Love and the right timing were two things I didn’t believe in.

Love is about walking to the edge of the cliff and taking the leap together.
Timing was never on our side.
My first mistake was hooking up with my best friend.
My second came years later, when we met again, and I fell for her.
My third was letting her go, because I had to. Because a love like this wasn’t built to withstand the winds coming in our direction.

Love and timing.
I didn’t believe in either.

Then there was you . . .

4.5 / 5

My Review:

The last thing Camila expects to find when she goes up against the Belmonte conglomerate is Warren Silva, he of the ripped body and mesmerizing eyes. That he is one of the most popular European football players matters not one bit to Camila. She’s just instantly, overwhelmingly, frighteningly attracted to him.

As Warren is equally, perhaps even more intensely, attracted to her.

He’s based in Manchester, England, though, and Camila has this thing about guarding her heart, so she gives him a wide path.

Silly girl. As if that’s going to stop War.

One of the things I liked most about this book – and I liked a LOT of things about The Player – is the way Claire Contreras crafted the romance between War and Camila. He is the pursuer, and it’s great fun when Contreras takes you into his head and lets you see how deeply he wants Camila. You know, perhaps before Camila does, that Warren’s interest in her is not superficial; it does not come from a place of needing to win her like a trophy. He sees something in her that he reacts to on a visceral, almost feral level. And you want him to convince her because he’s so freaking endearing.

Camila is, too. Watching her try to avoid War is adorably funny because she really does think she can withstand him. You feel protective of her, though; Camila may have experience when it comes to real-world heartache, but when it comes to romance, she is largely innocent. Fortunately, she has an almost innate sense of who’s trying to hurt her and who isn’t.

If only she trusted that instinct more.

I enjoyed this book so freaking much. I love the way Contreras builds the romantic tension between War and Camila, and I love how she develops their conflict. I love how she lets us get to know her characters, sometimes understanding them better through their friends and families.

And I also love the way Contreras writes the sexy times. Strap on your vibrators, girls, because Warren Silva’s physical prowess isn’t relegated solely to the football pitch. Oh, no. OH, NO. He can rock that headboard right through to three states over, and Camila (and you) will love every minute of it. I’ve always enjoyed soccer, but now I feel a compulsion to have a favorite team and, uh, a favorite player.

Blurb:

I’m naturally gifted on the field and between the sheets. With flashy cars and enough media attention to put the Royal Family to shame, I’m the definition of Most Eligible Bachelor.

Every man wants to be me and every woman wants to tame me. Until Camila.

The moment I lay eyes on her, I know I have to have her.

She wants to keep me at arm’s length.

I want her naked in my bed.

She thinks our worlds are too different.

All I want her to think about is screaming my name.

She says I’m bad news.

I have three weeks to prove her wrong.

About the Author:

Claire doesn’t like to talk about herself. Because of this, she asked a friend of hers to write her bio. This is what she got:

Claire is caring, smart, witty, and funny as heck. Despite being a New York Times Best Selling Author of a popular contemporary romance series, Claire doesn’t read many romance novels. However, when she sits down to write, those are the ones that pour from her fingers. Much to her displeasure, we like to say she’s a romantic at heart.

She is a breast cancer survivor who lives in Miami with her good looking husband, two adorable boys, three bulldogs, and two stray cats that she refuses to admit are hers (even though they live on her porch and she continues to feed them). When she’s not writing, she’s always lost in a book (the more suspenseful, the better).

ELASTIC HEARTS (Hearts #3)

My Review:

Victor Reuben.

Learn that name, faithful readers. Learn it, know it, and needlepoint it on a pillow. Get it on a shirt, even.

Victor Reuben is one delectable, sensational, and utterly magnetic Hot Hero, and he will enslave you.

Victor is one of those guys who is far more broken than he realizes. He’s never been married – never come close – despite a fairly happy childhood family life. He’s close with his younger sister, he’s a successful divorce lawyer  – in Los Angeles! where divorce is a popular commodity! – and he is gorgeous. He also knows his way around a woman’s lady parts. Yet Victor has never been married, never really even had a relationship of any substance.

Perhaps this is because he’s still hung up on Nicole Alessi? Don’t expect Victor to admit to that.

Their “relationship” consisted of a handful of torturously hot sexual encounters that ended when Victor chose career over the possibility of an emotional connection. Nicole presented a brave face – Victor did, too, really – and, six weeks later, married a popular Hollywood star. And now, after five years only sporadically seeing her, Victor has been picked by Nicole’s father to handle her divorce.

Hearts are tricky things. Some are soft and malleable, others are hard and impenetrable. Victor’s heart is elastic. It stretches and contracts, although the latter occurs more frequently. He has his friends and his family, and he has his job. Victor loves his job. He loves the success and the challenge. For his job, Victor’s heart knows only expansion.

Nicole’s renewed presence demands attention from Victor’s heart, and he fights it. His heart wants to swell and enlarge. It wants to encompass her. But Victor is afraid. Elasticity makes him vulnerable. Contraction keeps him safe and protected, but expansion. Expansion is a risk. What if his heart broadens and enlarges but is broken nonetheless? What if his heart can only expand for one thing?

Nicole, too, has an elastic heart. Hers operates conversely: Nicole’s heart is in an almost constant state of inflation. She has known the pain Victor fears, and although she approaches with caution, she embraces elasticity. She embraces Victor and all of his brokenness.

I loved this book. LOVED. IT. I loved Victor, and I loved Nicole, and I loved their friends. It’s the third in Claire Contreras’s Hearts series, but it’s a standalone. You don’t need to have read the first two to understand this one, although characters from those books make an appearance here. The romance feels real and fresh, and Victor and Nicole are worth your time and attention. It’s just such a well written story.

While this is a Hot Romance Novel with a Hot Hero (let me just say that Claire Contreras’s sexy times scenes will leave your thighs numb from all the squeezing), it’s also a story about family in all its shapes: fathers, daughters, brothers, sisters, friends, bosses, husbands, wives. Contreras recognizes that each of us has an elastic heart, even if they expand and contract for different reasons.

Blurb:

Victor Reuben.
Most sought out divorce attorney in LA.

Nicole Alessi.
Soon to be ex-wife of Hollywood’s biggest star, Victor’s latest client and his boss’s daughter.

In such a high profile divorce, they can’t afford any extra drama. Luckily, neither one of them has anything to hide.
Unless you count the mind blowing sex they had…
Once…
Twice…
Three times all those years ago.

As long as they leave the past where it belongs, they’ll be fine. But with her wearing those tight dresses and him giving her those heated glances, keeping their hands to themselves is proving to be more difficult than either one of them realized.

It won’t be long before the paparazzi start to smell smoke, and where there’s smoke…

 

About the Author:

I enjoy writing anything from children’s stories to erotic suspense, but my most notable work is contemporary romance. When I’m not writing, I’m reading and dreaming about places I want to visit.
