Changing Hearts (Chasing Butterflies #3)
But there’s so much more beyond the jokes and the sexual innuendos; behind the mask he so carefully wears. It’s in the way he takes care of others, including me. It’s in the glimpses of the pain he carries in his soul.
I see him for w ...more
How could I not love this book? First, it's part of the Chasing Butterflies series, which I adore. This is a stand alone so you don't need to read the other 2 books so feel free to grab this one. (Once you do though, you'll want to go back and get the other two--just sayin.) PLUS, it has everything I love in a great story ... the perfect amount of tension, characters you love but sometimes want to thrash, and a plot with the right amount of twists that keep you guessing. Oh and ...more
~ 2.5 Stars ~
So let me start by saying that I liked Changing Hearts by Terri E Laine, but it definitely isn’t my favorite book by this author. I was both excited and nervous to read this book. I loved the first two books in this series….Chasing Butterflies and Catching Fireflies so I was hoping this book was going to be just as good. I was also nervous from reading the blurb and I should’ve listened to my gut when deci ...more
This is the 3rd book in the "Chasing Butterflies" series, and while each subsequent book builds on the characters and relationships in the ones before, each can be enjoyed as a standalone too.
I anxiously awaited the next installment in this storyline. It feels like you're coming home to characters you already love and are invested in, and then you get to peek inside even more and peel back the layers. It's a reading snowball that I'm happy to be part of and Terr ...more
First, I'm a fan of this series and I was so looking forward to this book because I wanted to know more about Sawyer and Ashton BUT I didn't expect Shelly to be the heroine and I'm sorry I wish it wasn't her. I just couldn't get into her especially after seeing how she was in the first two books. And even in this book she still wasn't completely real. She did have issues which I felt sorry for her from time to time but I ...more
After reading Catching Fireflies I was very intrigued by Sawyer and Ashton. I wanted to know more about them and how their story would play out. Adding Shelly into the mix made things all the more interesting for me. Shelly for me however was a character I loved to hate. In my eyes ...more
I was weirded out by Sawyer/Shelly/Ash's dynamic. I know it's a "normal" thing these days, but I've never read a book with Changing Hearts' crazy plot twists. I was emotional. I went from happy to sad in about 3 seconds flat. I felt like I was in an emotional Nascar race. I loved the first 2 books in the series, however Changing Hearts was not my cup of tea. She really took me out of my comfort zone and into the twilight zone. I usually love college romance books. I just couldn't get onboard wit...more
Sawyer, Ashton and Shelly are the focus of this love story. Sawyer and Shelley spent a night together their freshman year of college, but Shelly is quick to dismiss Sawyer and asks that he doesn't contact her again. Fast forward a few years in college and their paths cross again. The two engage in a very funn ...more
I've been so anxious to read this book! I one clicked as soon as it went live and didn't put it down until I reached the end.
This book is about Sawyer, Ashton and Shelly. I couldn't wait to dive in and see how it would all play out. I had so many questions I needed answered.
I have to say I'm totally in love with Sawyer's character. He was beautifully haunted by his past. He was a protector and his loyalty was limitless. Sawyer truly has a heart of gold and cares deeply for ...more
Ms Laine shows us a side of these characters that is not always pretty but explains more about who Sawyer, Ashton and Shelly are but at the end of the day this is Sawyer and Shelly's romance and story, with hints of what Ashton is ...more
Sawyer had me laughing at every turn. He's a cocky, arrogant hottie who has a heart of gold. He gives off an attitude like he doesn’t care and is only interested in hooking up and partying but deep down he’s the kind of guy who is always protec ...more
We knew that this was gonna be a messed up situation to some extent with how each of these characters were portrayed in the previous ...more
I think I liked the triangle (is it a triangle, or isn't it?) between the three of them more than I liked Sawyer and Shelly together.
Laine does a great job, however, with the development of the two guys, and filling in their backstor ...more
The book has got it all. It is breathtaking and it caught me from page one. You get through a lot of emotions just reading it. Laughs, dark thoughts, tears - you feel you are a part of the story because it is so well written. I was blown away!
There is so much chemistry between the two main characters - Shelly and Sawyer. They have a relationship where they can have fun and still help each other. They have both issues to deal with. But I ...more
Wow!!!! Terri E. Laine is such an amazing author that will capture your attention and keep you trapped from the first word on the page to the last word on the last page.
Just like all the other books in the series, Changing Hearts is no different. Sawyer and Shelly's story is simply amazing and t ...more
Full Review to Come!
Sawyer is finally here! I have waited for Sawyer and Ashton to tell their story, they have always been that mysterious pair in The Chasing Butterflies Series.
We finally have Sawyer’s side of the story. However, love and life aren’t always a shade of black or white sometimes they are just a brilliant shade of gray – This is one of those times!
This book is one that I was patiently awaiting. I needed to see what happened with Sawyer and I got some answers.
I was impressed with the book and everything Sawyer. I wanted so much more of Ashton though. I will admit the heroine did throw me off, I wasn't sure about her but... I think the story worked well with her. I totally go into the story line and fell hard for the sexy cocky hunk. As a huge fan of the series I ate it up like it was the best thing since sliced bread. ...more
I was anxiously waiting for this book for all the mystery around him and Ashton.
Sawyer is carrying some guilt on his shoulders that he shouldn't be. There's a lot happening in his life and now we can see why he acts like he does.
Shelly is this sweet girl, with a lot of problems too, with a sassy mouth that drives Sawyer crazy of lust.
saying that this is another must read from Terri. you want that haters to lovers or second chance romance you get both in this one book. yes it will make you want to yell open your eyes and see whats there. yes your going to sigh as you face palm your self as you can see the obvious in front of you and they can. but when ...more
I have found a new go to author!! This story is about Shelly and Sawyer with a little Ashton on the side. Shelly and Sawyer have a love hate relationship, Sawyer loved to tease Shelly and she loves to gives it right back to him. Ashton and Sawyer are best friends and Sawyer is the only person who can help Ash battle his demons. When Sawyer finally tells Shelly how he feels about her she tells him he needs to talk to Ash about his feelings. When this happens who will Sawyer c ...more
Once again Terri E Laine has written a poignant and heart warming story. I love the world she has created in this series and the unforgettable characters! Changing Hearts was a story that touches on every emotion and pulls on your heartstrings! I loved Sawyer and seeing how much he changed in this book. He was such a great friend and an all around good guy! As the story progressed we see a lot if familiar characters and I loved seeing how their l ...more
This books can be read as a standalone, but I also suggest reading the other two books first. This book is hot, and different from the other two books. You still get the romance with twists that you may not have seen coming. Your get more info on both Sawyer and Ashton, but I am still left with unanswered questions and I HOOOOPPPE there is a book 4!! Nothing has been announced yet but fingers crossed.
I did find it to drag on a little bit on the back and forth between Ash, Sawyer and Shelly. Don't get me wrong. I loved the book and the characters, some parts just felt draggy to me.
I do want to know more on Ashton thought. I think his story would be interesting.
Many years later, she got a crazy idea to write a novel and set out to try to publish it. With over a dozen titles published under various pen names, the rest ...more
