Blog Tour, 5 Star Review, & #Giveaway The Shape of My Heart by @MsAnnAguirre @InkSlingerPR

 The Shape of My Heart
By Anne Aguire
Release Date: November 25, 2014
Genre: New Adult Romance

Synopsis:

Some people wait decades to meet their soul mate. Courtney Kaufman suspects she met hers in high school—only to lose him at seventeen. Since then, Courtney’s social life has been a series of meaningless encounters, though she’s made a few close friends along the way. Especially her roommate, Max Cooper, who oozes damaged bad-boy vibes from every pore.
Max knows about feeling lost and trying to move beyond the pain—he’s been on his own since he was sixteen. Now it’s time to find out if he can ever go home again, and Courtney’s the only one he trusts to go with him. But the trip to Providence could change everything…because the more time he spends with Courtney, the harder it is to reconcile what he wants and what he thinks he deserves.
It started out so simple. One misfit helping another. Now Max will do anything to show Courtney that for every heart that’s ever been broken, there’s another that can make it complete.

Review- 5 Stars

I have really loved this series (all of them can be read as standalones) and this book was a fantastic way to close it out. Courtney and Max are such great characters and I loved taking this journey with them.
          Courtney had me laughing from the first pages. She is pretty hysterical. Her sense of humor is dry at times, and just plain comical others. At the same, time, her humor is her way of deflecting awkward and/or hurtful situations. Her heart is huge and she has such caring for those around her that she just wants to make them laugh and smile instead of hurt. However, the humor is also a deflection from her own insecurities. I ached for her acceptance of herself, refusing to see that there is beauty in her looks as well as personality. It was so great to see Max bring out a sense of self-worth in her. But then, she did the same for him.
          Max is one of the sweetest heroes I’ve come across in a novel. That’s not to say that he isn’t masculine, and trust me, he’s got plenty of alpha sexiness going on. But, Courtney bring out the mushy side as well as the caveman. I just melted at all of the little things he would say to her and the way he looked at her like she was the sun. He had a really crappy home life as a child and had been on his own since he was 16. He was truly a testament to pulling yourself up by your bootstraps. It’s not a common tale for someone who has been dealt a situation like his to find a way to succeed and particularly to graduate from college. Underneath his strength and bravado though, is an insecurity that rivals, if not exceeds Courtney’s. He finds acceptance and love in Courtney and it gives him the contentment and peace of knowing that you are everything to someone else, just the way you are.
          This love story is sweet, but that doesn’t mean it won’t rip your heart out. So be prepared because this author knows how to bring on the angst. But, for every minute of heartache there are two minutes of warm fuzzy feelings. These two are a really fun couple and I enjoyed their story on every page.
          As the end of a series, I appreciated the little snippet at the end of everyone else’s lives. I’m sad to see this group go, but I am overjoyed to put the book away knowing that Max and Courtney have the best kind of happily ever after.

          5 Stars for every moment! 5.5 Stars for every sweet thing that Max did or said… He’s just so dreamy…


Make sure you grab the entire 2B Trilogy!
