4 stars

Being offered this advanced reading copy had no influence on my willing and always honest review.

This will be a short review for once. To the point like a well-oiled machine. Like Rift’s business was until Gwyn.

I won’t rehash the plotline as you can read it above, no. I’ll go straight to the jugular.
I didn't love Rift in the beginning. At all.
I may have understood he was hurt and was seeking his revenge it did not make it enjoyable to read about what he did.

It was very cynical, detached

Dylan "Rift" Russell is built to entice, he's programmed to lure and has honed his Art of Seduction to a science. So much so that he's arrogant about his power to charm women into his bed.
He's a Cock For Hire to put it bluntly. Devastatingly good looking with killer moves in bed make him Irresistable to women, making his job a piece of scrumptious cake !
Women screamed my name in bed. Begged and called constantly after just one taste. Getting a woman to cheat was easy if they liked what yo

Rift's past left him jaded and he no longer believed in love. SO needless to say that his conscience did not bother him for doing what he did....that is until he meets Gwyn and he realizes that she might be the one that was different.

Gwyn thought she found her prince, but little did she know that he was hiding in a prince's suit and was not whom she thought he was.

Rift tried really hard to not let Gwyn affect him but he was no match for that inner beauty that she let shine through.

This book! I knew I'd love it just from the blurb because books where the couple is headed for disaster?

I'm like a freaking moth to a flame for those reads. This didn't disappoint. Bravo ladies!

The book had a great fire to it in the beginning but it kinda got burned out right after Gwen finds out the truth about Rift, where it moved into something bland since there was absence of emotional chemistry between Rift and Gwen, the love seemed more sexual. And Mitchell disappeared into thin air, apart from these, I actually enjoyed the book.

Rift has been burned from his previous relationship. Moving on, he found a way to make serious money. He would be the one doing the heart breaking!! Looks, style, swoon worthy, ability to lure in even the hardest target. Rift is good, very good at his job. Never failing to have the outcome desired by the ones who hire him.

Gwyn is the daughter of a successful tech company owner. When she gets engaged to Mitchell who works directly under her father, she sees happiness in her father that she hasn’t

Overall: 4.5/5
Naughty Factor: 3/5
POV: Dual/1st person

What an enjoyable story this was! The premise was a bit different from what I’ve read in long while which felt like a breath of fresh air. The characters were very enjoyable.

Rift was so jaded when it came to women and meeting Gwyn really turned the tables on him. She wasn’t what he was expecting. She was giving, caring, graceful. She had a big heart and modest, no matter the amount of money she grew up with. She was also loyal. This made her a

I loved the blurb for this book. And, yes, it is cheating and it has cheating. Which, I think, was clear from the blurb. So, if this is a hard limit for you, this isn't the book for you. But, if you are ok with a hero who isn't perfect and a heroine who is a little flawed to, this book is for you.

If you are still reading, that means we have moved past the cheating and can talk about why this book is good. Cheating, by definition, is bad. And, it is somet

This is a quite easy read novel that seems predictable at times but the authors do a great job in throwing some twists our way that i wasn't expecting.

Rift comes across as an A-hole and well he is for the most part, he's arrogant and holding a grudge after having his heart broke. So he is basically the male version of a honey trap enticing women to be unfaithful on their other halves, his clients. I wasn't sure i was going to like him but once we got a glimpse of the real Rift that all changed.

F*** it

This book started out so good! It had me pretty much from the beginning! But... It had me a little all over the place to! I honestly didn’t know how Rift...aka Dylan was going to redeem himself towards the end of the book!

I was super excited to read this book when I saw the cover!!! It’s so sexy and the colors really work well. And there was some mystery to it.

Rift is not a good guy. He sleeps with woman and when he gets caught by their significant other he collects the cheque.

Gwyn is his next victim. Rift assumes she is just like everyone other woman. Selfish, gold digging and a ho! Gwynn’s Fiancé Mitchell wants Rift to have an affair with Gwyn so he can keep his job with Gwynn’s fathers company. Rift has no pr

I'm writing this review with a huge smile on my face. This book has induced one heck of a hangover and I don't want a cure. Even knowing what Rift does for a living, I still fell for him hard.

Rift has been burned in the past by his woman cheating on him. It literally broke him to the point that he made his profession being paid to seduce wives into cheating so the man could divorce her without any hassle. He has completely given up on love and vows to never trust a woman again. He soon finds ou

3.5 Stars-A Little Cookie Cutter, but a Good Read

Tabatha Vargo and Melissa Andrea did a nice job creating a character you hate to love in Heartbreak for Hire. Rift was annoying one second and then a good guy the next. I had to keep reading to see if he was ever going to move on from his past.

