Synopsis (Goodreads):
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.
Thoughts on The Harder You Fall: Jessie and West! YES! I'm going to confess that I skipped around a little with this series, so I got to see them giving one another lustful stares already, but their romance was so freaking CUTE. Because they're both a little damaged and their both a little wary and they make it work.

I loved that Jessie had reached the point where she was no longer willing to settle. She's determined to find someone who loves her for her and half-measures weren't going to cut it. Unfortunately, half-measures seem like all West is able to give at first. His self-imposed penance over what sent Jace to prison and, later, his girlfriend's death are a huge roadblock Jessie and West have to get over. He's determined to stay the course, but she's just as determined to find a man who loves her and wants to be with her without reservations.

So they snark at one another. And they snipe at one another. And they can't get enough of one another.

When things finally boil over, it's glorious. They're sexy and fun and they find a way past their heartaches. *thumbs up*

  1. THIS, is the only one in the series I have missed! I need to go back and read it. Jessie Kay is one of my favorite characters and I can't believe I missed this one!
