Happy holiday hump day everyone! We’re sort of mid-way through the month and mid-way through the week and depending on where you are in the country, having some strange weather (of course assuming you live in the US and assuming you celebrate the holidays – otherwise ignore my chattering). It seems like a perfect time for an upbeat romantic book and a nice giveaway, right? As part of Kismet’s blog tour for Mia’s Heart, I had the chance to read it and after my review, there’s a form to enter a tour-long giveaway to win a signed copy of the book.

My name is Mia Giannis.
I am seventeen years old.
I live in Valese, Caberra.
This has become my mantra and my lifeline, having recently lost my memory due to a scary natural disaster.
Yeah. I have amnesia. Messed up, right?
You don’t know the half of it.
Not remembering anything has turned my world upside down. My parents try their hardest to “remind” me of who I was, but it doesn’t feel right. Or, if what they’re saying is true and that really was me, I’m not sure I like that person very much.
And then there’s my love life. Apparently, Gavin Ariastasis is my oldest and best friend in the world. Also, apparently, we’ve never dated. But now, noticing him for what feels like the first time, he’s making my heart do somersaults. He knows me inside and out—the real me. Plus, he’s sexy and charming as hell. Sounds perfect, right?
But then… there’s the new guy. Quinn McKeyen – tall, gorgeous and deliciously American. His mischievous grin and slow Midwestern drawl turn my insides to mush in two seconds flat making me question who I really am and what I really want.
Seriously. What am I supposed to do with all that?! I feel torn between them, but I barely even know who I am, let alone what I want.
I just hope my indecisive heart will clue me in. And sooner rather than later…before I lose what little of my mind that I have left.
Is it a good or bad thing that when you sit down to write a review, all you initially can think of is, “that was so cute and fun!” And after that…”that was just the sweetest, most fun and adorable thing,” is all that comes to you? Panic time. Even my thesaurus isn’t going to help with this one. Courtney Cole, you’ve done the nearly unforgiveable – made me have to think really, really hard for hours (the pain) to write a review.
