    I must say, I’m often not a huge fan of contemporary romance. I find that modern romances sometimes glorify bad boys who in real life are best left alone, and that heroines can be spineless, simpering girly girls—which is why I was so blown away by Donna’s new book, because that is definitely NOT the case here. Donna’s characters are real people, with real pasts and problems, and the romance is entwined around the real-world issues of racism and a need to return to the simple pleasures of life, I must say, I’m often not a huge fan of contemporary romance. I find that modern romances sometimes glorify bad boys who in real life are best left alone, and that heroines can be spineless, simpering girly girls—which is why I was so blown away by Donna’s new book, because that is definitely NOT the case here. Donna’s characters are real people, with real pasts and problems, and the romance is entwined around the real-world issues of racism and a need to return to the simple pleasures of life, moving away from consumerism and towards a lifestyle in tune with the earth. Tyne, our heroine, is a single mother with a haunted past. When her son becomes a teenager, the shadows of his lonely upbringing come to the fore and he falls in with the wrong crowd, and the only man who can help him is his father: a Native American lawyer named Lucas Silver Hawk. A man who, as far as Tyne knows, was unaware his son even existed until she turned up asking for his help. As father, son, and mother rediscover each other, they also find themselves. Fasano cleverly weaves in Native American stories and folklore with the wonderful character of Uncle Jasper, and doesn’t shy away from Tyne and Lucas’s emotional issues. On the whole, I really enjoyed this read. It was smooth, well-written and with characters you could really care about and a HEA that had me cheering. Plus, it had a really heart-warming message of knowing who you are and where you belong.

Lucas Silver Hawk, Tyne Whitlock, and their son Zach are faced with dealing with the consequences of their choices, as the past meets the present, when Tyne is forced to return to the Indian community where the father of her child was raised. Tyne’s son Zach has gotten into serious trouble with the law, and she realizes that his upbringing with her as a single parent has not been enough. Some interesting twists and turns will keep you reading until the end, wanting to understand the actual truth about the past. Each character in this story is well developed and realistic, and the reasoning behind the choices made by the hero and heroine while they were teens is not only laid out beautifully but is absolutely believable. This is not just an emotional story about star-crossed lovers and second chance romance, it’s all about accepting the past for what it was and being able to move forward. This outstanding story was a USA TODAY BESTSELLER!! I give it 5 stars!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    3 1/2 stars. I loved the plot & premise of this story. I could not put this book down, but the actual writing felt a bit flat to me. I felt myself constantly reaching and looking for, well, more. More description, more linear action, something unexpected... Just more. Don't mistake me, this is first rate chick lit . But I found myself constantly wishing that I were reading this plot, with these characters in some other author's voice. That even sounds a bit harsh to me , but it is because I enjoy 3 1/2 stars.

Tyne Whitlock is a single mom who runs a business with partners, she has always made a real effort at juggling parenthood and work. Up until recently, everything was running smoothly, but then her 15-year old son, Zach, was picked up by police for vandalism, and was facing some potentially serious consequences. Tyne has no choice, she has to call in help from someone she hasn't seen or spoken to in 16 years, Lucas Silver Hawk, hotshot attorney .........and Zach's father. To say Lucas was surprised to see Tyne in his office first thing Monday morning, would be an understatement, but to hear that he was the father of a teenage boy completely stunned him. He pushes any recriminations and questions to the back, while he deals with the immediate issue of his son's predicament. On Lucas' suggestion, the judge grants an order, sending Zachary to return with his father to Wikweko, where Lucas was raised among his Native American community, for one month. Tyne left neighbouring Oak Mills, and her parents, 16 years ago under difficult circumstances. They had disapproved of her relationship with Lucas and had not been supportive of her choices regarding her pregnancy. She does not like the idea of Zach returning to that area, but she has no choice. She decides to arrange time off and come along. While in Wikweko, Zach has an opportunity to meet and spend time with Lucas' uncle Jasper, who takes the boy under his wing and teaches him of his heritage and of the value of honour and responsibility. Lucas and Tyne unravel some of the confusion and misconception that exists between them, they work to answer some old and new questions and revisit some familiar places.........and feelings. Only to find some things never changed at all. **** A wonderful, multi-layered read! Great storyline.....on the surface a familiar theme, but with certain twists to give it that much more depth and human interest. And of course, very well written. I loved the coming-of-age story of Zach, although I feel there could have been a bit more exploration. But the combination of the angry young boy and the stoic older native man works very well. Lucas was also an interesting character study, he had chased after the material aspects of life, measuring success in tangibles instead of quality of person and in the process had forgotten his family, his heritage, his pride, and his sense of self. Tyne had been bolstering herself against her insecurity over her choices for 16 years, to have those brittle shells crumbling down suddenly and she has to learn to feel and deal with the depth of her emotions. And of course....this is a book of second chances......for everyone. *ARC courtesy of NetGalley in return for an honest review*

