Amy's 4 star ARC Review of Heroine Hearts: Darkness Made These Heroine Hearts by Kirsty Anne Still
-a highly addictive analgesic drug derived from morphine, often used illicitly as a narcotic producing euphoria.
-a woman admired for her courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.
He saw me as one.
I became addicted to the other.
He saw us as forever.
I saw our love story as bittersweet.
It was all caused by one thing - total, abominable darkness.
But that was what we loved the most.
After all, darkness made these heroine hearts.
**This is a dark romance, due to the subject material within the book. Heroine Heart is advised for readers of a mature nature and not suitable for any readers under 18. Read at your own discretion.
Use of tough subject matter includes rape, substance abuse, and violence.**

Note: This story deals with violence against women and addiction. Please do not read if you have triggers from either or both or these. This is a dark read that includes both.
Isla was taken away from her family and friends after a tragic incident during spring break. She wasn’t the only one taken … there were numerous others. It was a perfect place to pick your prey. Broken, used, and forced to do things you cant imagine, Isla lost her innocence a long time ago. The drug cartel is something you don’t break free from. Refusing to be shattered Isla is strong and fights. She stands strong taking things on her own body so the frail girls wont suffer.
Javier has wanted nothing but to work his way up the ranks of the cartel. He has moved up but not without blood. The man has a secret though and it may be his end and the end of a woman he wants to save. A violent man with a soul …
The turmoil between these characters is completely off the charts. The first time you meet Javier you are going to think this is going to be brutal and you may or may not be right. I wont tell … I can tell you though that you wont believe the story woven on the pages. The story isn’t easy and it isn’t pretty. It will take you through some very dark places and you might lose yourself in the process. The ending .. hold on …
I really love Kirsty Anne and her writing – I loved Saturdays at the Viper Room which was my first read by her. Thank you for the ARC Kirsty Anne!
