The Shape of My Heart - Book Review by Voodoo Bride

The Shape of My Heart (2B Trilogy #3)
by Ann Aguirre

What is it about:
Some people wait decades to meet their soul mate. Courtney Kaufman suspects she met hers in high school only to lose him at seventeen. Since then, Courtney's social life has been a series of meaningless encounters, though she's made a few close friends along the way. Especially her roommate Max Cooper, who oozes damaged bad-boy vibes from every pore.

Max knows about feeling lost and trying to move beyond the pain he's been on his own since he was sixteen. Now it's time to find out if he can ever go home again, and Courtney's the only one he trusts to go with him. But the trip to Providence could change everything because the more time he spends with Courtney, the harder it is to reconcile what he wants and what he thinks he deserves.

It started out so simple. One misfit helping another. Now Max will do anything to show Courtney that for every heart that's ever been broken, there's another that can make it complete.

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
I absolutely adored the first two books in this Contemporary New Adult Romance series, so I had to get my hands on the last book.

And I was a bit disappointed I must say.

I liked Max, he's a very nice guy. Courtney however...

Ok, I know this is probably very personal, but I didn't like the way she made jokes and teased Max and others. It felt like she mocked people. Didn't take them serious. It was that attitude that made me dislike her. And when you dislike one half of a romantic couple, it's hard to invest in that romance.

And sure: her attitude probably all has to do with how she was raised, what happened to her and her first love, etc... But that still doesn't mean I have to like it.

If I had liked Courtney just a bit more this might have been a great book. The story is compelling, and the roadblocks on the way to happiness were convincing as was the way Max and Courtney finally got over them.

All in all this was a nice read, but sadly enough I didn't fall in love with it like I did with the other two books. I will most certainly reread those, but this one I most probably won't.

Why should you read it:
It's a nice Contemporary NA Romance.
