She gave me her kidney. I gave her my heart…
Nicholas Blake learned a long time ago that nobody does anything for free. He’s felt the pain of lies and manipulations enough times to know that people only look out for themselves, and that all good deeds come with a price. So when he wakes up from a near deadly car accident and finds out a stranger is offering to donate her kidney, he’s immediately suspicious of her intentions.
What he doesn’t expect is Iris Chamberlain, a beautiful woman with a big smile and an even bigger heart, claiming she just wants to help. The more time Nick spends with Iris, the more he starts to believe in what he always thought was impossible: a pure heart.

But betrayal leaves a bitter mark. Will Nick be able to let go of his past and let Iris in? And will Iris be able to show him what it truly means to have a pure heart?


*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***

Pure Hearts by Jeannie Allison was an emotional read that didn’t take long to absorb me into the story. I like the premise of the story I found it interesting and certainly gave me something to think about. It was a heartfelt and poignant story about hope, faith, trust and love.

Nick and Iris where opposite really Iris had a kind soul, saw the good in everything and tried to live her life to the fullest. Nick maybe due to his past not so much don’t get me wrong he has a kind soul, but unlike Iris he keeps it guarded. Nick and Iris are perfect for each other. I love the way they help each other to grow as the story progresses.

“She ripped apart my life – in the best way possible – and changed everything I thought I knew.”

“Nothing in this universe was a match for how he made me fell, for how I was starting to feel about him.”

I’m a strong believer in things happen for a reason, and I felt this story reflects that. Loved Nick’s mum Catharine and loved what the author did with the prologue and epilogue it added to the story. Loved the extended epilogue a lovely surprise.

Pure Hearts is a book I would recommend. It was a well-written book from both POVs that had the right amount of sexiness, romance and drama. This was my first book by this author, and it won’t be my last. I was impressed with her writing style and the flow of the story, and I could tell she had done her research to get the information correct. I’m slightly kicking myself that I have not read one her books sooner therefore looking forward to reading more from Jeannie Allison.


Jeannine Allison is an author of contemporary and New Adult romance. After waffling between many degrees in college, she finally graduated with a BA in English Literature from Arizona State University.
She loves writing and reading — obviously 🙂 — but when she’s not she enjoys playing with her two dogs, obsessing over new makeup, drinking coffee, googling new tattoos, and pretty much anything else that allows her to wear yoga pants and a sweatshirt 😉
She is a big fan of being exactly who you are. Her favorite stories to write are about characters finding and loving who they are.
