THE HEART OF HIM is my first book I've read by Katie Fox. The blurb drew me to want to read this book. The intriguing concept of two people meeting at a banquet in honor of the organ donors and their recipients.
Cassidy Porter had lost the love of her life sixteen months ago. Every day since her beloved Adam had been gone, has been a struggle just to function. She was drowning in tears and grief. She was sad all the time.
Samuel Copeland has spent the entire twenty-eight years of his life in fear. He had been diagnosed with a genetic heart condition. The only cure was a heart transplant. He knew his own mother, who suffered from heart problems, had passed before a heart became available. So when out of the blue he suddenly was given a new lease on life by being given a healthy heart, he was so grateful for a second chance. He knew someone's loved one had died in order for him to receive this second chance.
Cassidy and Samuel had a very rough beginning when they first met. But fate seemed destined to put them together. Was it even possible for a guy and a girl to just be friends? Because there was an attraction, but maybe it was too soon. A girl who was lost in her own grief and drowning in sorrow. If they were meant to be broken, maybe they could be beautifully broken together.
This is not an easy relationship with lots of road blocks in their way. Their heartache and pain had made them who they were. It had torn them down, forcing them to build themselves back up and be stronger than the people they were yesterday. Be stronger than the people they could be tomorrow. Could two hearts be meant to beat only for each other?
