We rated this book:


Set in the backdrops of New York City, Thomas Duffy creates a sinful and emotionally charged contemporary thriller suspense novel of a young woman’s quest in self-discovery and her shot at a second chance in life. The concrete jungle of New York City can never be the same for a young teen that recently turned nineteen years old as she is thrown into a whirlwind as her life is turned upside down when she enters the life of being an escort in Heartbreaker.

Heartbreaker immediately introduces readers to the heroine, Amber Robertson, who recently moved to New York from Maryland. The Big Apple was supposed to be a new chapter and milestone in her life, but turning nineteen was nothing what she expected. First, she gets arrested for the first time for a pack of cigarettes that she stole, and then meets an interesting cast of characters while in jail. To say that the concrete jungle of New York was friendly to Amber is very far from it. Soon, she finds herself entering the business as independent escort where she meets a man who changes and shapes her. Jeffery is a character that I will say that will raise your suspicions. His presence in Amber’s life could be taken as somewhat of comfort and at the same time chilling. So who is Jeffery in Amber’s life?

The Heartbreakers was a quick fast-paced read that intertwines suspense, mystery, and intrigue. This book is more of an exploration of a young woman rediscovering herself through this man that she met. Is he dangerous? Is he sane? All those questions will be answered in this quick novel, but what I can tell you this book is more of a self-discovery thriller. Did I enjoy this book? I would say as far as storyline and writing, the author did keep me engaged with the story. I would just say that there were times I felt the author could have taken his time in developing the story and making it more complex to add depth, but other than that, this book had a satisfying ending.
