HIDING WITH THE HEARTBREAKER by Author Virginia Nelson HOW TO UNBREAK A HEART by Author Jennie Marts SECOND CHANCE HERO by Author Michelle Major HOMETOWN HEARTBREAKER by Author Heather Long HERO IN DISGUISE by Author Sharla Lovelace HER HEARTBREAKER BOSS by Author Carmen Falcone HOW TO BE A HEARTBREAKER by Author Codi Gary REFORMING THE HEARTBREAKER by Author Christine Glover HER UNWANTED HERO by Author Veronica Forand ONCE A HEARTBREAKER by Author T.J. Kline MAKE MINE A HEARTBREAKER by Author Jodi Linton TUTORING THE HEARTBREAKER TO LOVE by Author Hayson Manning I received an advanced copy of this book for an honest review. Some of these stories I had to grab a tissue and others I wish I could punch the guy out. lol Lots of emotions coming to the surface in these stories and I loved every one of them.
I loved the concept of this anthology! Twelve men all deeply affected by the man who served as their mentor and taught them the rules they needed to live by but they each manage to break them only to regret it. I am a fan of several of the authors and found some new ones as well. One of my favorite stories was Michelle Major's SECOND CHANCE HERO. Travis Jackson is the all-business, following-in-his-father's-footsteps CEO of a major sporting goods company. Hailey Moore is a down-on-her-luck woman trying to get her feet under her in Minneapolis - a far cry from her Montana roots. When Hailey overhears Travis breaking up with a screeching woman at a coffee shop, she offers Travis a hug, sending him a curve ball that he didn't expect. This is a fast-paced, delightful read full of heart-tugs, sexual tension and chuckles. The characters have the emotional depth Ms. Major's stories always possess as well as her trademark humor. I adored Jennie Mart's HOW TO UNBREAK A HEART. This is a sexy, humorous romance that gives Trip and Bre a second chance to fix old hurts. The other stories are a true delight as well. I highly recommend!
My review is for: 1. Hiding with the Heartbreaker by Virginia Nelson 2. Hometown Heartbreaker by Heather Long Hiding with the Heartbreaker by Virginia Nelson Ms. Nelson never disappoints me as a reader. She creates worlds, heroes, and heroines who are your every day authentic people who get into and out of some relatable and sexy situations. Jude and Al are no exceptions in this fast paced short story (70 pages). Jude our heroine is so relatable in her no so common sense decisions and quick (wrong) reactions. Al our hero is not what he seems and has so many layers as many famous people do - showing one face to the world and another personality that's the real truth. Ms. Nelson creates dynamic characters and a relatable, haters to lovers plot that fits these two flawed protagonists. If you have an hour - this is a must read for you. Hometown Heartbreaker by Heather Long I love Ms. Long and her characters. They are always so complex and a treat to read. Zeke and Charity have given me a serious case of book hangover and I wish they had their own full-length story. Heather really packs a punch in a short amount of words and I am super impressed that the story was so developed even with a lot going on. Charity's life didn't turn out as planned and she has made some hard choices that affected everyone. Zeke has lived quite the life but is now returning home to coach the local kids baseball team. He hasn't been home in years and returns to find out that the spark is and has always been there with Charity. Can they get over the past and move forward? Kudos Ms. Long I laughed out loud and cried. I was so moved by this story I will not forget these two in a long time.
