Today I get to share with you the latest installment of Gena Showalter’s Original Heartbreakers series. I’m saying latest because I am really hoping this isn’t the last. In this one we are finally getting West and Jessie Kay’s story. This one is just as steamy as the others. Reading this series has solidified Gena Showalter as one of the best storytellers I have read. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.
Millionaire video-game creator Lincoln West has a dark and tragic past. The sought-after bachelor lives by a rigid schedule and a single rule—one relationship per year, lasting no more than two months. No exceptions. He moved to small town Strawberry Valley, Oklahoma, with his brothers-by-circumstance hoping to escape the worst of his memories—until a brash beauty dredges up long-buried emotions.
A reformed party girl, Jessie Kay Dillon is determined to walk the straight and narrow. But her love-hate sizzle with West is just too irresistible. They can’t be near each other without tearing off their clothes, but the last thing she needs is to be his next two-month dump. Can she be the one exception? Because as any former girl-gone-wild knows: rules are made to be broken.
West has lived his life on a timetable for a long time. When Jessie Kay walks into his life it throws him off completely. He tries fighting what his body clearly wants. Finally he can’t take it any more and offers her the only thing he can offer her. But, Jessie Kay is now reformed and wants it all or nothing. As the two of them fight what each desperately wants, will they eventually come to the same conclusion or will it end the way all of their relationships have ended?
I loved this installment. This has been long awaited ever since the first book when we met Jace, West and Beck. In West’s story we finally get to dive more into his backstory and why he is the way he is. Leading up to this book we have had bits and pieces but now we know his reasoning for his actions. We also get to see redemption for Jessie Kay. She has been the party girl slacker up until this book. This was the perfect mix of love, sex and deep emotions that only these two could evoke in a reader. When you read this book you will be just like me and hope this isn’t the last in this series. I would love to see Daniel get his happily ever after. For all of you looking for a phenomenal romantic series run to pick this one up. I guarantee you will not regret it. I can’t wait to see what Gena Showalter comes out with next.
