Publisher's Summary

Handcuffs aren't just part of their job in this sizzling new standalone romance by USA Today best-selling author Stacey Kennedy.

Veteran cop Maddox Hunt is all about the job. Sure, there are women - lots of women, truth be told - but there's no one special. Until a one-night stand from his past, rookie Joss O'Neil, is assigned to his division. Suddenly, all he can think about is her. The scent of her. The taste of her.

Fresh out of field training, Joss has thrown herself into her job, determined to kick-start her career. And while police work has its thrills, her gorgeous new boss is what really gets her pulse pounding. Too bad he's nothing but a distraction. Especially since he's as devastatingly handsome as she remembers, and his sexy smile arrests her heart.

Now that Joss is back in Maddox's life, he has a plan: satisfy her fantasies and fulfill his every dark desire. Nothing is off limits. Her pleasure is the endgame...but even the best-laid plans have a way of falling apart. Despite his best attempts to keep his distance and have things remain only about the pleasure, Maddox soon finds himself breaking the only law he's set for himself. Don't fall in love.

Fun sexy romance

Stacey Kennedy strikes again with Heartbreaker:Filthy Dirty Love, Book One. The chemistry between Koss and Maddox was off the charts from the very start. I thought the story moved well and loved how their relation changed along the well. I also thought the narrstor, Gideon H. Welles did an great job.

seems to have editing issues

I was really into this book but towards the end there were some editing issues. lines were being repeated and it really threw me off to the point where I couldn't finish it. I enjoyed the narration but his female narrations could use a little work but I still enjoyed listening to him and will listen to him again.I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

When you least expect it

Stacey Kennedy gifted me this audio book in a giveaway. Maddox and Joss share one hot as hell encounter, years later after police academy she works under him. Neither want a relationship but they can't fight their attraction. Stacey Kennedy delivers a story that pulls you into the minds of her characters and has you fanning yourself at the heat level. Gideon H Welles is the perfect voice for this book.

Give me more!

From the beginning, I was hooked! This book was a great mix of Story, Love, and Sex. I felt like it had just enough of each to keep me entertained and immersed. The narration was great with Gideon's wonderfully gravelly tough Cop voice. Loved it all!

Note: I received this books in exchange for my unbiased review. This did not affect my opinion of this book.

#bdsm #erotic #romance

I really enjoyed the man voice; so masculine and deep. I just wanted to keep on listening to him. I really enjoyed the story, too. I would even replay it gladly.

Not a Bad Listen

I listened to the Audiobook. The narration was ok.

I don't know how this book may have been different had I read it instead of listened to it. There was something missing for me.

Maddox and Joss initially hook up in the bathroom of a bar. First off, Yuck, but that's just me. Next thing, Jossis sitting in the back of the briefing room. She and Maddox have been avoiding each other for a while.

I can understand jumping ahead a year, but where was the scene when Maddox and Joss discovered they would be working with the one night stand each of them has been thinking about for over a year? What happened to that first contact?

I'm not sure If I stopped paying attention or if the scene ever actually existed in the book.

So they decide to have an FWB relationship with a BDSM twist. I was surprised both of them had enough trust in one another to have that type of relationship. Especially considering that each of them had an issue or two.

I guess the thing that got me the most was I didn't feel any real connection between Maddox and Joss. There was no buildup of sexual tension. I didn't get much chemistry until almost the very end, when they were in the bar with Amelia and Troy.

Maybe it was because their relationship was mostly sexual. They worked together, and they never discussed the job, just the ramifications of their sexual relationship. I think I needed to read about (listen to) more of a relationship build between them.

This was not a bad book. I just needed more. It will not stop me from moving forward reading about or listening to Maddox's best friend, Grey's story.

Hotter than expected!

** I received a free copy of this audiobook and exchange for an honest review. **

I listen to this audiobook knowing nothing about the author and nothing about the story. I wanted to experience it without any preconceived notions. Right from the beginning of the book, it is intense! That intensity continues through every sexual interaction the two main characters have. I truly had no idea which direction this book was going to go and found myself quite surprised while in traffic! But this book isn't all about sex. it's about two damaged human beings trying to find a way to have a relationship with one another and how secrets often keep us from being able to trust others. I really appreciate it. The two main characters entered a relationship with a very clear expectations of what would come out of it. Neither of them tried to force the other to do things or feel things that they did not want to feel or do. Everything was about consent.

I'm making this books sound heavier than it is. It really isn't. I found myself wanting to come back to this book every time I had to stop and actually work or interact with my family. I finished it in just a few days. I enjoyed it and would be interested to listen to other books by this author.

One thing I to know is that this book is completely narrated by a man and his narration does not change between male and female voices. There were times I had to go back 30 seconds to be certain I knew who had been speaking. It's not that big of a deal, but it was annoying at times. Overall, I really enjoyed this audiobook.

enjoyed it

3.5 stars
Maddox and Joss’ story was steamy and enjoyable to listen to. I liked the characters of Maddox and Joss, the chemistry between them, and the way their relationship developed. I found the narrator’s voice to be too soothing to fit how I imagined Maddox. Overall the story was filled with great hot scenes and a decent story.
