𝑩𝒍𝒖𝒓𝒃

Jackson Thorn was my best friend and worst enemy, but that didn’t stop me from wanting him.

From first words to high school halls, our childhood years braided a bond that wove in a direction neither of us could predict or outgrow.

Forbidden became a word we ignored.
It wasn’t that we didn’t care.
It was that we cared too much.

We had it all planned out.
We thought we could make it.
We thought we’d been careful.

But all we managed to do was prolong the inevitable.
Our destruction.

Hearts and Thorns is a standalone full-length new adult novel.

Confessions 5 Stars

It didn’t matter that I’d been his first. Not when I wanted to be all the in-betweens and his last too.

Hearts and Thorns by Ella Fields is book three in the amazing new adult Magnolia Cove Series. You guys I have been waiting for Jackson and Willa’s story ever since I first found out that it was going to be a “step-sibling” romance! I can’t tell you how much I have loved every single book from this series and all the characters included but I was REALLY looking forward to this one! As usual, Fields did NOT disappoint! I’m all about the taboo/forbidden and a stepbrother/stepsister romance is about as forbidden as it gets! Hearts and Thorns is NOT an easy read, but all the anguish and heartbreak is sooo worth it in the end.

HeartsAndThornsTeaser1

Jackson and Willa Thorn grew up in Magnolia Cove. Although they share the same surname and have been raised in the same household since the two of them were still in diapers, Jackson and Willa are STEP-siblings.

But Willa and Jackson weren’t your typical step siblings. The two of them shared a bond much closer than normal and have always been close.

But over the years, the dynamic of their relationship began to change as Jackson and Willa grew up.

Until…

One birthday. One moment. One kiss… changes EVERYTHING in the Thorn household.

Jackson and Willa tried not to let their ever-growing feelings cause heartache to their family so they ignored the feelings and hoped that with time, they would fade. But the love these two shared was not something that could be ignored and eventually, they give up trying to.

If hiding is all we’ve got, I’ll happily hide forever.

HeartsAndThornsTeaser7

Jackson and Willa try and keep their relationship under wraps, they know that their parents nor their small town would be able to accept a relationship between the two. But the lies and the sneaking around begins to build up until their secret is exposed.

When Jackson and Willa are forced apart, their plans for the future seem further away than ever before and when life begins to take them both in different directions… they are both left heartbroken. 💔

I hate you because I could never actually hate you, and that makes me hate you so much.

Can Jackson and Willa find their way back to each other?

Can Willa and Jackson beat the odds stacked against them?

You’ll have to check out Hearts and Thorns for yourself to find out.

No matter how much time passed, nor how hard I’d tried, I’d forever be in love with my stepbrother.

HeartsAndThornsTeaser3

I love that in Hearts and Thorns, we went through every stage along with Willa and Jackson. From them growing up together to the beginning of their feelings, to finally giving in to their feelings, to the mistakes that were made, the anger, and then the devastation and heartbreak. And then again, five years later as they finally found their way back to each other again.

I feel like I need you to breathe properly.

Jackson is… *SIGH* I loved Jackson, I really did. BUT, let me warn you now, once he’s been hurt, he has a mean streak. Some of the things he did or said to Willa were just plain cruel. They had BOTH been hurt. But his heartbreak and anguish in those moments… sheesh! I just wish he didn’t jump to conclusions so dang much! Teenagers! Smh…🤷‍♀️

In the battle of who hurt who the most, you fucking won, Willa.

Willa was such a sweetheart, even though there were a couple of things that totally shocked me that she would do… for starters (Todd…) but they were both hurt and I get it but I didn’t like it… But the way Willa’s Mom treated her after finding out about her and Jackson’s relationship… I was extremely shocked! Obviously, I didn’t think they would be pleased, but to do what they did and then pretty much completely remove her from their lives… yeah I felt so bad for her. Thank God for her bio-Dad though, he was great! And Willa made a life for herself, despite them.

HeartsAndThornsTeaser4

I didn’t think it would be this hard. Trying to breathe without you.

Even in the other Magnolia Cove books, when I first realized that there was always something MORE going on with Jackson and Willa, I have LOVED the two of them together. But to finally see all the stages of their love, *SIGH* Even though I wanted to shake BOTH of them for about 50% of the book! But I tried to remember that they were only eighteen when things started to fall apart but sooo much of their anguish and heartbreak could have been avoided if they had just TALKED to each other instead of jumping to conclusions or keeping things from one another.

But enough about, let’s get to the good stuff! The sexy scenes! Oh my, oh my! I mean, FORBIDDEN ROMANCE! Do I really need to say more? It’s forbidden, it’s hot, and Jackson… SMOKIN HOT!

HeartsAndThornsTeaser5

Ella Fields has no qualms about crushing a reader’s heart to smithereens. and that’s exactly what she does to you with Hearts and Thorns. She spends 50% of the book making you fall completely in love with these characters and rooting for them to somehow beat the odds and then just when you think they are RIGHT THERE, they are GOING to make it… she breaks them. And you in the process. Trust me, you are probably going to shed a few tears and you may even wanna break some stuff but I promise, you’ll still root for Jackson and Willa, and that ending will make it all worth it. As usual, BRAV-FREAKIN-O Ella Fields, I was sooo looking forward to Jackson and Willa and you freakin delivered!!

I absolutely recommend checking out Hearts and Thorns, as well as the rest of the Magnolia Cove Series. If you are looking for an emotional, heartwrenching and heartwarming, angsty read then look no further because you have found it!

We weren’t only soul mates. We were stitched at the seams, unable to part
without losing fragments of ourselves.
