There are no surprises when you read His Heart by Claire Kingsley. Just from reading the blurb you know this story will be emotional, heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. It is a story about love transcending all and giving you a second chance when you had all but given up. But how it comes together will captivate you.

Brooke broke my heart. You could feel her pain and loss. Liam was her chance at love and happiness. How can someone overcome such a loss? But when Sebastian sees her years later, it’s like his heart has finally come alive. Brooke’s journey and their story was touching and beautiful. It was never an easy one, but it was theirs.
This is such a beautiful story. I loved every minute of reading this book. Probably one of my top favorite of this year. It was so emotional, but also full of hope, love, and second chances. You will love every single character and the story will pull you right in.