The whole book is mostly about all the relationships that went bad due to the decisions people made, but everyone involved comes to terms & can work out differences. Because Zach is half Lenape Indian, (which bugged me because his dad is half, and his mom is white, making him actually 1/4 Lenape... just a weird quirk with the wrong info in the book) Tyne's parents wanted her baby gone. They were racist, but couldn't see that they were... Tyne forgave them pretty quickly when she finally saw them... They'd have to grovel more for me, but to each his own... I LOVED this book... what more could I say! I was up all night reading it & finally went to sleep at 4 am!! I could not put it down. Now I'm tired & may have several typos!!

I also loved how something good came from Zach getting into trouble for not only him but for Tyne and Lucas as well. Lucas saw that he needed to make changes in his life as a result of being back in Wikweko and from being around his Uncle, Tyne and Zach. Tyne had also seen things that needed changing in her life as well. It seemed like they were all just going about their lives but not truly living or understanding what was really important. I loved the ending and the secondary story with Lucas and his mom. So good!! I am looking forward to reading more from Donna. **ARC obtained per NetGalley. Thanks :)

    Reclaim My Heart. Donna Fasano. Arc supplied by Netgalley. Among all the high school/university romances around its good to find one about older people. Sometimes you'd think from what's available that anyone over 25-30 isn't interested in sex and love from the number of books around, ( and God help us poor over 50's – we're pretty clearly past it !!) Its one of the reasons I so loved the This Man series – its fantastic writing of course but Jesse is – gasp – 38!!! So, the premise that Tyne had a Reclaim My Heart. Donna Fasano. Arc supplied by Netgalley. Among all the high school/university romances around its good to find one about older people. Sometimes you'd think from what's available that anyone over 25-30 isn't interested in sex and love from the number of books around, ( and God help us poor over 50's – we're pretty clearly past it !!) Its one of the reasons I so loved the This Man series – its fantastic writing of course but Jesse is – gasp – 38!!! So, the premise that Tyne had a sixteen year old son so thus was older, (hurrah) made this book a must read for me. I'm glad as it offers much more than just a quick hot romance, and covers all sorts of conventional stigmas, unmarried mothers, racial discrimination, and religious bigotry. Its not done in a preaching manner though, but one where its simply part of the story and everyday life. That's how life is for most of us, not some sweet fluffy kittens and hearts rose tinted paradise but a real world where people can be cruel and vindictive. Anyway – the people. Tyne is great, struggled to do the right thing, filled with guilt for her earlier feelings on finding herself pregnant as a teen she's done her best to bring up Zach, but as teens are prone to, he gets into trouble one night when she's at work and he's supposed to be safe at home with her fiancé, Rob. Robs' not really interested in Zach and has fallen asleep. She feels the best person to help Zach is his father Lucas, a Native Indian, but Lucas doesn't know she had a child, never mind that its actually his. He takes the news well, and when the judge says he's concerned that Zach was out alone and defacing property with a group of older kids, Lucas suggests he takes Zach and Tyne back to the village he grew up in to meet his relatives and other Native Indians for a month. Tyne hasn't seen her family since Zach was born as they were not happy she was involved with Lucas, being very WASP snobbish type characters. Zach's a typical teen, grumpy and sullen and yet keen in intelligence and loves to learn. He's fascinated by his history and gets on really well with his great uncle Jasper, the man who brought up Lucas. There's so much to the story, from racism and bigotry, to the way we lose contact with out backgrounds and family sometimes without intending it. The whole story brings out so much from many of the characters, and we meet people that had long been in the background for Tyne and Lucas. They were great characters, still had that spark that attracted them as teens, and it smouldered and fizzled into a blaze after a time. Jasper had a slew of interesting stories. Lucas' mother and the problems of extreme Religious thinking made another fascinating aspect, and then of course there's Tyne’s parents. Each character is carefully chosen and shaped to fit what becomes not just a story of reclaimed love but so much more, forgotten memories and tantalising futures. I really enjoyed this book and would happily re read. Its not hot, erotic sex, but a love story that has some well written and hot sex scenes but as part of the story, not one of those where the sex is all the story :) Stars: five, a great romance with an interesting and satisfying story.

