Yep, just as I anticipated. Unfortunately one more author wasting the opportunity to be original. Just another handbook explaining to young people how to be fickle, weak, selfish and pathetic. I hope the young people reading this crap don't take it as an example.

Oh! Oh! He treats me like shit so I'm so broken I can't be happy anymoooooore! But he is so beautiful and unforgettable because he has done nothing but being stupid and treat me like a piece of trash, yet he makes me so

5 HEARTS AND FLOWERS STARS!! I love Darrian and Nora!! This book picks up where Hearts and Bruises ends. There story was all over the place with feels, drama, suspense and love. These two are so perfect for each other you feel it in your heart. A.M. Brooks has won me over with her storytelling and I can't wait for the next book. You definitely need to 1-Click these two book. ...more

Hmm... I don't know what to say. I'm not sure if I liked it not. Everything felt so dramatic and OVER THE TOP!!

No-one can say that I didn't complete the dang book because I did. I don't like to DNF a book unless it's horrifically bad.
I read it book and I didn't like.
In Hearts and Flowers, both Nora and Darrian mature and grown up....thankfully. Even though I don't think I could personally ever forgive my significant other if they did the things to me that Darrian did to Nora, I'm glad that they are able to work through it all. I'm equally glad that she makes him work for her forgiveness. She let him get away with a few too many things in the first book and then she'd forgive him way too easily.

Darrian had to work through his own demons before he could trul

I love second chance romances and this one definitely hit the spot. We left off with Darrian King destroying Nora’s heart. This book we find out the truth about everything. We see a whole new side to Darrian which I love! Nora is in danger and the last people she wants to help her are there. This isn’t all romance it’s about trust and forgiving and getting the help you need to change your life around. I loved every page and intense moment in this duet. I wish we could have all the other characte ...more

I have mixed feelings about this book. First off, I did not realize this was the second book in a series until I was over halfway through it. I couldn't figure out why the author started the story where she did. *Facepalm*

With that in mind, I need to give Brooks props. I was able to understand and enjoy this book without reading the first one, which features the same couple. I find that extremely impressive. It is not easy for an author to write a sequel in a way that the reader will understand

I couldn’t have asked for a better ending to Darrian and Nora’s story! It was amazing to see how much Darrian’s character grew in this book.

He was hot and cold with Nora in Hearts and Bruises, but in this book, after going to rehab, he fully opens his eyes to what he’s done and he’s ready to fight to get back into Nora’s life, no matter what it takes. You can literally just feel the love he has for Nora oozing off the pages and several times I cried happy tears because I was just so gosh darn ov

I was given the opportunity to beta read this book. Honestly, because I am not familiar with the authors work I was not sure what to expect. I was absolutely blown away by her writing style and fantastic content of this book. While young adult is not what I typically go towards it was such a refreshing change of pace. Despite not having read the first book I spent the entire time completely aware of what was going on and never felt like I was missing anything. I really can’t recommend this book ...more

LABookLove Rating | 3.5 palm trees

ARC kindly provided in exchange of an honest review.

Review | Hearts and Flowers is the second book in the Hearts series by A.M. Brooks and is the conclusion to Nora and Darrian’s story that unfolded in book one, Hearts and Bruises. It’s a second chance romance written in dual prospective. H&F focused on Darrian’s attempts to win Nora back after completely demolishing their relationship at the end of book one

AM Brooks left us with so many questions after the first book. She broke me and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to forgive Darrian’s actions in Hearts and Bruises.

Darrian and Nora were toxic together but somehow had a connection that worked. Once that toxicity was cleared up they became perfect together.

There was plenty of suspense, angst and love throughout the book. I kept picturing myself at their age to see how I would have reacted to all that was happening. Nora and Darrian were far from perfect
Sissy's Romance Book Review
HEARTS & FLOWERS, A. M. BROOKS is book 2 in the Hearts Series. This continues the story of Darrian and Nora, so you really should read the previous book 'Hearts and Bruises' first.
Darrian had issues in the last book that made him make very bad decisions and acted in a way that truly hurt Nora. But in this book he comes back to a goal to get Nora back, pay for his mistakes and do all he can to protect Nora. Nora felt that should could fix anything and that did lead to her being more open to Darr

This book is the conclusion to Hearts and Bruises. I love this series so much. I read this book in one sitting. I was so captivated by this story and these characters. Nora and Darrian have so much bad between them in just the year The have known one another. Love, hate, drugs, bullies and so much more. This is one series that will absolutely be staying with me for a long time. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERIES!

