Review- I Am Yours by Faith Sullivan

Goodreads Summary:

Adam is at a crossroads.

He has Katie on his mind and Jada in his bed.

Now with the ultimate choice before him, he must decide between fantasy and reality. 

Katie's his dream girl, but Jada's his best friend, his partner. As a paramedic, he's supposed to save lives, not wreck them. Yet his failure to commit leaves a trail of heartache in his wake.

Things come to a head at his brother's wedding when a surprise announcement leaves Adam scrambling to pick up the pieces. Sure, women find his shaggy blond hair and aquamarine eyes irresistible. But to him, sex is nothing more than a means of escape ... until it turns into a psychological trap.

His mind is telling him one thing, while his heart is beating another. He's not sure what he wants when it comes to a serious relationship. Sorting out his feelings, he finally comes to a startling realization. He is capable of love. 

But what if it's too late?

Heartbeat series:


*NOTE: We (The Readdicts) received a copy of I Am Yours by Faith Sullivan in exchange for an honest review. We thank Faith for the book! 

Author Faith Sullivan's Heartbeat trilogy has been one of the most mind boggling books I have read so far. Each book has been one of those books that keep you at the edge of your seat till the very ending. Luckily for me, I devour cliffhanger endings but when it comes to this particular series, I was dying to know how everything will be wrapped up and I feel proud to say that even though the whole plot of I Am Yours wasn't how I pictured it to be, the ending was exactly what I was hoping it'd be. 
Like I did in my reviews of the first book and the second book, I won't be talking much about the story, but I will tell you about the three main characters from whose points of views the book goes by- Jada, Adam and Katie. I must say that I quite liked reading from three points of views, especially when it was one guy and two girls. A three people point of view isn't usually the case in love triangles, so this was pretty good to see. 


Jada is one kick ass heroine. She was strong, supportive and steady in I Am Yours as she was in Come What May. There was one point where I was really irritated with her, but I think I understood why she had to certain things and above anything else, I was most happy for Jada since by the end of this book, she finally seemed at peace with herself. 


I really liked Adam in Heartbeat but he made me not like him in Come What May. He had changed so much that I couldn't believe he did everything he did. In I Am Yours too, there were times when I just did not like Adam and his way to deal with situations but then again, there were times when I thought he was being pretty good overall. 


Katie's side of the story is something different altogether. I just do not understand her. In Heartbeat, I liked how sweet and innocent Katie was and in I Am Yours, the Katie we meet seemed just like the one we first met and the two- personality wise and in a general life situations sort of way- are so similar to one another that it's highly creepy. 

While the three main characters each had certain qualities I liked and many qualities I didn't like, they were very unique and well portrayed by Faith Sullivan, who has created three very creative and quite interesting people. Not just them, even side characters like Adam's brother Brian and his fiancé Kelly and her guide Savoy were each distinct and well written characters. 
Like I have said before, this series is mind boggling and I'm not sure if I've even understood the whole story yet but what I can say and what matters most is that I enjoyed the books overall. While Come What May remains my favourite of the series, I'd say that I Am Yours did answer questions but I would still like to know more. Anyway, I loved how much of psychological and mind games were involved in the story. This book was a short and much needed read that I found pretty good.



  1. Another author I shall read I think, or you'll kick my ass I assume ;) You should totally go for it. It sounds like a great story and I love the sound of Jada! Go kick-ass girls. I'm so glad you enjoyed this one and I hope you'll enjoy next much more. Great review, Sarika :)

    1. Hahaha! This was the last one in the series and the series overall is pretty great so yeah, I shall make you read it sometime. Thank you, Tanja!

  2. I am reading this one right now. I love how you wrote your review. I agree that this series is mind boggling, and makes you think. I always end these books with more questions then I originally had. I'm hoping all of them will be answered, but it sounds like you still had questions at the end of the story.
