    A sweet romanceThis is a sweet story that is romantic and easy to read. Each sentence flowed together. I could easily relate to the conflict that was going on in Cassidy's heart. It has the perfect amount of romance, conflict, humor and drama. It was hard putting this book down. That is extremely good considering I am not a romantic type. I am looking forward to more books by this author. I was given a ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Unlike most young women, Cassidy Keane has to choose between two great guys who both apparently love her. Both men are handsome, have promising careers ahead of them, and both fill her not only with the warm fuzzies, but with genuine stirrings of passion and sensuality. The rest of us should only have such a problem! But seriously, the question is does one young man have a card up his sleeve or some fatal flaw? Does one intend to deceive her or let her down in some humiliating way when she desperately needs him? The Fearful Heart is a hilarious romance based on a seemingly symmetrical love triangle with weird and wonderful minor characters alongside the major players--Cassidy's roommate Billie and Cassidy's two boyfriends' other girlfriends, not to mention Cassidy's boyfriends' friends and families.The characters in this college setting are unlike young people I've known in my own life, but they ring true, and I find the dialogue sharp and clever! Such snarky characters, such barbs coming out of their mouths--a brilliant evocation of young people today! And the sweet romance that subtly develops beneath the brash rivalry draws me deeply into the story. What starts out as a typical college romance with crushes, dating, flirtation, necking, and general messing around turns into a spooky ghost story at one point with criminal activity and real evil lurking behind the scenes. The suspense in this story is powerful, the humor contagious, and the characters irresistible. The reader can't wait to find out which man Cassidy will ultimately wind up with and which hearts will be broken. Can there possibly be a happy ending? I leave it up to you, dear reader, to find out.

    "The Fearful Heart" by Cherry Christiansen is my first read by this author. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this story and it will not be my last read from her.We have childhood friends Cassidy and Tristan have been through both good and bad times together. Tristan seems to always be there for her when she breaks up with a guy who broke her heart. Now, they're in different colleges and have somewhat different lives. Cassidy is involved with a guy from her school, and Tristan is involved with a woman from his school. What happens when they get together during a rival football game is finding out that maybe their friendship is more than being childhood friends. This was one of those books that I read straight through because I couldn't it down. It flows well and there is enough mystery and romance to keep the reader enthralled. There is more to this story but without giving away what happens, and there is much more than what I wrote above, you should read it yourself. It isn't just a regular romance novel, and is good for even young adults.

    A Fearful Heart was a sweet romance that pulled at my heart strings. Cassidy’s story captivated me from the beginning because of her strong faith despite the tragedy she went through as a teenager and her relationship with her childhood friend Tristan. The love triangle kept me guessing who she would end up with, but I have to admit, I was rooting for Tristan throughout the story because of his caring heart and devotion to Cassidy, even when she kept pushing him away. I liked Cassidy’s crazy roommate, Billie and the comedy that she brought to the scenes as well. One part I didn’t care for was a descriptive make-out scene in Cassidy’s dorm room. They didn’t have sex, but I still felt that they went a little too far for a dating couple. Other than that, I really enjoyed this story. The ending was very sweet and made me want to read more about the characters. I’m hoping there will be a sequel!

    I really enjoyed this book. I didn't want to put it down. I loved the interaction between the characters. There were twists and turns that I didn't really expect. Cassidy is in her final semester of college and has been trying to forget her childhood friend, Tristan. She is scared of the feelings that she has for him and doesn't want to mess things up. A storm blows through campus and she meets Keefe. They instantly feel an electricity and it't NOT the storm. They try to explore their relationship to see where it last when Tristan gets thrown right next to her again. The emotions in this book are fantastic. Will Cassidy finally be able to move on or does Tristan hold tightly to her heart and soul? I recommend this book, it is such a sweet romance.

    The Fearful Heart is a gentle romance, dealing with a young woman's reluctance to accept the love of her childhood friend. Tristan has always been there for Cassidy, through triumphs and tragedies. But what happens when friendship becomes more than that? Cassidy is afraid to risk finding out. Ms Christensen takes us through her final year of college, when suddenly the campus stud starts to pay attention to her, her career is in sight - and the guy who was always there for her suddenly appears with someone else. I enjoyed reading this story and hope there are more to come!

    This was one of those stories that I really wanted to like. There was so much promise in the synopsis, and it started off so well. Plus - to be honest - there was nothing really wrong with the author's writing style. The main problems that I had with this novel are as follows; to start with - the characters were very juvenile sounding and not very well developed. In fact, the majority of the time I found myself thinking they sounded more like high school students than college students. It was very unrealistic for the age group. For example, Cassidy and her roommate spend 98% of the book calling someone else a "shedevil", and the interactions not only between them, but between other characters as well just did not make sense to the story. I also found the relationships to be really skewed, the author spent a lot of time on relationships that in the end, really didn't matter to the plot at all. I would have LOVED to have seen more of the relationship between Cassidy and Tristian. Yes, I understand they have a deep history of being childhood friends, but not only do we not get to see a whole lot of that, but we get a very limited glimpse into their lives as "adults" as well. The entire time I was reading this, I kept waiting for more. More depth, more of a plot-line, but sadly I was left wanting. Overall, I'm sure there is an audience for this novel - those that like quick and sweet (lots of kissing, but no sex) novels. It just wasn't for me. DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. This has not affected my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.

    The Fearful Heart was stylistically well-written and entertaining. I really wanted to love it, but there were several things I simply could not ignore. The most significant was that there was so little time devoted to Tristan and so much time devoted to Keefe. I really got to like Keefe, and his sudden transformation from dream-come-true to deceitful antagonist was unsettling. Second, Ava’s villainy was too caricature, and her redemption a case of too-little-too-late. And finally, the behaviors of the characters were often unrealistic for their age group. I am torn in giving this review, because there is a marked dichotomy in my mind between these aspects which I did not care for and the fact that The Fearful Heart is well-written and entertaining. I invite readers to give it a try and decide for themselves.VeronicaReviewer for Coffee Time Romance & MoreOfficial Review @ Coffee Time Romance & More

    Cassidy has a crazy roommate named Billie, a rival and bully across the hall named Ava, and a best friend named Tristan. She’s always been close to Tristan. He’s been there for her since their childhood, and she’s unwilling to risk their friendship and suggest that they go further. She’d rather have him as a friend than not at all. Then one stormy morning she meets Keefe. She starts a relationship with him, even though Tristan is constantly popping in and out and causing her emotions to go crazy. Ava is obviously trying to get Keefe’s attention as is half of the female population of her school. And why not, he’s handsome and a doctor in training and on top of that, he’s very romantic and sweet. Strange things start to happen at the dorms when things start coming up missing and there’s a visit with a ghost. It all comes to a head when Cassidy confronts...( Read rest of the review after the link.

    This is a very sweet book, one that I would definitely recommend to the young adult or new adult audience. The writing was good, even though the sudden viewpoint changes that happened were a bit disconcerting at times. The biggest problem I had was the juvenile behavior of the main characters. It seemed they had the maturity of high school students rather than the kind of behavior I would expect from adults graduating from college. I think this is an author that has promise.You can see my full review at More Than a Review dot com where I rate the level of sex, violence, language and drug/alcohol use in books.
