Heart Breaker Book 1
By Cole Saint Jaimes
Surf. Fuck. Get high.
Sounds like the perfect day to Aidan Callahan. As second-born son to Chicago’s most influential business owner, Aidan’s life has always been about responsibility. Tradition. Toeing the goddamn line. Just do as you’re told, Aidan. Don’t make waves.
Well, screw that. Riding waves is way more fun than making them.
Hawaii is paradise on earth. Smoking hot women. Tiny bikinis. As far as Aidan’s concerned, wild horses couldn’t drag him kicking and screaming back to the windy city. Or at least that’s what he thought.
When his brother crashes his Mercedes, killing himself on impact, Aidan finds himself next in line to the Callahan fortune and all the ties that come with it.
And this time there’s no getting out of it.
A warm bed. A steady job. A brother who loves her.
For Essie Floyd, life’s been one hard kick in the teeth after another. With her parents both dead, her brother is her only living relative. That is until Vaughn’s truck is written off, his life snatched away by the careless actions of a rich playboy in a flashy sports car.
Now, the only thing that will bring Essie peace is revenge. She must take what was taken from her. Only when the name Callahan has been wiped from the face of the earth forever will she be able to start living again.
Of course, the new head of the Callahan Corporation isn’t what she expected. Aidan’s sexy and sad, and just as damaged as she is. Will she be able to distance herself enough to accomplish her goal?
After all, ruining a man’s really hard when you find yourself falling for him…
Essie and Aiden have both lost their families. Essie, her brother and Aiden his brother and parents in the same accident. Aiden’s brother was at fault but the dynamics of this loss is the core of this story.
Essie was left with nothing and was dependent on her brother’s best friend to get by until she got on her feet. Aiden inherited a multi-billion dollar corporation that he really didn’t want to be part of.
They both have different ways of handling their grief. While Essie plots revenge against all things Callahan, Aiden makes the business even more successful, in spite of his initial thought of selling everything and going back to what he loves.
When these two come together it is a battle of dominants. Sparks flying and hotter than hot.
I really don’t like being kept hanging for the rest of a story though. Now I have to wait impatiently for Book 2.
