Heart Bones

- Colleen Hoover

Goodreads Book Blurb:

Life and a dismal last name are the only two things Beyah Grim’s parents ever gave her. After carving her path all on her own, Beyah is well on her way to bigger and better things, thanks to no one but herself.

With only two short months separating her from the future she’s built and the past she desperately wants to leave behind, an unexpected death leaves Beyah with no place to go during the interim. Forced to reach out to her last resort, Beyah has to spend the remainder of her summer on a peninsula in Texas with a father she barely knows. Beyah’s plan is to keep her head down and let the summer slip by seamlessly, but her new neighbor Samson throws a wrench in that plan.

Samson and Beyah have nothing in common on the surface.

She comes from a life of poverty and neglect; he comes from a family of wealth and privilege. But one thing they do have in common is that they’re both drawn to sad things. Which means they’re drawn to each other. With an almost immediate connection too intense for them to continue denying, Beyah and Samson agree to stay in the shallow end of a summer fling. What Beyah doesn’t realize is that a rip current is coming, and it’s about to drag her heart out to sea.


My Review:

waste of time:
I didn’t like anything about Heart Bones.

Beyah is overly judgmental because of how judged she has been in her past. Fair; she has not had an easy life, and it’s easier to lash out and push others away before you’re excluded. It doesn’t make her likeable, though. There’s something so obviously off about Samson from the beginning. Someone who says they don’t want to answer your questions until the end of your relationship because it would end the relationship is not someone you should continue to date.

Beyah’s commitment to Samson after a summer fling throughout which he repeatedly lied to her is an example of the damage the trauma of her upbringing had on her. She should’ve used her time in college to find someone who didn’t need to lie to her to be with her. She can still become a lawyer and help Samson, but she shouldn’t be with him.
Don’t worry, though. HEAs all around because after spending four years in prison, you’re definitely in the right headspace to pick up with a girl you spent a month with being entirely untruthful. Especially since you didn’t speak once the entire time you were locked up. Solid foundation right there.
This always happens with CoHo. I start with one rating, and then after writing down all the nonsense, I’m ready to drop a star. So we’re down to one now because none of this should’ve happened, and in the real world, it wouldn’t – or at least it wouldn’t end well.