Lucas comes up with a plan to take Zach back to Wikweko the place where Lucas was born and raised. It's there that Zach will learn important life lessons and becomes a better person from what he used to be. When Tyne steps back into the one place she tried to leave behind her past catches up to her and alot of memeories come pouring in and secrets come spilling out now the three of them have some catching up to do and there's a lot they must learn about themselves and each other. My Review: Firstly I would like to say what an amazing job the author did on this book and I wish I could give it more than the 5 stars because it definitely deserves a higher rating! It left a huge impact on me and one that I'll never forget! Not only is this story incredible but also the characters you watch them grow up tremendoulsy in front of your eyes! I really enjoyed this book alot it brought me smiles, laughter and on occassion some tears too but what I enjoyed most of all is the sense of family and how after some time the character's came together and formed this incredible bond! I also enjoyed learning the history aspect of it we get to see inside the Lenape community where Lucas grew up and what it meant to be a Silver Hawk and other cultures as well. Uncle Jasper was a really fun character to read about and he tells some fascinating stories but also stories that have a deeper meaning that you can learn alot from not only do the character's benefit from these stories but I believe the readers can benefit, learn and grow from them as well! I like the feeling of connectedness that you get when reading this book! I found myself anxious to get started reading this book I couldnt wait to see what story lay ahead just waiting to be told.. it's an easy book to read and lose yourself in every moment is a page turner that will have you riding an emotional roller coaster! I had a hard time putting it down! This is one author you'll want to keep an eye on and I look forward to reading more of her books! ***Review has been written in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official*** For more information regarding our reviews please visit our fansite at: www.facebook.com/NerdGirl.ng

Forced to return to the Delaware Indian community where Lucas was raised, Tyne and Lucas are tempted by the heated passion that consumed them as teens. Tyne rediscovers all the reasons she found this man irresistible, but there are scandalous secrets waiting to be revealed, disgraceful choices made in the past that cannot be denied. Love is a powerful force that could heal them both—if the truth doesn't rip them apart. My Thoughts... This is not the first book I've read by this author, Donna Fasano, nor will it be the last. I've always enjoyed reading her books. Some are for me "Mind Candy" which I always enjoy when I'm craving something sweet. However, this story is not a "Mind Candy" story. It is an uplifting story of family, love, and forgiveness. It was an enjoyable, but also an emotional journey of the heart with lovable characters, some more lovable than others. I found this book more than a romance novel, oh yes, it had romance, but it had so much more...It was a story of families making difficult decisions in their lives. How those decisions affected other family members for years to come. In the end it was also a feel-good story, at least it left me feeling good. I liked the story so much that I awarded it 4****. My thanks to the author, Donna Fasano, she provided her book for me to read and give an honest review. Thank you Donna for two pleasant days of reading. The only struggle I had reading your novel, was the struggle to put it down once I started reading it. I did not receive any type of compensation for reading and reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers and authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review.

I finished reading this book about 3 or 4 days ago and have struggled to write a decent review since then. The premise of this book by itself already deserves at least 3 stars. In times like these, when romance is dominated by 'psycho' billionaires and whiny heroines, a book with a Native American hero is just...AWESOME! Kudos to the author for the brave choice.I also loved that Tyne is so strong and fought for what she believed was right, for her son, since day one.She made a great heroine for sure. Literally, a heroine. BUT... The plot has layers and layers of 'issues' to be resolved and I'm afraid some of them were, at some point, taken for granted or superficially resolved. I mean, suddenly people who hated each other are now great friends et al. Also, I wanted a little more passion from the main characters. The 'flashback' in their lives show us two people madly in love but their present interaction is kind of lukewarm with some good action only towards the end. BUT... I LOOOOVED how the characters changed (main and secondary) and how they found in each other what they needed to become better people...happier people. A beautiful story.

    Beyond the entertainment provided by a good book there is often more to be gained for a savvy reader. Fictional characters can be like windows into the minds and hearts of others and sometimes can provide a catalyst to a better understanding of ourselves. Any book in the romance genre almost always has this. While we’re being entertained by the foibles and human frailties of the hero and heroine we’re also gaining insight into how other people think and react in different situations. The best au Beyond the entertainment provided by a good book there is often more to be gained for a savvy reader. Fictional characters can be like windows into the minds and hearts of others and sometimes can provide a catalyst to a better understanding of ourselves. Any book in the romance genre almost always has this. While we’re being entertained by the foibles and human frailties of the hero and heroine we’re also gaining insight into how other people think and react in different situations. The best authors are keen observers of human nature and able to translate what they’ve found into their stories. I’ve read many of Donna Fasano’s books and from her very first, Mountain Laurel, originally published a few decades ago, have been impressed by her ability to create characters that rang true to life. Reclaim My Heart continues this streak, but it also has something extra. In addition to the type of themes you’d expect in a romance novel mostly revolving around romantic relationships, marriage, and commitment, are several others. While issues of the role and importance of the immediate family, a couple and any children involved, this book also explores extended family and how these relationships influence lives in both good and bad ways. Ideas around this subject are looked at from multiple perspectives, Tyne’s relationship with her parents, the relationship Lucas and Zach (Tyne’s son) have with Lucas’ Uncle Jasper, and the relationship between an Amish woman who figures into Lucas’ life and her father. Other themes such as culture, religion or spirituality, and the concept of home and roots (both familial and geographical) play a part in the story. The result is Fasano’s best book yet. One that should satisfy the romance reader looking for entertainment, but a story with more complexity under the surface than a typical romance. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog.

Lucas, Tyne, and Zach are ordered by the judge to spend a month in the Native American community where Lucas grew up. There, old wounds are opened as Lucas and Tyne relive their adolescent love affair, but along with the past, new passion is rekindled. I really admired Tyne for her strength in going it alone raising her child on her own when she was barely an adult herself. Her parents behaved horribly toward her, and even though they reconciled with Tyne, I was never satisfied that they truly grasped the awfulness of their behaviour and attitudes. Because I was rooting so much for Tyne, I also often found her son to be annoying and unlovable. Yes, he was just being a typical teenager, but he didn’t appreciate anything she did and didn’t display many redeeming qualities. Tyne did a fantastic job raising him. Why couldn’t he respect that? Why was it that he only ‘grew up’ when he goes hunting and camping? The romance between Tyne and Lucas was believable and powerful. I could see how they matched each other so well, and I really did believe in their happily ever after. Lucas wasn’t perfect, but I understand why he made those choices, and he was man enough to recognise his mistakes and want to rectify them. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. 3.5 stars out of 5

    Ahhhh Lucas Silver Hawk, what can I say, tall, dark and Native American. I have a soft spot for all these characteristics in a man. I think it’s the myth and legend that surrounds the overall Native American culture, which piques my interest further. Tyne and Lucas’s story isn’t a happy one, young lovers who make a mistake and are inevitably torn apart by their cultural and familial differences.

Racism rears its head in this book, but it is handled well and it is integral to the story. I shed a few tears at points, literally wanting to shout “can you not see what you are doing”….. Lucas isn’t aware that he has a son by Tyne, so when she shows up asking for his help with Zach who is now 16, and heading in the wrong direction, you can understand he is shocked, but reacts to the whole revelation better than she expected him to, and steps in as best he can. The spark between Lucas And Tyne reignites, and I enjoyed reading the re-development of their relationship, even though the reactions of other characters were not always on the positive side, it made the story all the more interesting and captivating for it. I have to say I have always loved romances where characters are reunited, and Reclaim My heart is definitely one of the better ones. I think it is mainly attributed to all the other aspects and themes that are included in the overall story. This is one of those books you stay up late into the night reading with the “just one more chapter” mantra going through your head. ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for the above honest review.

    To bring a family together. To show the hardships that are in the past and to move forward not just for oneself but for everyone involved. To be a single parent for fifteen years and then have to contact the other parent who doesn't know that they have a son to get help must be one of the hardest things to do. It shows the whole story what makes a family grow stronger is the trust and respect that they each have for one another.

To be a single parent for fifteen years and then have to contact the other parent who doesn't know that they have a son to get help must be one of the hardest things to do. It shows the whole story what makes a family grow stronger is the trust and respect that they each have for one another. To go back where your from a place that you promised would never have a hold on you again yet to feel like this is home this is where I belong and to feel alive once more. The thoughts are all brought together in this book. It is a wonderful read that I couldn't out down I could see the characters come to life as I got more and more into their story I was rooting that everything would work out in the end. This book proves that even after 15 years the heart knows what it wants, and that each person is responsible for their own actions and it shows the character of that person.

    I really enjoyed this book. It is not the first book I have read by Donna Fasano but it is my favorite. This book is a contemporary romance and so much more. Lucas and Tyne had some tough choices to make when they were younger and have to deal with the consequences of those choices, the racism and raising a teenager in today's world. Lucas and Tyne were very believable. I enjoyed the Native American aspect of the story. When they re-connect years later as adults, I found myself hoping that they I really enjoyed this book.

Tyne, Lucas and Zach all have something to learn and the pace at which this happens is well-written. There are books I read and enjoy but know they can't be "real". This story, however, is a great read and very "real". This book is definitely worth your time and you will not be disappointed. You will enjoy the story from the first page to the last page and will be happy with the ending.

    Well I'm on the fence about this one. I'll admit this is one of my favorite tropes in a story. I guess I was expecting a little more angst. Granted I'm not a super huge fan of angst,but I just didn't feel that emotion from either one. I know it was there but it was just very glossed over. I would've liked to have known what Zach was feeling at times, especially while he was out camping with Uncle Jasper. I liked all of the characters, but I didn't feel I had enough information about any of them, Well I'm on the fence about this one. I'll admit this is one of my favorite tropes in a story.

I hate that I didn't like this one more and maybe I just wasn't in the mood for it when I was reading it. It had potential but it just sort of fell flat for me. I received this copy from netgalley for an honest review.

    This book was great! I could not put it down! Read the book in 3 hours! The characters are so realistic and believable. I would recommend this book to readers young and old. I could identify with and feel for the characters. It is truly a heartwarming story and I just hated it when I got to the end. I wished there were more pages to read because I loved the characters and the plot of the story!

