Q: Would you pay someone to help you seek revenge?
Heartbreak for Hire
Pub Date: June 27, 2021
Brinkley Saunders works at Heartbreak for Hire who helps with revenge. She works in the Ego department. But there are other girls that specialize in other types of guys Grifters, Cheaters etc. I think this is such a fun concept. I’m sure there has to be something like this in real life. Women can be just as bad as men in the lying cheating and backstabbing arenas but this company was created to help women, right.
One of Brinkley’s jobs doesn’t feel right but the guy definitely does. She never breaks the rules or gets personal which led her to making some mistakes since she’s definitely interested in him. This brings Marc into HFH since she left something behind.
He gets to see behind the veil but will he see that she wasn’t on the job with him? Their chemistry is so steamy!!!
Oh man this would have been such a fun job in my twenties!! I would have loved to play the part to bring down jerks.
This book was so fun and it did end on a more healthy note, revenge is sweet but it’s fleeting as they say.
The banter between Brinkley and Marc was just perfect! They were so hilarious!
Thank you gallery books and net galley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
Brinkley Saunders has a secret.
To everyone in the academic world she left behind, she lost it all when she dropped out of grad school. Once a rising star following in her mother’s footsteps, she’s now an administrative assistant at an insurance agency—or so they think.
In reality, Brinkley works at Heartbreak for Hire, a secret service that specializes in revenge for jilted lovers, frenemies, and long-suffering coworkers with a little cash to spare and a man who needs to be taken down a notch. It might not be as prestigious as academia, but it helps Brinkley save for her dream of opening an art gallery and lets her exorcise a few demons, all while helping to empower women.
But when her boss announces she’s hiring male heartbreakers for the first time, Brinkley’s no longer so sure she’s doing the right thing—especially when her new coworker turns out to be a target she was paid to take down. Though Mark spends his days struggling up the academic ladder, he seems to be the opposite of a backstabbing adjunct: a nerd at heart in criminally sexy sweater vests who’s attentive both in and out of the bedroom. But as Brinkley finds it increasingly more difficult to focus on anything but Mark, she soon realizes that like herself, people aren’t always who they appear to be.
