Honestly my mind is still trying to comprehend the utter sheer perfection that was Heart Sick by new to me author Monica James.
Monica had me devouring this book in a one sitting read, which is why not only was it a 5 ⭐️ for me.
It also ended up being a Top Fav Read of 2023 of mine!
Bravo, Bravo Monica James!!!
Heart Sick is the first book in the Heart Transfer Duet. To tell you the truth I wasn’t sure what I was expecting with this book. All I know is that the moment Heart Sick hit my Kindle I started reading. This is Luna and Dutch’s story.
Monica James is a dark, mad and twisted genius! I have never read anything like this.
If this is book one, I have no idea where we are going with book two. I had written a synopsis of this books story. But I have decided you don't need it. You just need feelings about Heart Sick. I am going to say.... Wow! What did I read? It is a good book, very good book.
At one point this author had me signing of the cross and I am not even Catholic! What a scene!
This book is dark and there are warnings about reading it. Meanwhile, I am looking forward to Book 2. I can't imagine what Monica James has in store for the next book! 5+ STARS

People in real life don’t tend to stand around summarizing their pasts in their heads, or thinking about their entire life history. So if the first thing you do when introducing a new character is summarize their life—or even a portion of their life—your reader will likely fall asleep.
Music is all around us—we just need to feel it.
"There is more to life than music."
But that's where she's wrong. if I don't have music running through my veins, then I don't want this heart because music is in my heart.
But looking at Bowie [aka Dutch], I can't deny that the similarities don't just stop at the name. They have the same tousled dirty blonde hair. The same intense blue eyes. Both are blessed with a sharp jawline. Both are slim yet muscular and tall. And now to witness Bowie behave the way Misha would, it's too much.
His tenacity, it reminds me so much of Misha. I can't help but feel I am looking at him right now.
” […] The recipients have said they felt a connection to the donor’s family.”
I guess that makes sense, but what if they were blood family? Wouldn’t that be kind of… weird? Not that any of this is “normal”.
“Some reports have said that the recipient, in fact, marries their donor’s spouse or siblings.”
During therapy, I couldn't stop watching her because I feel like I'm looking at her through familiar eyes.
I understand why Bowie wanted to end his life because music is his life and without it, he'd rather not live.
I have the heart of a motherf*cker in me.