Story #3 - "Her Heartbreaker Boss" is by Carmen Falcone, and is the first one I read in this anthology, and if it's an indication of the rest of the stories, then we have a definite winner. The 12 novellas are all connected by a home for boys that all the male characters were in at one point and how it affected their lives; how the man who ran it turned them into men by working the hard and teaching them 12 Rules. This particular story concerns Rule #3: Never leave your woman unsatisfied. It brings the two main characters back together years after a life changing event during their late teen years. Stefano has made it big in the financial world and is buying a company that unbeknownst to him, the teenage girl from his past, Roxie, is working at. Meeting each other again brings back memories they'd rather forget. Top that off with the anger she feels for the changes and layoffs he's planning to make, and it spells trouble. I don't do spoilers so this is it, just let me say here that for a novella the author manages to provide a very strong story that takes us from their past right to the present and how unknown factors and misunderstandings can change a persons life. Will this lead to happiness or more sorrow for these two individuals; to find out you'll have just have to get the anthology and read "Her Heartbreaker Boss." I strongly recommend this book to lovers of Contemporary Romance, especially those that include not only romance, but anger, humor, and of course sexy encounters. You won't be sorry you did. ---------------------------- Story #1 is by author Virginia Nelson and is titled "Hiding with the Heartbreaker" and it concerns Rule #1: Protect the innocent. We have to people who are trying very hard to different from what their parents are, or what they expect them to be. We have Jude, the daughter of a famous painter, who never had the emotional love or attention because her was too involved with her painting. Aloysius (Al) was born into money since he was young wanted nothing to do with and rebelled against it and was sent to a "boys" ranch where he met a man he considered more his father than his own. Jude sees what appears to be a murder and runs away before she can be arrested. Al is told of her innocence and is asked to keep her safe and protect her. You'll enjoy this novella of their time together and what they discover about themselves. Can they really let go of their upbringing and open up to each other and move forward or will it cause them to turn away again. ---------------------------------------- Story #2 "How to Unbreak a Heart" was written by Jennie Marts and concerns Rule #2:If you love her, don't let her go. As teenagers Trip and Bre swore their love to each other and had their life together planned out. Then one night, without explanation, Trip leaves. Twelve years have past and circumstances have unwittingly brought them back together. Unbeknownst to either of them, they still love one another. but her hurt and his secrets are keeping them from admitting it. You'll love this story of the cowboy and the veterinarian, read how secrets let out can heal and how hearts can be healed. ------------------------------ Story#4 "Her Unwanted Hero" by Veronica Forand and concerns Rule #4: A real man always helps someone in need, he may be the only one who does" This is the story of Police Sergeant Griffin and waitress/student/caretaker Trinity. They've been friends for over 12 years, seeing each other on a regular basis

I was very lucky to get the opportunity to read two of the stories included in this collection early and let me just say if the other 1o are this good (and considering the authors involved they should be) this is one amazing collection!! Once a Heartbreaker by TJ Kline - 5 stars - This is a wonderful second chance story and these characters will grip your heart right from the start. Rayne and Ty were teenage sweethearts. Rayne was certain they would spend the rest of their lives together. That is until the day Ty told her he was leaving and didn't love her anymore. Now Ty is back in Saddle Creek and plans to get Rayne back no matter what it takes.

After surviving the humiliation of a teenage prank involving Bash, the last thing she wants is to end up living next door to him. Fate seems to have plans for them that can't be denied! This collection needs to be on everyone's must read list. Preorder your copy now!
Three down, and they are all awesome! REFORMING THE HEARTBREAKER by Christine Glover I was captivated right from the beginning, because the characters are extremely well defined and interesting. Ryder is a mountain bike rider who came from nowhere and made good, and Addison is serious about saving Ryder’s career when he hits a serious snag. And how wonderful it was to see a female character deal realistically with weight issues. REFORMING THE HEARTBREAKER’s story is very solid, and a lot happens even though it is a novella. I really felt the connection between Addison and Ryder, even though they had issues to settle. He had some serious making up to do. Addison is a very strong woman, she has worked hard to get where she is, so did Ryder, and their reunion was not easy. REFORMING THE HEARTBREAKER is absolutely terrific, the writing is superb; once again Christine Glover has given us a fabulous book to enjoy! Excellent! HER HEARTBREAKER BOSS by Carmen Falcone HER HEARTBREAKER BOSS shows a softer, more subdued and more emotional side of Carmen Falcone, and it is fabulous! The great dialogues are still present, the heroine is a strong no-nonsense heroine, Stefano is a terrific hero as well. The writing is seamless, the pace quick, and I really loved how both the romance and the story progressed. There were issues, but they were dealt with speedily and intelligently by the characters. HER HEARTBREAKER BOSS in another great excellent, sensual and fun read by Carmen Falcone! It was so good, I knew it was going to be a novella, but I would have liked to read much more about those two fabulous characters! HOW TO BE A HEARTBREAKER by Codi Gary HOW TO BE A HEARTBREAKER sees Codi Gary in fine form. Although the premise for the start of the story is a rather nasty piece of business from the past, it was not the entire focus for the plot, and it was deftly handled, and with quite a few humorous touches, some courtesy of Ashlynn’s dog, Bernie. Codi Gary writes both bad boys and nice guys with equal ease, and I really liked Bash; he was sweet but definitely not perfect. I also thought that some of the better moments of HOW TO BE A HEARTBREAKER occur between Bash and his estranged father. Those episodes were moving, and very realistic; they explained a lot of Bash’s way of thinking and were as well a golden opportunity for some wonderful character development. HOW TO BE A HEARTBREAKER flows seamlessly, and as usual Ms. Gary’s prose is impeccable, and the dialogues spot-on. I was really pleased with how the romance progressed and how issues were dealt with. HOW TO BE A HEARTBREAKER is why I love Codi Gary: small town romance, with a dash of humour and a touch of sexy! I received complimentary copies of these books in exchange for honest reviews.
