The Harder You Fall

Book 3, Original Heartbreakers - A sizzling contemporary romance

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


From New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter comes another scorching Original Heartbreakers tale featuring an aloof bad boy and the rowdy Southern belle who rocks his world…

Millionaire video-game creator Lincoln West has a dark and tragic past. The sought-after bachelor lives by a rigid schedule and a single rule—one relationship per year, lasting no more than two months. No exceptions. When he gave up the big city for a small town, he hoped to escape the worst of his memories—until a brash beauty dredges up long-buried emotions.

A reformed party girl, Jessie Kay Dillon is determined to walk the straight and narrow. But her love-hate sizzle with West is just too irresistible. They can't be near each other without tearing off their clothes, but the last thing she needs is to be his next two-month dump. Will she become the one exception? Because as any former girl-gone-wild knows: rules are made to be broken.

"Emotional, heart-tugging, kept me turning the pages!" —Carly Phillips, New York Times Bestselling Author

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 09, 2015 – Showalter's formulaic third Original Heartbreakers contemporary (after The Hotter You Burn), set in small-town Oklahoma, curses its hero with an overbearing and unhealthy brand of masculinity. Jessie Kay's sister and her best friend are preparing to marry Lincoln West's two best friends. Jessie Kay is feeling a bit left behind in the romance department. Her relationship with Lincoln is adversarial and fraught, but in a trope as old as the genre, the two soon discover that their mutual loathing is actually a disguise for their mutual lust. They begin their slow dance toward the inevitable, engaging in plenty of heavy petting as they work to overcome Lincoln's aversion to commitment and Jessie Kay's newfound determination not to compromise on what she wants. Lincoln stalks Jessie Kay, confronts and spreads rumors about a man he thinks is competing for her affections, and pursues her aggressively even after she pushes him away. Fans of the series will find that this book follows the same road map as the first two books, and new readers may be put off by Lincoln's unpleasant and distinctly unromantic behavior.
