WHR Synopsis

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.




Heart Breaker is a standalone novel by new-to-me author Erin McCarthy. It is a second chance romance that takes place in Nashville. I say second chance, but I think it may be a third chance, really. Regardless, it has an HEA.

The story revolves around Jolene and Chance. These two are a famous singer and songwriter duo. The chemistry between them is what has fueled many of their hits and has created a fan base. However, gossip in Nashville and outsides forces try to rip them apart.

I have to admit to being on the fence with this novel. I liked and enjoyed it, but I wasn’t blown away by it. There was also a point where if I could have, I’d have reach into my Kindle and bashed Chance over the head with it. I can thankfully say the ending made up for it.

Overall, it’s a pretty fun read and one I would recommend.
