Review: A Humble Heart by R.L. Mathewson

Book Description: 

After wasting too many years on the wrong guy, Dana frees herself and her two children to live her dream.When she's forced to deal with paparazzi, offers from porn companies, magazines, Hollywood and crazed fans Dana does everything she can to keep it together for her kids. She never dreamed she'd catch the eye of the most sought after bachelor in the world. Things like that just didn't happen to women like her, or did they?

Having a life? What the hell was that? Edward couldn't remember what it felt like to live his own life without someone watching his every move. Thanks to the paparazzi and the internet nothing in his life was sacred. Out of desperation to keep some semblance of a life he stops living his own. His family and work are all he has left until he's made an offer he simply can't resist. Working with the famous author forces him to open his heart and take a chance. Winning the heart of the woman he loves while the world watches is anything but easy, but he never thought it would be dangerous. His only hope is that they get through it together.....and alive.

Once I started this book, I couldn’t put it down! I worried that I wouldn’t like this book because the description didn’t instantly grab me but I had nothing to worry about. This was classic Mathewson.

I loved Edward and Dana as a couple. They had great chemistry and were a great team. This is tone time that there wasn’t much of a friendship before the couple got together and as much as I’ve enjoyed that in the past R.L. Mathewson books, the lack of friendship worked here. Don’t get me wrong, there was a “friendship” that was built up before they admitted their feelings to each other, but it wasn’t anything like the previous books.

Edward was great with Dana’s kids, Cole and Elizabeth, a natural father. It was nice to see him take to the kids so quickly and care about their happiness and welfare. I loved the scene where Edward met Jeff for the first time. You could clearly see who the kids’ father figure was.

For me, this ranks up at the top of Mathewson’s books. In a way, it was refreshing that even with all the crap Dana and Edward went through, they had no breakups. There were no separations due to miscommunications or male stupidity. I kept expecting something to happen to tear them apart but I was pleased that they stayed together. From start to finish this book was action packed and drama filled. I can’t remember the last time a fictional couple had to go through so much before they got their HEA, while staying together.

Overall, this was an extremely enjoyable book that kept me hooked long into the night until I finished the book.
