REVIEW ➞ Heartbreaker by Julie Kriss


Holden Whittaker broke my heart when I was eighteen. What kind of guy stands up his prom date and leaves her hanging, waiting for him to show up? A total jerk, that’s who.

Never mind. I left my tiny nowhere town and moved to New York to follow my dream of becoming an actress.

Ten years later, my dream hasn’t happened, and I’m working as the office supply girl at Morgan Financial Holdings, doing my best to keep my paycheck and not get fired by the world’s most terrifying boss. Life couldn’t get much worse, until I get stuck in an elevator and guess who comes to rescue me? In a city of eight million people, it’s Holden.

Turns out he’s moved to New York, too, to be an EMT. I don’t want to see my teenage nemesis as one of the good guys, but he’s out saving lives every day, and he’s still gorgeous and cocky. I could fall for him all over again, and that’s a problem. Because it’s only a matter of time before Holden crushes me again.

My hometown heartbreaker isn’t the guy I left behind anymore. If I could stop hating him, I might belong with him. The question is, which one of us will get hurt first?

In a world of uncertainty, there was one thing I knew about my life: I absolutely didn’t belong here.


Heartbreaker is a sweet second chance romance. This was a pretty quick read and I easily finished it in one sitting.

Mina isn’t happy with her job as an office supply girl, plus her boss is horrible. She has Broadway dreams. She gets a surprise when the boy who stood her up at prom shows up to rescue her. Holden may have been the popular kid in school, however, no one really knew what he was dealing with at home. When he see’s Mina again, it is his second chance to apologize and make things right. Will Mina be able to forgive Holden for something that happened years prior?

I loved Mina and Holden’s relationship. They have chemistry. I loved seeing their relationship change throughout the story. I loved Mina’s instant friendship with Tess and how much those two meant to each other. There are little bits of Graham, since Mina does work for his company.

Heartbreaker is a fun, second chance romance that is a fairly quick read.
