    ☆☆☆☆☆ 5+ STARS ☆☆☆☆☆Fumbled Hearts was such a refreshing read. I love it. Page after page, I couldn’t get enough. What a strong and a sure hit for new author Meagan Brandy. She sure made a fan out me, with her first book. I love her characters and how matured, they were for teenagers. Heroine Kalani is such a strong character. She was independent, witty, fun, sarcastic, bold and beautiful. I also love her unique name, even h...

    dnf ~ 10 %There's so much wrong with this book. I can't force myself to read on. The H has already slept with two different girls. Side note: We're on page 30 ....Both times the h sees him and makes some bad ass comments. Side note: She's not bad ass. Not at all.The h tells everyone that she's not like any other girl [insert eye rolling here]. She doesn't care about her looks but can't help admiring herself in the mirror (after some unnecessary t...

    IT’S 2018 AND AUTHORS ARE STILL BASING THEIR PLOTS ON GIRLS ATTACKING GIRLS[image error]This book drove me wild, and not in a ”Oh my god Tom Holland is standing right in front of me” kind of way. It was more like ”Oh my god these characters need pushing off a cliff” kind of way.If I go into detail for everything that’s wrong with this book, this is gonna be one long review. So I’ll try and keep it short and sweet for ya, but I make ...

    Gotta start off by saying I cannot believe this is Meagan's debut book. It is EVERYTHING I want in a NA read. Kalani is a fierce, funny and somewhat broken teenager who has had to grow up way before her time. She is independent, loyal, smart and beautiful. I loved everything about her character and her backstory. Nate is the QB - seemingly the typical high school man whore, big man in town and perfect son. When the two meet sparks fly and the gam...

StarsLoaded with all the turmoil and feels of a broken soul, the swoon of young love, and swagger of a high school jock my heart was certainly fumbling head over heels in love with Meagan Brandy's DEBUT novel!!

    This is a hard book for me to review. Parts of it I really enjoyed and other parts not so much. Lately I have been finding it hard to find books that hold my attention from start to finish but Fumbled Hearts definitely did. It was a longer read and yet it never felt like it. I would have even been happy to read more. It was kind of addictive even when there was drama. Sometimes there was way too much of it for my liking though. I found it hard to...

    Ahhhh...am I in a different universe,how did this book get so many 5 starreviews? Am I missing something?This is my WORST READ OF THE YEAR,maybe ever. It was an insult to myintelligence. First, do we need to giveeveryone a nick name? Or a differentname than the one they were born with?So we have Kalani, or Lolli or Lolli Bear,who is this girl? Is she 19 or 40? Justcomplete and utter stupidity. I amnot going to rant, and rant, like I soowant to do...

    So if I had to sum it up...GAH!!! The devilishly handsome playboy meets the sassy broken girl and well, HOLY TIGHT FOOTBALL PANTS THIS WAS AMAZING!! I immediately fell in love with "Lolli" what can I say I'm a sucker for a gal who's an utter hot mess by all means of the word. Cocky Nate has no idea what wild ride he's about to be taken on. Opposite worlds collide in the BEST OF WAYS! The passion was consuming, the sexy bits were 🔥🔥 and the ...

    DNF at 53%They just had unprotected shower sex after his mom reminded him about condoms, and didn’t have a talk about birth control at all. Nevermind the fact that Nate slept with a lot of women and we don’t know much about Kalani‘s sexual past. I don’t care that he pulled out. Precum is enough to get pregnant. And what about STDs? If you didn’t get tested, and you didn’t have the birth control talk, no unprotected sex. Easy as that. ...

    Brilliant debut novelThis book came highly recommended to me from one of my closest friends and I am so glad I listened to her and took a chance on this book. It is by far and away one of the best debut novels that I've ever read. I loved every single thing about this book and didn't want it to end!!! I am speechless in the best way possible and I don't know how I will be able to read anything else after this. It was just brilliant and EVERYTHING...

    Debut novel.Sports romance.NA.Heroine with a secret emo past. Dick swinging hero. What's not to like! I probably wouldn't have picked this one up if not for a lot of recs from friends and I'm so glad I listened because it was cute and great and I didn't stop reading until the last word. I can see why it has mixed reviews. People get up in arms about "slut shaming" but it doesn't bother me. it's not one of my book pet peeves. Nor is a manslut of a...

