Roman Harper is known for being three things:
A talented artist…
A charismatic loner…
And most notably, an unintentional heartbreaker.
Even though he doesn’t mean for women to fall in love with him, Roman Harper has left a string of broken hearts in his wake. But after a lie tore his world apart eight years ago, Roman doesn’t let anyone get too close to him. Sex is sex and love is…completely out of the question.
Using the past as motivation, Roman pours his heart out onto his canvas. His heartache inspires some of his best work. And at twenty-eight years old, his art is finally getting the recognition that he’s always desired. But when Roman wakes up on the morning after his successful event with no recollection of who left the cryptic message on his bathroom mirror, everything changes.
Let me start by saying I LOVED Roman. He is simply amazing. There are times when you want to grab him and shake him and tell him to man up, and then hug him afterwards because he is just so sweet. Roman is talented, and sexy, and sweet, as I mentioned. This causes women to fall all over themselves over him, which is completely understandable. He always lets them off easy, and is polite as possible, and he thinks that they understand, until he is being stalked.
Danielle Allen does an amazing job at keeping you guessing who the stalker may be. There is a short list of potentials, and all of them seem to be perfect candidates. Roman and his friends, particularly Bianca, are trying to figure out who this woman might be. Figuring out the stalker isn’t the only suspense in the book.
We learn early on that Roman has trust issues and doesn’t let a lot of people get close to him because of some issues in his past. When the secrets from his past are revealed, his lack of trust is understandable. He needs to heal, and the one person who may be able to help him with that is right by his side, but the pain and guilt may be to much for him to let her in.
Heartache is a story of friendship, love, and healing. Definitely recommend. 4 stars.
