My Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

From the Publisher:

After a six year absence, Kale Stone returns to Australia to inherit his father’s vineyard, Vine Mountain Winery, but finds a shocking requirement to the will. His homophobic father set an impossible condition: he must marry or reach age thirty-five before he can inherit the family business and fortune. Unable to run the winery without the money, he has no choice but to sell. 

The only light in the darkness is his childhood friendship with the winery manager, Tyler Duram, which grows into a secret love affair. When an offer arrives for the vineyard, it includes a contract for Tyler. Unwilling to lose Tyler, Kale searches for another solution— until he catches Tyler kissing another man.

My View

Kale returns to his family’s winery upon his father’s death and finds that his homophobic father, who forced him out many years earlier for being gay, has left the winery to Kale with the stipulation that he marry to receive the millions necessary to operate the business. He finds pretty winery manager, Tyler, and soon the two men are involved in an affair, and pretty quickly declare their love.

Of course they soon find a loop hole in the old man’s will (there is no requirement that Kale marry a woman), and marry. The requisite angsty story element is a misunderstanding caused by a jerk guy from both Kale and Tyler’s past who is intent upon causing trouble. Kale quickly jumps to the wrong conclusion and is a total jerk who almost leaves Tyler, even though Tyler steadfastly tells him the truth about the situation. (My favorite *head smack* moment was when Kale tells Tyler he would have not left if Tyler had just told him the truth during their misunderstanding … Uhh … He DID tell him!).

Overall, I Heart You is an uncomplicated, light romance that is a fun way to wile away a few hours – It’s a perfect, sweet beach read!

One thought on “I Heart You by H.C Brown ~ Review by Leisa

  1. Thx for the review, but I think I’ll pass on this one 🙂 (not because of your review! )

    I have a problem w/paying 3.49 (amazon) for 51 pages!
    Also the blurb alludes to both guys being in the mid thirties but the guys on the cover look barely 21! I know that’s petty, but I’m a cover whore 😉 and stuff like that really bothers me….
