Dani Rene has written a great book in Ace of Hearts. A love triangle between brothers that is exceptionally well written and includes incredible details and descriptions. Triston drove me batty at times with his demanding rigid ways and Bash - swoon (he needs his own book). Evie was a solid character trying to find her heart between the two.

While this book does contain cheating it also contains true raw feelings of happiness, anger, lust and love. I know cheating will make this a book for not ev

I am not really sure what to say about this story because I really enjoy this author normally but, for me this time around I am going to say this story was not for me and I really hate saying that.



This story sexual wise was super hot and I can't believe I am saying this but, this story had way to much sex and not enough plot and what plot for me just didn't do it for me.The story itself was fan worthy and had a Fifty Shades of Grey Vibe to it .



There was no doubt the Tristion and Bash characters

Mind Blown! I was capivitated from the start of the book as we're introduced to Emily as she has moved to NY recently and doesn't have any friends or family round, then we get to meet Triston the sexy as all hell alpha male. This story turns up the heat just the way I like it, the Sparks are flying everywhere with these two. Throughout the whole book I had a big grin on my face imagining myself as Em, she is one very lucky lady. Just when you think things won't get any hotter we learn about Bash ...more

✨ DREAMY’S REVIEW ✨

Choosing the Hart is an emotional, raw, real, love triangle romance that will have you rooting for both heroes!

Sassy, relatable, social, shy, and full of life, Emily Reid walks into his office and shaking his world and slowly changing his perspective.

Can I first start saying that this was written SO GOOD for being a debut novel?

I am blown away by how addictive this book was, and how this story was filled with twist and turns that kept my attention until the very end. I love how Dani could make you picture exactly everything that was on the pages.

I was HOOKED from the first page, wanting more Em – Bash – Triston (No, I’m not going to explain who they are, Yes you’re going to have to pick it up for yourself and find out). I was loving all thi

Its been a while since I have read a love triangle book and I forgot how much I loved them. Not knowing who was going to win. Working it all out on my end of which one of the two I would choose. But you also get a little bit of suspense and drama in it as well. I mean what Triangle wouldn't have drama.

Emily has up and moved to New York to pursue her dream job in which she lands. But little does she realized the kind of trouble she could be facing.

For her first novel...she hit a home run. This story had the perfect combination of love and angst, even had a few no, no, no moments. Emily gets the ideal job in NYC. Her boss, Triston, is a hard egg to crack. But is there chemistry between them? Triston sends off mixed messages, so when Emily meets the CEO of a coffee company, she doesn't hesitate to accept a date. They each have their secrets that will make or break them. Can they handle the truth? How can she love 2 men? How can she choose? ...more

It's hard to believe this is a debut novel, because it's a great storyline, with 2 hot with brothers and a amazing female lead. A rollercoaster of a read, highs and lows and one tough decision. Overall a wonderful 5 star read!

So sexy and emotional, love triangles are one of my favourite genres and in Dani's hands this is a rollercoaster I devoured with the upmost pleasure. It drove me nuts at times, but in the most delicious of ways. I was torn and frustrated but LOVED EVERY. SINGLE. SECOND.

Let me start by saying that this book has caused me some internal debate over rating it a 4 or 5... and it has everything to do with ME and not the authors writing or delivery of this story.

NOTE: This is a love triangle with a twist & if you aren't for a read that has some cheating elements, then please read any other of this brilliant authors books.

Our heroine Emily is in start-over mode - new city, new job, new beginning and not looking for love. So naturally when you're not looking - it p

Oh My Goodness! If your a Fifty Shades Of Grey fan then you will flove this book. This book has it all but the Red Room Of Pain! The storyline is amazing and I had a hard time picking if I was Team Triston or Team Bash. This book will make you feel all the emotions that Em goes through. See her struggle to getting the happiness she deserves.

Triston is dominant, Alpha male, sexy as sin and has a very dark side. Em works for

OMG as much as I have come to love Dani Rene's books, I can't believe I am just now reading Ace of Harts. But better late than never.

Emily has left home and moved to NY and lands her dream job! Not only is the job what she has always wanted she has a super sexy boss too. A Boss that comes to want her for more than just work. Emily also meets another super sexy guy while on a work assignment. Emily really likes both men and is torn between the two.

Fantastic story arc! Emily Reid is torn between two hot brothers: Triston and Bash. They have a sorted past that makes them untrusting of one another. It is this history that makes the story much more interesting and unpredictable. The brothers’ mutual attraction for Emily Reid makes all those negative feelings toward each other resurface. It doesn’t bring out the best in either of them, but it definitely heightens the sexual passion.

Emily is caught between them and not knowing what is true or p

I enjoyed this book. There definitely was a lot of erotic scenes between all 3 main characters. Emily Reid is a 33 year old divorced woman starting her life over in New York where she works with a hot smoldering billionaire, Triston Hart. She is attracted to her new boss and it seems the feeling is mutual. Triston presents a hot and cold demeanor to Em leaving her feeling confused. She meets a charming coffee entrepenur, Sebastion, aka Bash whom intrigues her. Em is in a love triangle with both ...more

Wow this story was really interesting, it was hot and sweet at same time. It makes you realise you are meant to be loved. It doesn't matter if you love two people, you will always love one more. It also made me realise your past is your past not your future.
I loved how Emily came out of her shell, and let herself feel. After everything with her husband, she didn't let that way her down. She lives her life to fullest, and lets people love her.
I loved Triston, how he has a dark side to him but al

I loved this book! It has everything that I have come to love about a book by Dani René. It is undeniably sexy and the emotional roller coaster that she puts you on is insane, but you can't help but want more. This book is a love triangle with a twist that will frustrate you in the best way possible. If you love an alpha male and don't mind a little competition then you will love this book! enjoy;)

This was a mixed bag of tricks. On the surface, the storyline had the potential to be really good and plot driven. The characters also were at first relatable and likable. Then things kind of changed all the way around.

Emily has just moved to the city and landed her dream job which also comes with her dream man wrapped up as her boss. When he flip flops hot and cold on her with no follow through she ends up going out with another good looking guy she meets at a work function. Since this is a lov

4.5 Stars — I am a long time fan of Dani Rene and it was amazing to read her first published novel. Her writing has evolved but she still gave us the strong dominant alpha that you love and hate all at once.

I was worried going into this because although cheating is not a hard limit for me I do have some issues with it...I was uncomfortable at times but loved how things worked out. I could feel Emily’s turmoil and pain of being in love with two men. Triston pissed me off at times with his evasiv

I’m not sure where to start. I really really wanted to love this book because I love the angst that cheating and bring but sadly this book fell flat for me. It felt forced and monotone throughout most of the story. In my head the characters all had the same voice. They didn’t differ to me. Maybe that’s because it was a single POV or something.

This book was very...... sex prone. That’s the one thing that came to mind. After the first sex scene it seemed liked every chapter had many sex scenes in

A hot and dramatic love triangle story which left me hot around the collar and soaking in the panty-region.

Dani René writes engaging and steamy stories and this one was another winner!

I loved the characters and the intricate back and forth between them. I did struggle to understand the motivations of the characters at times, but the emotional impact was definitely there and I was scowling, laughing, and smiling at my kindle throughout.

Emily Reid has picked up her life and moved to New York to peruse her dream job. When she lands it, little does she know the amount of trouble she is causing herself. Her boss, Triston Hart, is your typical CEO - tall, dark handsome (tattooed) and not into love. He doesn’t do it after his own heartache, but when Emily walks into his office he is drawn to her in a way he can’t describe.
While dealing with an event for work, Emily comes across Sebastian aka Bash. Sexy, funny and seriously good loo
