Heartbreak for Hire by Sonia Hartl

Pre-Order on Amazon!
Release Day: July 27, 2021

Brinkley Saunders has a secret.

To everyone in the academic world she left behind, she lost it all when she dropped out of grad school. Once a rising star following in her mother’s footsteps, she’s now an administrative assistant at an insurance agency—or so they think.

In reality, Brinkley works at Heartbreak for Hire, a secret service that specializes in revenge for jilted lovers, frenemies, and long-suffering coworkers with a little cash to spare and a man who needs to be taken down a notch. It might not be as prestigious as academia, but it helps Brinkley save for her dream of opening an art gallery and lets her exorcise a few demons, all while helping to empower women.

But when her boss announces she’s hiring male heartbreakers for the first time, Brinkley’s no longer so sure she’s doing the right thing—especially when her new coworker turns out to be a target she was paid to take down. Though Mark spends his days struggling up the academic ladder, he seems to be the opposite of a backstabbing adjunct: a nerd at heart in criminally sexy sweater vests who’s attentive both in and out of the bedroom. But as Brinkley finds it increasingly more difficult to focus on anything but Mark, she soon realizes that like herself, people aren’t always who they appear to be.

4 Stars

Heartbreak for Hire is such a fun, sexy and charming read! This is the first book I've read from this author and now I'm a big fan. This book made me laugh and fall for Brinkley's crazy antics. And I loved her crazy, sweater-wearing cat, Winnie. 

As you know, Brinkley has a secret, her mother and frenemies all think she left grad school to work as a boring administrative assistant at an insurance agency, but that is just a cover-up. After a devastating heartbreak from a not so great relationship - Brinkely was hurt and burned by men. So when her soon-to-be new boss approaches her after being dumped, she hires her to take down chauvinistic men. It's not her ideal job, but it's paying the bills and helping her save away for her dream - to own an art gallery. And it's also making her feel empowered after her own breakup. But everything changes when she meets her new target, Mark.

Mark is a great character who misunderstood from the beginning. Brinkley and Mark have great chemistry to begin with, but their circumstances causes a lot of issues. 

This book has plenty of humor and fun. It's steamy and addictive and had me reading nonstop!
