for a reviewThis book contains 3 novellas I mean 3 really cute novellasEach story had a beautiful plot and a great combination of love friendship and fun Each story was linked to one another in such a subtle yet perfect way and i thought it was a terrific job by the author This book definitely made me smile and 'awww' Well I guess everything has its negatives and so does this book What I would have liked to see was details on the characters like their likes and dislikes their background and family etc I found it very hard to connect with the characters due to this I would have also liked it better if there had been a little details relating to the chemistry between the characters just to get a better look and feel of it This kinda made my excitement to the little happily ever after lesserThere were a lot of typos and other editing errors but I really really don't care because I think Dana did a wonderful job with self editing her book So it didn't bother me that much and I did not consider this in my rating of the bookI think this book will be adored among the younger readers pre teens maybe but nevertheless I enjoyed the pleasant flow of each story This is a very light read and not recommended for those looking for something strong and detailed or for major plot twists and all that sort of stuff Congratulations on a wonderful book Dana Hope to see of your works I received this book from the author Dana Burkey in exchange of an honest review Heart to Follow contains three novellas and I have to say they were cute and highly enjoyable They were very fast paced as novellas normally are and I honestly had a terrific time reading them Oh the three novellas are connected which I didn't know at the beginning but I loved it anyhow Just Pretending the first novella was about Cam a girl who has had a crush on Nick for over a year because they spent a whole summer together hanging out But then he's back with his girlfriend and Josh Cam's friend makes a plan to get the two together Rating 35 stars Changed? the second novella was about a girl named Summer and how she struggled with friends and emotions during her school year I can really tell without spoiling a bit So yeah I enjoy this one a bit than I did Just Pretending I loved Summer because she always made the right decision and she was always true to herselfRating 4 stars Stage Lights the last and third novella focused on Tessa one of Summer's friends and this one surprised me greatly It's true the previous stories were a bit predictable and I thought this one was gonna be as well but no It didn't end the way I thought it would and I'm happy than Dana Burkey surprised me Also as the title says this is focused a bit on the theater and Shakespeare What can go wrong?Rating 4 starsThe overall rating is 38 stars but I'm just upgrading it to 4 stars because I had a blast reading them They were short they were fluffy and I highly recommend them to anyone who likes contemporary novels or just simply wanna read something which is at the same time short and really nice And again thank you to Dana for letting me read her novellas This is my first YA novella series and I am so excited to share it with everyone I am happy to announce that the book has been re formatted and is now available not just on Kindle but also in paper form through both and Barnes and Nobles and is also available in audio book as well on Audiblecom Check out these two new formats and also take a moment to post any reviews on as well Thanks so much I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review You can view the original review at Genuine JennI really enjoyed this little YA series on Audiobook It was a fun listen to during my commute to work It is made up of 3 short novellas that are geared to preteenteen girls The narrator was pretty good and easy to follow along with There was one character in the first book that was super annoying and the narrator even gave this character that high pitched whinny voice that I can't stand It was great even though she was hard to handle haha The books are clean romance YAteen type where the main characters are starting to datehave crushes High school lifedrama first crushes The first book I have to say would be my favorite of them all as the story is fun with Cam really wanting to date Nick but playing girlfriend to Josh to see if Nick would want Cam It was super cliche but very cute I also loved the end Book two my next favorite as Summer falls for Nick and we find out about Nick and what really happened between him and Gina The books do have an ARC so you would have to read them to know the whole story line They have characters that are brought into the next The characters could be developed but the author does a good job as these are novellas vs longer novelsI do wish that the audiobook would tell you when you are starting the next book but it just gives a little break between chapters and books I would listen to another audiobook by this narrator and I would read from Dana Burkey I give this series a 35 out of 5 stars as it is a great younger teen series Best Short Stories This Year Why is there no 10 star option? VERY LONG REVIEWI honestly don't know what to say about this book I mean I loved it and wish I could give it than five startsJust Pretending was just plan awesome I read it twice because I loved it so much Changed? Well it was so very sweet I loved Nick from Just Pretending and I loved him even in Changed? The best think I truly got out of Changed? was what Nick said in there online chat just don't listen to what people have to say If someone has to ask you about it or feels the need to ask someone else about it they are not worth your time in the first place That is the best thing anyone can hearread It's an inspirational little uote and I love it In my opinion that is the best think just high schooler like myself can readStage Lights was well Different To me it was realistic than the other three in a way that it main character did not find her love I actually found the ending to be very good I just loved how Dana Burkey decided to add