When Rachel Thomas meets Mason Conner, it seems she has found a man who is everything she’s ever wanted. After years of the single girl life in New York City, she’s due for some luck in the romance department. But with her less than stellar track record, Rachel can’t seem to let go of her past failures to fall too hard.
That is until Mason’s ex-fiancé reappears, determined to steal him back. With more than winning Mr. Perfect’s heart on the line, is Rachel finally ready to give her heart a break?
My Book Review:
In her debut novel, Give Your Heart A Break, author Helen Peterson weaves a lighthearted tale about the trials and tribulations of romantic relationships and friendship. This entertaining story follows the year long dating journey of New York City advertising executive Rachel Thomas.
Told in the first person narrative, Rachel takes the reader along on her dating journey to find Mr. Right. With a terrible track record of ex-boyfriends who all cheated on her and found their "right one" after breaking up with her, Rachel is tired of trying and getting her heart broken .... that is until she meets sexy attorney Mason Conner at Kiss Crush, a local NYC nightclub. With best friends Kat, Monica, and James in her corner, can Rachel let down her walls long enough to give her heart a break?
Give Your Heart A Break was such a fun chick lit story to read! I really enjoyed the mixture or humor, drama, friendship, and romance that intertwined within the storyline. Author Helen Peterson easily draws the reader into Rachel's story, you can't help but feel for Rachel as her dating trials and tribulations take her on a bumpy year long journey to find romance, and a chance to make the choice to not give up on love.
Not only does the reader get to follow Rachel and Mason on their romantic journey with its drama, obstacles, and bumps along the way (like Mason's crazy stalker ex-girlfriend), they also get to follow the lives of Rachel's best friends Kat, Monica, and James. I really enjoyed the friendship that these besties shared, with all the personal dramas and ups and downs in their lives, they always had each other's back and showed what true friendship is really all about.
With a realistic cast of characters; humorous dialogue; dramatic interactions; and a storyline that had enough interesting twist and turns that made it just plain fun to read; Give Your Heart A Break is a thoroughly entertaining chick lit story about the trials and tribulations and misadventures in life and love that will tickle your funny bone and leave a smile on your face!
