A Review of The Heartbreaker by Lili Valente Tristan and Zoey - 5+++++ Stars I have been waiting (as patiently as possible) for Tristan and Zoey to share their story and I am sooo happy it is finally here. Ms. Valente definitely knows how to pack a lot into her stories and keep you fully engaged in what is unfolding before our eyes. There is just something about those Hunter men and the women that bring them to their knees. I also love that we get to see the same characters from the last two books in this story and the continuity this provides the loyal reader. I think I learned more about sea cucumbers than I ever wanted to know, which you will understand when you read the book. It was hilarious! Definitely one of those that I will keep to re-read multiple times. Favorite quote: "Even if it fades or falters, love is always worth the risk." **Honest review voluntarily provided from a Complimentary Copy**

*4.5 stars* I can’t get enough of the Hunter Brothers! Sweet, sexy, sensitive and loves animals! Tristan is the bomb and Zoey knows it! They’ve been co-workers for years but circumstances have them suddenly faking their way out of the friend zone. It is everything Zoey could have hoped for but Tristan... Well, he’s a little slower off the mark. He has his reasons but once they both realize their good friend and co-worker is also hot, that door can’t be closed… “Chemistry is like toothpaste – one it’s out of the tube, it’s not going back in.” Whew… The sparks that (finally) flew for Zoey and Tristan were off the charts! It took some persuading, and some ‘practice’ sessions but it didn’t take them both long to figure out they had something special. I loved how much they liked and respected each other before anything started between them. Not that Zoey would have minded that time be a lot shorter! I don’t blame her, Tristan is all that and more! Throwing in animals with attitude and exes with suspicious motives, this was another delicious addition the series! Oh, and the best character name, like, ever? Moodonna! Bahahahahaha….. *4.5 Double Eggplant Stars*

The Heartbreaker is Lili Valente's newest standalone in the Hunter Brothers series and my favorite of the series! Yes, it's part of the series, but you can read it by itself and not miss a thing! I know it's tough to pick favorites, but Tristan called to my heart in book one. He was bruised and heartbroken and needed some hugs! He was also missing what was right in front of him. Zoey. She is his closest friend, his trusted employee. He thinks she's great, sweet, beautiful. But he never sees her as anything other than a friend. Until they have to pretend to be engaged for their exes. Then one kiss turns Tristan's world upside down. In the best, sexiest way possible! Zoey has been in love with Tristan for years and she never thought anything would come of it. She's been holding herself back from finding love because of her feelings for Tristan. But after that fake kiss that felt very, very real, she's not sure what to think. Tristan is sweet and funny and he genuinely cares about Zoey. But can it be more than friends? After some hilarious happenings, Zoey ends up closer to Tristan than she ever thought possible. What happens when faking it becomes real? When pretending makes them want to try? When a few kisses ignite a passion that's been brewing for years? Can they go from friends to lovers to something more? I LOVED this story! I knew Tristan and Zoey had something simmering between them and I loved the slow burn. The first kiss is perfection. Their banter is witty and hilarious. Their chemistry off the charts. Lili Valente knows how to write romance! The Heartbreaker is sexy, sweet, romantic, whimsical and my favorite of the series!

I enjoyed this story. I had my doubts in the beginning because the characters were rather dull. Then mid way through it got better. The first two books in this series were great. Good read.

4.5 stars!! Although I didn't connect with this one as much as the first two - this series is still awesome and I love the Hunter men. And to be honest - Tristan as an animal lover - definitely okay in my book!! Zoey is adorable in her crushing on the elusive Tristan Hunter. And the nefarious pining of his ex is one for the books! This story definitely takes some turns thanks to both their exes! As always - Lili's witty descriptors are evident..."...addictively amazing. Euphorically magnificent. Blissfully mind-blowing and utterly and completely perfect..." And once again - the Epilogue is my favorite part of the book. You will adore Luke and I'm hoping a Deacon book is in our near future.

The Heartbreaker by Lili Valente is the third standalone romance in her latest smoking hot series, The Hunter Brothers . The story of the youngest Hunter brother, Tristan, and the woman that helps him run the shelter, Zoey. Tristan had his heart ripped out of his chest when the woman he had been with since high school decided he wasn't enough for her and disappeared to Australia leaving him heartbroken and lonely and picking up the pieces. It's taken a quite a few months but he is almost back to center again. It helps that his job keeps him busy and that he has such a great support system there with Zoey helping him run things. Zoey has been head over heels for Tristan for as long as she has known him. Liking him never affected their working relationship but now that he is single she could stand a chance at catching his eye - if only he wasn't still hung up on his ex. When they are out celebrating his brothers wedding they run into not only his ex, but hers too. And lo and behold, their exes are together! Queue fake engagement between Tristan and Zoey to stave off the weird vibe from Kim and Bear and you have another stellar romance novel by one of my most favorite authors. Pet humor, awkward situations, angst without too much angst, hot sex, anticipation - all of it! Enjoy!

