Book Description:

What would you do in the face of the ultimate betrayal? This is the question that faces Mattie, Sarah, and Jeremy as they negotiate the often precarious game of love. In MK Harkins’s riveting debut novel, Intentional, nothing is ever quite as it seems at first glance. This story of bitter ends and new beginnings is told through the perspectives of all three of the main players, providing readers with a unique insight into the motivations and schemes of all involved.

Mattie and Jeremy are deliriously happy, engaged to be married, and looking forward to a lifetime of love. It all crumbles away, however, when Mattie comes across evidence of a massive betrayal. Unable to remain in the town that reminds her with every aching step of the love she lost, Mattie flees to Washington in an attempt to start a new life. There she meets Cade, a tattooed engineer by day and lead singer in a rock band by night. Their mutual attraction enflames Mattie, even as her heart still aches for her former fiancé. Just when it appears that Mattie may have found another stab at happiness, her past comes rushing back in the form of Jeremy himself. As events unfold, it becomes clear to Mattie that the trauma from her past may not have been quite what it seemed. Will Mattie ever learn the truth behind what really happened? And if she does, could it mean a new beginning with Jeremy, or will it be too late?

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars

My Review:
Oh my gosh, the events in this book!! While I read, I had the upper hand because I didn’t know what was yet to come. When I sign up for blog tours (months before my posting date)I make sure that I read the synopsis then, so that later on when I get the book I’ve already forgotten what it was about. I do this because I think that synopsis’s tell more than what should be told. And it’s way more fun knowing that you’re interested in the book, not knowing what the book is about.
Anyways, the events are soooo unpredictable and have you hanging onto the edge of your seat. Yet, the love story is sadly easy to guess. While reading along, the story had my head spinning and my heart jumping. The author did an excellent job at fully developing the characters. Although, there was one I particularly didn’t really feel for. And I know I’m going to be frowned upon for saying this but I don’t think that the main character, Mattie, is well-developed. My reason for thinking this is because she just seems too good. It just seemed like she did nothing but good while everything bad was coming at her. I tried hard to feel for her but it felt like I was more feeling for the event. Even though I can relate to her, she seemed too perfect and just not human enough.
The mini-battle between Cade and Jeremy.. Personally, I didn’t like the outcome. I always love a love triangle, though! Mattie has two smokin’ hot guys drooling over her. Jeremy, the lawyer, And Cade, the nerd during the day and lead singer of a rock band at night. To  be honest, I really couldn’t get over Cade. I will now declare him my new book boyfriend!!  My heart melts for nerds. But he can also sing and play guitar, he is in a band. Not just any band. A rock band. And to top that off, he has tattoos!! Need I say more?
Jeremy is so sweet! His character was the most developed. I enjoyed reading about him. I just flat out enjoyed the book. And there is no doubt that I will definitely read the next book!


About the Author

I have always been a voracious reader. After hitting
a dry spell of reading material, I decided to write the kind of book I would
like to read. This resulted in the creation of my debut novel, Intentional, with a sequel already in
the works.

When I’m not writing novels, I enjoy traveling the
world, rain, watching movies and cooking. I also run my own business in my
current hometown of Mercer Island, Washington.
