Mistakes? She’s made a few…

Dropped out of high school? Check. Ran away with loser boyfriend at age sixteen? Check. Fell for every line from every guy? Sadly, check. But now, Tess Paplion has started over. Juggling multiple part-time jobs while finishing her college degree, she’s not letting anything get in her way. Especially not a sexy angel investor with “one-night disaster” written all over him.

Mason Coleman just inherited a 200-pound invalid Mastiff—and an intriguing, unusual, and thoroughly infuriating dog nanny who turns his life upside down the moment she steps through his front door. No matter how she makes him feel Mason doesn’t do commitment—so what happens when he falls for her? And worse, what happens when she wants nothing to do with him?

“Inara Scott created characters and situations that felt unique and real. I got to know these people. I got to know them in their good and bad moments.

This is one of those impulse buy books. It was only 99 cents AND there was a dog on the cover! It was meant to be.

Normally these turn out to be very good, but this one was a diamond in the rough! This book had a lot of the elements I like: seeing things from the male's POV, humor, a sassy woman who ...more

I loved the banter between Tess and Mason! Their conversations were actually my favorite bits of the entire story. Then there’s Wick, Mason’s sister’s drooling mastiff, who was rather amusing with his lazy-bones way. And Astro, Tess’s Maltese...she’d have fit perfectly with the cast from The Secret ...more

There's plenty of humor, sizzle, tenderness, and emotion to find in this story. The chemistry between Tess and Mason is great and the banter is so much fun. But I also enjoyed the tenderness and caring that develops. Scott allows us to really get to know these two characters by slowly growing their ...more

Rating: 4/5 stars

Not many love stories start with a 200 pound Mastiff with a bum leg 😊 Mason Coleman doesn’t actually own the lazy beast he currently has possession of, but he is going to care for him until his sister can reclaim h ...more

By Stephanie February 04, 2019

Any story with a giant dog in it already has a leg up on the competition in my book! In this book, it went way beyond a meet-cute between the characters with their silly animals. This was a very emotional book - where both Tess and Mason had a lot of growing to do before they could be together.

This is my first book by Inara Scott. It will most certainly not be my last. I loved “Heartbreaker”! The book is sweet, sexy and a definite page turner. I loved the main characters, Tess and Mason.

This is a contemporary romance.  It’s a fun funny entertaining read.   Contemporary romance is one of my favorite genres because I can see the scene easier than if I was reading regency or Scottish highlander books.

About the author

Inara Scott

Inara wrote her first book when she was fifteen--a romance called "A Wild and Stormy Passion" that featured swordplay, a pirate heroine, and plenty of naughty bits (all of which came entirely from her imagination). Since then, she's written romances of the category, contemporary, and fantasy varieties. Her books are sinfully sensual and deeply emotional. Inara reserve the right to enjoy country music, puppies, and love-at-first sight. When she's not writing, she enjoys to spending time wandering around in the woods and has been known to occasionally dress up her little white dog in princess costumes.
