Book Review: Heartbreaker by Stacey Kennedy

Heartbreaker (Filthy Dirty Love)
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.

Heartbreaker is book one in the Filthy Dirty Love series. Yes, this series couldn't have been better named. This is a second chance lust-to-love story that begins with an intensely steamy one-night stand. This story brings on the heat! There are plenty of steamy scene that will fire up your senses.

Joss O'Neil is assigned to the west precinct of the the Seattle Police Department. She's a rookie with a big goal to be a detective. As chance may have it Joss's new boss is none other than Maddox Hunt, police lieutenant, total badass, resident heartbreaker and the one-night stand she had a year ago. It was a year ago when Joss had been dumped by her long time boyfriend, the man she put first and let dictate her life. She was headed to the police academy and didn't want a relationship so a one-night stand was just what she needed. But what she couldn't forget was the connection she felt that night.

Maddox is not a relationship type of guy. He makes it clear to women that it's only a one-time deal. Maddox has one-night stands and disposes of the women before they can dispose of him. It's how he deals with his feelings about his mother, who had left him as a child and never returned. When Joss reappears in his life Maddox can't help feeling like they have unfinished business.

This story is sexy! Maddox is all Alpha. He's a filthy, dirty, possessive bastard. Joss and Maddox have an intense chemistry that keep you turning the pages. I found myself cheering for Maddox, Joss and their HEA. I loved the epilogue. Stacey Kennedy never fails to leave you feeling good at the end. 4 Stars!
