Jaded Hearts by Harper Sloan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
After reading Unexpected Fate, I was beyond intrigued to find out where Wrenlee and Chance's story would take them. I've been eagerly awaiting the release of this book for some time now and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. This might be my favorite of Sloan's; I absolutely loved this story and these characters.
Wrenlee Davenport's band, Loaded Replay, is a huge success, but with that comes some unexpected side effects...one of which is a possible stalker. Chance Nash, security specialist at Corps Security, is called in by Wren's bandmates to protect her from any possible threat. When their current record label won't allow personal security, Chance and the guys come up with a plan and quickly he and Wren are in a "fake relationship". As things progress and these two start to become a little less fake, will Chance be able to keep Wren safe and their hearts intact?
Everyone who has read a Harper Sloan novel, knows that she writes one hell of a sexy alpha and Chance most definitely fits that description. He's everything we look for in an irresistible lead - protective, confident, strong, funny, sweet, and so much more. He was the perfect fit for Wren. And what a fabulous character she was. That's another thing Sloan does really well, she doesn't just have these intense guys who take over the story, she also brings us bold heroines who are smart, witty, loyal, and fierce. Together they completely drove this story. Their chemistry, their connection, it sucked me in.
Along with the characters and their relationship, Sloan wove in a bit of danger and mystery. As we focus on the excitement of their budding relationship, we are lulled into a sense of security, almost forgetting that there is a threat out there. I would have liked to have seen a bit more of this aspect to ramp up the suspense but that didn't effect my enjoyment of this book at all. I started reading and didn't stop until I was finished, that's how wrapped up I was.
Sloan surrounds Chance and Wren with fun and intriguing characters. I fell in love, not only with the two MCs, but with the guys of Loaded Replay as well. I'm looking forward to getting to know them all better and seeing where their stories lead.
