Book Review: The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler

Book Description:

Jude has learned a lot from her older sisters, but the most important thing is this: The Vargas brothers are notorious heartbreakers. She’s seen the tears and disasters that dating a Vargas boy can cause, and she swore an oath—with candles and a contract and everything—to never have anything to do with one.

Now Jude is the only sister still living at home, and she’s spending the summer helping her ailing father restore his vintage motorcycle—which means hiring a mechanic to help out. Is it Jude’s fault he happens to be cute? And surprisingly sweet? And a Vargas?
Jude tells herself it’s strictly bike business with Emilio. Her sisters will never find out, and Jude can spot those flirty little Vargas tricks a mile away—no way would she fall for them. But Jude’s defenses are crumbling, and if history is destined to repeat itself, she’s speeding toward some serious heartbreak…unless her sisters were wrong?
Jude may have taken an oath, but she’s beginning to think that when it comes to love, some promises might be worth breaking.

Book Review:

Jude was warned about the Vargas Brothers, that they're heart breakers. At least that's what her three older sisters said. So, when Jude decides to help her dad fix up his old motorcycle, she's forced to have the help of Emilio Vargas. But as the days go on, Jude wonders if Emilio isn't like the other Vargas boys.

I acquired "The Book of Broken Hearts" at my local library, and I was excited to get started. This isn't a typical love story, which I liked. I enjoyed the father-daughter relationship between Jude and Papi, it gave the book a heart warming feel, (which made my cup of coffee taste even better). Emilio's character to me was real, and I loved it. I honestly cannot not like this book more. A five star book.
I can't wait to read more of Sarah Ockler's work.
