Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling 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 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. Model citizen isn't exactly this rugged bachelor's default setting - especially when it comes to a certain hot-blooded Southern beauty - but he's determined to play by the rules.
Brook Lynn Dillon has always been the responsible type. Not that it's done her much good. The down-on-her-luck waitress is broke, single, and wouldn't know fun if it bit her. Or so she thinks. Jase makes bad look oh, so good.
Dangerous, sexy and tempting as sin, he is everything she never knew she wanted. Passion sizzles between them, but is it enough to melt his resistance? After all, the right kind of trouble might be just what he needs...

Savannah Richards narration is Orgasmic!

I chose this book based on the narrators performance in Insidious. Ms. Richards is spot on! Story line is good. Loved it.

No..! Just NO!!!

What character would you cut from The Closer You Come?

!) BOTH OF THE LEAD CHARACTERS !! PLUS the sister and the two other best friends of the male lead character and the other leading lady of the next book kenna..all have character flaws I know but it just not my taste to read about people who dislike themselves and that they're dissipated, dissolute, promiscuous to the extent that they're always looking for the next lay and not caring who they hurt just so they can have fun and be happy for a while, etc. etc. so no..I don't go for this type of drama..the real world out there is bad enough, do the listeners need to hear about this even if it's just a story? I want to loose myself in a book with the adventure and the newness of falling in love etc not be mired in muck and mud and feel dirty..even if it's make believe.


Any additional comments?

I'm not a fan of the author's newest books, her contemporaries, at first I thought I'd give it a try when I read the synopsis of the first full volume of the book. But the first two chapters of the book threw me off the characters entirely, from the description of the main character I would think fine ok he's got a few angst and he's entitled to brood or be moody, the leading female lead character is a pushover too goody goody especially in regards to her sister she's a doormat and then we get to the crux of my problem with this book...! (spoiler alert) both leading characters meet in a room next to the bed where her sister lays naked from just waking up after having sex with the main male character!!! That put me off right there! And so after this had just come into mind, the female lead character is still interested in the guy!! WHAT?! How could the author think this is OK?! really? I know this is just a story but really? would any man or woman really think, hey it's ok, my sibling had just had sex with so and so but wow, I'm still interested in that person. EWWWWWW!!! ACKKKK!!! BLEHHHHH! (me throwing up!) sorry Gena, but what happened to you?!
