A Secure Heart

Title:  A Secure Heart
Author:  Charity Parkerson
Publication Information:  Smashwords edition PDF. 2011. 305 pages.

Book Source:  I received this book through the LibraryThing Member Giveaway program free of cost in exchange for an honest review.

Favorite Quote:  "You are selfish, because you think that your pain is your own, and you screw the rest of us out of being able to share it with you. It's emotional blackmail."

A Secure Heart is a collection of stories centered around the men of a security service company. The characters in the different stories do interrelate. The relationships continue from one story to the next. However, each section of the book focuses on the love story of one character.

A Secure Heart falls into the "adult" fiction genre, a fact I did not realize when I requested the review copy. I normally do not read this genre. However, having received the book, I did decide to read it. I will not comment on those aspects of the book. If that appeals to you, you will enjoy the book. It's not something I choose to read. That being said, I still did enjoy the stories themselves.

The stories each have substance to them. The erotica is part of the story, but it is not the story. Elements of situations the characters find themselves in are real. One story deals with friendship evolving into love. One story deals with the thought of losing a loved one and what you would do to save them. Another deals with infertility and its effect on a relationship.

If this genre is not one you read, perhaps you may be able to look past it and enjoy the stories themselves. If the genre does appeal to you, then you get the added bonus of a good story to surround it.
