Cranky Author Reviews: The Closer you Come by Gena Showalter

Spoliers
First let me say that I have been a little behind with my schedule. I still have a few people's books to read but this one was read before those. 

Sorry for the delay I was working on getting out my next title and have been ill so please forgive the lack of posts. I am going to try to catch up this week! 

Any who on to Closer you Come...this book was  a hit for me. I loved and hated this book...mostly I hated that Brook Lynn's sister was with Jase before her. That was a bit of an yuck factor for me. It just seemed wrong.

Having said that what I loved about this book was they way that he connected with her. I did think the whole reveal about prison and her freaking out seemed a bit over done. I mean I get it but she was always going on and on about how actions mattered more than words for her and then she just freaks and won't talk to him. I don't know bit of over dramatization for me.

Other than that I really liked the story. I liked that she wasn't perfect and neither was he. It was a story about two people who found each other and discovered that they could be happy despite their pasts which made this book really stick with me. 

I think I could have done without the ex showing up with a kid but at least Gena didn't break them up over that. That was one thing I liked. It wasn't a moment that tore them apart it was a moment that brought them together without having a crazy ex woman to deal with. 

 Even with the negatives for me this was a  EXE or a 5-star 
just because they connected in a way few people find after living such a hard life....
