Their disastrous split was no different. Tobin's spent the last year pretending Delia never existed, and Delia's been in D.C., pretending to be anything but the country girl that she is.

This book was really different for me.
We set it in small-town Louisiana, which was SO much fun, and I also love to work with other authors - especially ones with the mad-talent of Stephanie Campbell.

I wrote Delia's POV, and love her to pieces. I also wrote quite a few poems for this book, which was fun. I got my start writing poetry and songs, so it was great to go back to that.

This is a story of for-real true love. Hope you like :-D

"Though nothing can bring back the hour,
Of splendor in the grass,
Of glory in the flower,
We will grieve not, rather find
Strength in what reminds behind."

This humane, tender, poetic and moving book reminded me of these lines by William Wordsworth. It's a different kind of storytelling, in a way, since almost every event of significance has already happened when our story begins. This is about what happens after. Tobin and Delia, from the Montagues and Capulets of Crawford, Louisiana, have already

What an amazing story! I mean, OMG! Let me tell you that I hadn't even begun the book and the excitement of reading it was just flowing through me.

What I loved most about this book is the awesome plot line. Normally, I don't like point of view switches especially if they are not done well. The way both authors wrote each point of view it flowed so well together like peanut butter and jelly. It is so smooth, you aren't lost. You don't loose information either. Instead, with each switch, the reade

Before I get started, let's take a moment to admire the kick ass cover and title of this book. No really, take a moment...

Now let's discuss the inside of the book; it was so incredibly close to four stars. So close you can see that extra star hanging on the edge for dear life. Most of you readers will pull that little guy up (may even pull up his friend). In the end I didn't, but I for sure didn't flick him off either!

This book has gently wrapped me up in its warmth. It felt like a lazy summer drive through a small southern town. There are so many good books waiting to be read, and even great ones. But anytime I find myself immersed in a great one, I simply marvel and literally want to dance from the simple joy of having discovered yet another gem. That's what this books is to me, a little gem. Some books come on fast and furious. Others dark and stormy. But this one? This one was gentle almost like faint whi ...more

Delia is coming back home to Louisiana from D.C. for the first time in a year. The first time she will see Tobin again will be at the funeral for his brother, Eamon. Through alternating POVs and flashbacks we see how Delia and Tobin fell in love, and how it all fell apart. Each author wrote a different POV and I was really amazed how well they meshed together. Also sometimes I really hate flashbacks because I get confused but the writing flowed perfectly. I loved seeing how they met and fell in ...more

"Every piece of the mess that I am makes me smile." - Taken from My Heart for Yours

Tobin and Delia dated each other in high school. They came from different worlds, but they were the perfect match. They were extremely happy together. They were very much in love.

But along the way, Tobin and Delia fell apart.

After a year apart, Tobin and Delia are brought back into each other's lives. Can they find their way back in

I loved this bok so much I have started reading it again a day after I first finished it!

This is the first work I've read from either Jolene Perry or Stephanie Campbell. I loved both of their styles of writing a lot so I will definitely read more of their work soon.

Tobin and Delia used to date but all that ended disastrously when Delia moved away with her family. Now she's back in her home town after a tragedy has happened there. They've not seen each other in a year and have been trying to move

My heart or yours... What a great story about loss, first loves, true love and second chances.

There once was a girl with two faces.

Two hearts

Two lives

But the more she lived in the pretend life

The more it became her real one

And the less she thought about her real life

The more it became her pretend one.


Delia and Tobin get involved in a deep, emotional and intense relationship. Her father, a U.S. Senator who disapproves of their relationship, decides to move the family to Washington D.C. in the hopes of breaking them up. Delia and Tobin are determined to stay together no matter what, but

My Heart for Yours is definitely one of those books you have to read when you are in the mood for something a little deeper than the typical boy meets girl, they fall in love, have some difficulty and then end up happily ever after type books. It dealt with death, difficult parents, and everlasting love.

My last two reviews were on books that started fast but then let me down as I continued to read. This book, like them, went right into the story line but did not let me down! It pulled on my hear

I picked this book up because I needed a light read, something fun. Well, this was not light but it was a good book. The story is about Tobin, the younger brother of Eamon, who is preparing for Eamon's funeral. The story flashes back and forward so you can keep in the story of a brother's love and the loss of a true love. While at Eamon's funeral, Tobin is greeted by Delia, the daughter of the Senator and his one true love. Tobin and Delia have been broken up for over a year and due to the death ...more

Definitely one of my new favorites. I looved this book!!! This is the first time I've really judged a book by its cover and luckily I was right. I've been waiting for this book to be released since I saw the title, which describes this book perfectly.

