What happened to last week? Why were there no postings on Novel Reaction? Where did I go? Sometimes life happens and lately life seems to be happening a little more. I just finished my last final E-V-E-R in law school (which means I have been filling out tons of paperwork and getting everything lined up so I can take the Bar in July), I have been planning and getting ready for the family that is coming in to celebrate my graduation with me, and I am moving in a week and a half into a house I just purchased but has been in the process of getting remodeled for the last two months (which required all kinds of decisions I didn’t anticipate from flooring to which light switches turn on which lights). So to all the readers of Novel Reaction I just say sorry, sometimes life happens. I would like to say this won’t happen again but with the Bar looming on the horizon it is possible that I won’t be as regular in the postings for the next couple of months but just bear with me and come August we will be alive and kicking again. Don’t worry, I am not stopping my reading of great (and not so great) books and I plan on sharing them with all of you but it might not be as regular as I have been. So thanks in advance for your patience and if anyone would like to guest post during this crazy time, I would love to have you share with us here. 🙂
Jeremy “JB” Edwards is a man from a big family in Hearts Communion by Marianne Evans. He would like his own family too, but hasn’t found the right woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with. When his nephew becomes ill while at daycare, JB runs to get him and finds himself running into the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen.
Monica Kettelski runs a daycare business. She loves being around little kids and gets the chance to take care of them every day. One of Monica’s “kids” becomes sick and his uncle is on his way to pick him up. Monica doesn’t know she’s about to meet the man her dreams.
As JB starts falling head over heals for Monica and the fact he’d like to have a family with her, he finds her placing a wall up around her heart. He doesn’t know what he’s done to cause this, but she won’t talk to him about it. Can JB get Monica to let down the wall and tell him what she’s keeping locked away, or will she just push him away?
Marianne Evens did such a great job in writing Hearts Communion. I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to everyone. It is a clean romance book and very fun to read. Hearts Communion is a must read for those who love good love stories.

**I received a copy of this book from the publisher but was not required to provide a review and it did not impact my review in any way.
“I do not believe that I am made of the stuff which constitutes heroes, because, in all of the hundreds of instances that my voluntary acts have placed me face to face with death, I cannot recall a single one where any alternative step to that I took occurred to me until many hours later. My mind is evidently so constituted that I am subconsciously forced into the path of duty without recourse to tiresome mental processes. however that may be, I have never regretted that cowardice is not optional with me. ”
“Fear is a relative term and so I can only measure my feelings at that time by what I had experienced in previous positions of danger and by those that I have passed through since; but I can say without shame that if the sensations I endured during the next few minutes were fear, then may God help the coward, for cowardice is of a surety its own punishment. ”
“Few western wonders are more inspiring than the beauties of an Arizona moonlit landscape; the silvered mountains in the distance, the strange lights and shadows upon hog back and arroyo, and the grotesque details of the stiff, yet beautiful cacti form a picture at once enchanting and inspiring; as though one were catching for the first time a glimpse of some dead and forgotten world, so different is it from the aspect of any other spot upon our earth. ”
–A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs
