Callie's Heart, by Kathleen Ball, had my heart racing and my stomach doing flips, as if I were the one involved in Callie's romance with the hunky and vulnerable cowboy, Garret O'Neill.
Right from the first page, Ms. Ball had lassoed me in, inviting me to feel the bright, Texas sun on my face and the sweet, Texas grass on my feet. Like Callie, I too was in love with Garret, a strong, blue-eyed cowboy with a jealous streak. And like Callie, he broke my heart when he'd broken hers. I rode the emotional roller coaster with her every time Garret gave her his love and took it back. I wanted to shoot him, I wanted to love him.
Callie's Heart is a tender love story, painted in vibrant colors through Kathleen Ball's words. I didn't want it to end. Lucky for me, I can read it again and again until the release of her next novel. I don't usually re-read a novel as soon as I finish it, but the fluttering in my own stomach felt so real, that reading Callie's Heart is like falling in love all over again. Who wouldn't want to read a contemporary romance that makes you feel like that?
