Promo Blitz + Review + GIVEAWAYS of Heartbeat by Elizabeth Scott

Displaying Heartbeat_PromoII.jpg


Emma would give anything to talk to her mother one last time. Tell her about her slipping grades, her anger with her stepfather, and the boy with the bad reputation who might be the only one Emma can be herself with.

But Emma can’t tell her mother anything. Because her mother is brain-dead and being kept alive by machines for the baby growing inside her.
Meeting bad-boy Caleb Harrison wouldn’t have interested Old Emma. But New Emma—the one who exists in a fog of grief, who no longer cares about school, whose only social outlet is her best friend Olivia—New Emma is startled by the connection she and Caleb forge. Feeling her own heart beat again wakes Emma from the grief that has grayed her existence. Is there hope for life after death—and maybe, for love?

Praise for Heartbeat

“An intense examination of a family coping with grief, this absorbing character study easily keeps pages turning.”

— Kirkus on Heartbeat

I was highly and pleasantly surprised by Heartbeat. Before I actually dived into the book I was skeptical.. I wasn't wow'ed by the blurb but I'm really glad I didn't judge the book by that. I really loved the cover! It fits the book perfectly!

Heartbeat is heart-breaking, frustrating, tear-jerking, funny, and then finally we get the swoony moments. My emotions were all over the place.. I couldn't figure out how I felt about the whole situation. I really don't know how I would react if I were ever in a situation as Emma was. I understand her frustration, I understand she just lost her mother and she is angry at the world that she lost her. I couldn't even imagine how she must be feeling.

The writing is great. The subjects were controversial and I think it was handled pretty well. I don't think a lot of other people feel the same way.. but the thing to remember is this is a 17 year old young lady dealing with the loss of her mother. She's hurt and confused, she feels like she should have spent more time with her mother. She is left with her step-father Dan, who never really talked to her about his decisions. Emma wanted to feel included in the decisions. All in all it works out. She has Caleb her swoony Mr. Bad Boy. Those two balanced each other out and were able to there for each other to work through it all.

I really am glad I read this book and was given the opportunity to read an early copy. Thank you Elizabeth Scott for writing this! And thank you Kismet Book Touring for hosting the promo blitz!

I give this book 5 awesome stars!!
