This was really sweet and full of passion! I loved the fact that it was a mature 'grown up' story w the main characters being older and having real life issues. It was a predictable storyline, but Mr "Frenchman" Luc Cavalier is the things we grown women dreams are made of :)

5 STARS! Loved it!

Before reading Break In Two, I would have yawned--or maybe rolled my eyes at the idea of a rich, french womanizer as a romantic hero. Add to that his name being Luc Chevalier and he has a ponytail... well, there was no way this guy could be my book boyfriend material. But then something happened. This secondary character started talking and he intrigued me...I needed more Luc and I needed to read his book ASAP. Ta-da! Along comes Breaking Love! Okay, so it wasn't exactly "T

Breaking Love is a heartwarming story with a burning passion that just can’t be denied. It’s the best of both worlds. The plot contains all the tender and compassion of a great love story that still manages to light the pages on fire with its steamy and seductive romance.

Luc was to die for with his marvelous French ways while Megan was the strong single mom, doing what it takes to make it on her own. Wounded by their own life circumstances, they struggle to find happiness when the thought of a r
I really wanted to love this book but I just couldn't. I didn't connect with the story or the characters. While I found Luc overly charming and darling, I just couldn't get into the story the way I would have liked. Having said that, I did like. Luc, the male lead you're meant to fall in love with, was my favorite part of the novel. The female lead was so bland that I have to look up her name, it's Megan. I could finish the book which is a sign that it wasn't absolutely horrific. I give Breaking ...more

4.5 Stars !

Breaking Love was my first book by M.J Summers and I really enjoyed reading it. The narrative style is very pleasant and I loved both characters. They are both lonely and convinced their life is perfect as it is. But the time has come for them to define what they really want and it might not be what they were convinced they needed before meeting each other.

Megan Sullivan is a single mother, raising her son Elliott alone after a bad divorce. She is independent, strong and has long ago

2.75 stars. This one just didn't do it for me. I can't exactly pinpoint it down but I think it was the writing style. It felt too formal and not real. It also had a soap opera taste to it that was too OTT. It was a great story idea though, the implementation just was lacking IMO. ...more
“You know, Megan, sometimes we have to take a chance on something that isn’t logical but feels right.”

Breaking Love was a really lovely and thoughtful book, I liked it so much more than I was expecting. I really enjoyed the way it was written, there was such an easy flow to it for such a meaty book. I hadn’t read the previous book in this series, and even though Luc was apparently introduced in the first one I don’t feel like I was missing out on anything.

Holy Sexy Frenchman!!!!

I first read Break in Two a long while ago and unfortunately for me, I kinda forgot about this awesome series -- I know, right?! what was I thinking!!! Well a couple months ago I was given the opportunity to read Breaking Hearts and fell totally and completely in love with Trey and it reminded me what I was missing!!!! So now I am making my way through the rest of this series and loving every freaking minute of it!!!

Let’s talk about the sexier than sexy, Luc Chevalier for
Sultry Steamy Reading
Hello again, Luc Chevalier. If you read the first book, then you've already met Luc, the sexy Frenchman, business mogul, and complicatedly honest-to-a-fault man that the first book's heroine met on the plane and almost had an affair with. Ever since then, that arrogant character has already intrigued me. That goes without saying that I've looked forward to reading this book.

I liked it that the author was consistent in writing Luc's character. He was still very frank, which gets him into trouble,

I really loved the sound of Breaking Love, and I was particularly excited to read it. I should mention that Breaking In Love is part of a series, but it is perfectly fine to read this one as a standalone, as that is what I did and it was thoroughly enjoyable!

MJ Summers definitely knows how to write a great story! I had never read any of MJ’s books before but I was drawn in straight away by Breaking Love, the storyline is fascinating and addictive in equal measures!

I really liked Megan and Luc –

A MUST READ! This book is AWESOME. You fall in love with Luc in the first few chapters. I love the "grown up" story. This is not your typical virgin meets playboy, this is for the grown ups ladies.
You will love this book even more than Break in Two, believe it.
Thank you MJ Summers for the ARC, I can't wait for the other books to be published.