    Wow. Addicting. Female lead that doesn't play games and says it like it is. Male lead that finds his worth through the bright blue eyes of sassy said girl. Lies, innuendos and the always present school skank. Again addicting. So so addicting. Can't wait for more. Full non-ranty review to follow!Full Review--->Fumbled Hearts by Meagan Brandy

    First and foremost, this is a superb NA book for a debut. This book was so good and kept me hooked till the very end. I fell in love with Kalani. Her story was so sad and I loved the kind of girl she was after her tragedy. Nate was super cute and a hunk. His focus on Kalani was so sweet. I loved how he handled her and gave her her space. The author has captured the essence of NA and this story had everything!!! Loved it!ARC generously provided by...

    Wow. This is one of those books that had me gripped from the beginning. A poweful story line and you can not help but love Kalani. Full of sass but a lot of pain. The definition of independant woman. And Nate..... well you cant help but love him either. Playboy turned whipped. This story wrapped around my heart like a vice and i actually shed a tear towards the end. That was a feat in itself. Just amazing!

    Addictive Debut Novel Alert To say I gulped down Fumbled Hearts was an understatement. I could have happily read 400 more pages of Nate and Kalani's newfound love. This coming of age story of a strong, feisty and internally heartbroken girl and the town's star manslutting football player was everything I crave from a NA Sports romance novel. Kalani is a heroine I loved instantly, she's an independent, brave, lonely girl who has had to deal with ...

    What a fabulous debut novel by Meagan Brandy. This love story encompasses every emotion under the sun. Happiness, sadness, anger, redemption, angst, you name it you've got it! The fabulous part of Meagan's storytelling is she moves through all of these emotions flawlessly. You want more and more from these characters as the story progresses, and she delivers every step of the way.I was so engaged with Kalani and Nate from the very beginning, the ...

    Fumbled Hearts was a duet novel by Meagan Brandy and I LOVED it so much! The author absolutely nailed this story and characters! Nate and Kalani story has completely stolen my heart. This story was everything I could have wanted and more in a NA Sports Romance. A broken girl with sass for days, a handsome playboy quarterback turn opposites attract up in the most consuming way. This book was a perfectly spun web of vulnerability, passion, and heal...

    Review by: Candice Marie I really enjoyed this book! I love a good sports romance and this book really delivered!It was unique in that it wasn’t your typical girl pines for hot guy trope, and it was refreshing for it to be the other way around for once.I did find the characters to be a little young for my personal taste, and found it a tad bit unbelievable that all these 16 and 17-year olds were free to roam, get drunk, and go on lavish vacatio...

It's beautiful and heart achy and gorgeous and I'm already awaiting more from these two. Nate is perfect.Kalani is one of those rare heroines I loved and I became completely entangled in her story and healing. The story was well paced and a tad angsty towards the end with a misunderstanding expected of teenagers. I'd definite...

    Debut Novel by this author and I was completely blown away by her writing and this story. I wasn't completely sure how I was going to like reading a story revolving around high school, but this story sucked me in and made me forget about the ages. I can't wait to see what's next from her.

    5 FUMBLED HEARTS STARS!! This debut book was a touchdown in my heart. This story pulled on my heartstrings, it was so beautifully written with all the feels. Kalani is a beautiful broken young woman with lots of attitude. Nate is that hot high school quarterback that every girl wants and he plays the field well. I enjoyed seeing their stories be told, I could not read it fast enough. I can't wait to read more book by Meagan Brandy with her beauti...

    Wow, an amazing first book by Meagan Brandy. Kalani (lolli), is my kind of female lead. She’s a sassy tough cookie and takes no crap. I hate a snivelling woman in books, so this was right up my street.Nate is the sexy footballer that is a bit of a player. Hugh Hefner wanna be, aren’t they always! 😂 Together they are sizzling hot! I love a book with moments that make me giggle. When my husband sees me laughing at my kindle, that’s the sig...

    What a great read :) I love Kalani generally as a character.. one of the boys, honest, but numb. Poor Kalani hasn’t had a great couple of years, and reading her story, pulled me into the book. I cared what happened. Nate.. what can I say about Nate... jock, Alpha man whore! But surprising just what Kalani needs. Very well written, great characters, would definitely recommend.Is there going to be more of these two? Are we going to read and learn...

    Reviewed by [email protected] Stars ReviewsThis is not your typical YA/NA book. It was a breath of fresh air, honestly. I really loved Kalani, she was an extremely strong character, and I enjoyed her relationship with the hero as well. There were a few things that bugged me, but other than that I thought this was really good, and I loved the drama and other issues as well. I wouldn't mind reading more of this series.

    There are moments in time when two souls meet, moments when destiny has played a role in the game of life. He was her light in the dark. She was his spark that set his heart and soul on fire. They had instant chemistry and when it erupted it was a smolder like no other. Kalani - by Hawaiian definition is sea and sky. She's a pixie that is feisty, has no filter, is a firecracker, and is broken almost beyond repair due to events that happened on he...
