I was thrilled when I was asked to review this book. My good friend Kathryn from Tsk, Tsk raved about it, so I knew it was going to be fantastic. Fantastic doesn't even begin to describe this book, In a Heartbeat is a beautiful masterpiece to the epic power of undying hope & love.
The book opens with the carefree, optimistic & loving Stella. After a few life altering events, Stella has the desire to shake off the dust and reboot herself by going to visit her cousin Lisa for the summer in picturesque Italy. From the aqua crystal clear waters, to boldly painted shops in town Teodora paints a breathtaking backdrop for this sexy love story fixing to unfold.
Soon after arriving in Italy, Stella meets Lisa's friend Max *sigh & cue the fireworks* the two quickly find themselves falling for each other & spend every minute together. Max cooks for Stella (yes he cooks), takes her on a picture perfect vacation & even teaches her how to drive his car.
As her romantic summer draws to a close, Stella realizes she has fallen deeply in love with Max (can you blame the girl?) Due to an overwhelming obstacle in her life, Stella panics & tries to deny her feelings for Max. Is their love strong enough to withstand the dark shadows that still haunt Stella?? You'll have to read In a Heartbeat to find out!!
