{FREE DOWNLOAD} ⚡ Hearts in Harmony (Five Senses, #2) À eBook or E-pub free

Hearts in Harmony is the second book in the Five Senses series I really liked it A lot The story is captivating and the characters are strong and well defined.Clay Mathers is a military consultant for the government and a writer in his free time and Pippa Sanders is a therapist and a single mother of twins The moment they meet sparks fly.Clay doesn t do subtle and Pippa doesn t like his attitude What they can t deny is the mutual attraction they feel for each other.I really appreciated the fact that the author didn t focused on the physical aspect Yes, she mentioned how attractive and well built he is but that was just a part of his description and necessary for the scene Instead, she focused on the interactions between the characters and their personalities The lack of useless details was also very much appreciated I hate it when I have to dig my way out through details like what they re drinking, what they re wearing, what type of car they re driving and so on just to get to the story.The supportive characters are the same ones that we met in the first book, Cooking Up Love, maybe a few but not so many as to create confusion or add useless drama to the story.The writing style is good and some of the dialogues are really funny Clay is an expert at putting his foot in his mouth especially around Pippa.All in all, Hearts In Harmony is a really great novel and I recommend it You can read this as a standalone but I think it s better if you start with the first volume It ll be easier to understand everything that s happening and it s really worth reading.4.5 starsHappy Reading I absofreakinlutely loved this book I was on such an emotional roller coaster ride with this one This is not a book for the faint of heart or someone wanting a sweet, happy go lucky romance This one touches on real life possible situations that we in the states find ourselves in today.It brings to the forefront, what occurs and most of us do not pay attention to or think about unless it happens to us directly It was really a wake up call I cried from the beginning and felt so emotionally attached to Pippa and her situation It just tore at the heartstings on what this family had endured and I am so glad that Gemma brought this story to life I truly felt the heart ache, the pain, the devisation, the anger, the hope, and the love that was written in this story Gemma did a fantastic job portraying all of this emotion with words It was so easy to visualize the happenings in this story The dilaogue of the characters drew me in, letting me feel as if I was a part of the story The descriptions to details made me feel as if I was there Thank you Gemma for sharing this story with me and allowing me to go along on the ride It was breath taking, humbling, and thought provoking This is written as a multi pov It is book 2 of the series and can be read as a stand alone But don t I recommend reading book 1 as well Characters from book 1 play a big part in this book.Would I recommend this book Absolutley Be warned, this is not a typical sweet, aaawwww romance.Would I read from this author Absolutely Sassy Beta Reading Reviewwww.facebook.com sassybetareading Pippa Sanders life is sort of stalled I felt bad for her being a military wife having lost her husband That was not the worst part, poor Pippa had her twins after her husband s death She visits his grave regularly for the past six years and nothing is going to change until..Clay Yeah he is a love muffin Being he is in town helping at his Mom s Christmas tree farm while she is recovering from a stroke.They get started with Clay being so obnoxious I actually felt bad for a second then I was laughing so hard He is so direct and no nonsense with Pippa and it is what I thought she needed She is not a well rounded girl so the author creating a character that is just going through the motions meeting someone who tells her basically enough already He tells her things that to her are offensive, but he does what I felt her friends and family should have done a while ago He tells her to start living.There are conversations with Clay s Mom about how he wanted a big family and had asked her to have a brother or sister She explains what happened telling Pippa her story It was so special That woman was a wonderful character.This is filled with a plot of a military group running parallel to the love story I love the cover and I picture Pippa like that Grab this for the sheer love story and enjoy the military part too.CONTENT WARNING Contains strong language, hot sex and a spicy hero. 4 1 2 stars So many of the books I read focus on the emotions and flutters of first loves They are my go to But every now and again, I will read a book that deals with second chances And that is what I found in Hearts in Harmony.Pippa Sanders is a ridiculously strong woman After her husband was killed in combat, she is left alone, 4 months pregnant with twins, no less and completely heartbroken But she doesn t let it break her and she throws her heart and soul into being there for her children Heart and soul, all in, 100%her children are her life Her devotion to her kids is completely admirableand maybe a little bit of a defense mechanism.When an uncomfortable situation at her husband s grave site results in a chance meetingand heated exchangewith Clay Mathers, the beginnings of a crack develops in the wall Pippa has so carefully constructed and maintained And when she realizes that maybe she is feeling things she hasn t felt in a very long time, it completely throws her for a loop.And that s where this book gets fun.I ll admit, Clay irked me at first He is brash and arrogant and completely justobnoxious Very much a speak before he thinks character And I did NOT like him at first In fact, I almost had to stop reading But I kept going and before I realized what had happened, I started to think that maybe he wasn t the % that he first seemed to be.Oddly enough, it was Clay s interaction with Pippa s twins that made me look at him in a different light And normally, I am not a fan of kid characters in the books I read they remind me of child actors in Soaps BUTthat s just me and the fact that I found myself enjoying the scenes with the twins was a pleasant surprise I promise that I m not an absolute ogre like I seem to be in the previous paragraph I really do like children All in all, I am very happy that I didn t stop reading and that I that I didn t let my initial impression of Clay deter me from their story I guess where I m going with this is that second chances can be pretty awesome And if you are in the mood for a fun, spicy read this summer, add Hearts in Harmony to your to read list This review can also be found on my blog, Flutters and Flails 4 magical tree stars I really enjoyed this one This is book 2 in the Five Senses series, but book 1 does not have to be read to understand this story It is a spin off with secondary characters from book 1 We are introduced to Pippa as she is singing at a fallen soldiers funeral, where she meets the guy who gives her sparks, Clay But she also meets a dangerous man named Dewey Pippa is a widow with a set of twins that were not born yet when their father died So for 6 years she s been a single mother She dated around a little bit but nothing serious So upon meeting Clay and being so attracted to him threw her off kilter One thing I kept laughing about was Pippa wouldn t cuss around her children Some of the stuff she said waswell just plain funny When he turned around to face her, she started guiltily Oh fiddle, he d caught her staring at his butt See That is hilarious to me This book had everything I look for in a story.AngstHot SexWitty CharactersSuspensefulLikable CharactersI liked how she wrote in details about the protesters at the soldiers funerals While in college we had a professor who showed us films about the Westboro Baptist Church and those people are crazy And I think Gemma wrote those characters well So if your looking for a story with a twist that is funny and sweet this is the book for you Pippa has her hands full raising two six year olds on her own They are her entire world until a chance meeting with Clay And their chemistry is HOT I loved the the hero isn t perfect He s rough around the edges with a sailor s mouth and an attitude to match It would take a strong woman to take on his antics, but throughout the story, Pip brings out the best in this rough and tumble hero And stride for stride, she is every bit as tough as him She doesn t wait for a man to save her, and Clay wouldn t presume, which is awesome More female leads could take a lesson or two from Pippa Clay s emotional growth throughout the book was one of my favorite parts about their love story Pippa and the kids break his calloused heart open a little with each encounter, and the way Brocato handles the slow sizzle of their romance is perfect.Brocato s words are like a song, musical, drawing the reader into the story until you are right there with the characters I teared up in several spots because she has this way of writing sentimentally without manipulating the reader A difficult balance, and Brocato walks the line effortlessly.I loved the first book in this series, Cooking Up Love, and I ve been looking forward to reading Hearts in Harmony in hopes that it would be as good as the first, and it didn t disappoint Looking forward to books in this series I m hoping Sam will get his day.
