Ten years is a long time to dwell on being stood up. Granted it was prom night which could make it a little more traumatic. Yet here is the dilemma. For somebody to carry a grudge that long, there must not be much happening in their lives. And as I called it is how our heroine Mina appeared.
Mina left her hometown for New York to pave a career in theatre, that hasn’t paid off. She is now working as an office supply girl to make ends meet which she hates. When her elevator at her apartment breaks down, it’s her high school lothario that comes to her aid.
Holden Whittaker is a good guy. One that has secrets and regrets. He just never expected them to haunt him a decade later. As you would imagine he had his reasons for behaving like he did. Fortunately he now has an opportunity to make amends.
Heartbreaker had the perfect recipe to be a goodie. A hot, sexy EMT groveling to a girl he once wronged and a chance encounter in a broken-down elevator. Wow I had been counting down to this… But unfortunately, this book was underwhelming. Considering I have adored all books by Julie Kriss, this just lacked the spark and gritty characters I have loved in the past.
