ARC Review ~ Hard to Break (Alpha's Heart, #2) by Bella Jewel

Hard to Break (Alpha's Heart, #2)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: October 13th 2015

Publisher: St Martin's

Quinn has spent her whole life working in her dad's garage, leaving her more comfortable with a carburetor than a curling iron. Her world is turned upside down when her beloved garage is bought by none other than world famous, sexy as sin, custom car builder, Tazen Watts. He's the one man she can't stand...even though he makes her hotter than a high performance engine in top gear.

Tazen has no use for Quinn, at least not professionally, and he's making sure she knows it. But there's a spark between them that she's finding hard to ignore. She's determined to prove her talent is as impressive as her sassy mouth. When she finds out Tazen is hiding a secret that could bring down his career and everyone involved in it, she wonders: is falling for him is going to be work the risk?

**Hard To Break is a full-length standalone romance with a HEA**

My Opinion

I couldn't wait to start reading this and I think I loved it more than the first.

Hard To Break was a book that was over much too quickly. I seriously don't know where my time went reading it. One minute I was on the first page and the next I was at 60% and then nearing the end. It moved at a fast pace and I had trouble putting it down. The plot was simple, yet interesting, and I didn't want it to end.

I loved Quinn's personality. She was a fighter and her snarky comments and the way she riled Tazen made me smile on more than one occasion. I loved how they pushed each other, but also how they realised when they'd taken things too far.

I will admit that I didn't really feel any sexual tension between them at the start. I knew they were heading that way so it wasn't a surprise when things progressed with their relationship. However, I did want a little more build up that wasn't just verbal sparring. I also hated Tazen at the start, which I'm sure was the author's intention. He did win me over though.

The only slight negative is I didn't feel the ending came to a natural conclusion. I would have liked maybe one or two more chapters before the epilogue to round it off fully. That's my only criticism though. It does tie everything up, I just wasn't satisfied.

Overall, another great read. I enjoyed it even more than the first and would definitely recommend. The conversations the characters have will bring a smile to your face.
