You fell in love with Harper Young as Megan Sullivan's fiercely loyal, feisty best-friend in Breaking Love. As a talented art director at Style Magazine in Manhattan, she lives a life of glamour, managing to put a safe distance between herself and her painful past. One spring day, she answers a call that will change everything. Her father has had an accident and needs Harper to go home to Boulder, Colorado to care for him. Given an ultimatum by her boss, she chooses family, leaving her career behind. She drives across the country to find that the only man to make her heart ache with desire will be her new neighbour. Now, living in a city with a past that haunts her, she finds herself falling for Evan Donovan, a hot-as-hell contractor and her big brother's best friend.
When Evan Donovan isn't on a construction site, he is usually hanging from a cliff somewhere. He's been dealt a rough hand when it comes to love and now believes in keeping things simple. His wife left him just as the recession forced him to shut down his home building company. Now after three years of strict perseverance, he is finally back on top again and he intends to stay there. But when Harper Young drops into his life, things are going to suddenly get complicated. He finds himself wondering why he never noticed her when they were teenagers. He resolves to stay away from his best friend's little sister but the pull he feels to her is just too strong. Harper and Evan quickly find themselves in each other's arms, trying to fool themselves into believing that they won't fall in love.
Will Harper's glamorous life come calling before she can overcome the humiliation of being in a town where everyone knows about her past? Will Evan overcome his inability to trust? The clock is ticking as these two perfect-for-each other people decide if they can make that final leap.
Lose yourself in Harper and Evan's romantic journey as they fight for their forever.
The Full Hearts Series has more than one possible reading combination for your enjoyment.
Each book can be read as a stand-alone (i.e. NO cliff-hangers) but each book also has at least one character linked to another book in the series.
I love when I come across that book or author that I haven’t read or heard of before and then become sucked in by a graphic or a couple of quotes from the book, only to not be disappointed by the story and come to be pleasantly surprised. For me Breaking Clear book 3 in the stand alone Full Hearts series, was the best one. They say you always get better with time and Breaking Clear is a testament to that saying.
This third book is Evan and Harper’s story. Neighbors for most of their lives Evan still resides in Boulder, Colorado where he is reestablishing his construction company when Harper is brought back to town from her fast paced fashion world in New York to help care for her injured father. I loved the dynamic between these two. They are both so perfect for each other but they are both too head strong to let it happen. Evan and Harper set limits to their hearts only to be at a loss when life won’t go the way they want it to.
Breaking Clear has a steady pace that won’t leave you hanging in the balance as you fall in love with the sweet sexiness of Evan and see Harper break through her own boundaries to finally let someone into her heart.
MJ Summers currently resides in Canada, not far from the Rocky Mountains, with her husband, three young children and their goofy dog. When she's not writing erotic novels she loves running, reading, going for long dinners with her girlfriends, swimming, and camping with her family.
