Title:  His Jar of Hearts (A Broken Fairy Tale #3)
Author: S.P. Cervantes
Age: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release date: 12/11/14

Joey McMillian is man that everyone loves. Women fall at his feet everywhere he goes, and men want to be him. Working at the fire department in the small shore town where he grew up, staying close to the only constant in his life, his best friends, has been all Joey thought he wanted in life. While his friends have all found love and started families, Joey bounces from woman to woman, never opening himself up to the opportunity of loving someone and being truly loved in return.

Kat Pierce is a fiercely independent thirty something who knows Joey’s womanizing ways far too well. When she lands a teaching job and moves into her cousin’s house at the shore, she finds herself with Joey more than she would like. There’s always been an attraction between the two of them, but Kat knows better than to act on her feelings. Her heart has been broken before, and she knows Joey is a one way ticket to having it broken again.

Will Joey and Kat find the love they are looking for?


4.5 out of 5 stars

I stumbled upon The Broken Fairytale Series when I first read Wished Away.  I immediately fell in love with this group of friends and never expected the emotional journey that ensued.  It's always the ones which take you by surprise that end up being the best reads.

For me Joey always came across at the life of the party.  He was fun, good looking and made it seem as though he didn't have a care in the world.  But on the other hand he was a solid support.  The glue who helped hold his friends lives together when they seemed to spin out of control.  He may be a womanizer, who doesn't want commitment but he will ALWAYS put the ones he loves first.

Throughout the other two books I suspected there may be something more to Kat and Joey than just friendly banter and getting to know these two as individuals and watch them risk their hearts for one another made for a really great book.  I loved watching Joey struggle with admitting his feelings but nothing made me more proud than seeing him go after what he wanted without a second guess.  I loved watching him turn from playboy to man.  He's the kind of man who cherishes and appreciates what he has.  He may not have any experience in being a "boyfriend" but he completely nailed the role.

Kat on the other hand has always known about her feelings for Joey, she just isn't willing to be another notch on his belt and has grown to love their friendship, but when it matters is she willing to risk their friendship for possibly the greatest love of her life or will her fear keep her from missing out.  She's stuck in a on again off again cycle with the man who was her first love and cutting those kind of ties, stepping away from what's comfortable isn't easy and SP Cervantes captures the essence of this perfectly with Kat.  Without a doubt you'll be able to relate with Kat's character.

I have to admit I did wonder where SP Cervantes would take these two characters,  what kind of "drama" they would face and I have to say their trials and tribulation period didn't disappoint.  SP Cervantes once again tackles a touch subject and manages to shed light on it in a very real and refreshing way.

If you're taking the time to read this review then I encourage to give the Broken Fairy Tale series a chance.  SP Cervantes has created some pretty unique stories and you're missing out if you don't see what all the fuss is about.  While Wished Away is without a doubt my favorite of the series, I still really enjoyed Dust to Dust and His Jar of Hearts (Joey will have women everywhere swooning, I know I was!).
