{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} of The Shape of My Heart by Ann Aguirre

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

GENRE: New Adult Contemporary
THEME: Romance, Mature


Some people wait decades to meet their soul mate. Courtney Kaufman suspects she met hers in high school only to lose him at seventeen. Since then, Courtney's social life has been a series of meaningless encounters, though she's made a few close friends along the way. Especially her roommate Max Cooper, who oozes damaged bad-boy vibes from every pore.

Max knows about feeling lost and trying to move beyond the pain he's been on his own since he was sixteen. Now it's time to find out if he can ever go home again, and Courtney's the only one he trusts to go with him. But the trip to Providence could change everything because the more time he spends with Courtney, the harder it is to reconcile what he wants and what he thinks he deserves.

It started out so simple. One misfit helping another. Now Max will do anything to show Courtney that for every heart that's ever been broken, there's another that can make it complete.


The final installment of the 2B Trilogy brings the readers back to where it all started. This time the story follows Nadia’s (from the first book) roommates and friends Courtney and Max. After the last book I was excited to step back into the college life and see what happened to the friends left behind and boy was it an intense read!

The Shape of My Heart follows Courtney, who lost the love of her life at a young age and never knew she’d fill the piece of her heart again. She and her roommate Max have grown close, so close that Max decides to open up about his family’s past and asks her to go with him to a funeral. Courtney and Max realize there might be something more between them, both of them are about to discover that relationships are a risk and sometimes the hardest part is letting go of the past.

Courtney is the ultimate cool chick, a punk rocker girl with a sarcastic and fun personality that makes people around her laugh. She lost her best friend and love Eli when she was in high school, its always been something that has stayed with her. She and Max became close after she move in and their chemistry is off the hook. They really complimented each other and seriously helped each other through some tough subjects. Courtney reminded me of my best friend, she’s really easy to connect too and someone you definitely want around. She also comes from a privileged life and its something she doesn’t shove it people’s faces, which I respected in a character. What was a nice original touch was that she was bisexual and had such a free loving spirit. My only issue was the inter-monologue with her dead boyfriend that distracted me a bit from everything else that was going on. Overall she was a great character who I think a lot of people will enjoy seeing her grow as a character.

Max is a complex guy, when we left last him he was a bit broken hearted by his former roommate Lauren. But something about Courtney brought him back to life and she was someone he could easily open up too. As I mentioned before their chemistry was awesome, but overall so innocent and cute to see them really learn to love and understand one and other. Max had a tough upbringing and had to practically raise himself because of his good for nothing father. I loved that he was able to move past the pain and reconnect with the people who actually loved him. Overall I think for the all the male characters in the series, Max grew the most and had a lot more on his shoulders that added to his persona. I adored his innocents and respected him for raising himself into a good person.

Overall this was a nice ending to the series, in the end we get to see where all the other characters ended up and I love that even with all the complication it all worked out. Each character had a lot to learn and a lot of growing up to do, but they each found that happiness and something they really wanted to do with their lives.
