Would you defy family for love?
Sam lost her biological parents at age five and was adopted into a loving family soon after. She has three overprotective brothers, their three best friends and two loving parents. Their world is turned upside down when their parents are killed in a car crash. Not wanting the family to split up her oldest brother, Craig, becomes her and her brothers legal guardian. Sam loves her older brother but he is the most overprotective of them all. Especially when he sees her and their long time friend, Jason, growing closer.
Sam denies that she has feelings for Jason but everyone else can see it (except Jason.) Her brother John says she’s afraid Craig won’t approve. It’s true, Sam is worried about that, but is that all that’s holding her back?
She doesn’t want to upset her older brother but deep down she knows there’s another reason for her denial. Sam has experienced so much loss, can she overcome that and open her heart? Even if she can, will Craig stand between them? What will she do if he does?
Praise for My Heart is Yours
I had the pleasure of reading My Heart Is Yours while in beta phase and it truly is one of the most genuine and heart felt stories I’ve read in a long time. Not only does author Amanda Leigh entwine different character POV’s beautifully, but she also grabs your attention with the perils of broken homes, first love and the truths that it awaken within the heart. I instantly fell in love with Amanda’s characters and their fierce bond within one another as they struggled to overcome obstacles and boundaries that tested their strength, heart and continuous belief that love is the strongest bond of all. It needs to be said, My Heart Is Yours will leave you will all kinds of feels!!! My Heart is Yours is a romantic, exciting and charismatic read. One that will stay with you long after the last page is turned.

If I had to sum up in one word what this book was about, it would be LOVE. Love in the midst of tragedy, love in the midst of hardship, love in the midst of adversity, love with family, love with friends, and love within love.
– Christina, Once Untold
Raw. Emotional. Brave. A touched heart + soul.. Perfect story. I can finally breathe a sigh of relief, relief that there is a book out there that is so soulful and breathtakingly good.

Friends to lovers have got to be one of my favourite types of romances, along with forbidden romances. So Sam and Jason’s romance was the perfect mix of these two themes.

I loved this story… I grew up with my brothers so I could relate to Sam’s “only girl in a house of boys” feeling. Obviously, I don’t want to give anything about the story away but, at the same time, I have to reveal that Sam’s insecurity about love and journey to becoming open to positive energy in life (after so much negativity in her early years) was another reason I felt so attached to Sam, as a character. Her brothers are fun and protective, just as I imagine a house of men would be with a younger sister. So fun to go back to that uncertain and anxious time in my own life. Thank you, Amanda!!
