Life can feel like a cruel joke. I grew up poor and motherless, with a father who never got over his wife’s abandonment. But now he's gone too, and I'm dead set on finding the woman who so carelessly tossed me aside when I was a baby.

I want revenge. And I'm going to get back at my mother any way that I can.

I change my name. Start my new life in college, and just happen to cross paths with the gorgeous, ultra-rich Rhett Montgomery. He's immediately interested in me, not that I'm surprised.

You see, I planned it that way. I meant for him to find me. He's the one connection to my mother, and I'm using him, so I can destroy her. But I didn't plan on Rhett being so charming. Sweet. Sexy.

And I definitely didn't plan on falling for him either…

Her Defiant Heart is the first book in the Damaged Hearts series and tells the story of Jensen and Rhett. 

Her Defiant Heart is the second book I read by Monica Murphy and it was totally different than the first book I’ve read by her, Saving It. I mean this in a good way because Her Defiant Heart was such an interesting and addictive read.

I really liked the main character Jensen because she kind of reminded me of Joe from the TV show You. She always talked to herself like Joe did in the TV show, and I kinda liked that she was a bit psycho. Rhett was also an interesting character because Jensen never believed him so you don’t trust him either.

Her Defiant Heart was such a fast paced read and I couldn’t get enough of the story and the characters. There were some plot twists, and I couldn’t help myself from buying the two other books in the series. I really wanted to know what was going to happen to the characters.

I think that the second book in the series, His Wasted Heart, was the best book in the series and I really recommend checking out these books!