The Heartbreaker is the third installment of The Hunter Brothers series. Poor Tristan, the sensitive and sweet Hunter brother is left heartbroken when he was left behind by the love of his life. Sixteen months he's been brooding, and when he finally starts to see the light at the end of the tunnel, his ex decides to reappear in town. Soon Tristan finds out that the women he thought he knew was anything but. Zoey has been in love with Tristan from the very first moment she laid eyes on him. Then, Tristan was unavailable, in love and engaged. Even after his breakup, Zoey knew he would never look at her than more than a friend, a colleague. So when his ex Kim, Zoey's arch nemesis comes strolling into the bar with her ex, what a surprise for both Tristan and Zoey to find out that both of their exes are dating. What an even bigger surprise is Tristan telling Kim that he and Zoey are engaged and very much in love. How far are Zoey and Tristan willing to take this fake engagement to convince their exes that they are truly in love? As Tristan and Zoey spend more time playing it up for their exes, the more they find that the feelings they are displaying is really REAL. Tristan thought that what he had with Kim was love, but spending time with Zoey he realizes that what he feels for her is REAL and she has been under his nose the whole time. Will Tristan and Zoey reveal their true feelings to each other? I love Tristan and Zoey. There is nothing better than two people who start off as friends to then discover that what they have is so much more. I was thrilled that Tristan and Zoey were pushed into this fake engagement because in the end they found TRUE LOVE! Well done Lili Valente. The Heartbreaker is the perfect addition to this series.

Right off the bat I loved Zoey and Tristan because of their love animals and they work at an animal shelter. This book had exactly what I look forward to in a book by Lili Valente. It had heart, humor, and heat. I loved how much Tristan's dog loves Zoey. It's so adorable. Zoey and Tristan fake a relationship because their exes are back in town. What starts off as fake sure soon feels all too real. I loved Zoey and Tristan together. One of my favorite couples. I'm a sucker for a good friends to lovers story. Once I started reading this book I had a hard time putting down to get things done. I just wanted to gobble this story up. This is definitely a book you're sad to see end. I thought the epilogue was too adorable and perfect touch for this book.

Though it has only been a short time since I read book two in Lili Valente’s Hunter Brothers series, I really missed how fun and charming they are. But it took merely a moment after beginning to read The Heartbreaker to be completely immersed back into their world. Tristan and Zoey have always shared a deep connection ever since they started working together. However, in his eyes it was merely based on friendship. Zoey on the other hand has been in love with Tristan from the moment they met. When their ex’s unexpectedly return to town, Tristan and Zoey agree to put on a display of affection pretending to be madly in love just to prove that their hearts are no longer broken. Because that’s what friends are for, right? And it all starts with one hot and steamy kiss. But from the moment their lips meet, the passion begins to swirl inside of Tristan making him realize there is so much more to their connection than merely friendship. As their charade grows, so does Tristan and Zoey’s love making their worlds begin to flip from merely friendship too much, much more. I love the way Lili Valente’s stories seem to effortlessly unfold on the pages before me. They always have a way of completely capturing my attention leaving her characters flitting through my mind not only while I’m in the middle of their story, but even after I’ve finished the book. Ms. Valente has a magical way of capturing love and romance like a genie in a bottle releasing it to her readers in a way that captivates their souls. Although The Heartbreaker is part of a series, it can definitely be read as a standalone, but once you get a taste of one Hunter brother, you’ll definitely want to go back and meet them all. Each story is replete with such smart and comical bantering as well as hot and steamy moments of passion, I’m confident that they will draw you in very quickly just as they did me which make me fall in love all over again.

Oh be still my thumping heart, I knew Tristan was going to steal it from me. I love the Hunter Brothers series by Lili Valente, but Tristan and this book, is my favorite so far. Lili you seem to outdo yourself each and every time and I don’t know how you do it but I am so glad you do. The Heartbreaker is such a romantic, sweet, sexy, delicious and yes even humorous friends to lovers story. Tristan has had his own heart torn to pieces and the only thing that gets him through day to day is working with his best friend Zoey doing the work that they both are so passionate about. Zoey works for him so he has never thought of her as anything more than a friend but he’s been blind. Never seeing that the one who would be so perfect for him has been right there all this time. Zoey on the other hand has been secretly in love with Tristan all this time, but he is her best friend and her boss and it didn’t seem like he felt that way too. Then one fateful day changes everything when they decide to pretend to be engaged when their exes turn up together as a couple. One kiss, that’s all it took to ignite the sparks that had always been there. They have chemistry that could ignite a fire! They are so good together, in and out of the bedroom. They are adorable as a couple. They are sexy, witty and so passionate, and so it goes that their fake relationship becomes anything but and I just love the way the story goes. It’s fantastic! The last chapter was absolutely amazing and the epilogue is probably my favorite part of this book. It’s an epilogue like no other and I just could not stop smiling. You will have to read it to see why. 5 Happily Broken Hearts!!

This story was like a dark chocolate covered strawberry. It was rich and decadent and when you really got right into it, sweet and juicy. Tristan has had his eye on Zoey for years but as her boss (and friend) he would never want to make her uncomfortable or put her in an awkward position. So why does he pretend that they're engaged and make out with her at his brother's wedding...? Because she needs his help and he's nothing if not helpful. Maybe this time he went a little too far but she certainly reciprocated the kiss and seemed to go along with his crazy plan. Now they just need to keep up the pretense until both of their exs are out of the picture. Simple. But somewhere along the line they stop playing pretend and realize that they may have just stumbled into a perfect relationship. I absolutely adored these two as a couple and their interactions were both funny and heartwarming. I would highly recommend this book for those who like to laugh while falling in love:)
