Orphaned at an early age, now twenty-four-year-old Camryn Lucks is ready to commit to find that special someone, and so accepts a date from a charming, gallant, handsome stranger. The last thing she imagines after accepting that first date with Carson would actually be the beginning of her worst nightmare.
Red roses, a reminder of her parents’ killer, soon become an emblem of horror for Cami as one by one, those closest to her fall victim to a serial killer. Cami becomes an obsession for Carson, the man she had finally allowed herself to love. Not only is he vying for her heart, but also her life.
Finding herself in a whirlwind of torments shadowed by the blood-coloured bloom, Cami finds solace in Isaac, a neighbouring police officer. She’s desperate to escape the haunting memories, but she must revisit them in order to catch her would-be killer. Living life in constant fear has driven Cami to second-guess every choice she makes. Will the police catch the elusive murderer, or will Cami be forced to face him once again?

GIFTED COPY REVIEW.
So Bleeding Hearts (Book #1) by Dana Louise Provo is the story of twenty-four-year-old Camryn Lucks, Cami to her friends a shy girl orphaned at a young age and just wanting some love.
So when a handsome stranger Carson shows an interest Cami imagines herself in love.
But it soon becomes apparent there is something a bit off about her new love, her friends can see it but Cami wants to believe in his love so ignores the warning signs.
When she finally does see the light Carson shows his true colours forcing Cami to fight for her life and ending up on the doorstep of neighbour Isaac a police officer who then makes it his mission to take Cami under his wing and protect her from the madman who is obsessed with her.
So I did enjoy this, I just struggled a bit with the writing style as it was a bit different to what I am used to.
Bleeding hearts told the story backwards with Cami’s run to safety and then a series of flashback telling the backstory here.
As this progresses we get to see all the events that have led up to this present time.
And as Issac struggles to protect Cami they grow closer pulled together in a way by the circumstances as well as a mutual attraction.
So I liked the fact that this was more story focused than romance focused.
The romance between Cami and Isaac almost took a back seat as events unfolded.
happening slowly in the background.
Though the way this was told wasn’t really my favourite style of writing you couldn’t help but be pulled in as this story progresses.
The way events eventually unfolded, well I did guess, But that was fine it was still an edge of your seat ride that delivered on all fronts.
I would have liked maybe to get to know Isaac a bit more than I did as I feel he actually got lost in the story.
He was just there and I feel most of the focus was on Carson.
So yeh that would have the icing for me as I feel he was a bit of a stranger.
So yeh this was an entertaining read that I enjoyed.
I was provided with an ARC of “Bleeding Hearts” By the author of which I have reviewed voluntary.
