The Closer You Come by Gena Showalter
Release Date - April 2015
Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
He's been through jail and now all Jase Hollister wants is to live peacefully with his friends (once all foster brothers). He has no room in his life for women, especially not one very flirtatious woman and her quieter, very sexy sister.
Brook Lynn Dillon is trying to keep her life together, but her older sister's partying and one-night-stand ways make that very tough. Brook's two jobs keep the bills paid, but when she loses one of them because of her sister's lack of work ethics, Brook is in a panic. Jase Hollister offers her the job she needs, but how can she work for a man who makes it clear he wants no woman in his life?
The Closer You Come starts off the Original Heartbreaker series with a bang. I fell in love with Jase and his friends, and definitely loved the pairing of him and Brook Lynn. Both shelter their hearts, which makes it fun to see if they'll realize they're perfect for each other.
As is true of any romance, there are the typical hurdles that the pair must overcome. I've read so many romances now that I come to expect them. Given that, one character who is introduced is very likely to become the heroine in a future Original Heartbreakers book, so I'll be interested to see if the author can change my opinion about her.
