I didn t want to give anything away Just read the book everyone I just noticed it is an updated book of two stories written by Susan Mallery I should have paidattention to that also i listened to the audio book version of this and in German So a bit might have been lost in translation.Over all I enjoyed the characters I loved the beginning of the book and would have liked to seeof that kind and not just work out routines.I did not like D.J s mindset and how it all worekd out in the end Far too easy for such a backstory After the first few chapters I kept hoping for them to go on a man hunt or something That would ave been the better fitting storyline in my opi i listened to the audio book version of this and in German So a bit might have been lost in translation.Over all I enjoyed the

Heartbreakers series The most significant ties to previous books are to book 8 Otherwise, there isn t much else not fully explained in this volume.This is the most powerful book in the series It deals with a distressing topic which is D.J s backstory The heart of D.J s backstory is not revealed until later in the book view spoiler D.J s backstory involves physical abuse of herself and her mother by her father When she was 11, he hurt her so badly her This book concludes the Hometown Heartbreakers series The most significant ties to previous books are to book 8 Otherwise, there isn t much else

the book view spoiler D.J s backstory involves physical abuse of herself and her mother by her father When she was 11, he hurt her so badly her arm was crushed Then her mother kills her father and herself leaving DJ abandoned in foster care My problem is that I m not sure that it deals with the topic realistically, especially with her emotional scars hide spoiler As in many, if not most, Romance books, this book operates under that assumption that Romantic Love conquers all Unfortunately, also like may Romance books, it mixes and confuses Romantic love with Erotic love, or to my way of thinking, with lust and sex It is interesting that this books uses explicit sex asthan just something salacious and exploitative Perhaps the descriptions could have been slightly less explicit, but the things described are important to the plot.D.J s backstory is horrific Even early in the story, it is clear that her background has resulted in deep wounds and she has erected huge barriers to protect those wounds As a result her distrust of men is so great that she expresses it as a hatred of marriage My problem with the story is that wounds this deep cannot be cured by a magic bullet in just a few weeks time I also have grave doubts about the method that appears to have brought about that healing So I have mixed feelings about this story I give it 5 stars because the story is so powerful and touching, but I am tempted to give it 0 or 1 star because I am so skeptical of means to the result We all know that these stories cannot be taken as realistic at face value, but usually the HEA is not so closely related to this kind of trauma that is such a tragic topic in our society.Quinn has his own Daddy issues which have had such a great impact on the course of his life and the resulting solitary lifestyle A little lust goes a long way toward resolving these as well.I hated Quinn because of his arrogant and cruel behavior toward D.J His cruelty toward her continued even after he began to realize something of the nature of her emotional scars I had doubts early on whether I could tolerate D.J because of the huge chip she carried which gave her such a hard shell, but her backstory softened my dislike for her.Mature themes I have discussed these as related to sex scenes and as related to D.J s backstory The reader also knows that Quinn is an assassin working for the government Some interesting ideas but really spoiled by the old school mindset The heroine suffered childhood trauma and has reacted by becoming super tough, but the size and expression of the chip on her shoulder just seems unrealistic The hero is very much an alpha hero and that doesn t really work with this heroine, I think The book is very heroine focused she needs to learn to let go and fall in love but the way that s expressed is often very uncomfortable, e.g she has to dress sexy and ge Some interesting ideas but really spoiled by the old school mindset The heroine suffered childhood trauma and has reacted by becoming super tough, but the size and expression of the chip on her shoulder just seems unrealistic The hero is very much an alpha hero and that doesn t really work with this heroine, I think The book is very heroine focused she needs to learn to let go and fall in love but the way that s expressed is often very uncomfortable, e.g she has to dress sexy and get her hair and nails done It s explicitly requested demanded by the hero, and the overall impression one is left with is that D.J would like to be a girly girl sometimes but is prevented by Her Trauma and that will be Healed By True Love There are a billion and one other characters around clearly this is part of an ongoing series and all of them have very, very traditional relationships The heroine s best friend used to run an orphanage but now only does it part time because after all she has her own babies to take care of now D.J spends a lot of time being jealous of this friend and her femininity It s all very discomfiting, because while D.J is allowed by the narrative to be tough and the hero explicitly likes her toughness , her toughness is a direct response to earlier trauma and, similarly, her clothes, her way of life, her everything, is ascribed to this trauma and needs to be healed I feel like this might have been exciting fifteen years ago finally a Harlequin category heroine who is genuinely tough as nails but the stereotypes D.J embodies are really uncomfortable in this day and age Part of it, I think, is that she s coded aggressively tomboy tough, aggressive, stern with men but secretly terrified of them, dresses mannishly but is healed from all that by the love of a good man, which is bonkers and pretty insulting Yes, she keeps being tough and has all her black belts, but deep down she wants to wear pretty dresses and learn to submit to a man who is strong enough to make her but none of this is explicitly written in, the way it would be nowadays Have to say goodbye to the Hometown Heartbreakers families It was a wild and wonderful ride, fortunately I have revisit the clan down the road.I absolutely loved this series hadn t read a Mallery in a long
