Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Samantha Marie Ramsden has three brothers. Craig, John and Matt. When tragedy strikes their family, Craig takes on the task of becoming his siblings legal guardian. It’s hard enough being someone’s guardian, but when you’ve only recently entered adulthood yourself it’s almost impossible to know where to draw the line between sibling and ‘parent’.
This is made even harder on him when Sam starts to get close to a long time friend, Jason. It looks like their friendship could turn into something more. An idea that Craig has never been too happy with. Spanning six years, My Heart is Yours explores family, friendship, love and much more. As well as asking the question: Would you defy family for love?

CONTAINS SOME SPOILERS
This was an honest, refreshing, good book. I enjoyed this story from beginning to end. I loved the ending! This book was a quick and easy read. I finished this book in one sitting. I liked the way this story flowed. I felt for the main character Sam and her daily struggles.
Sam watched her biological father kill her biological mother at the young age of 5. She was place in an orphanage. From that orphanage she was adopted into a loving home with 3 boys. Sam has a good life until one day that takes both of her adopted parents from her. The oldest of the 3 boys becomes legal guardian. The siblings work hard and struggle to make ends meet. Life is hard, but it is happy. What does life have in store for Sam? What about her wishes, wants, and desires? Does she learn to love again or does the fear of loosing someone else hold her back?
I enjoyed this book. This was the first book I have read by this author, but I hope to read many more.
