Book Review – How to Handle a Heartbreaker by Marie Harte (The McCauley’s #2)

It’s lust-at-first-sight when Brody Singer first sees Abby Dunn. Abby looks a lot like a woman he once knew, one who died years ago. But Abby’s definitely different—shyer but sexier.

Abby’s still trying to put her last disastrous relationship behind her and overcome the flaws her ex wouldn’t let her forget. 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.

Only Abby can write her own ending—will she choose her own happily-ever-after, or stay safe in her shell?

4 out of 5 stars

Book 2 in the McCauley series was much better than the first.  Why?  Abby.  Abby was so much more likable than Maddie.  That, and the writing was better.
The end of book 1 lead us to the conclusion that the second book would be about Brody and Abby.  Brody is “the blond McCauley”.  Part of the family, but not by blood.  I liked Brody’s backstory.  It was believable and realistic.  And sad.  Abby has issues of her own – she was in a relationship with a man who made her feel cheap and dirty because of her sexual preferences.  So two broken people come together to find love.
There is a backstory in this book about the McCauley’s parents, Bitsy and James.  I’m curious to know how that turns out.  But this book was much better than the first, and I’m excited to read Cam and Vanessa’s story.
