The Closer You Come by Gena Showalter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
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 distance—and his heart encased in stone.
Brook Lynn Dillon is a down on her luck waitress determined to avoid the man every woman in town wants—including her sister. The last thing she needs is his kind of trouble. But his every glance makes her burn…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.
So this book was okay for me...I wanted to love it but resoundingly I just didn't flove it!! I put it down so many times and kept picking it up that I felt kind of bad for doing it because I love this author and I love her books but I think it was because I read this out of order...maybe?? Hopefully?? I don't know. It picked up for me about 2 thirds of the way through and then I was a happy girl. I just didn't feel like I connected to the heroine. I connected fine to the hero, but the heroine I had a hard time with. Will I read the other in the series I missed which I think is the third? Yes ma'am!!
Otherwise, this was an okay book for me but not awesomeness personified.
