I’m warned that Carter Hayes is heartless.
He’s part of the Screw Crew.
He’ll just use you and leave you.
He’s ruthless and always gets what he wants.
Just look for the trail of broken hearts and dreamy sighs and you’ll find him.
“Hot as sin, Carter.”
I don’t have time to fall head over heels for any guy. Besides, he’d never notice someone like me. I have a three step plan. Get through college. Get a job. Get my sister out of the hell hole I left her in. That’s all I have time for.
That’s until I hear of the betting pool the guys started. Whoever screws me first gets the money. The moment Carter looks at me, I know it’s only because of the bet.
I tell myself our first kiss is only for show.
I hate my heart for falling for his irresistible charm.
For one foolish moment, I actually want him to be my first earth-shattering love. All it takes for me to give in is a little attention, a cocky smile, and a fake promise of a happily-ever-after.
When I’m surrounded by crumpled sheets and the smell of sex, I realize I let him have me for four hundred dollars.
To save what little pride I have left, I pretend it didn’t mean anything, that he’s just one last screw before we all leave college.
I’ve spent the last four years lying to myself. When I’m ready to take the final step of my plan, and save my sister, guess who walks through my front door?

Brilliant start to a new series and so different from Michelle's previous books. Fans of L.J Shen's Hot holes will love this.
Wow! I loved Heartless it took my breath away.
It was everything I loved, enemies to lovers, Secret baby, Insta love, second chance romance and in the mix fan me down hot with great characters. It was like eating my favourite cake with my choice toppings.
Della hasn't had it easy life, she's studying hard at college after losing both her mother and father and taken in by a woman who she now looks at like a mother who also takes care of her younger sister while Della has the chance to get her qualifications at college.
Della shares an apartment with other girls but doesn't go out partying or socialising she study's and works at a diner as a waitress, she is away from home and there for one reason and that's to complete her courses, get a good job and be able to look after herself and her sister.
Della's first encounter with what the girls call the screw crew is in the diner where she works and you could say it doesn't go down well. Della has heard the rumours about the boys and the girls saying they want to be part of the boys screw crew, a notch on their bed post as though it's something to brag about and she has no time or respect for any of that.
While serving the guys, a bit of banter and flirting, the guys realise she doesn't fall for their charm easily and they make a bet that they can bed her the bets go up to $400.00 to who can get her first, this may have been said in jest but Della is more determined than ever to stay away from them.
You quickly learn that rumours are simply that, just rumours and the guys come to Della's rescue more than once.
Carter Hayes has an instant attraction to Della which annoys him, he is determined not to be one of those guys who fall for a girl and get hurt in the process like his dad did, so what does he do? he plays the mean card to protect himself.
The chemistry is hot, I loved the gradual melting, the moments of defeat, the submission and surrendering where Carter stops fighting his feelings to stay away and then the burn returns again when Carter and Della become reunited again years later.
I loved all the guys and I can't wait for more in this series, I didn't want it to end.
This story goes from the last college year to 4 years later when Carter is CEO of his fathers company. Della may not of believed in fairy-tales but she goes from rags to living the life of a princess with her swoon worthy King.
