Description

Happily ever after is easier said than done....

Sarah Matamoros can’t complain. After immigrating from Mexico when she was nine years old, she’s content with the life she’s made for herself in sunny San Diego. She works hard at her mother’s housecleaning service by day and spends the evenings with her quirky eight-year-old daughter, Grace.

From a very young age, Emory Owen had several concepts drilled into her head. Success is everything. Be the best. Fight your way to the top. Expectations were high in the Owen household and the world was watching. Born into a high society family, Emory never wanted for anything...at least anything money could buy. When she meets Sarah, hired to sort her mother’s home, her sterile life suddenly sparks into color.

But when the emotional logistics of combining two very different worlds proves to be too much, a terrifying turn of events spurs the question: If love exists, can it really find a way?

Good Listen

With the exceptions of some over reliance on cliches and a senseless breakup which seemed quite contrived I liked it. Even with a slight man bad; woman good attitude this was a nice listen. It made six hours of landscaping go by almost quickly. Even for guys I can recommend this book. It was a pleasant experience if you can overlook some of the obvious faults. The four stars were earned.

Sweet Story, Witty Writing & Fantastic Narration

What I loved about Heart Block was the combination of great writing and the way the narrator captured the spirit of the characters. This story was sweet without too much drama which I generally prefer for romance novels. This is definitely a story I will listen to many times.

So Sweet

This book easily became one of my favorites because it was so sweet and simple. Sometimes simple is nice. What I really enjoyed about this book were the main characters. I enjoyed the fact that they came from different backgrounds, fell in-love and followed their hearts. I didn't realize I was such a softy for this kind of romance but I read this book twice in a row, and quickly.

Sweet enough, but too predictable and forced

I wanted to love this story, but the characters and dialogue felt too forced and rushed.

Emory is firmly painted as a womanizing charmer, but somehow fails to notice Sarah is attractive until way after meeting her. She deals with all of her problems by throwing herself into work, yet as soon as her relationship with Sarah is on the rocks, she inexplicably takes off for weeks of aimless vacation and soul-searching. I guess this is supposed to highlight how drastically her feelings for Sarah have turned her life around, but it ends up seeming just plain out-of-character in a lot of instances.

Even the revelations that her cold-unemotional mother apparently loved her to pieces in a warm-emotional way (albeit from afar) falls flat and comes off as a awkward plot mechanic to create internal drama for Emory.

Sarah’s dialogue isn’t helped by the narrators strange accent and slow speech she gives her, so the result is that a capable 30-something mother often sounds like a 5 year old that is naively fumbling her way through conversations with other adults.

Though I found quite a bit I didn’t like, there was also a lot of sweet and easy entertainment in general, that may suit other listeners to a tee. Not every novel needs to be ultra-realistic and surprising, so I would recommend it to somebody wanting a light-hearted, safe lesbian romance.

Such a good story!

The characters were relatable and likable. I laughed out loud and cried at a few points. The narration was also wonderful. Many times narration can take away from an otherwise compelling story, but this one added to it. I highly recommend this title in audible format.

good book bad accent

The story was nice, but the bad accent was distracting at times. Had to relisten to get past the accent

I loved the story

The story itself was really good. there was a few moments the dialog was kinda cheesy but it made me smile so who doesn't like cheese.lol
the narration was great first time EVER there was a Hispanic leading role where the narration was able to portray the actual Acsent correctly. so that alone was amazing.
She dis have issues with the male characters.
I also wish the resolution happened a few chapters sooner so we could enjoy it more.
all in all it was a great book I loves it and will definitely recommend it to everyone.

Classic (and witty) Brayden

I listened to this one over the course of a couple of days while my foot was iced, elevated, and compressed. Happily, 'Heart Block' was the perfect antidote to a completely frustrating and boring two days of "sorry, we're waiting on your X-rays" and made what would have otherwise been a wretched time tolerable.

Here's the basics: you've got Sarah, who is a single mom dealing with the worst moment ever: her kid collapsed in a dead faint, and there's something awry with her heart. Second, you've got Emory, an upper-class daughter from a socialite background who has worked her butt off to be a successful CEO and is a high-powered mover and shaker (never mind that her family never sees her that way). She's also dealing with her own awful moment: her mother has had a stroke, and is brain dead.

When Emory hires someone to clear out her childhood home, it's Sarah who shows up. Sarah's mother runs a family cleaning/organizing business, and the two might get off on the wrong foot, but it's not long before sparks fly. But they're from very different worlds with very different expectations of what they want from life, love, and family.

Brayden brings her game here, and pulls all the heartstrings (no pun intended), especially those of family, mothers-and-daughters especially, and what it means when your feelings aren't lining up with your expectations.

A wonderful audio narrator made this one a truly enjoyable book.
