Standalone Contemporary Romance.
The Heart of Him by Katie Fox
Sixteen months ago, Cassidy Porter lost the love of her life.
Every day since has been a battle to carry on, but despite what her mother and sister say, she’s making progress—or is she?
When she receives an invitation to attend a banquet in honor of the organ donors and their recipients, she has every reason to guard what remains of her shattered heart.
Maybe this will be the closure she needs to finally mend its pieces.
For the last twenty-eight years, Samuel Copeland has been afraid to live.
Diagnosed with a genetic heart condition, he knows better than anyone that second chances don’t come along often. Since his transplant, he spends his days in the local coffee shop, watching and observing, trying to make sense of all he’s been given.
Grateful doesn’t begin to describe it.
When the opportunity to meet the person who was closest to his selfless donor presents itself—a chance to say thank you for saving him—he takes it.
What’s the worst that can happen?
Brought together by fate—or perhaps, something else entirely—the two form an unexpected bond, one that has them both asking: can two hearts be destined only to beat for each other?

Review by Bubbles The Book Pimp
Cassie is broken, her heart shattered and smashed to pieces 16 months earlier following the death of her boyfriend Adam… her ‘Forever Always’ stolen away and the promise of the future gone with it leaving her unable to cope with life without him.
Heart broken at her loss she is barely functioning, her sisters constant concern for her is wearing her down…. hoping to get some form of closure by attending an organ donation event and meeting the recipient of Adams heart might be a step in the right direction if she can only find her way there through the tears.
Sam grew up knowing what it was like to have his future taken away from him…seeing his mother pass from heart failure as a child changed his world… to protect himself from further heart ache he has always kept himself distant…after receiving a donor heart his future has so many possibilities and trying to feel worthy of them is harder than he could possibly believe…. especially when he meets his donors family…Cassie.
Together they can mend each other’s broken pieces.
This book was a first read by this author for me,
A beautiful story written with such care and emotion..I was blown away.
I loved the originality and creativity and read it all in one sitting. I was captivated by Cassie and Sam’s story and was waiting for the big reveal… and my lord it was a whopper that had me clinging to me seat and howling with tears.
I adored Sam, his situation and emotions were so brutally real and honest. I could practically feel his loneliness and dismay when he first met Cassie and realised who she was.
Cassie was hard for me, not because she was a badly written or unbelievable character…but because she was such a well written believable one…her grief was heart breaking…grief is a horrible soul destroying thing and kudos to the author for describing and relating it with such respect, care and attention.
Only those that have truly lived with the loss of a love one can convey how damaging grief is to those who are ‘left behind’. I cried ugly ugly tears by the bucketful.. and a don’t retreat a single tear.
Such a wonderful story that deserves to be read. If you enjoy an emotion packed read then this my friend is the book for you! Just remember tissues and maybe some chocolate 🖤🖤🖤
