Publisher's Summary

For makeup artist Grace Barrett, Hollywood isn't the land of golden opportunity. It's the land of difficult divas, cheating boyfriends and unemployment. So when her great-aunt offers her a free place to stay in Jackson Hole, Grace thinks she'll spend a little time in the sticks to figure out her life, and then move somewhere exciting to live out her dreams. But it turns out that there are a few more thrills in this small town than Grace was expecting….
Cole Rawlins is a rugged Wyoming cowboy born and bred. Yet he can't help but be drawn to the fascinating big-city girl who moves in across from him. He wants to get close enough to Grace to see past her tough facade, but if he does, she might see the real Cole. The one with a Hollywood history gone bad. As they discover a sizzling attraction, it becomes harder for him to keep his demons at bay - and those fires from long ago may burn them both.
They'll need more than scorching-hot passion to make this opposites-attract affair work. But if they can learn to trust one another enough to reveal their secrets, they just might have a chance at forever.

Not her best

Would you try another book from Victoria Dahl and/or Genvieve Bevier?

Absolutely by the author, not so sure about the narrator

If you’ve listened to books by Victoria Dahl before, how does this one compare?

Not nearly as good as her other series.

What didn’t you like about Genvieve Bevier’s performance?

Male voices were not quite believable.

Did Close Enough to Touch inspire you to do anything?

Not really. I was really looking forward to another Victoria
Dahl romance. I thought there were lots of loose endings and didn't like that Cole and Grace didn't really express their feelings for each other. That aside the sex scenes were hot. Dahl always delivers on that note.

Was it just the narrator or . . .

Victoria Dahl is on my "must buy asap" list. I have loved her other books. I am sad to say I was disappointed by this one. I have never had a problem getting into one of her books before but this one it took me 3 tries before I made it past the 45 minute mark.

As always the characters were well developed and while Grace and Cole were interesting I really didn't connect with either of them. I was more interested in the secondary characters than Grace and Cole. They both seemed more like late teen/early twenties kids than late twenty/early thirties adults. Cole's emotional baggage in particular seemed disproportionate to the trials of his past. Still, I will read the next one because I really want to know Eve's story.

But if Genvieve Bevier is the narrator I will get it on Kindle instead of from Audible.

I think that may be my biggest problem with the book. Ms. Bevier's delivery was so overwrought and angst filled I felt like I was being yelled at a good half of the time. Grace and Cole sounded very similar to each other especially during the trademark hot sex scenes. Many of the sex scenes in this book were more raw than romantic. I guess that is what Ms. Bevier was trying to express. However, to me they sounded disgusted during the sex scenes not turned on. Raw passion shouldn't sound like you just realized you stepped in horse poo in your favorite Jimmy Choo's. Victoria please call Wanda Fontaine or Lauren Fortgang for the rest of your books, they both rocked your work.
