Hi there,

Just wanted to let you know that the book will be released on December 10th.

Due to personal reasons this year, the book has been very delayed and I can assure you I'm very sad and disappointed with the delay myself.
I took a big break from all social media and the book world since April and I'm starting to get back into it now.

Another incredible book from Velvet! I am a huge fan of this series and this book did not disappoint! I absolutely loved it!!
You do need to read them in order, especially to understand who all the characters are!
Ashley & Sams story was without doubt amazing, full of relationship ups and downs, incredibly HOT and I also shed a few tears!
This book you will not want to put down. I have missed the whole gang from the first two books and it's really nice to see how things are going for them.

We have had a bit of a wait for this 3rd installment of Velvet Reed's Matters Of The Heart series, but A Home For My Heart is definitely worth the wait!

Sam "Vagina Man" and Ashley have been circling around each other for a while, but finally! At the end of Saving Our Hearts, they got their act together!

A Home For My Heart follows on from the events in Saving Our Hearts, and just like our lovelies, I couldn't keep the smile off my face as I started rea

I absolutely adore this author. She writes truly heartfelt romance novels. The depth of love the characters show for one another is so touching. Her books are what romance is about. Unconditional love is what this book, and all her books for that matter, are about. You could possibly read this as a stand alone but you really shouldn't. There is so much back story to Sam and Ashley that you really need to read the first two books to understand them better. I did enjoy the fact that Sam and Ashley ...more

Seriously, that did not just happen?!?!?

Okay for starters, yay! Grace and Cole you two are amazing! Great wedding by the way it was truly romantic. Now the most gut wrenching and emotional part of this one, Sam and Ashley. Yes you heard it Dr. Sam Evans opens up in this one and it hurts oh god does it hurt! You will laugh, be smiling, but also you will feel dislike and hurt most of all in this one.

Dr. Sam Evans and Ashley Brookes are friends of Grace Rivers and Dr. Cole Tierney. They are the godparents to their son, Cooper. They are undeniably attracted to each other.

Ashley Brookes has been left by everyone that was supposed to stay. Her parents left her and then her grandmother died. The only people that have stuck around are the Rivers family. She is terrified to give her heart to anyone because there is only so much left to give.

Dr. Sam Evans knows heartbreak. His parents died when h

Sam and Ashley have had their fair share of heartbreak so attempting a relationship together was never going to be easy sailing, particularly when Sam had such a hard time expressing himself or even understanding his own heart.

"I've always refrained from displaying how I truly felt, but I'm learning that it's okay to show that I'm vulnerable ... even though I'm a man."

Tough on the outside, Sam has a world of hurt inside. He's never thought he was worthy of the type of love that Ash has to of

Having loved the first two books in this series and waited for this one to be released I was not let down this was a great read that will put you through an emotional rollercoaster.

If you have not read the first two books then I would suggest you do so as you will get a bit lost, as not only do we get Sam and Ashley's story we also get to catch up with the rest of the gang. Velvet wrote this in a way that when Sam found out some shocking truths about his past us as readers could understand how

I've been waiting so long for Sam and Ashley's story. And to my satisfaction it was well worth the wait ! In this installment the spotlight was on the life and courtship of Sam and Ashley and the insecurities that was contributed by their pass hurts.. Again I love the way the author unravels their individual flaws in order to arrive and the happy ending.. Sam and Ashley's carried the equal passion, chemistry, Understanding and tenderness of the previous reads and that I so love about the series ...more

Another amazing book by Violet Reed! This book really pulled at my heart strings for the struggles that both Ashley and Sam went through in their childhoods as well as what happened in their relationship. It really puts you in their shoes.
I loved that this book included other characters points of view! I loved getting a little sneak peek into Charlie and Allison's story! Can't wait to read their book!

This was a much anticipated book! I am a HUGE fan of this series! From book one, I have fallen in love with this group of friends and family. And I have always felt like there was something special between "Vagina Man" Sam and "tough rocker" Ashley. Everybody's dream should be to find a perfect home for their heart. I cannot wait to find out more about the others in this lovely group of people. ...more

I absolutely love this series by Velvet Reed. I’ve just reread the first two books in the series before reading this book. I love Reed’s writing style she makes you instantly fall in love with the characters and feel for them when something bad happens. In this third book in the series we follow the stories of Sam Evans and Ashley Brookes who we meet in earlier books. Sam being the best friend / brother to Cole and Ashley being best friends with Cole’s wife Grace. They look like they are a match ...more

4.5 stars

I rated it 4.5 stars because it was slow for me at first. I was so ready to dive in and see where Sam's and Ashley's relationship was going to go.
Don't get me wrong, I loved seeing their relationship build up. I was ready for action though. Action like with the other 2 books. Maybe some cat fights or something LOL!!

The book picked up after Sam had is little get a way. Saying that because he had to get away, he had to find himself. Dang Sam, I believe

And we have a home run!!!

I was anxious to read Sam and Ashley's story. Sam in so emotionally stunted, I had to know how this was going to go. Little did I know he was going to break my heart with his actions.
The build up between these two has been great. The books starts off a little slow to give us the readers a chance to experience their relationship growing. The catalyst that happens in the rest of the story was a shock I didn't see coming. Absolutely loved this story! I cried reading the "l

It's been a long year! But tonight's the night. Sam has been waiting for this night for over 6 months. No more back and forth with nasty comments. Ashley will be his tonight! But that's not all....we have a wedding to enjoy also! Cole and Grace decide to forgo the fancy wedding and bring their closest friends and family for a vacation wedding. Lots of fun in preparing and issues to work thru. All is good until Sam finds out his adoptive family has been keeping a secret. He is devastated by the t ...more

I was really looking forward to Sam and Ash's book, their story had been building in the background of the previous two books and I wanted to finally see them together and get their HEA.

However, I was a little disappointed. The first 35% of the book seemed like it was a continuation of Cole and Grace's story through the eyes of Sam and Ash. There were very few scenes with only Sam and Ash, and it seemed every time they did something Cole and/or Grace were there to steal the scene.

An intense, emotional and addicting read!

This is Sam and Ashley's story and, boy, was it so good! A journey filled with love, hurt and heartbreak but all the pain was worth it! Let me tell you: the author has a gift for writing and I'm so glad to have this chance to read this books, I have fallen in love with these characters, their family, their values and their love.

I loved getting a glimpse into Charlie's point of view. Cannot wait for his book!

OMG I loved this book. If you are looking for a great ugly cry, this is the book. I did a few times. Velvet brought out the feels in me. Had me crying, smiling and laughing through this book. Even a couple of panty changes required.
I adore Ashley's attitude. We can all related to the heart break she experiences, in some ways, and the way Velvet words it all, has you feeling for her. Not just wish her.
Sam is just a sweet heart that you want to love and kick his arse at the same time.

Cole and Gracie, Sam and Ashley, Charlie and Allison, Tanner what a whirl wind (and the other characters)!!! This series is so family orientated, full of love, hurt and trust.
