Blog Tour: Mary Whitney's "Disclosure of the Heart."

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour for Mary Whitney's "Disclosure of the Heart."

Publication Date:  November 5, 2013
Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc. 



Sixteen years is a long time to wait for your true love to reappear, and, anyway, Nicki Johnson couldn’t wait for the impossible to happen. Hard life lessons have taught her that fairy tales are children’s stories, and fate is cruel. Burying her hopes, she’s spent the last sixteen years focused and driven toward her career, and it’s landed her with a job at the White House with a gem of a boyfriend. But when her high school love, Adam Kincaid, walks into the White House as a BBC reporter, Nicki’s world is thrown into turmoil as she relives their past. Adam has come back for her, but has he arrived too late?

Blog Tour Review:

I really thought I was going to love this but it wasn't meant to be.

"Then he'd broken my heart, and though he'd desperately tried, 
all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't have put it back together again."

When I read the first book in the series, Beside Your Heart, I thought that *this* was the story I wanted. I wanted the story of their second chance, I wanted to see how they were going to get back to together. Now, whilst this book was that story, it wasn't at all how I was hoping it would be. It bored me.

Disclosure of the Heart starts off right where we left off, in the present, and Nicki and Adam are thrown back together in the working world. Nicki is working for the president and Adam is a news reporter from the BBC (freaking love this British boy ♥). They haven't seen each other in 16 years so you can imagine the awkwardness that is to come. I was looking forward to it..

The overly descriptive talk of the political stuff going on in the US, and the news reporting from Adam was FAR TOO MUCH. Obviously I expect some when this is the characters careers, but it was boring as hell. It felt like it was almost too much of the story, instead of focusing on Adam and Nicki's relationship. Their relationship itself was also a painful part of the story, because for so long I felt as though there was just nothing there. Nicki has a boyfriend at the time she meets back up with Adam, so as you can imagine, this turned in to a love triangle of sorts. Woohoo, my favourite (cue sarcasm).

"You can't be in love with one person while making out with another."

It's a real pity I didn't love this story, because I wanted to and the authors writing is actually very good. It's just the story and topic in which she chose to write about that bored me too much in the end.
