Overview

At 24 years old, Jade Spencer's life has hit a brick wall. Haunted by the mysterious abandonment of her mother, she found it was easier to live in the shadows of someone elses expectations. From the strict authority of her grandmother, the unwillingly guardian to Jade and her brother, to a controlling fiance who she can't seem to please, denying her feelings has been a necessary coping mechanism. Reality has suddenly come crashing in under the strain of denying her own dreams for so long, and for once, Jade is ready to live life by her own rules.

It's time for a fresh start. Turning away from the disappointment of her past, Jade ditches her shady fiance and packs her bags for New York City. With help from her aunt, she looks forward to her new future, her fabulous apartment in the city, a new job, and new experiences. Two fated encounters complicate her world when they both lead to unexpected and powerful emotions. She struggles with her desire to embrace these new feelings, and her habit of denying what she truly wants. In this not so classic love triangle, with a hint of mystery, Jade learns the hard way that sometimes intentions can mean everything and nothing at all, and no matter how far you run from the past, it's never too far behind.

Will she find love or will she leave a trail of jaded hearts? Love, secrets, and lies are all on the menu.

Meet the Author

Olivia Linden was born in Queens, NY but raised in San Antonio, TX. Reading and writing were her passions from a very young age. At the age of 7, she submitted her first short story as a class assignment, that sparked her to explore her writing talents. Initially, she had dreams of becoming a teacher when she grew up, but the twist and turns of life brought her right back to writing. Currently living in Florida with her 10 year-old son, she has decided to make a career out of writing. Olivia's writing style takes after her personality in a big way. Her sometimes sarcastic, and usually humorous tone comes across in her stories. In reality, she prefers to laugh her way through even the toughest of situations. Life has taught her that laughing helps to feel better faster.
"You can cry and complain, but no one really wants to see that."

    What's a Lonely Heart to Do?

    Jade Spencer is in a relationship going nowhere. She needs a change, so she leaves her home to move to the Big Apple. The ride of her life begins. She’s torn between two men almost as soon as she arrives, one appearing to be the better choice. But is he? Julian or John - who's the correct fit? As the story unfolds there are many ups and downs, twists and turns, spontaneous encounters, long thought out discussions, soul searching, heart connections and it’s unclear who will win the jaded heart of Jade. Only time will tell, but there is much drama and excitement as Jade tries to find the cure for her jaded heart.

    I found Olivia Linden’s “Jaded Hearts” to be a great read. It held my attention. The sex scenes were hot and steamy. The only downfall was editing. There were a few words missing, the misspelling of a few words, and the author kind of rushed the ending. She left us hanging, so at this point, we really don't know who heals this lonely heart! I know there has to be a sequel and I will be patiently waiting for it, Ms. Linden. Great book keep up the good work.
