New Old Loves: Comments That Made Our Week

We at Heroes and Heartbreakers are so proud of and thankful for this wonderful community. Thank you for always adding a little extra sparkle to our week. In honor of Fan Friday, we want to give a special shoutout to a few of our favorite comments, and the readers behind them. We love your work!

*Spoilers ahead for J.R. Ward's The Chosen and Lecia Cornwall's Beauty and the Highland Beast*

BT enjoyed the exchanging of ideas

BT in J.R. Ward’s The Chosen Discussion Thread

Thoroughly enjoyed all the comments and fan theories! Totally agree with Devina coming back and somehow getting mangled into the BDB world. Very exciting and well played by J.R. I shrug at the whole V storyline—it was his and Jane's turn to have a rough patch in their relationship, and we all know he has certain needs; makes sense for him to think about straying. Quinn's reaction was way out of character, but I do believe it was the catalyst needed for Layla to get some backbone. Although I do admit that the happily ever after ending between Blay, Quinn, Xcor, and Layla was too wrapped too neatly. Like, Xcor and Quinn being all buddy buddy over Lyric? WTF—nice, neat, bow. Bleh.

I'm just gonna throw this out, but Saxon and Bitty's uncle. Yep. I said it. There was some obvious chemistry, and attraction (at least from Saxon's end) towards the quite, rugged, thoughtful uncle of Bitty's (what's his name?)—Wouldn't be surprised if he discovers his sexuality being so “young” for a vampire.

And then I thought I had it down, when we introduced the Legacy series—I thought for sure, Axe would somehow fixate on Bitty. Hear me out. Because Axe is into kink and Bitty experienced an abusive childhood, the fit wouldn't be right, but they'd figure it out together, yada yada yada. I thought I had something good there. *shrugs* can't win 'em all.

taragel in The 10 Best Romantic Comedies of All Time!

Two of my faves:

Toooooeeeepiiiick! The Cutting Edge :) Great banter, though they could have had more bonding/romance before the end.

Some Kind of Wonderful is probably my all-time fave. That “Can you deliver the kiss that kills?” scene between Watts and Keith is smoking! Plus, I love a ballsy heroine and a friends-t0-lovers romance.

Ibbitts found a lot to love in this fairytale

Ibbitts in Lecia Cornwall’s Beauty and the Highland Beast Book Club Discussion Thread

I'm usually not a fan of fairy tales, but there's something compelling about this tale in general, and this book in particular. I'm also not a fan of witches, as a rule, but this book, again, proves to be an exception. I really liked “Beauty and the Highland Beast” and will be recommending it to others. I love the way both Fia and Moire show kindness to others, regardless of how they are treated in turn, and the dignity with which they stand up to the opposition they face.

My favorite Fia scene is the first night, when she sings Dair out of the nightmare. My favorite Dair scene was when he realized that, as an experienced seaman, he could overcome any attempt Logan made to prevent him from returning to his home and clan. Both of them were able to overcome great obstacles because they had confidence in themselves.

My only real disappointment was in realizing so early on (Dair's first vision of Jeannie) that Logan was the villian of the piece. It took some of the suspense out of the story for me, but it was just a logical conclusion - Supposition #1: Dair is not mad. Ergo, supposition #2: Who else is going to look just like Jeannie? It had to be her twin.

In the end Fia wasn't a witch and Dair wasn't a beast. I was a bit disappointed that the Sinclair clan didn't have more faith in Dair - and in Chief Padraig - for knowing who the best heir for the clan would be. Fia's relationship with her Father and Sisters was a bit puzzling to me, but I suppose one would be a little mouse if one had no self-confidence.

That “love” would be the catalyst for both Dair and Fia to really begin caring for themselves when they realized that they cared for each other, was like a ... fairy tale.

Tell us— what's your most anticipated book of the summer?
