It's lust at first sight when Brody Singer first lays eyes on Abby Dunn. The dark-haired beauty looks a lot like a woman he once knew, who died years ago. At first Brody fears his attraction is a holdover from that secret crush, but Abby's definitely different. She's a lot shyer, a lot sexier, and absolutely mesmerizing.
But Abby isn't having any of it. She's still trying to put her last disastrous relationship behind her and overcome the flaws her ex wouldn't let her forget. Plus, as a romance writer, Abby knows a heartbreaker when she sees one. But somehow Brody isn't getting the hint. It doesn't help that when writing her steamy novels, she keeps casting Brody as the hero - especially since Brody is more than happy to serve as her muse. But when he becomes more than that, will Abby choose happily ever after for herself?
A wonderful blend of humor and heat, How to Handle a Heartbreaker is a refreshing, sexy contemporary romance, the second in The McCauley Brothers series.

The Extra Brother
I loved Brody and Abby's story. They were so funny. Abby's relationship with her sisters was crazy hilarious. We also finally get to find out how Brody became a McCauley Brother, tough his name is Singer.
One of the things I like about this series and what the author has done, is that you get moments from the other characters in each book. You hear from their perspective what's happening. In this case, it means you have to read each book in order. But I love that about this.
Looking forward to Cameron and Vanessa's story next. I'm also dying to find out more about The Donnigans' as well as the crew at Del's shop.

Lots More Feels Than The Last!
HEA with a continuing story line.
I recommend reading these in order, because if you listen to one out of order, you will want to go back and start from the beginning anyway. There are 4 brothers, 3 neighbors, and a bonus heroine with tattoos. They are all so intertwined that its practically impossible to separate them.
Steam factor on this one is HOT, including lots of dirty talk and sexting! And despite efforts to not curse in front of the kid, there is still lots of cursing. 🤷
This is #2 in the series, and we finally get our introduction to the mystery heroine, Del. Now that everyone is present, we get to dive in to Flynn’s “honorary” twin, Brody!
There are lots of feels in this one for those that crave it. If you started with book #1 then you should be expecting it, this is Brody’s story. Even though they practically raised him, he is not a McCauley by blood. I knew there was an unhappy story in his past coming and boy did it hit me right there.
And if that’s not enough for you, they threw in some bonus feels for good measure!
The Hero and Heroine of this story, Brody (Singer) McCauley and Abby Dunn met in book one and have both had an interest in the other since the beginning . Abby likes to ease drop on the boys while they play poker for her “research“ and Brody likes to make sure the window is open while they play so he can drop hints to the ears he knows are listening. These 2 have a lot more in common than they realize. They both hide the truth of who they truly are, fearing the judgment and shame. I have to stop there and let the details of it unfold for you as intended. ….Sorry.
Now just because there are more heart strings pulled than normal doesn’t mean it skimped on the heat. No sir! It was super steamy, as Abby needed to do a lot of “research“😉, and Brody was more than happy to work with her on that project.
Throughout the book, it is hinted that all is not harmonious in the McCauley family. I was hoping it was just discontent over an empty nest, but sadly I don’t think that is going to be the case. ☹ The epilogue leads one to believe we will get the answers in the next book. We also get a hint of what’s to come with Vanessa and Cameron.
➖ Mutt & Colin Still Steal The Show! ➖
Marie Harte’s characters still entertain. She could of eased up on the feels. I still want to listen to the rest of the series.
Anne Gray’s voice was pleasant and flowed well. Helps to have the ebook if you are struggling with “who’s talking” in the larger scenes. You can find it through your local library for free.
The recording was exactly as it should be. Pacing/timing was accurate. No background noises. Sound levels were correct with no need for constant volume changes.
The books in this series just get better and better. A loveable cast of characters. A sweet romance. Really hot sexy scenes. Great voice acting.
