Ally Griffin is horrified to learn her new landlord is none other than the infuriating playboy Nate Hardy—the man whose wiles she just knows got her jilted at the altar six years ago. Add to it that her ex-fiancé Seth is showing up in her hometown of Burronga, Australia, to marry his beautiful new bride…for real this time. But the kicker? Everybody’s treating Ally as though she’s still heartbroken. She’s just fine, thank you very much, but could The Jilter have the decency not to hire her sister as his florist?My impression of Real Men Don't Break Hearts is: really sweet love story. To be honest, based on that gorgeously charming cover, it being an Entangled Bliss book, and the synopsis, I got exactly what I was expecting.
Nate Hardy is tired of his high-flying city career and bachelor lifestyle and is looking for something more real. The last thing he needs is to find himself undeniably attracted to Ally, the woman with whom he never saw eye-to-eye. But is he even capable of what Ally wants and deserves?
As Ally tries to pull her life out of the rut it’s fallen in, she doesn't count on Nate stirring up her emotions. A short-term fling with the resident bad boy is practically irresistible, but only if she can guard her heart…
Ally and Nate were one-time frenemies who happily parted ways six years prior, when Nate delivered the heartbreaking news that to Ally that her fiance (his cousin) was standing her up. On their wedding day. Now, Nate has come back home, determined to lead a quiet, happy life, and to make amends for all the trouble he and his brother caused as kids. When he and Ally unexpectedly become a part of each other's lives again, the sparks fly. Instant chemistry!
Real Men Don't Break Hearts is a story with more sweet than steam.I must say, once again, that Entangled Bliss books would make the most adorable Lifetime or Hallmark movies. There's an inherent charm in all of the books, one that makes me want to curl up and devour in one sitting. .
Real Men Don't Break Hearts is a story of letting go of the past, and finding love where you least expect it.
Ally sputtered. "But I've been on dates! And--and what about Jackson? Doesn't he count?"
"Jackson ended up stalking you. No, weirdos don't count." ~16%
A group of boys ran past, balloons clutched in their hands. One of them let go of his, and Ally watched the bright red balloon sail off into the sky. That was how she felt: light, effervescent, released.
But when she glanced back at Nate, it felt as if he were tugging on her string. She wasn't floating free anymore; he was pulling her back toward him. When she looked at him, everything else faded, and all she could focus on was him. ~47%
