I loved Tage and Bristol both individually and as a couple. This book had a lot to offer, even though it was shorter than most books I read. Rockstars, Houdini hounds, stalkers and a whole lot of crazy.
There is over the top language, if this offends you, this isn't the book for you. I enjoyed most of the supporting characters except the best friend Quinn. She was obnoxious.
I finished this book in one sitting filled with smiles, laughter, swooning/ I also picked up a new vulgarity or two.
Enjoyed every minute and every character.

Bristol's been riding high with AWOL's success and has always found joy being on the stage until the night a crazed fan takes away her sense of security and taints her view of fame. Looking to lick her wounds she heads to her deceased grandmother's house and soon finds not only peace and quiet, but also love. It's a scorching connection that progresses in the blink of an eye before hitting a huge roadblock that leaves her open to danger and needing Tage more than ever. Bristol's a strong-willed woman who's quick with a comeback and isn't shy about going after Tage the moment she realizes how free he makes her feel. Their interactions are flirty and fun, their sexual interludes intensely erotic, and each time they're together lots of humor ensues. When it comes to her intense feelings for Tage she doesn't always make the right decisions though as her need to defend their relationship to the press has her overreacting out of fear and sabotaging their future just as it's begun. Thankfully their issues are quickly resolved in an exhilarating and heart pounding finale that left me cheering as Bristol discovered what's truly important to her.
Tage was once a star hockey player whose career ended due to the betrayal of his wife and best friend. He's made a new life though, one that brings him just as much satisfaction. The moment Bristol enters his life though he knows he has to claim her, despite being forced back into the glare of the spotlights in a relationship that's combustible from the moment he catches her in her bra on her balcony. Tage is a strong-willed hero who seems beloved by all in his small town. He could easily be jaded and angry over his past, but he's not which made him all the more appealing. Tage is one sexy beast with a talent for dirty talk which made their encounters even more intensely erotic. His interactions with his Uncle Felix had me laughing with their inappropriate banter which was as entertaining as the interactions he had with the other older men who inhabit his bar like those on Cheers. Tage's dog Moo was another delightful addition to the town who charmed me at every turn. From his stealing food to destruction of property I couldn't help but love him and with an act of bravery late in the story he earned the right to do whatever he wanted.
On a whole this was an entertaining story that beautifully balanced the sexy romance with engaging interactions outside the bedroom as well. It was a fun and flirty story that included a bit of suspense to make the conclusion a memorable one. Tage and Bristol were a delightful couple whose romance was almost picture perfect but for a bit of Bristol's needless worrying and assumptions towards the end. The secondary characters were exciting and colorful with issues of their own that leave you clamoring for more. The undefined connection between band mates Quinn and Tanner was made even more complicated by Bristol's bodyguard Evan and an out of the blue shocker that will leave reader's jaws on the floor as they breathlessly wait for the next installment! This story was mostly told from Bristol's perspective but a few chapters gave us a glimpse from other's POVs which sets things up nicely for the next installment, giving insight into the complicated feelings of other characters. Though this is a rock star-themed romance, not much time is spent in that world. This is more of a small town romance that gave us a charming and picturesque backdrop to show the dichotomy of Bristol's rock star life and the one she's now found with Tage. From the first page to the last this was a decadently delightful read that captivated me with each turn of the page and has me counting down the days until I see the fall-out from the squeal-inducing conclusion of Closer to You!
Bristol Lachlan has just finished her bands latest tour only to find herself fighting off a stalker. Wanting to get as far a way as she can she runs to the one place that she feels the most peace, her grandmother Jo's home, that she purchased after she passed away. Hoping that the R&R that she so desperately needs will help her regroup and begin to work again on AWOL's new album. With her security guard, Evan in tow, she heads for Grindstone Harbor. I seriously LOVED Bristol's character. She is a force to be reckoned with. The crazy banter between her and Evan is off the wall, side splitting, hilarious. Seriously, she has more one liners than there are sheets of 2-ply on a roll of toilet paper. When Bristol meets Tage, the owner of the local bar and retired hockey great, she finds herself questioning what she really wants in life.
Tage Crosy, has not had it easy. Just when his hockey career was taking off, he is sidelined by an injury that ends his career. Not only does he have to heal physically, but mentally and emotionally as well, when the two people closest to him deal the final blow. Now he spends his time running The Penalty Box and taking care of his crazy a** dog Moo and his Uncle Felix. Tage never thought he would come face to face with Jo's granddaughter. And when he does, there is no holding back the connection that he feels toward her.
Tristol...bahahaha...these two are amazing together! I loved the banter and the sex scenes were awesome. Tage has such a dirty, sexy, hot mouth. I could have listened to him talk for hours. Bristol has an answer for nearly every bit of banter and has some of the craziest words that she uses. I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a sweet, sexy, read, that includes a dog names Moo, who can't seem to get enough junk food, a group of older gentlemen who behave as if they are teenagers and band members who are not just friends, but a family. This is a relatively quick read, so grab your copy now and snuggle in for an awesome ride!