This book focuses on a crisis point in single mother Tyne’s life, when her son Zach is arrested for vandalism and brought before the judge. Zach is a fairly typical fifteen year old boy: testing the limits, sullen and often reserved. Add to that his mixed race heritage and his mother’s never ending struggle as she works long hours to keep the household moving and you have a scene that is familiar to many, yet heartbreaking every time it happens. Tyne is beside herself, and seeks the advice of the only lawyer she knows of. Lucas is a high-flying attorney, unaware of the fact that Tyne was pregnant when they separated after a teenage love affair. Tyne’s family was distraught when their daughter announced her pregnancy, made even more disturbing when Lucas, a Lanape Indian boy, was named as father. The story manages to incorporate all of the backstory and the current struggle that the three have: Zach’s anger and frustration with his mother for always working his learning about his heritage, and relationship with his father is a highlight, but Tyne and Lucas have many issues to sort out between the two of them, and both Lucas and Tyne have unresolved family struggles to sort out if they are to put Zach back on the right path. Narration in this audiobook is provided by Amy McFadden, she does a workable narration although it took some time to get used to her overly enthusiastic voice manipulations to delineate character differences. While the voices were clearly defined, there was often an emphasis on getting the ‘tone’ to match character, rather than presenting the often emotionally laden subtext hidden within the revelations: a lack of pauses in expected places that would have given the listener the full benefit of the revelation were missing. Narration wasn’t distracting, per se, but not as smooth an integration of the story as I would have hoped. I’ve often said that Donna Fasano is one of my favorite authors, and this book or audiobook version continues to reinforce that point. A touch more sensual than many of her titles, the characters are real and breathing, and the story is loaded with hope: hope that everyone will find their own happiness and place in the world, no matter the obstacles. I received an AudioBook copy of the title from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility. ~~~eBook Review ~~~~ I’ve become a major fan of Donna Fasano’s books, the romances always being ‘approachable’ with characters that not only arrive well defined, but manage to grow and change throughout the story, usually addressing issues that are common in feel to many. In this story, single mother Tyne is trying to manage her catering business while raising her teenaged son. While anyone with a teenager understands the trials that come: having a teen that is mixed race adds a whole other group of concerns and issues into the mix. When Zach is picked up by the police, after curfew, with evidence of guilt all over his person, the arrest leads Tyne to reach out to the only good lawyer she knows, Zach’s father Lucas. Throughout this story, the points of view and the difficulties that arise from situations caused by decisions made as teenagers, Tyne and Lucas are forced to face one another and work together to prevent Zach making decisions that he will later come to regret or wish to hide. These three characters coming to face choices of personal responsibility, owning your decisions and even the power of letting go of judgments and old shames was particularly effective. As Zach came to learn the importance of honor and reputation for himself: both Tyne and Lucas were forced to revise their own views and take accountability. I really enjoyed the quiet way that Uncle Jasper became such a fixture to all three characters: his quiet manner and approach without reaction TO events, but always having some bit of wisdom wrapped in a tale managed to allow the characters to find their own aha moments, with gentle nudges. Their growth and ability to incorporate, albeit slowly, the lessons and information, even when they all harbor guilt about their choices made with the best of intentions at the time gives the reader a taste of the struggles that true personal growth entails. Particularly satisfying was the love connection that rekindled between Lucas and Tyne: even after all the years, their chemistry felt electric, and when they decided to allow impulse to override fear, their scenes were incredibly sensual and steamy. Even in memory, the sexual chemistry between the two was evident: which could have increased Tyne’s parent’s fears beyond their mistrust and misguided impression of Lucas and his Lenape ancestry. To be honest, Tyne the teenaged girl was as invested in ‘hiding’ the relationship with Lucas, fearing her friends’ reactions and her popularity – so everyone had a need to grow. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the characters were wonderful, Jasper’s parables and stories provided plenty of insight into the differences in cultures, as well as providing some truly unique parenting tips. Lucas and Tyne both managed to grow up from the teens they were, and truly incorporate those changes into the adults they are now. And Zach, as annoying as a teenager can be, truly found a place with friends and the acceptance that every teenager longs for. After devouring this book in one sitting, I can’t help but wish that we all had access to our own Uncle Jasper. I received an eBook from the author for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    Beautiful story!! Loved this book from beginning to end. Very well written, keeps you engaged at all times. It portraits the reality of our society and modern world where you have to manage between kids, work, expectations and external influences. Life as messy and beautiful as it can be. It's hard not to fall in love with Lucas, that for sure! Beautiful story!! Loved this book from beginning to end. Very well written, keeps you engaged at all times.

    **3.8 As posted on KindleObsessed Blog** Mae Whitman put it best when she said “Being a teenager is hard.” This (of course) being a universal fact known to all of us over the age of 25. As teenagers we are ruled by only a few things: our emotions and our parents, and both can swing or sway our decisions in ways we never fully recognize until we breeze past our formative years.

