I have been lax this week on reviews because I had too many other things going on, but I did write one for Juliana  Haygert’s Heart’s Heart Secret Wish. 
(Next week I will have a review especially for this meme- I just saw that cute little dragon graphic this morning and wanted to get in on posting it!)

Her Heart’s Secret Wish 

by Juliana Haygert
Book Description: 

With a renowned reputation as a player, she had everything figured out…

Twenty-year-old college student, Natasha is the life of every party and the reason behind many celebrations. The easiest girl on campus has all guys at her feet and more than a few in her bed.

…until he came into the game…

Having entered the academic world by chance, Professor Jason Stone is surprised to find one of his young students a huge temptation. The infamous Natasha has caught his attention. But is there more to her than meets the eye?

…and changed the rules.

As their unexpected friendship grows, so does their attraction to each other. When Jason’s Christmas plans are canceled and he ends up at the same party as Natasha, sparks flare, destroying the safe zone around them. Will they figure out how to break through their self-imposed barriers to be together, or lose one another forever?


This was a quick, fun read!  The main character, Natasha, is a sexy college student with more than a few notches on her bedpost and our hero is his nerdy hotness, Jason (professor and video gamer extraordinaire!). 

Over the past few months Natasha and Jason have become friends.  Jason ignores her sultry reputation and his growing feelings for Natasha as they get to know each other better, but when students begin to leave for the winter break, and Natasha and Jason both find themselves alone with no family or friends, they meet at a campus party and suddenly all bets are off!

This short story is very well-written and I breezed through it in an hour or two.  I loved how Natasha is the “bad girl” and Jason is the “good guy” – it kind of puts a new spin on the college relationship scene!

Her Heart’s Secret Wish is a romantic story perfect for the holidays – a feel good piece of fun that leaves you happy and wanting more.  I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a quick romance.

About the Author: 
Juliana is a Brazilian girl living in Connecticut.

She would love to be Wonder Woman, Cheetara, Elektra, Buffy, Phoebe, She-ra, Rose, Korra, Cornelia, a blood elf shadow priest, and other various kick-ass female from comics, TV series, movies, books and games, but she settles for—the less exciting but equally gratifying life—a wife, mother, friend and a writer. Her heroines are like the ones cited above and she also writes about the heroes who drive them crazy—and occasionally hot.

Since her first stories, she wrote about 20-something year old protagonists without knowing it wouldn’t fit in today’s traditional publishing market.

Nowadays, besides writing full time, she battles for the recognition of New Adult as a category.
