The Edge of Beauty is certainly looking more and more like a book review website at the moment. But I have just read MJ Summer's first book in the Full Hearts Series, Break in Two, and fell in love with it so much that I had to tell you about it.
This has to be one of the best romance books that I've read. I would go as far to say that this novel rivals the likes of Nicholas Sparks books and the best of the best in this genre. I couldn't get enough of all of the characters and expect you will feel the same after reading this.
Claire has just had her heart broken by her idiot ex, Antonio. Fleeing their house after he never came home lead Claire to Colorado and her new job at a ranch there as head chef.
Little did Claire know that one of the perks of the job was an insanely hot boss. When Claire is working and living in the same place, she knows how dangerous it can be to add play into the equation as well. But there's something about Cole that draws her in - she just can't keep away.
When Cole reveals he feels the same, things get heated very quickly. Not knowing each other for very long, they suddenly get in very deep and have to deal with some real life-changers. Will their love last or will it be gone as quick as it came?
Cole was such a compelling character, as was Claire. They both share an incredible bond in the book which is emphasised by MJ's fantastic use of descriptive language. You are made to feel like you're part of their lives and living every day with them - not knowing what will happen next just like they don't. I definitely felt like the book had enough twists and turns to always keep you on your toes and wondering what would happen next, just like a good Nicholas Sparks book would have.
The magic of MJ's writing is really in her style. It flows so incredibly well, which makes reading the book even more enjoyable than it already was. She certainly gave the impossible-to-put-down factor with this book. I can't even remember the last time I finished a book and sincerely wanted there to be a second novel straight away.
Unfortunately with the way this book ended, there wasn't really a line up for a sequel Claire and Cole. However, another character called Luc has been carried on to create the second book in the Full Hearts Series called Breaking Love. I am currently reading that one and will review it very soon. But let's be honest, if it's anything near as good as Break in Two I am going to be singing MJ Summer's praises from the rooftop. I'm addicted to her books and can't wait to get going on the rest of this series.
