It follows Brandt & Bellamy and is a slowburn, friends to lovers work place romance. Bellamy is temporarily back home in Poplar Falls after graduating and waiting to hear back from her dream job. While home she decides to help out and work with the local vet. She is a lively, sweet, empathetic and fun loving character. She is so full of life & passionate as well as focused on what she wants her future to look like. She is such a good strong & level headed heroine who would fight hard for the people she loves. Brandt is the local vet who is still fairly new in town and from previous books we got the sense that he had an emotionally damaged background and holds in a lot of pain. I had a feeling what his back story would be but reading about the specifics was very heartbreaking. He tends to keep most people at bay & doesn't see himself worthy of love but he is so kind & caring and fits in with the town perfectly as he starts opening himself back up to creating a life worth living. Individually I loved these two & as a couple they definitely worked and am happy to have read their story but I wish the book had focused more on their journey together as well as their personal growth apart. I absolutely adore the town of Poplar Falls and all the residents and this book heavily focused on those people surrounding the couple, which is personally something I love in small town romances, as not only do you get to fall in love with a couple but the town itself. However due to this being a short book I found that it could've spent just a little more time with Brandt & Bellamy as the bool ended a lot quicker than I would've prefered. The conflict & resolution needed more time to really let that emotion build. This town is so charming and I love how close these people become like one big happy family that are ready to help pick up the pieces when one of them is down and their a still quite a few people I'm craving a story from mainly Sonia and I can't wait to see what happens next. 《book aesthetic made by me.

The Polar Falls series is one of my absolute FAVORITES and I can’t help but recommend them to everyone I know. These books are sweet, small town romances with charming characters, a quaint and rustic setting, and plots that will keep you glued to the pages. Amber Kelly KNOWS what her readers wants, and she consistently delivers. I am thrilled about this because she’s a fairly new to me author, but one I know I’ll be reading for years to come! If you’re not familiar with this series but want to know where to start, then I personally recommend reading them in order as each of the books are interconnected. However, this is not necessary, and you can truly read them in any order if you choose as each book does feature a different couple. Just be warned that if read out of order there will probably be spoilers from past books/relationships. Fragile Hearts is the 4th book in the series. This one features Bellamy and Brandt. Brandt is the new vet in town and has had a tough couple of years after his wife was murdered. His emotional scars are imbedded deep in his soul and trying to come up from the ashes proves difficult for him. That is, until the pretty blond comes into the picture and takes over as an assistant at his veterinary practice. Bellamy is a breath of fresh air. She’s down to earth, relatable, and fierce. She wears her heart on her sleeves and would do anything for anyone. However, she too is getting over a rough spot as the man she thought was her partner in life took her dream job right from under her nose. She goes back to Poplar Falls to heal her wounds and is surrounded by some of the best family anyone can ask for. Even though she’s not looking for love, she does find something with the local vet and the two must overcome all the things holding them back to find their HEA. The journey isn’t 100 percent easy, but Amber Kelly doesn’t drag it out with angst and unease and readers will feel the experience is pleasant and realistic. I do hope many readers will take a chance on this book and the series as a whole. There are not many romances that feel authentically small town like this one so you’re really in for a treat if you read it! Highly recommended.

    3.5 I hate to say, but this series went from my favorite book, Wicked Hearts to my least, Fragile Hearts. FH was far from a complete wash. Nothing remotely incensed me about it.

As much as I typically enjoy a look in at past characters from a series I’m invested in (& I did enjoy it, especially with what’s happening for Dallas & Myer these days & damn Braxton...Braxton had me crying recounting to Brandt what happened the night he & Elle lost their parents), but I think for all the longer the book was, there was too much of that & not enough getting know Bells & Brandt - together or apart. Of all the characters, both were so flatly written for most of the first 40%, so I was having a difficult time connecting to either one. Then their story came around for a bit & I was able to actually care about them, a spark was finally lit between them (no pun intended) as well as a few sweet moments, but then the story moved to kind of a corny sequence & overly predictable for a little bit. Sort of found it’s way back on track again & then it was done. Finito! Which felt rather abrupt partly at fault because of that first 40% & the book itself is on shorter side. So in a nutshell, it was... Be that as it may, I hope this isn’t the end the Poplar Falls series(another review I read sort of made it sound like it was). I have enjoyed it overall. I at least need Payne to get his head out of his own ass, & finally get my Payne & Charlotte fix with HEA. Not to mention, I think there’s the beginnings of a crackle of heat between Sonia & Foster.

