From the New York Times bestselling author of Come to Me Softly, another irresistible new adult romance in the Closer to You Series.
His heart was turned off…
Until she turned him on….
Christopher Moore gave up on the idea of love years ago. Now, his life is an endless string of parties and an even longer string of girls. Enjoying the physical perks with none of the emotional mess, he’s convinced everyone that he’s satisfied—everyone but himself.
Samantha Schultz has moved on with her life. Finishing her student teaching and living with her boyfriend, she’s deluded herself into believing she’s content. But there is one boy she never forgot—her first love—and she keeps the memory of him locked up tight. She will never allow any man to break her the way Christopher did.
When Christopher’s sister and her family move into a new neighborhood, Christopher is completely unprepared to find Samantha living at the end of the street. Memories and unspent desires put them on collision course of sex, lies, and lust. But when guilt and fear send Samantha running, Christopher will have to fight for what has always been his.
Jackson (Come to Me Softly) pours all-consuming passion, devastating loss, and second-chance love into the third and largely satisfying Closer to You new adult contemporary. As teenagers, Samantha Schultz and Christopher Moore found in each other an intense connection, until each of them was led to believe the other had cheated. Seven years later, a random encounter throws the long-ago loves together again. But just as Samantha and Christopher tentatively reclaim what they once had, tragedy strikes, and the reunion they've longed for is critically threatened. Jackson steadily builds the sexual tension between the protagonists as she delves into the past to slowly reveal what tore them apart in the first place, a device that ratchets up the overall suspense. Side plots involving Samantha's cancer-stricken younger brother and disturbingly possessive boyfriend are woven in as taut ribbons of foreboding. New adult fans will not be disappointed.
