Review: Tied Up In Heartstrings
Publication Date: November 15, 2013

Series: Book 1 
Rating: 5 Stars 

Official Blurb: Tragedy ripped the security from her life. Left a single mother, Alexis's fear of loss insulates her from the rest of the world. Her best friends from college and close family are the only people she keeps close. 

A man from her past has always been in love with Alexis. He’s never met anyone that measures up to her. Garrett is a musician, who never really imagined he’d have the fame and fortune that he's found. But, even with that, what he's always wanted is out of reach... or is it? 

When Garrett and Alexis meet up by chance a relationship begins. Neither expected what happens. She can’t be sure she’s ready for the complications a relationship brings. He will have to work overtime to win her heart without any assurances it will be successful. 

Alexis is learning about life without Jed, and is feeling more secure with parenting on her own. Garrett appreciates his fans and is enjoying his life on the road but misses having a private life. The lives they have built separately leave little room for a budding relationship, but their hearts won’t take that into consideration. 

Will the cards they’ve been dealt get in the way of a love that is meant to be? Is love enough to overcome loss and heartbreak? Can they accept all that the other is, without feeling like they are living in the shadow of their former lives?

 This was my first book by Felicia and I was sucked in right from the beginning. This book is very emotional and left me in tears quite a few times but it’s also very sweet and romantic. Alexis has lost her husband in a terrible accident and it left her a single mother. She is struggling everyday just to put a smile on her face. She has her close friends and her brother but Alexis is still stuck in the world of loss and hurt.

Garrett is now a famous musician but has struggled to make it where he is. Alexis and Garrett lost touch over the years but were once close in college and Garrett has always had a soft spot for Alexis. When he reconnects with Alexis, he knows things will never be the same and he can’t let her go.

Alexis fights Garrett tooth and nail throughout this book. But I could understand why she did it. After suffering a great loss like that it’s hard for her to just pick up and move on. She has her daughter to be worried about now. But Garrett doesn’t give up and makes Alexis see his true feelings. This is a story of loss, pain, suffering, overcoming, finding oneself, and true love. Don’t miss out on this amazing story!! I loved every minute!
