Product description

Product Description

Quinn has spent her whole life working in her dad's garage, leaving her more comfortable with a carburetor than a curling iron. Her world is turned upside down when her beloved garage is bought by none other than world famous, sexy as sin, custom car builder, Tazen Watts. He's the one man she can't stand...even though he makes her hotter than a high performance engine in top gear.

Tazen has no use for Quinn, at least not professionally, and he's making sure she knows it. But there's a spark between them that she's finding hard to ignore. She's determined to prove her talent is as impressive as her sassy mouth. When she finds out Tazen is hiding a secret that could bring down his career and everyone involved in it, she wonders: is falling for him is going to be worth the risk?
*This book is a standalone that contains a HEA*

Bella Jewel can be relied upon for a good story & Hard to Break is no exception. Quinn has been running her father's garage with 3 other mechanics but they are behind with the loan payments & Tazen, a famous, seriously hot, custom car builder has his eye on the site. Her Dad sells him the garage & Quinn is devastated. Tazen & Quinn clash & fire builds between them - they are both determined to win & ultimately, they both do!
A good, fun read with some heated exchanges - don't miss out on this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tazen & Quinn 20 October 2015
By Julie H - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS - I did not enjoy these characters, sad to say. I read a preview in the first book & it had so much promise. For me it really fell short. Quinn has always followed in her daddy's footsteps, becoming a mechanic & later taking over his garage Pixie Wheels when her father loses his way. Her father became a terrible alcoholic after the death of Quinn's mother & now besides single-handedly running the garage & trying to keep it afloat, she has to clean up her mess of a father & make sure he is breathing & tuck him in bed every night. No man, no nightlife, no friends for Quinn. And then Tazen takes away the only thing that kept her breathing - her garage. I guess that is the part that I struggle with - Quinn has so much fire & attitude, a girl living in a man's world, Tazen kisses her face off after he's already stripped her of her dreams, and Quinn keeps running back to him for scraps - little jobs at HIS garage, kisses & caresses from Tazen. He doesn't allow her to work outside his office at first, doesn't trust a girl around his precious engines? Yeah I didn't like Tazen at all, no matter how hot he was. In the end Tazen makes it all up to Quinn & they get their HEA but I wanted Quinn to win on her own & beat Tazen at his own game, not join him.

Reviewed For I'm A Sweet And Sassy Book Whore

Hard To Break is the second book in the Alpha’s Hearts series and I liked it just as much as the previous book. I am loving how Ms. Jewel is having the heroines not only be strong but have them in occupations that are unfortunately male dominated but that they are kicking male a$$ in proving that they are just as capable of doing the same job.

Quinn is a mechanic who is running her father’s garage since he is unable to because he is an alcoholic. That garage is her life and she is d@mn good at what she does. When a famous car builder comes in and rocks her world by buying the garage out from under her, her world is shattered and she refuses to let the sexy bastard win. I actually could completely relate to that feeling of this is mine, I have run it, it’s been my hard work that has kept it open for this long. My dad has his own business, my grandparents had originally started it and I worked for my dad from the time I was in high school until I moved away to be with my husband. I always thought I would be taking it over and at the time I was working there when he told me I wouldn’t be it broke my heart. But like Quinn in the long run I know now that I don’t want to take it over when he finally steps down and selling it would be for the best. I loved the banter between her and Tazen, but I especially loved how she didn’t back down from him when he was being an a$$.

Tazen wants Quinn’s garage to open his new shop, but he wasn’t prepared for having to deal with Quinn making his life he!! when he did it. I really wish we could have gotten his POV because I would have loved to know what he was thinking more than once. He needed someone like Quinn just as much as Quinn needed someone like him.

