“We were two cousins in love with the same girl.”
This was my first Katy Regnery read and it certainly won’t be my last. Ginger’s Heart is a contemporary romance and a modern adaption of Little Red Riding Hood, the three main characters being Virginia McHuid (Ginger), Cain Wolfram and Josiah Woodman.
Cain and Josiah were cousins, born to twin sisters but that is where the similarities end. These two were chalk and cheese, at least on the outside.
Cain was the wolf in this tale by name and nature. He was dark haired, cocky, arrogant and a bit of a manwhore but really all this man wanted was to love and be loved. His parents had divorced and he was a little lost on where his place was in life. His dad worked at Ginger’s parent’s stables and he lived and breathed horses. His dad had no time for him really, at least that is what it felt like. He had nothing in common with his dad and his only attraction to the stables was Ginger herself.
“He was uncouth, bad mannered, irreverent, impertinent, and irresponsible, with a mouth like a sailor before he’d become a sailor, and a dick that had seen so much indiscriminate action, it’s a wonder it still worked.”
Woodman was the golden child, blonde, perfect in every way, he worked at the stables and excelled at everything he turned his hand to. He was loyal, respectful, well mannered, sweet and caring. He was the ideal son and everyone loved him.
“Because the golden boy, the fair-haired son, the prince, was supposed to win the princess. Not the villain. Not the devil. The prince, damn it. And yet, no matter how much he tried to be everything she wanted, it was Cain who owned her heart.Read more ›
Ginger’s Heart is based on the fairytale Little Red Riding Hood. But instead of it being a cut and dry romance, Ginger is torn between Josiah Woodman and Cain Wolfram, two cousins. The three of them were inseparable as children, but as they grow up things become more complicated and Ginger knows that one day she’ll have to choose. Who will she pick? The golden good boy Woodman or the lusty sinful Wolfram? I loved that the concept was based on a fairytale, using the three figures and the grandmother but that’s where the similarities ended. I really enjoyed the book as it evolved on it’s own to become something independent and interesting.
Now you now I’m not a fan of love triangles, but this sort of worked for me. It still had some niggles and bits that didn’t quite work personally, but overall I enjoyed the complicated dynamic and the way she was torn for very different reasons between both men. This then feeds into the development of the novel and the characters.
I appreciated the development of the individual characters, how I felt about them altered as they grew up and changed themselves. I think that the the complex emotions of desperation, guilt, confusion, lust and loyalty that comes with their relationships contributed to this hugely and it made for a good read. Life’s not easy when the heart and the head are in conflict.
A lot of reviews have already said that this book will make you cry. I scoffed at that because I’m a hard nut – but I did!Read more ›
Let me tell you a little secret, I'm not a fan a books written in the 3rd, in fact I'd go as far as saying I avoid them, so what was I doing reading a book in the 3rd, I'll tell you, I was falling in love, having my emotions torn and my world turned upside down. I'm not quite sure how she did it, but she did and I loved it.
Ginger's Heart is beautiful, it is not a traditional love triangle in anyway, girl does not meet two guys and play them off against each other.
This is a story of friendship, family, bonds and most importantly love and a self discovering journey. Add in a touch of guilt, protection, and heartbreaking moments this book has it all, Ginger has a beautiful heart, Woodman is honest and caring and Cain is bad boy but with a pure heart X
The story had me at "jump to the one you love the most"
The 3 way POV stood out as clever and thoughtful as allowed you the reader to build a relationship and invest time in each of the characters separately. To then only have your world turned upside down.
Now as I said I don't read books in the 3rd, but the way Katy writes and the words she so carefully choose to put on paper resonated with me and it propelled me forward into the book until I was so lost in the story and the emotion of the book that it didn't matter anymore
I highly recommend this book and Katy, you and you alone have converted me, 5 wonderful stars x
