I should have freaking known.
How dense can one girl be?
If it’s too good to be true, then it is.
If he’s too nice, smiles too perfectly, says all the right things, then he probably isn’t prince charming. Nope. Of course he’d be freaking married. And I didn’t see it.
So here I am, in a city that I hate doing a shoot I don’t want to do.
Suck it up, Jolene.
That’s what I have to keep telling myself.
It’s time to swear of smooth talking men and just focus on the only true loves in my life: photography and Dozer, my dog.
Stupid Hearts was just the dose of sexy fun I needed! Jolene is a vivacious personality, unafraid to go after what she wants. She doesn’t do attachments and she prefers it that way until her free spirit finds her in a compromising situation. Returning to her regularly scheduled life as a photographer, she agrees to do a photo shoot, which brings her up close and personal with a familiar face. I absolutely loved this twist in the story and I felt a little giddy when I realized who had just come crashing back into Joey’s life. Finn was a fantastic character, enjoying his life and career when he becomes completely enraptured by Joey. Kristen Hope Mazzola did an incredible job crafting the chemistry between these two. From the moment they meet until the very last page the lust just radiates off of this couple. Their witty banter, sexy flirting, and sizzling hot moments had me permanently hooked.
Novellas are tricky given their limited length, but Kristen Hope Mazzola managed to tell Jolene and Finn’s story without making me feel as though I missed something. Both of them showed some character growth, and their relationship, while quick, was not rushed. Stupid Hearts felt like a new side of Kristen’s writing, definitely more romantic comedy than angst-filled love story. I quickly found myself enchanted by the humor, dialogue, and colorful characters that brought this story to life. Stupid Hearts is a short and easy read that will make you laugh and give you those familiar tingles that come along with unexpected love. This story was completely charming and unquestionably entertaining. Kristen has a voice that is young, fun, and fresh bringing a vibrancy and fearlessness to her writing that makes her story so addicting.

I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time “day job” and by night I am author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.
Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know.
