Ten years ago, Jarrett Brandt left home and abandoned everyone of importance. After a hard reality check, the irresponsible young man matured into a ballsy DEA agent with a kickass Harley Davidson and a million-dollar bounty on his head. Ordered by his superior officer to take refuge at a safe house just days before Christmas, he headed back home to Washington State, instead, to make peace with his deceased brother's memory.
Marissa Reinn Brandt never expected to see Jarrett again. Best friends since childhood and lovers as teenagers, immaturity, over-demanding parents and illicit drugs ripped them apart. Now a successful chef at a posh restaurant, the young widow and her son offered Jarrett a place to stay for the holiday. Even though she expected nothing from her former lover--the twin brother of the man she married--fate intervened.
As Jarrett and Marissa rekindled the flames of love and lust that once bound them together, an enemy from his past and a trusted mentor from his present vied their time in the snowy dark and threatened to destroy everyone he held dear. He needed a Christmas miracle to save his family and the love of a good woman to heal his battered heart. Nothing, no one, would stand in the way of his second chance with Marissa. Come hell or high water, he would cherish her body and her heart for all time.
Warning: a hero with a dirty mouth and a drug-filled past, lots of hot sex with a sexy redheaded chef, and an adorable little boy to remind all of us about the meaning of Christmas...

This is a great, sexy novella set at Christmas in snowy Washington State. Jarrett returns home to make peace with his dead brother's memory and winds up reconnecting with his ex-girlfriend, Marissa, who ended up marrying his twin brother and having a son with him. That surprised Jarrett to no ends. He also reconnects with his angry father and timid mother. He left home due to a drug addiction and to escape his overbearing, judgmental cop father. He comes home ten years later as a DEA agent who's in hiding because he messed with the wrong people while undercover. There’s lots of action, romance, sex and tears. Watching Jarrett grow from a wild teenager to a ballsy but respectable adult was awesome. Marissa was a sweet woman with a temper. No one messed with her. She had a great head on her shoulders, no matter the situation. I loved watching Jarrett reconnect with his family. He never stopped loving Marissa, and she never stopped loving him. They just let problems get in their way and they weren’t strong enough to fight for another when they were teens and in love. As adults, they both knew what they wanted and they went for it. Jarrett kept a lot of secrets from her but it was understandable. He had to keep her, his adorable nephew and his parents safe from the criminals who wanted to kill him. He’s very relatable to most readers but he’s not perfect and he’s made a ton of mistakes, but he wants to do better and do right by his family that he abandoned so long ago. Overall, this is a sexy read with twists and turns, bad guys, good guys, all set at Christmas.

It’s a story about redemption and second chances. If you’re looking for a spicy love story this is the right choice. I really love read and review this book because Jarrett’s story is about redemption after his mistakes, he had the opportunity of improve his life. He was an addict, as he was in jail DEA proposed him a deal for clean his record. Suddenly his life changed and he’s a Special Agent and work as undercover in a Mexican Drug Cartel. Marissa was married with Jarrett’s brother and she tried so hard loving him but she always love his twin. And ten years later her love is stronger ever. She sees his return as a chance of recovering their relationship. He could be a dad for Jason a start together a happy family. But she knows better, he keeps a secret, a heavy weight in his shoulders. I must to say I love both characters, Jarred is a real hero, he made mistakes like everybody but he turned his life in something much better, he keeps clean in spite of he was so close to the drugs for years. When he meets his nephew he loves and supports him, but not like a substitute father. Marissa is a strong woman, she lost almost everything (his aunt, mother and husband) but she was able get over all the bad things becoming in a lovely mother for her son. Jason is a sweet boy, his mind is so vivid and his dialogues were so funny. Really love him The storyline is so interesting; the author keeps the tension through the story. It was so hard put the book down. The cherry of the cake? The sexy BDSM scene between Marissa and Jarrett. I loved to read a sweet mother with a kinky side. If you’re looking for a spicy love story this is the right choice. Check my full review at http://goodbooksandgoodcoffee.wordpress.com/2014/01/03/book-review-a-heros-heart-by-amber-daulton/
