"Breaking Love" by MJ Summers



BREAKING LOVE BY MJ SUMMERS

SERIES: Full Hearts #2
PUBLISHER: Piatkus
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
SOURCE: Publisher
LINKS: Goodreads | Book Depository

SUMMARY
Luc Chevalier, powerful billionaire and well-known heartbreaker, has everything he desires: power, luxury, beautiful women...and no strings attached. Now, an accidental meeting is about to make him question everything. Megan is a single mum leading a very ordinary life when she comes crashing into Luc's seemingly oh-so-perfect world for just one night in the city of love: Paris. Yet that night changes Megan. The part of her she'd hidden away for so long is brought back to life, and she knows she's out of her depth: Luc is beautiful, ruthless and—somewhere deep down inside—irreparably damaged. Breaking Love is the story of two people who have yet to find true happiness—can they put aside their fears and fight for what they truly want? One thing is for sure: life won't, life can't, ever be the same again...

MY REVIEW

The first book in the series didn't work out well for me but, as you can see, that didn't stop me from reading this second instalment. As soon as Luc Chevalier showed up in "Break In Two" (book one in the Full Hearts series), I knew I would have loved to read his own story and it's with great pleasure that I tell you it didn't disappoint me at all.

Luc and Megan are a couple of strong, independent characters who find themselves involved in something they really couldn't have planned... I loved the way things progress between them and how the reader gets to see both of their livesso very different. You learn to know them separately and find a connection with both, then fall for them a bit more every time they're together and can't wait to see what is going to happen next. It's not easy as you may think, there are certain events in which the read take turns you wouldn't have expected, and that is one of the things that really showed how MJ Summers has improved her writing.

Sweet, sexy, emotional but also funny, "Breaking Love" has certainly been a pleasant surprise. If you're looking for a loving, escaping read with a very charming hero, this book may be just right for you, and it can be read as a standalone novel!

RATING: 4/5

  1. I am delighted to see book two was a winner for you. Sometimes if a book is meh, I will try the second. I can see Luc's appeal. I love that this is sweet and emotional but has some heat too.

  7. You definitely can. Although Luc is a character who makes his first apparition in the first book, you can read this second instalment as a stand-alone with no problems whatsoever. Indeed, we have to love when we get this oportunity ;)

    Ooh, I was wondering if it could be read as standalone and then you answered my question. :) I'm glad that you stuck with this series - and ended up liking this second installment. I like strong individuals as they generally make for strong couples. Lovely review, Silvia!
