The problem with heartache is that there’s no one-size-fits-all relief package. You can go to classes; you can try to embrace change. But when you wake up at two in the morning, a smile on your face because you’ve dreamt about thecould have—the should have—nothing will console you.

Because seconds later, you remember.

And remembering can rip you apart.




Kate will do anything for her family. It’s why she took the job with Lee. It’s why she’s attempting to forget her pain. Butit’s hard to forget, when you’re desperate to hold on. Even if Lee Collins is the perfect package.


Lee will do anything for the ones he cares about. It’s why he hired Kate.

It’s why he keeps his secrets; and it’s why he cannot, will not fall in love. Not with Kate—not with anyone.



The one thing he can’t forgive.

The one thing she can’t forget.

I received a copy of this book from Inkslinger PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

The problem with “The Problem With Heartache” is that it’s about heartache. I don’t really want to read sad books because they make me feel sad too. I have to commend the author, though. This book really had a lot of good things going on. I like the fact that both main characters had their own issues.

This book is still about Kate, the heroine from the first book of this series, Crazy In LOve. This book can be read as a standalone, though, because I haven’t read the first two books, but I still greatly enjoyed this one. The third book is about lost love, heartache, and peace. It’s sweet and sad at the same time.

I won’t mention how it ends, so I don’t spoil the book for anybody, but I do have to say that you definitely won’t regret reading it. This book is definitely a cut above the other new adult books that are out there. It’s not only about falling in love. It’s so much more than that. I definitely recommend this book to anyone, especially those who like their romance sweet and heartwarming.
