***REVIEW*** Intentional by MK Harkins


By~ MK Harkins


I know this has to stop. Something has to give. A person cannot die of a broken heart. Believe me, I know. I’ve been waiting—and it’s just not happening.

What would you do in the face of the ultimate betrayal? This is the question facing the characters in MK Harkins’s riveting debut novel, Intentional. They will soon learn, however, that when love is involved, nothing is ever quite as it seems.

Mattie and Jeremy are engaged to be married and looking forward to a lifetime of love. It all crumbles away, however, when Mattie comes across evidence of a massive betrayal. Mattie flees to Washington in an attempt to start a new life and meets Cade, a tattooed engineer by day and a lead singer in a rock band by night. Their mutual attraction enflames Mattie, even as her heart still aches for her former fiancé. Just when it appears that Mattie may have found another stab at happiness, her past comes rushing back. As events unfold, it becomes clear to Mattie that things in her past may not have been quite what they seemed. Will Mattie ever learn the truth behind what really happened? And if she does, could it mean a new beginning with Jeremy, or will it be too late?

Readers will instantly be swept up in the saga of love and heartbreak that unfolds. Offering a rarely-before-seen glimpse into the heart and mind of a romantic villain, audiences will find a welcome reprieve from the typical romance novel.

Amy's Thoughts~ 

Lemme say first off. This is an AMAZING debut by MK Harkins. There are some people in this world who would scoff at the idea that Love can smack a person in the face. I am not one of these people. I know. I've lived it. And we've been together almost 10 years.

Mattie get's smacked upside the head by Love for Jeremy. It's intense. It's crazy. It's deep & all-consuming. Then it all comes crashing down. But are things REALLY as they seem??

Mattie sets off to makes some changes in her life. She wants to disappear from everyone. Her best friend. The love of her life. As she goes on this journey she makes new friends, she meets a new guy. Cade is mysterious, charming, makes her laugh. They become instant friends with amazing chemistry. The chemistry still rivals that of Jeremy, but she is trying.

Still shattered from the betrayals in her past, she tries to work through them. As soon as she thinks she has managed to put the past behind her, disaster strikes all over again. Is she strong enough to handle it?

Intentional is an emotional rollercoaster. And IS NOT a cliffy. Ms. Harkins does an exceptional job at portraying the 'Love-at-first-sight' emotions with Mattie and Jeremy. Then again with the 'friendship-blooms-to-love' emotions with Mattie and Cade. I was expecting some of the things that happened in this book, but DEFINITELY not all of them. It surprised me!!

Jeremy, Cade, Jeremy, Cade.... Which one will she choose? I know at the end of this book you'll be saying what I said "why can't she just have both?"
