Luc Chevalier is a satisfied man—or so he thinks. His businesses are thriving, he has all the excitement, money and beautiful women any man could want. He dines at the best restaurants and stays at the most luxurious hotels as he makes his way around the globe. So why does he suddenly find himself so restless?
Megan Sullivan is a single mom with a rather ordinary life. She is comfortable with things just the way they are. She has a six-year-old son, Elliott, a cozy house in Boulder, Colorado, and a photography business to put food on the table. Her ex lives hours away in Florida, providing enough space for him to feed his drug addiction without exposing Elliott to his father's illness. Megan is on her own and she intends to keep it that way.
Megan is convinced by her best friend to take a trip to Paris for a few days. Little does she know she is about to be thrust into the arms of Luc Chevalier, the sexiest man to ever set foot on the Eiffel Tower. They agree to one night together and no more. In those few short hours he manages to draw out the passionate woman that Megan has carefully hidden way for years. Once she has a taste of what she's been missing, she finds it almost impossible to go back to her life as it was.
Will two people who don't believe in happily-ever-after manage to put aside their doubts and find their forever?
Join Luc as he discovers that everything he never wanted is the only thing he will ever need.

The first book in the series didn’t work out well for me but, as you can see, that didn’t stop me from reading this second instalment. As soon as Luc Chevalier showed up in Break In Two (book one in the Full Hearts series), I knew I would have loved to read his own story and it’s with great pleasure that I tell you it didn’t disappoint me at all.

Luc and Megan are a couple of strong, independent characters who find themselves involved in something they really couldn’t have planned . . . I loved the way things progress between them and how the reader gets to see both of their lives—so very different. You learn to know them separately and find a connection with both, then fall for them a bit more every time they’re together and can’t wait to see what is going to happen next. It’s not easy as you may think, there are certain events in which the read take turns you wouldn’t have expected, and that is one of the things that really showed how MJ Summers has improved her writing.

Sweet, sexy, emotional but also funny, Breaking Love has certainly been a pleasant surprise. If you’re looking for a loving, escaping read with a very charming hero, this book may be just right for you, and it can be read as a standalone novel!

  1. I am delighted to see book two was a winner for you. Sometimes if a book is meh, I will try the second. I can see Luc's appeal. I love that this is sweet and emotional but has some heat too.

    I'm glad to see that this one was better and that you tried to stick with the series. Sometimes we can have some great surprises!

  3. You definitely can. Although Luc is a character who makes his first apparition in the first book, you can read this second instalment as a stand-alone with no problems whatsoever. Indeed, we have to love when we get this oportunity 😉

    Ooh, I was wondering if it could be read as standalone and then you answered my question. 🙂 I'm glad that you stuck with this series – and ended up liking this second installment. I like strong individuals as they generally make for strong couples. Lovely review, Silvia!
