Saving Our Hearts by Velvet Reed blog tour with review and giveaway

** This series must be read in order from book 1. They are not stand alones. **
** This book is recommended for people over 18 years due to strong language and sexual content.**

When your whole world shatters and time stands still, recovery is never easy. Plans and dreams, ripped apart now seem impossible and finding a steady rhythm for your beating heart seems unattainable. 

Cole Tierney and Grace Rivers had a bright, uncomplicated future ahead of them, but the accident changed that. In the aftermath, there are wide reaching consequences, not only for Cole and Grace, but their loved ones too.

Only together can they battle to survive the impact. Is it enough for them to heal and fight for their future? 

With just one glimmer of hope before them, will a small miracle have the strength to save their hearts?

My Review
I received a copy of Saving Our Hearts in exchange for an honest review for Six Chicks and Their Love of Books Blog. This is book two in the Matters of the Heart series and book 1, Rhythm of the Heart MUST be read FIRST in order to properly follow the story line.  

WOW! After the doozie of a cliffhanger we were left with in book 1, I anxiously awaited the publication of Saving Our Hearts to find out the fate of Gracie, Cole, and their unborn baby. Saving Our Hearts picks up right where Rhythm left off and Reed wastes no time pulling emotions from the reader. I was crying during the first chapter. Her writing is just brilliant and you feel every emotion as the characters do. Reed paints a vivid picture with her words making it easy for the reader to feel as if they were there.

This story answered many questions that we were left with after book 1. The nail biting suspense, the panty melting sex scenes, the angst and the raw passion portrayed by the characters made this book un-put-down-able for me. In addition to the main characters, Reed does a phenomenal job of incorporating the secondary characters and setting them up for their own stories as well.

I can't say enough good things about this book! If you are looking for a great romance with lots of angst, a great hero and heroine, suspense, and of course those super sexy scenes, then pick up this series today! An easy 5 star read for me and i am looking forward to read Sam and Ashley's story next.



When Olivia and Ashley leave the kitchen and Charlie moves to the fridge to get the drinks, I take a second to adjust myself. A few deep breaths and I’m willing myself to calm down. Damn, that woman drives me all sorts of crazy. I start to relive the feel of her against me when the loud clank of beer bottles getting slammed down on the counter grabs my attention.

            “You want to explain what the hell that was all about?” Charlie demands, and when I look at his face, I see unbridled fury there. What the hell?

            “What exactly do I need to explain?” I question, knowing full well he’s referring to him and Olivia catching Ashley and I in a slightly compromising position.

“Don’t play dumb with me, Sam. My family’s been through enough crap in the last few weeks without having you come in and causing any more problems.”

“Your family?” I question, because hell, I’m not going to stand here and let him act all high and mighty with me. As much as sometimes I do feel out of place in the Tierney’s, they are the only family I have and I love every one of them, and that includes Gracie now too. Then I have the sudden thought that maybe Charlie has a thing for Ashley. It makes sense. She’s fantastic with Ruby and loyal to Gracie. She’s been around Charlie all her life. Maybe he wants her and is jealous I was kissing her instead of him.

“Yes, my family,” he snaps back. “You need to leave Ashley alone, Sam. She’s not a toy for you to play with.”

Grace Rivers is your everyday twenty-five year old. She could have the world at her feet, but instead chooses to help run the family business. After experiencing great loss early in her life, Grace values what's most important: her family and friends. But she aches to find that certain someone—that one great, passionate love who values family as much as she does.

Cole Tierney loves his life. He has a wonderful family, a loyal best friend and a successful career as an ER doctor. The only downside is he wants someone to share it with. After being used and left heartbroken, he wants to find someone who will love him for him and not his or his family's status. 

"Every beat my heart makes is for you. Every time it beats faster it's because of you—because you're near me, because of your smile—because you take my breath away." 

Their two hearts collide by chance and an undeniable connection is quickly made.

But when others are plotting against their happiness, will their love flatline, or will the rhythm of their hearts continue to beat as one?
