Heartbreaker by Melody Grace Genre: Contemporary Romance Release Date: March 28th

heartbreaker final 2-29

"A must read second chance love story!"

- Claire Contreras, NYT Bestselling Author


They say that time heals a broken heart, but you try moving on when your ex is the most famous man on the planet.

Every time I walk down the street, there he is on magazine covers and billboards plastered with his gorgeous face: Finn McKay. Now he’s a drop-dead sexy rock star, but when I knew him, he was just the boy from the wrong side of the tracks - and the first guy I ever loved. He broke my heart into a hundred pieces when he skipped town without saying goodbye – but now he’s back.

And he wants me.

I’m determined not to make the same mistakes twice, but the chemistry with Finn was always way too hot to ignore. He was the guy who had me sneaking out my bedroom window for just one more kiss, and breaking curfew parked by the riverbanks, steaming up his windows in the backseat of his car. The past five years have been good to him, real good, and between his dirty mind and that ‘I know how to make you scream’ smile, he’s breaking through my defenses all over again.

Maybe one last wild fling for old time’s sake is what I need to finally move on. But what happens when Finn wants more than my body?

This time he wants everything.  


Finn walks me to my front porch. “Listen, Eva, I wanted to say…” He stops there on the dark road, with nothing but the moon to illuminate the shadowed planes of his face. “About what happened, when I left—’ “Don’t.” I cut him off before he can try to justify what he did. My pride is all I’ve got now, and I can’t bear for him to know how thoroughly he broke my heart. “You don’t need to explain. Ancient history,” I add, with a forced little laugh. “It’s all over now. Thanks for walking me, but I’ve got it from here.” I turn to go, but then his hand is on my arm, pulling me back, pressing me hard against a wall of solid muscle. “Is that what you really think?” Finn demands, searching my face, just inches between us. There’s something raw in his voice, something wounded and real. “I…” I stop, caught in the intensity of his gaze. The feel of his body, the hot whisper of his breath on my skin, it’s overwhelming. And oh, those lips, so close… A hundred volts of electricity race through my numb, tired veins, short-circuiting my brain until I can’t think, can’t breathe. I can only feel him. All of him. I fight for air, my blood pounding in my ears. “Finn…” I whisper, pleading, but for what, I don’t know. And then his lips claim mine in an urgent, fevered kiss, and I realize what I’ve been waiting for since the moment he walked through those doors. This. Right here. Finn kisses me hard, yanking me closer and circling me with those taut, chiseled arms. His mouth is hot against mine, merciless and wild. He eases my lips apart, exploring the wet, hot depths as his tongue slides deeper, demanding. I buckle against him, sensation flooding through me. It’s lightning to dry wood, the sharp spark that roars to wildfire in an instant, the heat surging through my entire body. And God, I can’t get enough. My hands are in his hair. My body presses close against him, like I could mold myself to his form. The years melt away, obliterated by the force of our passion, so familiar but still so new. Every touch, every taste feels like a revelation. My Finn. Back again. He makes a low groan, sliding his hands lower, possessive, to cup my ass and bring me hard against him. Time is lost, gone forever as his lips take possession of me completely, and I match him kiss for kiss. Desire rages to life again, so sharp and craving. It’s like I’ve been sleepwalking for the past five years, and only just come back to life. The world bursts from black and white to glorious, vivid technicolor. “Look at me,” he whispers, in a low husky voice that sends molten honey pooling between my thighs. “Look at me, baby.” He tilts my chin up, so I have no choice but to stare into those stormy eyes, the face I’ve imagined so many nights in scenes just like this. He traces my lips with his thumb, and I shudder at the friction. Light-headed, dizzy with desire, I part my lips, ready for another kiss. Finn’s lips curl in a victorious smile. “Ancient history, huh?” he teases, stepping back. I blink, still reeling as cold air rushes to fill the space his warm body has left behind. Wait, what?  

I'm admittedly not a huge fan of second chance romances, but when I read the blurb to Heartbreaker there was no way I couldn't not want to read it. The book was fast paced, sexy, and very interesting. I liked both characters, and even the secondary characters that were mentioned throughout the story.

Finn left home after high school and pursued his music career, making it big and becoming a superstar. But when he left and never looked back, he left behind his high school sweetheart, breaking her heart by not even telling her goodbye. Now, he's back in town and ready to win over the girl he's never stopped thinking about.

Eva had her heart ripped our when Finn left her all those years ago, and she never really recovered. Then he shows up in town again and seems to be everywhere she is, always in her space, and making her remember why she fell in love with him. But can the new man that Finn has turned into steal her heart all over again? 

This was my first book by Melody Grace and I really liked her writing.She told the story in dual POV, but the majority of the book was told in Eva's with only a few chapters from Finn. I really liked how so much of it focused on what Eva was thinking, but during some important parts she threw in Finn's thoughts also.

These characters were wonderful and I loved how we got to see them discover their feelings for each other all over again. They had both changed a lot since high school so when they were finally together again it was like they were finding their hearts for the first time. I thought their story was beautiful, and I'm so glad I read it.
