I read this book online for PIF, and I have to give Jaimey Grant credit: she knows how to keep a reader's attention. The characters were believable and well-drawn. And from the very beginning, the book pulled me in. I did feel that the story got off track in a few places, where details seemed to be there that weren't directly relevant and too much time was spent on secondary characters, but all in all, I enjoyed the read. Romance isn't ordinarily my thing, but Heartless kept my attention (which is especially tough to do on the computer screen--where my email, and various social networking sites summon). I have to give the author her kudos for that.
This was an eye-opening and intense introduction into the world of anorexia. Moreover, the book is timely in that it speaks to an audience of men and women who have grown up in the electronic age, when everything about our lives is to be shared and promoted. It seems awkward at first, for the protagonist to be filmed about her battle with an eating disorder, but in being exposed and vulnerable, Lydia learns to reconcile her outlook, learns to look within.
