Heartbreak for Hire

After Brinkley’s terrible break-up two years ago, she started working at Heartbreak for Hire, a small, women-only firm in Chicago that pays “Heartbreakers” to get revenge on men who have hurt women. Now the owner of Heartbreak for Hire has brought its first male Heartbreakers into the fold. Even worse, Brinkley’s new male counterpart, Markus Cavanaugh, was her most recent Heartbreak assignment. As much as she wants to hate him, she can’t help but feel the connection between them and enjoy their easy banter. Now she has to train Mark and play nice to a bunch of sleazy Heartbreak assignments, while working on her art and saving money to one day open her own gallery, not to mention dealing with her mother’s disappointment over Brinkley’s choices. Hartl (Have a Little Faith in Me) pens a sweet and sexy contemporary romance that focuses just as much on Brinkley dealing with her past as it does on the love story. This fast-paced novel features the right amount of humor and sass to offset how much Brinkley has been hurt by the actions of her ex and her mother.
VERDICT A first pick for libraries where contemporary romance is popular.
