Review/Playlist: My Paper Heart by Magan Vernon

My Paper Heart
Magan Vernon
Release Date: August 1st, 2012
( Barnes & Noble / Amazon )
There are worse things in life than failing out of college- such as having your parents receive the letter that you’ve been kicked out.
Now to appease her parents self-proclaimed sorority princess Libby Gentry is packing up her Prada bag and heading to work for her great aunt’s antique store in tiny Elsbury, Louisiana. She’s pretty sure she can tackle the swamp and deal with her great aunt and tom boy of a little cousin, but what she doesn’t know is if she can handle the local town playboy, Blaine Crabtree.

As Libby's feelings for Blaine grow, so does her need for acceptance and all of the insecurities she has kept inside are coming out. She may have survived the Louisiana swamp, but she may not survive Blaine's reluctance to say the 'L' word. When Blaine finally commits to the three words Libby’s been waiting for, she only hopes they haven’t come too late.

**This book does contain some mild language and sexual content. It is meant for upper YA readers**

*An eARC was provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review* 

I wasn't sure what to expect when going into reading My Paper Heart. I have never read a book by Magan Vernon before but once I read the synopsis and saw that it was going to be classified as New Adult I knew I had to give this book a shot.

Libby isn't you typical blonde bimbo. Well, from the looks of it I guess you can say she is... flunking out of college after her first year and the sorority she was apart of could very well make you think she is a nothing more than a sorority girl with money who didn't give a rats a** to wither she passed or failed. But when her parents are more than peeved that she wasted a full year of college she is sent packing to her Great Aunts in Louisiana for a little wake up call.

I thoroughly enjoyed Libby. She was hilarious and the more you get to know her the more you know she isn't the blonde bimbo everyone in her sorority though she was. She is hilarious and along the way find herself amongst the southern charm she was so against when she was sent away. I love the connection she forged with her cousin Brittany and it really helped the reader see that Libby is way more than meets the eye. And don't you dare get me started on Blaine. Ladies, Blaine is that sexy southern man that we all dream about, not to mention completely and totally hilarious in everything he says. Swoon!

There wasn't a major WOW factor for me in how this book was delivered or finished, but I did enjoy how I got my complete ending. That is the one thing that pushes me away from books now a days, especially indie books. Finishing way too soon and with not enough substance. But this book hit the nail on the head and ended great. If you are looking for something that isn't too smexy and just the right amount of swoonage then I MUST suggest that you pick this read up. I know you ladies will fall for Blaine just the way I did. ; ]
