“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Beck Ockley lives by a single rule: one and done. The millionaire playboy knows the pain of loss and will do anything to avoid another. He moved to the small town of Strawberry Valley, Oklahoma, expecting more of the same—time with the only two friends he trusts, work…and lots of pleasure. What he never could have predicted was that a vulnerable Southern beauty would sneak past his defenses.
Harlow Glass is determined to rebuild her life. The reformed bully has lost everyone and thing she loved, and paid the ultimate price for her checkered past. Now she wants commitment, the only thing Beck refuses to give. As their chemistry blazes white-hot, he’ll either have to break her heart…or surrender his own.
Ok, I am going to admit here, I’m partially disappointed. I was kind of hoping for West’s book first. There is not much about Harlow in book one, so I can’t really say that I liked or disliked her. She doesn’t seem to be the town’s favorite person, but characters always have the flaws to over come. Just look at Kenna fighting her reputation. There were just so many options for this hot, fun guy. I’m excited for The Hotter You Burn because you just get a taste of the main characters in The Closer You Come and I’m sure the more I get to know them the more I’m going to love them. These guys remind me a lot of the Lords, but in a more normal, non-magical kind of way, so they are quite easy to fall in love with, despite their issues. The Hotter You Burn releases July 28, 2015 and you can preorder at Amazon or B&N. Gena is putting this series out really quick so you’ll want to jump in right away!
