✿ Blog Tour ✿ Giveaway ✿ Saving Our Hearts (Matters of the Heart #2) ✿ Velvet Reed ✿



** This series must be read in order from book 1. They are not stand alones. **

** This book is recommended for people over 18 years due to strong language and sexual content.**

When your whole world shatters and time stands still, recovery is never easy. Plans
and dreams, ripped apart now seem impossible and finding a steady rhythm for your beating heart seems unattainable.

Cole Tierney and Grace Rivers had a bright, uncomplicated future ahead of them, but the accident changed that. In the aftermath, there are wide reaching consequences, not only for Cole and Grace, but their loved ones too. 

Only together can they battle to survive the impact. Is it enough for them to heal and fight for their future?
With just one glimmer of hope before them, will a small miracle have the strength to save their hearts?

ARC received for an honest review

You have to have read The Rhythm Of My Heart before reading Saving Our Hearts as it continues on right from the end.

In the aftermath of events at the end of The Rhythm Of My Heart, Cole and Gracies lives are thrown into turmoil
OMG I was having heart palpitations as this book began!!  Our darlings were left in quite a position at the end of book one, and I started reading with trepidation.  They have to all be ok, right?

And wowsers, what an emotional rollercoaster we are taken on in this second book.

A lot of questions from book 1 are answered in book 2.  We find out who the stalker was (well, I pretty much knew who it was in the first book, but the whys and what fors were a mystery still). 

Then there is the bitch Miranda.  Gah, I wanted to throat punch her as we learn more and more about her actions just such a nasty, nasty piece of work.

Nothing is going to be easy for Cole and Gracie and their family, but you felt like you were there as they overcame each and every hurdle.

So, do they finally get their HEA?  Or will everything be to much for their love to endure?

Nope, for that you will have to read for yourself.

You cant help but want to know what will happen to them all next.
I LOVED the development in not only our MCs but also the secondary characters I particularly adored Sam aka Vagina Man.

Ms Reed has drawn me into the world of Cole, Gracie, their families and friends.   The story is well rounded and developed, the characters enchanting.

I am very much looking forward to the next book.

Now Ms Reed, can you please let me know does Dr Cole make house calls?


When Olivia and Ashley leave the kitchen and Charlie moves to the fridge to get the
drinks, I take a second to adjust myself. A few deep breaths and I’m willing
myself to calm down. Damn, that woman drives me all sorts of crazy. I start to relive the feel of her against me when the loud clank of beer bottles getting slammed down on the counter grabs my attention.

            “You want to explain what the hell that was all about?” Charlie demands, and when I look at his face, I see unbridled fury there. What the hell?

            “What exactly do I need to explain?” I question, knowing full well he’s referring to him and Olivia catching Ashley and I in a slightly compromising position.

“Don’t play dumb with me, Sam. My family’s been through enough crap in the last few
weeks without having you come in and causing any more problems.”

“Your family?” I question, because hell, I’m not going to stand here and let him act all high and mighty with me. As much as sometimes I do feel out of place in the Tierney’s, they are the only family I have and I love every one of them, and that includes Gracie now too. Then I have the sudden thought that maybe Charlie has a thing for Ashley. It makes sense. She’s fantastic with Ruby and loyal to Gracie. She’s been around Charlie all her life. Maybe he wants her and is jealous I was kissing her  instead of him.

“Yes, my family,” he snaps back. “You need to leave Ashley alone, Sam. She’s not a
toy for you to play with.”

Grace Rivers is your everyday twenty-five year old. She could have the world at her feet, but instead chooses to help run the family business. After
experiencing great loss early in her life, Grace values what's most important: her family and friends. But she aches to find that certain someone—that one great, passionate love who values family as much as she does.

Cole Tierney loves his life. He has a wonderful family, a loyal best friend and a successful career as an ER doctor. The only downside is he wants  someone to share it with. After being used and left heartbroken, he wants to find someone who will love him for him and not his or his family's status. 

"Every beat my heart makes is for you. Every time it beats faster it's because of  you—because you're near me, because of your smile—because you take my breath away."

Their two hearts collide by chance and an undeniable connection is quickly

But when others are plotting against their happiness, will their love flatline, or will the rhythm of their hearts continue to beat as one?
