My Heart is Yours
by Amanda Leigh
Release Date: 06/10/15
Samantha Marie Ramsden has three brothers. Craig, John and Matt. When tragedy strikes their family, Craig takes on the task of becoming his siblings legal guardian. It’s hard enough being someone’s guardian, but when you’ve only recently entered adulthood yourself it’s almost impossible to know where to draw the line between sibling and ‘parent’.
This is made even harder on him when Sam starts to get close to a long time friend, Jason. It looks like their friendship could turn into something more. An idea that Craig has never been too happy with. Spanning six years, My Heart is Yours explores family, friendship, love and much more. As well as asking the question: Would you defy family for love?

Sam realized she didn’t say Jason was like a brother. But how could she? He wasn’t like a brother. He was. . .he was. . .what was he? All the guys said he’d liked her for years. And when she thought about it there were always little signs. Holding her hand, gently pushing a strand of hair out of her face, the way he looked at her sometimes. Then, of course, there was her seventeenth birthday where they almost kissed. Sam definitely liked him, and she was pretty sure that he liked her, but he never did anything about it. Except for when they almost kissed.
“What am I?’ He asked.
“What?” Sam nearly squeaked out,
“Well, Craig, John and Matt are you brothers. You’re not blood-related, but technically they are your brothers. Shawn and Chris are like brothers to you. So what am I?”
Sam sat up a little too quickly. The room spun for a second. She rubbed her temples and took a deep breath.
“I don’t know.” She said with her eyes still closed. Slowly she opened them and Jason noticed that today they were green.
Jason sat up as well. “You don’t know?” He laid his hand on top of hers. As soon as his hand touched hers, she felt the same way she felt the day of her seventeenth birthday. The day that they almost kissed. She didn’t know why, it’s not as if he’d never touched her hand before. But this was different somehow.
“Why not?” He asked.
“I don’t know.” She said again.
“Why don’t you know?”
“I don’t know.”
“Why do you keep saying ‘I don’t know’?” He smiled.
She smiled a little too. “I don’t know.”
“Why aren’t you looking at me?” He asked, putting a hand under her chin and gently turning her face towards his.
She looked directly into his dark brown eyes, slowly answering his question, and they leaned closer with every word. “I. . .don’t. . .know.”
