When Quinn Sullivan meets the recipient of her boyfriend’s donated heart, the two form an unexpected connection.

After Quinn loses her boyfriend, Trent, in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs in hopes of picking up the pieces of her now-unrecognizable life. She hears back from some of them, but the person who received Trent’s heart has remained silent. The essence of a person, she has always believed, is in the heart. If she finds Trent’s, then maybe she can have peace once and for all.

Risking everything in order to finally lay her memories to rest, Quinn goes outside the system to track down nineteen-year-old Colton Thomas—a guy whose life has been forever changed by this priceless gift. But what starts as an accidental run-in quickly develops into more, sparking an undeniable attraction. She doesn't want to give in to it—especially since he has no idea how they're connected—but their time together has made Quinn feel alive again. No matter how hard she’s falling for Colton, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she’s lost…and all that remains at stake.

As you are aware by now, you will know that I have been fan of JESSI KIRBY since I read her debut novel MOONGLASS back in 2012. It has been over a year since I last read anything by her. I had THINGS WE KNOW BY HEART in my Nook for a while and now that I have read it, I wished that I picked up sooner than I had. At same time, I am glad I am on winter break from work so have more time to read it. From the minute that I started reading THINGS WE KNOW BY HEART on Christmas day, I did not want to set it down. If it wasn’t for spending time with my family, I most likely wouldn’t had. I did spend most of that night reading it, because I wanted to see what would happen with Quinn and Colton next, if he would find out about Trent and what his reaction might be. JESSI KIRBY will have on the edge of the seat from the first page till the last.

Quinn and Colton’s relationship started like any other teens, expect it wasn’t what Quinn planned on. At start she just wanted to see the person who had her boyfriend’s heart but not get involved in his life. I don’t think that falling in love with him, was in her plans, especially after losing her boyfriend Trent. I know that she didn’t plan on it, but how can you not love someone like Colton? The way he took care of her, even though he just met her. I have this feeling that he felt that the two of them had some sort connection despite fact that they just met. Otherwise why else would he go all that way, to see her, to tell her that he loved spending time with her. I could tell that Quinn tried to deny the pull she felt towards Colton, because of Trent and also because she felt guilty because she wasn’t being honest with him. I had this bad feeling that it might not end well when he did find out. That someone would get hurt. Which is what happened. Which is why I was smiling when they worked out, despite the situation, they deserved one another. They were happy together.

THINGS WE KNOW BY HEART was beautifully written, filled with so many emotions. I could feel all the pain, guilt, love that Quinn was filling through the novel. Despite fact that it was a heart aching story, I couldn’t get enough of Quinn &Colton’s story. I found myself rooting for their happy ending. It’s what Trent would wanted for Quinn. Another breath taking story by JESSI KIRBY . I cannot wait to see what story she has in store for us next.
