Heartbreak for Hire
Brinkley Saunders has a secret.
To everyone in the academic world she left behind, she lost it all when she dropped out of grad school. Once a rising star following in her mother’s footsteps, she’s now an administrative assistant at an insurance agency—or so they think.
In reality, Brinkley works at Heartbreak for Hire, a secret service that specializes in revenge for jilted lovers, frenemies, and long-suffering coworkers with a little cash to spare and a man who needs to be taken down a notch. It might not be as prestigious as academia, but it helps Brinkley save for her dream of opening an art gallery and lets her exorcise a few demons, all while helping to empower women.
But when her boss announces she’s hiring male heartbreakers for the first time, Brinkley’s no longer so sure she’s doing the right thing—especially when her new coworker turns out to be a target she was paid to take down. Though Mark spends his days struggling up the academic ladder, he seems to be the opposite of a backstabbing adjunct: a nerd at heart in criminally sexy sweater vests who’s attentive both in and out of the bedroom. But as Brinkley finds it increasingly more difficult to focus on anything but Mark, she soon realizes that like herself, people aren’t always who they appear to be.
I initially put this book down because it was one of those not the right moment to read things and waited a few months to read it. I am glad I picked up Heartbreak for Hire again because it was a fun book filled with feminism sexy scenes. The romance of this book was definitely hot.
I was able to read this book within a weekend once I was able to get into it.
I liked how unique the job was and Brinkley was likeable. I could relate to her well.
Thank you Netgalley and publishers for giving me the chance to read and review this book. This was a five star rating. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
