Mila Bianchi has always played it safe…
After her father betrayed her mother with her brother’s wife, Mila decided to stick with boys and men who could never break her heart. She saw what being destroyed by the ones you loved could do, and it was never going to happen to her.
After the death of her father, her brother Nico thought it would be good for her to come to America and start over. At her welcome to America party, she meets Brian, who she thinks is safe. Spending time together, it doesn’t take long for those feelings to grow, but she’s got a secret, one that keeps her from thinking she’s ever going to find happiness.
Brian Burns had a rough start in life…
Orphaned at age six, he grew up in the system until he turned eleven and met the people who would become his parents. Now an adult, Brian wants to help other vulnerable children, so he’s devoted his life to being a social worker and helping them find their temporary or permanent homes.
The moment he laid eyes on Mila, he knew there was something there, but she pulled the friend card with him. He bided his time, but whenever they seem to get closer, something would hold her back.
Can Mila open her heart enough to share a painful secret with him?
Or will they both walk away damaged and heartbroken?
“The Heartbreaker series is one of my favorites out there. Each book is sweet, sexy, passionate, romantic, intense, and gives each couple a fresh start and second chance at love. And Mila... well this became my new top favorite. #TeamBrian” ~Brianna at Renee Entress’s Blog
“THIS IS SUCH A HEARTWARMING STORY!!! Love At First Site!! Filled with Sighs and Cries!!” ~Reviews From The Heart
4.5 stars for the third book in the Heartbreaker series featuring Nick's little sister Mila. While this book does have another character's sibling in it, you can read and enjoy this as a stand-alone but it is a great series so I highly recommend the first two as well as this one. This book is so not what I have read lately and I think that is why I enjoyed the story so much. While both characters have overcome difficult situations it's how they grow overall that made this book such a great read.
Mila Bianchi is Nick's little sister and after their father's death it is decided she should move to St. Louis from Italy for a fresh start after everything that happened with her father and some other unfortunate things. Mila is a artist and her paintings are almost as beautiful as she is. This beautiful italian girl with dark hair and the most beautiful blue eyes has the confidence to find love but in no way will she trust in it. Mila chooses men who are "safe"- they will never hurt her or betray her but the night she met Brian something changed for her...
Brian Burns is a social worker and fights for kids in the system who have no one. Brian has worked with Jill for a while and helped with her recent caseload while they were in Italy. So when he received an invitation to Jill's sister-in-law's "welcome to America" party he decided to go. Not in a million years did he expect to meet Jill's sister-in-law - Mila and be instantly captivated by this beautiful women. Then to have that attraction reciprocated in spades was so disconcerting Brian still had trouble believing that she wanted to come home with him. Brian knows he isn't ugly and takes care of his body with regular exercise and martial arts but has lived most of his life in the friend-zone with women. So now at thirty-two years old Brian wakes up after his first one-night stand and can't seem to get the beautiful Mila out of his head...
Another great book in this series that gives me all the feels. I loved that Brian was the opposite of alpha and still had such a great presence in this book. He was NOT a doormat and still relayed his feelings beautifully. Love this series and can't wait for the next book :)

When the voices in her head give it a rest, she can always be found with her e-reader in her hand. Some of her favorites include, Shayla Black, Jaci Burton, Madeline Sheehan and Jamie Mcguire. Evan finds a lot of her inspiration in music, so if you see her wearing her headphones you know she means business and is in the zone.
