This first half of this book I would give 5 stars. Second-chance love stories are my absolute favorite. I enjoyed this storyline. I loved Estelle. I liked hearing about her art. So why 3.5 stars?

I got whip-lash from the way Oliver would act. He was never 100% convincing, to me, that he thought Elle was "the one". About 25% of the way through Oliver says, "It’s my turn … I’ve let you go a million times before, and I don’t want to miss this chance with you.” Swoon! I instantly got excited, I thought "Yay, he is going to fight for her and prove himself." And then...it just never really happens. Oliver still hesitates plenty of times. I didn't understand his hesitation. He already knew how it felt to lose Elle. I thought he learned his lesson and would do anything to be with her. By the time he was "all-in", I was bored. It took so long to get to that point and when it did finally happen I was confused how he got to that point. I'm glad he did, I was happy for Estelle. But as a reader, I felt "Where did this Oliver come from?" There wasn't some major character development scene that happened, it was just there all of a sudden. Also, he always lets random girls hang all over him, yet when Elle has a guy hitting on her, he instantly gets angry and pulls her away.

Ultimately, I thought this story was a good example of "Actions speak louder than words". Oliver can tell me 100 times he loved Elle, but his actions (his hesitation) meant more to me. I liked all the side characters. They were entertaining and made me laugh. Hopefully, we see Mia and Jensen's story.

This book was pretty good. It had a lot of the right things working for it - a bad boy H, a sweet h, funny/great friends for both h and H and a really good storyline of 2nd chance love.
What didn't work for me was the pace of their developing rekindle. I never really felt the solidifying connection. The moment where you KNOW these two are perfect for each other. Every time these two would kiss or touch, they always retreated and then would hook up or flirt with someone else. It went back and forth for about 80% of the book. It got very tiresome and lost me several times due to the slow and questionable progression.
I also have a trigger about the H sleeping with others while he pines away for h (while he's trying to win heroine he still sleeps with others). The h is constantly catching him flirting just after that had a "moment" or shared a kiss and she thought he would want her. Then she'd see that and figure he was still just playing his games.
Don't get me started on the outrages amount of times these two had to "restart" dating because they could never get on the same page.
Again, IMO, this had a lot of the right ingredients for a great romance, it just didn't pan out for me.
It was very hot and steamy, but that's about it.
I would be interested in the other characters stories.

Estelle "Elle" Reuben is picking up the pieces of her shattered heart as she slowly lets go of the remainders of a shared life with her boyfriend of three years and deceased fiancé Wyatt. After putting their house up for sale, she moves in with her brother Victor. What she didn't expect was to cross path with Oliver Hart again, her older brother's best friend and the guy who broke her heart way back. But despite a rather tumultuous shared past, Oliver is dead set on reconnecting with her.

What I loved about this book:

Nothing too outstanding to mention here...

What I felt needed improvement:

The two moronic main characters
The dull plot
Some scenes and fact didn't feel real

Kaleidoscope Hearts reviews flooded my Goodreads feed a while back and I thought I might as well give it a go myself. And while - as you will have guessed - the many reviews on Goodreads were highly positive, I must say that for once, I can't follow suit and share the same high opinion of this book.

Unfortunately, most of that was due a week plot and to the utterly moronic and completely anti-heroic main characters.

First, let's discuss the plot. Estelle is mourning her fiancé Wyatt, who she had been with during the last 3 years. She moves back to her brother's place (in the same town, if I dare say) and suddenly, out of the blue, she runs into her former crush Oliver, who also happens to be her brothers best bud. Yeah, like they never would have met before that day, since they live and work in the same city and all... But anyway, this encounter brings old feelings up again, and turns out Estelle is still mourning what could have been with Oliver all those years ago before she met Wyatt.

So Estelle really bothered me.

"Love is beautiful, shattering, moving, haunting. Love is everything."

This book is packed with all the words to show you this quote. Love isn't always who you choose to share it with. Sometimes, no matter what the circumstances, love chooses you.
I love books like this one. Ones that are full of angst, forbidden love and heartache. It has been a long time since I clenched my Kindle tight, fought for two fictional characters to be together and forged through sleep to get to the end.

"The hearts I make are shattered, but whole. They're kaleidoscopes that beam under the sun. They signify hope in love when you've lost it because, like love, you can look at a kaleidoscope a thousand different ways and find something new every time. Shattered or not, if you look carefully enough, you'll find something beautiful in them, and all beautiful things are a little broken."

The beauty of this story can't be expressed through words. You really need to read it for yourself to grasp the depth of these characters and their story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I cried through the entire last chapter and epilogue and wish there were more. This book is a beautiful story of shattered, broken love and how sometimes defying the odds is worth the risk.
