Product Description

Product Description

Kiki Michaelson wants one wild night to forget her starving-artist worries. Simple.

Only instead of Darren Cole becoming her one-night stand, he taunts her with a challenge. Then while she’s trying to best him at his own game, he turns out to be the last thing she’s prepared for: someone she wants to keep.

Which means all he can ever be…is a friend.

Darren Cole never allows a girl to get close—not close enough to matter.

Then storms in Kiki Michaelson, a beautiful, fearless temptation that rocks his world off-balance. But he fights their attraction, unwilling to gamble something physical with their close ties. Until the passionate sculptor exposes her heart and breaks his wide open.

In that moment it becomes clear: she could never be just a friend.

Sometimes what you run from…is exactly what you need.

***HEARTBREAKER is a standalone, full-length new adult romance told in dual POV. Due to mature themes and adult language, this book is for those 18 and older.***

Read On Behalf Of A Book Lover’s Emporium Book Blog

Where the hell have I been and why have I not read anything from these two? That’s about to change after reading Heartbreaker. I loved this book! It was extremely well written and I literally read it from start to finish. As a matter of fact, I stayed up until 5 am reading. I needed to know how Darren and Kiki’s love story was going to end!

I loved how this book was told from both Darren and Kiki’s point of view, alternating chapter to chapter. Brilliant. We knew what they were thinking and feeling from chapter to chapter. THANK GOD! Because there were moments I wanted to shake both of them and say “Look! Look what is right there in front of you!” Ahhhh the torture. But that’s what makes a romance gripping, right? Trust me, I was gripped!

God I love Darren so much. He’s a protector and such a good guy. He’d do anything for the ones he loves. He’s sexy and super sweet. And he’s hilarious. What more could you want in a book boyfriend?! He checks off all the boxes! I need him in my life!

I was cheering for Darren and Kiki from the beginning. Even though they fought their undeniable attraction, I just knew they HAD to be together. Just had to! Wow. Every time they were together I could feel the chemistry! I’m pretty sure I witnessed sparks flying from my kindle. And the sparks hit me in all the right places! **fans self** So when things FINALLY picked up with these two. Whoa. Let me just say, I felt hot all over. I adore these two!

Heartbreaker is a wonderful story that captivated me from beginning to end. I felt heartbreak and heart ache. It was funny and entertaining. Passionate and sexy. I fell in love with Darren and Kiki and the authors. Heartbreaker is an immensely beautiful story about giving yourself to someone you love, as long as YOU are whole and happy. And I was oh, so happy with this amazing book

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique and intense romance, that overflows with emotions... 22 March 2016
By Beneath The Covers Blog - Published on
Heartrending, passionate, and captivating! Heartbreaker is a riveting page-turner that will leave you breathless with raw emotions, and the need to hold tight to the ones you love!

Kiki Michaelson wants a one-night stand. Nothing more. And she wants it with Darren Cole. But the Rolling Stones said it best: you can't always get what you want. A hidden secret prevents Kiki from wanting more. So she's willing to settle for being "just friends".
Darren Cole doesn't allow himself to get close to anyone...let alone Kiki Michaelson, no matter how much he wants to. His past and responsibilities are more important than his needs. But when his responsibilities and desires collide, can Darren finally allow himself to live his own life?...or will his guilt and obligations override his wish for happiness?

Heartbreaker pulled and pushed me in several different emotional directions. My heart broke for both Kiki and Darren, for what they've both endured. While Kiki's past leaves her apprehensive to trust another man with her heart, Darren would willing give his heart to her, only his past prevents himself the ability to do so. I felt frustrated with Darren, with his inability to live both his own life, and the role of caregiver to his sister. And she puts all men into one category. But as their relationship progressed, with a little help from their friends and family, my heart melted. I turned into a lovey-dovey, goo-fest over the romance shared between them. I laughed at the quirky banter between all the characters, and I cried for the real life circumstances thrown at them. This story gives you hope that happiness and love can still be found in the most dire of situations.

Heartbreaker leaves you with the realization that love can be scary. It makes you take a blind leap of faith, trusting in the other to not let you fall. But if you do fall, you need to have the courage to get back up, dust yourself off, and try again.

