The Closer You Come
New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter shines in this Original Heartbreakers tale, featuring a man haunted by memories and the vulnerable girl he will do anything to protect.Tortured by a violent past, ex-con Jase Hollister is looking to start over in a small town. The rugged bachelor suffering from PTSD longs for peace and quiet, always keeping his women at a distanceâand his heart encased in stone. Brook Lynn Dillon is a down on her luck waitress determined to avoid the man every woman in town wantsâincluding her sister. The last thing she needs is his kind of trouble. But his every glance makes her burnâ¦and her resistance is melting fast. The two agree to a one-time fling, not expecting to be forever branded. Now, no matter how hard they try, they can’t keep their hands off each other. But when a secret from Jase’s past comes to light, they’ll have to face a cold, hard truth: it’s more than Jase’s freedom on the line, it’s their hearts.
Gena Showalter is known for her paranormal romances, but I think in âThe Closer You Comeâ she shows perfectly that she can really handle a romance in every kind of setting. I am not sure if it is necessary to mention that her writing style is flawless and the storyline is fluent. What might be really worth a mention is the humor and the dialogues between our leads in this book.Although I must admit that I do not like how they meet and maybe due to this âstartâ I was struggling a little to connect to them in the way I should. Because the actual plot is really good and with another way for them to meet it would have been a 5 star book (I only add this for better understanding) So go ahead and enjoy this great piece :- )
