A friends to lovers romance with a fairytale retelling twist. When I was five, my mother died. When I was seventeen, my father was murdered. I try to heal and count down the days to escape from my evil stepmother. Little do I know, she's also counting down. On my eighteenth birthday, I find myself orphaned, homeless, and broken-hearted. The only place I can seek shelter is in a home with seven guys. I’m living in an all new world, making new friends, and unraveling the mysteries of the boys surrounding me. Can I unravel my own mystery and finally heal from my father’s death, perhaps with a prince charming to stop my bleeding heart? Stop My Bleeding Heart is a contemporary coming-of-age tale loosely based on Snow White.

On her eighteenth birthday, Jade's stepmother kicks her out of the house without any warning, right after her perfect boyfriend dumps her. With nowhere else to go, Jade leaves the state to live with her Aunt Janet. Here, she meets a whole new set of people on top of her cousin and her friends list grows. Among the group of boys that live with her aunt is Onyx. He immediately singles her out and makes it his mission to make her smile.

Jade has experienced a lot of hard times between losing both her mother and father, then getting kicked out of her childhood home. She's lucky to have her Aunt Janet who will always have her back, even if it means going up against the stepmother who stole everything Jade's dad worked for. As she goes through the days at her new school, Jade goes through all the high school motions of dating and making memories with friends. But among them, Onyx stands out with his consistent presence in her life.

STOP MY BLEEDING HEART is a contemporary romance with a Snow White twist. The seven dwarfs are the boys living with Aunt Janet who accept her in their lives. Onyx is the sweetest person in existence and he's always there for Jade, even when she's talking to Tad and doesn't really "see" him. I love the Snow White themes and how the author made it more "hers" rather than following the classic tale. This is the first book I've read by Victoria Anders and I certainly don't see if being the last. Her fast-paced and clean, sweet writing leaves me wanting to discover more from her.


Final Verdict: I would recommend this to fans of fairytales, Snow White, contemporary romance, and coming of age. Everyone deserves a dwarf/prince like Onyx in their lives.
