In Case Of Heartbreak Emma Rose

Basketball has always been the thing that Dean Adams loved the most, but in the aftermath of a devastating accident, he finds the future he always dreamed of threatened by the reality that he may never play again.

That's when Katie Reynolds stumbles head first into his life, pushing him to re-evaluate his future, and see that not every situation is simply black and white. But with her own secrets tearing her up inside, there's only one thing they're both sure of - they're going to need each other to heal what's been broken.

I love new adult novels that are done well. The words and actions of the characters were real to what an actual college senior is like, which seems to be difficult for a lot of authors to get right. I think Dean and Katie's relationship was adorable, and both their struggles were heart-wrenching. I may or may not have cried more than once sitting at my desk at work.
I don't know much about college basketball, but I do know enough to find some of that stuff a bit unrealistic. There's a very good chance I'm wrong, but I feel like it wouldn't be the case that Dean could be starting (at Duke, especially) just a couple weeks after being cleared to play again. Especially when it seems that he was cleared around February and finals are very soon after that. Maybe double check some of the basketball stuff to make sure that's right?

Thanks for the feedback! And yeah, I'm pretty sure the timeline got a little bit messed up, so I'll definitely be sure to check on that :)

I liked the concept of the story. Girl meets boy. Boy has accident and isn't quite the same boy. I didn't mind that they moved slow. My complaint would be that there wasn't enough. . . .it just seemed to skim over the top of everything. I'd love to see more of a connection before the accident and more conflict after the accident. I did like how there was no cheating. No other people. It was just about her and him.

Thanks for the informative feedback! And yes, I try to stay well away from cheating in my novels, no matter the situation.

I'm diffently sticking around to see where it goes from here. The only thing I would have asked for is more of a connection between Katie and Dean. I was told there was a connection but I didn't feel it.

Loved this book!! Characters were interesting and they progressed and evolved in a way that made sense (sometimes characters change seemingly overnight in certain books, but you managed to avoid that). I thought Katie and Dean were WAY too co-dependent on one another, which made everything a little off-putting at times. I think it's fine for characters to need and love each other, but they kind of took it a step too far. There were also some grammar/spelling mistakes to fix in your next edit, but overall I'd say great job and please keep writing more!!

I loved the struggles the characters went through in the book and how realistic they were. However, while saying that, I thought the ending could use some added depth. It still warmed my heart but I felt it was a little out of tune. Still, an amazing read!

This book is a little like Me Before You with the premise of seeing you're life through a whole new lense. Lou and Katie both took a role of caretaker and had their own struggles. In addition, both Will and Dean had their lives majorly changed by one tragic event. With lots of other similarities as well, I love these two similar (but still different) novels.

I loved the story. I only saw 2 problems throughout: 1. at times you have an issue with using the wrong homophones, and 2. you used the phrases "lips pulled/twisted/etc up". I understand that you were indicating smiling but the phrase was really overused. Other than that, it was great!
