❤❤HEART BREAKER by Erin McCarthy 3 star review ❤❤

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

They’re perfectly in tune—but only when it comes to their music. This sizzling romance from New York Times bestselling author Erin McCarthy follows Nashville’s hottest country music duo as they fight for love in a city where dreams often cost a broken heart.

Self-made singer/songwriter Jolene Hart loves everything about being on top in Nashville. Well, everything except her very public breakup with Chance Rivers, her sexy masculine other half. Once the hottest duo on the scene, they turned Music City on its ear. Now their careers are as cold as their relationship. Which is why their manager has practically locked them in a remote cabin with nothing but a guitar, a bed, and time to do what they do best: make some beautiful music together.

As Nashville royalty, Chance has big boots to fill—and the pressure that comes with ’em. He fell hard for Jolene, but he couldn’t handle the spotlight, the crowds, and the fights that made headlines and killed any notion that love and success could go hand-in-hand. Still, Chance is more than willing to rekindle the one thing that worked: the wild passion behind their hit songs. Soon they’re making up for lost time, in the steamiest ways possible. But Chance finds himself wishing for the impossible: that their intimate hideaway could last forever.
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

I have never read Erin McCarthy, so she's a new author to me. I liked her writing style, even when the characters made me want to throw them out the window.

There were times in the storyline where it felt like our two love birds were having the same fight over and over. Communication was clearly lacking in their relationship. The one thing that really got under my skin was said communication. We also never discussed the truths behind the original breakup. I think that really really needed to be discussed. I also think there needed to be more of a end-all discussion with the new songwriter. Especially when how they knew each other was unleashed. It felt like to me, alot of their issues were never cleared up or discussed. She was always the one to cave to what he wanted. I didn't feel like he was the one to change or stand up for her, or them. It was kind of maddening.

BUT.. lord was it hot when you threw these two together in that cabin. And sweet, he did find ways to be sweet to her. When he wanted to.. but he also had a way to put his foot in his mouth and not yet ever make a way out of it. Lord have mercy did he have a way to put his foot in his mouth and pick at a woman's insecurities.

I guess when it came to him, as the Hero of the story, I just wanted more of an effort to fix the wrongs. I felt like that was missing. I didn't think he tried enough. Not when it came to her. I needed more growth. Too much was left unsaid for my tastes.