This is the continuation of Hearts and Bruises. Hearts and Flowers is not a standalone. This 4 star story had me reading it in one sitting.

Nora and Darrian story continues. Will they get the HEA they deserve?

This was an highly entertaining story that was full of drama. It was never dull. I read it in one sitting because I had to see how it would end. I would safely say it was addicting. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star was purely subjective. This was a storyline made for YA. I persona

I absolutely love second chance stories because whoever messes up has a chance to redeem themselves and Darrian definitely redeemed himself in Hearts and Flowers.

I get it, Darrian was a major jerk to Nora in the first book BUT he thought he had a reason to hate her and in the process of hating her, he fell in love with her and when he found out the truth, it was too late for him to go back and explain to Nora why he did what he did because Nora had left and wasn't planning on coming back.

This is the conclusion to the first book Hearts and Bruises. I’m a sucker for second chance romances.

I was able to read this book in one sitting because I wanted to know what was going to happen considering what happened in the last one. Darrian I didn’t like in the first one, in this one he grew up a lot an I loved reading his growth. Rehab helped him a lot, I was hoping he would change and he did for the better.

The back and forth that happened with Darrian and Nora I think was necessary becaus

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 STARS

Love is never easy and this second chance romance proves just how tough it can be.

Hearts and Flowers is book two in the Hearts Series by A.M. Brooks. This story begins where the first book left us with Darrian absolutely breaking Nora with his actions. I was gutted for Nora after Hearts and Bruises ended, so going into this book I needed to find out what happened. I felt Darrian was able to redeem himself and protect Nora at the same time from the danger she unknowingly was in.

I voluntarily received a copy of this for an honest review!

I have to say after getting the first book in this series I was quite excited to get the next one too. Darrin and Nora’s story picks up right where it left off. You don’t feel like you’ve missed anything. There is many other little couples and tales going on in this book. But it doesn’t take away from anything, in fact it adds to the exhilarating and suspense filled drama that rotates around these two lovers/enemies.

I really like how Nora takes her time to forgive and get back together with Darrian, tho I'm not rooting for them to end up with each other, cheating is unacceptable mistake, yes we weren't perfect, but IRL, if your partner cheated on you there's always a chance that he/she will do it again, as the old adage says "Once a cheater, always a cheater." Nevertheless I like how the author did not rush everything especially on Nora's side, its building slowly. And I'm glad that Darr change for the bett ...more

Hearts & Flowers is book two in the Hearts Series by new author A.M Brooks. Told in dual POV we continue with the conclusion of Nora Sutton & Darrian King’s story. H&F is a two-part story so Hearts and Bruises MUST be read first. This review may contain spoilers from Hearts and Bruises if you have not read book one yet, proceed with caution.

AM Brooks has redeemed herself!

I totally had forgotten I'd read the first book, Hearts and Bruises, so when I got started on Hearts and Flowers, I realized how familiar the characters were. Then, I remembered the storyline, Brooks's writing style that I loved, and the cliffhanger from hell...yes, THAT cliffhanger!

Nora and Darrian's story goes much deeper in book two, and where I'd been on the fence with them in the first book, this time I saw them in a different way. The drama was still at an a

Wow!! Seriously I loved this book!! The first one was good but the second one was awesome!! We have Darrian after the accident. Getting sober. Nora coming back from the summer away from all the gossip and the hate that happened before.
It was super well written. The characters were amazing too. The continuation of the story was awesome. It jumped right back into when Darrian had the accident. I was ready to kill Darrian in the last book because of what he did to Nora and her family. I was ready

I was super excited to read this book once I finished book one. I wanted to see how Darrian and Nora conclusion turned out. The character development was really good in the story compared to book one, Darrian was such a better character, even though he isn’t my favorite. He learned how to work on himself and become better for the one who loves him most. Even though books like this are more realistic than others, I’m still not a complete fan. There’s just too many books out there that have this r ...more

When I first read Hearts and Bruises I didn't know that it was a series and when I finished the book and saw that a second installment was coming out in Aigust I was so happy ! I absolutely adored the first in the series and even more the second ! I sont really want to say anything about the plot because I don't want to spoil anyone but it's awesome!

“Honestly I fell in love with Darrian and Nora love story. Hearts and Flowers is book two in the Hearts series, you definitely need to read book one cause this one starts right where Heart and Bruises end. Drama, suspense and lots of love. Their were a match made in heaven, their connection and chemistry made me remember how butterflies feel like. A.M wrote an outstanding second chance romance. This story is a must read!”

Loved Book 1 but Book 2 didn’t work for me. It got away from the hard angst and moved into the illegal things going on.
