* So heartbreakers... The Urban Dictionary ( defines a heartbreaker as: 1. one who screws you over, is mean to you, and gave you hope but ripped it away either quickly or slowly over a long period of heartbreaking time - usually the one you are most in love with and think you need... 2. A person who can break hearts easily. Because they are so beautiful everyone wants them, but not everyone can have them.; An affectionate way to say somebody is adorable or good looking.; Somebody who breaks or hurts peoples hearts/emotions - "Aww aren't you just the heartbreaker" followed by the pinching of cheeks. The dictionary had more but IMO I felt the first two summed up my thoughts on the matter. Heartbreakers don't necessarily have to be a boy/girlfriend or potential boy/girlfriend they could be anyone you thought you could count on and then found out your couldn't. I've known all and friends who promised things then flaked out; the boyfriend whom I was head over heels for and broke my heart; the cute kids who are termed heartbreakers. So the questions ~ Do you think heartbreakers are just bad boys/girls who can turn into the best heroes/heroines around? Or can they be anybody?

  1. Thanks for the giveaway and participating in the hop!
    I think that Christian Grey from "50 Shades of Grey" is a good example of a heartbreaker. He used and abused Ana at first, but then came to his senses by book two.

  2. Thanks so much for participation!

  3. I think it can be anyone. Everyone has the capacity to hurt others.

  4. Yes I believe they can turn into the best heros/heroines :)
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  5. I think heartbreakers can be anyone. I have to admit that heartbreakers are great wonderful to read about!!!

  6. heartbreakers can be anyone and can be the best people! or the worst ;)


  7. My favorie heartbreaker is Damon from the Vampire Diaries.
    Thanks for the chance!

  8. My favorite heartbreaker is Eric Northman from the Southern Vampire series. Thanks for the giveaway.

  9. I do believe they can become the best heroes/heroines because they have to turn themselves around and lose the heartbreaker title. But honestly I think they can be anybody too. I don't think they have to just be bad boys or bad girls. Sometimes it is just circumstances in a persons life that makes them a heartbreaker because they can't let anyone get close to them. sbereza22(at)gmail(dot)com

  10. heartbreaker can definitely be anybody.


  11. One of my favorites is Justice from Justice by Laurann Dohner. Thank you for the awesome hop and giveaway!!! :)

  12. My favorite part of having a heart breaker is the world class groveling. Todd in Lauren Dane's Laid Bare is my perfect example.

  13. Yeah I really think that think heartbreakers are just bad boys/girls who can turn into the best heroes/heroines around...although I have been guilty of looking at my nieces and nephews and saying "awww you're going to be a little heartbreaker!"
    Thanks for the great giveaway!! So many great prizes!! Happy Valentine's Day!

  14. Heartbreakers can be anyone and they make the best heros/heroines because you hate to love them and love to hate them.

  15. Charlie Hunnam from SOA...a true heartthrob.

  16. they can be anyone male or female if they are shallow they will break your heart
    thanks for the hop

  17. A heart-breaker can be anyone here on the reality plain; however, the really fun folk are found in books where they generally turn into heroes :) Thank you for the fun posts.
