Okay so maybe I am caught up in a love triangle, but I’m sure as hell not running through a field of daisies in a sun dress. My name is Elizabeth and I’ve managed to avoid men for most of my life. I was ...more
At first, I connected easily with Elizabeth and understood her insecurities but after awhile, her doubt and inner dialogue annoyed me. While she wasn't a a size 0, she had two gorgeous men wanting her. I'd hoped that she'd have deepen her self-esteem and ...more
*ARC graciously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*
This was definitely a sweet story by a first time author. The writing was nice, there is a love triangle and which is most likely the reason why I kept reading. I had to know who the heroine would end up with. I felt the story was very detailed and wordy...a lot of inner dialogue. Also, the back and forth bantering between the characters just didn't seem effortless. I liked how the heroine was a size 12, she didn't ha ...more
New author, first book written!? I could not tell at all. This book is full of detail , characters are all exceptionally written and have many layers.
In this book you are not only getting romance ( a unique story at that) but you also get a bit of mystery.
Did I mention love triangle ? Not one, you get two! Both are very tastefully and well written.
I am still not sure how I feel about Simon or Spencer , and that is a good thing. I was ...more
"I like the name Belle. You love books and you’re beautiful. I would be honored to be your Beast, so long as I turn into the prince at the end,” he said as his warm eyes met mine."
Hm...this is starting to become a habit. I'm at the fifty percent mark and I'm very undecided about how I feel for the book. I cannot for the life of me get on board with any of the male leads. They both are very dull and boring. Elizabeth is pretty quirky and fun; I don't really identify with her, but I like her chara ...more
"A tale as old as time—a girl, tall and wispy, hair the color of the sun, eyes as blue as the sky, caught in a love triangle with the noblest of men…Not in this book, honey!"
I want to start this review by Congratulating M.E Gordon on writing a fantastic debut novel “Torn Hearts”. This book is a love triangle with a lot of hot mess between, a not so social socialite Elizabeth Monroe , a mysterious billionaire Spencer Salvatore and a charming photographer Simone. It will drive you crazy with ...more
Received an arc for an honest review
Debut novel?!?! I would never have guessed this was a debut novel! It was extremely well written, the story flowed and kept you interested right from the very beginning!! I mean come on, who doesn't love a love triangle, the angst, the heartbreak, all the feels! But one that's riveting with hot swoon worthy men and an arrogant curvy stubborn woman, that's where it's at!!! I loved all the characters and M.E made them al ...more
New author alert and let me tell you this author brings it. The author keeps you hooked from the beginning of this book. It's a book that will have your emotions going different directions but you will feel them! I really enjoyed this book and was sad to see it end. One of my faves for this year.
Elizabeth (Beth) has never really had to deal with guys, not by choice but due to her size a lot of guys just skip over her. She soon finds herself in a love t ...more
This book is so relatable. We all have insecurities about ourselves, and with Elizabeth she's insecure about the fact she's a size 12. To her she's just frumpy and nothing special. So when a sexy photographer & billionaire bachelor start giving her attention she can't believe it. That doesn't mean she does ...more
The only repetitive issue was seeing her go back and forth with her insecurity about being a size 12. What girl wouldn't worry but it was a bit overkill seeing her work on being fit and then seeing her unhappy about it.
The story is ...more
This was a fantastic book and Torn Hearts is the perfect title for it. I was literally torn throughout the whole entire book. Elizabeth isn’t a very social person. She is shy, quiet, and mostly tries to stay out of the limelight. Elizabeth has some issues with her looks but she doesn’t realize how truly beautiful she is. Elizabeth’s brothers already take up most of the spotlight so Elizabeth likes to keep a low profile until she is right in the center of it all.
Elizabeth is torn between two me ...more
This book left me torn as the title suggest. I am not a big fan of love triangles. I often find myself not bonding with one or more of the characters because I don’t like the way a character is being treated or I am ambivalent about who I want to be with whom. From the beginning I was team Spencer and but yet found him and Elizabeth to often times be a confusing and frustrating couple. The push and pull between Elizabeth ...more
Romance, two Hot Alpha’s
He was just standing there like a beautiful sculpture. Slowly he turned, leaving from sight, but his image was burned into my mind.
My heart was Torn with this read.

The blurb really intrigued me on this one. I honestly thought it would lean toward the funny side. There were a few funny moments, but overall the mood was more serious.
I really don't enjoy love triangles. They make me nervous and I hate not knowing who will end up with who. It drives me crazy. However, the author managed to get to me a little bit. I couldn't decide who she should pick either! In the end though, I know who I want : ...more
I love that the female lead, Elizabeth, isn't cookie cutter. She is a size 12 and has a lot of insecurities. She is used to being the sidekick and not the lead character. That all changes when she catches the eye of two men.... one being the most eligible bachelor and another being a member of the paparazzi. Can you guess where this is going? I'm disappointed that I guessed exactly what was happening, right ...more
While out at a red carpet event, Elizabeth meets sexy bachelor, Spencer. She also meets Simon, who is a photographer. This story definitely has a love triangles. Elizabeth seems really confused on which guy is best for her. Both Simon and Spe ...more
A new Author to me so was looking forwards to seeing how the story played out.
Elizabeth has insecurities about her weight and appearance as she feels frump un against her 2 very good looking and successful brothers.
So when the good looing eligible bachelor Spencer is interested in her she is unsure.
But not only has she caught the eye of Spencer along comes Simon a photographer who tries to win her heart.
Twists and turns for Elizabeth who stil ...more
Alright...now I know why I LOVE love triangles. Elizabeth, Spencer and Simon just reminded me. I love the fact that you are torn. You have no idea what to do with the feelings you have. I guess I like the drama of it. But only in a book. If this were my life, I would of already locked myself up and a cell and flushed the key down the toilet.
I was swallowed up by Spencer. The creepy-always-showing-up-out-of-nowhere-sexy-as-sin man has gra ...more
The synopsis sounded pretty interesting.. so I gave it a shot.. I enjoyed the book.. Not a top fav but defiantly a good read.. and I would be interested in reading more… I really liked both Spencer and Simon.. Not sure even now who I would choose.. and Elizabeth.. well she was just beautiful… and I was sooo happy that she wasn’t a size 2.. A lot of books you read they say oh she has these curves but yet she is a size 2 .. No Elizabeth was a bigger girl ( ...more
It was a little hard for me to get through this book. The characters were all over the place. The main characters, plus the supporting characters were all wishy washy. As soon as I'm starting to get attached to a character, something happens..then I'm lost again. This book gave me whiplash and the ending wasn't really an ending. I'm sorry I just cannot recommend this book.
