Cole Saint Jaimes - Heartbreaker (Heartbreaker #1)




Get high.

Sounds like the perfect day to Aidan Callahan. As second-born son to Chicago’s most influential business owner, Aidan’s life has always been about responsibility. Tradition. Toeing the goddamn line. Just do as you’re told, Aidan. Don’t make waves.

Well, screw that. Riding waves is way more fun than making them.

Hawaii is paradise on earth. Smoking hot women. Tiny bikinis. As far as Aidan’s concerned, wild horses couldn’t drag him kicking and screaming back to the windy city. Or at least that’s what he thought.

When his brother crashes his Mercedes, killing himself on impact, Aidan finds himself next in line to the Callahan fortune and all the ties that come with it.

And this time there’s no getting out of it.


A warm bed.

A steady job.

A brother who loves her.

For Essie Gray, life’s been one hard kick in the teeth after another. With her parents both dead, her brother is her only living relative. That is until Vaughn’s truck is written off, his life snatched away by the careless actions of a rich playboy in a flashy sports car.

Now, the only thing that will bring Essie peace is revenge. She must take what was taken from her. Only when the name Callahan has been wiped from the face of the earth forever will she be able to start living again.

Of course, the new head of the Callahan Corporation isn’t what she expected. Aidan’s sexy and sad, and just as damaged as she is. Will she be able to distance herself enough to accomplish her goal?

After all, ruining a man’s really hard when you find yourself falling for him…

4 Stars

Let me start by saying I have never before heard of this author, or read anything by him before. But when the author gave me the chance to read an ARC of the book I took the chance. The synopsis sounded interesting enough and I wanted to see if a guy could write a convincing romance novel.

He can certainly write a very "engaging" sex scene.....whew! HOT! But romance, we didn't get so much of that. And I'm just going to say that is because we were getting a lot of story set up that needed to be told so we would know how we got to where we are. The story is strong, believable, definitely HOT, and I really like Aidan's character. I became so tied into the story that I was bummed when I turned the page to a cliffhanger! But kudos to the author on his first attempt at contemporary romance, can't wait to read the next book in this series!!
