Product Description

Product Description

The problem with heartache is that there’s no one-size-fits-all relief package. You can go to classes; you can try to embrace change. But when you wake up at two in the morning, a smile on your face because you’ve dreamt about the could have—the should have—nothing will console you.
Because seconds later, you remember.
And remembering can rip you apart.


Kate will do anything for her family. It’s why she took the job with Lee. It’s why she’s attempting to forget her pain. But it's hard to forget, when you're desperate to hold on. Even if Lee Collins is the perfect package.

Lee will do anything for the ones he cares about. It’s why he hired Kate.
It’s why he keeps his secrets; and it’s why he cannot, will not fall in love. Not with Kate—not with anyone.

The one thing he can’t forgive.
The one thing she can’t forget

5.0 out of 5 stars The Problem With Heartache 28 February 2015
By Lauren Firminger - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Amazing! Lauren, you have done it again. Book #3 in the Crazy in Love series was no disappointment. The Problem With Heartache took me on a range of emotions. The tears, the OMG moments, the heart stopping jaw dropping "WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME, LAUREN?!" moments. I applaud you.

The Problem with Heartache gives you a much deeper look at Lee Collins and let's you see more of Kate. The only bad thing about the book? Was that it ended. I could quite happily have kept reading. You got to see Stacey and Michael again and take a small glimpse into what a rockstar's life is like and the people they leave behind.

Painful, amazing, masterpiece. I can't wait to see what Lauren does next.

The Problem With Heartache is a book that all fans of Young Adult Contemporary Romances should read. This book is about falling in love, healing from a devastating love and letting go. It's a beautiful and painful journey all readers should take.

I love the Crazy in Love series. Lauren K. McKellar writes beautiful and heartbreaking stories that should be known in the book-blogosphere. She stole my bookish heart with the first book. I cried and cried while reading her first book in public and it was the ugly crying type. So I was dying to read this book since it picks up where the first book was left.

The main character, Kate, is one of those strong girls that has had a rough time. In the first book she has lost everything she knew and the person who made her realize how awesome she was and thought her to appreciate the small things. Now, with a broken heart and a sense of loss that can consume her, she's trying to keep going.

I didn't think I would be able to let Lachlan go. Just like Kate. I was holding strong, because he was such an amazing book boyfriend! I felt for him. But Lee Collins has also a story of his own and shares some special moments with Kate that it was hard not to fall for him, too. He's a famous musician, but he's had a rough life. He blames himself for his brother's death and has his own secrets. He's a good person, but in order to find his own happiness he has to battle his demons.

I loved how in this book, the author touched the topic of losing someone and how the main character was able to find the light at the end of the tunnel when some things are unable to cope with. I was glad to see how these two characters helped each other and how they could find happiness if they just let the grief and the guilt go. Because falling in love with someone else does not mean you're going to forget about the previous happiness and love that was in your love. Because loving Lee does not mean forgetting Lachlan and trusting someone with your darkest secrets and fears will not drive them away.

I am in love with this book and Lee Collins has everything to be the perfect fictional boyfriend. He has some moments that will make you swoon. Moreover, the ending of the book will make you smile big time. I had a hard time finding a book as good as this one after I finished reading it and all I can say to you is read it! And if you haven't read the previous books, go read them now. But you need to be prepared, because Lauren K. McKellar's books are loaded with lots feelings that will make you go on a bookish roller coaster of emotions!

If you loved John Green's books and you're searching for some good YA romance and drama, these are definitely your kind of books.

By Book Freak [cha] - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
"But the problem with heartache was it liked to screw you around like that. It didn’t stick to a schedule; didn’t show up and leave on cue."

It’s something that can make you blush, smile, laugh, and fall-in love. It can break your heart, and surprise you with twists and turns. Another keeper, another page-turner – a book that will hook you from start to finish.

"Just because you move on doesn’t mean you have to forget."

Here are two characters that have problems with heartache. Kate lost the one she loved, not to mention she still has problems with her family. And Lee? He has his own baggage to carry as well. His secret, his pain and guilt make one heck of a weight to carry on his back.

Kate was alive, but not living. Her pain was keeping her from wanting to experience happiness. Her parents growing concern made them push her to accept the job offer to go with Lee on the tour. Only that Lee was more than what she expected.

