REVIEW + GIVEAWAY: His Jar of Hearts by @SPCervantes

We're celebrating the release of His Jar of Hearts by S.P. Cervantes! 

Title:  His Jar of Hearts (A Broken Fairy Tale #3)
Author: S.P. Cervantes
Age: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release date: December 11, 2014

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?

I've read this whole series from the beginning and I've learned things about myself while reading it. I've learned that love is living, friendships can last for forever if you help nurture them and help them grow, and I've learned that we all need a little plaster in our lives. Read this series and you'll understand.

I've watched Cam and Holden, once high school sweethearts, break up and get back together many years later. I watched Dave die and Jess mourn but also learn to love again. Now, in His Jar of Hearts, I get to watch my book husband, Joey, the fire fighter playboy find his one true love.

Joey McMillan is the epitome of a player. He's sexy, well built, with blonde hair and blue eyes, tats, and has an arrogance about him. He doesn't do relationships. He loves em and leaves em. Though it's getting more and more difficult in their little town to someone he hasn't slept with.

"I'm Joey Fucking McMillan. I don't get excited over a girl."
For years it's just been him and the gang, the Goodfellas, and even though Jess' cousin, Kat, has been around the circle, she was never really in the circle. Sure, she was included but not an original. Joey's always flirted and stolen little moments with Kat but it can never be anything more. He's thought about more but he's not ready and Kat's definitely not the loving and leaving kind. He knows with just the right touch and he will be hooked. Joey doesn't do hooked. Since Dave died, though, Joey's outlook on life has changed a bit. He's grown up and started seeing that maybe he should settle down. Can he convince Kat that he's serious and can hold a meaningful relationship? Or will she ever be able to trust a man with a past like his?

"She knows all the ugly about me. Now all I have to show her is the good. It's a little dusty, but it's there."
Kat had always loved flirting and messing with Joe but she vowed a long long time ago she would never be a notch in his bedpost or another heart in His Jar of Hearts. She's finally broken things off with that douchebag Kevin but he keeps coming around and she keeps going back. She wants to find someone to give her a reason not to go back to Kevin. Could Joey possibly be that guy?

"I've never wanted to be Joey McMillan's one night stand. I've only ever wanted to be his happily ever after."
Joey finally breaks down one night after a couple glasses of wine and a Game of Thrones episode and asks her out. Kat isn't so sure what she should say bc she doesn't want him to think if she says yes that means he can get her into the bed.

"I don't know, Joey. I'm afraid if we cross that line, things with us will never be the same again. I don't want to be a test."
Well after agreeing to one date and some conditions, Kats already seeing a different side to Joey. He's not the same playboy all the other girls get. He actually has a soft and vulnerable side to him, too. But we all know skeletons like to jump out of closets at the most inopportune moments and for Joey and Kat it's no different.

Can they overcome Joeys past and Kats ex? Will Joey really get his happily ever after with Kat?

There are several emotional moments in the book. Many relate to the previous books in the series but there is a very frightening and bone chilling incident that will make you shudder, cry, and panic. It's very unexpected but necessary because out of the darkness comes the light that is shed on our lives and makes us rethink ourselves and our priorities and for Joey and Kat it's the same way.

I am super sad that this series is finished. I adore each and every one of these characters. I love what I've learned from them. I cherish these books, the stories, the life lessons, and I cherish my friendship with Susan that's emerged from the books. I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us all next. Whether it be YA Fantasy or New Adult Romance I will definitely be reading it.
