Change of Heart is my first book by Jennifer Allen and I look forward to reading more from her!
This is a stand alone book but the story does leave just enough mystery of some characters to want another book set in this world.
Get your tissue ready because oh yes there will be tears.

Casey is the typical book nerd, and Decker is not. He is the complete opposite. Ever since that fateful day when Decker showed up insisting they would be best friends Casey and he were inseparable. Even after all their years together, Casey feels she cant possibly break his heart and tell him shes leaving for college. In this lies my only issue with this story.I find it hard to believe that after all those years ...more
You know you have a great book to look forward to when it starts out with a flashback fifteen years ago when a little boy moves in across the street from a little girl and he informs her that they are going to be best friends and she replies with “No way! Boys are gross!” because the little 6 year old girl believed “boys were mean, dirty, and disgusting.”
Casey Evans puts up with a lot in school, first because she has her AP ...more

5 Stars Review
Change of Heart by Jennifer L. Allen is the first book in her Second Chances series and it’s simply beautiful! It’s a story about two people who are polar opposites defying the odds with a life long friendship. I absolutely loved this romance read but it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, I definitely read it with tears in my eyes for a good portion. Decker and Casey have an inspirational love story, one that I won’t forget.
“My home is wherever you ...more
Casey Evans and Decker Abrams have been best friends since the ripe age of six. When Casey moved into Decker’s neighborhood he told her instantly that they would be best friends and they never looked back. All through highschool Casey and Decker kept to their word as best friends, but they couldn’t be less alike if they tried. Decker was the all-American hunky boy with lots of friends and Casey was the “plain Jane” who was ...more
This is the first book I’ve read by Jennifer L. Allen and I enjoyed it very much.
The story of Casey and Decker began a long long time ago when they met as 6 year olds. Their friendship continues down a somewhat traditional path of best friends when suddenly it changes. Some decisions are made hastily while others were well thought out and planned. After spending all their formative years together, Casey and Decker ...more
AUTHOR: JENNIFER L. ALLEN
CHANGE OF HEART is the first book in the Second Chances series by Jennifer L. Allen. It can be read as a stand alone, but it is suggested that you read them in order for your full enjoyment. This is the first book I have read by Jennifer, but it definitely will not be my last. I enjoyed this book so much and can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the series. This is one of those books that once you start you can't put down. ...more
I was hooked while reading the dedication page~I can't say that's ever happened before. It had me cracking up! I knew I was going to love Jennifer's sense of humor and sense of loyalty/family. This book had me smiling, laughing, frustrated, hopeful, heartbroken and tugged so hard on my heart. Grab your tissues...if you're like me you'll need them. A few times while reading I had to stop and take a breath unsure of how Jennifer would take the ...more
Change of Heart starts with Casey Evan and Decker Adams who were best friends growing up after they became neighbors. You can tell that Casey and Decker have a special relationship, that seems to go beyond friendship. Casey started to struggle with something, but ...more
I knew something was up with Casey most of the way through the book, but I wasn't expecting what it was or the implications it would have on Decker ...more
The more I read of Decker, the more enamored I became with him. What a total hottie sweetheart.
When the details of Casey's secret were revealed, it was all I could do to not start crying. (And it takes a LOT for a book to make me cry.) The love, hope, and fear pouring from the pages had my complete attention. I couldn't put the book down from that point on ...more
Jennifer is an amazing storyteller. She does an excellent job of building characters that you manage to fall in love with while they retain plenty of mystery and intrigue, along with secrets they are keeping from each other, as well as from you as a reader. Her knack for keeping the reader on ...more
Jennifer Allen has set the bar very high with Change of Heart. I was completely captivated by Casey and Decker’s second chance story. Within minutes of opening up the first chapter I was hooked.
In typical fashion, I have a hard time resisting a best friends to lover romance. Something about those always get me. So I knew, just by going off the synopsis that I was going to like this story. However, what I didn’t expect was to be on pins and needles waiting to see ...more
What an adorable prologue! Decker moves into his new house at a young age; he looks out the window to see a young girl playing outside and asks his mom, "momma, is that an angel?" Beginning of senior year and they are best friends even though Casey was adamant when she was six and met him they wouldn't be. Even though Casey and Decker are the best of friends throughout school Casey is constantly talked about because she is the "nerd & smart" girl and Decker ...more
Well what can I say. I loved this book from start to finish, they way Jennifer has written this sucks you in and you can't put it down.
Anna and Ryan's story is one that a number of people will be able to relate too.
Anna had the world at her feet the perfect boyfriend and her dream of going to art school. That all change one frightful day.
Ryan new where his live was headed and Anna was a big part of it he was joining the Navy after his senior year but thanks to that frightful ...more
Once I read the blurb I was hooked, I am huge fan of friends since they are were kids and watch it develop into more!! Casey and Decker immediately stole my heart and what a ride they took it it on. It was a story filled with so much, an unbelievable ...more
This story follows two young kids Casey and Decker, becoming best friends at the age of 6 who remain in each other's lives until college. But that's just the lining of this beautiful story. Casey and Decker have all their firsts with each other, but nothing would set them up for the challenges and trials they are going to have and probably not together. Could love
I absolutely fell in love with this story from page one. It started out so sweet, and ended 1,000 times sweeter. Decker knew at first sight that he and Casey would be best friends, forever.
I'm a total sucker for a sweet guy, and Decker is one of the sweetest guys around. Ever since the day he met Casey he took care of her, made sure she was protected. Maybe he made some stupid ...more
