Review: Come a Little Closer by Kim Karr


Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

I've been wanting to read Jaxson Cassidy's story ever since he was introduced in The Thing About Love, and if you've read that Kim Karr standalone, you'll know why this ex-fiancĂ© of Jules Easton, now Kissinger, needed his own happily-ever after. Well, he finally gets it in Come a Little Closer and here he's paired with Sadie Banks, a woman who's trying to live in the present and create a better future for herself, hoping to leave a tumultuous past behind. Her move to Atlanta was meant as a way to start over, but then she loses her position at an online magazine publication, and then makes a horrendous mistake that will leave her haunted and have her on the run. The good girl that she's tried to become takes a backseat when she crosses paths with Jaxson, the photographer that's making it big, although success has led the good guy to do bad things. They can't stand one another but getting stuck in Antigua together makes it difficult for them to pretend the sizzling attraction between them doesn't exist. With both Sadie and Jaxson with their respective share of secrets and issues, is there hope for a future together?

As always, I enjoyed this Kim Karr romance! I may have yet to read quite a few of the books on her back list, but based on the titles I've read since last year, saying "yes" to a Karr-penned book is a no-brainer. There was an air of mystery and suspense tied to this latest release of hers, and Jaxson and Sadie seemed to have met their match in one another. There was a whole lot of give and take and back and forth with these two, and I certainly made for a lot of entertaining and memorable moments in the book. I loved how both Jaxson and Sadie were dealing with changes in their lives and how they seemed to bring out the best and worst out of one another. They definitely didn't make for a boring couple, and their story was one that had me holding on to my tablet from start to finish. Look, Ma, no breaks! I had high expectations for this one, and Karr made sure that every single one was met. Come a Little Closer can be read as a standalone, but you won't have any regrets reading The Thing About Love either. I'm giving this newest release 4.5 stars, and I'm so looking forward to reading Finn Easton's love story, later this year! ♥
