He likes a challenge…

Here’s the deal: I’m the best center fielder in the major leagues. I’m also the guy who cost his team the championship game and acted very unsportsmanlike. So, when the team hires a social media manager to repair the damage to my reputation, I don’t argue. But then I meet Chloe Conrad, and I suddenly understand what people mean when they say they have

Fun and flirty with oodles of romance and chemistry, Heartthrob is without doubt Robin Bielman doing what she does best.

My heart was literally doing a happy-dance whilst I sat reading as Chloe and Finn’s romance leapt from sweet to steamy, humorous to heartfelt. Success and wealth is in pro-baseball star Finn’s DNA and whilst he has the confidence and air of alpha-loveliness that comes with that, he’s gro

There is nothing I love more than a book that puts a giant, schmoopy smile on my face for almost the entire story. That very smile was set to perma-grin from the moment of Finn and Chloe’s meet-cute to the very end (with only slight wobbles along the way). I loved them so much, and Heartthrob is the epitome of a feel good story.

Finn is not exactly what I expected from the “hottest player in the major leagues”, much less American Royalty. He was much more likable than I anticipated – funny, humbl

Absolutely drool worthy baseball playing hero Finn Auprince meets his match in Chloe Conrad, baseball umpires daughter and has sworn off love believing she's "cursed." Welcome to world of the Auprince brothers! Guaranteed to please! Did not put this one down.

Goodreads rating: 4.50

My rating: 4.5 stars!

I was given an arc copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, all opinions are my own.

Before I came across this book, I had never heard of Robin Bielman before. So I genuinely had no idea what to expect from this author, but I was so pleasantly surprised!

Heartthrob is the first book in the American Royalty series, and I can’t freaking wait to preorder book two and three!

The first half of this book was a 4, while the second half was a 3.5.

If you're looking for a light read that'll make you smile, this is the book! Heartthrob is the kind of book that makes you feel like you're on a cloud high up in the sky, with no cares in the world except for what's happening between the pages.

There's nothing worse than reading a book with characters you can't root for. That was not a problem here, thank goodness!!

Baseball is not really my sport but I can enjoy books with it, here I followed well enough too. I've read Robin Bielman a couple of times mostly and liked them so I was intrigued by this sports romance. Finn Aupprince getting injured and losing a major game was blow. Being competitive as he is and known for how good a catcher. Having a social media manager wasn't in his plans but Chloe caught his attention and slowly became more. Chloe has a had run of bad luck in relationships so

That is where Chloe Conrad comes in. Chloe was hired by the team to amp up Finn's image. Only problem is the insane attraction Finn feels for Chloe.

Sweet romance following Finn Auprince, self confessed batchelor, millionaire and arguably America’s best baseball player. His team hires a social media manager to spruce up his slightly damaged reputation. Enter Chloe Conrad, whizz with social networking and she’s definitely got his stats, she’s not interested though, she’s nursing a broken heart. However, when Finn wants something, he’s persistent, and Chloe proves to be the ultimate challenge. What can harm can a little flin

Sometimes you just need a wonderful sappy romance to escape in. This book was perfect! Chloe & Finn were attracted from the beginning. Chloe is the social media manager the team hired to boost Finn’s presence & followers. She’s been hurt by 4 different boyfriends, feels she’s jinxed in love & is determined to stop dating. Finn is from a wealthy family but is very down to earth. He steers clear of entanglements because he wants to concentrate 200% on his career. Unfortunately, he was ...more
This is the first book I have read by Robin Bielman and I absolutely loved it! Heartthrob is written in the perspectives of Finn, a MLB player recovering from injury, and Chloe, a social media manager assigned to help him. I love dual POV novels so I was very happy with this setup. This book had everything I love in a contemporary romance novel - likable main characters, family involvement, great secondary characters, obvious chemistry between the mains, and a tiny bit of angst. I was truly root ...more

I finished my advanced copy of Heartthrob and I absolutely fell in love with Finn. Sexy, smart talking baseball player - check, sexy, smart woman who loves baseball - check. Finn and Chloe were a match made in heaven. Chloe grew up around baseball, her father is a home plate umpire in the major leagues so she knows and loves the game. Finn and Chloe meet by chance once night after getting into a fender bender and it was love at first sight for both of them.

I love a feel good story, and throw in a sexy baseball player, and I’m hooked! Heartthrob is a wonderful story with a captivating storyline, engaging and likeable characters, and undeniable attraction that is front and centre from the time this unlikely couple meet.

And the support cast was amazing; Josh, Jesse and Sammy, just to name a few, and the family interaction between Finn and his brothers that was typical sibling ribbing, with a lot of love thrown in too. And let’s not leave out his deli

A big thank you to NetGalley and Tule Publishing for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. First time reading this author. I truly enjoyed this book! Finn was a fascinating character with more depth than I expected. Chloe was just plain fun! I am not a huge sports fan but I still enjoyed this book. I will definitely be looking for other books by this author. I think this book is a solid 4, and feel that most Romance readers will enjoy. Try it!!

Finn you know tends to eavesdrop:
“Yes, Finn has a p***s. And from what I can tell, it’s spectacular. "
“Thank you ,” a deep, decidedly unfeminine voice says into the room. I fumble the phone in horrified surprise.
Finn is just a sweet man when it comes to Chloe, “care to go now? The sooner I get you in bed, the longer I can express my admiration for certain parts of you.” I liked this book, I fell in love with Finn.

Heartthrob by Robin Bellman the first book in An American Royalty series. I loved this story. Great character development perfect for the storyline. I enjoyed the dialogue and the possible connection between the main characters Finn a injured baseball player and Chloe. I look forward to reading the next books in this series and more by this author.

It's a sports romance with truly likable characters. The guy has so much but is grounded with a super nice family, including cool grandma, Rosemary.

I like that Chloe has a job that many are interested in because managing social media for a celebrity sounds fun. She has a job that puts Finn Auprince in her life. He's not looking for serious but Chloe is ringing all bells with good chemistry.

The story is light and sweet. The intimate scenes are hot but well done. It's a hit!!

Chloe feels cursed cause all of her last boyfriends meet the one, the love of their life while dating her, so she is swearing off dating, but her and Finn or so attracted to each other and have so much chemistry it’s like it’s destiny they become a couple.
Throw a puppy and a couple of little boys, one with a heart condition, into this story and it is just sure your heart is going to get all involved.
