Review: Not Just My Heart

Not Just My Heart

Second Chance Romance

by Em Taylor

Six years ago, I made the stupidest mistake of my life. 

I told Lacey Kendrick, I wanted to break up.

So she kicked me out her car, told me to move my stuff out her flat, and blocked me on her phone.

And the stupid thing is. I hadn’t realised what a monumental idiot I’d been until I saw her, after all this time, in a pub in Glasgow.

The chemistry was still there. I could still make her laugh, blush, want me.

But boy, did she still hold a grudge. I was going to have to work to win her round. Lacey was worth it though. That smile. That body. The way she responded to my touch.I was soon to find out, however, that winning her over again would be the easy part. I had a secret weapon when it came to her … in my boxers.

It was becoming patently obvious, however, that six years ago it was not just Lacey’s heart I had broken when I’d walked away from our relationship.



5 out of 5

Not Just My Heart is steamy. There might be a chill in the air, but this book will heat you right up. Lacey and Rory definitely have a spark between them, sometimes it’s passion, sometimes it’s snark. I absolutely LOVED Lacey (and I have to admit I fell a little for Rory too). If you’re looking for a second-chance steamy romance with a lot of sass, you’re going to want to grab this!

*This song was the inspiration for the book. It describes taking your other half home to meet your parents for the first time and mum loving them immediately while dad pretends to hate him while actually liking him. Meanwhile the younger sibling  annoys them with lots of questions. But if they break up, more hearts will be broken than just the singer’s. So I wondered what would happen if that couple got back together and the ramifications for the family

**Just because the book was written during lockdown and this song gave me hope throughout that life would get better

About the Author

Hi. My name is Em Taylor. I  live in Glasgow in Scotland. I got into writing in 2011 when I started writing Star Trek Voyager Fan Fiction under the pen name Libby Kim. I then turned to writing my own stories, originally under the pen name Krystal Brookes. When I started writing Regency romances, I decided to do it under my own name. Since then I have written different sub-genres of romance- mainly contemporary, Regency, and vampire. Some of my own favourite authors are Vi Keeland, Penelope Ward, Lauren Blakely,  Lynsay Sands, Tessa Dare, Samantha Holt, Em Petrova, Molly Harper, JF Holland, Mary Balogh.

When I’m not writing, I work as a care assistant with people who have acquired brain injuries. The main passion in my free time is attending country music concerts, although that’s not possible at present. So I sing along loudly in my car.   I hope you enjoy Not Just my Heart which was inspired by a country music song called More Hearts than Mine by the uber-talented Ingrid Andress.
