Mickey Hart doesn’t do one-night stands. Until she wakes up in a luxury penthouse. With nothing but a t-shirt and no idea whom it belongs to.
Enter Cale Windermere. Driven. Ambitious. Successful. And so gorgeous he could've walked straight out of a romance novel...
Except I can’t walk.
Not that it ever stops me from getting what I want.
And I want her.
Even if she's keeping secrets.
That could tear me to f*cking shreds.
Warning: Strong language, mature content, drama, and angst included. Shirt sold separately. This novel is an adult contemporary romance featuring a disabled hero who (still) happens to be a rich and sexy alpha male with a potty mouth.

Hart Broken is the first book in the Cale & Mickey series by Annie Arcane. It is the first book of hers I have read, but I can guarantee it won't be the last. I LOVED THIS BOOK! Mickey is getting over a break up with an unfaithful fiance, and very rarely drinks. Because of this, she is a bit of a lightweight and usually ends up doing something she regrets. However, in this instance, her drinking leads her to the man she didn't even knew she wanted. Cale is a paraplegic who has his own story to contend with. Perhaps, somewhere in the middle, these two can help to heal each other by falling in love.
I LOVED THIS BOOK! It is heartwarming, heartbreaking, full of hope, raw emotion, and sorrow. Seriously, there is a whole gamut of emotions going on and I can't even figure out which was written best! The point of views change, and you occasionally get parts where Mickey or Cale is speaking directly with the reader, but somehow, it all just fits together. This IS the first book in a series, so don't expect a HEA in this book. You do get a HFN though, which is good enough to tide me over until I can read the next book along.
Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, this book doesn't hold back, but will draw you in and leave you wanting more. Absolutely recommended by me, and in case you haven't realised yet... I LOVED THIS BOOK!

Annie doesn’t like long walks on the beach, getting dolled up, or HEA endings with a boringly perfect hero. She’d much rather be rock climbing, shooting guns, or ending on cliffhangers with a deliciously imperfect hero. And hugs. She likes hugs. She also has a B.Sc. in Biology and feels kinda sorta weird referring to herself in 3rd person.
