Book Review ~ "Mending Hearts" by Kimberly Krey

Mending Hearts by Kimberly Krey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source: Received to Review
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance

Book Description:  Candice is through with married life and all it entailed:
infertility, an adoption gone wrong, and the death of her husband’s twin brother. Now that they’ve been separated for nearly a year, Candice is finally ready to set Logan free. But when he steps back into her life, Candice begins to have second thoughts. Even
though she hasn’t fully healed from the heartache she endured over their married years, she can't
fathom the thought of losing him a second time. Can Candice let go of past hurts and give Logan a second chance, or will her fears keep them apart?

Logan has spent the months of separation giving Candice the space she needed. But when he discovers that Candice is about to file for a divorce, he decides he better take action quick. He didn’t spend the best years of  his life with this woman, only to let her slip away. Yet just when the opportunity comes again – his chance to finally make things right – an entirely new force threatens to tear them apart. Will opposition keep the heart-broken couple from getting back together or will they have the strength to break through the barriers, no matter what their future might bring?

My thoughts: First thing that captured my attention about this book was the cover. It is perfect! I loved the scene of Logan and Candice running through a field of flowers. They are a couple who got lost in the fog of infertility. Their lives and romance were hi-jacked by their inability to have a baby.

This is the second book in Kimberly Krey's Second Chances trilogy. The book focuses on Logan and Candice trying to overcome past hurts and disappointments to give their marriage another chance. This book can be read without reading Rough Edges Allie's Story.

Logan was my favorite character of the book. His love is unconditional, he just doesn't know how to convince his wife of the fact. He tried to play by her rules, but realized that he needed to change the rules in order to keep her.

The book is about hope. It is about rediscovering dormant love and struggling to make a marriage work.

Kimberly Krey knows how to make the romance steamy while keeping it in the clean category. The physical attraction is strong, the kissing intense, but everything else is alluded to and behind closed doors.

About the Author (Taken from Goodreads):  Kimberly Krey specializes in writing "romance that’s clean without losing the steam!" 

She’s a reader of good, clean romance, a lover of family time and Diet Coke, and the ultimate hater of laundry. She discovered her love for writing in college when given a creative writing assignment. She still remembers sitting in the lamplight’s glow, crafting words to depict the vision in her head. That assignment sparked a passion within her. It took years to return to that passion, but now that she has, she counts it among her greatest blessings.