the aspect of you can't really fall in love with the first person you see Stage Lights also has an amazing uote that again high schoolers can really take into consideration my really life Romeo was out there somewhere but in the mean time I was just happy my friends found each other All in all I loved the book Dana Burkey is AMAZING author and every teenage girl should read these short stories I was sent this by the author for an honest reciewI really enjoyed these novella's there was romance and friendship which is a great combination I think that people will be able to relate to the characters The stories are easy to relate to what happens in real life It will be a set of novellas i will read again and again because i really enjoyed them and loved the storiesI will be reading work of the authorI also liked that the stories intertwined with each other The characters have a connection by friendship and i felt like i knew the characters by reading their stories 35Dana sent me a free copy for an honest review These stories were sweet simple teen love stories They were very short so there's always that feeling that there could have been a little to the story Even while being so short they managed to show all the drama that can come with being a teenage and give you characters to love and love to hate And there was even a twist that jumped out of nowhere too There are a few editing misses but small scale compared to some that are out there I can easily see myself returning for another read when I just need to chill out  Original review posted here35 Ratinghttpfangirlavueblogspotcom201412hearts to follow by dana burkey minihtmlFirst and foremost I want to give a special thanks to MsDana Burkey for sending me a signed copy of her novella series Now down to business Just Pretending The first story in this novella series follows a young girl named Cam Over the summer she had a crush on her next door neighbor Nick who was only in town for the season at his dad's When the summer came to an end Nick went back home to his mother's to attend school and just a month after was in a relationship This broke Cam's heart being that she felt their feelings for each other were mutual A school year ends summer begins and Nick is back in town with his girlfriend So to get back at Nick and give him what I call a taste of his own medicine Cam's good friend Josh pretends to be her boyfriend to make Nick jealous in hopes that he would break up with his girlfriend and pursue Cam With their plan in full effect and receiving the results they were hoping for Josh and Cam eventually build their own feelings for one another Are Cam's feelings mutual this time around with Josh? If so what about Nick?Well I must say that Just Pretending was my least favorite of the three novellas The main character Cam was indeed in high school but lord did she read as someone in the 5th grade I didn't relate to her at all and felt annoyed with her for 95% of the time Alot of her actions were a bit childish but on the other hand it made the story so cute I just wanted to pinch her cheeks and tell her how adorably irritating she was I don't know if that's a good or bad thingI will say that I loved me some Josh He was so freaking sweet Ugh I couldn't get enough of him I did feel like he was a bit over dramatic in some situations but hey he didn't want Nick to have his bae I get it boo I get yaNick wasn't as douchey as I thought he would be Hehehe douchey I'm learning new words guys I thought he was going to be a complete a hole but was surprised to see a totally different side to him in the next novella Changed? In this story the title is very fitting As I just mentioned Nick made a complete 360 this time around and it all started with Summer Or shall I say The season girl If you've read this book then you will definitely get that I was cracking up for 5 minutes straight when I read it lolAnywho Summer encounters Nick at a party It isn't really her scene but being dragged there by her friends who are trying to make their way into the In crowd she is forced to tag along Not into drinking or indulging in other wild crazy teenage activities Summer parts ways from her friends to find a uiet room There she is accompanied by a drunk Nick who has also embarked on the uest to find a vacant room away from his friends Having been kicked off the baseball team for poor grades deemed as a cheater on two of his girlfriends and who drinks like a frat boy with his popular crowd of friends Summer knows he isn't someone she should be friends with Or is he?After helping him during his drunken state at the party Nick and Summer build a friendship They meet up at games text late at night message each other on their computers when homework should be done you pretty much get the point They've grown extremely close but Summer isn't ready to share him with the world let alone her judgmental friends Is Nick the guy everyone paints him out to be or was his childish ways just a facade of the charming boy he really is?First of all Changed was my favorite of all three novellas I loved Summer as our main character She was a shy girl who had a huge passion for theater who was also very mature for her age With a great head on her shoulders she wasn't really into partying and things of that nature Instead you could find her in the library studying scripts for an upcoming role Nick is my second reason for loving this story He was a completely different guy from his appearance in Just Pretending and when I say different I mean different Before he was incredibly childish and arrogant but after meeting Summer you begin to witness his facade slowly dissolving as he realized how much she meant to himTheir chemistry was very realistic and I appreciated the fact that even though Summer had a huge crush on Nick for years prior to their friendship when he announced he wanted to take things a step further she didn't accept Instead she wanted to focus on theater and asked for some time until they became anything The ending to this novella had me smiling from ear to ear I'm pretty sure you can guess