The nurses call me Dr. Heartbreaker. They say I put the hot in hot-shot cardiologist.

Not that it matters. I never stick my tongue depressor in my co-workers.

What can I say? I play by a set of personal rules.

Even if those rules eliminate 99.9% of the woman I come in contact with from my dating-pool.

Even if those rules land me on a blind date with Emily, my childhood sweethe

And on I go with my challenge of reading every single one of the CHC books...

DOCTOR HEARTBREAKER is Rhett and Emily’s story, and it features Simon and Bridget from BRITISH BEDMATE. I thoroughly enjoyed this story but had one little issue that really grated on me...as we all know, the character of Simon from the original book by Vi & Penelope, is British. I completely understand that every time an author recreates this character in their book he is going to be slightly different, and I fully admi

So far this one also wasn't my favorite.. Rhett and Emily were childhood friends then lovers then nothing. Thru a break, yup Ross and Rachel, did we learn nothing.on a break Rhett goes to party wakes up with Lila who claims baby is hiss and poor Emily is broken and leaves, I probably would have too. Years later they are thrown together, will their be forgiveness. I appreciated the work with children and honestly that is what pushed me thru but at times it killed me.

This book, in one image:


Doctor Heartbreaker started well: the second chance romance of childhood sweethearts. But there was SO MUCH GOING ON for a book barely over 200 pgs!!
1. Childhood sweethearts that break up a in a very painful/traumatic way
2. Tragedy on BOTH SIDES
3. A child fighting for her life
4. An evil ex-wife
5. An obstinate colleague who doesn't take no for an answer
6. Panic attacks
7. Work issues

The book could have worked well if you only had to deal with issue #1. There was enough bag

Doctor Heartbreaker ended up giving me more than I’d initially anticipated. In fact, the more I read the more I got from it. Not only did I fall deeper and deeper for the characters, but the emotion of this one hit hard.

In truth, I expected this to be a rather predictable second chance romance. Although it had all the elements you would expect from such a story, it also contained plenty to make it stand out. It was packed with details that had me falling for the characters and the story, with th

4.5 Stars for Doctor Heartbreaker (A Cocky Hero Club Novel)
This is Rhett and Emily’s story and that means catching up with Bridget and Simon from British Bedmate. Kathryn M Hearst is a new author to me but after reading Doctor Heartbreaker that’s going to change because I’m really left wondering why she hasn’t crossed my radar before now...
Rhett and Emily have a history, they grew up together, their mums were best friends and they enjoyed many firsts as boyfriend and girlfriend but the timing wa

I am a romantic can't help it and I love a good romance story and for me 'Doctor Heartbreaker' was that a very good romance book and a great addition to the 'Cocky Hero Club'!

This is my first story by Kathryn M. Hearst but it won't be my last delve in fact I went straight on to Kindle Unlimited and downloaded 'Absinthe Minded' another of her books.

Rhett and Emily have more baggage than a 747 has cargo and after not seeing each others for years are thrust together pretty darn closely in a heartbreaking and heartwarming tale. I liked the characters together, though I did feel they were a bit wishy washy in a couple of situations. BUT the two were BFFs since they were in preschool and then were each others' firsts and I definitely have never been in that situation before, so it could be extremely justified. The doctor aspect and reasons why ...more

Great read from a new-to-me author in the Cocky Hero Club. Doctor Heartbreaker was a wonderfully crafted second chance romance between childhood best friends.

Emily and Rhett grew up next door to each other and fell in love in the sweetness of youth. As they grew older, life and drama split them apart but you never forget your first love. Years have past but they're thrust together again when Rhett is chosen to perform a potentially life saving surgery on a young child in Emily's care. Whi

This was a great second chance romance. Rhett and Emily were so young when they met and were friends that turned into high school sweethearts. Then while in college and they were on a break, Rhett was stupid and met someone else who took advantage of him. This ended his relationship with Emily for a decade.