I think my only real complaint about the book is that there is some drama that kind of just is anticlimactic and I wish it would have had a more definite conclusion. Even with that little complaint I really enjoyed Hard To Break. Bella Jewel still remains an author who I know when I pick up one of her books it will be one that I really enjoy.
5.0 out of 5 stars One heck of a ride!!! 14 October 2015

Quinn is a twenty-five year old sassy woman trying to keep her family business, Pixie Wheels, together and care for her dad. She left behind any other dreams she may of had and put all her time into work. Pixie Wheels is her passion. It is her link to her past and the path to her future.
Tazen is a hot shot car builder and he is looking to expand and the problem with this is he wants Pixie Wheels. He wasn't expecting the road block known as Quinn. He won't take no for an answer no matter what he has to do.
Quinn had always respected Tazen's work but now he is the enemy. She wants to hate him but there is this spark between them she can't ignore, no matter how hard she tries. Tazen will get what he wants. His business drives him but he's just as arrogant in his personal life. He has had plenty of women but none have been like Quinn. She is just real. He is drawn to her. Is the business all he wants now?
Hard to Break is a fast paced, hilarious, intense, and sexy read. It is heartfelt and made me feel compassion for a no win situation. Couldn't stop reading. Quinn is one of the best heroine characters I have read about. She is determined, tenacious, fiery, feisty and I have a serious girl crush. She is not only surviving in a mans world but she is rewriting the rules. Then there is Tazen, a hot alpha sexy as sin male with a panty melting smile. Bring the two together and you have combustible chemistry too hot for the pages. Loved this read. Recommend it to everyone. Bella Jewel never lets us down with her tremendous talent. Great job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love and Machines 10 November 2015

ARC provided via Netgalley in exchange for review

Tazen Watts is a custom car builder who turns Quinn’s life upside down when he shows up at her garage to buy it out. Quinn has taken over her father’s garage because her father is drowning in alcohol and can’t handle it. Quinn has been working with cars her whole life and the garage is important to her but Tazen doesn’t care and does what he wants.

I wasn’t sure about Tazen at first. He came across as a heartless a******e; he buys the garage out from under her and treats her like a child. I was frustrated with the fact that although she had a team of mechanics, and ran the place, Tazen acted like she was pretending to be a mechanic. Quinn refuses to give up and demands a job but in doing so she has to prove herself to Tazen. I seriously disliked this part. It was very obvious that Quinn was good at what she did, I was unhappy with the fact that the story had to go in the “girl trying to prove herself in a man’s world” route.

Quinn had her moments of acting like a silly girl around Tazen (as a lot of Ms. Jewel’s heroines do) but for the most part I liked her. I warmed up to Tazen a little and he came through in bringing Quinn into the fold. I liked the progression their romance took. They are hot for each other but they also start to open up and learn about each other. Bella Jewel tends to rush her stories but in this case I thought she did well with the pacing. Quinn was pretty funny and I liked the scene where she had a little Q&A with Tazen.

I felt the situation with Sheyenne fizzled out; I was expecting something big to happen with her and didn’t go anywhere. All in all I did enjoy Hard to Break and I definitely liked it more than Hard to Fight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tazen and Quinn are funny, witty 15 October 2015
By Wendy Estrada - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
How can I explain Bella Jewels books with out giving away anything on the story but being able share the beauty of it? Well that there is my problem because truthfully I just want to share the whole story.

Tazen  and Quinn are funny, witty, constantly fighting but have the  most amazing connection through the love of cars.

Quinn is a mechanic born and raised. Her dad was a very Har working mechanic the best one in the town they live in. However his life took an abrupt turn when Quinn's mom died. Leaving Quinn to be the responsible one.

I love that Quinn is a female who is strong enough to stand on her own 2 feet. She can handle herself very well next to any man. Even though she lives in constant put down because she chooses to live her life in a setting that is normally dominated by men. She doesn't back down and keep perusing what she loves.

However when Tazen comes into her life just to take all she had left she becomes more determined to show everyone what she is made of.

Tazen is a hot and very famous car builder. Who has his own empire. But it not enough to have one of the biggest shops in LA he wants the shop Quinn's family owns. But he also wants Quinn.

From the moment he saw her he was intrigued. Then he comes to find out she is the mechanic who owns the shop he is looking to buy. That doesn't stop him though he continues to peruse her and taking whatever she throws at him.

Hard to Break is very hot and entertaining. The chemistry between Tazen and Quinn is very intense  and keeps you on wanting to read more about what goes on between them. I can honestly say I have never read a Bella Jewel book that I didn't love or fall inlove with its characters.
