Great story with a lovely message, never give up on love.

The characters are all delightful, I'm sure women will be able to understand Rachel's hesitation and initial cynical feelings regarding love. Her friends remind her to keep her heart open and luckily she listens. You root for Rachel from the start. Despite her tragic past, she forges on in an inspiring manner. Mason, intelligent but not too bright in the relationship and love department. With his past, I felt for his reticence and need for taking things slow. His patience with Rachel is endearing. These two respect each other's past as they build a foundation to love and trust again, their communication is awesome, especially when trouble visits. Of course among heroic friends we have two villainous players you love to hate.

Great story and Peterson keeps you guessing at the final outcome. Full of ups and downs, high and lows mimicking any romantic relationship. Fun story all around, great theme with adorable characters.

Rachel Thomas has not had much luck in the love department. It seems that every man she has loved has cheated on her and then has gone on to MARRY the women that they have cheated with! Talk about a slap in the face to any woman - I would probably swear off dating for the rest of my life at that rate!

Then one night, they he is, Mr. Mason Conner.

He checks several boxes are on her list. He's handsome, has a great job and is kind to her. What more could she ask for right? She really does feel like he is too good to be true, and after her past relationships who wouldn't be?

Then it happens, Mason's Ex comes back into the picture and she comes back in FULL FORCE.

The ups and downs and twists and turns will have you wondering till the last page what is going to happen!

Will Rachel give her heart to Mason 100%, you will have to read and see!

Love chick lit? Then this is a must-add to your to-read list! When we first meet Rachel, she's recently out of a relationship that's gone sour. I think most of us girls can relate to Rachel and her apprehension about opening her heart to someone new. It's always a risk, and Rachel just doesn't want to get hurt again. When she encounters Mason Conner at a night club, she's attracted to him and curious about him, but then does that thing I'm sure many of us have been guilty of: gives into nerves and fear, backs away, and turns him down. Yep. Completely relatable.

But Mason is intrigued, and Rachel has two best friends who truly care about her and look out for her. Because of one of those friends, Mason has a way to contact Rachel and he woos her until she agrees to go out with him. During the course of their courtship, we see Rachel grapple with old fears and insecurities, as well as define what she will and won't stand for. She also has to deal with an interesting twist involving a character who is completely crazy-cakes, making for a page-turning read to find out what happens next and whether or not she will truly give her heart a break and let herself fall in love.

The characters are fleshed out and true-to-life, and so are the romantic curveballs. I received this book in exchange for an honest review, and I'm glad I got to read it. Overall, this was a really fun read, and I hope to see more from this author.

I'm a huge Sex and the City fan. And this book made me think of that show. I absolutely couldn't put this book down. For a debut book, I think Helen Peterson did a wonderful job!

I envy the relationship that Rachel, Monica and Kat share. It is something to see how they all three rally around each other when one of them is going through a crisis. Not even the men in their lives could get in between that relationship.

And boy, Emily and Sydney were two characters that you just love to hate. Both of these two were something else. Talk about keeping you on your toes. These two did a great job of keeping Rachel on hers for sure.

I highly recommend this book. I'm very glad I was able to read this in exchange for my review. I hope to get the privilege of reading more of Helen Peterson's work in the future.

n her debut novel, Give Your Heart A Break, author Helen Peterson weaves a lighthearted tale about the trials and tribulations of romantic relationships and friendship. This entertaining story follows the year long dating journey of New York City advertising executive Rachel Thomas.

Told in the first person narrative, Rachel takes the reader along on her dating journey to find Mr. Right. With a terrible track record of ex-boyfriends who all cheated on her and found their "right one" after breaking up with her, Rachel is tired of trying and getting her heart broken .... that is until she meets sexy attorney Mason Conner at Kiss Crush, a local NYC nightclub. With best friends Kat, Monica, and James in her corner, can Rachel let down her walls long enough to give her heart a break?

Give Your Heart A Break was such a fun chick lit story to read! I really enjoyed the mixture or humor, drama, friendship, and romance that intertwined within the storyline. Author Helen Peterson easily draws the reader into Rachel's story, you can't help but feel for Rachel as her dating trials and tribulations take her on a bumpy year long journey to find romance, and a chance to make the choice to not give up on love.

Not only does the reader get to follow Rachel and Mason on their romantic journey with its drama, obstacles, and bumps along the way (like Mason's crazy stalker ex-girlfriend), they also get to follow the lives of Rachel's best friends Kat, Monica, and James. I really enjoyed the friendship that these besties shared, with all the personal dramas and ups and downs in their lives, they always had each other's back and showed what true friendship is really all about.
