Solitary cowboy, Trip Turner walked out on the love of his life twelve years ago, breaking her heart and landing in juvenile detention. Now’s he back in Saddle Creek, Montana, at the dude ranch for wayward teens, where his mentor, John Stone, taught him the rules of how to become a man. But a tragedy has reminded Trip that he failed to follow one of those rules. And it could have been the most important one of all.

Bre Wilson had moved on with her life—she has a successful veterinary practice, and she’s put all thoughts of Trip Turner, the boy she’d planned to spend the rest of her life with, behind her. Or so she thought. Because he’s back, and no longer a boy. Now he’s a hot-as-hell man, and she has to spend the next two weeks working by his side without either kissing him or killing him.

Trip let Bre go once, he won’t do it again. He has a second chance to fix the mistakes he made all of those years ago, and this time he’s following the rules. He just needs to figure out how to unbreak her heart.

This book includes mature subject matter that may not be appropriate for readers under the age of 18.

How To Unbreak A Heart by Jennie Marts

The Verdict:  I didn’t even realize the book was out until I was searching Amazon for something else, but as soon as I saw the author’s name on it, I grabbed it.

Trip and Bre’s relationship when they were young burned hot and fast, ending suddenly when Trip got into trouble and was sent away.  Unexpectedly face-to-face again, Trip’s still keeping the secret that took him away from Bre all those years ago, but he’s not willing to let her slip from his grasp this time.  Bre’s heart aches the second she see’s Trip again, even after all these years.  They’ve grown up, sure, but that just means they’re in control of their own fates now, and as much as he still affects her, she’s angry and hurt and all those things her teenage heart suffered.

This one’s just a short novella, so there’s not a lot of time for deep character development or twisting plot, but Marts does an awesome job dropping us right inside the characters’ hearts and minds, and I felt every bit of Bre’s conflicted feelings.  Trip’s understanding of the wayward teenage boy working at the ranch gave insight into his true character, and when the true reason for his split from Bre when they were teens finally came to light, it just went to show what an amazing man he was.  For such a short story, this one has it all — the chemistry, the bittersweet reunion, the second chance they finally got… I loved every second of it!
