My first love was my brother’s best friend.
A lead singer in their band.
A picture of rugged perfection.
And a drunk soul mate who couldn’t commit.

My second love was an arrogant baseball player.
A player in every sense of the word.
A smooth-talking, reliable best friend.
And a chance at something beautiful and true.

The problem with having a first and second love?

It’s 4.06am. I am done. I just woke my husband crying & got yelled at for reading so late BUT I COULD NOT STOP READING!!!


This is the kind of book that punches you in the chest repeatedly but you like it. A true triangle where I was Team Flip Flop for a lot of the book as these characters grew, made mistakes and loved so fiercely it hurt. And the Epilogue - well I loved that so much I give it all the stars!!!!

SERENADING HEARTBREAK Is a full length romance novel by Ella Fields.

I raged, I swooned, I sighed, I cursed a storm, I even screamed at my iPad why oh why! I even had to walk away a few times just to breathe!! This book right here knew no boundaries!! It threw curveballs, it threw bullets to the heart,

Serenading Heartbreak is a new adult romance featuring a love triangle that will have you ripping your hair out and clutching your heart! The angst alone will drive you to the edge! You'll curse, smile, sigh, laugh, tear up, and possibly even throw your book across the room depending on how crazy the characters make you, so you know, basically the same as you do with every other Ella Fields novel. Lol The woman is the queen of angst, and for an angst whore like myself, she is a godsend!

"I wont be your second choice because some asshole couldn't make you his first."

Where do I begin? I knew that I would either love this book or loathe it. At the end it was the latter. It's not even that the heroine didn't end up with the guy I was rooting for, it was just a messy story overall with a lot of tropes that I hated. If you love any of the following tropes than this book might be for you, but it's everything I usually despite.

HUGE SPOILER WARNING ! You should only continue read

What is about Ella Fields and angst. She excels at it and also at driving me freaking crazy. Gahhhhhhhhhhhhhh. My heart and nerves couldn’t take it. Serenading Heartbreak is just that. Heartbreak and hurt but those emotions only come because you feel. You love. And that’s exactly what Stevie did. She loved so fiercely and so deep. She loved two guys and they loved her back.

This was an ok read for me. Its hard for me to write this review without spoilers because there’s things that bothered me, but I can’t say them without giving away the plot, so please bear with me.

This is a well written story about Stevie and her love for two men. They both came at different times in her life but in the end she needs to pick only one. The guy she ends up with was not my favorite, but I respect Stevie’s choice even though I didn’t agree with it. This book is very ang

“He was a crescendo, an ever-increasing note, and there was no end in sight.”

I’m going to give you some truths right now. Two years ago I stumbled across this book called Cyanide by Ella Fields. I read the blurb and I said to myself, why not take a chance? That was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made because this author has not only given me some of my favorite stories to date, her storytelling is something that you have to experience. It’s been two years since I’ve stumbled upon this aut
I absolutely love this author and her writing style. I have 5 starred a lot of her books... so I was very curious about this one. I am gonna be honest though... I should have skipped it as soon as I realized it was a love triangle. I despise love triangles !!!

My guy never wins in point with this one !!

I really disliked the other guy and I wasn't a big fan of the heroine either. She played them... no question about it. She also used double standards when it came to both men. Forgiving one
I have to come to terms with the fact that the guy I get invested in is the one who is not chosen when it comes to love triangles.
This is a new adult romance novel. Stevie's heart is torn in two pieces. She unconditionally loves her brother's best friend, Everett, who is an aspiring musician and is addicted to alcohol. Despite her unresolved feelings for him, she comes to the realization that when one door closes another one opens. Aiden, a charming guy who wears his heart on his s

This is a love triangle that went back and forth and ended without my choice. Something felt off I think the heroine ... not quite sure. Still, it’s a pretty solid read.

Oftentimes, I find it difficult to review something as evocative as Serenading Heartbreak, noticing myself turn into an awful broken record, using common phrases and reiterating myself from a past review because the narrative rendered me speechless and dumbfounded. I’ve been shredded, left in tatters with a bruised and shattered heart, torn between such distinct characters. I don’t love love triangles—immense detestation for romances that even allude to them isn’t accurate enough to encapsulate

I'm writing this review with a slightly broken heart. I sat for a few minutes with my head in my hands, pondering....thinking....mulling over what I just read, wondering why the heart is a warrior the mind chooses to battle. I went in knowing this was a triangle, and if you've followed me for any amount of time, I've made no secret that this is my favorite kind of story/trope because the pull between two lovers gets

“To fall in love twice was a beautiful rarity. To be in love with two men at the same time was a cruel twist of fate.”

