Handcuffs aren't just part of their job in this sizzling new standalone romance by USA Today bestselling author, Stacey Kennedy. Veteran cop, Maddox Hunt, is all about the job. Sure, there are women-lots of women, truth be told-but there's no one special. Until a one-night stand from his past, rookie Joss O'Neil is assigned to his division. Suddenly, all he can think about is her. The scent of her. The taste of her. Fresh out of field training, Joss has thrown herself into her job, determined to kick-start her career. And while police work has its thrills, her gorgeous new boss is what really gets her pulse pounding. Too bad he's nothing but a distraction. Especially since he's as devastatingly handsome as she remembers, and his sexy smile arrests her heart. Now that Joss is back in Maddox's life, he has a plan: satisfy her fantasies and fulfill his every dark desire. Nothing is off limits. Her pleasure is the endgame . . . but even the best-laid plans have a way of falling apart. Despite his best attempts to keep his distance and have things remain only about the pleasure, Maddox soon finds himself breaking the only law he's set for himself. Don't fall in love.

Cocktails and Books received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect our opinion of the book or the content of our review.

I like everything Stacey Kennedy writes and I wasn’t disappointed with HEARTBREAKER.  I enjoyed every minute of this book. It is a wickedly erotic story with characters that are realistic and memorable.

Maddox is a lieutenant with the police force.  He is content with his simple life of working and one night stands.   Maddox’s nickname is heartbreaker because he has no interest in a relationship, although many women have tried to change his mind.

Maddox and Joss met at a nightclub a year ago and had incredible sex. It was Joss’s first one night stand and one of many for Maddox.  A year later they are thrown together when Joss starts working as a rookie for the police force and she learns Maddox is her boss.  Maddox is Joss’s lieutenant and she knows she has to forget her wild night with him, even if it wàs one of the most amazing nights of her of her life.  Maddox also finds he can’t stop thinking about Joss and everything about her turns him on. They try to ignore the sexual tension they feel whenever they are near each other.

I liked Maddox.  He is bold, arrogant and likes to talk dirty.  Maddox loves when a strong woman lets him dominate her.  Joss is strong and independent and she enjoys giving Maddox complete control.  She has never been with anyone like him.  He makes her feel things she never felt before.  He takes her on sexual adventures she has never dreamed of and she can’t help herself, she keeps coming back for more.  Can Joss keep her heart safe from this heartbreaker.  I enjoyed this incredibly hot, engaging story.

I love a contemporary romance loaded with banter and chemistry with a protective alpha male pursuing a feisty female. When I’m not reading I’m spending time with my family and fostering dogs. I've been reviewing for Cocktails and Books since April 2013.
