Heartshaped Series #1
Jemima Dewberry wears her heart on her sleeve. Her weakness for bad boys, coupled with her track record for making bad decisions has led to endless heartbreak. The only trouble is, she can’t seem to kick the habit.
On top of that, her “dream” job at Yorkshire Portions magazine hasn’t turned out to be what she’d hoped, and she seems to have developed the knack of annoying her boss without even trying. It doesn’t help that the new girl seems to have taken an instant dislike to her. All that’s keeping her there are her best friends Anna-Lisa and Aidey, who have picked up the pieces of her shattered heart more times than they care to remember.
When Jemima’s latest boyfriend turns out to be no better than the rest, the hurt and humiliation is almost unbearable. She declares she’s finally through with love, and swears off men for life. But when charismatic Caspar De Verre walks into the office with his dangerous good looks and mesmerising smile, she’s utterly captivated, and her promises to Anna-Lisa and Aidey not to let her heart rule her head are soon forgotten.
But is Caspar all he seems? Anna-Lisa and Aidey have their doubts. And Herbert, the happy-go-lucky black Labrador Jemima’s looking after, doesn’t seem to like him either.
As Jemima falls for Caspar’s charms she finds herself being forced to confront the struggle between her head and her heart. But which one will prove the most powerful?
And will Jemima get the happy-ever-after she so desperately craves?
Parents have a big influence on children’s lives. When you are already a bit older, you see better what’s right and what’s wrong, but young children don’t see it that way and pick up everything whether it’s good or bad.
Often people are following their hearts even when their heads scream ‘nooooooo’ and their gut agrees with their head, but how can something that feels so good be bad at the same time?
You can totally be swept off your feet and be on cloud nine, but it’s also very important that you keep your cool too, because otherwise you can find yourself in very murky water.
Sometimes you find what you were looking for right in front of you,but it can take years before you realize it.
I really enjoyed this story. The author has created great characters and treated us to a lovely book. 4 stars.