Lee has a big generous heart and he was willing to do anything for people he cared about. He has reasons why he can’t allow himself to fall in love. Not even with Kate whom he grew to like every day. His secrets wouldn’t allow it. His conscience can’t bear it. So despite the fact that both his heart and hormones call out her name, he just couldn’t do it.

Will the both of them be able to move past their issues and realize that the best thing that could happen to them is staring right in their faces?

It’s sweet and funny, heartwarming and heartbreaking, and just plainly great. What I love about this is the anticipation she built with her readers regarding the secrets her characters keep. And when it finally surfaced – her readers are in for the biggest surprise of their lives.

This is my first Lauren McKellar novel, and I have to admit, I was totally entertained, moved, and I just can’t help but loved every pages of it.

"The problem with heartache is that you can’t mourn forever."

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreakingly life affirming 9 March 2015
By Glass Paper Ink Bookblog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
It's no secret that The Problem with Crazy utterly decimated me, it took me weeks, possibly months to recover from, the love I have for that book, for Lauren McKellar's words was and still is astronomical. I knew stepping back into Kate's world would be fraught with emotions, I was ready, prepared even, for anyone who has ever lost someone unexpectedly you know all to well the stages of grief, you know what it's like to wake up in the morning and have that split second of happiness before the crushing pain floods your memory. You know with a painful clarity what it's like to be smiling and laughing only to remember that that person is no longer walking this earth with you. There's a shroud of darkness and desolation that seems to hang over you, that invades your every thought making it almost impossible to move on. For McKellar to truly nail that with such eloquence, to make me as the reader FEEL every second of that is a testament to her talent.

The Problem with Heartache is so much more than just a story about grief though, this is a story of hope, of survival, this is a story of letting go but not saying goodbye, because for anyone who has ever lost someone you know that memories live on long after death.

There is so much humour in this story, so many moments that had me giggling and outright laughing, McKellar proves that life goes on, even when at times we don't want it to, she shows that there are days when it's hard just putting one foot in front of the other, and days that grief is more of a faded memory not a grey cloak dragging you down.

In the aftermath of Lachlan's death, Kate is alive but she isn't living, survival has become her main focus, get up, make it through the day, wash, rinse, repeat, but when Lee Collins offers her an opportunity of a lifetime she is forced to step back into the land of the living. What follows is a story of two people recovering from the hurts of their past and actively making a decision to move forward with their lives. And that right there is the thing about heartache, about grief, you have to actively decide to want to move on, you don't have to say goodbye the memories but you do have to let the hurt go.

Once again McKellar has taken me on a journey with her, she's effortlessly created a world I want to live in, with characters I truly admire, and despite the moments of pain she inflicted on my battle weary heart, she left me feeling stronger, she's shown that life isn't always unicorns and cupcakes, but that life can be amazing if you're willing to take a leap and be part of it.

The Problem With Heartache, Lauren K. McKellar.

“The problem with life was that things didn’t always fall into place
or work out the way you’d planned.”

An intricate and beautifully written story, The Problem With Heartache is the third installment of the Crazy in Love series by Lauren K. McKellar. The Problem With Heartache is a HEA and although it is the third book in the series I feel like it can be read as a standalone; I did not read the previous two books and I had no problem following the story. However, if the first two books are anything like this one, you will want to read them all. I recommend you read the entire series. The point of view switches between the two main characters, Kate and Lee. I enjoyed always knowing what each character was thinking and was never left in the dark.

Young Kate is torn between two men…Lachlan and Lee, but one of them is dead. Six months after losing the love of her life, Kate is still mourning Lachlan. She never wants to forget him, his voice, his face, their love for one another. But, in an attempt to help provide for her family she finds herself touring with the famous rock band, Coal, and the lead singer, Lee, is causing her to struggle internally with being true to Lachlan and her budding feelings for Lee.

“Just because you move on doesn’t mean you have to forget.”

But Lee is struggling as well. He continues to live in the past, not allowing himself to move on from a haunting past that has caused him to believe that he is undeserving of love.

Together, will they be able to move on from their past and create a future together?

It has been a long time since I was truly captivated by a book. The Problem With Heartache is a sweet love story, a story of heartache, and a story of finding inner peace. McKellar did a wonderful job of weaving everyone’s stories together so that you were never lost but you also never knew exactly what the outcome was going to be. I truly look forward to reading more by this author.
