Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis book gets a big thumbs up for setting this book in an old people's home - very rarely does a book get set in such a locale and it makes for some great secondary characters.As to the main characters, Greg and Carrie were likeable but not memorable enough for you to really get invested in their relationship.

    12. SERIES: Stanton Family #3He felt good for the first time in a long time because she was in his life.This was probably my least favorite of the series only because I never really liked Carrie and her attitude toward their arrangement.

    14. 4 stars.This review also appears on Pretty Sassy Cool.I like Audra North, and I like FWB to more stories, so I was glad to pick up Healing Her Heart.

They've always felt a little spark when they've seen each other, but they've never been able to explore anything when their jobs have been so difficult (and time-consuming). Greg comes up with a plan--basically a week of hooking up. Of course, yo [...]

    21. This novella is short and sweet and will have you eating this up in one day. I not only judge a book I eant to read by the blurb but also the cover. Looking at the cover and blurb I prepared myself for an average read yet got something so much better. Carrie's heart was damaged by her ex while Greg has no life because as a heart surgeon he has devoted his life to his work. Life is not always willing to sit back and watch our mistakes but takes matters into hand. This story will educate you on th [...]

    22. What a great emotional fantastic read! Greg and Carrie were so cute together. I liked the way that even though they met a year ago and had the slow build of friendship, that their physical chemistry was explosive. And his words to suggest the physical relationshipswoon! It was hot! But I think what really made me like this book were the residents of Carrie's assisted living senior center. They were a hoot!

    23. What an absolutely sweet read! Greg and Carrie's characters had so much fiery chemistry that burned the pages on every turn! The character dialogue was both delightful and sizzling. Both characters had baggage and drama but both with outcomes that were convincing. The added mix of characters from New Beginnings, with their chatty, down to earth dialogue was a breath of fresh air. A quick entertaining read.4 Stars*ARC received from the Publisher for an honest review

    24. A fun read! The nursery home characters were a nice touch; I loved watching them get on Greg's case. The chemistry between Greg and Cassie was believable, and their story enjoyable.My only real complaint is that everything was resolved really quickly here--drawing it out a bit longer would have made it a touch more believable. Still, this was a very entertaining way to spend a morning. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series (very!) soon.

    25. I enjoyed reading this quick read. Greg is a cardiac surgeon who is starting to deal with too much bad and not enough good. A positive light in his life is Carrie who he only sees and talks to once he's done operating on someone she knows. Carrie has been attracted to Greg, but never has done anything about it until he shows up at her place of employment. Will one week be enough to get each other out of their systems? Or will they need more?

    26. This is a fantastic novella showing how important it is to live everyday to the fullest. Great characters all around but the main two are Greg, burned out cardiac surgeon and Carrie, ever hopeful head of the local assisted living facility. This story reminds us that every relationship has moments of give and take and how important it is to experience those. Highly recommend this one!

    27. Healing her Heart is a charming little story by Audra North. I dont normally read novellas but as soon as I saw this was from this author, I knew I had to read it! I love her writing style and I really enjoy her books!! And of course anything from Entangled Publishing is awesome!!

    28. This is third book in the Stanton family series. You can read them all as stand-alone or in order. The story was well written and lightly touched subject matter which occurs in everyday life. If you are chasing a quick read, you will love Audra North's books.
