Heartache by Danielle Allen- Blog Tour

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.

My Review: 

Heartache (Heartache Volume 1)

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Roman is a sexy artist who is finally finding some real success in his work. He has a couple friends, but isn't really close with anyone, and is never going to engage in a sexual relationship with a woman who wants a relationship outside the bedroom. His life takes a turn when a cryptic message is left on his mirror and he finds himself the focus of a secret admirer who may also be a stalker. Around this time he also starts to see his best friend Bianca as something more than a friend, which causes him to panic and fear that he will need to push her out of his life.

Roman was a tough character. He was sexy, but very frustrating, and at times I just wanted to shout at him to stop acting stupid. I loved Bianca and it was tough to see her go through so many challenges just to be a good friend to Roman. This book has a lot of emotional highs and lows, but through everything I did care about what happened to these characters. The element of mystery in trying to determine who was sending the messages to Roman kept things interesting as well. I did end up guessing who the person was, but only right before that person was revealed in the story. I enjoyed this book and would read more by this author in the future.

I am a married event planner and life coach.  My awesome friends and family and my amazing husband make my life sweet.  I love to have fun and enjoy the life I’ve been blessed with.  I love shopping and football with equal fervor.  I’m an amateur movie critic (i.e. my husband and I watch and critique a lot of movies for fun). I love to read and I enjoy sharing my love of books with anyone who will listen. I love music. A good lyric with a good melody can paint a vivid picture and invoke such a range of emotions. I have a soft spot for most mediums of creative, artistic expression.

With degrees in psychology, human services, and marriage and family counseling, I have a unique perspective on life, love and the pursuit of happiness.   As an author, I combine an active imagination and life experiences to create stories that are easily relatable and intentionally intriguing.  I want to offer you a peek into someone else’s life and for you to get lost in their story, their trials, their triumphs.  My ultimate goal is to create a character or a story that stays with you long after you’ve put the book down.

In a nutshell, I am a Romance Novelist, Life Coach, Event Planner, Teacher, Karaoke Singer, and Professional Hugger.
