Expect: cute goats, college parties, caramels, a hot, broody farm boy and a broken girl who can’t stop loving him.
An emotional friends to lovers romance full of risky secrets and late-night lessons in seduction.
Dylan is my best friend, and the only person in my life who understands me. He doesn’t mind my social awkwardness or my weird history. The only glitch? He doesn’t know that I’ve been hopelessly, desperately in love with him since the first day we picked apples together in his family’s orchard.
But I know better than to confess.
Now that I’ve joined him at college, I’m seeing a new side of him. This Dylan drinks and has a lot of sex. None of it with me.
Until the moment I foolishly ask him to tutor me in more than algebra…and he actually says yes.
One crazy night sets our friendship on fire. But now my heart lies in ashes, and nothing will ever be the same again.
Heartland is a standalone college romance set in the True North world. Expect: a young, broody farmer, a giant crush, tasty caramels, cute goats and late night confessions.
I have to start this review by saying this is one of my all-time favorite series. So I was very excited to get a new installment. While I’m not normally a fan of young adult romance, I dove right in because of this author and this series. I’m so glad I did. This book is the perfect addition.
Dylan is the youngest of the Shipley family and we were introduced to Chastity in previous books. Dylan seems like the easy going one, but there is so much more to him. I loved peeling back the layers on both Dylan and Chastity. They are perfect for each other. Their story arc was believable and perfect for this couple. Many moments in the book felt authentic. There were so many sweet moments that snuck up on you, but left your heart melted. There are also some very hot and steamy moments that left you breathless.
Even though I’ve referenced the previous books, this book can be read as a complete standalone. Each book is about a different couple with interconnected characters. I highly recommend this book and this series. It’s one of those that will just stay with you for a little while after reading it. Definitely add this book to your TBR list.
