Fear and love both have some things in common. Both words have four letters, both are emotions and both frighten us. It is up to us to decide what we want and how to proceed but one thing is for certain, one emotion will always outweigh the other.
Larissa Santos is a beautiful and quiet woman who doesn’t bother anyone. She is a hairdresser and a homebody so when she was suddenly stalked by the maintenance man in her complex she was more than terrified. Larissa knew it was him but couldn’t prove it so essentially she had no protection from him intruding on her personal space. Taking matters into her own hands, Larissa defended herself when her stalker broke into her apartment into the middle of the night. Though he was no longer around she never quite felt safe, and she had good reason to feel that way. Would Larissa ever have peace again or will she continue to live her life on edge?
The Heart Has Reasons is very skillfully written for this freshman author. The characters are complete and thorough. They compliment each other without taking away from each other’s story. You have romance, suspense, drama and you find yourself conflicted on which character to root for and who you should boo. It is a story of heartbreak with a feel good theme to it because you find yourself romanticizing as you read. You can see the characters clearly in your mind and you often will have moments where you find yourself smiling. Though it states that it is over 400 pages you find yourself wanting it never to end, I enjoyed this story. In addition, the cover is hot so that lets you know that it is going to be a steamy read. Congratulations to Martine Marchand on her first novel, I look forward to reading more from her in the future.
The Heart Has Reasons is available for purchase through Amazon.com in kindle edition.
