Week 20 Review: The Closer You Come

From Goodreads:
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.

My Review:
Man, this was a really fantastic book! I enjoyed it so much, it was just another great Gena Showalter book! I absolutely loved the romance between Brook Lynn and Jase, and how their struggles grew them closer as people! So fantastic!

These two have a good few amount of issues! Like how he went to prison for beating a guy to death who raped West's girlfriend who later died. Which is probably going to come up in the next two books, because West and Beck participated, but Jase wouldn't let them come forward with their participation, even though it meant he would sever a longer sentence. And how her family died one by one, leaving her and her sister in the con man care of their uncle before he took off, leaving Brook Lynn to take care of her older sister, Jessie Kay.

One thing that I don't want to admit, but what happened, was that I found it really difficult to keep Beck and West separate in my mind. We got details about them, but man, I found it really difficult! Though I don't think I'll have that problem in their books!

So I kinda guessed who the bad guy was going to be, just as soon as he was mentioned in another way. It just kinda made sense. And most of the time, he was giving cryptic warnings, and just being creepy. Before he got violent in the end. But they won, so yeah!

Favourite lines: The whole book! So funny! There were stand out lines, but I just enjoyed the whole book!

Yeah, really fantastic book! Can't wait for the sequels, they're going to be so freaking fantastic, I know it, they're Gena Showalter books!
