RHA Presents Borrowed Heart by Linda Lamberson

Evie Sanders is pretty good at heeding that gnawing feeling she gets when trouble rears its head—or at least she used to be. Things change when she meets Quinn Harrison one morning after class. Evie would never do anything intentionally to hurt her long-distance boyfriend or jeopardize their relationship, but she finds it increasingly difficult to resist Quinn. Just when things can’t seem to get any more complicated, Evie is involved in a fatal car accident. Yet, her death marks a new beginning—and her new existence as an immortal. It’s not long before Evie and Quinn’s paths cross again, and she finds herself trying to walk a fine line between bending the rules she must now obey and breaking them.

About the Author Linda Lamberson taken from her site*

I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and moved to the city after graduating from Indiana University in Bloomington. I attended graduate school at The University of Chicago, where I received my Masters degree in Social Service Administration and then my Juris Doctor degree. Thereafter, I worked as an intellectual property attorney at the law firm of McDermott, Will and Emery until I decided to stay home to spend more time with my husband and two young children.
I was inspired to write this story while on a flight home from Boston. My neighboring passenger mentioned he’d just been involved in a car accident, and his account reminded me of a car accident I’d been in while a freshman at IU—an accident I was lucky enough to walk away from unscathed, much to my surprise and to the shock of witnesses to the collision.
Flashing back to that night when I was a freshman led me to ask the question—What if? …What if I hadn’t survived the accident? Would that have been the end of my story? What if it didn’t have to be? Evie Sanders was born out of that basic premise, and so was her story, BORROWED HEART. Since then, I’ve written the second and third installments of the Evie Sanders series, which I also plan to publish.
My Review:

Borrowed Heart
Linda Lamberson

Eve, or as her friends called her, Evie, didn't know that the morning she woke up late for one of her classes, not taking the time to take notice of what she was going to wear, only throwing something on off of the floor, that her life was pre-destined. Nor would she heed the warning from the physic.
When Quinn first asked Eve for her notes on class, little did he know that his life would never be the same and that his too was pre-destined.

Take a journey of love, betrayal, jealousy, pain, tears, and heartache in Borrowed Heart. It is a very strong love story that defines what the word 'soul-mate' means. It also gives us glimpses into the heavens and puts questions into our minds, could this really happen after death? It's not so much about what happens after death as it is about how far love and a heart can reach. 

I found myself reading this book in no time because it was such a page turner and I was so filled with the emotions the people in the book were going through, I couldn't put it down because I had to know what was going to happen to them in the decisions they were making. Close to the end, I just closed my eyes and told myself that no, this can't end like this, please let this last chapter, last few pages turn out differently. It didn't exactly end the way I wanted, but the author has allowed the reader to get a peek at the next book in Evie's life and I have my fingers crossed!!! Things just have to work out the way I want it to. 

Borrowed heart is one of those books you NEVER want to end, you want it to go on and on. I guess the author knows this and that is why she is  putting us out of our misery by making it a series. *smile* Thank you!!

I highly recommend Borrowed Heart by Linda Lamberson! It totally touched my heart and tearing it out at the same time. It is a roller coaster of emotions and I LOVED IT.

I give Borrowed Heart five stars *****
