This plot has been echoed quite a lot already.

Echoes of the Heart by Alyssa J Montgomery
★★★☆☆

The blurb:

She betrayed him and left him to be with another. Now that she’s alone again, nothing is going to stop him from coming for her.

Australian media tycoon Jake Formosa does not believe in forgiving…or forgetting. So when he discovers that Amanda — the woman who once broke his heart — is newly widowed, he immediately enacts his revenge. Jake is intent on making Amanda remember him, and making her suffer for what she did. He will leave her broken and alone, and finally have his closure.

But Amanda is not the sweet girl that Jake remembers, and her life is far from perfect. As the web of lies surrounding her begins to unravel, Jake finds himself once again ensnared. Can he learn to overlook the past and risk his heart again?



First and foremost, let me tell you I am Filipino. And you might be saying, “so what?”. If you were Filipino, you would know that we love our drama. Almost every tv show at night is heavy on drama, the bawl your eyes type. And I can tell you this story has been done. Plenty of times.

Though Echoes of the Heart may not be highly original and predictable, Alyssa Montgomery’s writing can deliver. Though storyline is rushed, I have liked the characters she had created.
