Three of Hearts has left me smiling...
Three of Hearts by W. Ferraro
Release date: September 17, 2013
My rating: 4 stars
Where to start with this.... The first thing I liked about this book is the use of unusual characters. What I mean by that is the use of a "curvaceous" woman. The main character, Mae, is not your typical drop dead, model looking woman. She is a real woman with real features. And the handsome man falls for her beautiful physique and bubbly personality. Kudos to W. Ferraro for this! I applaud you!
So, what else did I like? Well, I laughed and cried right along with the characters. The story is more believable than most. Man loses wife, meets a charming nurse that gets his blood pumping. Just when you think everything is too perfect... Bam! Things start to fall apart. The connection these characters have is a strong connection that may or may not survive. Either way, you are left with your heart on your sleeve from the love these two have found.
Now, what I wasn't fond of.... Honestly, some of the exchanges were too cheesy. This is the one thing that stopped this book from getting a five star rating. Too much use of "honey" and such. It was a little sappy. I found myself rolling my eyes at a few points over the sappiness. I get love can get sappy, but it almost took away from the emotions in the book in a few places.
