As the daughter of a hoarder, Phoenix Fuller had a tough childhood. So when the handsome, popular Riley Stinson became her boyfriend in high school, she finally felt as though she had something to be proud of. Phoenix was desperate not to lose him - especially once she found out that she was pregnant. Yes, she might have acted a bit obsessive when he broke up with her. But she did not run down the girl he started dating next. Unfortunately there was no way to prove her innocence. Now, after serving her time in prison, Phoenix has been released. All she wants to do is return to Whiskey Creek and get to know her son. But Jacob's father isn't exactly welcoming. Riley doesn't trust Phoenix, and he doesn't want her in Jacob's life. He is, however, ready to find someone to love. And he wants a good mother for his son. He has no idea that he's about to find both.

"This Heart of Mine is a potently emotional, powerfully life-affirming contemporary romance." (Booklist starred review)
I loved this audio book and story. Loved how it kept me intrigued and made me feel.
I loved this second chance at love story. Had a bit angst, but the feels and hope it inspired was very touching.
Phoenix. I loved her character and Carly added so much to her character. Made her real.
Yes! Carly added so much to an already amazing story!
Loved it! Top read for me!
Love all romance, dark romance, romantic comedy and suspenseful romance!
I absolutely love the Whiskey Creek series and this one did not disappoint! Phoenix is one tough heroine. This book will make you laugh and cry! Riley is an awesome Dad and Jake, their son is an admirable teenage boy who's adorable!
The story could have been cut in half without the constant "woe is me", "I'm not worthy", mantra. It just kept going on & on & ON! Seriously, why do people think this is entertaining? BN has had some great books and I've enjoyed many, but I think her creativity has been tapped out. She is officially in the no-imagination/cookie-cutter/formulaic authors.
I finally purchase this book on Audible after listening to it several times. I decided that I wanted to have it available to enjoy anytime. There are a lot of interesting angles and messages all wrapped up in a very delicious love story.
I love this story. Riley's mother almost ruined the entire story. She is awful. Throughout the book, I wanted him to cut ties with her. She is every sterotype of a meddlesome, rotten mother.
