5 Books That Will Lovingly Rip Your Heart Out

These books will tear your heart out, stomp on it, then put it back gently.

Women. We're all emotional what with all of our emotions and hormones. Reading a good book should make you feel emotions. Great books make those emotions overflow out of our eyeballs. Though not every great book will make your eyes tear and your heart constrict, these five books will reach into your soul, hold it tight, squeeeeeze, then put it back in your chest.

I've read each of these books through a veil of tears, leaving me with a wet shirt and tissues scattered around me. They've stuck with me for months after reading them. 

I recently asked this question of my Smut Book Club fans: Which of these books tore your heart out, stomped on it, then put it back gently?

Presented in order of number of votes received are five highly emotional romance books I highly recommend.

Angie Lynch is a Native Floridian without a tan, probably because she spends her days hard at work inside on the magical internet. For the past several years, Angie has worked way too hard at building clout as an influencer in food and margaritas as well as being a source for laughable pop culture commentary on her blog, A Whole Lot of Nothing. In addition to that nonsense, Angie recommends books on Smut Book Club, is a contributing writer to Mom.me, spreads the word of Awesome at We Know Awesome, and tries to be a very professional content creator for local business blogs. Stalk her properly on Twitter @alotofnothing and on Facebook.
