New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter introduces the Original Heartbreakers, where three not-quite-reformed bad boys are about to meet the women who will bring them to their knees.
Just released from prison, Jase Hollister has a dark and twisted past. And now, he has only one goal: stay out of trouble. Strawberry Valley, Oklahoma, sounds like the perfect place for him and his two brothers-by-circumstance to settle down and live a nice, simple life. But model citizen isn’t exactly this rugged bachelor’s default setting—especially when it comes to a certain hot-blooded Southern beauty…
Brook Lynn Dillon has always been responsible. Not that it’s done her much good. The down-on-her-luck waitress is broke, single and fun-deprived. Until Jase comes along. He is dangerous, stunningly protective, breathtakingly sexy and as tempting as sin, and the passion sizzling between them is undeniable. But can it melt her resistance? After all, the right kind of trouble might be just what they both need.
So.. I’ve been reading YA for so many years now, every once in a while I read some Adult Paranormal or some New Adult, but I haven’t read any Adult Contemporary for years. But then… Gena Showalter wrote this new Adult Contemporary series that I just couldn’t pass on it…
Go Girl – I do love me some strong, determined *don’t give me your BS* heroine!
Brooke Lynn is exactly this: Strong willed (yes you can also call her sometimes stubborn) and independent woman who wouldn’t let anyone push her around and doesn’t need a man to run her life. She’s alone with her older sisters, but it’s Brooke Lynn who cares for her, who is the responsible one and who sees that they both have a job, a roof and some food! I loved her strength so much – she was someone to admire and cheer for! Of course, exactly these qualities made it tough for the bad boy to win her over…
Oh the Glorious Bad Boy!
Jase is the ultimate bad boy, just released from prison and now moved with his best friends in a small town to find back tom himself. He truly served all clichés but in a wonderful sexy and thrilling way. And of course, inside there is a soft boy who falls so very hard for our Brooke Lynn that he becomes all protective and charming!
This sexy romantic and just what you’ll need!
The Closer You Come by Gena Showalter is a touchingly sexy read that comes with a lot of heart, a lot of smexy times and some great protagonists! If you love small town romances, with strong female leads and the ultimate bad boy who needs to be tamed, then this the book for you!
And the Prequel – The One You Want is currently free on Amazon
So my friends, do you also love the small town romance with the bad boy???? For me this is a concept that just never gets old!
