On the outside rich and successful Gabe Paterson has everything.
No one would guess the ghosts from his past are tearing him apart.
Desperate, he reaches out to Elena – a resilient call girl, with her own childhood scars – for help.
In their moments of honesty, the two forge the most surprising relationship of their lives.
But will they be brave enough to make it into something more?
When I started reading The Heart of It, I wasn’t sure what to expect. The story is that of Gabe Paterson, who was abused as a child by someone he was close to. In a desperate attempt to forge intimate relationships without the aid of alcohol, he turns to a high-priced call girl.
What I loved about this story was the fact that even though Gabe experienced something truly awful, he is still a caring and compassionate man. Elena has her own childhood issues that she hasn’t really faced. But together in a moment of pure selflessness, they push each other to truly face their pasts.
It’s true their pasts will always be a part of them, making them who they are today. But The Heart of It shows that you can overcome your past and have a happy, healthy life. This is a happy for now story but my imagination is in overdrive, imagining these two being together forever.
