Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Adult Fiction, Chick Lit


Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Length: 320 Pages

This book was so funny and creative, that I read it in one sitting. I was so invested in what the characters were thinking and feeling, I wanted to know everything! Brinkley is so understandable in so many ways, such as mother's approval, lusting for someone you probably shouldn't, and everyday worries. I loved the Mark and Brinkley duo throughout the book, it was so well written and exciting. I fell in love with both of them instantly. Heartbreak for Hire can be read anytime of the year, but I really felt it got me in the mood for summer.


To everyone in the academic world she left behind, she lost it all when she dropped out of grad school. Once a rising star following in her mother’s footsteps, she’s now an administrative assistant at an insurance agency—or so they think. In reality, Brinkley works at Heartbreak for Hire, a secret service that specializes in revenge for jilted lovers, frenemies, and long-suffering coworkers with a little cash to spare and a man who needs to be taken down a notch. It might not be as prestigious as academia, but it helps Brinkley save for her dream of opening an art gallery and lets her exorcise a few demons, all while helping to empower women. But when her boss announces she’s hiring male heartbreakers for the first time, Brinkley’s no longer so sure she’s doing the right thing—especially when her new coworker turns out to be a target she was paid to take down. Though Mark spends his days struggling up the academic ladder, he seems to be the opposite of a backstabbing adjunct: a nerd at heart in criminally sexy sweater vests who’s attentive both in and out of the bedroom. But as Brinkley finds it increasingly more difficult to focus on anything but Mark, she soon realizes that like herself, people aren’t always who they appear to be.
