Mason Ritter has a crush.  Unfortunately, it’s on his boyfriend’s sister’s fiancée.  Luckily his boyfriend’s family all live in Mexico and Mason’s time around Anton, the man he is finding himself fantasizing about more and more, is limited.  When Miguel informs him that his sister is throwing a huge fiesta for Cinco de Mayo and he and Mason were going to Puebla to help with party planning, Mason wasn’t sure if he would be able to keep his feelings for Anton or his hands to himself.

Anton Rocha’s life has changed since meeting Pedra. He had no one before her, and now he has a chance of having a family.  So what if she believes she has “cured” him.  He can put the past behind him and live happily with her.  At least he thought he could, until he met Mason.  Mason re-awakens feelings and memories of a life Anton would rather not think about.

From the start of Corazón, I got the impression that the relationship between Mason and Miguel was not one built on passionate love.  They seem tolerant of each other but not in love.  Mason and Anton were definitely embarking on complicated and emotionally distressing territory.  In the beginning of the story, I wasn’t convinced that what they felt for each other was strong enough to have to deal with all of that.  As the story progresses, the chemistry and passion between the two become stronger and more desperate.  It also becomes clear that Miguel and Mason’s relationship is nothing more than the need of companionship.  Corazón fittingly touched my heart mostly because of Anton.  He’s the big, strong silent type who only wants acceptance and love and luckily he finds it with Mason. Corazón is a slow paced story. It took me a while to feel the connection between the two heroes, but once I did I very much enjoyed this story.
