I struggled with the star rating for this, I couldn't come up with one until last minute and after a discussion with Ash. It's a very strong three stars for me, almost moving into a four, but then is it quite a four? I think I've decided to go with a three stars - but I'm giving it plus meaning that it's so, so, so very close to being a four for me. I really enjoyed this author and feel that we can expect some really great things from her. I'm being picky and fussy, but only because as I've said before, erotica and romance are my favorite genres - so my reviews are in respect of everything I've read. So while Cheri Marie, for me, is good, she's not quite 4* like Jessica Scott, Christine Feehan or Sherrilyn Kenyon- yet.
The storyline is sweet and endearing. Arianna runs a company that helps military men and their families after they've finished active duty called Angels for Heroes. At the beginning of the book she has an emotionally and then physically abusive boyfriend Liam. Things turn nasty with Liam and while going through a messy break up, Arianna tries to hold it all together and keep dedicating herself to her work. Despite everything going on, she puts on her favourite dress (the one Liam said she was too fat for), slaps some makeup on and goes to the fundraiser she's arranged for her Angels. There she runs into a gorgeous man named Landon and the attraction is instant.
As I've said in a previous review (Torn by Scarlet le Clair) erotica has the issue of repetition. Here it's not actually too bad; it's certain words rather than phrases. I found the words nip, flick and slam in almost every sex scene. As for the actually sex scenes, they’re very steamy and well written.Read more ›

Here goes: Cheri Marie nailed it on her debut. This book has a wonderful story line and I feel like it flowed very well. One of the best things about the book is that the heroine Arianna is not weak or spineless. She’s independent and doesn’t need anyone to take care of her; she can do that all on her own. She's smart, educated and a very successful CEO of an amazing Charity Organization that helps Veterans. Most romance novels portray the women as weak and needs a man. This was not the case for Arianna. Even though Arianna was coming from an abusive past relationship she still stood strong and didn't let it beat her down. She kept her head held high. I think her character is someone other women would and could look up to.
Our HERO Landon is a Veteran Marine who is suffering with PTSD. He also serves as a CEO of a Veteran Hospital. He feels lost and broken and not sure what he's living for.
A fated "collision" brings these two together. At a Charity luncheon that Arianna’s company puts on. The sight of Landon takes Arianna's breath away, but it also does something to Landon, it lets him know that he's not alone and just maybe there is something worth living for.
Both Arianna & Landon have a tragic past that they're both trying to overcome. They soon find out that they are much better together than alone. The love that these two finally opened themselves up for was beautiful and heartfelt. I loved the protector in Landon. He was sweet, kind, caring and very compassionate. I think the journey that these two had was beautifully written and I can’t wait to see what else Cheri Marie has in store for us.
I really hope Cheri Marie continues on this journey. I see a lot of great potential for her and I’m looking forward to hearing more about Landon & Arianna in upcoming books. Hopefully Xavier is one of those books.
I strongly suggest you give the book a try you won’t regret it. It’s an amazing journey, of finding one self, redemption, love and being free.
Landon was a former Marine, whose PTSD had left him broken and feeling worthless. But as a very wealthy man and the successful CEO of a military hospital, he decided to attend a charity event to help his fellow soldiers. When he saw the beautiful and curvy Arianna, she had sparked a light inside of him, and he knew, just then, that he was saved.
Both Arianna and Landon had tragic pasts that still haunted them, literally. Their hearts became aligned by a common cause, and that is, to help war heroes live a normal lives again. But in the end, they also became each other's heroes. Their love for each other saved them and gave them their happily ever after .
The plot and characters of Hearts Aligned moved and affected me , especially in those episodes between Arianna and her ex-boyfriend , and Landon's internal conflicts. But Landon was a really a very sweet , generous , protective and passionate lover. He did so many swoon-worthy things to Arriana , I was even a bit jealous of her in those moments.
Cherie Marie , as an author, has potential for stardom. She's very talented . Be that as it may, there is also definitely a room for improvement , like lesser redundant phrasing and a more elucidation of the main characters' backstory when necessary, to evoke more understanding on why they are what they are. For instance, if Landon's backstory had been narrated in the first chapter or as a prologue before he attended that benefit event, it would be more astounding to me as a reader , and this book would have been more phenomenal, in my opinion.
HEARTS ALIGNED is a beautiful DEBUT novel. Cherie Marie has a lot of potential because of her ability to pull heartstrings through her words. This book certainly did. It's sweet, sexy, and heart-warming at the same time. For a first novel, this is a really good one, and I'm looking forward to read her next book.
N.B. An advanced copy was provided to me for an honest review.
Arianna has to be one of my favorite female characters that I have read recently. I love everything she represents. Arianna is accepting of her size and body image is treated subtly, yet gracefully in this story. She is a great character for women to read about. She is feisty and independent and stands up for herself. I truly loved her character.
Don't even get me started on Landon. Even when I wanted to strangle him for some of the decisions he made, I still loved him. She is a sweet, sexy, alpha male that I completely fell for.
I will not get into all the secondary characters, but I really enjoyed meeting them as well and can't wait to read their stories, especially Xavier's.
Hearts Aligned is beautifully written and will take you on a journey of true love that you definitely don't want to miss!