I want to visit Paris ☺️

Wow! Megan and Luc were everything! I seriously couldn’t get enough of them! I love that they met in Paris. It was so beautiful to see them go through all the ups and downs until they had their happily ever after! The ending was absolutely amazing! 🇫🇷❤️

5 Amazingly Wonderful Stars

This book was given to me for my honest review.

A baking of an apple pie from the time we peel and slice the apples to the adding of the flour, cinnamon with a touch of sugar, the arranging the apples in the perfect crust to slow bake in the oven makes a wonderful and slow combining treat. When it comes out of the oven we are in awe of the first touch of the apples as we consume this amazing treat.

Luc-smart, hunky businessman and French

Looking for a hot, steamy, sexy read for the beach or back porch? How about a swoon-worthy Frenchman who is sexy as all get out, with all those moves in all the right places? What if you could travel to Paris, France to be wined, dined and seduced in one of the most romantic, if not the most romantic city in the world? Could you, when far from home, let all the freedom and passion that is buried deep within you free to be exactly what you wanted to be for one ni

Favorite Quotes:

“She had books, wine, baths and BOB, her battery-operated boyfriend, to keep her company. None of them would ever leave the toilet seat up, forget to call when they were out of town or develop a serious drug problem. She had already gone years without a man, and she preferred to keep it that way.”

Luc Chavalier is a Frenchman, who has very specific rules that he follows in his businesses and personal life. He is very rich and happily unattached. It seems his rules will be tested by a chance meeting with Megan Sullivan, a single American mom visiting her friend in Paris. She seems to live by the same no involvement rules in her personal life after being burne
Luc Chevalier had it all, he was money, women, and his life as a bachelor. Luc never felt like anything was missing, until he met Megan Sullivan. Initially he denies the spark, he acts on it but could it be possibly more than a few days?

Megan learned a long time ago that she would never put her heart out there again. Megan is dedicated to her life as a single mom, but when she finds herself being pursued by Luc she takes a temporary leap of faith. When Luc decides to come after her, Megan is lef

4 sweet read stars!!

I was so happy to have the opportunity to read this book. Why? Because it's NOT new adult. I'm a grown woman for goodness sakes! And I love to read books with characters I can relate to! There are not enough good ones IMO.

Luc and Megan's story was really sweet with quite a bit of angst thrown in (maybe too much at the end) but overall I was glad they got their HEA.

Loved this story of Luc and Megan. Currently sick with a cold so read from my bed and finished it the same day.

Loved Luc and Megan's story. It's heartwarming and exciting at the same time. She definitely needed her happily ever after, after all she'd been through! And there is no better man for her than Luc! ...more

Up to chapter 21 I was more than willing to give this book 5 stars. I was thoroughly enjoying every page of it, thinking to myself "Wow, this book is sooooo much better than the first one! The author definitely did her homework and improved her writing and style since this one is leaps and bounds ahead of the first one!". But then, the next chapters followed and it was so much drama! And totally unnecessary. Luc and Megan's story already had the right amount of conflict with (view spoiler) ...more

"Breaking Love" is the second book in the Full Heart series but I was assured that it can be read as a stand alone novel as well, and it's true. But after reading this hot, steamy story I will be for sure checking the first book as soon as possible.

Luke has it all. He's the owner of bars, has money, impact, cars and as many women as he wants. He's half - American but is currently living in Paris and enjoying his single life totally. But that is until he meets Megan...
Megan lives in a small town
I wanted to like this book but it lacked something. Luv and Megan have a one night stand that ends badly and things just go a bit weird for me. A guy who isn’t in for more, the last thing he should do is pursue a single mother who lives on another continent. I was surprised with Megan’s character because she was smart for the most part and was like hey this isn’t what I want and it won’t work.

The book jumps through to many POVs which honestly Simone and Ian added nothing to the story for me exc

Megan is a single mother perfectly content to spend her time protecting her son from untrustworthy men. Hardening her heart against the pain of trusting another man was the only option, until she met Luc.
Luc is a successful businessman with no belief in love or marriage. Offering mutual pleasure is his MO. After meeting Megan, his view on life and love changes.