    Easy and sweet. Another sweet and easy read set in good old Poplar Falls. Loved finally getting Brandt’s story. He’s been a bit of a mystery for the last couple of books, and I enjoyed getting more of him. Bellamy was also an awesome addition. She was fun in the last book, and I enjoyed her in Fragile Hearts as well. Pulling Brandt out of his shell more than anyone else has. This was just a sweet and easy read.

Also, I’m aware this was on the other books, but all the women/men stereotypes bothered me a bit more here. There were a few comments that weren’t necessarily harmful but were told as part of the small-town/ranch culture that rubbed me the wrong way. Idk if that was just me... But other than that, this was great!! Not super deep (even though we see a tiny bit more of the H troubles and how he overcomes them) and very fun!! These books are super light and quick reads. They have all that small-town magic and big close family vibe.

These books are sweet, small town romances with charming characters, a quaint and rustic setting, and plots that will keep you glued to the pages. Fragile Hearts is the 4th book in the series about Bellamy and Brandt. Brandt is the new vet in town and has a tough couple of years after what had happened to him. He still can't get over it and always blame himself thus, he moved to Poplar Falls with his mom looking for a new fresh start. That is, until a pretty blonde country girl comes into his life as an assistant at his veterinary clinic. She turns to face me and grabs the hem of her tee. She lifts it above her head and drops it at her bare feet.“Come on, Doc. Find your wild.” It’s a dare. Bellamy's life seems to be going all good, moving back to Poplar Falls to be with her family for summer after graduated and then she wants to start living her dream life that she's been planning before. But then things go sideways and changes her life forever. This is a really sweet second-chance-romance. There is a lot of pain there from the past, and a lot of uncertainty about their future, and it’s an emotional journey for Brandt as they slowly open up to each other, reveal their vulnerabilities and let each other in. They each have a lot that they need to figure out, and together there is a lot they need to work through as they figure out what it is they truly want and then fight to have it. “But you are wasting your second chance. You want to squander it all away , feeling sorry for yourself? Well, be my guest. But let’s be clear about something: it’s a choice. I told myself that you had a fragile heart, which had been shattered, and that getting close to you was a bad idea, but it turns out, I’m the one with the fragile heart, and you’re just a coward. If you’re going to let the rest of your life be filled with a whole lot of nothing so you never have the chance of experiencing pain again, then you might as well have died that day too. You’re going to have nothing but an empty life in a big, lonely house. I bet your Annie would agree with me when I say, that’s a waste. Goodbye, Brandt.” It’s a quick read with right amount of steamy time and reminiscing about the past with dash of angst. There’s not quite the amount of angst and details that I would have liked to see, but I definitely came to care about these characters and I loved watching them find their way back to each other. “Say it again,” she murmurs without opening her eyes. “I love you.” She smiles a sleepy smile. “I love you more than doughnuts.” I bark out a laugh and she grins as her heavy eyelids fall shut.

Honestly the whole crew. Her heart is so amazing even when she is hurting, she wants the best for everyone. The magnetic pull that these two have is so flawless. But the heartache of the past creeps in and can they really let go of it. Brandt’s history is so beyond heartbreaking. Like a knife in the heart you want to bawl for him and what he has been through. Then you have what happens with Bellamy and you just want to yell for her because she didn't deserve it. The title is so apt for these two. They are so fragile in so many ways. But I found they bring the best out of each other. Overall, this is a beautiful addition to the series and possibly my favorite so far. Between the passion and the heartache, you have epic wit and banter not just between the main characters but between all the past ones as they add such depth to the story. You want to laugh and cry, swoon and yell through this whole book. It has everything you need. I am in love with this author's writing and it needs to be one clicked!

Even when it looked like things weren’t quite going to be as happily ever after as I thought. This beautiful story touched me so hard. It was sexy, emotional, poignant and filled to the brim with the sexy chemistry and banter that I live for. This was another gold star hit in this incredible series.

