Mangled Hearts by Felicia Tatum Blog Tour & Giveaway

Get Mangled Hearts:       Barnes & Nobles


Francesca and Cade
Can two loves find their way back to each other despite an addiction and a hardened heart? Will their love overcome it all?

Francesca Taymon is young, successful, and broken. A tragic accident years ago haunts her to this day, and she blames only one person--the one that holds her heart. When she finally gets her first case, will she be able to handle seeing him again? Can she do her job and keep her heart intact?

Cade Kelling doesn’t take life seriously. He’s reckless and irresponsible, drinking all his problems away.

When his parents bail him out for the last time, will he be able to handle seeing Francesca after all of these years? Will he be able to tell her what really happened that night 5 years ago or will he lose her forever?

And the most important question….

Can these mangled hearts be mended?


Review: 4 stars
I love Felicia Tatum and her writing.  This book is the first in a series about love, heartbreak, friendship, and redemption.  I can't wait for more.

"Anything for you, Francesca." Cade
This book starts out with her talking about nightmares she had of something tragic that happened in her past.  At first I was thinking I wish there had been a prolog letting us in on what had happened but as I kept reading I changed my mind.  I loved hoe Felicia revealed the accident and all of her feelings around it in little pieces throughout the storyline.  It made me think I knew what was happening and then want to read more to see if I was right.

So Francesca and Cade...These two have always had a strong connection that has drawn them to each other.  Within this connection they brought out the best in each other.  In high school they tried getting together but their personal issues got in the way.  He didn't want to hurt her with his drinking and she had a tragedy to deal with that clouded her view on him.

Thank goodness for Cade's dad wanting to save his son because he is the one that brought them back together after years apart.  He made sure Francesca was Cade's lawyer for a little legal issue because he said she was the only one who could get through to him.  Little did he know he was helping her career out as well.  The two reconnect and have the same strong connection and I enjoyed reading about their struggles and because of the past and how they are dealing with current issues like his drinking problem.

Can they make something out of the mess in their lives for each other?  I guess you should read it and see :)
