Release Day Blitz : Heart Breaker by Erin McCarthy

Title: Heart Breaker
Series: Nashville Nights #1
Author: Erin McCarthy
Publisher: Loveswept
Genre: Contemporary Western Romance
Release Date: May 17, 2016


They’re perfectly in tune—but only when it comes to their music. This sizzling romance from New York Times bestselling author Erin McCarthy follows Nashville’s hottest country music duo as they fight for love in a city where dreams often cost a broken heart. 

Self-made singer/songwriter Jolene Hart loves everything about being on top in Nashville. Well, everything except her very public breakup with Chance Rivers, her sexy masculine other half. Once the hottest duo on the scene, they turned Music City on its ear. Now their careers are as cold as their relationship. Which is why their manager has practically locked them in a remote cabin with nothing but a guitar, a bed, and time to do what they do best: make some beautiful music together. 

As Nashville royalty, Chance has big boots to fill—and the pressure that comes with ’em. He fell hard for Jolene, but he couldn’t handle the spotlight, the crowds, and the fights that made headlines and killed any notion that love and success could go hand-in-hand. Still, Chance is more than willing to rekindle the one thing that worked: the wild passion behind their hit songs. Soon they’re making up for lost time, in the steamiest ways possible. But Chance finds himself wishing for the impossible: that their intimate hideaway could last forever.

I loved Erin McCarthy’s storytelling ,  I have been a fan of hers for a long time.  

This is a story of second chance love and with that you know right away you’re going to have all those emotions and past hurts to get through before the second chance can truly begin. 

Jolene Hart , I loved this character and I am going to tell you why. She has not had the privilege many take for granted. There were many nights her family went to bed hungry. She grew up not taking anything for granted.  Singing was her way out of that. And she ended up becoming a Duet with Chance Rivers. Only it was so much more until it wasn’t. 

She could have let the fame and  fortune go to her head but she didn’t. She is respectful of the business because without it she wouldn’t be where she is today. She is gracious to her fans and the media to a fault sometimes. 

Chance is more on the cautious side of things.  He grew up with a famous dad and he knows how the media can get all up in your business so he doesn’t want that for himself.

I really wasn’t a fan of his at the beginning of the book. I thought he was a horse’s patoot. But as you get to know him you understand where he was coming from.  I like that he didn’t hold back the second time. He was letting it all hang out and letting the chips fall where they may.  He is very head strong and doesn’t back down. I also want to say a little grumpy. 

“I’m trying to push you into the pound, but apparently arrogance is heavier than anger.  Can’t get your stubborn --- to move.”

- That quote says it all…

Watching these two find each other again is not only sweet and hopeful , it’s funny and witty. Sure they had to go through some hurt to get there , but it made it worth it in the end. It made them stronger for it. Communication is key and without it that’s when all the drama happens. This book was a learning process and a wild ride of ups and downs , fun and laughter. 

I leave you with this final quote. 

“There’s just something about us , you know. We’re explosive together.”
