They say you never forget your first.

Jagger Cruz, the popular, gorgeous, athletic, heartbreaker, was my introduction to college flings.

Over the years, I’ve tried to pay no attention to every wicked rumor I heard about him, even though deep down I knew they weren’t just rumors. Unable to face the consequences of what we’d done, if we were ever in close quarters, I ran in the other direction. If we were coincidentally put in the same class, I dropped it.

Avoidance was the name of the game and so far I was winning.

That is, until we’re assigned the same apartment.

Living with Jagger during my last semester was definitely not in my plans, but I’m determined to make it work. As long as I don’t look at him for too long or let his innuendos get under my skin, I should be fine, right? I have to be.

They say hooking up with your roommate can be messy, and losing my heart to Jagger would be disastrous.

Why the heck did I wait so long to actually read a book by this author? She has been on my radar for several years now, but for some reason I hadn't taken the plunge and one-clicked on of her books...until now. The moment I read the blurb and saw the cover for this book, I just knew that this was going to be the story to pop my Claire Contreras cherry! AND... I must say what the PERFECT book to do so!

The Heartbreaker was an addictively steamy enemies-to-lovers new adult sports romance with a fun storyline and charming characters that had me hooked throughout this fast paced read. Jagger Cruz and Josephine Canó had that off the charts chemistry that grips your heart and leaves you swooning through those angsty moments. The passion they share was explosive and you can feel how much they care about each other, even if they both want to deny it. That back and forth push and pull feel will have you on edge as you watch these two fighting their feelings.

This story was a beautifully captivating read and I really hope that the other Cruz brothers get their own stories because I need more of them! Also, I will certainly be reading more books by Claire Contreras soon since I really loved this story and the characters.
