I am soooo glad I double backed and read this one on my TBR list. It truly touched my heart.

This is the beautiful story of Logan and Charlotte. Charlotte is stuck in a dead end and stressful job. She works for her father’s investment company and she detests it. The only solace she gets is in her wait for the subway when a beautiful man is busking in the station. His voice soothes her and the words he sings relaxes her. She sits and soaks in his music and imagines he is sin

Heart Strings is a stand alone romance by Melanie Moreland. This is the story of a woman so alone, barely getting through the day and a man, a stranger, who saw her, who knew he had to help her.

Charlotte (Lottie) Prescott is twenty six years old and works for her father at Prescott, Inc., which is an investment company. Lottie is barely getting through her days. She works long hours at a job she hates, for a father she will never please. The weight of it all is becoming too much to bear. Somehow

I knew right then, I was in love with Montgomery Logan. Every single side of him, I adored. And I wanted to keep him.

Liz Booker [Liz's Luscious Reads]
Phenomenal is the best word to describe this author and her work. This book was everything. It spoke to me on so many levels. I felt every feeling while I was reading this. The last 20% I struggled to finish because my emotions were so high. I had to put the book aside to get ahold of myself. And that's totally personal, because I could relate so much to the storyline.
This is a simple story of two simple people falling in love. They felt something for one another before they even officially met.

How can I convey in words how much this book touched my heart?

“Heart Strings” is an epic love story and had me in tears before I even finished the first chapter.

Lottie and Logan are magical.

Their connection the most beautiful one I have read in a very long time, perhaps, ever. There is something so brutally honest about them. They are both broken in different ways and find comfort and strength in the other person, before even knowing them. Again - magical.

First, a word of advice – don’t put your eye makeup on when you’re going to read this book. And a note to the publisher, this book should come with a little package of tissues. It is no secret that I am a big fan of Melanie Moreland’s writing. Well, Heart Strings is one of her very best. It contains laughter, smiles, sad tears, happy tears, loss, friendship, anxiety, stress, food, snow, love and romance. Oh, and enough passion to set off your smoke detector.

'Heart Strings' is just a beautiful, beautiful love story! if you believe in God you would believe that he picked Logan for Lottie from the moment they were born. Two people from different up bringing - hers of money he having to practically bring himself up along. But both seeking love and affection.

Just sit back and enjoy and believe that this book is worth the 5* I have given it! A romance book for the true romance believers amongst us!

I am not exaggerating one bit when I say that Heart Strings resonated deep in my soul. This beautiful love story has so many layers; it’s page after page of life, loss, forgiveness, friendship, family, and finding the one who makes your heart sing.

As soon as I finish a book, I generally start another, but not this time. I am going to let Heart Strings live in me a little while longer. This book is a gift that needs to be shared. It’s the tale of how two people meet by chance (my favorite), and a

I loved Logan and Lottie when we met them in What The Heart Wants anthology.
I loved reading 'what happens next' in the Bedtime Stories on Book+Main. 🔥

I had no idea how their story would be more.

Never doubt the power of the storyteller to give you an unexpected story that will touch your heart and deliver a wonderful HEA.

It seems as readers we are attracted to one 'type' in our heroes. I will admit I tend to follow that stereotype. I love a possessive, protective alpha type. However, what if th

I just read this book in one night!

Logan and Lottie's story are one of the most romantic, delicate that I have read in the recent months.

You will be reading it like a soft guitar playing because the words follow a rhythm that it looks like a melody.

Their story is beautiful and with lots of sexy scenes, but in the end their love is so strong and romantic.

They meet by chance in the subway in a moment that Lottie is facing a lot of hurt and doubts in her life. Logan senses her troubles and decides

Once you start reading Heart Strings you will instantly fall in love with it. I am not sure that my words are enough for how great this novel is. Logan and Charlotte are a match made in heaven. Their meeting by chance, but Logan is just what Charlotte needs. He will turns her world upside down, and they find a earth shattering love one that everyone dreams of.

Melanie Moreland has done it again, and if I could give 10 stars I would.

Melanie Moreland has taken my breath away with this story.
I started this book at 2am Sunday morning and finished at 1:30am Monday morning.

The loneliness that comes from unresolved grief and the overwhelming love felt when someone makes you feel worthy of living again.

That is the story of Logan and Lottie.

This story is so honest and pure that you can't not be moved. Logan shares his passion for life and living after loosing someone to the stress that is living pay check to pay check to support yo

Like the perfect symphony written in musical notes, the characters in this story could not have been written any better and the intertwining of their lives was yet another masterpiece written by Melanie Moreland. Lottie and Logan have an instant connection but one that is completely misunderstood, but through his music the best of each is brought to the forefront and made for a heart warming true love story. There is no fluff or pomp and circumstance within the chapters, but just honest emotions ...more

I loved this book! Melanie Moreland has a way with bringing opposites together. Lottie and Logan were destined for each other. I loved the way Logan pursued Lottie. She really needed a man like him in her life. He took care of her and gave her what she was missing.

