The Heartbreaker by Maddie James
Publication Date: June 5, 2010
Format: e-book and paperback
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Summary: The Heartbreaker is back in town. But whose heart will get broken this time? As athletic director for the Parks Department, Lucki Stevenson spends most of her time coaching unruly teenagers instead of giving her heart a much-needed pep talk. And when all-grown-up, boy-next-door, Dr. Sam Kirk moves back to town, Lucki wants to forfeit the game of love completely! Sam broke her heart once before, and she won't give him a chance to do it again... Returning home to care for his younger brother J.J., after his mother's death, Sam is happy to accept Lucki's expert advice about kids-and even happier that the tomboy he remembers is now a beautiful woman. When Lucki agrees to help him with J.J., Sam is sure he's on the road to success as an instant parent, and possibly as a husband-but first he's got to convince Lucki that he's not the heartbreaker he once was, and that good guys do finish first.
My thoughts: I loved this book. It will instantly draw you in to Lucki and Sam's story. Lucki is a very well liked character all the way around and as a reader she is very entertaining. Especially when the story starts with her getting shot in the butt by a bb gun! You know its going to be good and entertaining. Maddie James tells an excellent story. This is my first book by her and it will not be my last. Her writing style is perfect and never once did she veer off coarse and leave me wondering what was going on. All the characters in this story were entertaining and unique. This story takes place in a small town, so of coarse everyone knows everything about everyone. Back to Lucki and Sam, this was one of those stories where the male character Sam knew what he wanted and it just happened to be Lucki. However, he has to convince her that he isn't the "heartbreaker" she thinks he is and that he really does want to settle down. However, it isn't quite as easy as he thinks it going to be, because Lucki is stubborn and isn't having her heart broken.
