Great Read

When Hearts Collide: A Heartbeats College Romance. Book Three was another great read by Lorana Hoopes. Amanda was too busy in high school to date. She meets Caleb and is flattered that he seems to like Amanda. Jared has suspected that Caleb was part of the reason that Jared’s girlfriend disappeared. He meets Amanda and he’s secretly in love with her. He finds out that Amanda is seeing Caleb and knows that he has to keep history from repeating itself. I really enjoyed reading Amanda and Jared’s story.

Captivating coming of age story.

When Hearts Collide is a thought-provoking book in Lorana Hoopes Heartbeats series. The reader is quickly drawn into the life of Amanda, a young woman starting out at college. The author does a great job of portraying a freshman girl as she looks for friends she can relate to, deals with a curmudgeony roommate, and begins her first romantic relationship. Date rape is one of the subplots of the story and the author seems to have a good handle on the emotions and reactions of a victim and those around her, making the story realistic and relatable. There is a strong thread of faith in God and how Christians respond to difficult circumstances and find strength and help in God. Readers who enjoy romance, a little suspense, and coming of age stories will not want to miss When Hearts Collide.
I listened to a complimentary copy of the audiobook and Ariel Troutman does a nice job narrating Amanda's story, making for an enjoyable listening experience. I was not required to write a review and the opinions are my own.

Great, clean romance

I loved this clean romance. I like that Lorana Hoopes included Amanda's thoughts. We were able to hear her rationalizing and her inner debate of listening to her head or her friends. Great story! If young girls could learn to decipher the good guys from the bad through their friends and their inner feelings it would be helpful.

Must read for those entering college!

When Hearts Collide is from A Heartbeats (University) Romance series by Lorana Hoopes

This is a well written and well narrated book written especially for coming of ages adults. It takes place in college as two young women that are polar opposites are having to room together. With the struggles in living arrangements, meeting a handsome charmer, a really wonderful Christian young man, and a pro-life college ministry, she starts to find her way through the maze of college life.

She encounters some very difficult situations, including sexual assault and the trials afterward. She has made amazing friends that come to her aid just when she needed them.

I would definitely recommend this book to high school and college bound students. These issues can be very real.

Appropriate, timely subject

For me this is not an easy book to listen to because of the subject matter- college girls who get druged & raped by college men who are only interested in being sexual conquerors of women. It is an important subject for it happens on many campuses. It is very well writen & has an HEA. I very much liked the female voice of the woman who read the book. I received a free copy of the book from the author. This is my voluntary review.

touching great story

An amazing touching well written story. I was engaged in this standalone from beginning to end and loved how previous characters from the series were worked in. A beautiful story of redemption, temptations, hope, forgiveness, healing, abuse, rape, family, friends, support, and romance in such a sweet story of sharing faith. The characters and issues are relatable and show the meaning of having faith and a reminder to pay attention to signs. A beautifully narrated and expressed story.

Sweet & Real

Amanda is starting college. She didn’t date in high school, so when she met Caleb and he took a liking to her, she was smitten. Caleb is that one guy that everyone flocks to, good looking, popular and says he is a man of faith. Jared is part of Amanda’s prayer group and has his suspicions about Caleb. This is a fantastic story of coming of age. Amanda and Caleb are both people we all know. Amanda is naïve, and wants to trust, but knows Caleb may not be the one. Caleb is that stuck up, self-indulgent brat we love to hate. It’s real, and gritty and lets us feel how faith can help you live your life and get through the worst of times and celebrate the best.

Narrated by Ariel Troutman, it will shoot you back to that time and remind you of what is important with just an inflection in her voice. She is a wonderful narrator.
