The Closer

Harlequin Blaze #764 - Men Out of Uniform

The main thing I can say about this book is Fantastic! This book is one of the few tales I have read this year that has everything: wonderful characters that you fall in love with from the start of the book, lively writing that keeps the story moving along, extremely hot sex scenes…ones where you need something to cool off with while reading them, and very hilarious humor. There are a couple of inside quips that that cracked me up that some readers might not get unless you watch a certain television show on Thursday’s night. I have definitely found a new author to read and will start collecting her earlier works and her newer ones!

Bye the way, I used to read Harlequin Blaze books years-ago and then I stopped reading them due to the fact that most of the sex scenes back then were boring and bland compared to other bigger romance books that were on the market. They also dealt with virgins and their first sexual experience and that’s not today’s women at all. However, I am glad that Harlequin Blaze has finally caught up with the times and changed for the better. I now want to check out more Harlequin imprints to see if they have gotten more contemporary to!

Ex-Ranger Griffin, AKA Griff, who left the military to give his never before seen step-brother a kidney, cannot believe his first assignment with his new security firm is to guard a bra! It’s a two and a half million dollar bra that encrusted with jewels to be shown at a prestigious fashion show. The daughter of the bra maker, Jessalyn AKA Jess, is not happy she has to escort the bra to the fashion show and deal with fashion people who think her entire body is too fat to be around them. But she is the only one who can do it, so she leaves her small town where she is lives in a tree house, designing her own jewelry line, working on cars as a mechanic, and driving her stock car in a race. When Griff and Jess first meet sparks fly between them, but will they wait until the job is over and get it on? However, will they both say no to the romance all together since one lives in Georgia and the other one has a life in West Virginia?

Book Blurb for The Closer

Subject: Griffin Wicklow, aka "The Closer" 

Current Status: To protect stunning jeweler and a priceless piece of…lingerie?  

Ranger Security has just assigned former ranger Griff Wicklow to protect a priceless diamond-encrusted bra. And while Griff has more experience removing bras than protecting them, his job is about to get even more complicated. Because Temptation just walked in disguised as Jessalyn Rossi, the drop-dead delectable jeweler who is escorting the piece…. 

The attraction between them is immediate…and irresistible. And Jessalyn's learning that there's a lot to be said about—and done with—a wickedly hot security agent like Griff. But once the job is finished, will their bedroom antics come to a close, too?
