“He’s infuriating. A backstabber wrapped up in pretty packaging. And I know better than to unwrap that present.”

From the moment Tess sees the new guy at work, she feels the pull towards him. But then he opens his mouth. And reveals himself as an arrogant jerk, intent on making her work life hell.

Avoiding Damian is the safest bet, but Tess has never been one to walk away from a fight. If he wants a war, he can have one. And he should be prepared to lose.

Because Tess built her real estate career to protect what’s left of her family. And no arrogant jerk is going to take it from her. No matter how good he looks in a suit.

Open Home, Closed Heart is a full-length standalone sequel to the Hawaiian Heartbreak trilogy. Intended for readers over 18 due to explicit sexual content.

(Hawaiian Heartbreak #4)

Open Home, Closed Heart (Hawaiian Heartbreak #4)They say love and hate are two emotions that are closer than we think. When the arrogant new guy struts into Tess’ real estate office, ready to become the number one seller, at first look, Tess is impressed, and then he came gunning for her sales an her status in the office.

Damian is a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants, even backstabbing and undermining Tess. The line has been drawn in the proverbial sand and Tess has no plans on losing to the hot guy who thinks he is the god of home sales. For Tess, her career has been what she needed to re-build her life, but Damian has a secret, too and only when Tess overhears what it is, does she consider trying to play nice…too bad he is so full of himself.

Libby Cole is back with another entry in her Hawaiian Heartbreak series and the third best thing about Open Home, Closed Heart is that it can be read as a standalone. The second best thing is how Ms. Cole has honed her craft and gone with just the right amount of light-hearted banter, quips and barbs and that ever-present heated attraction. Reason number one-the characters, themselves! Tess is a strong-willed, gorgeous woman who knows how to play the sales game, making a name in the industry for herself. Damian, comes on as a bit of a jerk, okay, a huge jerk, but underneath it all is this adorable and sweet guy who has too much on his plate to handle.

Looking for a fun read, with some spice and verbal sparring? Like a hate to love situation that makes you smile? I’m thinking Libby Cole has it right here and it will make a perfect summer read!

I received an ARC edition from Libby Cole in exchange for my honest review.



  1. This sounds like my kind of book! Love dialogue with lots of banter and barbs, back and forth. I also love the hero's name, Damian. Good luck with your new release!

    1. Hey Hebby! These two are a riot at times, although I have to say, Damian was a jerk in the beginning! Thank you always stopping by!
