This was... ughhhhhhhhhhhh. It was brutal. It was so sweet, so devastating, so right. This small town friends to lovers romance set in the quaint little town of Havenbrook was absolutely everything and I NEED MORE RIGHT NOW.

I seriously don't have words for how much I love this series. I scream about it to everyone who will listen because it's just so good, so well done, so addictive. I can't get enough and when Pact with a Heartbreaker hit my kindle, I devoured it in one sitting.

I went into this knowing it was going to be sweet and frustrating at the same time.

I loved Mac and Hudson and I loved that were BFFs to more. Their banter and button pushing was fantastic. Of course the UST is off the charts. I’m ignoring the heartbreak because I know Brighton will fix everything when they get their full size story.

Brighton Walsh always does a phenomenal job at delivering on the sweet and steamy. With this short prequel novella, she gives readers a story about a young pair of friends who have feelings for each other. Mac and Hudson have been friends forever and they have even decided to go to college together. Mac is very excited about the next stage of her life. Little does she know that Hudson is about to wreak havoc to that because he has decided that we wants to enlist. He decides to tell her the truth

Aw, I really enjoyed this! I wasn't sure how it was gonna end, though I knew it wouldn't be with an HEA, not after reading the previous books and knowing it was just kind of like a prequel novella. But I so desperately want a full book with Mac and Hudson finding their way back to a life they should have gotten in the beginning. I love the two of them--fiercely stubborn individuals who love adventure and who are always up for a challenge, who are loyal to those they care about even when they hav ...more

Rated 4.5 Stars

Pact With A Heartbreaker is a quick read that's sexy and sweet. I devoured it in one sitting. I loved this appetizer of sorts that sets the backdrop to the series while focusing on Hud and Kenna's relationship. I cannot wait for their full story, I have this feeling that it's going to be absolutely amazing.

Beautifully devastating.

Bri’s books, no matter their length, and everything they encompass within their pages—words, characters, setting, relationships, and heat—never fail to get a reaction out of me. She wrings every emotion out of her characters and her readers (or, at least, I’m assuming that most of her readers are like me), and that’s no small feat. One of the best things about Brighton’s novels is that she leaves you satisfied with the conclusion of her latest book, yet craving and anxio

In a short amount of pages, Brighton Walsh managed to rip my heart out of my chest. I have loved Mac in the other books in this series, but now I just absolutely adore her. Her and Hudson just became my favorites of this series and I cannot wait to get my hands on their full length novel. Friends to more is one of my favorite tropes and Mac and Hudson are everything I love about that trope. They have such great banter and are so much fun together a

Mind blowing

In an in shock. I cannot believe this is a cliffhanger. Hudson and Mac are best friends for decades so why can't they let their feelings be known. He's momma know his feelings for her and vise versa. They spend a long weekend together and it truly doesn't end the way you expect but it's good.

Absolutely loved this peek into Mac’s life. She’s been one of my favorite characters since I first read her in Second Chance Charmer.

I really felt the pain & anguish both Mac & Hudson’s life, but . . . It made me want more of them. Please & thanks, Brighton.

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for my honest review. (Keep ‘em coming (TWSS), B. I LOVE your writing.)

Loved Mac's turn but would have preferred a full length story instead of a novella.

Ready for more Kenna and Hudson

I loved getting this glimpse of Mac and Hudson and can’t wait for the continuation of their story in Captain Heartbreaker.

This was a sweet friends to lovers novella, but it is really just a precursor to another book. It was great getting the history on this couple before reading the other book.

Brighton Walsh spent nearly a decade as a professional photographer before deciding to take her storytelling in a different direction and reconnect with her first love: writing. When she’s not pounding away at the keyboard, she’s probably either reading or shopping—maybe even both at once. She lives in the Midwest with her husband and two children, and, yes, she considers forty degrees to be hoodi ...more
