Review: Heart Breaker by Erin McCarthy

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.

Kristine's Thoughts:

** I received an advanced readers copy from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

I'm always a fan of second chance romances so I was positive that I would really enjoy Heart Breaker. The idea of a singer/songwriter duo who's relationship crashed and burned yet were forced back together in order to create a second album really appealed to me. My initial thought was "this is going to be interesting!"

Ugh... I found myself getting annoyed at Jolene and Chance a lot. When I say a lot I mean A LOT. Normally the love/hate relationship creates a chemistry that draws me in and has me routing for them but that was not the case with these two. I found the back and forth both boring and annoying and I was indifferent as to whether they would get together or not. There was a real lack of maturity with the two of them and it went on forever. It kind of reminded me of a Soap Opera. There could only be happiness for a split second before something would come along and spoil it. There was a ton of heat within the pages but without a great story surrounding it I couldn't find the fire.

This book was only 230 pages yet it took me three days to finish it. Normally I can finish a book that size in an afternoon if I'm really liking it. I could only take this book in small portions. I wish I could pin point exactly what was lacking for me but I'm not one hundred percent sure what it was. It just wasn't my cup of tea.
