BLOG TOUR :: Disclosure of the Heart by Mary Whitney

Disclosure of the Heart Blog Tour Banner

Sixteen years is a long time to wait for your true love to reappear, and, anyway, Nicki Johnson couldn’t wait for the impossible to happen. Hard life lessons have taught her that fairy tales are children’s stories, and fate is cruel. Burying her hopes, she’s spent the last sixteen years focused and driven toward her career, and it’s landed her with a job at the White House with a gem of a boyfriend. 

But when her high school love, Adam Kincaid, walks into the White House as a BBC reporter, Nicki’s world is thrown into turmoil as she relives their past. Adam has come back for her, but has he arrived too late?

My Review:

Beside your heart is simply a very beautiful love story..Both books of the series are so beautifully written and the story itself is so sweet and adorable that you can do nothing more than read it and love it with all of your heart..

In the first book, we saw how everything began..How Nicki and Adam met, fell in love, fought and made love once more..We read about 2 young people who dealt with everything that came their way and came out stronger..We read about 2 young people who were just beginning to find themselves and discover where in this world they belong..
In the ending, we saw the first time they saw each other after all these years by Adam’s point of view. I loved that for so many reasons! First of all, it was a brilliant transition from the first book to the second and from the past to the present..Second of all, I enjoyed that because it’s always so interesting to see what’s happening from both points of view, the female and the male version..

Now, in the second book Nicki and Adam meet again with Adam’s help of course..And I LOVED that..He’s fighting for her in a way he hasn’t before..As a man who loves his lady and he wants her back..Forever..He may not appear so sure, but I think he is..You don’t change jobs just to see if there’s still spark between you and your high school sweetheart, now do you? I didn’t think so either..Anyway..We see their obstacles both professionally and individually..
Regarding the book..

It’s beautiful written…It is a wonderful story that I adored and I will probably read again many times in the future..I loved the thoughts the characters had..The ups and downs..It felt like a real situation based on a fairytale..It was really remarkable!

About our main characters..

>>Nicki has grown up and has turned into a sophisticated intelligent beautiful independent woman. She has her dream job and she’s excellent at it…She has built a successful and fulfilling life (you’ll understand this better, once you read the book and find out more about her)! She never really forgot Adam and when he comes back for her, she loses a bit of her self-confidence around him..xoxo
I really enjoyed the fact that she’s entirely clueless about Adam’s feelings..Of course, she always was like that..But it’s so amusing and sweet to see it again in this book..I really enjoyed her character in both books, actually..

>>Adam has become a great man..I loved his jealousy and his possessiveness…I loved the way he pursued her..Because Adam is also turning into a teenager when it comes to Nicki..No matter how many years pass them by..

He’s stubborn and persistent and a man worthy of a woman like her..

A beautiful story written in a beautiful way….

I have the pleasure to introduce you to Mr Adam Kincaid,since he's here for an interview!!

Welcome to my place, Adam! Thank you for coming! It’s a pleasure to meet you! How are you? Nervous or excited?

Hello, Mia. Thank you for the invitation. I’m a bit nervous, really. Journalists prefer asking the questions.

Let’s go to memory lane for a while..Can you describe the first time you met Nicki?

My, that was some time ago. I believe we were in the school cafeteria. She was adorably shy, and unfortunately, her boyfriend at the time interrupted the conversation. *chuckles* The bastard.

What was your happiest memory from those times?

I’d have to say it was that Valentine’s Day we spent together. It was perfect.

Do you regret letting all those years pass by without any contact with Nicki? You must have missed her very much..How did you cope with that?

*sigh* I think we had to be apart so we could be together again. That said, I missed her terribly. I coped with it by telling myself if she wanted anything at all to do with me, she’d seek me out. It was a silly thing to say because I knew it was untrue. Nicki is such a strong person she can stop herself from doing something she actually wants to.

Can you describe what was going on in your mind and heart when you first saw her again after all those years?

It was surreal. My high school self was elated to see her again, while my adult self was looking at her objectively and finding her attractive in every way.

Before you admit your feelings to Nicki, you did a very good job hiding your reactions to some umm things…Like, when she told you she had a boyfriend she was going to live with or when she told you that he asked her to marry him…Just a twitch here and there but we didn’t see a major reaction..So how were you reacting on the inside? Please feel free to reveal your most violent thoughts..We like it!

Now, I can’t say too much about that or no one will read my book when it comes out in the spring. I will say that I was devastated, but prepared. David had warned me she was probably taken.

Saying you and Dan don’t get along would be an understatement..But why is that? I agree he didn’t seem to be a nice guy at all, but why this animosity?

I suppose there’s some competition between two male reporters of a certain age. Additionally, he’s everything I loathe about American journalism. He’s shallow and fake with a preoccupation with appearances and a penchant for bravado.

In some point, your taste in women was challenged…You answered that your taste wasn’t good only when you were waiting for her to turn around..Why did you date women like Muff or Felicity? They are so callous and petty…I’m sure there were better women to date..

I’m sorry I know Nicki was the first to raise the issue, but if I answer that question I’m only going to get in trouble with her. It’s really all water under the bridge, regardless. I’m happily and permanently off the market.

Your decision to leave your job was made very easily from your part..Didn’t you hesitate at all?

No. Not when I saw what I was getting in return.

I was wondering about something else..We know how your family feels about Nicki but how does her family feel about you?

Of course, they were skeptical given what happened between Nicki and me when we were young. I believe they’ve warmed up to me now. Quitting your job for someone is a sign that you’re serious about a future with that person.

Finally, I won’t ask you about your future because I’m sure it entails NICKI…**chuckling But I will ask you to describe her to us..Some few words to capture her essence to the best of your ability, since you know her so well..

Lovely, quirky, funny, shrewd, strong, and sexy as hell.

Thank you, Mia. You’ve been a fantastic interviewer!
Thank you Adam for coming!! You can return to your Nicki now...

Beside Your Heart #1 : My Review

Beside your heart is a beautiful story..There’s no other better description than that..Whether Mary writes about them when they were younger or when they’re adults, Adam and Nicki’s story is truly beautiful..

It’s sweet and romantic. Yet it’s real it feels real..It’s not cheesy or too “sweet”..It doesn’t have petty drama. It consists of real issues, real tragedies and real people who face those tragedies..It’s innocent and it’s so unbelievably true..It speaks to your heart, even if you’re a teenager and even if you’re an adult..

Mary manages to capture our attention and hearts with a story that’s unique on the one hand and familiar on the other..The book has remarkable writing..But to be honest, the story is the highlight..

Beautiful and Romantic. Innocent and Real.
