Product Description

He’ll fight her every step of the way. She’s fighting because there is no other way to keep him alive.

Legendary FBI profiler Matteo Cassano gives the orders. He is not accustomed at all to following them. The control-freak legend of the FBI could have any woman he wants, and often had in the past. But when he meets the amazing, younger Brenna Langley, he might have finally found the woman that could change his entire life.

Brenna Lagley is professional, focused, and determined to move ahead in her career with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Having tried a few failed relationships, she had decided that romance would not be in the cards for her. That was, until Matt Cassano enters her orbit and she finds herself on a secret, covert mission to save the great man from himself.

But what happens when these two determined personalities clash and the change is more than either one of them bargained for? And when Matt’s health becomes an issue, can the fledgling relationship survive?

STANDALONE. HEA. Romantica erotica.

Now, Catherine Nanetta, you are exaggerating and you know it. Jealousy only brings out your wrinkles, dear, and lying is a mortal sin. You don't want me to have to ask the priest to...

Only a mother's voice could hit that exact perfect tone, an incredulous mixture of guilt and shame, with just a touch of irritation thrown in for good measure.

I don't think I've ever heard of someone dying from eating their vegetables. But I'm sure if it's going to happen, you'll do it with panache.

Now lie your butt back in that bed and rest or so help me god, I'm going to get Nurse Helga, Queen of Pain in here to give you an enema!

My Review:

Matteo Cassano has a demanding job with the FBI; an elderly yet vibrant and meddlesome mother; three sassy and mouthy younger sisters that he has labeled as harpies and the Sisters of Satan; a smoking hot new love affair budding with his FBI co-worker that has been leading a double life and nefariously woven her way into every aspect of his life; and the least of his problems is a newly discovered heart condition. What is a coffee/red meat/sweets addict to do but ignore his Dr. and continue on in denial? The storyline is heaving with humor, argumentative family drama, and erotic sensual scenes. Oh my.

Heartbeats by Sarah O’Rourke
4 stars!!!

“For the first time in my life, I can feel my heart beating. And it’s beating for us."

This is my first read by Sarah O’Rourke and as well as delivering a cute romance this book had me chuckling as they expertly nailed the hilarious shenanigans only an oestrogen filled Italian family could bring. This book caught my eye because of my favourite TV programme, Criminal Minds. Both our hero and heroine are criminal profilers and I had visions of long loved characters at the BAU coming to life in words. While this book only touches on their careers, I was more than satisfied, but this story is more about the romance between Matteo Cassano and Brenna Langley and what a smile inducing one it was.

This is a whirl wind romance and moves at warp speed, but these two have known each other a long time and have lusted over each other from afar for a while. So, for those that are not a fan of instalove please bear that in mind.

Brenna is in her mid-twenties and has been admiring her older colleague, Matteo for quite some time. Even though Brenna is a strong woman, when it comes to her love life she is a lot more reserved. When Brenna comes across a piece of information pertaining to Matteo that has her all worried about his welfare, operation subterfuge comes into play as she tries in vain to help her languishing colleague, with hilarious at times results.

“Hell hath no fury like three Cassano sisters who have been misinformed.”

With Mama Cassano and three “Spawn” sisters the oestrogen levels in the Cassano family is at an all-time high and being the oldest and the only male in the family the females in the Cassano’s have Matteo wrapped around their little fingers and there is nothing that this Italian man wouldn’t do for any of them. Much to Matteo’s dismay though, it cuts both ways and these Italian women are just as forthright and bossy when it comes to their son and brother.

“And hell hath no fury like the three Cassano sisters who were just following their Mama's orders.”

Matteo doesn’t have a great track record with women and with his job and his other career as an author there is not much time in his hectic life for the opposite sex. However, Brenna Langley may just be the exception to the rule, if Matteo can get his head out his back side to realise. With the rest of the Cassano’s firmly on Brenna’s side though, Matteo does not stand a chance, not that he wants to.

"I want the fairytale, Matteo. I never realized that I did until now."

I had tears of laughter reading this one, these Italian women are funny as hell as individuals and hilarious as a collective. The passion and love in the Cassano family is the crux that holds them together and anyone reading would be envious of the connection that this family has. Low on angst, high on laughs and steam Sarah O’Rourke deliver a well-rounded story that gives you a huge dose of the warm and fuzzies. Heart-warming and panty melting this was a great, easy read.

“Only a mother's voice could hit that exactly perfect tone, an incredulous mixture of guilt and shame, with just a touch of irritation thrown in for good measure.”

I'm a huge fan of Sarah O'Rourke's, and their Passion in Paradise: The Men of the McKinnon Sisters series is one of my all time favorites. Heartbeats is something totally new from them, and I really enjoyed it! I can always count on these two creative collaborators to deliver a healthy dose of their unique sense of humor, and they definitely did that it in this well-written standalone.

Matteo Cassano and Brenna Langley are FBI colleagues with crushes on each other. When Brenna learns a secret about Matteo, she launches her own undercover operation to ensure he's taking matters seriously and runs herself ragged in the process. Fortunately, she has a team in place in the form of Matteo's old school Italian mother and three overbearing younger sisters. But what starts out as Brenna's plan to save Matteo, takes a sharp turn when it's Matteo who has to save Brenna. What will happen when these two headstrong, proud and brilliant minds realize that it's their hearts on the line?

Sweet, hilarious and sexy, Sarah O'Rourke gave her readers a great love story in Heartbeats. I absolutely loved it!

First I'd like to say that I went into this book blind and loved it from page one to the end ..

Brenna has been eyeing Matteo quietly for months and her feelings only grew stronger, when Brent found out Matteos secret she will go to the ends of the world to help him? Can her intrusive behavior hinder her quest to be with him..

Matteo has been adoring Brenna from afar noticing her notice him, he has trust issues, he stubborn, and most of all he doesn't like to be told what to do or what not to do..

This book hooked me from page one, it flowed nicely never felt lost or confused..
If I had to change anything it would be the use of first and last name over half the time names are mentioned it tapered off near the ending chapters

My favorite secondary character is Matts Mama! She's feisty and some reason I pictured a dark haired version of Sophia from Golden Girls.. this book is laugh worthy and so good.. I love all the books Sarah O'Rourke has put out thus far.. keeping it coming

Another amazing story by an awesome author. Sarah O Rourke keeps getting better and better with each new story she does. I love Sarh Rourke books.

This is a tory about Matteo and Breanna who are good at their jobs but at what expense? Breanna worries about Matteo after she come across something he has been hiding from his family and coworkers. Breanna starts making changes for him without his knowledge so that his life would be easier but undoing all this for him she forgets to take care of herself. When Matteo finally discovers what she has been doing he hits the roof. This is a story about a Italian family and who doesn't love the special love they have for one another, Breana gets Matteo's mother and his three sisters on her side. Will Matteo and Breana get their HEA or will someone or something come between them? Must read to find out.

I really enjoyed this new entry by the talented writing duo known as Sarah O'Rourke. The story of love coming to two members of an FBI team is bolstered by their engagement in saving lives. Matteo Cassano and Brenna Langley are such a great couple as they overcome their struggles. For me, the best part was the importance of his Italian family. I grew up in a small town in the San Francisco Bay Area with a large population of Italian and Sicilian fishermen and their families. The book accurately and lovingly depicts the daily closeness of these multigenerational entities lead by Matt's mother and his three adult sisters. It was like a Sunday afternoon visit to my neighborhood.
The underlying theme of heartbeats is cleverly repeated through the book, enough to add to the enjoyment but not too much. Order a copy and discover the heartbeat pathway.
