Jessica Florence - Weighing of the Heart (Of The Heart, #1)

*Contains adult themes
**Review by Susan

The more I see the less I know for sure- John Lennon.

After living in peace for twenty five years Thalia Alexander’s life is about to change.

A black hair, grey eyed, sexy man shows up in her dreams, and then in reality. He looked like trouble with a capital T, but she couldn’t stay away. Something inside her called out for him.

Tristan Jacks is intense, and has a possessiveness for Thalia that she doesn’t understand. They just met, but it would seem like she has known him a lot longer.

Those strange dreams continue to stalk Thalia as her relationship with Tristan builds to be an epic love for the ages.

What do those dreams mean to her? Is Tristan the sexy, sweet, bad ass man he claims?

And when secrets are revealed will she be able to handle the truth?


So, Weighing of the Heart was a cover I had seen and heard of through the book world but honestly didn't know what to expect and having not read the blurb...I went in! 

So we meet Thalia, the main leading lady on her 25th birthday. We recognise that she has a good job she adores, nice apartment and the best friend she could ask for in Leander. But there was room for a man in her life, right?! Of course she would bump into the handsome stranger - who she couldn't help but feel more than the usual pull towards. 

------------------------------
My life was good. I had the best friend anyone could ask for, and the best boyfriend anyone could want.
------------------------------

But since meeting him, and even before meeting the handsome Tristan, she dreamt and dreams of him. But what does it all mean?

------------------------------
I know your falling for Tristan...
But I wanted to warn you.  He isn't who he says he is.  You should stay away 
------------------------------

From warning, to dreams of Egypt, gods and arranged marriages...where did she fit into it all?  Her confusion grows...

------------------------------
Everything will happen as it is meant to.  In the meantime, just enjoy life, and love with all of your heart.  Love is the most powerful force in the world.
------------------------------

Tristan loves her, undoubtedly. With his support, love and guidance, alongside her good friends she would discover more about herself than she ever imagined. These dreams would mean much more than she ever imagined.

------------------------------
My heart, body, and soul will airways being to you...He had the face of an angel.
------------------------------

But of course it wasn't all going to be straightforward. Someone who also knows of her history would literally come back with a vengeance. But would Tristan be able to find her?  

------------------------------
You were always meant to be mine. Then he stole you from me. You and I were made for each other. It was decided by the fates.
------------------------------

God the cliffhanger is killing me! But I can't wait to see what direction the next book takes.  
At one point I couldn't help but call it pink and fluffy...it was just all too good to be true but the last 30% when the answers began to come out about Thalia's history I really enjoyed it. I think it's a good basis for the rest of the books! I can't wait to read more!
