Release Blitz & Reviews ~~ Pierced Hearts by Ahren Sanders
Series: Southern Charmers #1
Sandy’s 4.5 Blush Review
Second chance romance? Sign me up! It’s one of my favorite tropes and THIS one will stay with you.
Darby and Pierce are each other’s first loves and destined to be forever – right? Come on! That’s never the way it goes – ever. Alas, it’s a cruel world and our lovebirds are separated.
Twelve years later, that’s right, 12…years…later and though each of them has continued to live neither one has moved on, in their heart, from the other. Darby comes back home to help her family, knowing that she will have to face the love she left behind.
Pierce is not easy. He’s angry and wow does he let all his feelings fly. I actually had to put it down for a few minutes because it felt way too real.
I’m not a fan of giving away too much of the story in the review. Ahren has once again given us characters that make us almost forget that we are reading a book. The angst is YAY high! Is it possible to come to an understanding and put together the broken pieces of their past? Can they forgive each other?
Let me tell you, I have not felt this way since reading It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover. In my humble opinion, I think Pierce Hearts is the best thing Ahren Sanders has written thus far.
Stephanie’s 4.5 Blush Review
Pierced Hearts (Southern Charmers #1)will take you on quite a ride! The pace is steady as you go through young love, heartache and sweet reunions. Emotions are high. The sexy times are hot!
Darby Graham left her home town of Charlestown twelve years ago, leaving behind her true love and nursing a broken heart. Pierce Kendrick was devastated when Darby left. But life moved on. At least he thought so until she returned. A lot can happen in twelve years. A lot!
She says we’re impossible.
I say she’s wrong.
I just loved Pierce and Darby’s story. It was sweet, romantic, emotional and heartbreaking. Southern charmers and second chances! The chapters flowed beautifully. Darby is independent and sassy. Her emotions and feelings felt so real. Pierce comes off prickly at first. Morphing into a gritty alpha who is sexy as hell! There were times that I felt the story could not redeem itself (no spoilers). But it does, again, flowing and real. I have not been the biggest fan of contemporary romance lately but Pierced Hearts really pulled out all of the stops and made me love it again! But wait – Pierce’s brother, Miller, is getting his story too!!! Looking forward to the next book in the Southern Charmersseries!
Loving you was the best and worst thing that ever happened to me.

I don’t expect is for the truth to rock my world. For a second time in my life, I’m helpless

studied rock collecting at the Sorbonne in France. There she met the love of
her life-her pet pig Sybil. She returned to the states and started writing. She
is happily married to a guy who used to live under a bridge and she met while
pole-dancing.Now, meet the real me. I grew up in the south and consider myself a true
“Southerner”. Most of the special locations mentioned in my books are
reflections of my favorite places. Living on the Florida coast, my family
spends a lot time at the beach which is where I usually can be found with a
book in my hand.
