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.
I really liked Brook Lynn. She's had a hard life but she is tough and a hard worker and takes things as they come. Jase has a past and thinks he's not good enough to get involved with anyone. They get to know each other when Jase hires her to be his assistant. He's attracted to her but tries not to get too close. I think I would have liked this book better, but I had a problem with the way they met and that sort of colored the rest of it for me. I would recommend it, though. As long as you can get past their first meeting. Jase's friends are interesting and I'll have to check out their stories as well.
