Heartbreaker (Filthy Dirty Love #1) by Stacey Kennedy
Release Date: January 31, 2017
Handcuffs aren’t just part of their job in this sizzling new standalone novel by USA Today bestselling author, Stacey Kennedy.
Veteran cop, Maddox Hunt, is all about the job. Sure, there are women—lots of women, truth be told—but there’s no one special. Until a one-night stand from his past, rookie Joss O’Neil is assigned to his division. Suddenly, all he can think about is her. The scent of her. The taste of her.
Fresh out of field training, Joss has thrown herself into her job, determined to kick-start her career. And while police work has its thrills, her gorgeous new boss is what really gets her pulse pounding. Too bad he’s nothing but a distraction. Especially since he’s as devastatingly handsome as she remembers, and his sexy smile arrests her heart.
Now that Joss is back in Maddox’s life, he has a plan: satisfy her fantasies and fulfill his every dark desire. Nothing is off limits. Her pleasure is the endgame . . . but even the best-laid plans have a way of falling apart. Despite his best attempts to keep his distance and have things remain only about the pleasure, Maddox soon finds himself breaking the only law he’s set for himself. Don’t fall in love.

Sizzling hot, sweet and sexy! This story was excellent!
I had so much fun reading this! The story starts off epically hot and I was completely pulled in. I loved Maddox and his alpha kinky ways! He had some seriously swoon worthy moments too. The man made me melt! Joss was fantastic because she was just so open, accepting, and understanding. She just seemed so strong to me and I loved the confidence she had. They had seriously fantastic chemistry. There was this heat between the two of them that I swear I could feel. I liked the way the kink was introduced and how that worked with their relationship, it was hot and sweet all rolled into one. I loved watching their relationship grow and develop. Yes, it was super hot and there were lots of sexy times but there was a sweetness to them, a vulnerability, as they both shared more and more of themselves. I thought it rounded everything out perfectly.
They do have some obstacles against them so there was a nice amount of conflict introduced but nothing to taxing. Their friends added a nice bit of entertainment that had me smiling, it added a good bit of lightness. I'd love to know more about Maddox friend Grey and I hope he gets his own story.
This was pure entertainment. Really enjoyable and fun, incredibly off the charts panty melting hot, with a really sweet romance happening. There was a nice bit of emotion mixed in too. I loved Maddox opening up and watching some of his walls come down, I loved all the emotion behind it. A man letting his guard down and opening up always makes my heart burst.
I thought the writing was great and there was really good character development, it was all laid out really well. I liked the storyline, there was a great pace, and I liked the secondary players involved. It wrapped up with an excellent ending and really sweet epilogue. I couldn't get enough. Awesome read filled with off the charts hotness (seriously!) and wonderful characters.
If you've not read this author before, this would be an excellent one to start with. It’s my new favorite Stacey Kennedy book to date!