Then by chance they are set up as each other’s blind dates by our amazing Simon and Bridget. It takes a while for Emily to let down her walls she built around her heart when it comes to Rhett

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Doctor Heartbreaker by Kathryn M. Hearst is the story of Rhett and Emily. This book is a part of the Cocky Hero Club Series but can be a standalone book if you wish to do so. Rhett and Emily had one time been friends that turned into more but during their college days Rhett ended up being a part of something that hurt Emily which in turned broke them up. Now in their present day, Rhett is called a Heart breaker but is a successful doctor. Emily is a part of the organization that helps needed kid ...more

Another new author for me, I really enjoyed this story of second chances. Rhett and Emily knew each as kids and were even boyfriend and girlfriend but things happen that drive them apart and they each move on with their lives. Now, set up on a blind date by friends, they meet again. This was a quick read and while there is a bit of OW drama, it doesn't take away from the story of the two main characters getting back together, but can they make it work? Loved it! ...more

A really great second chance romance between two child hood friends. It features my favorite of the original Cocky Hero Club couples with Simon and Bridget. I am very much enjoying all of these great authors and their additions to the amazing world that Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward have created.

**I was provided with an advanced readers copy of this book in exchange for my fair and honest review**

I love stories that have a kismet quality to them. That’s what endeared me to this story. A woman who works to find ways to save children who need life saving surgeries and a man with a means and capability to accomplish that … kismet! Throw in the two have known each other since they were children and a whole lot of other history between them and you have a poignant story that will make your heart sing!

An apple a day keeps the doctor away but honestly I don't know anyone that wouldn't want to climb Rhett like a tree. Rhett and Emily were childhood best friends that became more only to be torn apart. 10 years later they run into each other again and the sparks are still there. I love second chance romances and thoroughly enjoyed Doctor Heartbreaker.

This is the first book I've read from this author. With that said, I am a huge fan now. I loved this second chance romance. Emily and Rhett grew up together and loved each other at a young age. Due to circumstances and heartbreak they went separate directions. Emily works for Caring Hearts which is a non profit organization that helps those in need of medical attention get the help they need. Rhett is a cardiologist who is amazing at his job. The situation with the little girl Emily is helping n ...more

Second chance romance give us all hope that a once broken heart can always be mended and brought right. For Emily and Rhett, Love was cut short and hearts were broken, now after 5 years and a bit of fate they have a chance to mend their broken hearts and be together again.
Passion and chemistry fill the pages of this romance that will live for ever in your mind begging to be read over and over again. An amazing read worthy of the CHC.

I loved that Emily and Rhett received a second chance. Both have experienced heartbreak and loss. I loved witnessing them rediscover the love they once shared. This was the first book I've had the pleasure of reading, one of the benefits of the cocky hero club. It won't be the last, Kathryn had me captivated in this sweet, swoony, little angsty read. ...more

This was a second chance romance of Rhett and Emily. They meet again after many years from him breaking her heart. They come together again for a little girl. This book was amazing in every way. These two were made for eachother and it just took a little bit longer.

Holy this was an intense emotional read forsure. This is my first read from this author and won't be the last. Loved every page. Rhett and Emily have loved each other since forever, but I don't think they had the timing was quite right. After a chance meeting and possibly a miracle, they reunited. Damn this book pulled all the feels out of me.

First book by Kathryn M. Hearst and it was a sweet story. The story definitely took you on an emotional ride with a child with a heart condition that has low percentage rates of surviving a surgery, and then Rhett and Emily’s past break-up that still haunts them to this day. But you will also get a lot of laugh out loud moments, romance and steam. Overall, I definitely recommend this book and look forward to reading more from this author.
Amy Malek Concepcion
This was such a sweet second chance romance. Rhett and Emily grew up as BFFs that turned to more. But then things changed and they were driven apart. Years later their paths cross on a blind date and they end up getting a second chance. That is a very oversimplified plot summary. There is so much else going on with Paola and her heart condition (the child Emily brought from Colombia that needs a lifesaving surgery performed by Rhett) all kind is drainage/ trouble from Rhetts Ex and a set of medd ...more

This is the first time reading a book by this author. This book had all the emotions you expect with a romance book.

I loved the chemistry between Emily and Rhett. I am glad that they were able to sort out their history and finally end up on the same page.

The emotion came from little five year old Paola.

That Lila is a piece of work - my mother always said if you cannot say anything nice about someone don't say anything at all!

Young friendship between a boy and girl.

High School and college romance.
