You can’t hate me when I leave. 

He kidnapped me.
That was how I met Atlas Hyde.
A man known by many names and admired by all.
But most didn’t know he was ruthless, conniving, and always got what he wanted.
No matter the cost.

I was a good girl.
Never in trouble with the law.
Never took drugs.
Always did precisely what was expected of me.

Even with his hand around my throat and words that cut sharper than knives, I couldn’t help but wonder what happened to this beautiful man to make him that way.

That wonder disappeared when he threatened to kill my sister if I didn’t follow his dark demands.

The good girl I once knew had now been buried alive beneath this game of hatred and lust.
And I had a feeling Atlas Hyde never lost.

USA Today best selling author T.L. Smith brings you an angst filled enemies to lovers romance with a bad boy who has his eyes set on the good girl.

“Heartbreak Me” was FIRE!!! This was my first book from T.L. Smith; what an introduction!!! I devoured this book in one sitting. It was so good, and I felt like it ended too soon!

Theadora finds herself in a bad situation courtesy of her half-sister. She’s the only family she has, so she’s been righting her wrongs for many years. This time she messed up with some really bad people and they came for Thea. She’s to work her sister debt off, doing whatever is asked of her.

Atlas Hyde is a really powerful man. His reputation proceeds him, and everyone knows of him. Theadora’s sister stole form him, so he came to her for payback. What comes as blackmail, becomes an obsession. He’s intrigued by her, especially by the fact that she doesn’t cower easily. Even though she knows he’s dangerous, she fights him.

Their chemistry is off the charts. So many things are going on, but I could still feel the attraction pouring from my kindle! Atlas is dark, mysterious, and cruel at times. He’s possessive of her and considers her his. However, his actions don’t really show that! I despised Theadora’s sister, all she did was dragging her down.

I was left with many questions and not really sure what happened at the end. I desperately need the next book soon. I need to find out what will happen next!!!
