Gabe Banner
Title:  Gabe (Heartbreaker #1)
Author:  Evan Grace
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date:  August 18th 2015 by Limitless Publishing

Plot: Jasmine Nichols is a control freak.

When she graduates from college as valedictorian with a degree in social services, her friend and mentor Jill Swanson offers her a job, but with one condition. She has to take two weeks off and just have fun. Taking the instructions to heart, Jasmine goes to a club called Debauchery and has a sizzling encounter with a sexy stranger.

Ex-pro football player Gabriel Johnson is done playing the field.

Gabe is tired of meaningless relationships, but when he meets a mysterious, beautiful, blue-eyed blonde at Debauchery and the chemistry is undeniable, he knows he’s finally found the one. What he didn’t expect was for her to freak out and run off. 

Jasmine thought she made a clean getaway, so needless to say, she’s shocked when she finds herself face to face with the hot guy from the club once again. 

He’s Jill’s. Half. Brother.

Gabe wants to pick up right where they left off and doesn’t waste any time convincing her. Jasmine’s blown away by the intensity of their relationship. How can she control something that makes her feel so wild and uninhibited?

But Jasmine can’t handle the pressure.

First, she’s confronted with old insecurities. Then suddenly, her brother has a secret he’ll only share with Gabe, the father who abandoned her shows up—at Gabe’s instigation—and a professional tragedy is the last straw. 

What happens when it all falls apart?
Is being with Gabe more than she can handle?

In general, I liked this read. I’m a huge sports romance fan and been binging on this reads lately, so imagine my excitement when I got my ARC for this story! *squeeeeeeee!!!~*

Yes, there are some inconsistencies in the writing, plot, and characters, but as a whole it was a sweet and steamy first installment of the Heartbreaker series.

For 22-year old recent college graduate Jasmine Nichols, life hasn’t been easy. Growing up without a father and having your mother develop a rare brain condition, has left her and twin brother, Jordan’s lives in tatters.

On the brink of being put into a foster home, in comes future bestie and social worker, Jill Sanders, to the rescue and places Jasmine and her brother in the care of their grandmother.

From then on, Jill is Jasmine’s center, her mentor, and motivation catalyst; and the only one she can truly rely on. Not even her spacey brother.

She follows Jill’s footsteps and earns a degree in social work as well, and decides to pay it back forward if you will. No child should ever have to be put in a bad home situation or be potentially what she was obscured from.

But, when her life is on the straight on narrow, in comes in smexy ex-pro football player who reads heartbreak and trouble, and pursues her mercilessly with no taking of no.

Only catch is, is that he is Jill’s half- brother.

How will this romance end?

All in all, a great story with a lot of potential. I got Jasmine’s fear and insecurities and why she felt initially as if Gabe was going to let her down like many of the men in her life. Thus, her running away from his advances.

As for Gabe, I really enjoyed his characterization. I’m used to playboy types of jocks, and while Gabe is very prime looking, he isn’t looking for a short lived fling. He’s looking to settle down. And now that he’s finally found the one, he isn’t about to let her go. *melts*

Wonderful, start to this series!! Can't wait to see what's in store next!!
