Actual Rating: 4.5 stars
New Adult | Forbidden | Stepbrother Romance
Hearts & Thorns is the third book in the Magnolia Cove series but can stand alone. This book is a young adult/new adult crossover, but I recommend it more for new adult readers rather than young adults. This is because the book has a slightly taboo plot , sex, drinking, and all that other fun stuff we adults enjoy! Half of the book takes place in high school, the other half when the characters are adults. Hence the reason I’m saying it’s a crossover.
That being said, Ella has given her readers another angst filled and DRAMATIC read with the best kind of slow burn around. This book set my heart on FIRE. I read it in one sitting because I honestly couldn’t look away from the pages. I was enamored with the story and hooked to it from beginning to end. There were a few things that got on my nerves of course, doesn’t every book have SOMETHING that niggles at you? But other than that, I found it to be a fantastic read. I know romance readers who have enjoyed Ella’s books in the past are going to go CRAZY for this one!
If you’ve read the first two books in this series, you’ll remember Jackson and Willa. They are the stepsiblings that got caught “being together” (to put it nicely). Willa was shown in those books to be sent away to live with her father because of their forbidden relationship but we didn’t know EXACTLY what went down. Until now…
Readers will get an in depth look at how Jackson and Willa got together in the first place and the aftermath of getting caught. This is a FORBIDDEN , stepbrother romance of the PUREEST KIND. You will feel each and every emotion that goes through both of them and feel as if you’re there living the hell they are put through with them. Their story isn’t an easy one to read in terms of emotions and what happens between them, but so worth it! I can’t wait to see what the rest of the world thinks!
Of course, I enjoyed this book (duh, who doesn’t enjoy an Ella Fields book). However, I did mention that one thing annoyed me which prevented me from giving it the full five stars and that’s how STUPID Jackson got with Willa. I couldn’t STAND how easy it was for him to push her away and I wanted to go into the book and slap him! He’s the reason for the angst and my wanting to toss my iPad out the window! Some readers are bound to feel the same. Other than this, he redeemed himself and I loved Willa to pieces!
So, go forth and read this beautifully FORBIDDEN read. I know so many of you are going to LOVE IT!
