My name is Jaxon Hart.
You watched me grow up. You watched me fight for my life. Now, I’m fighting for hers.
From the second I laid eyes on Annika Leander, I wanted to help her. Protect her. Vindicate her. But she’s got baggage to get through. Hell, we both do.
A funny thing happens, though, when you finally connect with someone in a different way than you ever have before. The baggage doesn’t seem so heavy.
I suppose that’s really the only thing that matters when the heart gets involved.
This review is very hard for me to write because I know people are going to think I am heartless or uncaring but that isn’t the case. I wanted to love Matters Of The Hart, the premise caught my eye and I had settled in for an enjoyable read that I unfortunately was more irritated reading than I thought possible.
Now let me make something perfectly clear. I did not like Annika’s character at all, but I didn’t like her from the very first pages of her POV, it has absolutely nothing to do with what happened to her. Let me repeat that. It has absolutely nothing to do with what happened to her. In fact, my heart ached for her, for what sadly has happened to so many women and I wanted to take away her pain. Now yes that sounds contradictory but I just couldn’t connect with her and that was from the very start. Jaxon was who I hope my son grows up to be one day a hero who does the right thing when he sees something so horrific occurring.
I won’t go into all of the issues that I had with this as I have stated my main reason why I disliked it. I am sad because I have loved other books by M.E. Carter in the past so I am just going to say this is a case of it’s me not the book. As always form your own opinions and I will never discourage you from trying this yourself.

Mother, reader, storyteller—ME Carter never set out to write books. But when a friend practically forced a copy of Twilight into her hands, the love of the written word she had lost as a child was rekindled. With a story always rolling around in her head, it should come as no surprise that she finally started putting them on paper. She lives in Texas with her four children, Mary, Elizabeth, Carter and Bug, who sadly was born long after her pen name was created, and will probably need extensive therapy because of it.
