Heartland by Sarina Bowen
Series: True North #7
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 28, 2020
An emotional friends to lovers romance full of risky secrets and late-night lessons in seduction.
Dylan is my best friend, and the only person in my life who understands me. He doesn’t mind my social awkwardness or my weird history. The only glitch? He doesn’t know that I’ve been hopelessly, desperately in love with him since the first day we picked apples together in his family’s orchard.
But I know better than to confess.
Now that we’re both in college together, I’m seeing a new side of him. College Dylan drinks and has a lot of sex. None of it with me.
Until the night I foolishly ask him to tutor me in more than algebra…and he actually says yes.
But the cool morning light shows me how badly I’ve endangered our friendship. And I don’t know if anything will be the same again.
Heartland made me feel so much and to so many extreme ends, I didn’t know what to do with myself.
Dylan Shipley might be a playboy, but that boy is loyal and knows how to love his people. I adore him so much and I relate to his struggle as a college student on the verge of becoming an adult. Dylan is so dang charming and just so endearing that you can’t help but love him.
Chastity is my most favourite character that I have read in a very long time. I love her with all my heart and soul. She is just so so pure that it hearts my heart sometimes. I want to protect her from everything and I KNOW that she is strong and competent enough to face anything herself.
Dylan and Shipley were adorable as friends. But they were beautiful as lovers. I couldn’t have imagined a better HEA for these two amazing characters. I AM IN LOVE!!
