"Lonely Heart" by M.J. Kane was this author's third book of 'The Butterfly Memoirs." This was definitely a novel of "consequences of past decisions can ruin your future" as it was for the two main characters...Kaitlyn Rogers and Antonio Rodriguez.
What I Liked:
We find from the read that Kaitlyn will have to face some problems...being pregnant, single,new job, a younger sister coming to live with her...leading a lonely life but will there is some light for her after she meets Antonio?
Now, we find that have Antonio will have some problems too...being raised by a single parent due to his mother dying after childbirth of teens, having to help take care of his siblings, not wanting to follow in his fathers footsteps, however, he did find his way to becoming a top notched auto mechanic. But in the end still a lonely man. The question is why were both of these people lonely?
What I Also Liked:
After Kaitlyn meets Antonio due to needing her car repaired, her life will change but before we can get to the happier ever after...This will be where I say you will have to pick up "Lonely Heart" to see how this author will bring it out to the reader. Be ready to go on a roller coaster ride and at the end of the ride we will see some happiness for all, however, before we get there we will see how the breakdown on communication can cause some problems. In the end we will see that the truth and no more secrets shall set you free as it was for Kaitlyn. Will Kaitlyn and Antonio finally have the happiness that they both desired? This novel really does a good job with this heroine in showing us how she really thought about her life and then their is Antonio willing and able to help her through it all only if Kaitlyn will let him. The characters in this novel were all simply off the chart good being well developed, well rounded, real, well portrayed, colorful and well build only to drawn you into the story... and in the end giving us a well told story.
What I Didn’t Like:
I didn't like how Kaitlyn's parents treated their siblings. I found it rather interesting that after the grandchild was born they never left Texas to visit their two daughters and grandchild in California. This was very interesting...only letting me see some of the how and why Kaitlyn was so mixed up about her life.
In The End:
This was a excellent read. I believe for you really to truly understand this third book (friendship) you really will need to read this authors first two novels...Book 1- A Heart Not Easily Broken and Book 2 - Jaded as well as this novel Book 3 - Lonely Heart. In each of these reads you will find that all three novels are of three friends Ebony, Yasmine and Kaitlyn... truly this was a unbreakable friendship. Would I recommend "Lonely Heart?" YES, YES AND YES!
