    One thought on “The Closer You Come”

    1. RATING: 4.5 STARSThe Closer You Come is book one in The Original Heartbreakers series by Gena Showalter. Thank you to NetGalley, Harlequin and Gena Showalter for providing me with this book in exchange for an honest review.Gena Showalter is well known for her paranormal romances. Although I have some of them on my reading wish list, I have not read anything by her yet. I am glad, now, though, so that I wasn’t tempted to compare. I went into this book with an open mind as to what to expect, and [...]

    2. "You gotta love a man who builds a zombie-apocalypse bunker just for you."Blurb: 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…Br [...]

    3. 2.5-3 StarsOnce wasn't going to be enough. He realized that now. He wanted her countless times in countless ways. Underneath him. On top of him. Beside himWhen I saw that Gena was coming out with a brand new contemporary romance series, I was thrilled! I loved Catch a Mate and I've been dying for her to write more in this genre. Having read both of her PNR series, I already knew I love the snarky and humor characters she creates and the synopsis sounded right up my alley. Three bad boys, one sma [...]

    4. THE CLOSER YOU COME by Gena Showalter is the first full novel in her ORIGINAL HEARTBREAKERS series, and while I really liked the prequel novella, this one was a bit more disappointing. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it but the main characters weren't my favorites and I found the plot not that intriguing."You are pleasure to my pain, hope to my fear. You are everything I've ever needed but didn't think I'd be lucky enough to have."Jase Hollister was just released from a nine years sentence. He isn [...]

    5. Blerg. You set up such a raw gritty premise like this and yet it completely derails to the ground with the writing & transparently thin plot. The issues I had:You have an ex-con released from prison for a hardcore crime with serious abandonment and rage issues who morphs into an obsessive lovesick teenager following the girl of his dreams around town. -__- Seriously? SMH. Never mind the extreme insta-lust-love, this guy is so hung up and going mine mine MINE! just after their first awkward a [...]

    6. I don't like books where the hero has slept with a sibling. It is rare I'll read one and in this case when the heroine meets the hero, he is literally zipping up his pants from screwing her sister. :/

    7. 1 - "Let's do this again never." Star.DNFIf having a selfish asshole for a sister wasn't bad enough, then getting involved with a guy that bounced said sister on and off his cock in the space of an hour at the start of the book, pretty much nailed the coffin shut on this story for me. I still like the series in general, so hope the next book(s) don't follow in the same vein.The over use of the phrases man meat & lady meat got pretty annoying too.

    8. I really loved 'The One You Want', a prequel novella to this series so I had high expectations for this book. The story started off brilliantly with an interesting premise (Except for the awkward moment when Jase and Brook Lynn first met.), but why, oh why! Who would have thought it would end up being a disaster?! It left me unimpressed and disappointed!The story dragged a bit, particularly in the middle. I was so frustrated with Jase that he couldn’t make up his mind whether to welcome Brook [...]

    9. I think I prefer Showalters PNR work and need to stick to that. This just didn't do it for me :(*ARC provided by the publisher

    10. DNF“Hello. I am armed.” She waved the sanitizer in his face. “The world is going to spiral into a zombie apocalypse one dayunless we get proactive and do something. It’s called germ warfare. Look it up. I’m doing my part.”“That’s not what germ— Never mind. You fear zombies?”“Fear? No. That’s Kenna. I’m actually looking forward to battling the undead. I plan to collect their heads like trophies.”Why was that so damn sexy?Hint: everything about her was sexy. Even the fa [...]

    11. 4.5 starsMy first Gena Showalter experience was thru her paranormal romance series Lords of the Underworld(which I HIGHLY recommend). In the first installment to her new contemporary romance series, The Original Heartbreakers(which I HIGHLY recommend also), we are introduced to the enigmatic newcomer Jase Hollister and hometown no bullshitter Brook Lynn Dillon. Their connection wasn't immediate due to how they met(under a circumstance that was awkward) but as the days go by and opportunities com [...]

    12. hero literally is zipping up his pants after having sex with heroine's sister when heroine meets him. Not for me.

