Synopsis (Goodreads):
Some people wait decades to meet their soul mate. Courtney Kaufman suspects she met hers in high school only to lose him at seventeen. Since then, Courtney's social life has been a series of meaningless encounters, though she's made a few close friends along the way. Especially her roommate Max Cooper, who oozes damaged bad-boy vibes from every pore.

Max knows about feeling lost and trying to move beyond the pain he's been on his own since he was sixteen. Now it's time to find out if he can ever go home again, and Courtney's the only one he trusts to go with him. But the trip to Providence could change everything because the more time he spends with Courtney, the harder it is to reconcile what he wants and what he thinks he deserves.

It started out so simple. One misfit helping another. Now Max will do anything to show Courtney that for every heart that's ever been broken, there's another that can make it complete.
Thoughts on The Shape of My Heart: Courtney and Max slayed me. We got to know Max some in the previous books and he's come across as a player. Seeing the other side of him--the side he doesn't show ANYONE until Courtney comes along--knocked me dead. They guy's a total sweetheart. I just <3 him so hard.

Which isn't to say Courtney's not a sweetheart. She is. I like the girl. I like her a lot. The stuff she put up with from her parents hurt. Her stoic acceptance that she's not pretty kinda got to me. I admired her attitude and her willingness to be there for Max when he needed her. I liked the slow bloom of their romance and how Max wasn't ashamed IN THE LEAST to call her his.

*fluttery sigh*

Yeah, that slow, best friends-to-something-more relationship thing worked for me.

We got to reconnect with former couples, meet some new folks along the way, and watch the entire group grow up. All in all, I'd say that's a solid way to end a series.
