Product description

Product Description

Audra Madison simply wanted to walk in the shoes of Emily Cavanaugh, a free-spirited teenager who died too young. After all, Audra wasn’t supposed to be here.

Thanks to Emily, Audra has a second chance at life. She’s doing all the things that seemed impossible just two years ago: Go to college. Date. Stargaze in the Rocky Mountains. Maybe get a tattoo. You know, live.

Jake Cavanaugh, a photographer with mysterious, brooding gray eyes, agrees to help chronicle her newfound experiences. She makes him laugh, one of the only people who can these days. As they delve into each other’s pasts – and secrets – the closer they become.

But she’s guarded and feels like she can’t trust anyone, including herself.
And he’s struggling with the fact that his beloved sister’s heart beats inside her.

Audra Madison knows she's lucky to have gotten a second chance at life when she received Emily Cavanaugh's heart. Now she's determined not to let anything stand in her way of living life to the fullest and creating memories that Emily should have been experiencing. But first she needs someone to chronicle her journey and there's no one she'd rather want by her side than Jake Cavanaugh. He's a photographer and just happens to be Emily's brother. But when secrets from the past start to unravel and Audra finds herself unable to stop from wanting to help Jake discover the truth of what happened to his sister once and for all, will she lose the man she's falling in love with?

I'm not usually one to read New Adult Romance unless I really like the blurb, which I did for this book, so I'm glad I chose to read it as it was a delightful read full of plot twists that made me sympathize with everything Audra goes through that shows her life's too short. Right from the beginning, this story immediately drew me in because of what the heroine is going through and what she wants to do to honor the life of the teenage girl whose heart Audra ended up with to save her life.

The dialogue was intense due to the heroine's back story, believing she was going to die until she received a heart transplant. However, it was plot twists in what happens to Audra and what happens to the heroine's best friend that made this story a real page turner for me, even if they did make me cry. How much does the heroine have to endure before she finds happiness? Will she be able to help Jake overcome his past by finding the truth of what happened to his sister? Yet, there were also some light-hearted moments throughout this story that made me smile. Audra is good for Jake.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 what a debut stars 25 March 2017

The Heartbeat Hypothesis by Lindsey Frydman
4.5 stars!!!

“Our hearts have been friends for a very long time.”

The Heartbeat Hypothesis is the debut book of Lindsey Frydman and what a debut. As soon as I started reading this book I clicked with the story and the voice of the author, I then had to go back and check that this was in fact a debut and that is the biggest compliment. This story just flowed with ease, I was immediately transported into this NA gem and the author held me emotionally captive until the very end. Reading this book was effortless, emotional, captivating and I loved every single second.

“Everything is finite, isn’t it?
“Nothing lasts forever.”

When I have read “transplant” books in the past, more often than not the focus is always on the recipient and you never really hear much about the donor or the donor’ family. More often, never the twain shall meet, but sometimes they do keep in touch and The Heartbeat Hypothesis is not only a celebration of the life of the recipient but also that of the life of the donor. This side of the story was emotional for me, a life captured through pictures and yet I felt like I knew her and that is testament to the author.

“Sometimes grief is the price you pay for love.”

Audra was the lucky recipient of a heart at the expense of a young woman called Emily. Audra had reached out to Emily’s family and they had responded. Because of this she found out that Emily’s brother was at the same University as her and his name was Jake. Audra had also looked for any information regarding Emily, she wanted to know more about the heart that was beating inside her and because of her delving she came across Emily’s Instagram page. Emily’s Instagram was covered in whacky photo’s or random exploits that really brought her bubbly personality to life or were they just a front…a mask? These photos were taken by #MyFavoritePhotographerJake and were named her done-it list.

“Nothing in life is permanent. All of it will eventually disappear…Maybe we’re supposed to know that…accept it, and live our lives differently because of it. Rearrange our priorities based on the finite number of heartbeats we have left.”

Audra decided that she wanted to recreate Emily’s done-it’s as a kind of homage to the woman that had a given her life and it is here that Jake and Audra meet.

“And on bad days, when his aura of sadness blazed like an alarm he couldn’t turn off, I felt like I was doing everything wrong.”

Jake was a conundrum, one minute he was friendly, next he was detached, then he was curious, then he distanced himself. It was like someone was switching a light on and off constantly and you never knew what “Jake” was going to turn up. I was torn between his grief and him being uncomfortable knowing that his sisters heart was beating in the woman in front of him to him just being confused, insecure and hiding something. It was this raw honesty in Jake as a character that made him all the more intriguing. I was desperate to know the man underneath and I loved the way that Lindsey Frydman slowly lets us in.

“I thought I knew what loneliness was…But you can’t know lonely until you’ve lived the opposite.”

This is a story that will tug at every single heart string, from budding friendship to best friends, to grief, to guilt, to learning to move on from the past and embrace a future you never imagined you deserved. A book that has honest, real and relatable characters even if their lives are anything but. Lindsey Frydman delivered an exceptional read as a debut, a little towards the end I felt some plot lines were a little rushed hence the 0.5 deduction, but apart from that, this was a perfect read for me. I loved everything about it.
5.0 out of 5 stars New Adult and angst 13 April 2017

If you like New Adult and a boatload of angst and deep emotion, then this might be the book for you. The characters were typical of their age but had a ton of more mature problems they had to deal with. The writing was very well done and the romance progressed slowly and sweetly. I was glad to see this wasn't a book where they jumped into bed immediately with nothing but sex scene after sex scene. Their relationship was built on friendship and respect. That's something we don't get as often these days in romance. Nicely done Lindsey Frydman!

I was really excited about the way the author,Lindsey, has taken us into the life of this college girl. It was exciting and hopeful and allowed you to follow her as she searched for her happiness. Exciting read and so entertaining and it kept me wanting to read it all the way through in one night. An excellent debut book from a very talented writer. I am looking forward to her next book!

It's a fun and emotional story of second chance in life. A good plot and beautifully developed character.
I love how Audra embraced her second chance in life. And adore Jake for helping Audra recreate Emily's "done-it list" in honor of her memory.

Highly recommend! I voluntarily review this book!