This book is absolutely incredible, and probably one of my favourite love triangle books EVER. Writing my review for this one is proving to be very hard because I just can’t find adequate words to express how much I adored it. If you aren’t scared of all the angst and emotion, and are fully prepared to go for a ride on one heck of an emotional rollercoaster, then you need to pic

Let’s get this out-of-the-way this book is a love triangle book. If those types of books bother you, then skip this book. But if you are brave, know that this story is a YA/NA, emotional, heartbreaking, gut wrenching, hopeful, total wild roller coast ride of angst. While I felt an ache in my heart for most of the read, I was totally invested in the story wanting to know the outcome and if in fact there was going to be a HEA.

Serenading Heartbreak is one hell of an emotional read and I enjoyed every second of it. Ella Fields knows how to write angst, heartbreak, and pure love like no other which is why I am always eager to go back to her stories and live within her characters lives. In this one, readers will be taken on an emotionally turbulent journey of first loves, second loves, and figuring out WHICH one is the forever love. Yes

I love Ella Fields writing style. It is beautiful. Easy to read. Easy to feel.
I definitely enjoyed this one. We are presented with some really young characters which we see evolve, grow and make mistakes. Cause that's what we are best at when we're young, right?

♡ Awwww ♡ I fell in love with all these characters. I fell for the sweet, broken, stubborn, damaged, fighters and romantics.
As I was reading I highlighted so much and I found myself smiling with heart eyes.

I hate myself for reading this book. I hate that I didn’t listen to my brain and yet again, went with what my heart wanted. I’ve told myself countless times “VANESSA YOU’VE ALREADY ESTABLISHED THAT YOU DON’T DO LOVE TRIANGLES! YOU F****ING HATE THEM!” So, if I know that, why did I read this book? Why in the hell would I put myself through this again? I mean, am I a masochist, do I really enjoy pain that much to go through this again? I guess I do, but that’s not the real answer.

Last night I thought “hmm let me just read a chapter or two before bed”
A few hours later….
The sun is shining, a cup of tea in front of me and I am in an absolute book coma.

I feel like my heart is in a standstill. What angst?this book was beyond that!

Serenading Heartbreak was turbulent, almost unhealthy ,young and wild.


I know it’s not everyones cup of tea but I love a love triangle! Ugh…you can imagine the emotions that

I have to say that my enjoyment of this novel decreased the further I got into this story. For a while, I thought this book would be receiving a four star rating but then as time went on, it went to a three star and then settled on 2.5 stars.

What I liked the most was the original development of the relationship and the history behind the two main characters. I love when characters have a history, especially when it goes way back to when they were in school.

However, without spoiling too

Ella did it again. When my heart wasn't in my throat, it was pounding in my chest like a drum. I knew she wasn't going to make this an easy journey, that's not her style, but that's exactly what I love about her writing. Ella likes to push our limits and that's what she did with Serenading Heartbreak. It's no secret this is a love triangle, someone will walk away with a broken heart and will it be the hero you're rooting for?!?!

Needless to say I'm not

unable to speak, especially as the temporary result of shock or some strong emotion.
There are very few love triangle books that leave me satisfied by the end of the book, even when the couple I want to get together does. There is usually something missing or leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Serenading Heartbreak didn’t. It was so much more.

We meet Everett and Stevie as young teens, we feel their connection very early on. It was head first, all in kind of love. One that passionate and rare. One that due certain paths is bound to shatter over time. Is it enough to be pieced back

Is it possible to fall in love with two guys, who are so different and love them both completely?

Stevie has been in love with her brother’s best friend ever since he showed up brooding at her house to see her brother. A forbidden romance, a first love so intense that it can completely shatter your world if it goes wrong. All Stevie wants is to be someone’s first choice, their only choice.

What would you do if you were in love with a man wholeheartedly and then you fell for another?

5 THIS BOOK...STARS!! Ella Fields did her job well.....I can't stop thinking about this book. My teeth hurt from grinding them so hard with all the angst and my heart is so tired it needs to sleep for a week. Stevie, Everett and Aiden's story will pull you through the ringer, but it is so worth the ride. I am so happy I took the ride, but make sure to buckle will jerk you around. I crave Ella Fields words and she did not disappoint, I devoured this book.

This is a love story of impossible choices. How do you choose between two men and you're in love with both of them???!! This book broke my heart into a million tiny pieces.
