They've spent their lives pushing each other away, but what will happen when they need each other most?
Anita Martin doesn't expect much from life. Growing up on the street, bouncing from one foster home to another, she learned to rely only on herself. Even after she finally found a loving family to take her in, she was still an outsider—something Abraham, one of the family's older sons, never let her forget.
Abraham Evans doesn't know how Ani always manages to get under his skin, only that's she's been doing it since they were teens. She is—and always has been—undeniably gorgeous. But he's never met anyone as pissed off at the world as Ani.
For fifteen years, Ani and Bram have agreed on exactly one thing: they can't stand each other—until one night when their anger gives way to passion. Yet even as Ani and Bram begin to secretly seek comfort in one another's arms, they remain emotionally worlds apart. When Ani's life takes a dramatic turn and she realizes she needs more than Bram can give, their fragile, no-strings relationship unravels. One way or another, Ani is determined to survive. But when Bram finally admits his true feelings, he may discover Ani has moved on without him.
Change of Heart was everything I love in a book. Angst. Forbidden. Raw. Love and hate.
I met Bram and Anita in Unbreak My Heart and I was left wanting more of them.
Bram had a temper and was an overprotective brother. He’s rough and tough and real. His chemistry with Anita from the beginning is filled with tension. These two do not get along for anything in the world. They are always at each other. It’s push and pull with these two at every turn.
“You’re such a f*cking pain in the a**,” Bram gasped, pressing against me as he kissed me hard.”
Anita is a heroine that is very raw and real she doesn’t let people get too close. She was like a firework ready to go off and Bram was the match that set her off. Then there was no going back for these two.
They both have to face some major life changing events and it wasn’t all pretty. All the characters in this book including the supporting characters make this story what it is.
“We’ll make our promises later,” he whispered. “When you’re wearing a long white dress and I’m in a tux.”
Nicole’s writing is very natural nothing about her characters feels forced. This is my second book by her and I will continue to read her. I’m kinda of hoping we get more of some of the other characters.
Top 5 Movies
The one-liners in that movie are fantastic, the storyline is absolute gold, and I think it’s one of the realist depictions of a love story that I’ve ever seen on film. I also have a deep and abiding love for Ellen Page.
Who doesn’t love the story of a dorky teenager who gets to go on the road with a rock band in the seventies? I mean, really.
Patrick Swayze anyone? Plus, the music and the dancing and the chemistry were fantastic. It’s the clichéd story of the bad boy and the good girl, and I can’t get enough of it.
Pretty in Pink
I really love anything that John Hughes made, but Pretty in Pink is probably my favorite. I love so many things about it, but to narrow it down I’ll just say, Jon Cryer as Duckie, James Spader as the asshole rich kid, the record store, and the homemade prom dress.
David Bowie wears spandex and dances around with a bunch of puppets. Enough said.