E eu gostei bastante desse livro apesar de não ter sido o meu favorito dessa série. Aqui temos a história o novo veterinário da cidade, e que para aqueles assim como eu leram o livro anterior ficou intrigada porque deu para perceber que Brandt ainda estava machucado de algo de seu passado. Ele é um personagem daqueles que é fácil gostar logo de cara: ele carrega com ele uma culpa de algo que aconteceu de seu passado , ele ama os animais e dedica a vida a eles, é um bom homem e ao conhecer Bellamy começa a pensar que ele pode ter uma segunda chance. Bellamy é uma personagem que também é fácil gostar, ela é divertida , uma daquelas personagens que eu facilmente me veria sendo amiga . Ambos os personagens são ótimos e adorei os momentos deles juntos, e como formaram uma amizade facilmente. Eu só gostaria de ter tido mais momentos deles como casal .

Brandt is relatively new to Poplar Falls. He moved from Oregon with his mother after something tragic happened in his past. He opened his own veterinary practice. He’s desperate for some help and is grateful for Bell’s assistance. The more time Bell & Brandt spend together, the more it’s clear there’s a connection between them. But Brandt is closed off to relationships and Bell is planning to move after summer ends. They could have something great, but they could be holding themselves back from true love and happiness. Fragile Hearts by Amber Kelly is book 4 in the Poplar Falls series. This reminded me so much of book 1–Rustic Hearts—which is my favorite book in this series so far. It has a tortured, damaged hero who learns to accept love again. Like with all the books in this series, Fragile Hearts is about more than just our romantic couple. We follow along with all the other Poplar Falls characters we know and love. But unlike the last two books, we do get a little more buildup of the relationship between our two MCs. I hope that Amber Kelly decides to continue this series because there are several characters that deserve a love story! 4/5 stars.

Recently graduated from college and sights set on her dream job in Denver, an unexpected betrayal sends Bellamy back home to Poplar Falls. With nothing but time on her hands and a knowledge of animal science, Bellamy offers help to Brandt, the handsome, new veterinarian. Still grieving from his own loss, fearful of losing someone again, Brandt was a guarded but absolutely gentle hero. After glimpses of him in book three, it warmed my heart to see him welcomed with open arms into the community and friendship circle. He is the perfect fit. From tending to farm animals to house demolition projects, I loved every single scene with Bellamy and Brandt together. Always with a touch of suspense in each book, that satisfying exit of a particular character has me hopeful for more in this series. Because let’s be honest, I could read about these characters again and again.

And she finally got her own happy ending with Brandt ummm i was so excited for this cause our favorite vet has been one of the softest character and him getting with a girl like Bellamy was everything that he needed. Their romance was sweet, but they got their angsty moments, Brandt was dealing with the loss of his wife, and he was scared of starting something with Bel. Thankfully Bellamy was always there for him making him get out of his comfort zone and see that his wife death wasn't his fault. Of course in this book we once again saw our favorite group of friends, giving us few of the best chapters of this book and making us miss them. Books with strong female friendship always make me happy and these girls are everything!!! Bellamy's family love her so much they definitely act like she's still a little girl, but they can't help it....I hope we get a book about Sonia because it was heartbreaking seeing her husband treat her like this :( AND i will not stop campaigning for my Charlotte and Payne book I WILL NOT AMBER KELLY IS YOU SEE THIS PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!!!

    Cliche be damned. Small town living delivers big sized heart. Kelly is a master at captivating storytelling. In the blink of an eye my emotions got away from me. Bellamy and Brandt take slow burn to a whole new level as they two step their way into your heart. Fragile Hearts is a country song that echoes through the soul. Once it grabs you, it refuses to let go.

    How the hell does this book have so many high ratings? There was barely a romance between the 52125 friends and family. They met, there were zero sparks, no chemistry, no tension and then suddenly they kissed and voila! LOVE! HOW?

There was barely a romance between the 52125 friends and family. They met, there were zero sparks, no chemistry, no tension and then suddenly they kissed and voila! LOVE! HOW? Having read the preceding 3 books in this series, I've noted that this author has a thing for drunken first kisses. I'm fairly certain that every couple shared their first kiss after consuming copious amounts of alcohol - like to the point of not being able to walk straight. I don't think that's particularly sexy or romantic. I like the idea of my characters knowing what they're doing and being able to remember it clearly the next morning - unless that's a part of the actual plot. In this case, drinking to excess is par for the course since all the characters don't seem to understand moderation. Anyway, that's a personal gripe and others may feel differently. Brandt as a hero was pretty forgettable. There was nothing remotely interesting about him. Bellamy wasn't any better. There was no relationship here and it's so frustrating. All the telling and none of the showing. If a couple goes for dinner, let us into that moment. We want the conversation, the banter, the laughter, the sharing, the awareness of a growing attraction. None of this happens. Scenes between the leads are glossed over only to go into extreme depth about a birthday party for a side character that doesn't even include the hero! FFS! How does this do anything to move the LOVE STORY along?? And to be clear, I don't hate the side characters, I just think they get way too much time on page and it detracts from the story I signed up to read.

