Eaven Bennett is a college student with a passion for photography. She has high hopes of completing college and starting a new life as she moves away from her hometown with her best friend, Ivy Adams. Her last boyfriend ruined any chance of her trusting ever again.
One minute your heart is filled with love, the next your entire life comes crashing down. Everything can change in a heartbeat. Can Eaven and Talon overcome the obstacles in their way and find love?
I really loved this story. I started reading this book and I couldn’t put it down. I started to read it around 12am one night and next thing I knew it was 2AM and I was 77% done!
In a Heartbeat starts off with Eaven and Ivy, they are college students off to live it up on their own. Both girls are bright, one more carefree than the other. Eaven is the level-headed one but her life changes when she lays eyes on Talon Walker, the walls she put up are about to come crumbling down.
Talon Walker is a HOT drummer of the band ‘Rebel Walking’. He has a twin brother Taron, who is also in the band (lead singer). These two are complete opposites. Where Talon is sweet, Taron is just plain old bad! After a tragedy in his past, Talon shut himself down seeking solace through the beats of his drums. But when he lays his eyes on Eaven he can’t help his intrigue. She is beautiful and carries herself well, even thru the red cheeks she always seems to get! 🙂
This book was written in both Eaven and Talon’s POV’s and Storm wrote it well. That is not easy to do! For me going through each scene from the different views made it that more engaging. I loved that I could feel what each of them were experiencing and how different yet similar they were.
In a Heartbeat is a story of love. It’s a story of selflessness and the path one takes to overcome hardship. A story that expresses the fact that once should not allow a horrible past to overcome our lives but to push forward and be happy!
I would definitely recommend this book!