5 Heartfelt Stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaker 23 March 2016
By deb1210 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Heartbreaker is a beautiful love story of Kiki and Darren. Kiki is a strong, independent woman who never lets anyone get too close. Her pitfall is she genuinely cares. She gives unconditionally and unfortunately it has caused some of her issues.

Darren is more of the protector-type. He doesn't run when things get real. He's also a take charge type of person. He takes responsibility for his actions, even if his choices may not have been the best.

Amazing is how I see their story! Kiki and Darren seem to be yin and yang! They compliment each other-it just takes awhile for them to realize it. Their romance is full of love. It has a friends to lovers type feel with some small twists. There were surprises along the way that kept you intrigued. I also enjoyed the dual point of views! The back and forth was done well.

This is the first book I have read by Kat Bastion and it was a heartfelt story. I laughed, smiled, and felt a couple of heartstrings being pulled! It's a slow-burn type of story. The main characters weren't looking for anything and ended up with so much more. I highly recommend this first installment of this new Unbreakable series!

4 stars/3.5 flames

This book was gifted to me for the express purpose of an honest review. The rating and review are solely my opinion and in no way was I compensated.
4.0 out of 5 stars The Bastions can write amazing characters. 11 May 2016
By Julie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I had no idea what to expect from Heartbreaker. I've not heard of the Bastion writing team and I've obviously been missing out. I'm not totally for sure how I could have missed out on them for so long but that will be quickly rectified because I'm very interested in what else they have out on the shelves right now.

I was about halfway through the first page of this book and I was totally hooked. I found myself completely immersed in the book. And it was all because of the characters. The Bastions can write amazing characters. I was completely entranced with Kiki and Darren. I wanted more and more from each of them. The way that these two characters interacted was absolute perfection. The push and pull between them was captivating. Together, they created a beautiful love story that was almost sickeningly sweet. I don't know that I would change anything about them. However, I do wish that I had read the other series where Kiki and her siblings were involved because even though this was a standalone novel, that backstory would have been great to have. Guess it just means I'll have to read that series!

So it sounds like I loved the story, so why the four star rating, right? There was just something missing in the plot for me. I'm clueless as to what it was. The book was good but it didn't pull me in. It didn't steal minutes away from me as I poured over the pages. It didn't demand my time and I really wanted it to. I wanted to be able to lose myself but I just couldn't. It was a little too easy to put down when I had things that I had to do and sure, it was equally as easy to jump right back into but I wanted to have to fight with myself to put Heartbreaker down when I needed to do something. I know, it sounds silly. Anyway, I don't know what could have changed within the pages to give me that escape. If I did, it sure would make it easier to pick out books in the future!

This is a great book though. The romance is awesome and you'll just love Kiki and Darren together because I know that I did.

3.0 out of 5 stars A really good beginning to this new series! 5 April 2016
By Angela - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
3 1/2 STARS

A good beginning to the series. I enjoyed reading this book and liked how it drew me in from the start. It has a really good plot, well developed characters that are very likeable and easy to relate to, gut wrenching situations that will break your heart, lots of humor, some sizzling hot sex, intriguing, and overall a sweet romantic story. The Hero knows all about tragedy and the suffering that it causes. He's been merely surviving the last two years since his family was torn apart, by working multiple jobs, going to school, working out, and taking care of the only family he has left, never allowing himself anything more. The heroine has had a horrible experience in the past with men and refuses to allow her heart to get broken ever again. She's also hiding a huge secret from everyone cause she's afraid of looking like a failure to them. Having had an attraction to the Hero for months and after two failed attempts to seduce him during her requested rides home from him, she decides to try one last time. When he refuses her and explains that although he's attracted to her that they can never be more than friends, they both reluctantly agree. While helping her train for a 5K run, they both fight their attraction to the other. Will they get their HEA? Or will life get in the way again?
This is the first book I've read from these authors and I really like their writing style, as well as the way they can draw you into the story. The only reason I gave this 3 1/2 stars was because even though the beginning started out great and kept me intrigued throughout the book, towards the end it became so predictable that it was almost boring. It was definitely not the kind of ending that I expected after reading the first part of the book. It's not that it was a bad story, it was still really good despite the predictability. With the uniqueness at the beginning of the book, the end just fell short to me. This is a good book and I will be reading more from this writing duo in the future, especially anymore in this series.
These are only my opinions and it's obvious that a lot of others loved this story. If you're interested in reading it but not sure, I suggest requesting a sample to read for yourself so you can decide if it's for you. I do recommend this book to those looking for a sweet romance.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable!! 1 April 2016
By Ralou T. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The duet Bastion never cease to amaze me with their amazing ability to suck me deep into each story and world they create. First The Espionage Effect and now, Heartbreaker. As it seems, I can’t get enough of their stories, hot BBFs, unique loves, etc. And if I judge from what I’m feeling right after finishing this one – and every time after a Duet Bastion’s book -, I am set for getting more sucked and spellbound with every other release of theirs.

