    How many times can I give a book ALL THE FUCKING STARS? Let me count them...

    Connor and Ava will SLAY you. They will remind you that you exist, breathe, live, love, lose, win and fight. You fight even when it all seems like a losing battle. Family comes first, and in all kinds of ways. Smiles change lives. Matter to those around you. Live with purpose. Love with all your heart. This book is a game changer people. This duet is my favorite from Jay...not just my favorite of hers it's my favorite duet EVER. The Heartache Duet was quick in surpassing the thousands of stories I've read and owning a piece of my heart forever. The words poured from the pages and became a part of me. Not only are Connor and Ava magic, but the author that brought them to life has some hocus pocus happening in her too. My favorite. It's special. As always Jay brings humor, heart and life into her words, transporting you into a world with these characters. Where you belong...you feel it, you completely experience it. It's like a damn 3-D movie without the headache. Fictional lives touching your own in a way that will stay with you long after the words The End are read. Thank you Jay. And keep that shit up.

    is the final book in Jay McLean's 'Heartache' duet. It picks up where the previous book left off. Spoken in 'Dual perspectives'

    I'm not going to write up this review as I normally would mainly because I don't want to divulge any spoilers, you need to go into this duet blind, be prepared to be taken on such a profound heartbreaking yet beautiful story that is so unique, this wrapped the whole story up so perfectly.

    I could not wait to read the epic conclusion

    and wow! I could not have loved this duet any more than I did. It was everything I had hoped it would be and more. I have been a massive Jay McLean fan for many years, but nothing could have prepared me for the heartbreaking yet beautiful journey she took me on. These two books will stay with me forever. I was absolutely spell-bounded with Jay’s flawless writing and her beautiful words that have truly touched my soul in such a profound way. No review I attempt to write will do justice to how positively epic this story was. Trust me when I say this duet is a must read and one that will stay with you long after the last word is read.

    Ava and Connor have not had an easy road to love and while there were many factors affecting them being together, I had to have faith that a love like theirs would stand tall against the toughest terrain, that they would eventually find their way back to one another again. They were meant to be in every sense of the word, and I hoped and prayed they would get their long sought after happily ever after that they both were so deserving of.

    I cannot even articulate enough how much I adored this duet; it was just everything. It had the perfect balance of gut-wrenching heartache, angst and laugh out loud moments that kept me fully invested and addicted until the very end. This duet is a powerful story of first love, and I was not prepared for the feelings that these two stories would evoke from me. I would recommend both

    and

    to absolutely everyone, it is an unforgettable duet that is a must read.

    Did I really think I would walk away from this second book unscathed? HAHA! Jokes on me, because I did NOT. There are books that I wait anxiously for....but also dread. This was one of them. Sounds like a terrible thing to say, but I wanted so desperately to get more of Connor and Ava's story, but I also knew that once I read it, it was going to be over and I was going to be super sad about that. Well, Jay McLean.....ya done did it again. I haven't

Sounds like a terrible thing to say, but I wanted so desperately to get more of Connor and Ava's story, but I also knew that once I read it, it was going to be over and I was going to be super sad about that. Well, Jay McLean.....ya done did it again. I haven't read a book of yours that I haven't loved and heartily recommended, and now I have a new addition to my Favorites List for 2019.

    She nailed the teen angst and the stubborn anger.

    She nailed the pressure and teenaged stress.

    She nailed the love and the heartbreak.

    Honestly, I just think she

    it.

    Not sure I want to readily admit that Connor is book boyfriend material.....because

    comes to mind right now. HA! But he was being raised right and he had a heart of compassion and a head filled with determination. He was growing up into an amazing young man and he just made me smile. He did everything right and he was so worthy of all the frustration and the drama. I definitely would have been head over heels in love with him had I been in high school with him. He would have easily been the dream back then. That kind of love is perfect. Painful as it may have been, the magnetism he and Ava had was perfection. I honestly think I can sum it up to say that Jay McLean can write the most amazing young men. Seriously, I'm in love with Connor and who he is at his core.

    The craziness of this reading journey was not lost on me. I knew I needed to be worried because I was like, yes!! We are cool. Life is good. They are in love. But then I looked down and it said I wasn’t even halfway through it, so I knew some stuff was coming my way. I told myself,

    And she did.

    Without apologies.

    There is something about the way she tells a story. She just wraps me up in a bear hug while she tells of a journey worth your time and patience. Trust. 5 letters. Powerful ones. After loving every story of hers I’ve read, I whole heartedly TRUST her to take me down a path....one with fears and pain, one with love and emotion, but one with truth and consequences. I loved this duet. I got all the emotions I wanted to get in a YA, angsty young love romance. She's also only one of two that I wholeheartedly trust without question.

    Connor was all boy.

    Ava was all girl.

    Connor was trying to always do the right thing with one goal in mind. His

    Ava was stubborn beyond control, but had a heart of fear she lived with. Her

    Connor was everything I would have wanted in a boyfriend. He proved it daily with Ava.

    Ava was scared of the pain that love would inevitably deliver. Connor wanted to prove she was safe with him.

    I can compare and chat about this series all day long, and there will always be a special place in my heart for these two.

    I think the only things I ran into with this one were that it read a bit slower than the first one, so I was constantly wondering what was going to happen as I went further along, and the extra drama that just added salt to the already seeping wounds. It worked, and it was a trajectory for some of the results to play out as they did, but there was quite a bit in this book. I'm thankful it didn't detract from my overall enjoyment factor, and for someone who hates extra drama - it still worked, so I can't truly complain. The issues that came up between Connor and Ava were true to life, real teenage issues....but also magnified by teenaged rationale, or lack thereof. Their love defied all logic and these are the kinds of love stories that I love to settle deep into. I'm completely drawn to them, but also to Jay McLean's writing and the wonder that is her mind. I loved this duet so so much and will happily and heartily recommend it to any and every one that will listen.

    Since I started this book, all I wanted was Ava and Connor to be happy. This book made me so many emotions, happiness, sadness, and desperation. The ending made me sooooo happy, because after everything they went through, they deserved the happiness they got.

    I already miss these characters.

    After finishing Heartache and Hope I immediately dove straight into book 2 First and Forever. I was enjoying the wonderful Connor and his relationship with Ava and especially his growing friendship with Ava’s mother Jo. Also Ava and Connor’s friendship with Karen was a highlight. What can I say, Connor was such a fantastic character and hero. The author certainly knows how to write compelling and swoon worthy male characters. Connor is up there with Joshua from the Kick Push Duet!

    But for some

    After finishing Heartache and Hope I immediately dove straight into book 2 First and Forever.

What can I say, Connor was such a fantastic character and hero. The author certainly knows how to write compelling and swoon worthy male characters. Connor is up there with Joshua from the Kick Push Duet!

    But for some reason towards the last 30% I felt there was too much drama which resulted in affecting my overall enjoyment of the story. Both Connor and Ava kept things from one another which could have been easily solved if they had communicated. It was dragged on for far too long. Ava and her mixed signals towards Connor was definitely testing my patience. It was a little too much and especially when Connor did nothing but being patient with her. The epilogue was great and ended the story with a terrific and sweet HEA.

    I didn’t enjoy First and Forever as much as Heartache and Hope but it was still good and I got my Connor fix. So there’s always that.
