Heartbreaker by Melody Grace

Beware of Spoilers!

Star Ratings:

Heroine (Eva): 21yrs old – 3/5

Hero (Finn): 24yrs old – 2.5/5

Plot: 3/5

Grovel: none

Cheating: I can forgive the hero for being a manwhore during their separation as the heroine also slept around

HEA: yes but no epilogue

Triggers: miscarriage

Average score: 3/5

Best Lines: “You can never have too many books”

Worst Lines: “Give it up, get it on, and with any luck, you’ll fuck him right out of your system.” – this never works

H to h: “Every girl, every city, it’s always you. I feel you when I push inside them,” he continues roughly. “It’s your voice I hear when they’re begging for more. I’ve fucked you a hundred times over” – and he says this to her as they get it on…


Personal Review:

This was an average second-chance love story between a wannabe actress and a famous musician. It had all the typical themes of the hero being a manwhore and leaving the heroine behind only then to disrupt the heroines life five years later and pursue her. Heroine then believes she can fuck him out of her system but ends up chasing after him.

I have read better second-chance romances but then again I have read worse too. I realise that I love second-chances romances because of the payoff of the hero grovelling and there are only a handful of romances that I have read which have this great payoff. Unfortunately, this is not one of them.

Random Ramblings:

  • Hated that he called for Edith at THAT moment
  • Wish the heroine made him grovel
  • The heroine’s inner dialogue started to get annoying around the 75% mark because it was so repetitive

Overall Feeling:
