Sounds like the perfect day to Aidan Callahan. As second-born son to Chicago’s most influential business owner, Aidan’s life has always been about responsibility. Tradition. Toeing the goddamn line. Just do as you’re told, Aidan. Don’t make waves.
Well, screw that. Riding waves is way more fun than making them.
Hawaii is paradise on earth. Smoking hot women. Tiny bikinis. As far as Aidan’s concerned, wild horses couldn’t drag him kicking and screaming back to the windy city. Or at least that’s what he thought.
When his brother crashes his Mercedes, killing himself on impact, Aidan finds himself next in line to the Callahan fortune and all the ties that come with it.
And this time there’s no getting out of it.
A warm bed.
A steady job.
A brother who loves her.
For Essie Gray, life’s been one hard kick in the teeth after another. With her parents both dead, her brother is her only living relative. That is until Vaughn’s truck is written off, his life snatched away by the careless actions of a rich playboy in a flashy sports car.
Now, the only thing that will bring Essie peace is revenge. She must take what was taken from her. Only when the name Callahan has been wiped from the face of the earth forever will she be able to start living again.
Of course, the new head of the Callahan Corporation isn’t what she expected. Aidan’s sexy and sad, and just as damaged as she is. Will she be able to distance herself enough to accomplish her goal?
After all, ruining a man’s really hard when you find yourself falling for him…
“Hate is a curious thing. It feeds you, threatens to completely overwhelm you, yet at the same time, it leaves you feeling hollow. Hungry. It encases you, enshrouds you, but you never feel warm, never feel protected. It’s an empty thing, yet it can completely consume you, demanding you never forgive, never forget.”
Heart’s Revenge is the debut novel for Cole Jaimes and is a fantastic read. Now, I don’t normally read a lot of books by male authors; especially romance books, but I gotta tell you, he knocked it out of the park with this one.
Heart’s Revenge is well written and captivating.Told from dual points of view, Heart’s Revenge will pull you in from the very first page and has you dying to know more. Now, this book might be short, but I have to tell you, it really packs a punch. It has drama and heartbreak. It has revenge and some seriously steamy moments. This story will take your emotions for one heck of ride and will have you questioning the characters motives. And when you get the end, you’ll be dying to get your hands on the next part of the story….I know I was!
Heart’s Revenge is a wonderful debut novel. It really took me by surprise and has me super excited to read more. Cole Jaimes is definitely an author to keep an eye out for.
