I’m warned that Carter Hayes is heartless.

He’s part of the screw crew.
He’ll just use you and leave you.
He’s ruthless and always gets what he wants.

Just look for the trail of broken hearts and dreamy sighs and you’ll find him.

“Hot as sin, Carter.”

Don’t go looking at my rating thinking I didn’t like the book. I did. Honestly. Who doesn’t enjoy a good enemies-to-lovers trope? I sure as heck do. And it may be the case that it’s just me and there really was no problem with this story, but I didn’t love this one.

Let’s explore why…

I felt like I was told about the Screw Crew (yeah, that’s really what these men called themselves) and I was supposed to love them despite it all. Despite the fact that they wore their whoring ways as a badge of ho

Gosh...

Hmpf...

I loved previous books by Michelle Horst those were on a darker side, however, and they were powerful in storytelling and emotional intense presentation through characters' development...

So, it pains me to say that this story was just meh for me...and not because it was sweet and romantic "second chance/enemies to lovers" trope BUT because neither the story telling was satisfying nor the characters were deep in characterisation...

Unfortunately, I felt 'nothing' while reading abou

Heartless took me by surprise as I didn't expect it to be that sweet, more like an angsty and stressful story.
This is a quick read, first installment in the Enemies to Lovers series; it features Carter and Della, but you'll meet all the others couples of the next installments.
That's what I particularly enjoyed in this book: the tribe vibe, the numerous friends who have each others' backs. They all are endearing characters, making you want to be a part of this big family.

Ok, so, after reading this blurb I thought I was in for a college based book where the relentless man-whore lands the focused, beautiful, burdened girl. I was only sort of right. When I finished reading the book I went back to re-read the blurb and make sure I wasn’t associating the wrong blurb with this book, but it was the correct blurb/book connection. The blurb just didn’t really match the story imo. Carter and Della are only in college for about 20% of the book, then they graduate

3,5. Não achei conexão entre os personagens. Os sentimentos mostrados não convenceram e pareciam que eram superficiais. O personagem principal era um chato, imaturo no início, ele cresceu no final, mas não deu para engolir. A personagem principal no início forte, convicta e no final uma maria mole. Af!!!!
O enredo em si foi bom. Somente!

What an introduction to the #screwcrew. This book will pull you in straight from the start. Heartless is the first book in the enemies to lovers series. This is Carter and Della's Story.

This book was a rollercoaster of emotions, Carter is sexy and hot in the outside but cold and ruthless on the inside. Della is the most genuine, selfless person and I really loved her characters. A Story of two people from two different worlds colliding in a whirlwind of lust and love.

I was absolutely over excited for this series as I am a fan of Michelle's work and she has not disappointed at all. Della and Carter have chemistry that is absolutely off the hinges hot and because of a series of unfortunate events, things don't go as planned. This book is filled with drama and intrigued and keeps you on your toes. This is a perfect example of how opposites attract as Della and Carter could not be more opposite if they tried. This

I enjoy this types of stories, so I couldn't wait for this book. Though I was apprehensive at the same time. I wasn't sure about the part where in the blurb said she new about the bet, but Della still let Carter in. I'm not fan of this, but I didn't let it to discourage me, because at the end you need to find out for yourself how author express it. Will I love it? Or will I hate it?

So I was two minded about this book, a book about guys making a bet, but I have to say that Michelle put my mind at ease when I started this book. I was hooked from the beginning.

This is book one in the Enemies to Lovers series. I love this authors stories and this was no different. Again Michelle has captivated me with her story.

Della and Carter are totally opposites. The chemistry between them is off the charts. Carter is part of the Screw Crew. He doesn't want to fall in love or settle down but sometimes fate interferes. Della has had a tough life and I was hoping she would find happiness.

After reading the blurb I didn't think I'd like Carter and the Screw Crew but

I wanted to strangle Carter in this book.. even after I still want to strangle him for a few things hehe.

But all in all, I loved the characters. Della is a strong willed, independent person who knows how to take care of herself. She's at school and only has a short time left before she graduates and earns her degree. Carter... well, to be honest, he's a heartless jerk... But behind the heartlessness of him, there's more to him. Over time he did win me over

Enjoyable, sexy, enemies to lovers romance told in dual POV. Carter Hayes is rich, privileged and kind of an a$$hole, he’s ruthless and if you get on his wrong side, for whatever reason, he'll make your life a living hell. Della Truman just wants to finish college, go back home and take care of her family. No hassle, no relationships, just study, work and provide for her loved ones, however, once she gets on Carter’s radar life takes a complicated turn.

I love the total asshole prick guys. And Carter is seriously a heartless prick. The meaner he was the hotter he got. He's the perfect alpha jerk, and I totally fell in love with him. With the first mean words out of his mouth, Carter had me hook line and sinker.

I devoured this yummy enemies to lovers story in record time. While the story wasn't deep and it moved sort of fast, it was still a quick and satisfying read. It soothed the itch I had for hot, exciting, and alpha.

This book has it all. Anger, lust, love, angst. Insta-love followed by hate followed by a slow rebuild of can and cannots. Carter and Della truly are not a fan of each other...like at all. But overall this book is about second chance love and finding your true mate.

I received this book as an ARC reader, and I am voluntarily giving my honest review.

One word addicted! I can not wait to read about all these boys. Carter and Della's story is heartbreaking, intense but oh so sweet. They have a very intense start. And when they reunite after 4 years their lives change very fast. Their story is complicated but you won't be able to stop reading! Can't wait for the next book in this series!
