Have you ever had that "what the hell was I thinking" feeling? Like a true Homer Simpson "D'oh" moment? When you made a decision and then realize that was the worst decision ever. Yeah. That.

Sadie is not going to fall in love. Period. And she is happy with that decision. She thought her boyfriend Maxwell was on the same page. Until he wasn't.

Maxwell is a hunky fireman who was surprised to fall in love. And then surprised when Sadie didn't walk away....no, she ran away. Leaving M

I received an ARC of this book and in return I would give an honest review!

I didn't really get into the story at all. Nothing wrong with how or what she wrote...just something that didn't click.
I liked the idea of the story. Somewhat realistic love story.

Love is blind...love is something we all want, but at what cost?

Cold Hearted is about how much they wanted to protect their hearts, but sometimes love conquers all and you fold. Maxwell's job is all about saving lives. He's a firefighter and a hardheaded ladies' man. Sadie is strong, driven hard worker. We are taking on their journey of love a gone wrong. We see the struggle they both go through in life. When you lose at love, is it worth the fight or do you walk away? Love is a gamble are you

Maxwell is a firefighter. Wants to have sex with no string attached. Until he meets Sadie. Sadie is the same way. All is good for them until he tells her he loves her. She runs like always. She realizes she has made a mistake. Will it be to late for them?
I love this authors writing skills. There are sex scenes but not the over the top descriptive ones. She brings her characters into real life every day situations that can happen to all of us at any given moment. You can relate to her characters

Maxwell Newman is a sexy firefighter who was never looking for love. He was perfectly happy whoring his way around Austin, until he met Sadie. She was a game changer.

Sadie Wilson is a successful business woman who runs away when anything in her life takes a serious turn. Maxwell isn't any exception.

things get hot and heavy between the two and when Maxwell tells her he loves her, she does what she does best....runs!

Coldhearted is the story of a second chance romance and the true epitome of lett

I loved this book!❤ The story of Maxwell and Sadie is a love story gone wrong. This is a story of what happens when you are too scared to feel love, true love and what happens when it slips from your life. It is a story of heartache and fear. A story of taking a second chance with an open heart. It is a story of realization - the realization that all good things can come with some pain but that it will all be worth it in the end! If you love a hot firefighter who loves a fiercely independent wom ...more

Wow. From page one I was completely sucked into this story. I HAD to know what was going to happen next! Brooklyn Taylor brings a powerful punch to the meaning of second chance romances and I’ve not read one quite like this before. This book is about finding love, losing it, regretting it, finding it again, and doing everything within your power to hold on to it. I don’t want to say too much about the story itself because you need to experience it for yourself. Overall, it’s a fantastic

I loved this story. I didn't not expect the twist that this book took. I loved Sadie, who is a little messed up by her experiences and expectations. I really felt sorry for her. Maxwell is quite the catch and decides to settle down. Their chemistry was amazing. I loved the journey each one took.
I voluntarily reviewed this book and was not compensated in any way.

This is the first story I read by Brooklyn Taylor. She is new author to me so the blurb about Cold Hearted intrigued me. It was a good story about a hot firefighter Maxwell Newman who thought he found true "love" with the no nonsense, independent Sadie Wilson. This second chance romance was filled with angst, happiness, sadness and anger all in search of love. Both Maxwell and Sadie have major issues with love and being in love which is the basis of the story.

Maxwell Newman and Sadie Wilson are

Amazing book! When you think your relationship is amazing and dont want to change anything life throws you curve balls. Maxwell will show his true feelings but will Sadie show her true feelings or tuck and run?
Sometimes you really have to learn how a person thinks to actually understand where they are coming from.

Ive got an ARC for honest review.
In my opinion, the story is only 3,75*
I have to say I liked the story, not really loved and the end was quite predictable. Dont get me wrong I dont want to sound harsh or anything. I love second chances reads but I couldnt get into the story right away and when I got there I quite have known what happens. I honestly sometimes just skipped the lines to get to the really important parts.
I liked the attraction between both characters though and was excited for them

This book was in the POV of both Sadie and Maxwell. I liked the book because I wanted Maxwell to be happy since he was a great guy that everyone liked. I have recommended this book to my coworkers. I plan on reading more books by Brooklyn Taylor. I love her name.

Maxwell was the hot firefighter who only wanted no strings sex until he met Sadie. They both wanted the same thing until his feelings changed. By the time he realized he was in love with Sadie he was too far gone to change it. Sadie never wanted to love anyone she didn't even thunk she was capable. This story had me feelings so many things at point even anger. That's how you know you get all the feels. This story isn't always pretty but it's a journey to love. I guess the saying is true if you l ...more

What a great book. Must say first up I loved the ending. The whole way through book I kind of hoped this would happen. Maxwell is a loveable guy who gets his heart broken twice, battles through to win the love of his life back. Sadie the coldhearted one, has to work through her issues to get to her happy ending. I loved how the characters all interacted together throughout book, made it flow very smoothly. Can't wait to read more from this author. ❤ ...more

Like him, Sadie thinks love is a four letter word. Everything between them is great until Max realizes that he has fallen in love with Sadie.

Cold Hearted by Brooklyn Taylor is loaded with feels and emotions. Taylor brings her readers on a journey. One that's not always pretty, but it's intense and powerful.

Maxwell Newman and Sadie Wilson face obstacles that few can survive. And Taylor does an incredible job of bringing their story home!

4 Stars!!!

What happens when you swear you will never fall in love but the inevitable happens, only you realize it too late? The man you love with all your being has moved on and found happiness with another? Sadie Wilson never planned on falling for Maxwell Newman and when he confessed his love for her she ran scared. Now she must learn to live with her actions, even if they make her seem Coldhearted.

I was so happy when I learned that Ms. Taylor was giving us the story of Sadie and Maxwell. I fell hard f

Brooklyn Taylor's Coldhearted is a second chance romance that will pull at your heart strings and have you believing almost anything is possible.

Maxwell didn't realize how he felt about Sadie until it was too late, and now he feels empty. He is trying to move on, but how is he supposed to move on without he one person he loves.

Sadie never wanted love until Maxwell came into the picture, and now they aren't together. She wants him back, but thinks it's too late. Is it really though? Read to fin

Coldhearted is another great read by Brooklyn Taylor. As usual, her stories really make you think about your own life and the choices you make, as well as the consequences of those choices. Coldhearted is really uniquely written, sort of telling two stories at once. One is of a past relationship, one is of a current relationship, and both come to a head at the end of the book.
It centers around Maxwell, who is every girl's fantasy. A sexy fire fighter who has a heart of gold that keeps getting s

Brooklyn has done it AGAIN!! WOW! Amazing FABULOUS book!! A definite must read!! So many feels about love and how you can lose your love of your life without saying “I love you”.

In Coldhearted there are two main characters; Sadie and Maxwell.

Maxwell Newman is a Lieutenant fireman. He lost his parents in a car crash when he was only seven years old. His aunt, Charlotte and Uncle James took care of him since then. Uncle Jame

Coldhearted is just perfect. I as a reader have been waiting for to read. I have read just
about all of her books and she has a way with her writing, she brings you into the story
of her characters. Brooklyn Taylor has a fan in me for sure.

by your age, most people have been in several relationships, but you've only had that

Maxwell and Sadie will take you to one of the most intense story about two people with so many demons to defeat however one of them goes and takes the leap of faith and gives his heart but Sadie is not ready. That will open the door to so many events this two will have to face in order to find their happy ending.

Maxwell will show you how sometimes you will have to let go of what you think is forever in order to make it yours for the rest of your life. This is one of the most passionate story wit
