The Shape of My Heart is the third book in the 2B Trilogy by Ann Aguirre and like the other two previous ones it can be read as a standalone. The 2B Trilogy follows what happens to a group of friends in college who share one apartment . Readers of the series will be familiar with our hero Max but not so much with Courtney are one of a kind female lead. Everything in this book clicked, from the wonderful way the friends to lover trope was told, to the characters emotional depth, their flaws and strength, the honest way the relationship developed. It had all the elements of what a good NA angsty romance should have without so much of the drama. It was both a love story and coming of age novel, of Max and Courtney's journey into adulthood and what it really means to have a relationship with another person. Excellent read and my favorite of the series.
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.
