Nathan Hart is charismatic with a beautiful smile that makes women weak in the knees. A former bad boy with a mysterious past. He was made to be in Hollywood, on the cover of magazines and the star of movies.

He’s what dreams are made of … and tabloid gold.

But there’s more to him that he hasn’t told a soul. Even the gossip columns will never know.

Something that draws me to him unlike anyone has before.
Something that could ruin us both.
He whispers to play along; he promises it will all be alright.

I can’t tell him no, even if I wanted to.
The moment he locked his light blue eyes on me, I was ruined.
I never stood a chance. I only pray our pasts don’t rip us apart.

Heartthrob is just one of six scandalous romances from Best Selling Authors.
Read all about it in Exposé, the gossip column to sink your teeth into.
Each story in the Exposé Collection is a STANDALONE with an HEA.

Heartthrob by Willow Winters started out with a bang and never let up. We are thrown into a story with hot chemistry, a mysterious past and so many feels!

Nathan Hart is the bad boy with so much to hide turned celebrity heartthrob. Woman love him, but the mysterious and quiet actor generally keeps to himself. There has only ever been one person that ever meant anything to him and he pushed her away when she needed him the most.

Harlow May, Hally, has no idea how she got here. All she knows is that HE is here too. The one person who never wanted to see her again. The one person that she cannot forget. Just when she is ready to move forward and find her dream, her past comes crashes back into her life.

Hally and Nathan drove me insane. There was so much push and pull between them. Their chemistry was off the charts. Even those around them could feel their pull to each other. While they attempt to navigate the present, throughout the story we are given glimpse of their past and what drove them apart. Both hid so much, then and now, will they find a way back to each other or is it too late for them?

There is so much I want to say about this book, but not without spoiling it. We are dropped right into the middle of a story. Nathan and Harlow have a secret that tore them apart. Now they are face-to-face again and have no idea how to talk to each other. Their struggle to communicate was their biggest downfall.

Heartthrob was a very emotional read. So much history between Hally and Nathan. Though they tried to stay away from each other, at the end their pull was just too powerful, but were they just too toxic together or could they really make it work? This is a quick read, with lots of emotions. Though the story flowed quickly, you will be intrigued to see what happened between them and how it will all end.

10 Years Ago

She’s always running her fingers through her dirty blonde hair. The simple motion sends the sweet smell of lavender and something else my way. It’s faint, but I know it’s her. It’s something sweet and soothing. If I think about her,
even if I see her across the lunch room or in the school parking lot, I swear I can smell that scent.

I like sitting behind her in geography. I can watch the cute little things she does and it looks like I’m actually paying attention.

This is the only class I haven’t gotten kicked out of this year. The stupid shit doesn’t bother me as much when I can watch her. Even if she never looks at me twice.

The bell rings and the sound rips my eyes away from her and towards the classroom door as a few more students file through. Adam Waynes is the last in and his chair screeches across the floor as he crashes into his seat. He’s loud as fuck and gets all the attention. At the thought, I look to her, to Harlow May expecting her to be watching the spectacle that would usually piss me off, but instead those gorgeous blue eyes are on me. She’s quick to look away, again her fingers flying to her hair and twirling her locks nervously as a bright pink creeps into her cheeks.

She can be shy all she wants, but I caught her. I caught her looking. Even better I made her blush. I did that.

It almost gives me enough courage to pull on her backpack straps as she walks in front of me to leave. I could give it a tug and force her to look back at me, but I don’t. I stay behind like I have for the last few months and let her walk away.

But the next time she looks back at me in geography, she doesn’t avert her gaze when I look back.

And a few days later, she’s the one tugging on my backpack.

I keep telling her I’m not good for her, she doesn’t listen though.

That’s the very thing that will ruin us and we knew it from the start.
