Enchanted Heart Blog Tour, Review, Quiz+ Giveaway!

Cassandra Vera never ever broke the rules.


She’s also had a nonexistent social life since her best friend moved to Vegas. Armed with a new set of resolutions, the promise of a hot date, and her adoptive parents out of town, seventeen-year-old Cassandra agrees to a road trip, which is the perfect way to celebrate her birthday and ring in the New Year. After all, she’s headed to Vegas, the city where secrets are meant to stay hidden. Little does Cassandra know her past is buried there as well.

Cloaked in the shadows of the glitz and gaudy lights of Vegas lies a power struggle centuries old. One wrong step and Cassandra could destroy the delicate web of secrets. Now an enemy she never knew existed is after her, and the one boy who may be the missing piece to the puzzle — and her heart— is the one person she can’t afford to trust.
Enchanted Heart tells an enchanting tale of hearts, diamonds, kings, power struggles and romance. The plot is very unique and I was intrigued by the glitz and glam of Las Vegas. 

The book has that unique plot going for it but I have to admit for a large chunk of the novel I just felt confused. There was a plethora of information and not enough explanation at least not for the essential parts and that left me feeling empty. 

The characters are strong and I think without them I wouldn't have felt as strongly about the novel. The story does have that pull you in factor but it struggles to keep you and that was disappointing because there is potential, at least in my mind, for this novel to be a four or five star rated book.

Because, this is a series I'm going to hope and assume that all the things that I found lacking in this novel will be more than made up for in book two.

About Mindy Ruiz:

Mindy Ruiz lives in a sleepy Beach Town in Southern California. When she’s not writing, she spends her time chasing after three boys, making flirty eyes at her hunky husband, watching fantasy television shows, cheering for the Dallas Cowboys, and hanging out at the beach with her very large and loud Italian family.

Her career in publishing started in the 4th grade with a story about a magic, museum-hopping, chair. Now, Mindy writes young adult, new adult, and adult paranormal romance. Her books always include tormented heroes, snarky heroines, and lots of swoon-y moments that will put a smile on your face or make your heart race. Mindy is the lover of a good romance, the underdog and John Hugh’s 80′s teen movies.

When her toes aren’t in the sand or her mind isn’t in the clouds, Mindy loves hearing from readers.
