Some words last forever…

It’s been six months since Ashlyn Daniels was kicked out of her home. Six months since she stood up to her abusive stepfather and got a busted rib-and seeing all her things set ablaze in a backyard bonfire-for her trouble. Never going back. She doesn’t need trouble…especially if trouble is tattoo artist Lane Garrett, who’s six-feet-plus of tattooed hotness and a complete ass.

Lane has spent the last decade fighting to support his family. To protect them. There’s no room for romance, even with a fragile (yet amusingly feisty) stunner…even if she somehow manages to invade his world and his heart.

But while some secrets are as visible as ink on the skin, others must remain hidden at all costs…

According to me a Prologue or the 1st Chapter of a book is THE reflection - SO it must capture my attention from page 1 I will continue a few more chapters to give the Book a fair chance to change my mind!

When Ashlyn was 10, her mom married her step-dad. Her step-dad is a controlling, hateful man who verbally and physically abused her and tore her down enough that she started to believe all the awful things he said about her. When she finally stood up to him, he kicked her out of the hous... ...more

***3.75 STARS***
This was a pretty cute little story that sucked me right in from the very start and made me smile in many parts of this book. It was cool to watch Ashlyn's transformation from a frightful young girl (skiddish from years of abuse), trying to get on her feet after being thrown out o... ...more

You know when you finish a book and you just have to...sit and stare at a wall for, oh, i don't know, THE REST OF YOUR LIFE just to contemplate all the things you learned and the characters you met and...

Oh, my god.

I think I need to take a few deep breaths and start again.

By Courtney August 02, 2015

Ashlyn was the last person to think she could find love. Her sorted past checkered with years of verbal and emotional abuse had shattered her perception of emotions to the point where all she was familiar with was fear. Every decision she made and every action she committed stemmed from her deep... ...more

-Siempre busco mensajes dentro de las historias, y pues con esta me quedo con un buen sabor de boca, su mensaje fue captado a la perfección, no es sobre sexo o si soy capar de entregarme a alguien, es sobre la confianza, seguridad y paz que te brinde, eso es lo que te debe hacer sentir la pers... ...more

By Rhianna July 20, 2015

Brutal and beautiful, one of my favorite books this year.

Holy so-similar-to-my-life-story Batman! Having attended a couple of online book chats before I read WRITTEN ON MY HEART I already knew that the author had drawn from her own personal experiences with homelessness for the story. What I did... ...more

Esta lectura me sorprendió por su inicio, fue bastante adictiva. Disfruté mucho de los primeros capítulos y de la relación de no-te-soporto de los protas, teniendo diálogos y situaciones bastante entretenidos.
Lane es todo un amor, bajo esa coraza de idiota que expone a simple vista, se esconde un... ...more

Happy Release Week!

This author is new to me. From the blurb, I think I wanted to see the stepfather get what he deserved, so I read this. And it was really good. When I read that Cole Gibson lived through some of the situations in this book, well, it made me shudder for her. She's a strong woman,... ...more

By Veroo March 24, 2016

Tuve sentimientos encontrados (como con tantos libros) con esta historia.
Ashlyn… Un común denominador que encuentro con este tipo de personajes es que por haber tenido una infancia dura, creen que luego eso puede trasladarse a su vida adulta. Creen que están “rotas” y que van a arruinar la vida d... ...more

By Dana July 14, 2015

Some books resonate with bits of our past. This book was one that did just that. Ash is a broken girl trying to put the pieces back together. Growing up in an abusive household, she escapes and tries to find her feet. Fear makes up her world and she struggles to make heads or tails of what she ne... ...more

By XxTainaxX July 26, 2015

For a girl who's been through so much, Ashlyn keeps it together pretty well. Her move forward attitude resonated with me. Lane is sexy and attracted to her but he has commitments that he must put ahead of his own interests. It's fun to see them find their way. Great story. Big kudos for not makin... ...more

By Monica July 11, 2015

Something that Ashlyn said in this story stayed with me and that was “it doesn’t matter is you have a mom and dad, it just matters if you have love.”

This is my first read by Ms. Cole and I totally loved it. There was no way that I was going to stop reading this book and not know what was going to... ...more

This book was epic! I loved it so much. The romance, the chemistry everything was so well executed. I’m so glad I signed up for this one. :-)

By Sparkymom July 17, 2015

This was my first experience with this author, but it is not likely to be my last. While I don't typically read books listed as YA, something about the description of this book when I saw it on Net Galley really caught my interest. When they offered me an ARC for review, I was excited, but then k... ...more

Books, Coffee & Passion

Written On My Heart was the first book I’ve read by Cole Gibsen but it certainly won’t be the last. There’s something about this beautiful story that I just can’t put in words and that’s why I’ve been postponing this review. Words can’t do it justice. You have got to r... ...more

This is the first book I've read by this author. The cover caught my attention and the book description seemed interesting.

Written on My Heart is told from the point of view of Ashlyn and Lane.

Ashlyn has had a hard life. Everything changed for her when her mother remarried. Her stepfather is a ve... ...more

By Camila December 29, 2015

Una historia conmovedora.
Si bien es un libro super corto, en donde las cosas se desarrollan rápido, la historia no es nada plana ni el amor que contiene. En pocas paginas la autora nos ha hecho adentrarnos, zambullirnos y perdernos en las oscuras profundidades de la vida de los personajes y lo du... ...more

By Caro July 29, 2015

Gotta say, this wasn’t what I was expecting, it was better.

I thought I’d be reading something much darker, even though that usually scares the crap out of me, lol. This was such a great read, I truly couldn’t put it down.

We have Ashlyn and Lane, two people with troubled pasts, particularly Ashlyn... ...more

By Dai Alvarado July 01, 2016

ayyy, que bonita historia.

Me he quedado sorprendida, esperaba algo más dramático pero me encontré con una lectura ligera, divertida, romántica y si, tiene drama. Los personajes están un poco jodidos pero no se me hizo cargado ni nada de eso.

Ashlyn me encantó (creo que me estoy volviendo suave, úl... ...more

Written on my Heart was an emotional and heartfelt read.

I really enjoyed reading Written on my Heart, it was one of those books that you didn't want to put down.

About the author

Cole Gibsen

At seventeen, Cole Gibsen found herself homeless with only a beat-up Volkswagen Jetta and a bag of Goodwill clothing to her name. The only things that got her through the nights she spent parked in truck stops and cornfields were the stacks of books she checked out from the library along with her trusty flashlight. It was because of the escape these books gave her that Cole vowed to become a writer so she could provide the same escape to teens who needed to escape the reality of their lives.
