Overview

Can't Get Enough by Gena Showalter

New York Times best selling author Gena Showalter returns with a sizzling Original Heartbreakers tale, featuring a rough, tough bad boy brought to his knees by... a kindergarten teacher?

The king of one-night stands...

To inherit--and destroy--his father's business at long last, Brock Hudson needs a temporary wife. The ruthless ex-military heartthrob has always avoided romantic entanglements. Women are sweet, but vengeance will be sweeter. Or so he thinks. Only one woman will do, but the vulnerable beauty is more than he bargained for--sexier, wittier, and utterly irresistible.

The queen of the deep freeze...

After an abusive first marriage, Lyndie Scott has sworn off relationships. But still she longs for a child of her own. Turns out, the brawler who used to frighten her with only a glance is the answer to her problems. She agrees to his proposal, with a caveat: spend every night in bed with her, then walk away for good when it's time to divorce. Even if she's pregnant.

A marriage of breathtaking inconvenience...

As the days pass too quickly and the nights heat up, Brock battles a sense of possession and obsession. Will the former commitment-phobe convince his wife they're better off together, or will she pack her bags and go?

Brock is a one and done kind of man with demons in his past that he is always trying to run from by drinking too much and sleeping with a new girl every night. Lyndie is a woman with an abusive past who can’t handle any sort of violence and doesn’t like being around men who drink.  Brock is good friends with Jude and Daniel. Lyndie is good friends with Dorothea and Ryanne. So the two are always seeing each other. She has seen him at the Scratching Post and know all about his conquests. He knows about her violent past and the fact that she seems to fear him. They both desire each other but have not acted on it because of all of their baggage and the fact they don’t want to ruin their friends relationships.  When Brock is told his father has died, he heads back to New York and finds out that his father's will requires him to get married in order to inherit the family business. He hates his mother and his mother hates him so he sees this as the opportunity to get a little revenge and decides that if he has to get married, very temporarily, in order to get that vengeance there is only one woman he can see himself married to - Lyndie.  It also helps that he has had the hots for her ever since seeing her at the Scratching Post, so it is a win-win if he can convince her to trust him.  Lyndie swore never to get imprisoned again in a marriage, but when Brock proposes a 1-month marriage she sees it as the opportunity to get something she has longed for - a baby. A deal is struck and they are married, but Brock is keeping one very big secret even while he tries to win her trust and her secrets.  Lyndie cares deeply for Brock and what he has survived and the longer she stays married to him, the harder it becomes to say goodbye, but when his secrets are revealed, will she be able to forgive him in order for both of them to finally have happily-forever-after or will she find herself alone once more?

Can't Get Enough by Gena Showalter is a romance novel between contradicting characters who are just the right thing for each other. Lyndie Scott has had it rough, she escaped an abusive father only to find herself at the mercy of the same fate with her husband. Now that she has escaped her past she is working through her trust issues with some good friends in a place she feels secure. Brock Hudson has the best of friends in his Army buddies they have all saved each other and each of them has found even more rescue in their new wives. Brock only finds escape through one night stands and booze. That is until he sees Lyndie and now every woman he is with he imagines her. Lyndie was inexplicably attracted to the handsome playboy who just happened to be best buddy with the husbands of her two closest friends. at first glace, but her fear of the large and intimidating man overwhelmed her. Both Lyndie and Brock have problems now though. Brock's father left a stipulation in his will that Brock get married, or his hated mother gets control of the business, and Lyndie wants a baby and Brock's proposition for a one month marriage seems like an idea opportunity to get that. Neither knows that the other has been secretly wanting the other. The story is one of many small steps forward and more steps back. Developing trust as they learn more about each other is both difficult and steamy as the physical connection between the two of them is undeniable. I liked the complexity that Ms. Showalter creates in these characters, neither has simple problems and neither will admit outright that the other holds the solution to them. The internal debates and discussion that each of them has leaves the reader screaming "Just talk to each other!" while at the same time the raw passion between them does not dissapoint while they work through their internal demons. Overall I very much enjoyed Can't Get Enough by Gena Showalter, the cast of characters and the commitment and connections that they have. This was a fun and frustrating (in a good way) story that I was burning pages to find out more about as I went. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received for free via NetGalley in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

Strength lies in allowing ourselves to be vulnerable. There in lies the beauty of The Original Heartbreakers. These towering pillars of testosterone know what it means to protect the weak, but do they understand what it means to risk their hearts. Can't Get Enough is more than just a playboy bachelor with a grudge. Lyndie and Brock's battle is in finding the courage to face life's heartaches with courage and hope. In that aspect Lyndie has more strength in her little figure, than Brock has trust in his heart. Getting lost in Ms. Showalter's stories is never a problem. In the end the cause justifies the means.
