The best thing about Closer To You is the synopsis that was created to hook the reader into reading the ebook. As soon as I read the first page I knew I was in for a disappointment, but kept reading, hoping it would get better; unfortunately, the story only got worse.
The two main issues that I have stem from the author's writing style.
The first is, the dialogue is at times simplistic and repetitive and other times overwhelmed with purple prose. I felt as if I was reading a rough draft of a novel rather than the final product.
The second, is that the main protagonists are stereotypes. Kerrigan very easily gives in to cringe inducing displays of histrionics and immaturity. Her behavior is at odds with what I believe a thirty year old successful business woman would act. Axel is overly confident and uncomfortably domineering.
Sadly, this book just didn’t do it for me.
The continuation of the first book (Pull Me Closer) in the Suits in Pursuit series, Closer To You, picks up on the sensual love story of Axel and Kerrigan.
Following the advice of a spastic inspirational speaker, a jet-setting advertising executive decides its time to trade in her chaotic lifestyle for the one she really wants. Relocation to Atlanta is just the opportunity she needs.
The ad agency owner of an Atlanta firm is looking for talent who can help his business expand. When she interviews with the insanely hot agency owner, her underactive libido goes into overdrive and the feeling is mutual.
A year and kidnapping later, he learns that catching her isn't easy, but keeping her next to impossible. His controversial past and trust issues create the perfect storm, leading to betrayal and heartbreak.
