Audra Madison simply wanted to walk in the shoes of Emily Cavanaugh, a free-spirited teenager who died too young. After all, Audra wasn’t supposed to be here.
Thanks to Emily, Audra has a second chance at life. She’s doing all the things that seemed impossible just two years ago: Go to college. Date. Stargaze in the Rocky Mountains. Maybe get a tattoo. You know, live.
Jake Cavanaugh, a photographer with mysterious, brooding gray eyes, agrees to help chronicle her newfound experiences. She makes him laugh, one of the only people who can these days. As they delve into each other’s pasts – and secrets – the closer they become.
But she’s guarded and feels like she can’t trust anyone, including herself.
And he’s struggling with the fact that his beloved sister’s heart beats inside her.
I generously received this ARC from IndieSagePR in exchange for an honest review…
The Heartbeat Hypothesis is about two lost souls becoming one in this story of adventure and the journey of learning how to love someone even through the hurt.
What a breathtakingly captivating debut novel from the beautifully talented Lindsey Frydman! For the moment that I picked up this story, I couldn’t put it down and I quickly devoured it in less than three hours. This book captured by full attention and made my heart flutter from the very beginning to the very end.
There is literally a million things that could be said about this book, but nothing I could say would ever be able to justify just how extraordinary of a read it was. From the cover to the perfectly original characters, this story is everything. What a perfectly unique tale about two young hearts discovering what the true meaning of love is all about. Audra and Jake show book lovers just how strong of a bond two people can have. I strongly recommend picking up a copy of this amazing story today!
I started to inch back, but his hands pressed against my hips, urging me to stay. Our mouths collided, and the air between us hummed electric. This kiss was slower than our first. Different somehow. My pulse jumped, a brightness flashed behind my eyes, and my beloved treehouse fell away. Everything fell away. It was just me and Jake. His lips and mine. And for a moment, while his tongue explored my mouth and his fingers grazed my lower back, my pain ceased to matter. Nothing mattered aside from the warmth buzzing through my veins, and the quick beating of my heart.
About Lindsey Frydman
Lindsey has been writing since she was nine years old, when she discovered the awesomeness that is Harriet the Spy. Her books always include a romance, though sometimes there’s an added sci-fi or magical realism twist. She lives in Columbus, Ohio (where the weather is never quite right). Her BFA in Photography and Graphic Design has granted her a wide assortment of creative knowledge that serves as inspiration (and not much else). When she’s not crafting YA and NA stories, you’ll likely find her spending waaay too much time on Pinterest, playing a video game, singing show-tunes, or performing in a burlesque show—because she enjoys giving her introversion a worthy adversary. (Plus, it’s the closest to Broadway she’ll ever get.) Lindsey was a proud 2016 Pitch Wars Mentee and thoroughly adores being a part of the wonderful writing community. THE HEARTBEAT HYPOTHESIS is her debut novel.
