    4.5 ?'s ?There is no magic in a broken heart.? Oh-my-goodness...I knew this would be a heart breaker! I love Jay McLean's stories but this one pulls at all the heart strings. Ava's Mom was in the military and she had a rough go to say the least. It's forever changed al...

    Good God, this was miserable! Really, the title ?Heartache Duet? should?ve clued me in but damn, this was depressing and painful on a level I didn?t expect. Like, imagine scraping your palms. And then rubbing salt into your scrapes. Repeatedly. That?s what reading this felt l...

    Omgggggggggg!!!! This!!!! This is the book I've been dying for. This is the book that would unknowingly satiate all of my relentless cravings for angst and heartache and deliciously brutal teen drama but only momentarily because now I'm left hungry for more. THIS BOOK is precisely why ...

    Heartache and Hope is the first new book released by this author in a couple of years, and I?m happy to say, the author hasn?t lost her touch in the slightest. This contemporary YA romance duet combines my favorite tropes ? it?s a high school sports romance with an emotional...

    "When the world is at its darkest, that's when the magic appears..." Sometimes you finish a book and just stare at the words on the last page, speechless. Heart beating hard like it's about to rip out of your chest. Heartache and Hope did that to me. My emotions are all over the pl...

    I absolutely adored every single page of this book, which isn't a surprise really because this author is the writer of my "all time favorite" mf book "More than Forever". Now as much as I loved this one...and believe me I did...I don't think any couple will ever top Cam and Lucy in...

    What I like about Jay McLean is her ability to write mature teenagers without making it too adult. Ava and Connor are two amazing characters who each have their struggles in life. It?s relatable and at times hauntingly real. Their friendship and blooming love is beautiful written and...

    I should not have loved this, but I did. When I neared the end, I thought, Here we go. This is why I can't do YA. But nope, I was pleasantly surprised. If you're like me and hate YA for the high school drama, you can rest assured, this book doesn't have any. McLean somehow manages ...

    This book here is the reason why I love reading. I get so giddy when I read something that just completely blows me away. Jay McLeans writing is nothing short of incredible and I fell so hard in love with Connor and Ava and became so invested in their story. They were both so devastati...

    You know that Eminem song Without Me - it has the line "Guess Who's Back, Back Again".. well that's how I'm feeling right now. It's been a long time since I got to enjoy new words from Jay McLean and what does she do - she storms back into my life with a story that puts me on my ass. ...
