The secrets just keep coming.

It’s summer in Shaver and, frankly, Dahlia Kennedy is bored. Even though she and Eva are throwing a party for David and she gets to visit Rowan in Ambrosia easier on account of summer hours, it seems like senior year is never going to come. Worse yet, it’s looking like the one thing she’s planned on doing for forever isn’t going to happen.

Review

‘Open Thy Heart’ was a great sequel in the ‘Flora’ series that really built on the tension, drama and mystery that we see in novel one, ‘If I Speak True’. The characters were awesome, funny and generally superb (excluding the evil villains). And let us not forget the ending! Because the ending was just………………beautiful. *cries tears of regret at ending the book*
What really appealed to be and something that I n

I received copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Admittedly, I already am a big fan of this series, so yes I love this book. Every new release in this Flora collection keeps getting better, with new revelations and exciting developments abound. It's got everything you could want in a book with magical realism - pretty covers (not essential but it definitely helps), well rounded characters, fascinating storyline and

First, can we just talk about the covers for this series? Like seriously, they are so amazing. Anyway, Open Thy Heart was a great continuation, with just as much intrigue, interest, and uniqueness as in the first book.

I still had some of the same problems with Dahlia that I had in the first book, as she was slightly annoying and I found myself unable to relate to her or, well, really like her that much. She was so narrow-focused, seeing things only through her perspective and yelling at everyone

I didn't get to read book 1(which I am going go back and read though) because I was only given book 2 for Open Thy Heart Blog Tour,but Dahlia gives enough recap info that I didn't feel like I was missing much.Though she does have moments of flash back or speak about those memories,I do want to go back and read about hoe Dahlia and Rowan met and their encounters during those first few month so I can experience them falling in love.
Falling in love with a Prince is every girl's dream but rarely a r

*I received a copy of this book from the author and Inkslinger PR in exchange for an honest review.

Open Thy Heart was a delightful read! I don't think I liked it quite as much as If I Speak True, but it still felt like a great book.

Just like in book one, I loved Dahlia's POV. It was fun, fresh, and real. She was a great character with a personality that I really enjoyed. Actually, I really liked most of the characters' personalities. They were easy to sense and just seemed to shine throughout th

I hadn't read the first book when I signed up for this book. I didn't even know this was the sequel. :/

Original Posting on Gaga Over Books:

Anyway, all the way through reading this book I wanted to read the first book. I think I will be doing that as I really enjoyed this one.

This book made sense even without reading the first as our memory was refreshed in the amusing voice of our protagonist Dahlia. I soo enjoyed reading from her perspective.

Are you in the mood for a supernatural type Romeo and Juliet story ? Ever since Dahlia could remember for her birthday , a dahlia always appears on her doorstep and then in the last few years , she managed to somehow wake up in a world she thought was a dream called Ambrosia. In Ambrosia, she fell in love with Rowan who is the heir to the throne and somehow her family is connected to this place called Ambrosia, but it's not like she can ask anyone as her dad died three years ago and Helen - who ...more

This was a great sequel! This is the kind of book I can dive into and live as though it were my own daydream...if that makes any sense. A full review will come soon & be posted to my blog.
