BLURB

Software billionaire Carly Flanagan has an abundance of everything except time.

With everyone wanting a piece of her, or more accurately, her money, she spends her days trying to live up to her company’s motto of Community, Sharing, Support. Having always been so focused on responsibility, success and supporting those less fortunate than her, Carly’s forgotten to consider what she wants for herself in life – until she meets Evan.

Evan Hayes is an artist and free spirit, and when they meet at a local art exhibition, he is immediately intrigued by Carly. He sees through her public persona, realizing she is not the person she portrays. Evan’s the type of man who doesn’t have a lot, but is perfectly comfortable with who he is. A man who knows what he wants – and he wants Carly.

Carly is sure Evan wants something else from her. Everyone does. All Evan is asking is the chance to get to know her, but will Carly let him in? Or will a lifetime of protecting herself prove too hard to overcome?

I had high expectations of Change of Heart stemming from Break the Rules, how the characters were developed within that story and of the story itself. I will admit I’m a little let down. The amount of naivety in COH is too much, sometimes coming off as childish.

When we’re first introduced to Evan we think strong driven man. He to seemed to soften too much for the story. Carly is a powerful business woman but claims to not know what she’s doing and faking it. I guess to a certain extent yes it’s plausible but to the capacity that’s depicted no.
At first you get a sense of a strong connection between Evan and Carly but it tends to become lacklustre before half way through. I get a stronger sense of friendship then lovers from this story.
I find the fact that Carly does all the meetings, absolutely everything for the business herself when she has executives too far fetched also. If they don’t have anything to do then why are they employed. It is good to read she lets go of some control, especially to Hayden. I liked Hayden.

The catalyst that created the drama was predictable, and rushed. One second everything is fine, then it’s not, then it is and bam the book is finished.
I did love the aspect of Teresa, Evans interaction with her, helping her embrace something she is good at.

In all the story was soft and fluffy, definitely good for a quick read between housework or going out.
