Summary

“Jacob Phillips was my best friend. He was my first love. We shared our first kiss together. He broke my heart.”

Sage Weston and Jacob Phillips met as children at Little Kitty Orphanage. They had the type of friendship that could weather any storm, and they vowed that they would always be there for each other. And then Jacob was adopted, and everything changed. At first, the letters were fast and furious, but then they stopped, and Sage was left all alone.

Four years later, Sage and Jacob bump into each other at a college party. Sparks fly, daggers are drawn, and Sage wants nothing to do with Jacob or the bevy of women that seem to follow him everywhere he goes. Then Sage loses a bet, and she can no longer avoid Jacob. Though she does everything she can to let him know that they are no longer friends. But Jacob has plans and is determined for Sage to know the truth about what happened four years ago, even if it costs him everything.

Carry My Heart is a stand-alone book by New York Times best-selling author J. S. Cooper.

GREAT STORY IDEA


CARRY MY HEART is the first book in the Is This Love? series. I don’t know yet if they will need to be read in the order of release, but this one is complete with no cliffhanger.

The storyline is a great idea, but poorly executed.

The prologue is a great hook, but I’m not sure where it fits into the story. Therefore, in the end, I don’t know if they are together happily ever after, or she never wants to see him again.

The “angst” was so drawn out that I wanted to skip sections just to get to the next part that might give me some new information.

The ending twist was disappointing. It was a surprise (no doubt), but if he thought that would make her hate him, how well does he really know her?

The dialogue alternated between juvenile and geriatric – “No way, Jose!” “…, my dear.” Though only two examples, neither of these are used by 20-somethings in my experience.

That is the ugly of it. Still, I did enjoy listening to this story and hung in just to find out the reason for Jacob to drop out of Sage’s life so quickly after promising always to be there for her.

Narration: I loved Meghan Kelly’s reading of this story. She did a wonderful job of giving each of the main characters unique voices. This is one of those instances where the narration was better than the story.

Note: While I received this book as a gifted audiobook copy from the narrator, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

Meghan Kelly is 🎧Star🎧!

Another great narration by the talented Meghan Kelly. She performs the voices for all the characters, brings them to life and gives them heart and emotion. She is skilled & entertaining storyteller! “Carry My Heart” is a fast moving story, there are some heartfelt moments. I enjoyed the book and the characters, Sage and Jacob, I just wish wish J.S. Cooper took some of storylines further, if so she would made a good read a great one.

Wow a fantastic to carry your heart

Wow. Just wow. This is a fantastic audio. The storyline was very different. Who would have thought the reason that Jacob the main character kept away from Sage . So glad they found each other again once they started college. You won’t see the ending coming.
Meghan Kelly was beyond fantastic. She has you glued listening to the story . The range of her voice is very hypnotic. There are some parts in the story that 3 characters were talking between themselves and Meghan voice was dead on. It seemed you were right beside the characters.
