I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I can honestly say that as soon as I read the synopsis I was intrigued. I wanted to be in the know and jumped on it! Here is the synopsis and what made me curious:
When Marie finally wrote back to Andrew, he truly learned how words can seduce, corrupt and inflame. The stories Marie and Andrew now make up, trading e-mails, consume them. They begin a passionate affair, and their deepening obsession with each other penetrates their writing. Then the stories take over and change everything. Oh, and the bit with the shoe is freaking wild. Fun, well-told, intelligent and absorbing, Heart-Break-Proof is about words that bind tighter than any rope. (Actually, there are ropes in this book too. But mainly words). So, be careful what you read.
Marie and Andrew briefly met a party and she caught his eye. However, she saw that he was already chatting someone up and went on her way. What she didn’t expect was to receive a phone call the next day. They don’t get together until weeks later and that doesn’t go so well. Nor does the next but, it’s the emails that get the ball rolling, so to speak. Starting with easy banter quickly turns into something more.
They each take turns writing a story. Not just any story, more like a fantasy. Professor and student… I have to tell you, the story within the story sucked me in completely! There were several times that I forgot I was reading what Andrew and Marie were writing, I was swept into their fantasy. There was humor, frustration, hurt and love. And I found myself getting worried about what was going to happen when the other shoe dropped.
There was a lot packed into the story and my heart was broken. Now I have to wait for the next installment, to see what’s going to happen to Andrew and Marie!! I enjoyed their story but my only complaint is the price compared to the amount of pages. I give Heart Break Proof 4.5 out of 5 stars!
