A STARLET REVIEW: HEARTBREAKER BY MELODY GRACE

A STARLET REVIEW: HEARTBREAKER BY MELODY GRACE

 

heartbreaker final 2-29

“A must read second chance love story!”

- Claire Contreras, NYT Bestselling Author

 

Synopsis:

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.

Excerpt:

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?

 

My Review

I have read every single Melody Grace book that’s been published and honestly she never lets me down!  I’m a huge sucker for second chance romances and this one was simply perfection!  I loved every minute beginning to end!

From the moment we meet Eva you just know that this girl has suffered some true heartbreak.  She’s been broken by a man, one who promised to love her and be there for her “always”, but then he left!  Eva tried to move on she went to college, moved away, and the heartbreak followed her… Let’s just say the things she did, well, they were a little less then scrupulous.  But when her family need her most, Eva straightened herself out and turned back to her roots.

Finn left the sleepy little town with one goal in mind, become something other then the useless young man his father condemned him to be.  Running from the only person that ever truly loved him, Finn determined that he would make something of himself, and one day go back for the girl.  But sometimes things aren’t always as easy as they seem to be.  Finn hurt her immensely, and proving that he isn’t going to just turn tail and run again won’t be easy, she’s jaded and she has another man interested in her.

Eva and Finn are just truly perfect together.  I really loved their push and pull, his determination and her lack of trust in him.  After all he did leave her high and dry years ago, so why should she!  I loved that she didn’t just fall into his arms and forgive him at first glance, cause let’s face it life doesn’t truly work that way.  I loved Eva’s sister and honestly I would LOVE to see a book where she gets her HEA, she truly deserves it… Maybe even in the form of a local hottie Vet that just moved into town!  EEEPPP… He is totally swoon worthy!  But alas back to Eva and Finn… You can’t find a sweeter or more passionate couple these two have chemistry in spades, enough that you feel it ooze off the pages and into your heart!  If you love second chance romances, don’t miss out on this book, I guarantee you’ll love it!!!!
