Then Tellie lost part of her memory. She believed she was J.B.'s faithful sidekick. Even he couldn't be so heartless as to push Tellie aside, and so he played the role of friend...until friendship turned to something else, something so much deeper than a heartbreaker like J.B. ever intended. He was hooked.
Then Tellie's memory returned.

If you believe in emotional abuse this is the book for you. It is classic sick behavior. The author crafted the heroe to be unredeemable. He never took resposibility...it was her innocence and inexperience that forced him to be cruel and destructive to a vunerable, sad girl. There is no "they lived happily ever after" here. Pass this one by.
Heartbreaker is definitely typical Diana Palmer, although I found the hero a bit less likeable than most. Truthfully his reasoning for treating the heroine so badly was lacking at best. All this for me could be overlooked if not for the fact that the narrator sounded like she was all of 12.
In comparison to some other books, this narrator doesn't even attempt to change voice or inflections to denote other characters so basically it sounded like Telly all through out. Also, I am sure the choice was made to enhance Palmer's heroine's innocence, but her childlike voice was a bit "icky" during the romance scenes especially the ones with sexual descriptions. In the future maybe the narration should be shared by a female and male or someone who is more adept at voices and doesn't sound like maybe she should be reading Harriet The Spy.
The story is fantastic. The reader sounds young and it takes away from the story slightly. But overall, the story is good enough to carry on it's own.
Diana Palmer and romance go hand-in-hand. If you love her stories, this one is worth the "listen". Like other romance stories, the plot may come off far-fetched at times, but it serves it purpose of providing entertaining and a welcome break from reality. It's a short book, worth the time.