As teenagers we are ruled by only a few things: our emotions and our parents, and both can swing or sway our decisions in ways we never fully recognize until we breeze past our formative years. Most of these issues aren’t life changing. More often than not they are tiny little speed bumps in our road to self discovery, but every once in a while they aren’t. And because of this (whatever decision it is we made) our life changes irrevocably. “Reclaim My Heart” by Donna Fasano is a prime literary example of what happens when your teenage decisions have adult consequences, AND how forgiveness is more than just an 11 letter world. "Sixteen years ago, Tyne Whitlock cut all ties to her past and left town under the shameful shadow of a teenage pregnancy. Now her fifteen-year-old son is in trouble with the law and she is desperate for help. But reaching out to high-powered attorney Lucas Silver Hawk will tear open the heart-wrenching past in ways Tyne never imagined. Forced to return to the Delaware Indian community where Lucas was raised, Tyne and Lucas are tempted by the heated passion that consumed them as teens. Tyne rediscovers all the reasons she found this man irresistible, but there are scandalous secrets waiting to be revealed, disgraceful choices made in the past that cannot be denied. Love is a powerful force that could heal them both–if the truth doesn’t rip them apart." Second chances make for great love stories, and it’s with my limited experience that very few can capture the ache of long-lost love quite like Fasano. Having read several of her books, I have come to appreciate her knack for storytelling. Unlike some authors (who will remain nameless) she doesn’t dwell, instead she pushes her characters to live. Yes, they have a past. Yes, that past is explained and validated (one way or the other) but it doesn’t become their existence. Because of this, her characters experience amazing growth, AND more growth equals stronger connections (for both the reader AND the characters.) For example: Tyne (the lead female in RMH) is forced to face several demons (her ex, her parents, a bigotry filled past.) Human nature (and popular opinion) compels us to hide from things that make us uncomfortable, but Tyne does the opposite…she stares it straight in the face. Allowing the protagonist the ability to move forward keeps the plot moving steadily forward as well. And, having a plot rich in Native American culture (which could potentially stall a story) forward movement is nothing less than mandatory. Speaking of Native American culture…call me impressed by the amount of (not only research but) relevance it added to this novel. Long story short, Tyne’s core plot-line centers around her son’s sudden need for rebellious activity. His lack of respect, appreciation and overall attitude is challenged by the communities elders (specifically his father’s uncle.) Instead of traditional punishment (for instance grounding him from his iPad) the elders put him to work, teach him tradition, and demand change (though they don’t come right out and say it.) Reading his development through the techniques of his tribe was truly entertaining (and I might add enlightening…I might implement a few of them in my own home.) So where does this leave “Reclaim My Heart” in the grand scheme of things? I say towards the top. It is easily one of Fasano’s best novels, and tells a heartwarming and believable love story in a very unique way. It’s clean. It’s well plotted, and only wears the weight of a few flaws. (Like: the underdevelopment of Tyne’s fiance.) If you are a fan of say…redemption romances, this is the perfect book for you. It’s filled with family, forgiveness and heart. Happy reading my fellow Kindle-ites and remember: “Sometimes what you’re searching for, is right where you left it.” – Sweet Home Alabama

We see this right at the beginning of the novel when we find out that Tyne left her hometown when she was pregnant as a teenager, and did not even choose to tell the father about it, but when it comes down to it, he is the one that she needs help from the most. I really liked the characters in this book, Tyne I could see some of my Mom in, she was also a single Mother, and did whatever she had to (working long hours and evenings if need be) to make sure that there was enough to go around. I also think that the author did a great job of portraying her son as a teen that is confused about things in life, and acting out to get attention, who didn't do that as a teen? Not many people I know. When we see the story progress and Lucas takes them back to his hometown we see a very strong Indian influence, especially when we meet Uncle Jasper, he is one of the elders in town, and pretty much raised Lucas after he lost his father when he was young. I think I enjoyed this a lot as it really brings a lot to the story as far as character development. The romance in this book was also really realistic, as there is a history with Tyne and Lucas, and all cannot be forgiven easily, they need to work at it, and see if it is something that they can get through and bring them together again. At the same time that they are doing this, they are also trying to dual parent at the same time which is difficult for Tyne as she has been making all of the decisions till now, but she understands now that Lucas is there, she needs to take his opinion in to consideration. Overall I would give this book a 4/5 and would really suggest picking it up if you like contemporary romance.

    I should be upset with Ms. Fasano for writing such a topical star-crossed lovers’ story. I feel so fickle, like I have no loyalty to her other stories, which I have loved before. Each new book proves to be my absolute new favorite. I thought I was a loyal person, I really did, but this book is unlike any she has written so far and it blew my socks off. There are family secrets and lies, cultural differences and bigotry, wrapped in a coming of age story along with reclaiming lost love.

