survive losing Jake so she pushes him away...

“No. You need to go.”
“I need you to go,” I shout.
“I just do.”

Will Lana be able to move past her fears? Will Jake just give her up or fight to keep her? Will Lana lose the best thing that ever happened to her? Will she realize she can't survive without Jake and Hallie?

This is the third book in the series and I think you need to read them in order to really understand what is happening and how everyone is connected. This book is about facing the things that happened in your past and figuring out how to move forward. Realizing that you can’t change what happened. Finding that one person who makes realize that you want to learn how to move forward and find a way to have a future with that person. Jake is in the Army and lost his wife 4 years ago. He is a single father who hasn’t even dated anyone in the last four years. Lana has recently gotten away from and divorced her abusive husband. Lana and Jake meet when Jake’s friend rescues Lana from her house that has caught on fire. Jake’s friend calls him and tells him to come help him. He can’t be caught there. He wants Jake to say he rescued Lana. When Lana opens her eyes Jake feels this overwhelming urge to protect her and be near here. They have a one night stand and don’t think they will ever see each other again. Three months later when Jake takes his daughter to her first day of school he is surprised to find that Lana is his daughter’s teacher. Lana can’t believe her eyes when she sees Jake dropping his daughter off in her classroom. They haven’t stopped thinking about each other for the last three months. This is where the story takes off. Lana is still finding herself after everything that happened with her ex-husband. Jake learned to go after what he wanted in the army and to never give up. Lana feels like she loses anyone she loves and is scared to love Jake and his daughter and then lose them. Will Lana take and chance on Jake? Will Jake be able to convince Lana to give him a chance? I love this whole series. This book was just as great as the first two books in this series.Read more ›
