Review: My Heart for Yours by Stephanie Campbell and Jolene Perry


For Tobin and Delia, everything was always equal.

A bargain, a trade, a deal to be struck.

A kiss for a kiss.
Your shirt for mine.
Break my heart, I’ll break yours.

Their disastrous split was no different. Tobin’s spent the last year pretending Delia never existed, and Delia’s been in D.C., pretending to be anything but the country girl that she is.

When tragedy brings her back to town, Tobin and Delia realize that time apart hasn’t healed either one of them. But staying away from each other is harder than they imagined, especially in small town Louisiana, and old feelings are quickly brought back to the surface.

In the mess they’ve created, is there anything to be salvaged of a love that they both thought would be forever? ~Goodreads blurb

Other than paying this book vague praises like I LOVED IT and AMAZING and OMG BATMAN I am really stumped at how to review it.

My Heart for Yours is powerful but easy to read. It’s heavy but fun. It’s controversial but not preachy.

Anything I tell you will give away something that you must discover on your own. This book is a journey to heal old wounds, come to terms with what life has given us and to find the strength to stand on your own.

I loved how I never really knew who to blame; I never really knew who the ‘bad guy’ was or who was the one who really screwed it all up.

I had the plot figured all out. I knew what was going on. I thought it would be predictable. I was right, but in my assumptions I took a major wrong turn. I was still surprised by how things happened.

What this book taught me is that people are not always what they seem; That nothing in life is cut and dry or black and white.

It taught me that even when I know where life is going I have no idea how it’s going to get there.

And when I finished crying and started laughing, I threatened to kiss the authors…

I think they took it well ;)

  1. Your threat seemed a bit empty – you being up in Whitehorse and all ;-D
    Seriously, thanks!
    So glad you liked.
    We really did have SO much fun writing that one.

    The last two indie books i read and loved are Flat Out Love and Easy. Those were both a lot of fun.

  2. Thanks for the review. Like I said on Twitter, I wasn’t a huge fan of Perry’s last book–it was too whiny–but this sounds great. I’ll have to pick it up.

    • Fair enough! This one was angst-y, but it’s appropriate. If you read it you’ll see why. I am fairly sensitive to ‘whine’ and I didn’t get that from this. Hope you enjoy it!
