5.0 out of 5 stars Yummy Reissue 29 May 2008
Format:Paperback
Heartbreakers is a reissue of 'Treat Her Right' and 'Mr. November', the second and third books in the Men to Rescue series. The first is 'Caught In The Act' -which has been reissued in the book Enticing.

The Men to Rescue series consists of three friends Mick (an undercover policeman), Zack (a paramedic), and Josh (a firefighter). In Treat Her Right, Zack meets his new sexy long-legged next door neighbor. He is instantly aroused by her and at the same time appalled. For Wynn is one big loud and in your face woman. Not exactly someone who could be considered mommy material for the widower Zack's daughter. And he's looking for a wife -but Wynn is not it. On the other hand, Wynn is instantly smitten and is not taking no for an answer and really *works it* to get her man.

In Mr. November, Josh is the one firefighter who has refused to model for a calendar for charity. For some reason the ladies man doesn't want to feel like a piece of meat. Amanda, a straitlaced beauty, who is promoting the calendar pulls out all the stops to get him to sign on. Only Josh wants a date and maybe something more. But Amanda has some serious sexual hangups and emotional issues from a long ago tragedy. She doesn't do relationships. Now all Josh has to do is to convince the woman he loves to take a chance on him.

Get you hands on these two oldies but goodies. This is why Foster became a popular romance author -unique heroines, sexy-as-hell hero's, realistic plot lines and tons of sexual tension with just the right amount of love scenes for each couple. Just a great book to add to my collection. On par with the Buckhorn series as a comparison.

My other Foster favorites are-
Enticing (Casey / Caught in the Act)- specifically Casey
When Good Things Happen To Bad Boys
A Very Merry Christmas (Twins' Bad Boys)
Bad Boys Of Summer (Twins' Bad Boys)

2.0 out of 5 stars One-dimensional and insulting to the heroine 27 April 2010
By tubularrose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am not a snob about romantic fiction or "chick lit." I enjoy a good story and a happy ending. But I do like a story that is about something more than just the romance. The hero and, especially, the heroine need to have lives and something going on in them, besides their relationship with each other.

This book, the first I've read by the author, is missing that element, at least as far as I read (halfway). We are told that the heroine is a physical therapist and has her own business. Surely that has taken some effort and determination to achieve. She has just bought her first house and is excited about it. But that is as much about her life as we learn. The hero has a daughter. We are told over & over that he's a great father and a stand-up guy. He's a paramedic and at least we hear a little bit about his job--that it's physically demanding. And we know he has friends. But that's about it.

Beyond that, the plotline is: he wants to get married to have a mother for his daughter. He wants someone feminine and sweet. He disapproves of the heroine because she is "loud" and "bossy" and "too big." We see no evidence of the "loud" and "bossy" other than that she argues with her brother in a good-natured way on moving day, and she has a perfectly normal level of assertiveness (and actually low self-esteem--she never tells the guy to shove off when he insults her, which any normal woman would). Never mind that she is kind, beautiful, accomplished, funny, and financially secure. She basically has to beg him to go to bed with her. Presumably his sexual attraction gradually allows him to see that she is "worthy."

What kind of a lesson do we take away from this? She is almost groveling for his approval and attention through much of the book. I'd have said, pick someone who is crazy about you for who you are. Not someone you have to "win over."

There are better authors out there for a fun, romantic, sexy read. Try one of those instead.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reading! 14 May 2014
By LAS Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
What’s not to like about a fireman and an EMT? Especially when they are die hard bachelors who don’t have time to pursue love and fate decides to send them their exact opposites to tease and confound them. I loved how the two men were so different and the women that tamed them were unique and fun to get to know. Having two fun stories in a row is the perfect weekend treat and I enjoyed every moment because the one thing Ms. Foster knows how to do is write romance.

The first story was Treat Her Right which follows a man who works grueling hours as an EMT. His free time is spent exclusively with one woman, his four year old daughter, Dani. The author makes it very clear early on that Zack’s main love of his life is his daughter. Their dialogue and interaction was cute, oftentimes funny and it gave the hero’s character emotional depth. It’s Dani that breaks the ice with the new neighbor and once that door was opened, it was a wonderful journey of discovery.

Wynn is a unique heroine. She’s tall, she’s rough and she has some wicked self-defense moves. She uses her techniques on Zack much to his chagrin and my delight. I love how Ms. Foster gave her heroine unruly hair and I laughed out loud when I met her parents for the first time. It was comedic and charming and Wynn ends up being perfect for Zack. Of course, he fought it like a stubborn bachelor would. It was Dani who recognized the possibilities that Wynn represented and she liked them, a lot. Kids are smart that way.

The camaraderie between Zack, Mick and Josh were pure entertainment. Throw in Wynn’s eccentric but well-meaning parents and the author presented a wonderful backdrop community to support Zack and Wynn’s romance. Add in the other muscle guys and there were many moments of ear to ear grins.

When Zack and Wynn finally get to scratch the sensual itch, it was very steamy. The hammock scene was hot and the hot tub scene was sexy and cute too. The physical side of their romance was well written and very romantic. I liked how Ms. Foster wrapped up the story because it made me smile. I enjoyed myself immensely reading Treat Her Right.

The second story was Mr. November. It made all the sexy hot posters of bare chested firemen in turnout gear that I’ve ever seen come to life in glorious complexity. Josh was the playboy in the Zack’s story but this time around he’s found a lady who confounds him, challenges him and confuses the heck out of him. What kind of woman can make a fancy free bachelor toe the line?

Amanda, the calendar organizer, is Josh’s Achilles heel. She is the one with the issues and they are a real stumbling block to romance – as far as she is concerned. She is hard on herself but her standoffish attitude doesn’t protect her from Josh. I liked seeing her emotional growth under his care. Of course his ‘care’ isn’t the normal kind, which confuses her and has the heroine bemused much of the time. His tenderness, his seduction techniques and his perseverance wears her down so she eventually shares with the hero her internal pain. It’s Josh’s reaction that has her daring to hope in the impossible. I liked the dance between the two as they got to know each other and I felt it was the strongest appealing aspect of the story.

Whereas with Zack’s story the sex occurred early on in the tale, with Josh it was a slow, simmering buildup that had me flipping the pages in earnest. What was Josh going to have to do or say to convince Amanda to take a chance on him and on their budding relationship? The answer was very romantic, yet I imagine very painful for Josh. He really showed his heroic colors in this story for sure, most certainly his patience and commitment to loving Amanda. How can a book get any more romantic that that?

The epilogue wrap up was sweet, all-encompassing and satisfying. I love a good happy ever after.

Heartbreakers is a must have for fans of Ms. Foster. It has everything I love about her books; sexy alpha men, strong female heroines and delightful emotional characterizations that make me care about them, enough to make me cheer and get giddy happy when the romance comes to fruition. Even though it’s a two book novel, it was a fast read because it flowed so well, the dialogue was awesome and the dynamics between the primary characters and secondary characters were so well grounded yet unique and entertaining. I completely enjoyed myself while reading this book and I definitely recommend it to romance readers everywhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong with Lori Foster 25 Oct 2013

I don't think I've read a book by this author that I didn't like. These two stories although short were great, and while I felt a little more connected to Zack I liked Josh's story more. Maybe it was because there was an Epilogue. Either way these are great reads that you'll surely enjoy!

Good stories. Well written and interesting. Lori Foster books are the ones you just can't put down. They are heartwarming and sexy at the same time.