I REALLY enjoyed this short read, but don't let the length fool you....the emotion runs deep! The characters were very likable and the plot was realistic. I actually recall witnessing a similar situation unravel between a group of friends when i was in college. While reading, you feel the love, loss, heartache, betrayal, pressure, persistence, drama, and the undeniable bond between the characters.

“Always a trade. Always a compromise. Until there wasn't anything left to bargain with, because neither of us had any clue what to do.”

Tobin and Delia's relationship was always a trade. A shirt for a shirt, a kiss for a kiss, a heart for a heart. All that changed when Delia's family moved away a year ago. But when Tobin's brother dies, Delia's family comes back to town for the funeral. When Tobin and Delia's lives cross paths again the old feelings of anger, betrayal, and love that have smolde

My Heart for Yours was a book I had wanted to read for a while, and when my best friend bought me this book for my birthday, I was over the moon. Nearly two months later, I finally got the chance to read it and overall, I thought it was a sweet and emotional story – one that I’m glad I read.

Warning: this review contains spoilers!

This book was sweet but incredibly sad and depressing. While I liked it I didn't feel any real pull towards it. It was more of just a sad story with romance mixed in. I'm not sure why but it reminded me a little of The Notebook.

Delia has an unbelievably controlling father. Due to his career they are forced to go to DC from Louisiana for an extended period of time. Delia is leaving behind her boyfriend, Tobin. Things between them aren't going too great, and

Tobin and Delia's have quite a few relational problems. Their break up involves miscommunication, inferiority complexes, and a damn misunderstanding. Their story is told in choppy flashbacks. It was really annoying.

Delia left her little country town and became a city girl. Now she's all makeup and Gucci and she's at home with that. But being back in her old hometown makes her question who she's become. She's about to break. Her dad is a strict U.S. Senator so her life revolves around a clean-cu

Tobin and Delia are one of those couples that when you breathe their names, people just know.

This book gave me goose bumps from the first chapter. Tobin is so unbelievably broken and you want him seeing Delia to make it all better. But it doesn't. It can't. Usually I don't like flashbacks. I want the here and now. But Stephanie and Jolene made it so you craved the flashbacks. The now was almost too painful. You needed Tobin and Delia when they were madley in love.

Before I decided to hand "My Heart for Yours" 2 stars, I was giving a lot of thought since the story was pretty good. However I didn't like how I felt when I read it. I felt gloomy which (in my opinion) was the main purpose of this book but for me, it seemed too much. The narrators were mature enough. But I still had one huge problem toward “My Heart for Yours” ... it was lack of dialogues. The characters rarely spoke to each other and that the kind of thing that made me think this book was too ...more

Just when I think Jolene Perry can't get any better, she teams up with Stephanie Campbell to create a story that kept me awake all night because I couldn't put it down!

There are so many things to like about this book, but what I loved the most was the way the story kept unfolding. From the beginning, you think you know all there is to know about Delia and Tobin, but every chapter revealed a little more, another snippet of their past to better explain their present.

Gosh what a heartfelt emotional ride of young forever love. I am so glad my sister in law recommended I read this book. The love between Delia and Tobin just goes to show you that love no matter the circumstances might just be all that you need in the end. I kinda had this story pegged and there wasn't any twists and turns that shocked me, it was a very emotional straight forward read and I loved the relaxed ease of the read. I highly recommend this book for anyone who needs a good refresher on ...more

Good book. So happy Delia is starting to stand up for herself. So sad about Eamon. I really liked Tobin. The reasons they broke up a year ago were sad and it's too bad they couldn't be there for each other. I think Delia's dad was just too much for both of them. Maybe life was too much for them at that point. So glad it ended like it did, and I just realized there is a sequel I will have to look into.

Meant to be... Destiny... Forever love... That's what this book brought to me. Tradgety for truth and triumph. A story about young love that faces overwhelming odds to come back to what it means to love forever.
I shed tears durning this one.. A few times! Well written and loved the outlook of past vs present and wasnt confusing at all! Looking forward to another book team up, You both write so well together!

I have no words for how much I enjoyed this book. Not most books are able to make me cry but this was one of those heartbreaking tear bringing books that I had to breath calmly for because i had to see what happened next. I loved this book so much I might even read it a few more times which is another rare thing I do also but this book, this heartfelt book has open new doors and i intend to walk through them all.
