Review The Closer You Come, The Original Heartbreakers series by Gena Showalter

Title: The Closer You Come
Author: Gena Showalter
 Series: The Original Heartbreakers
Release Date: March 31st 2015


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.

I've liked Brook Lynn from the prequel novella and I fell for Jase there too.

Their first encounter kinda made me grimace but once the story went on, I got over it.

Thing is, these two are perfect together and, although Brook Lynn was putting up with way too many things from her sister, that changed too. Which is good. And we also got a glimpse of the story that would be with her sister and one of the bad-boy trio. That story will be one hell of a ride, I'm sure of it!

But back to this story. Jase was infuriatingly frustrating, at times, and stubborn but once he pulled his head out of his behind, all was well and progressing. He's protective and alpha, swoon-worthy and, ex-con or not, I'd gladly take him and keep him at my bosom, never letting him go. Because the reason he spent almost a decade in jail? Not many would have done that and he was wrongfully convicted.

We know nada, zilch, zip about the next book, other than who are the main characters and I am so curious about it, since the playboy will find his match!

4 1/2 stars.
