My Rating: 4 stars

Synopsis:
The problem with heartache is that there’s no one-size-fits-all relief package. You can go to classes; you can try to embrace change. But when you wake up at two in the morning, a smile on your face because you’ve dreamt about the could have—the should have—nothing will console you.
Because seconds later, you remember.
And remembering can rip you apart.
***
Kate will do anything for her family. It’s why she took the job with Lee. It’s why she’s attempting to forget her pain. But it's hard to forget, when you're desperate to hold on. Even if Lee Collins is the perfect package.
Lee will do anything for the ones he cares about. It’s why he hired Kate.
It’s why he keeps his secrets; and it’s why he cannot, will not fall in love. Not with Kate—not with anyone.
Ever.
The one thing he can’t forgive.

The one thing she can’t forget

**I received an eARC copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review**

When I first signed up to read this book I didn't realise that it was the third book in a series...xD But to be honest, it didn't even affect me. Sure it would have been nice to know a few things that happened before (I plan on going back and reading the first two) but it wasn't essential. 

I actually really enjoyed this book! I've been slowly starting to steer clear of contemporary books because I've been reading so many of them, but this one actually held my interest for more than half the book. The characters weren't annoying and the PoV change didn't trip me up too much. Normally I don't like alternating PoV because it usually isn't done the right way, but I didn't mind it in this book. I'm pretty sure that had to do with the fact that all of Lee's PoV was in the past and it gave me an insight on why he was the way he was.

And oh my goodness were there quite a few WTF moments! I finished the book while I was in my yearbook class and I literally sat there muttering "what the f***" over and over again. There were so many plot twists that I almost couldn't keep up...but it made it all the more interesting!

Overall I gave The Problem with Heartache 4 out of 5 stars because despite some of the triply plot twists, it was an entrapping book
