The Lion Heart by Carrie Aarons

by books and moods

A lion … that’s what I’ve come to think of Kingston as. He might as well be a prince of England, the lion is a national symbol. Fiercely loyal to those who he deems worthy, and brute in his passion for what he wants to protect.

Pain and trauma can define you as a person, how you handle it and how you let it control you. This is one of the things that attracted Poppy and Kingston to each other, all the pain they suffered from such a young age, both with different experiences but with the same result. Pain that let them broken until they found each other. At the beginning nothing made sense between them, but after some time and life circumstances everything began to fit and together they started to heal and be better for each other.

Kingston is funny, protective with the ones he love, understanding and wild, but that’s just a few of the reasons you are going to love him.

"I want to be better. You make me want to be better.”

“Together. You and I are better together.”

Poppy is a brave, strong and independent woman with a tragic past that left her with trust issues, especially with men.

Both of them had to grew up faster than normal people, because of their jobs, their pasts and family. Their imperfect qualities and flaws made them good for each other.

This story is a journey about pain, healing, trust, friendship and love. The theme touched in the book was a delicate one but even though it was handled good it felt it was more of the same, I also didn’t connect with the characters as much as I’d had liked to and the climax of the book didn’t make much sense to me, the problem with the main characters felt a little loose and sometimes a little boring.

Overall it was an average read, it was light and entertaining at times.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
