Heart Bones is a beautiful, emotional, and uplifting story. A peninsula in Texas as the setting for this book was perfect. The main character Beyah already had gone through so much and I admired her strength, even if it was obvious that she was broken. She never had any family she could depend on, and she pretty much raised herself. I love books where the characters are a bit broken or damaged, and I can't help but root for a better life for them. When Beyah doesn't have a choice but stay with her father, who she does not have any relationship with, she is stand-offish and does her best to keep her distance from him and his new family. She gains a step-sister who thankfully is really nice and convinces her to enjoy her summer there. Because of her she meets Samson who is also her neighbor. He is quiet, brooding and very secretive.

This book is told completely from Beyah's POV, so Samson stays a mystery for the reader as well. Which I liked for this story because we are learning things the same time Beyah does, however, it did make it more difficult for me to fully connect to him. I also wish the book was longer or part of a duet, because I really wanted to see more of this couple. Nonetheless, I still enjoyed this book a lot. It was different and it headed in a direction that I didn't expect, which I really loved. The story was fast-paced and had a great flow. The story broke my heart a couple of times, and I couldn't contain my tears. The writing was great, which I wasn't surprised by because Colleen Hoover is an amazing author. I can't end this review without mentioning that the title was perfect for this book, and I absolutely love the cover. If you are intrigued by what you read in the synopsis or my review, then I recommend you to read this book.


Samson’s knee brushes high up on my inner thigh and I’m glad he can’t see anything from my chin down, because my body is covered in chills right now.

“I didn’t think there were many people in the world like me,” he says.

“You think we’re alike?” I want to laugh at that comparison, but there’s not an ounce of humor in his expression.

“I believe we have a lot more in common than you think we do, Beyah.”

“You think you’re as alone in this world as I am?”

He folds his lips together and nods his head, and it’s the most honest thing I’ve ever seen. I never would have thought someone so well off could have a life as shitty as mine, but I can see it in the way he’s looking at me. Everything about him suddenly seems familiar to me.

He’s right. We are alike, but only in the saddest ways.

My voice comes out in a whisper when I say, “When I first met you on that ferry, I could tell you were damaged.”

There’s a flicker of something in his eyes as he tilts his head to the right. “You think I’m damaged?”


He moves even closer in the water, but there wasn’t much space left between us to begin with. It’s deliberate, and so much of me is touching so much of him now. “You’re right,” he says quietly, slipping a hand around the back of my left knee. “There’s nothing left of me but a fucking pile of debris.” He pulls me to him, wrapping both my legs around him. That’s all he does, though. He doesn’t try to kiss me. He just connects us together as if that’s enough while our arms keep us both afloat.

I’m swiftly succumbing to him. I don’t know in what way. All of them, maybe. Because right now, I need him to do something else. Anything else. Taste me. Touch me. Drag me under.

We watch each other for a moment and it’s almost like looking into a broken mirror. He leans in slowly, but not toward my mouth. He presses his lips against my shoulder, so gentle it feels like a graze.

I close my eyes and inhale.

I’ve never felt anything so sensual. So perfect.