why Stage Lights In Stage lights we meet Tessa who had also made a cameo in Changed as a new theater friend of Summer's Tessa has just landed a big role in her school's play as Juliet and has an even bigger crush on the college guy playing her Romeo Anthony Eventually they begin to hang out and with her hormones getting the best of her after a party they attended she kisses him But things didn't seem to heat up between them as she expected they would They continued to hang out together but his brother Ian always seemed to be in attendance After getting some advice from one of her close friends Tessa begins to show Ian attention in hopes of winning his brother over Probably not the best idea Tess Things eventually get pretty messy after Tessa FINALLY realizes that it wasn't her dear Romeo that liked her after allOne of the things I loved about Stage Lights was that it centered around theater I participated in a few plays while in school and this book truly reminded me of my experience Although I liked Tessa's character overall certain situations left me feeling a bit irritated The fact that she was oblivious to very obvious things The situation between Anthony Ian and herself will seriously have you thinking how old is she again? I think my problem is when I read a book that's YA I prefer when the characters are a bit mature I think I easily relate and better connect with characters that even though in high school they read as maybe 17 or 18 years old I always find it a bit difficult to get into YA novels that come across as middle gradeAll in all these novellas were very cute stories Being only 100 or so pages it's a super uick read which can be read in between other heavier material If you're a lover of Young Adult contemporaries and romance stories then the Hearts to Follow series is for you First I got this wonderful series for free from the lovely author Dana Burkey Thank you so much for giving me the chance to read and review itThis is my first review so I apologize if it's not that wonderful This series consisted of 3 short stories Just Pretending Changed? and Stage Lights The first story follows Cam as she runs into the boy she had a crush on last summer who then left her without a word at the end and who got into a relationship about a month after returning to live with his mom Cam's friend Josh comes up with a plan to try to help her win Nick back from his current girlfriend Shenanigans ensue and you find yourself giggling along to the silly antics of these characters Changed is then about a girl named Summer who is a theatre geek and definitely not a party go er As she's dragged to a party by some friends she ends up helping Nick the beautiful guy she's admired from a long distance because of his bad reputation After the party she and Nick continue talking and Summer begins to uestion how many of the rumors she's heard about him are true As she learns about him truths come out that she didn't expect leading to a different ending than she originally intended Finally Stage Lights is told from the point of view of Tess one of Summer's theatre friends She finally landed her dream role as Juliet and the seemingly perfect guy is Romeo and he seems interested in her As she forms a closer bond with her Romeo she makes new friends as well ending up with some of the most unlikely people This was a really cute series of short romances that was perfect for the summer The characters were relatable enough to catch my attention I really enjoyed how they all interconnected with each other each one having a character from the previous one in them Personally my favorite character was Summer Things that could be improved There was an instance when Nick gave Summer his sweatshirt and it was stated as his basketball jacket instead of his baseball Just a minor thing I found it a little confusing that the second book switched tenses At first it was from a first person point of view then it switched to a third person and then back to a first person I understood it just as well but it kind of threw me off a bit As said in the book description this book has three different stories that can be a stand alones but all of them are connected due to the characters' relationshipsLet me start with Just Pretending This story opens up during the summer My first thought of this story was 'cliche' And as it turns out it was If you read the book description I'm uite sure that you'll think of it too I do like the progress of the story being slow and steady I did wonder what the ending of the story was so I guess it's not as cliche as it isThe second story Changed? was actually a good story too It's one of those bad boys turned nice guy stories so I guess I can also consider this as cliche also I think it's not that much though It's of a nice guy turned bad then good again The thing that I think that lacks is the 'changing' part But there is a reason for that though We had the point of view of Summer so we have no idea how Nick changed I just thought it would be great if we can see how Nick would change Other than those the flow of the events would still want you to read So it's definitely a good oneFinally the last story Stage Lights just took me off guard If the first two were uite cliches this one didn't end on how I thought it would end This story had a really good flow of story drama than the other two and I find it compelling I love the ending and this gives us a lesson on life but it's the type of life lesson we already know The characters and the way they do things make you confused which is a good thing because people's actions are confusing And that is definitely the reason why it became such a good storyOverall the book is okay They are short stories but I do wish there were details The book is well written and the characters are the type of people I would hang out with if I were still in high school so I can definitely relateI congratulate the author Dana Burkey for a good book I also want to thank her for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I wish her the best on books theaters scripts and dramas to come
