Blog Tour Review- Heartbreaker by Melody Grace


"A must read second chance love story!"
- Claire Contreras, NYT Bestselling Author

Title: Heartbreaker
Author: Melody Grace
Publication Date: March 28th 2016 by Melody Grace Books
Plot: The new stand-alone HEA from New York Times bestselling author, Melody Grace!

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's a billboard plastered with his gorgeous face: Finn McKay. Now he’s a drop-dead sexy rock star, but when I first 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.

 My Review 

Finn McKay was the love of Eva's life until he left her high and dry with no contact or explanation whatsoever.

Now five years later, and still mending a broken heart, Finn~~ a now famous up and coming country rockstar, returns to Oak Harbor in hopes of winning Eva again and fixing what he broke between them.

Eva, however, is not so easily swayed by Finn's reappearance and is hesitant and reluctant to reembark anything to do with him after he destroyed her.

Can Finn ever win Eva's trust again? And is Eva even that same girl that she once was?

Heartbreaker was a pretty tame and easy read. Not much is happening, but I appreciated that sense of normalcy in the book. No over the top dramas to want to mush your brain over.

I liked that it primarily focused on the romance of Finn ad Eva, and the minor happenings of Eva's sister Lottie, her bestie and co-worker Delilah, and Eva's volunteer work at an animal shelter.

It was super simple and easy to get into without external outside influences causing a damper upon everything.

I LOVED Finn but I got more of a sense of depth and respect for Eva. I'm not saying that Finn didn't go through hard and rough times, because I know that he had a past and went through his breaking points while trying to make it big in the music world.

But for Eva, I truly felt for her and her helplessness after losing Finn and the tailspin that ensued for her right after. It was a deafening process for anyone in that situation. How can you function normally after the person you thought was your world, and you theirs, ups and leaves right before you actually begin your life? Eva did possess a loving family support, but, Finn was the one she wanted to spend her hopes and dreams with and he abandoned her. I cannot begin to imagine.

Her plight and struggles, was a beast of its own. Combined with, the unknown demons that Finn has withheld about himself was definitely a wake up call. For her and him both.

A lovely, slow simmering romance of second chances, devastating loss, broken dreams, overcoming your pasts, and picking yourself up and looking toward the future for the best.

Cute and sexy read!!

My Rating:

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?
