REVIEW: Heartbreak Warfare by Kate Stewart and Heather Orgeron

We are celebrating the release of HEARTBREAK WARFARE by Heather M. Orgeron & Kate Stewart! Don't forget to one-click this heart-stopping, emotional story today!


Heartbreak Warfare is the latest novel by Kate Stewart and a new writing partner, Heather Orgeron. It's an angsty read, which if you look at the blurb makes sense, right? As with several of Kate Stewart's recent releases, there's a love triangle, though I think this one goes further than any of the others. So, if you're NOT A FAN of cheating or there being three people in a two people relationship, then this is probably not the book for you. Although, in defense of the characters, there is a situation that makes the cheating thing more palatable than you might suspect...and the way it's handled makes it feel very realistic. It's painful and conflicting and not always fun to read because of the pain and conflict these characters are put through.

If I'm going to be honest, I have very mixed feelings about this novel. I liked the realism, the military and war backdrop, the depiction of the struggles the three of these characters faced, and the resolution. I especially liked how truthful the mental health aspect was written--there were no quick fixes and easy solutions and I think that's something that's hard to accept for all of us. I had a harder time, sometimes, feeling as deeply for them as many other readers seem to feel. Sometimes I felt a little disconnected from the big emotions and there were times when the writing was a little bumpy for me, which is probably to be expected when two writers are blending their styles and voices into one narrative.

Overall, Heartbreak Warfare is getting glowing reviews from seemingly everyone and it's definitely filling a void in the contemporary romance world. Readers are connecting with so many different aspects of this novel which tells me that my disconnect is definitely on me and not on anything else.

Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn't know was that I was breaking mine too.

I thought they’d be enough–my husband and my son. That I’d get home and everything would go back to the way it was . . .

Before the war.
Before the ambush.
Before you.

But, no matter how hard I try, I can’t erase the trauma we shared. I can’t seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours.

The truth is I’m lost without you.

I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I’d face at home.
I know it’s selfish of me to ask, but, please, I have to see you one last time. . .

All my love,
