Blog Tour Review- Heartache (Heartache, #1) by Danielle Allen

Title:  Heartache (Heartache, #1)
Author:  Danielle Allen
Date:  January 18th 2015 
Plot: Roman Harper is known for being three things:

A talented artist…
A charismatic loner…
And most notably, an unintentional heartbreaker. 

Even though he doesn’t mean for women to fall in love with him, Roman Harper has left a string of broken hearts in his wake. But after a lie tore his world apart eight years ago, Roman doesn’t let anyone get too close to him. Sex is sex and love is…completely out of the question. 

Using the past as motivation, Roman pours his heart out onto his canvas. His heartache inspires some of his best work. And at twenty-eight years old, his art is finally getting the recognition that he’s always desired. But when Roman wakes up on the morning after his successful event with no recollection of who left the cryptic message on his bathroom mirror, everything changes.

 My Review 

☆ I received an RC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆


Heartache was an all around interesting read that kept me intrigued and on my toes. While the plot synopsis gives you a vague of glimpse of what to expect, actually sitting down and reading it became quite a conundrum, as I constantly kept trying to figure out the evasive and enigmatic Roman Harper and what made him HIM.

Roman is a shroud of mystery and undoubtedly an aloof, closed off, and untouchable type of character who is a professor and an up and coming artist.

He’s not the type of guy you’ll love right off the bat, as he’s a very withdrawn and the type where he prefers no attachment to people (and women) aside from his three besties….HOWEVER, he does grow on you by the end.

His life is a mess and in shambles, but it inspires some of his greatest masterpieces and gains the adoring eye of a disturbing stalker who eerily makes their admiration and obsession for him known throughout the read.

Now he must confront the demons of his past to not only to protect him, but also to protect those he cares about including Bianca.

A predominantly suspenseful read, and sometimes frustrating one at that. Roman’s “issues” at times felt a little drawn out at times and made me feel a mixed reaction of towards him. I didn’t know whether to love him or want to slap some sense into him at times! Haha. Luckily though, Bianca was a strong female who kept him on or kicked him into course, although she too comes from a painful upbringing as well that even more so want to bring Roman off of his PMS moods.

Over all though, a great start to this series!
My Rating:




 Heartfelt Releasing May 21!! 


Months after a secret admirer shook up his life, Roman Harper has found peace with the past that haunted him for eight years. He’s opened his heart to Bianca Baker. He's made a name for himself in the art world. Life is good…

Until an anonymous package with a cryptic message changes everything.

When it happened before, it ripped him apart. This time around, he has so much more to lose.

I love to read and I enjoy sharing my love of books with anyone who will listen. I love music. A good lyric with a good melody can paint a vivid picture and invoke such a range of emotions. I have a soft spot for most mediums of creative, artistic expression.

So in a nutshell: I plan. I teach. I read. I write. I watch. I critique. I shop. I play. I love.

To know me is to love me.
