Get high.

Sounds like the perfect day to Aidan Callahan. As second-born son to Chicago’s most influential business owner, Aidan’s life has always been about responsibility. Tradition. Toeing the goddamn line. Just do as you’re told, Aidan. Don’t make waves.

Well, screw that. Riding waves is way more fun than making them.

Hawaii is paradise on earth. Smoking hot women. Tiny bikinis. As far as Aidan’s concerned, wild horses couldn’t drag him kicking and screaming back to the windy city. Or at least that’s what he thought.

When his brother crashes his Mercedes, killing himself on impact, Aidan finds himself next in line to the Callahan fortune and all the ties that come with it. And this time there’s no getting out of it.


A warm bed.

A steady job.

A brother who loves her.

For Essie Gray, life’s been one hard kick in the teeth after another. With her parents both dead, her brother is her only living relative. That is until Vaughn’s truck is written off, his life snatched away by the careless actions of a rich playboy in a flashy sports car.

Now, the only thing that will bring Essie peace is revenge. She must take what was taken from her. Only when the name Callahan has been wiped from the face of the earth forever will she be able to start living again.

Of course, the new head of the Callahan Corporation isn’t what she expected. Aidan’s sexy and sad, and just as damaged as she is. Will she be able to distance herself enough to accomplish her goal?

After all, ruining a man’s really hard when you find yourself falling for him…

My Review: 

Heartbreaker (Heartbreaker #1)Heartbreaker by Cole Saint Jaimes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Heartbreaker by Cole Saint Jaimes is a debut novel AND the first in the Heartbreaker series. Told in dual POV between Aidan Callahan and Essie Gray we get to know these two characters. This is well-paced, well-written, and **be warned** does have a cliffhanger ending that will leave you eagerly (and impatiently) awaiting the next part of Essie and Aidan's story.

Essie and her brother Vaughn have had a rough life. Lost their parents young, lived in shelters, barely make enough to scrape by, but things started looking up. They had their own apartment, furniture, jobs. Nothing was brand new but it was new to them and they had a place they could call home.

Aidan and his family always seemed to be at odds. Him with their expectations of him and they with their disappointment that he wouldn't acquiesce and join the family business. Aidan was enjoying surfing in Hawaii and was making enough to get by teaching tourists on the beach how to surf. He had no desire to enter the corporate world and no need for his family's money.

One fateful night changes everything in an instant for both Aidan and Essie.

Essie begins to harbor a misplaced hatred for Aidan and what his brother took from her while Aidan laments the loss of his freedom and resents the new corporate wardrobe that has become his existence. It doesn't matter that he is good at what he does, it's not truly what he wants to do.

Essie puts a plan for revenge in motion that takes years to come to fruition but when the end goal is in sight the rules change abruptly and she is left to decide if this is still worth it or if she should let the hatred go.

An amazingly powerful read. The emotions and reasoning of the characters is perfection and Aidan's outlook on women and body shapes is refreshing and welcome. Definitely want more. Like now, please!
