    ☆☆☆☆☆ 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 ...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...

    Really good! Good dose of angst, drama and other kind of crazyness!!!Those kind of books almost give me heartburn and I dont know why I do it to myself and keep on picking them up, knowing that I dont have the stomach for the angst and drama, but Im like a junkie that just keeps coming back and cant give it up!

    ARC received for an honest review.Another manic book rambling brought to you by April;Read & Share Book Reviews.5 'Let me wake you up.' 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!! Consumed and mesmerized, I was addicted from the first chapter and couldn't put this book down until it...
  • Nicla
    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...
  • S.K.
    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 ...

    ***AVAILABLE NOW - AUDIOBOOK REVIEW***Loved it!! Loved it so much. It is all the YA drama that I need in my life.The narrators were good, not my favorites, but it didn’t distract me from the story. I really enjoyed the pacing and the drama. The characters are perfect. I loved the background of each and the tie in with football. The chemistry was good and I love how Nate chased her. This was the last Meagan Brandy book I needed to read, and it h...

    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...

    Are you freaking kidding me right now?! Brand spanking new author debuting a book like this! What an amazing flipping story and the characters...eep! I FLOVE Nate and Lolli!

  • ~Dawn~TUG
    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
  • Katy Birch
    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!
  • V. Theia
    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 ...

  • Crazychriss889
    Not amused...This book starts out with a whole lot of slut-shaming... Sure, the heroine chastises herself for being a judgmental bitch for criticizing and judging others based on what she is seeing at a party but it sounds more like: can you really blame me for slut-shaming when all the girls are scantily dressed and throw themselves at guys? I guess it is going to Take a long, long, long, long, long time for us to finally get to the point where ...
  • Cindy M. Green
    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 ...
  • Kayla
    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...
  • Sharon Mariampillai
    Thank you Sharon J for recommending this book to me. This was an incredible read. The storyline was amazing. I thought there were moments where I wanted to laugh, and other moments where I wanted to cry. The characters were fantastic. Kalani aka Lolli is a sassy, takes nobody shit type of person. She also does what she wants when she wants. Nathaniel aka Nate is the star quarterback. He is also a bit of a player but he has shown that when he sees...

    4.5 it touched my heart starts An awesome AWESOME debut novel!! My god, I fell hard in love with Kalani and Nate! So hard. 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...
  • Melissa
    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.
  • Rhonda Ziglar
    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...
  • Laura
    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...
  • Tracy Trixy
    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...