Rift is pretty cut and dry from the blurb. As a man that's had his heart stomped on in the past, his mission in life now is to make every woman that crosses his path pay for what happened to him. And he if

I love the story line ... what a great idea ...sort of ... I am not 1 who love cheating ... I understand it ... why it happens ... don't really like it ... figure you better say your peace and move on leaving the 1 you did leave not so heartbroken ... but what is this more about ... being paid for SEX? or??!

Heartbreak for Hire was not what I was expecting. Its full of love, lust, redemption and heartache. Lana @ White Hot Reads

Rift aka Dylan is a man on a mission when it comes to making women cheat on their significant other all while getting caught on purpose. He has never failed on a mission before but Gwyn is totally different from the other women and just might be the one he can't seduce.

The push and pull attraction they have for each other is undeniable but she just won't go there. Gwyn's rela

Loved it!

This book was actually really good. I hate cheating, but the blurb sounded fantastic. So I dove in.

First off I hate Mich what a freaking jerk!!! Gwyn is such a sweetheart and this girl literally tried to please her fiance, but he never had anything to do with her. He just wanted her dad's job. Mich hires Rift so that he can sleep with Gwyn and get out of the relationship. Little does Rift know that he is going to fall for Gwyn.

Gwyn and Dylan, aka Rift.

Rift knows how to entice the ladies and dial up the sex. Because that's all it is. Essentially sex for hire. Heartbreak For Hire. His actions are reprehensible. But with Gwyn, it all goes wrong. Her fiancé, Mitchell, is still the cheating bastard who hired him, but Gwyn is not the typical "cheating whore" he lures in.

Instead, he's drawn to her. And her to him...that is Dylan. Dylan loses sight of Rift, the ultimate goal, the Heartbreak For Hire. Instead his hatred and r

HEART BREAK FOR HIRE got to me with its intriguing, unique and refreshing concept. It’s unlike any other story I’ve read, although I know that’s a talent of Ms. Vargo, whose writing I’ve come to love. It was my first read by Ms. Andrea though.

A man hired to help filthy-rich men to get rid of their wives. No, not the macabre, bloody kind of way, but by seducing their wives and being caught in-flagrante. Ooops.

Rift is one hero difficult to like, to connect to – at least in the beginning. I have a

The story line for this book was so intriguing. I have never read a book that was based on this topic.

Rift is a man hired to help wealthy men get out of their marriages. He gets paid when the husband catches his wife with Rift. During all these years, Rift has never had feelings for one of his "jobs." When Rift meets Gwyn, he feels an instant attraction. After getting to know her, he realizes she isn't like the other women and his feelings begin to grow. He feels like she would be better off wit

This is the first time I have read a novel from either one of these authors, and I must say that I quite enjoyed reading Heartbreak For Hire. Gwyn and Rift were really great characters. Gwyn was such a sweetheart. Her love for everyone around her was felt through the pages. She was amazing and she was selfless, and goes through a hell of a lot of heartache! Rift is a professional heartbreaker. He is a gorgeous charismatic man with a swoon inducing smile. I could feel when things sta

Oh good lord. This book drove me crazy. I hated it and at the same time it was so entertaining I couldn’t hate it as much as I wanted.

Here’s the deal, I’m a fan of Tabatha Vargo. I’ve read some of her books and they are pretty amazing so I thought I’d give this one a shot. I noticed there was going to be some cheating involved when I read the synopsis but for some reason it didn’t register in my mind that there was a possibility that the main character was going to actuall

Admittedly, I had a hard time getting into this book. If I start off not liking the male lead, I tend to either stop reading the book altogether or I stretch it out as much as I can. However, I had to find out if Rift had anything good about him. I had to know if I would even like him by the end of the book.

I liked Gwyn, but I didn't like that she took forever to figure out what was obvious, from the way he treated her, and see what she needed to kick to the curb. Sometimes, I have to remind mys

Rift is hired by rich men wanting to catch their partners cheating even if he has to seduce them into cheating.

Gwyn is engaged to Mitchell but lately feels disconnected from him and their relationship. What she doesn’t know is that she’s Rift’s next target courtesy of Mitchell who wants out the relationship but doesn’t want to lose his prestigious job working for her father.

The ‘accidental’ meeting between them throws Rift off balance, he didn’t expect that one look would leave him fascinated.

I really enjoyed Heartbreak For Hire. The concept was different and I liked the mystery of it. Rift who's heart was previously crushed by his ex girlfriend and is in no way looking for a relationship. Men who want to get rid of their women hire him to have affairs and get caught. I just loved Gwen's character. She's kind, dedicates her life to giving back to society by volunteering at a children's hospital and she's dealt with tragedies in her life but has perservered. Unfortunately, she's Rift' ...more
