“A must read second chance love story!”
– Claire Contreras, NYT Bestselling Author
They say that time heals a broken heart, but you try moving on when your ex is the most famous man on the planet.
Every time I walk down the street, there he is on magazine covers and billboards plastered with his gorgeous face: Finn McKay. Now he’s a drop-dead sexy rock star, but when I knew him, he was just the boy from the wrong side of the tracks – and the first guy I ever loved. He broke my heart into a hundred pieces when he skipped town without saying goodbye – but now he’s back.
And he wants me.
I’m determined not to make the same mistakes twice, but the chemistry with Finn was always way too hot to ignore. He was the guy who had me sneaking out my bedroom window for just one more kiss, and breaking curfew parked by the riverbanks, steaming up his windows in the backseat of his car. The past five years have been good to him, real good, and between his dirty mind and that ‘I know how to make you scream’ smile, he’s breaking through my defenses all over again.
Maybe one last wild fling for old time’s sake is what I need to finally move on. But what happens when Finn wants more than my body? This time he wants everything.
I received an ARC of this book from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s release day promotions.
I am a sucker for second chance romances. Sometimes, the author doesn’t even matter to me. As long as the main characters have a history, an unfinished business, a second shot at a happy ending, I’m there. That’s why it’s no surprise that I jumped at the chance to read and review this book. For one, it’s my favorite trope. Secondly, I’ve read several books from this author before, and I have always enjoyed her stories.
Heartbreaker is a solid second chance love story. We have a hero and a heroine who were secretly involved years ago. They were tight, in love, and young. Then, the hero ups and leaves and doesn’t come back. The heroine was forced to move on, not knowing exactly why the hero left. And since their relationship was something only the two of them knew about, she didn’t really have anyone to talk to.
Fast forward about four years, the hero is now back in town. And he wants to get back with the heroine. Of course, they both have things and issues to resolve, the biggest of those was the reason why the hero left. All in all, this story was actually pretty simple. There wasn’t much angst. There wasn’t much conflict. It was a bit predictable, and I personally would have liked to have some tragic event happening to shake things up, whether in the past or at the present. Still, even with its simplicity and predictability, I still quite enjoyed this book, so I don’t think I have much to say against it.
