Genre: Contemporary Romance
Actual Rating: 4.75 stars
Harper Sloan has proven time and again her ability to write the perfect romance novel. Unconscious Hearts made me swoon in unexpected ways. I went into the book thinking it would be another run of the mill, dirty romance, that takes place in Sin City, but it wasn't. It's a beautifully powerful love story about two people with painful pasts who find unexpected love with one another. Thorn and Ari together made me swoon. They gave me butterflies that stayed in my stomach from their first meeting all the way until the last page. They also made me FEEL, which is something I find lacking in many romances today. I truly loved this story, and I love Harper Sloan for once again, making my heart flutter. This is a gorgeous story with a little bit of a twist, and is downright compelling. I highly recommend it to all romance fans.
The only thing missing from this story was the feeling of Vegas. It's pretty clear that Harper knows how to write perfectly flawed characters who are not only likable but realistic, but I felt the setting was lacking in this one (hence why I gave it an actual rating of 4.75). This story could have taken place anywhere in the world as far as I'm concerned because there was nothing Vegas about it. When I think of Vegas, I think bright lights, gambling, lots of drinking, and staying up until the wee hours of the morning. None of this was a part of the story. Frankly, I'm okay with that because the romance was top notch and I didn't need a descriptive setting to love the book, but some people want to feel where it takes place and it lacks in this book.
With that, this is the first book in the Hearts of Vegas series and can stand alone. I am very much looking forward to the next book (which will be Piper's story- an interconnected character) and am anxiously awaiting it's release (crosses fingers that it comes sometime soon).
