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.

With the new books in this series coming out soon I really needed to get caught up. I'm so glad I did. One, you don't know who mentally weighed down you feel when you fall behind on a series you enjoy until it happens. I was just kinda mad at myself for letting it happen. 

I really do enjoy this series. Love the guys very much! 

The Harder You Fall is about two characters that I wasn't sure about. Jessie Kay slept with the first two book characters and though I don't mind women having sex for just sex, I wasn't sure how I'd feel about it being with two of the main characters. 

I mean, tacky, right?

But surprisingly enough I got over it really quick. I found that before the other two guys were coupled with their loves they were able to sleep with whoever so why could Jessie Kay? 

Once I got over all that I really couldn't wait for Jessie Kay's and Lincoln's book. I mean...if you read the other books in the series you'll know why. These two just shouted out from book one that they needed a story. 

So I built all this anticipation up inside myself only to be disappointed. Yes, I know, disappointed! It wasn't that the book wasn't good, because it was. I just...I don't know, wanted more? The funny part is I don't really know what that more is. 

All I can say is that I enjoyed the book but I didn't really love it. I was super glad they the both worked on their issues and came out the other side as better people. Both deserve love and happiness. 

Even with me not being overly excited about this one I really can't wait for Can't Hardly Breathe with is about Daniel who is talked about in this book. It's out on August 29th! Looks good! 

If you've read The Harder You Fall or any other book by Gena Showalter I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡

August 17th "Cover Talk"



  1. I never went back to this series after being lukewarm about the first one.

  2. I enjoy this series. I will have to check out what I thought about it because I read it when it first came out. It's been a while,lol.

  3. I haven't read this one but I have read some of her other books and enjoyed them.

  4. Such pretty covers. Yeah..that's tacky. Honestly I don't like any series characters sleeping together unless it's their final HEA person. Just icky otherwise (male or female) unless in BDSM then they get a pass. lol