Heart Strings made me happy. I really enjoyed the writing and story. Melanie Moreland does it again!!

I have been new to Melanie Moreland, yes, idiot that I am...Because, this is the second full novel I have read by her and I am sold. Sold on her ability to touch the reader just right if the reader is willing to be caught up in a terrific story. In Heart Strings, she took on more than just a love story, she took on life lessons we all need to heed.

This story is why I love Melanie Moreland's books. I have been going through a hard patch in life and these books take me to another place with wonderful characters.

Lottie blames herself for her brother's death because she feels like she could not save him, so she immerses herself in the family business. The only good thing in her life right now is the musician that sings while waiting for the train. Logan is a part time musician while taking the train he sees a beautiful girl that looks like t

This book by Melanie Moreland was perfectly titled. My heart strings were tugged on so hard. Logan and Lottie has that type of connection that one could only dream about. They filled each others soul with so much happiness and love. Not only was this an amazing love story that proved that there isn’t a time frame for love but also a second chance to mend relationships. Heart Strings is a feel good, emotional, bring happy tears to your eyes type of read! Outstanding!l This deserves all my heartfe ...more

What a beautiful story that will completely tug at your heart strings. It reminds us that we need to listen to our heart and see beyond the surface.
Lottie is so unhappy at work but each evening she finds solace in the music of a street musician at the subway station.
Logan is not what he seems to be on first impressions. He is so sweet and protective of Lottie from the very start.

Heart Strings – By Melanie Moreland

A beautiful Princess is losing herself in sorrow and grief and when a carmel eyed guitar player looks into her eyes and sees her soul, he does what every good knight does, and he recues her. Her pain calls to him and his music and his heart answer that call.

When you have ten tissues beside you and your not even through the first chapter you know this book is going to be something special, and it is so very, very special!

The heart wants what the heart wants. Logan and Lottie not only prove this to themselves, but to her parents as well. Lottie’s dad takes a while to come around to liking Logan. Her mom however gave them him a chance and for to know him better. They each had a death that happened in their lives that have effected them and that is one thing that I believe brings them together. Logan is a calming force for Lottie and she is his muse. Through misconceptions they get to know each other and bring out ...more

This book made my heart happy! Opposites attract as Logan and Lottie meet in a subway station, bond over burgers and fall in love in a whirl wind courtship. Logan is the swooniest of heros: sweet, protective, demanding. Lottie is a lost soul who shines after finding the love she so craves.

This book has everything I've come to love about Melanie Moreland's stories: the instant connection, the fun dialog, the steamy scenes, its all here plus a few surprising twists that left me teary eyed. Defini

Perfect title for this heartbreaking, heartwarming standalone story that certainly tugs at your heart strings throughout the book. Oh the feels - Miss Moreland certainly knows how to bring out all the emotions in me, or should I say, wrings out all of my emotions.

This book spoke absolute volumes to me. Beautiful story of life, loss, love and learning to live again. Melanie has a way with words that bring you front and center into her stories. The heartache so palpable it literally steals your breath away. The emotions pull you into this beautifully woven story of finding your forever and never letting go. Amazing read!!❤️

I’ve read all Melanie’s Books and I think this has gone to the first place in my personal ranking.
From the begging until the end this sweet love story traps you in a way I can’t describe. The way Melanie writes and describes all, teleports you directly to the story, it looks like you are in that train station with your popcorn watching all happen.
Lottie and Logan’s story is a story about love but it’s also a sad story about a heavy lost. I never lived what Lottie had to live but I could feel her

Then a man named Montgomery Logan truly sees her. The highlight of her day is listening to the sexy musician that played in the subway station every evening. His music brought her a sense of peace.

I just couldn't go where this one was going. At 15%, my credulity is strained to breaking. They've been looking at each other for weeks, communicating silently, but on a soul-deep level so that Logan knows her. He gets her. He has, essentially, the key to her soul!

And if that weren't hard enough to get past, she's busy wearing out her life trying to live up to the ghost of a dead brother for reason that are entirely in her head. Like, she imagines that her parents will actually love her if she w

Polar opposite thats what Logan and Lottie are. Lottie is a workaholic who isn't enjoying her life.. work work work thats all she does to please her father who is also her boss. Each day it feels longer and more trying but her highlight of each day is hearing

Heart Strings is a sweet, beautiful and emotional novel. I adored it. It had everything I wanted and hoped for from a Melanie Moreland novel. I love her writing, her love stories and her characters. All of them have something unique. Lottie and Logan are amazing characters. I love them together, because they are just perfect for each other. They will be a solid, strong and beautiful couple.

I've really enjoyed every book that I've read by Melanie Moreland.
My first one was over 5 years ago- "Over The Fence".
I love her writing style and such original stories.

A man at the train station notices her beauty and how sad she looks while he busks near where she
