Run to this book! Do not walk, RUN!! HEART BONES hooked me from the very first page and I’m not embarrassed to tell you that I did not do anything I was supposed to do until I was finished reading! Needless to say, my husband was constantly yelling at me to stop reading! Obviously he has never read a Colleen Hoover novel because everyone knows once you start there is no way to stop. I devour her stories and everyone of them has crushed my heart and left me crying. HEART BONES does not disappoint. Colleen Hoover, you owe me a box of tissues! There isn’t a single thing about this book that I didn’t love. It was wonderful, mesmerizing, hypnotizing, heartbreaking and breathtaking.

This is going to be a shorter review because my honest opinion is that it’s best to go into HEART BONES knowing as little as possible about the actual story so I won’t tell you anything that’ll ruin the experience here. At times I was shocked and started to cry.   I kept saying, “How the heck can someone get through this?” There are also moments of humor, holding my breath for the next chapter and hoping for the ending I wanted more than ever!  But I can say that I was hooked from the very first page and completely drawn into these characters’ lives.  HEART BONES is not your typical Colleen Hoover story. I love that she expanded her normal writing and would love to read more of these romance as well as mystery books from her. She blew me away and left me craving more! The romance in HEART BONES is not instant and yet totally believable!

Once I started reading HEART BONES I discovered that there’s even more to this story than meets the eye. There’s an added layer to it that I absolutely loved but that I won’t mention because discovering it as you read is honestly the best. One of the things I love most about Colleen Hoover’s writing is how deeply she makes me care for her characters and how strongly she makes me feel for them. Deception and pain, love and loss, secrets and truths, hope and redemption—they all twist and tangle together creating another unforgettable novel from one of the freshest and most trusted voices in romance. Finally, you need to read HEART BONES.  It will surprise, shock, impress, grip and absorb you into its story. And those wonderful characters, how happy I am for having ‘met’ them! They will stick with me for a very long time. I just know the same thing will happen for you…


Life and a dismal last name are the only two things Beyah Grim’s parents ever gave her. After carving her path all on her own, Beyah is well on her way to bigger and better things, thanks to no one but herself.

With only two short months separating her from the future she’s built and the past she desperately wants to leave behind, an unexpected death leaves Beyah with no place to go during the interim. Forced to reach out to her last resort, Beyah has to spend the remainder of her summer on a peninsula in Texas with a father she barely knows. Beyah’s plan is to keep her head down and let the summer slip by seamlessly, but her new neighbor Samson throws a wrench in that plan.

Samson and Beyah have nothing in common on the surface.

She comes from a life of poverty and neglect; he comes from a family of wealth and privilege. But one thing they do have in common is that they’re both drawn to sad things. Which means they’re drawn to each other. With an almost immediate connection too intense for them to continue denying, Beyah and Samson agree to stay in the shallow end of a summer fling. What Beyah doesn’t realize is that a rip current is coming, and it’s about to drag her heart out to sea. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!🎃


  1. Tell me how you really feel Susan, Do I need to read Heart Bones? Believe it or not, I have not yet read a Colleen Hoover book. This one sounds like one I could start with though. Great review! You really intrigued me with this one. ❤️🦴📚