    13. Brook Lynn Dillon is used to being responsible, although that doesn’t mean life has been easy. She’s broke and has no time for fun, not like her sister. Until she meets the dangerous Jase, who is temptation personified but she knows she should resist him, especially once he becomes her employer. But resistance is futile and soon both are succumbing to their sizzling desire. However what will happen when Brook Lynn finds out the secret Jase has been too afraid to tell her?Jase Hollister has j [...]

    14. Gena Showalter is well know for her paranormal romances. I love her Lords of the Underworld series, but I’m also glad I picked up her contemporary romance to try. I feel in love with Strawberry Valley and it's characters. Jase Hollister has been out of prison for six months and is now trying to make a life for himself. His two best friends or bothers, have all come to Strawberry Valley to start fresh. All Jase wants is peace, quiet, and solitude. He bears some major scars from his time in pris [...]

    15. Can a sane and sensible young woman quench the raging inferno of an ex-con looking to stay out of the trouble that always seems to find him? The Closer You Come by Gena Showalter has the answer and a whole lot more!Scarred emotionally from is past, Jase is part of a trio who buy a farm where peace and quiet may finally sooth his pain. His path to finding and lusting for Brook is filled with conquests and easy sex, but she is different, very different and change is what he is looking for.Brook’ [...]

    16. Review posted on Got Fiction? book blogI raved a week or two ago about the prequel novella to this series, and can I say I loved this book more! If you want one of the best heroes of the year, this book is it. Not to mention this is probably the hottest Showalter book out there.That being said, I won't spoil what it is, but there's a part right at the beginning of the book that might be hard for you. BUT, while it is something I normally would drop a book for, Showalter made it work, made it bel [...]

    17. 3.5 starsI loved Gena's Zombie YA series, so I was eager to finally read one of her other many books. I really liked Brook Lynn and Jase. They're both so passionate and it definitely makes for some excellent UST. There are a lot of great secondary characters and I can't wait to see who are the stars of the companion books. The only reason I didn't rate it higher is that the 2 part conflict was finally revealed when the book was almost over. Yes, there were hints about things, but nothing was act [...]

    18. Well, let's just say having sex with your sister is a line I will never cross!Also, H finds out near the end of the story that he has a kid with OW and his constant 'I want her, can't have her but also can't live without her' is getting old real fast!

    19. "THE CLOSER YOU COME is a promising start to the Original Heartbreakers series!"Read this review in its entirety at Fresh Fiction

    20. 2.5 stars *sigh* I just don't know what happened here. I will admit that I wanted to DNF it a dozen times, but then Showalter would give us a tiny hint of something sinister and I just had to know what the hell that was all going to be about. And I mean seriously tiny hints, like "There was a man." Super vague, but you know it wouldn't be mentioned if it wasn't going to be important later on. I called it. Totally called it. We've seen this villain a bajillion times and if it's not one of your fi [...]

    21. 2 ½ stars. Parts were enjoyable, but I skimmed parts toward the end. All the characters are damaged or tortured by their past, which I don’t mind. But I was tired of so much of that angst being the basis for conflicts. I think it was overused. The couple is hot for each other but they frequently leave or stay away from each other. Here’s an example: They’re kissing and hot for each other. Then all of a sudden she says she should go because her sister needs her. He says I don’t want you [...]

    22. 4.5 StarsThis is by far not the best romance book I've ever read by Gena Showalter has a way with writing male characters with a dark past and women lost on their way to finding something. I loved the relationship between these two, I just wished Brook Lynn wasn't so self righteous. Calling herself a slut for things that are natural to women. I want to read about girls empowering themselves, not making themselves feel worthless.

    23. Self note: H/h meet while he just banged h's sister. cant read when sisters have had same cock ! yuck! I hope he at least used condoms!

    24. I am being generous giving this 2 stars. Because I didn't hate it. Mostly. I liked some of it even. This was my first book by the author, and the plot sounded interesting from the short blurb, and hey it was only $2, so I grabbed it. It started off with a decent writing style, and the heroine seemed interesting at first.So what went wrong? The premise of this series is that we have these 3 friends/former foster brothers with issues: a former drug addict, a sex addict, and the main hero of this f [...]
