A Heart So Broken

Still wondering if you should buy a copy of A Heart So Broken for the reader on your Christmas list? Here’s a little sneak peak of one of my favorite scenes from the book where Jenna confronts Jared, her old bad boy boyfriend: “I said your coming with me,” he said, grabbing my arm again. In that moment, instinct took over. In one fluid movement, I’d dodged his grasp and threw a right hook that connected with the bones in his nose.

There are a few more available in this same series. My oldest daughter...

How many times do we go through the same life lessons. We see or are seen for our true potential only to have hecklers from the crowd shoot us down.
