"Known for her charming beach reads." --Kirkus Reviews

Relationship Status: Complicated

Professional baseball player Halo Todd doesn't like failure, but he can never turn down a challenge. Especially when there's a pretty woman involved. How else would he end up dressed as a rooster, helping a complete stranger compete on a wacky game show? Even when they're eliminated after the first round, Halo isn't about to lose the girl…

Alyn is stunned when gorgeous, generous Halo whisks her off for a dream vacation to the beach--she's been let down by friends and even family so many times, she's lost count. Later, he offers to lend a hand getting her vintage shop up and running. But his constant--and ridiculous--purchases are the last thing she needs. How can she convince the stubborn man that she doesn't need his help--not when all she wants is his heart…

My Thoughts

No Breaking My Heart  is the fifth book in the Barefoot William series by Kate Angell. I have not read any books either in this series, nor by Kate Angell yet. but I was pleasantly surprised by No Breaking My Heart. It was a quick, fun read that made me smile and laugh from start to finish. Which is exactly what I was looking for. Each of the books in the Barefoot William series can be read as standalones. I had no problem jumping right into this story. Each of the books follows a different couple.

No Breaking My Heart is Alyn and Halo’s story. And I really liked the two of them, but what I found really interesting was that there was also a secondary couple forming in the story. Landon and Eden. I’m not sure if this is typical in this series, if there is the base set up for the next book and couple it will feature, or if that was unique to this book in the series. If it is a common element, I would really like to go back and read the other books to see how their stories interwove. (or if they did.) So I am not sure if I would recommend that you read this series in order or out of order. (if you have read this series, and can let me know if the secondary couple element was unique to this book or in the whole series?)

No Breaking My Heart was a fun read. That was what I liked most about this story. It was just lighthearted, fun. And it made me laugh. Alyn and Halo cracked me up. From the way that they met, to their interactions- I loved how funny they were! Both of them are just a tad stubborn. Not enough to be annoying, but enough to notice. It worked for their dynamic though. Overall, I really enjoyed this story from start to finish. It was a quick read that will transport you to the beach for lighthearted fun for an afternoon.

    Sometimes you just need light-hearted and fun books to take you away from reality for awhile and brighten your day. I think i’ll have to check out these books when I need that kind of reading time. Thanks for the review!

    What a beautiful and sweet cover photo! (*swoony sigh*)
    I have noticed that you have a certain fearlessness when it comes to diving in mid-series– one that I kind of, sort of, envy– just a little bit! 🙂 Even if it’s stated that each book can be read on its own, I feel an itch of orderliness, so to speak– to start from Page One of Book One. (Book One is often free, so there’s also that…)
    But as I’m new to reading Romance, I’m having to warm up to the idea of reading [from] series. Reading your reviews has been helpful for me, in that I’m gradually getting used to the idea that I’m free to pick and choose what ~I~ want to read… even if it is Book 4 or 5 or 2.
    So, I just wanted to reflect on what it’s been like for me to read your reviews. …Empowering! Yes! 🙂
    And, thank you– again– for another lovely review.
