:Synopsis:

Sequel to Plastic Hearts…
Can a relationship survive on love alone? Is love truly enough?
Dane and Alex’s relationship has never been easy, but now they have a fresh start without the pressures
of Alex’s family. Together they try to move forward while continuing to struggle with a past that they
can’t seem to escape.
Sometimes no matter how hard we try to make things work, love isn’t enough.
Sometimes even after a broken heart is mended, cracks remain, and the same doubts and insecurities
that once yanked us apart seep in.
Can true love hold Dane and Alex together or will their hearts completely shatter like glass?

I thought Glass Hearts was a fantastic sequel! We pick up right where Plastic Hearts leaves off with Alex just finishing moving her stuff into Dane’s apt. I also LOVED this one was a dual POV; I think with the challenges they faced it was important we get Dane’s side as well. We learn A LOT more about Dane and his family life in this book and I have to say after seeing how he grew up I have so much respect for the adult he’s become! 
I also have to give Alex a TON of credit for her strength and determination; after cutting ties with her family she didn’t fall apart, she was determined to face each new challenge head on. I loved the realness of their relationship; there are no rainbows & unicorns here. Dane and Alex have a real relationship with real life everyday problems and issues and I really liked seeing how they handled them. I loved Dane’s patience and understanding with Alex knowing she was learning as she went and I LOVEDD that Alex stopped running away from things! She pulled up those big girl panties and dealt with the crap life threw at them. I rooted for the two of them through the entire book. Without giving spoilers (you know this girl don’t play that) their relationship does hit some bumps in the road…maybe a pothole here and there…maybe at one point my heart almost jumped out of my chest from worried/nervous anxiety but it could’ve been the fireworks outside…I may or may not have cursed the author at one point for leading me to think  “Oh my God no no no, this CAN NOT BE HAPPENING and made me reach for my calm down juice (A can of Pepsi since it was July 4th and Starbucks was closed)
All in all I reallly liked Glass Hearts and I can’t wait for Jade’s book I think I know what’s up with her and I can’t wait to see if I’m right and how her story plays out!!! 
I give Glass Hearts 4 stars
P.S. Dane is freaking hot!