    While I enjoyed this book, it wasn’t my favorite of the series. We knew something was going on with Brandt from the previous book. I was glad we finally get the details of his past and I could absolutely understand his feelings. Brandt was such a great character and he was very easy to like. He puts all his time and attention into the clinic and then when he buys an old house to renovate, he then has something new to focus on. I liked Bellamy more as the story went on.

I truly didn’t get her “relationship” with Derrick. You could tell she didn’t really care for him and he must have felt more for her and thought they had something. She should have just completely ended anything she had with him when she went back to her family’s home. They were going to be working in two different states anyway. I did like her more when she started working with and spending more time with Brandt. I did think she was being a little silly when she got jealous that Brandt and Elle went to get lunch one day. She knew Elle was engaged and she wasn’t fooling around with Brandt. I wish we had more time of them as a couple. They never actually said they were dating and together until the very end.

    Oh my heart, poor Brandt. I knew something awful had happened to the handsome vet from meeting him in Elle’s book but it was so much more awful than I expected. I cannot imagine the weight of the guilt he was carrying. Lucky for him he landed in Poplar Falls, a place filled with just the right people to help him heal and begin living again. Namely Bellamy. I love their story so much. It was emotional and moving. Bellamy is an amazing woman and just what Brandt needs, someone to shake him from hi Oh my heart, poor Brandt. I knew something awful had happened to the handsome vet from meeting him in Elle’s book but it was so much more awful than I expected. I cannot imagine the weight of the guilt he was carrying. Lucky for him he landed in Poplar Falls, a place filled with just the right people to help him heal and begin living again. Namely Bellamy. I love their story so much. It was emotional and moving. Bellamy is an amazing woman and just what Brandt needs, someone to shake him from his grief. My love for all these characters increased so much in this book. They all played such a big part in helping Brandt from Braxton and Walker to his amazing mother and finally Bellamy. The town of Poplar Falls loves hard. I love this series so much and cannot wait for more! Sonia needs a HEA and I think there is a man who would love the job, and we cannot forget about Payne and Charlotte. Oh and side note way to go Everette took you long enough! Also the covers for this series are beyond breathtaking. **I was generously provided with an ARC of this book and am voluntarily leaving my review**

Just as the lust turns to like towards potential love visions of his past happen and his walls crash down and a job offer comes in for Bellamy. Will he be smart enough to catch the woman he loves? Or will he let her go? I really enjoyed this book and this author's style and characters. These are just well-developed country, small town folks. It missed 5 stars due to a real angst-y ending. I like that climactic do-or-die moment to be bigger. Other than that? I loved it.

    Amber Kelly wrote such an epic series that won my heart over. Poplar Falls has come to an end and I I am so sad to say goodbye to this amazing series. I was so excited for Fragile Hearts when I found out this was Brandt's book. I was so intrigued by him form the previous book. Brandt keeps every woman at arms length, he doesn't get attached, and he doesn't do relationships. He experienced something so tragic and prefers to live in the past rather than the present.

So when Bellamy comes into his life, he starts seeing that he is capable of love and new beginnings. Bellamy was amazing, she has the biggest heart and even when she's been burned, she doesn't give up. When she comes back home, the last thing she expects is to want to stay. Bellamy has a plan, and that plan doesn't include falling in love and staying in Poplar Falls. Bellamy and Brandt were amazing, I loved how Bellamy showed Brandt that second chances are possible.

    With tragedy in his past, Brandt has come to Poplar Falls to find new beginnings. What he never expected was for Bellamy to come home from college and have an instant connection with her. But with sparks comes apprehension - can he open his heart when other things still hold it captive? Will Bellamy find comfort in a future she never thought she wanted?

I loved not only the connection between Brandt and Bellamy, put also the rest of the gang and family members in the community. Poplar Falls has always felt like a town I would love to visit and this book just brought that feeling home even more.
