Quinn has spent her whole life working in her dad's garage, leaving her more comfortable with a carburetor than a curling iron. Her world is turned upside down when her beloved garage is bought by none other than world famous, sexy as sin, custom car builder, Tazen Watts. He's the one man she can't stand...even though he makes her hotter than a high performance engine in top gear.

Tazen has no use for Quinn, at least not professionally, and he's making sure she knows it. But there's a spark between them that she's finding hard to ignore. She's determined to prove her talent is as impressive as her sassy mouth. When she finds out Tazen is hiding a secret that could bring down his career and everyone involved in it, she wonders: is falling for him is going to be work the risk?

Hard To Break is a full-length standalone romance with a HEA.


WOW! I had a fantastic time reading HARD TO BREAK! Since I’ve discovered this author, it has been hit or miss, and let me tell you this was quite the HIT! It was fresh, unique, and extremely sexy. We dive in to the world of fast cars, custom builds, and illegal racing. The sexual tension is at an all time high in Ms. Jewel’s latest standalone in her ALPHA’S HEART series. This heart pounding, exhilarating, and erotic thrill ride will have you on the edge of your seat. This author delivered in a BIG way!

This was a different and all around steamy read for me. HOT mechanics? Yes please! The main characters were fantastic in this. Our male lead, Tazen, is a cocky son of a bitch. He is sexy, and he knows it. He is wealthy, accomplished, and he takes what he wants. His name even SCREAMS arrogance. At the beginning you will LOVE to HATE him, but don’t worry, he grown on you and you will fall for his charms. My favorite character was our female lead, Quinn. She is a bold, strong, confident woman, with a good head on her shoulders. She has been through so much with her family and her family’s business. She has had to grow up fast and took on so much responsibility at such a young age. She didn’t have a normal childhood. When women her age are going out with their friends, seeing movies or partying the night away, she is trying to keep her father’s business afloat. She is a tomboy at heart and she loves hanging out with the guys. I loved her attitude and her sense of loyalty.

When these two get together, their worlds explode. Crude and hilarious banter ensues, and a battle of wills begin. Both are determined and stubborn. Who will break first? Who will give in? With each page turned, the sexual tension kicks up a notch. The simmering connection turns to a full on boil when they get a taste of one another. As the story builds, and as Tazen and Quinn learn more about each other, the hate that they felt for one another slowly fades to a deep and passionate love that they will not be able to deny.

Thank you to Bella Jewel for crafting such a smart, sassy, and steamy romance.
