Book Description: 

Late one night Nicki Johnson plays with emotional fire and Googles her high school love, only to find his name splashed across the British gossip columns. Back in his native England, Adam Kincaid is successful and dating a woman from an aristocratic family like his own.

With a career in politics, Nicki’s no slouch, but she knows Adam is living a world away from her life. Yet there was a time he was no farther than the next locker.

Nicki will never forget their year together in high school—the year of her sister’s death, the year her mother checked out. 

Adam helped Nicki through suffocating grief, and she led him through a coming of age.

Was it just high school, or was it something more?


My Review

5 of 5 First True Love

Beside Your Heart is such an AMAZING read! I have never read a story that brought me to tears one minute and then laughter another. I mean Mary has such a way with words and descriptions that I wanted more no I needed more and I could not put this book down. I was supposed to be doing a research paper when I read this book and I put it down so I could read.

Imagine your in high school and your life is going along great until your sister dies. Grief has struck your family hard and your mother checks out and leaves you to grieve alone. What do you do? Well Nicki found Adam and together Adam helped her through the worse year of her life. They became best friends and more. The love they shared is a rare love that only comes once in a lifetime. But as things happen in high school Adam moved on and left Nicki. She was devastated but she is a survivor so she did what anyone with a broken heart does she moved on. But the heart wants what the heart wants and there is no denying it she will always want Adam and thinks of him often.

So one day while at campaign head quarters she sees his name and she decides to google him. What she finds is his name plastered all over the British tabloids. He is dating an aristocrat's daughter. Nicki's heart just breaks some more even though she has not seen him in forever. She still loves him and we get to see through her memories and flashbacks what happened that year they spend together. Nicki and Adam have something special and through the memories and flashbacks we get to see the mistakes that were made and the heart ache Nicki endures. We get to see what happens when you never forget your first love. The heart knows what it wants and Nicki's heart wants Adam. Will they get a HEA?
