Ileana Harper is focused on her future with Tommy Colton, the man she fought so hard to get back to, but not everything is at it seems. Unable to confide in Tommy, Ileana holds tight to her last shred of sanity, struggling with inner demons that could jeopardize their relationship and her career with the FBI. Through it all, Ileana is intent on moving onward and never looking back. Too bad the past won’t stay in the past. Tommy Colton’s love for Ileana Harper kept hope for her safe return alive in his heart. Now, with Ileana by his side and his new job as a DEA agent, Tommy’s life is finally complete -- until a stranger appears, threatening to destroy their bond and tear them apart. Once again, Tommy might lose Ileana; perhaps this time forever. They say love conquers all…but sometimes fate has other plans. What if the past becomes our future?
Break My Heart is the sequel to Hold My Heart, and it’s a must that you read book one first. This book picks up right where Hold My Heart ended. Ileana is struggling with her life after healing from her injuries. She expected Tommy to be by her side because he has been with her for years, but he’s mysteriously nowhere around Besides being partners, they served together and have been through so much.
There’s only so much Tommy can take and not knowing if Ileana is coming back to him or not after her injuries, this poor man just loses it. My heart just broke for him. He’s so pitiful and heartbroken. Just when he had her, he lost her. Eventually, moving on to a new job isn’t all he expected it to be. He misses her more than he ever realized.
Ileana is determined to get Tommy back, and I loved seeing her strength that we saw so much of in book one. But, just when you think they are getting their happy reunion, here comes Will. Will is the last thing she expected, and it only brings her back to fighting with her emotions of what happened to her when she traveled back to the past.
Tommy and Ileana’s relationship is definitely not easy. With him being undercover with his new job and being gone a lot, it really tries their bond. Several times, I was ticked at Tommy and what he was having to do. I felt like he was reverting back to his playboy ways before Ileana. I was so afraid their relationship would be ruined before it even had a good chance to get started.
Without revealing too much, questions arise and Ileana and Will have their work cut out for them trying to figure out what’s going on. Just when you think you have it figured out, you are thrown for a loop. This book has many twists and turns and will definitely leave you guessing as to what is going to happen. So many things I was not expecting and by the end, I think my mouth was hanging open with a ‘what the hell’ happened moment. As usual with Esther’s writing, this book was planned out well and the characters are well developed. This is 4 star book is one that you can’t just skim over it and hope for the best. It’s one of those rare ones that make you really think about everything that is happening as the story evolves.
