Week 22 Review: Things We Know By Heart

From Goodreads:
When Quinn Sullivan meets the recipient of her boyfriend's donated heart, the two form an unexpected connection.

After Quinn loses her boyfriend, Trent, in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs in hopes of picking up the pieces of her now-unrecognizable life. She hears back from some of them, but the person who received Trent's heart has remained silent. The essence of a person, she has always believed, is in the heart. If she finds Trent's, then maybe she can have peace once and for all. 

Risking everything in order to finally lay her memories to rest, Quinn goes outside the system to track down nineteen-year-old Colton Thomas—a guy whose life has been forever changed by this priceless gift. But what starts as an accidental run-in quickly develops into more, sparking an undeniable attraction. She doesn't want to give in to it—especially since he has no idea how they're connected—but their time together has made Quinn feel alive again. No matter how hard she's falling for Colton, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she's lost…and all that remains at stake. 

My Review:
This was such a fantastic book! I've enjoyed two of her other books-I need to read her 3rd-so I was expecting to like this book. And I did so much! It was such a great, epic book! I enjoyed so, so, so much, such a wonderful story it told!

I knew that it would be a slightly sad book, seeing that her boyfriend died, and she went looking for the recipient of his heart. And with the title, well, yeah, there was that aspect there! It was just so wonderful and mournful, working for a peaceful, resolved ending. And it got it!

What I really enjoyed, was the things that were above each chapter, excerpts of books about heart transplants and all the subjects related there, relating to what was going to happen in the chapter, and so much other things relating to the heart! So great!

I did feel bad for the situation that she found herself in. She was only going to see him, she wasn't going to meet him. And then she did, and there was nothing she could do, and then there were those perfect days and they feel in love, and she still had to tell her secret...yeah, not fun!

But they got a happy ending, and I enjoyed reading about it it so much, between Colton's medical issues, and her father's!
