I was hooked on CharitableHearts by EJ McCay from page one and couldn’t put it down. From the description I thought it was going to be predictable, but it really wasn’t. A little, but most Romance novels are.
The main character, Maggie is snarky and sarcastic like me! She’s a philanthropist who goes out of her way to make sure the charities she funds are actually putting their money in the right places. I like that because I run a non-profit and really try to go out of my way to put our money directly into programs that will positively affect our customers and keep our overhead costs down.
Maggie fights her attraction to Levi, who is one of her perspective clients, and he fights his attraction to her, sort of. They both have secrets and tragedies in their backgrounds, and have to work past those in order to let their walls down so they can fall in love.
I loved it that the characters were down-to-earth and happy with the simple things in life, like homemade pizza and sitting on the back patio together, rather than the glam and glitz that could easily be within reach, considering they’re both rich. They were easy to connect with.
EJ’s writing style is great and I love omniscient point-of-view. Character development was well-done and the story flowed well.
I loved Charitable Hearts, and have already started reading it for the second time!