But now, the spotlight belongs to the great Heartbreaker! So, let’s make some introductions first, shall we?

Well, the lead characters of this book are, Kiki Michaelson and Darren Cole. The first one is an artist-sculptor and a co-owner of the organizing-parties business she shares with her siblings and the second is a DJ who plays at these parties. Sounds like a quite ordinary setting with a bit-of-predictable unfolding, right? But, no no no. Don’t let it fool you. Because its unfolding is far form predictable and much much more ……. intriguing! And everything starts with a simple characterization – a pretty accurate one I may add – of Kiki’s concerning Darren. And what is that? But of course the one I put on the rate: Sex On Stick. And this gets to be the starting point of these two’s incredible, consuming love that will lead to the only finish line Fate have them meant to cross.

The evolution of Kiki and Darren’s relationship is beyond interesting. They start from an attempted one-night stand, to become co-runners, to friends and to end up being lovers and ……. soul mates. They share a pretty deep connection from the start which neither wants or risks to acknowledge and make it real because the personal barriers and STOP signs they have put on themselves don’t let them. But, regardless, the thread Fates made for them couldn’t care less for their hesitations, even though they are fairly put there. What they have is much bigger than any hesitation and won’t bend on these because its mission is to bring them together and make them One. And the way it decides to succeed it, it’s simply mind-blowing.

This book has so so soo many things that touched me deeply and made me more connected to it, that I don’t know which one to talk about first. But I think I will start from the more generals and book-concerning and continue with the more personal ones.

So, one of the things that stands out pretty good in this story is the chemistry – duh, that’s the point – between Kiki and Darren. The double POV – something that I really appreciate in a love story – has the role to make us understand their pull to each other, but, even without that, it’s really obvious the strength with which their hearts, souls, minds, bodies reach out to the other’s. To their other half! Also, another thing is the inevitable surrender to their feelings since the battle to stay away was utterly lost. And it may be something common when the story is about two people that resist each other, the element that makes it different every time is what is lurking past that resistance. And in Darren and Kiki’s case, this element is making up for every “ugly” and frustrating moment between them in the book. And at the same time, is the main thing that pushes them harder and harder and keep them fighting for their love no matter what Life throws at them. In the end, the complicated but quite simple personalities that Kat & Stone gifted Kiki and Darren with, is more than enough to make my heart soar. As for the cover of the book? My words aren’t enough and, besides, they wouldn’t make it justice since it’s more than words can describe. The only thing that I can say is that in one of these covers that you never get bored to stare at because you just. Can’t. Take. Your. Eyes. Off. It. The intensity and hotness it emits leaves you breathless! My deepest congratulations to the graphic designer!!!!

One of the things I loved about Heartbreaker was that amazing note from Stone Bastion at the end of the book. Besides making my assumptions about Darren’s music blood being based on personal experience true and valid, it had me see the author and the book character as one person, one mind. Plus, even though I was already deeply connected with both Kiki and Darren since I’m both really into music and art, it made my connection with Darren more solid and made me love him even more. I could totally understand the music stick he has and I was more than happy to see than all the consuming passion for music that flows through the books comes from real life.

Once again I got swept off my feet with the writing of this authors’s duet and can’t find to get down from where it took me: up up up in the clouds floating like a happy, weightless leaf. I really can’t imagine what the future will send my way from these two authors but I bet my every cent on it that they will do their magic on me again and every time I get my hands on one of their stories. They are simply one of the best, most stimulating, most cherished and unforgettable ones I had ever had the chance to across to.
