We know that the H has a womanising past and that he's really obnoxious but absolutely gorgeous too. I preordered this book last September as I was curious to see how the author was going to turn our H into a hero. I wasn't disappointed because she achieved it. The road to the hea wasn't smooth and easy because both main characters are super-stubborn. I really got frustrated when they went for days without speaking, however it was believable.
Looking forward to the next one
This story was such a cute and heartwarming read. Shane and Larkin have to cutest banter that kept me entertained throughout the book. They both have some difficult issues to figure out, but they for each other. They finally find the one person who they can completely open up with. This is the perfect read if you are looking for a light read. Very very adorable!
Larkin O’Neill, who owns the Petite Treats Bakery, comes from a catastrophe of a family. She has doggedly done whatever it took to get an education, start a business, and take care of herself. To do this, she has severed all ties with her family. Despite the fact that she was not supported or nurtured in her youth, Larkin is a caring, warm person.
“Feeding people makes me happy.” --Larkin
Shane Sullivan comes from old money. His family has high standards and high expectations. His dad is the stereotype of the entitled rich, and Shane desperately eschews everything his father embraces with one exception. Shane has reluctantly joined the family’s law firm. To add to his baggage, Shane’s reputation as a lothario means the local women refuse to see him as anything but bad-boy eye candy.
“Everybody tends to think the worst about me and relationships. Why should you be any different.” --Shane
Gina Valeri, one-time cafeteria lady, is known in town as “The Cake Lady” now that she is has the most successful cake decorating shop in Harvest Cove. Being a single mom was a struggle, and the hardship showed in her gruff mannerisms when she was working multiple jobs to keep food on the table. While everyone presumes that Gina and Larkin would be business rivals, they actually have a kind, supportive relationship. The two are neighbors, and Gina has become a surrogate mom and good friend to Larkin.
The remaining secondary characters are charming. Shane’s friends provide are a varied set of artists, authors, and thespians who goad him to follow his dreams instead of following in his father’s footsteps.
I really enjoyed this well-paced, relatively chaste contemporary romance. The dialogue between the main characters is fun and flirty, and the two have a believable chemistry. No “insta-love” here; Shane and Larkin are friends, and given Larkin’s track record with men, she is inclined to stay single. I loved that Larkin and Shane started as friends, and that Shane chivalrously pursues Larkin (despite the womanizing in his youth, he really is a sweet guy who now has his head on straight).
“Sometimes the wrong guy turns out to be the right one.” --Gina
With friendship as the foundation of their relationship, Shane and Larkin approach a romantic relationship slowly. Larkin presumes they have absolutely nothing in common given the dichotomy of their upbringing and socio-economic standing in the Harvest Cove community. They get to know one another, and with that, they support each other through family problems and life choices.
I thoroughly enjoyed this light, easy read. There are a few conflicts for the main characters to overcome, but no melodrama. This book has a nice story, strong main characters, interesting secondary characters, and an uplifting, hopeful tone. The only way to improve this book would be to include the Petite Treat Bakery recipes! Come On Closer by Kendra Leigh Castle was a treat to read—just as sweet of a romance as Larkin’s brownies and cupcakes.
Shane’s love 'em and leave 'em ways have left him a persona non grata in Harvest Cove. But when Larkin bursts into his life, the handsome lawyer can't think of anywhere he'd rather be than by her side. She’s the first person in a long time who believes there could be more to him than meets the eye. Now he’s determined to prove to Larkin that he’s worth taking a chance on—and prove to himself that he’s the kind of man she deserves.
Come on Closer was a great book to read over Valentines Day. I wasn't sure that I would like Larkin and Shane together but slowly but surely Shane won me over. I like that they found a way to open up and explore what each of their lives have been and where they stand and find equal ground. I thought the story was a more realistic relationship building involvement and it was something that I enjoyed following along with. Come on Closer was a great read.
