REVIEW – CHANGE OF HEART (Unbreak My Heart, #2) by Nicole Jacquelyn



They’ve spent their lives pushing each other away, but what will happen when they need each other most?

Anita Martin doesn’t expect much from life. Growing up on the street, bouncing from one foster home to another, she learned to rely only on herself. Even after she finally found a loving family to take her in, she was still an outsider-something Abraham, one of the family’s older sons, never let her forget.

Abraham Evans doesn’t know how Ani always manages to get under his skin, only that’s she’s been doing it since they were teens. She is-and always has been-undeniably gorgeous. But he’s never met anyone as pissed off at the world as Ani.

For fifteen years, Ani and Bram have agreed on exactly one thing: they can’t stand each other-until one night when their anger gives way to passion. Yet even as Ani and Bram begin to secretly seek comfort in one another’s arms, they remain emotionally worlds apart. When Ani’s life takes a dramatic turn and she realizes she needs more than Bram can give, their fragile, no-strings relationship unravels. One way or another, Ani is determined to survive. But when Bram finally admits his true feelings, he may discover Ani has moved on without him . .

I was jumping into something and I had no clue how far I’d fall. I was terrified. But this was my chance. The chance I’d never thought I’d have. I had to take it.


CHANGE OF HEART is a story jam-packed with incredible steam and heartbreaking angst. I loved the hero and heroine and the beautiful family that surrounded them with so much love and support. Once I picked up this book it really was quite hard to put down. Nicole Jacquelyn’s storytelling ability is exquisite and I know that this won’t be the last book that I read by her.

Ani was abandoned by her mother at a very young age and had grown up in the foster care system for most of her life. She’s had more bad experiences than good within all of the foster homes she has lived in, but her last one turned out to be with the best family a girl could ever hope for. She ended up with the family while in her teens. They had adopted twin sons who were a bit older and who were no longer living in the family home. She got along well with one but was always at odds with the other, Bram. Years later when both are adults, after Friday night dinner with the family, things take a different turn for Ani and Bram.

Things get intense during a heated argument between the two and they ultimately end up having sex in the back of Ani’s pickup truck. Afterward, it gets really awkward between them as they both try to figure out where their heads are at. Bram makes it clear that nothing serious can develop between them and Ani appears to be of the same mindset, but obviously there’s something brewing that had always been there just beneath the surface. Just when the two are starting to realize their true feelings for each other, something unexpected happens that changes Ani’s life in a big way and has Bram running in the opposite direction.

As Ani tries to build her new life she struggles with the heartache she feels over losing Bram. She’s a woman with a tough exterior and has had to harden her heart to protect herself. So when Bram finally wakes up and sees that he’s made the biggest mistake of his life, will Ani open her heart back up to him or has the damage been done?

Change of Heart is an enemies to lovers story that also had the second chance romance trope to boot. It’s also about family and how blood doesn’t always make someone your family, but that love truly does.

CHANGE OF HEART is currently available. It’s one you should definitely add to your TBRs.
