Tour de Force Masquerade Book Review & Giveaway: Change of Heart by Jackie Chanel

Change of Heart by Jackie Chanel
Publish Date: June 2, 2011

My Review:
Change of Heart is a very interesting read.  It's like a train wreck that you can't turn away from, but I mean that in a good way.  I actually see this as a very realistic book.  What goes on between Asia, Anthony and Shayla is not uncommon.  Women are scheming, women use children to keep men close and sometimes men are weak.  Sometimes women are spoiled as well as in Asia's case.  There are times I really wanted to slap all three of them.  Now Jay I loved.  But as the story moved along I understood each character more.  I may not always like each character, but understanding their motives made the book move quick and made it very enjoyable.

As I mentioned before I think Ms. Chanel writes with realism more in mind than anything else.  This isn't a dreamy romance.  This is real life.  This is a woman dealing with a romance she thinks is the right one while trying to manage college, basketball and other things.  The realistic spin kept me coming back every time I had to put the book down to do something.  I had to know what would happen next.  What the characters would do, what choices would be made.  Some had me cheering and lots had me shaking my head, but all had me deeply interested in the book and to me that is what makes a good book.

This is my first book by Jackie Chanel and it won't be my last, I am intrigued by her writing style, interested in the romance she writes and the characters she creates.  I find her stories to be realistic and riveting, it's like mixing Jerry Springer with Sidney Sheldon.  There is drama and more drama and there is even a baby mama as well :)

My Rating:  4.25/5.0

About the Book:
Millions of adoring fans...loving and devoted parents...fantastic friends...the world belongs to Asia Pierce, at least she thinks so.

There is only one thing that eludes the girl who has it all...unconditional and everlasting love. Asia wants what every woman wants, the fairytale. And Asia always gets what she wants.

With three men vying for her heart, Asia has a decision to make. Who can she trust? Which one will love her the most? The answer is right in front of her. But will years of bad judgement and one bad romance cloud her judgement? Will one more bad decision make her miss out on the best thing that has ever happened to her?

Change of Heart will take you on an emotional roller coaster ride as Asia's career and love life spiral out of control until she makes the decision that will change her life forever.
