Hart Broken - Annie Arcane

Mickey Hart doesn’t do one-night stands. Until she wakes up in a luxury penthouse. With nothing but a t-shirt. And no idea who it belongs to.

Enter Cale Windermere. Driven. Ambitious. Successful. And so gorgeous he could've walked straight out of a romance novel...


"I received digital copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review"

This was my first contemporary romance novel after long time. Before this book I didn’t have a good experience with this genre. Heck, I even convinced myself that contemporary is not my cup of tea. Boy how I was wrong. Thank you Annie for that. Before I go deeper in review I’ll quote myself (how egoistic of me). Anyway, after I finished the book I wrote Annie this: “You knocked my socks off, made me laugh, cry, and angry in just couple of days“. After this we can continue with the review.
First I'll go with a little spoiler – if you're not a fan of happy endings than this is not a book for you. But for a Disney princess happy ending type of girl like me this was a perfect book. Mickey is a broken girl, she doesn't do sharing keys and meeting parents thing. Well at least she doesn't do it until Cale wheels in her life. Cale is a drop-dead handsome billionaire in a wheelchair. Instead of being gloomy, self pity type of guy he is more a control freak, but a control freak in a good way. Mostly he is charming, gentleman with a sharp tongue.
Both of them come with a baggage, Cale more ready to share it with Mickey then the way round. Now when I think about everything the reason I liked Mickey was that I can relate with her. Don't get me wrong, I didn't have tragedies like hers in my life but I also had problems with commitments until finding the right guy plus she's close to my age.
Through whole book I was rooting for Cale, I was like Mel (Mickey's best friend). I was so angry when she didn't wanted to talk to him. I even started yelling at her. That was the time I realized it's just a book and I need to calm down and get my priorities straight. I think that all of this tell you how much I enjoyed reading this book.
Annie did a great job in switching between 3rd POV and 1st. Not usually a fan of that but she does it so clean and smoothly. No, I don't have anything bad to say about this book.

Annie, thank you very much for the book and for bringing me back to contemporary romance. You succeeded in beating Cecilia Ahren. I would also like to say thank you to Nik Krasno whose book Mortal Showdown I reviewed here and who recommended me to Annie.
And You my reader thank you for sticking till the end but why are not ordering your copy of this book? Hurry because there a couple of short stories coming up.  


About the author:
Annie doesn’t like long walks on the beach, getting dolled up, or HEA endings with a boringly perfect hero. She’d much rather be rock climbing, shooting guns, or ending on cliffhangers with a deliciously imperfect hero. And hugs. She likes hugs.

She also feels kinda sorta weird referring to herself in 3rd person.
