Victor Reuben. Most sought out divorce attorney in LA.
Nicole Alessi. Soon to be ex-wife of Hollywood's biggest star, Victor’s latest client and his boss's daughter.
In such a high profile divorce, they can't afford any extra drama.
Luckily, neither one of them has anything to hide.
Unless you count the mind blowing sex they had…
Three times all those years ago.
As long as they leave the past where it belongs, they’ll be fine. But with her wearing those tight dresses and him giving her those heated glances, keeping their hands to themselves is proving to be more difficult than either one of them realized.
It won't be long before the paparazzi start to smell smoke, and where there's smoke...
“You are every goal I never knew I wanted.”
I’m a huge Claire Contreras fan, that’s no secret. I pretty much love everything she writes. She writes beautiful books that can move you in many ways and she’s the queen of second chance romances. I’ve loved the previous books in the Heart Series: Kaleidoscope Hearts and Paper Hearts, and Elastic Hearts is not the exception; this book was awesome.
Elastic Hearts is the 3rd and final book in the Hearts Series and it’s Victor’s book. If you’ve read the previous books in the series, Victor is Estelle’s brother and Bean and Jensen’s best friend. If you haven’t, this book can be read as a complete standalone, although I wholeheartedly recommend books 1 and 2 in the series because they’re everything. Now this book is a little different from the previous two. The previous two books have been true second chance stories with a lot of angst in them. This book is lighter and more slow burn, and it’s not a typical second chance, but boy is this book SEXY and HOT! Did I mention it was hot? This is off the charts, scorching hot!!!
“I hadn’t seen him in years, but my body remembered him well. His long hands and the way they’d gripped me. His deep chuckle and the way it had made my heart skip a beat the few times I’d heard it. The way he’d said my name, in a low, muttered, damnation that said he shouldn’t be wanting, let alone doing what we’d done, but couldn’t resist the temptation.”
Victor is a divorce lawyer based in Los Angeles, he is extremely career driven and has no time for love. Nicole was in a high profile marriage to a Hollywood actor and is now getting a divorce. Victor is her divorce lawyer. Nicole and Victor know each other because they had a fling 5 years before, a very hot fling I might add. But Victor ended it when he realized that Nicole’s dad was his boss and mentor. Now 5 years later, they realize that the spark they felt years ago, all that chemistry and sexual tension is still there! But everything is so complicated between them, the stakes are really high, Victor can’t get involved without risking his career and Nicole is not quite divorced and her every move is being scrutinized by the media.
“The woman I would have to let go of if I wanted to keep my career was the same woman I didn’t want to live without.”
I loved both Nicole and Victor. Nicole was so cute and strong, loved her sass and could identify with her struggles and how she owns up to her mistakes. And Victor, oh Victor was so alpha but such a sweetheart inside that though exterior. I absolutely loved their banter and interaction. In typical Claire Contreras fashion her characters are so realistic and approachable. Nicole was a heroine that was strong and likeable in her own right and did not needed saving. Similarly, Victor is another awesome hero that stand by his woman as equals. Although, I might say that my heart still belongs to Jensen, he’s still the one, but now Victor comes in very close second. Speaking of my Jensen, we get to see how the gang is doing and there’s tons of funny situations between them. As with any other Claire book, the writing is absolutely beautiful and the FEELS are ever present. I have to say that I read this one slow and steady because I didn’t want this series to end. But I’m super excited for whatever Claire will bring us next! Needless to say I totally recommend this book and anything by this author.
