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?

My Opinion

I've enjoyed previous books in this series so I was excited to read Mila and find out her story.

There is a difference with Mila. First of all, it's a female's story. And secondly, we get a guy who isn't a player, but rather a genuinely nice guy who wants commitment. Unlike Nico and Gabe, it's the woman messing things up in this book. I liked the change and Brian was a great character. He was the sweet guy who melts your heart and you root for him to win.

While I liked Mila, I will admit wasn't my favourite in the series. Personally, I felt there was a lot less development and the pacing was much too fast. I didn't feel I got a chance to connect with the characters. I wanted the relationship to be slower and have a build. Things happened very quickly and it made it hard to engage. The timeline bounced around and I didn't feel the chemistry. I also wasn't a fan of the ending. It didn't give me the satisfaction I desired.

Overall, it's not my favourite, but it was still a good read and I'll be looking out for Gaia's story.


“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
A Midwesterner and self-proclaimed nerd, Evan has been an avid reader most of her life, but five years ago got bit by the writing bug, and it quickly became her addiction, passion and therapy. 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.