There are family secrets and lies, cultural differences and bigotry, wrapped in a coming of age story along with reclaiming lost love. This story encompasses at least three generations with multiple levels of complexity and I was afraid some of the story lines would get lost in the twists and turns of the plot. Every single character is developed with honesty and compassion; from rebellious fifteen-year old Zachary Whitlock who refuses to take responsibility for his actions to Ruth Yoder who faced responsibility head-on and gave up her baby thirty years ago. I have to say Uncle Jasper was my favorite character, he is one of the reasons I love stories about Native Americans. This is not just a story about star-crossed lovers it is a journey of souls that have affected this couple as well. This is a story about accepting the past for what it is and moving forward. The exploration of the human condition that was accomplished in this story is simply amazing. Kudos Ms. Fasano, if I could give you ten gold stars I would. FYI: This book contains adult language and situations that may be offensive to some. The editing and formatting were excellent, I found no issues. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog.

Lucas and Tyne's history wasn't revealed all at once, it slowly trickled out through the book with a some twists. Uncle Jasper's 'Lessons' and Zach's growth into 'manhood' was what really captured me. It reminded me of whats really important in the relationship with your children. You might think you're doing the best thing for them but its easy to get caught up in the daily grind. Are we spending enough quality time together? Do I really know him/ her? When Zach Questioned his mother if she was ashamed of him, my heart broke. That really hit home. I have secrets that I haven't shared and I started wondering if my choices and actions were causing my boys to have negative thoughts. I'm confident no, but it was a good reminder to question everything I do. I loved the development of Lucas and Zach's relationship. Zach was lost and with only having his mum who withheld his heritage and all other family members, he was craving for a connection. It was so good to watch him get that. An interesting twist was Lucas' mother. I'll keep that secret. To complete this beautiful book was Tyne and Lucas finally getting their HEA. Overall it was a feel good story that left me still thinking about it days later and that's my recipe for a 5 star.

    This was such a sweet and down to earth story. The issue of race, ethnicity discrimination is such a rare theme on NA or YA books that I was pleasantly surprised to come across this one. Lucas is Native American, Tyne is white and from a rich and prominent family... needless to say her parents didn't approve of their relationship. Race discrimination was not the only theme... single motherhood, parenting, the issue of an adolescent trying to fit in, trying to find its roots and values.

Race discrimination was not the only theme... single motherhood, parenting, the issue of an adolescent trying to fit in, trying to find its roots and values. Jasper was such a charismatic and strong character but I felt he could have been developed better or more. As a great-uncle who taught Lucas and Zach so many important life lessons I felt there was so much more we could have learned from him, more about the Lenape traditions and culture. I mean, I loved what he brought to the story but I wanted more. At first I was quite put-off by Tyne's attitude, she was annoying and standoffish, but later on when the reader learns what she had to go thru with her parents when she found herself pregnant in her teens and then raising her son on her own and all, we can't help but understand and sympathize with her. She is a strong character and after she decides to accept that she brought Lucas to their lives and he has his rights as a parent too, then things improve significantly. This is one of those stories that warms your heart and leaves you feeling so good after it all said and done.

The characters in the story are well developed and it is easy to follow their emotions through the story. You find yourself taking a ride with them on their emotional rollercoaster! There is a good balance between the main characters: Tyne, Zach and Lucas and the number of secondary characters. The secondary characters do not overpower the story, which can be a major downfall in many a good book, There is humour incorporated into the book and you find yourself smiling at times while reading. The plot is believable and it draws you in from the beginning. As the book is a romance you just know how the book is going to end and this book doesn’t disappoint. However, the journey the book takes to get to the end is full of twists and is far from predictable. Enjoyable read!

    This was a beautifully written, emotional story. There were a few places in the book, which brought tears to my eyes. Other places made me laugh, and smile. The Author did an outstanding job on this story. When Tyne found out she was pregnant, she cut all ties from family, and friends, and left town. She worked hard to provide for her son Zach. As a single mom, she had to work a few late nights. She knew Zach was going through a hard time, but she thought it was just him being a teen.

Reality came crashing down when she got a call to pick her son up at the police station…Looking at her options, she knew she had to tell his father, that he was father. It had been 16 years since she had seen or spoken to him. Luke was a Lenape Indian. Zach only being raised by his mother, felt lost, like he didn’t belong. He had a lot of the Indian in him. He always wondered why he didn’t look like his other classmates. The puzzle pieces of his life shifted together once he met his dad Luke, and his uncle Jasper. Racism, teen pregnancy, and hard life choices were all addressed in this book. Families were reunited for the first time after 16 years. This was a really moving story, with a lot of life lessons that were learned along the way.
