Author: Cole Saint Jaimes
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 18, 2015
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…
What happens when all you have is taken from you in a blink of an eye and there is one person who can be held responsible for all your pain? What happens when that one person makes you feel things you shouldn't; makes you do things you shouldn't? These are the questions that Cole St. Jaimes makes us ask ourselves as we follow along reading the words of his debut novel
Personally, I love to read debut authors. They tend to have a raw often earnest feel while reading and Heart Breaker is no different. Well maybe if you count the sexy surfer business man who is beguiled by the equally strong independent woman who embraces her sexuality, then yes, Cole St Jaimes is a bit different. I loved the way the words just flowed so that I could picture each setting and even feel the weather that was described. Don't even get me started talking about Aidan Callahan and his thoughts. Let's just say he's sure to become your next BBF...
~~》"I’m not into this if you're not into it one hundred percent, too. I can make you feel so good. I can light your body on fire and turn you inside out, but only if you want me to." Aidan Callahan 《~~
I love those lines! But I also have a massive girl crush on Essie Floyd. Her strength and determination can be inspiring and that's a heady battle to win in my eyes.
So yes, I'm saying to go ahead and do yourself a favor and read Heart Breaker! And don't forget to keep your eye on the next book from Cole St. Jaimes, I have that good feeling that he's going to be around for a long time giving us the feels like we like. 4.5 ☆
