Sarah Matamoros can’t complain. After immigrating from Mexico when she was nine years old, she’s content with the life she’s made for herself in sunny San Diego. She works hard at her mother’s housecleaning service by day and spends the evenings with her quirky eight-year-old daughter, Grace.
From a very young age, Emory Owen had several concepts drilled into her head. Success is everything. Be the best. Fight your way to the top. Expectations were high in the Owen household and the world was watching. Born into a high society family, Emory never wanted for anything...at least anything money could buy. When she meets Sarah, hired to sort her mother’s home, her sterile life suddenly sparks into color.
But when the emotional logistics of combining two very different worlds proves to be too much, a terrifying turn of events spurs the question: If love exists, can it really find a way?

Cute quirky sweet love story
The story itself is not especially complicated or challenging, but it is an easy listen, very engaging and endearing. The dialogue fun and witty, the narrator Mia Chiaromonte brings out the characters and dialogue perfectly. The story itself I found a bit bland, and predictable, and I worried initially that it would not appeal to me but, the quirky nature of the story, the sweetness, dialogue and simple charms makes it well worth the listen.

I have read this book a few times and it remains one of my favourites. I was delighted to find it in the audio format. The author has an ear for dialogue and the banter between the central characters is believable and engagingly endearing without becoming saccharine. It is an unashamed feel good romance but a refreshingly well written one with characters you soon find yourself rooting for. The narrator has a lovely light voice and reads it well. Definitely recommended for listening to while walking your dog on a beautiful autumn day while wrapped up warmly in a scarf and your best woolly bobble hat! Enjoy!

With the exceptions of some over reliance on cliches and a senseless breakup which seemed quite contrived I liked it. Even with a slight man bad; woman good attitude this was a nice listen. It made six hours of landscaping go by almost quickly. Even for guys I can recommend this book. It was a pleasant experience if you can overlook some of the obvious faults. The four stars were earned.

Sweet Story, Witty Writing & Fantastic Narration
What I loved about Heart Block was the combination of great writing and the way the narrator captured the spirit of the characters. This story was sweet without too much drama which I generally prefer for romance novels. This is definitely a story I will listen to many times.
