Book review: Blossoms of the Heart

Blossoms of the Heart
by Khardine Gray
Genre: Contemporary Romance
 
The most intense and passionate romance you’ll read this year.
Why do I fall for guys I can’t have?
Okay, it’s not guys –plural.
It’s just one guy.
THE guy.
When I was 18 he stole my heart.
Tai was the guy I wasn’t supposed to have…
The tattooed rebel my mother told to stay away from me.
My heart stopped beating that day.
I was off- limits to him and he was forbidden to me.
I never thought I’d see him again.
He stayed away, just like my mother demanded.
Until… fate decided to hand us an all-access card eleven years later.
Leaving it to us to work out the kinks.
We got to see what could have happened if we got together.
Then it became complicated….
The passion and heat between us is wild.
Scorching hot and consuming.
He wants more. So much more…
But I can’t give him more…
This time it’s not my mother telling me I can’t have him.
It’s life …
Because …  now I have a secret.
A secret that could tear us apart.

My Review

This story is so complicated! The characters have such a complicated life. Well, mostly Phoebe. She has a lot to deal with and she is facing this all alone. I loved our main character and I loved this book!

Let me get into the details a little bit. Phoebe and Tai have been best friends since childhood, until one event on her 18th birthday sends them apart. Now married with a very influential man, she has a decision to make: continue in a loveless marriage or confront her husband and try to start over. She takes the obvious choice, but even after being away from Jason, his power still follows her.

Years later after their last night together, Tai and Phoebe meet. Now they can finish what they never could, but do they have a future? That remains to be seen, as both have unresolved things and secrets to protect. I felt so sorry for Phoebe. She genuinely cared for Tai and she envisioned a future with him ever since childhood. He, on the other hand, took some decisions that for me were hard to understand. This is one of the reasons for which I am decreasing my rating.

While the story was very interesting and intense for the most part, I must admit there are some issues with the writing, as some parts felt like dragging. I will not make any reference to our characters’ flaws because that’s what brings them closer to us.

All in all, I liked it and I would gladly check other books by Khardine Gray, as I’ve heard her other stories are even better J Until next time, happy reading!
