Book Cover ~ Disclosure of the HeartSixteen years is a long time to wait for your true love to reappear, and, anyway, Nicki Johnson couldn’t wait for the impossible to happen. Hard life lessons have taught her that fairy tales are children’s stories, and fate is cruel. Burying her hopes, she’s spent the last sixteen years focused and driven toward her career, and it’s landed her with a job at the White House with a gem of a boyfriend. But when her high school love, Adam Kincaid, walks into the White House as a BBC reporter, Nicki’s world is thrown into turmoil as she relives their past. Adam has come back for her, but has he arrived too late?

Let me begin by admitting that I have not read the first book in this series, Beside Your Heart, and I regret not doing it before reading Disclosure of the Heart.

We all wonder what it would be like if only. . . There is someone in the past, whether a first love or another love that leave us wondering if we could only get back together what would it be like. Nicki Johnson gets a chance to find out in Disclosure of the Heart.

Nicki seems to have the world at her feet, working at the White House as the Deputy Press Secretary. But on that first morning, there he sat . . . Adam Kincaid, now a BBC correspondent covering the Washington DC office.

Adam Kincaid, the one that got away. Adam Kincaid, who Nicki already knows is involved with someone else, even though Adam and his girlfriend find an ocean between them at this point in their lives.

Adam had been her first love, her anchor during the storm. He’d also left her, broken hearted, even though his leaving was inevitable, it seems.

At first site, again, Nicki admits “I was seventeen again, with a scarred body and a shattered life.”

Enter Juan Carlos, the next level of complication. Juan Carlos is Nicki’s loving, wonderful “Latin lover” of a boyfriend. And we all know about jealous Latin men, as her boss points out.

Nicki has it all, a solid career, a boyfriend with whom she can envision a future . . . and then it all comes unhinged with a dance, one slow dance.

I won’t spoil the entire book, although I definitely could. I have learned to love Nicki and Adam in one volume of Mary Whitney’s Heart Series. There are some disappointing moments for me, but that has to do with my view of the world rather than anything in Ms. Whitney’s writing. Ms. Whitney writes to wring every drop of emotion out of you as you read. She had me talking out loud to myself, yelling at the book’s characters, all the while hoping and praying  for the ending to be what I want it to be, a wonderful happily-ever-after.

I give Mary Whitney Fives Stars (all gold) for Disclosure of the Heart. I will be reading Beside Your Heart before the next volume is released!

“It’s an emotional story that will take the reader back to those feelings that made the late teen years such a powerful time.”

Late one night Nicki Johnson plays with emotional fire and Googles her high school love, only to find his name splashed across the British gossip columns. Back in his native England, Adam Kincaid is successful and dating a woman from an aristocratic family like his own. With a career in politics, Nicki’s no slouch, but she knows Adam is living a world away from her life.

Yet there was a time he was no farther than the next locker. Nicki will never forget their year together in high school—the year of her sister’s death, the year her mother checked out. Adam helped Nicki through suffocating grief, and she led him through a coming of age. Was it just high school, or was it something more?
