Fans of “The Bachelorette” shared tears, laughs and “Awws” with couple Chris Siegfried and Desiree Hartsock. From the start of the 2013 series, Chris showered Desiree with romantic poems, and now the engaged couple would like to share them with the world.
Chris has been teasing fans about his poetic memoir, “Diamonds and Hearts,” but now the book is officially here. “Bachelorette” viewers who have a Kindle can purchase an e-book right now through Amazon.com.
According to the retail site, “Diamonds and Hearts” can be purchased as an e-book for $8.95. At an estimated 182 pages, the book on Chris’ “journey to find love” features 44 poems along with a written synopsis by Chris and Desiree. But Chris’ poetry isn’t the only thing readers will find inside -- the book also features Desiree’s original poems that she wrote to Chris while on “The Bachelorette!” And, as the Amazon description explains, Desiree “expresses her feelings for Chris in a way no one has ever seen before.”
Although the book was just released, “Bachelorette” fans are already eating it up. Reviewers on Amazon currently give the book 4.7 out of 5 stars and are calling the poetic memoir “genuine and real.”
