Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Rules of Heartbreak, by Brittany Taylor

Release Date: December 2

I never used to live my life by rules.
At least not until my fiancé betrayed me, turning my entire world upside down.
Unsure of how to move on, my luck seemed to suddenly change. My estranged mother’s last gift to me before she died landed on my doorstep, giving me the opportunity to start my life over.
I snatched up the chance to leave my life behind in Minnesota, opening my arms up to the hot, sunny weather of Texas.
It was easy to start over in unfamiliar territory, my unofficial rules of heartbreak worn on my chest like a badge of honor.
But along with the house my mother left came a new neighbor. An obnoxious neighbor with dangerous glaring eyes and a set of abs that should be considered illegal. He was mysterious and full of secrets, a story hidden behind his hard exterior.
Before I knew it, Dallas Beckett was about to break all my rules.
I just didn’t realize he had his own set, and I was about to put every one of them to the test.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

The Rules of Heartbreak is the second book I’ve read by Brittany Taylor — and it was as beautifully full of angst as Paper Hearts! At first meeting, Sloan and Dallas can’t stand one another. But their hate-to-love relationship turns into a no-strings fling since they have both been burned by past relationships and neither is looking for a commitment. But as these two spend more and more time together, feelings get involved, and the carefully-constructed rules they both put in place to protect their hearts seem to matter less and less.

This story is messy and heartbreaking, and it was so, so good. Sloan and Dallas had wonderful banter and sizzling chemistry. Underneath that gruff and grumpy exterior was a guy so broken by the secrets he’s keeping but still had so much love to give. There is a wild twist to this story that just amplified all the angst. Both Sloan and Dallas had a lot of issues to work through on their own, and I loved the journey that they went on as they fought their way to be together.

The Rules of Heartbreak is a fantastic start to a new series, and I hope that the rest of the books to come are just as good — because this was angsty perfection!

I read an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
