HEA Book Tours & Book Junky Tours Presents: Your Heart to Keep by Amanda Mackey; #Book Tour & #Review

Author: Amanda Mackey 
This is a stand alone novel
Genre: Romance
Rating:  5 Stars
Told in the First Person.

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from HEA Book Tours, Book Junky Tours, and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".

What would you do if the heart you loved ended up in a stranger? 

For bad boy Jax, that's exactly what happens. His lover, Chloe has died in the car accident they were both involved in. Grieving for his lost love, Jax soon discovers that she was an organ donor and her heart, the very one he vowed to love, always, has been given to a stranger. 

Holly Jenkins has a medical condition that requires a new heart. Having been on the organ registry for thirteen months, she finally gets the call she's been waiting for. 

After the surgery she begins to crave things she never has before and has the inherent need to connect with Jax and the family of Chloe. 

What she doesn't expect is the strong pull towards a guy who doesn't want a bar of her and can't come to terms with the fact that Holly now has his girlfriend's heart. 

It isn't until he literally feels the pulse of his dead girlfriends, beating heart that things change...



My Thoughts:

Holly Jenkins is a young woman with lots of challenges.  Jaxon Reynolds is a man in a lot of pain.  His pain gives her new hope.  This story shows both the sadness and happiness that comes with organ donation.  It’s a great inspiration to those on the fence whether or not to sign up.  It gives the reader another perspective that you don’t think about.

Jaxon had me laughing at one point, even though at times this book took on a very serious theme.  He gives an interesting spin on why men wear beards.  But this book can also bring tears to your eyes so make sure to keep tissue handy.  The author has a way of getting across to her readers how real the hurt and pain these characters feel is.

This is a story that I sat back and just enjoyed the story for what it was.  It had a very important message but she wrote it in such a way that it makes you wonder how much of a personal knowledge she may have on the subject.  But she didn’t stop there.  Holly had another physical challenge that she had to overcome.  I applaud her for going the extra mile.  It all felt so real.  This is a book that I can see myself reading again and also recommending to others.  Our author has made me a fan and I can’t wait to read more.


I am married and a mother of two beautiful children, living in sunny Queensland, Australia. I’ve been reading books ever since I can remember and love all things related to books. Writing has become an extension of that and I hope to pursue a full time writing career. I currently write part-time and work as a remedial massage therapist. I love spending time with family and hope to one day travel to Italy and England.
