From the balcony of his house, Mike Haines can see the quiet, commonplace beauty of the Holliday farm. But what he remembers is the little sister of his high school girlfriend, Dusty, who grew up there. As a teen, Dusty had gone off the rails but when she was a kid, she was sweet, she was funny, and she had a special bond with Mike. But after high school, she took off and Mike never saw her again. Then tragedy strikes Dusty's family, she comes back into town and Mike thinks she hasn't changed back to the sweet, funny girl he knew but instead continued to be selfish and thoughtless, leaving her family alone to deal with their mourning. So he seeks her out and confronts her in an effort to understand what went wrong and to force her to sort herself out. He finds out quickly he's wrong about Dusty Holliday. Very wrong. And right after Mike discovers that, the bond they had years before snaps back into place in ways he would never suspect.

One of Kristen Ashley finest pieces of work!!!! It's like two stories in one....who doesn't love good value for money!!!!

Having read this in print more times than I should actually admit to......I thought I'd see if I could achieve getting anything done.....(so hard to get housework,shopping etc. whilst having my nose constantly stuck in a book) and WOW two days later I have a tidy house and painted my whole garden fence!!!! So going to start turning all my favourites of hers into audible..... next up Tate,Ty,Tanner and my all time fave Hank xxx

solid story line

What made the experience of listening to Games of the Heart the most enjoyable?

The development of the story line and the re introduction of the previous characters in this series the way they were naturally woven into the pages of the unfolding novel.


What did you like best about this story?

The way Mike realised that he had made wrong assumptions three times by jumping to some assumptions without talking to her.


Which scene did you most enjoy?

The way he introduced a new woman into his childrens lives and the way they seamlessly accepted her.


Any additional comments?

An enjoyable read in this Burg series...but you do need to read them in order to understand some of the other characters personalities and relationships.
