Ginger was the little princess, pure of heart, loved and coddled but not spoiled. She is young and a little naïve. Her mistakes are borne out of hurt. The direction of her life was defined by what she couldn’t have.
Josiah has loved Ginger all his life. He’s a good, solid guy, and lives to please her and love her. He believes he has enough romantic love for the both of them.
Cain is the tearaway. His cousin is one of the two people in his life who makes time for him and loves him unconditionally. Of the two of them, Cain believes Josiah was the better man, and the one who deserved the princess. But, it didn’t stop him loving Ginger too, or denying that love.
I adored this tale! It was beautiful and heart-breaking but, ultimately, life-affirming. It’s about passion, sacrifice, survival, grief, pure love, forgiveness, and second chances. Such a gorgeous story! Thoroughly recommend.
This is the story of the love of a young girl, Ginger, from childhood to adulthood, for two very different cousins, Joshua & Cain who love both her and have great love & respect for each other. There is an expectation from family that she will marry one cousin, whilst her heart tells her that she loves and should be with the other one.
Which way should she turn and how can she hurt the other one. How can the cousins end up with their heart's desire whilst remaining true to each other.
I must admit it took me longer to 'get into' this storyline than it usually does with Katy's books and the twists and turns and ultimate resolution are not what I was expecting but make this book a fascinating read. It along with the others in the series are books I would recommend to anyone who has not yet read any of Katy's 'Modern Fairytales.
“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 ›
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
