Mini Reviews for Mini Books: The Heartbreak by Isabelle Connors

The Heartbreak (Undying Love #2)Title: The Heartbreak
Author: Isabelle Connors
Release Date: August 25, 2015

After fighting so hard to win Arianna's heart Skylar is determined to keep it. There's only one problem, life. He tries his hardest to adapt into college life, but it's not that easy balancing everything. No matter how hard he tries, there's always something or someone in his way.

Arianna knew that once Skylar left for College their relationship would never be the same. She tries her hardest to keep their relationship intact, but nothing seems to be enough.

Is their love truly an Undying Love or is it just an infatuation?

I struggle with where exactly to start.  I suppose I will start with a slight forewarning.  This book contains cheating.  I was not prepared.  It's something I personally don't care for in books, but I did not let that deter me from finishing it.  And I'm glad.  Because I did enjoy the rest of the story.  It was just the cheating that really got to me.

This book starts not terribly long after the first one ends, with Sky going off to college and the consequences of that.  I like that Arianna really grew a lot as a person.  She seemed a lot less weird and insisting on being selfless (which ended up making her selfish by the way).  She just wanted to be happy.  And I really liked her a lot more in this installment of Undying Love.  Skylar, on the other hand, I did not like so much in this book.  He was wonderful in the first book.  But he seriously screws up here and I kind of hate him for it.  I don't get how Ari can't hate him too, but my opinion is my own.

Something that I absolutely love about this series is that it's short.  That sounds weird when I say it.  But I love short books.  I like this new trend of having a series of novellas where you get a full story in a much shorter page number.  Again, that's my personal opinion.  If A Song of Ice and Fire were twelve books rather than five, I would be much more likely to finish the series.  I'm a Pavlovian dog in need of a reward.  And for me, finishing a book is my reward.

Okay so I got sidetracked there.  Let's get back on track.  If you like YA romance you will probably enjoy this book, as long as the cheating thing doesn't bother you.

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
