Matters of the Hart is M.E. Carter’s best work yet. I cried, I laughed, I held my breath. Carter made me feel every emotion possible throughout this book. Matters of the Hart was so beautifully written. Once I picked it up, I could NOT put it down. Unfortunate circumstances may have brought the main characters together, but they both grow as people because of these circumstances. They overcome so much together and their love is so touching and sweet. At one key point in the book, I swear Carter *micdropped* The scene was just so perfectly displayed and the emotions were so real. This is a book I will re-read because it made me feel so many things, and I want to experience that again.

I loved Matters of the Hart, a beautifully written, heart wrenching story due to the sensitive subject matter it deals with. This is the third book in the Hart series, featuring Jaxson Hart; it’s an emotional story that had me crying at times, laughing more than once, and just incredibly happy with the perfect ending! **PLEASE, please note: Anyone with triggers should ask someone who’s read it, if they have questions about the sensitive subject matter, before starting this book. Do not take this warning lightly. Jaxson Hart, twenty-one, is the son of retired football legend, Jason Hart. He’s on the college football practice team, never playing on game day, something that doesn’t bother him; he loves the sport but knows his limitations and is okay with it. After deciding to switch majors, from business to pre-med, he’s a little concerned about telling his dad. They’ve been having some personal family issues lately and it’s been causing a rift between them. Annika Leander, nineteen, is a happy to be at school, rooming with her best friend, Lauren. Annika’s smart and studious; she wants to be a physical therapist, working for a football team. And she’s excited to be away from her loving, but over protective, dad and older brother. When Annika, who’s never been one to go out much, is dragged along to a local nightclub by Lauren, she never expected the night to end with her in the hospital, a victim of a horrible crime. There she meets Jaxson who was a witness to what happened to her and rescued her. “We tried to get him to leave several times to rest, but he keeps saying until he knows someone is here to take care of you, he’s not going anywhere.” Jaxson is that guy. The honest to goodness, kind hearted and thoughtful guy, a real life hero. He feels the need to protect Annika and when they start spending time together they can’t deny the attraction they both feel and have been afraid to acknowledge. He’s amazed at her resilience and strength, and she feels safe and protected with him by her side. “Right now, I feel safer with you than anyone else in this entire world.” This story had me on the edge of my seat at times, there’s so much more than just what happened to Annika; Jaxson’s life feels like it’s slowly unraveling as he has to come to grips with some big issues from his past he was unaware of. This is a one-hundred percent HEA that made me cry tears of joy at the en

If I could give this 10 stars I would. Matters of the Hart follows Jaxon Hart in his junior year of college. I spent about half of this book in tears - Carter has such a gift in developing her characters in a real, personal, and relatable way. She did it again with Matters of the Hart; these are my favorite characters of her. Jaxon has this soft, brave, bold personality and comes into his own and finds his voice throughout this story. And Annika. Wow, Annika. She is fierce, strong, and SO worthy. While this was a tough read to get through because of the subject matter; this is a book that everyone needs to read. I will shout it from the rooftops - this NEEDS to be read and heard! This is Carter's best work, in my humble opinion, and Annika and Jaxon's story will stay with me for a long, long time.

As ME Carter is so good at doing, she surprised me, this time with the circumstances surrounding Jax and Annika's relationship. I have never read a book with this storyline before. Jax and Annika are so real, and I was so invested in the characters that I couldn't stop turning the pages. This is a beautiful story of love but also of how we can help strengthen each other in the most difficult of times. My heart broke for Jax and Annika, and in the end I was overjoyed for them. Carter continues to amaze me with her ability to write new and unique novels and to keep the reader mentally and emotionally invested. This is a must read for 2018!

Okay, I will be honest. I have not read the first two books in this series yet. They are sitting on my shelf just waiting but for some reason I haven't picked them up yet. That changes very soon after reading this one. This book is easily my second favorite of Carter's work and probably her best work to date. She was able to pull all the emotions out of me and did it with such grace that I didn't even realize what was happening. There are some tough spots in this book but let me tell you, like my favorite book, Carter wrote those scenes seamlessly and with compassion. She made you feel what the characters were feeling. I won't go into much more on this as I don't want to spoil anything but don't miss this one. It's worth every angry, sad tear and definitely worth the smiles and heartwarming strength.

Oh my heart! This book is fantastic and has surpassed all others of its type for me this year! M.E. Carter has her finger on the pulse of current events and brings them to life in the most absorbing way possible. You’ll laugh a little and cry a lot. Your heart will swell with emotion and you’ll definitely commiserate with these characters as well. No need to think about this one. You absolutely DO want to read it. Right now. Don’t wait!

Before I begin my review of Matters of the Hart, I have a confession to make... I didn't read the second book in the series. I know, I know. I'm crazy, right? But almost every reader has that one thing that triggers them. The one style of book that they just can't handle reading, and for me, it just happened to be the subject matter of Hart to Heart. But honestly, maybe it's a good thing? Because if you haven't read the second book, or even the first book (which I did read and only gave three stars), then here is an honest opinion from a somewhat outside perspective for you. Matters of the Hart was really really good. From the second I started the book, I fell in love with the characters. And while Jaxon was great, Annika was even more amazing. I connected with her so deeply that she has become one of my favorite female characters of all time. And while the subject matter of this book may also be a trigger for certain people, I can promise you that it is done in the most genuine of ways. It isn't an easy read, but it an amazing story, and I got lost in the characters and invested in their lives. It's a beautiful depiction of how being broken can actually make you stronger. I don't want to give anything away, so I won't say any more about the story. But as someone who is an extremely tough reviewer, this book is most definitely worth the read. I haven't read anything this powerful since "It Ends With Us" by Colleen Hoover. Everyone needs to read this book. You had me at the hashtag on this one, ME Carter, and I can't wait to see what you come up with next.

I spent 1/3 of the time reading this book through tears. This book is the third instalment in the Hart series, and it was an emotional and heartbreaking read. And in saying so I absolutely LOVED reading it. It was relatable, realistic and moving. I can relate to Annika and her mentality of 'preparation', every girl in all of our lives are taught to always be vigilant, to learn how to defend ourselves, to be smart and careful. Life is doesn't care about any of that. This book for me represent like so many others like it, a part of a movement, a part in our national and international discussions and discourse that we need to have. Jax and Annika's story was really beautifully told. I cannot begin to express how much I loved how they developed as characters, the story was not centred around their growth per se, but the incidents still made me realise that they have changed from who they were before. I loved seeing them together and growing closer. This is Carter's best work to date, it has even replaced Groupie in my #1 spot, which I didn't think was possible, but when an author writes a poignantly beautiful and touching book, how can it not become your favourite? I highly recommend this, beyond a shadow of a doubt, the best book so far.
