About Mia’s Heart
Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

My name is Mia Giannis.
I am seventeen years old.
I live in Valese, Caberra.
This has become my mantra and my lifeline, having recently lost my memory due to a scary natural disaster.
Yeah. I have amnesia. Messed up, right?
You don't know the half of it.
Not remembering anything has turned my world upside down. My parents try their hardest to “remind” me of who I was, but it doesn't feel right. Or, if what they're saying is true and that really was me, I'm not sure I like that person very much.
And then there’s my love life. Apparently, Gavin Ariastasis is my oldest and best friend in the world. Also, apparently, we’ve never dated. But now, noticing him for what feels like the first time, he’s making my heart do somersaults. He knows me inside and out—the real me. Plus, he’s sexy and charming as hell. Sounds perfect, right?
But then... there’s the new guy. Quinn McKeyen – tall, gorgeous and deliciously American. His mischievous grin and slow Midwestern drawl turn my insides to mush in two seconds flat making me question who I really am and what I really want.
Seriously. What am I supposed to do with all that?! I feel torn between them, but I barely even know who I am, let alone what I want.
I just hope my indecisive heart will clue me in. And sooner rather than later…before I lose what little of my mind that I have left."

Courtney Cole has quickly become one of my fave authors. Creating wonderful story lines along with amazing characters, I know that once I immerse myself in her story, there's no looking back.

What I loved most about this book is the plot line. The reader is introduce to Mia who has lived a life so calculated  Everything must be presentable. Everything must be in order. And Mia, like every other teen has rebelled. So when she loose her memory, I was anxious to see if she would change or come back just as she was. I like that Mia does change as she does see's herself in a different light. Mia's loosing her memory helped her look at the bigger picture instead of the confined box she was in.

Now, the love interest definitely took me on a spin. I like that Mia has a friend from the past and once from the present fighting for her heart. Both guys are admirable but only one truly loves her. I enjoyed how each male fought her affection fairly. With Mia's loosing her memory, each guy has a fair shot. Along with other calamity going on, Mia learns so much a bout herself as well as others around her. She learns to fight for what she believes in her heart.

Mia's Heart is a beautiful romantic story, filled with stolen moments.  It's a timeless romantic of finding love right in front of your face. Mia's Heart is a stunning romance that you will love.

I give it 4 BITES!

    1. Welcome Melissa! Hope you get a chance to read it.

  4. I really enjoy this 'series' as well! I honestly didn't know who she was going to pick. I thought I knew going in but then I started to doubt... So while I normally say no to love triangle situations I kind of liked the wondering how things would go.
    Glad you enjoyed it!

  5. This sounds like such a fun and fluffy read! I don't mind love triangles if they're done well, and this romance seems cute. Thanks for the review!
