About Romanic Heart Beats ....
Alexandra Isobel’s book Romantic Heart Beats is a group of short stories all with a military theme. Readers this book is what I like to call a sneak peak of what the author has in store. All these stories do end on a cliffhanger. These stories all whet the appetite leaving the reader wanting more. Hopefully she doesn’t make readers wait too long.

Because the stories are all short and very fast paced I will only review one of them as to not give much a way.

Romantic Heart Beats opens with the first story Take Flight:

Taking place in Indonesia gun shots are everywhere Daria Hill has no idea what is happening. Being trained as a military daughter she is used to drills but the real thing has her on edge. Mercury her protector and soldier has been assigned Daria’s life. But what happens when work mixes with pleasure?

These two have a rocky relationship. Mercury is a man with many secrets and very closed off except when it comes to Daria. Her parents have her life planned and she is to do as she is told but her heart has other plans. Daria has loved Mercury for years but these two can never be more than work and obligation or can they? One night the lines are crossed and obligation is thrown out the window.

In the midst of all the pandemonium the author has flashback scenes on Daria and Mercury’s relationship. I would have liked to see more development of their relationship. This story was more the reader being told what was happening. At times I was confused as to what was going on. I am a visual reader and I had no idea what these two people looked like just their names and a brief background description. Because these stories are short it leaves the reader wanting more information. Please judge this book for yourselves and not based on this one review.
Romantic Heart Beats is now available for purchase.
