Overview

New York Times bestselling author Jill Sanders strikes gold with a sizzling series about oil-rich playboys whose hearts are up for grabs.

No one’s more surprised than Tyler McGowan when he discovers he has a knack for running the family’s oil business—a role he took on after his father’s sudden passing. Now, to keep the old man’s legacy afloat, Tyler’s giving up his playboy ways and settling into small-town life. But his newfound resolve is tested when trouble strides into his office in five-inch heels.

Kristen Howell has spent the last five years working her way up the corporate ladder. And somehow it’s landed her smack-dab in the middle of nowhere: Haven, Montana. It’s her job to convince the head of McGowan Enterprises to sell. But the tall and rangy hunk is proving to be exceedingly stubborn—and overwhelmingly hot. When someone attempts to derail her negotiations, Kristen is ready to get down and dirty. But the sparks she and Tyler are throwing near the oil field may be dangerously combustible…

I want more… more McGowan brothers… more sexy fun… more of this loving family. There is absolutely nothing I would change about sexy, business man Tyler. He stands by his family and changes his life when it is needed to keep his father’s dreams alive. He goes after what he wants and God forbid you get in his way, he will plow you over. Best of all, he loves with his entire heart and soul. There is no half way, not partial giving, it is an all or nothing deal. Enter Kristin… city girl at heart, climbing the corporate ladder. When she arrives in small town Haven, Montana her heart and head immediately tells her something is different here, there is something in this town that talks to her from the minute she gets off the plane. Kristin just has to decide if she will listen. I loved everything about this book. The small town, the amazing characters, the wonderful families, and the sexy heat were all perfect. I am so excited about this series by Jill Sanders. Thank you Montlake for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

The three McGowan brothers, Tyler, Trent and Trey inherited equal shares in their father's business, McGowan Enterprises in Haven, Montana. Tyler, as the oldest was named head of the company and with reluctance he returned home from the city. Kristen Howell works for JB Holdings and she has been sent to Montana by her boss to persuade the McGowan brothers to sell their company to JB Holdings. A city girl with Gucci luggage and Jimmy Choo shoes, she is like a fish out of water in small town Montana. But there is an attraction between her and Tyler which only grows as her boss insists she stays in Haven until she gets the brothers to sign, even if it means digging up dirt. There's bad blood between the McGowan brothers and their Uncle Carl, between the McGowan brothers and their secretary Rea's son Brian and between McGowan Enterprises and the protesters who have set up camp protesting the oil fields and the oil pipelines owned by McGowan Enterprises. Writing this review there are a lot of things going on in this book: the mystery of why JB Holdings wants to buy McGowan Enterprises so desperately; the mystery of who is behind the sabotage on site; the mystery of who trashes Kristen's room at the hotel; the mystery behind the unpaid invoices; even the mystery of who is behind the kidnapping. And yet, the overwhelming impression I was left with was of a book which sagged in the middle with scene after scene of fairly greige sex, I just skipped pages and pages of same-same looking for a story. In fact I don't believe that some of these plots were ever tied up properly, as if the author just threw them in for a bit of mystery but couldn't be bothered to make up a real motive. Frankly the 'baddies' were such cardboard cutouts that I couldn't really tell them apart. I felt that this book suffered from a genre crisis, it had too many plots for a small town romance but not enough plot development for a mystery romance. Overall, it was okay, I didn't hate it and I would probably read Trent and Tyler's books (I expect Trent will have been in love with Addy, one of the protesters, since they were at school) but it didn't make me want to go and look up Jill Sanders' previous books. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

I was thoroughly captivated by this book! Reading for hours when I should have been sleeping. The characters of Tyler & Kristen were both very complex characters.. Seeing them evolve in their relationship was beautiful. I also enjoyed the bit of mystery to the story. The other characters of the book were each well developed and their role in the story portrayed exactly right. I think this is a great book for a weekend read! “I received a free, advance copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my unbiased review.”

The city mouse meets the country mouse in this delightful and intriguing new romance from Jill Sanders. Closer to You is set in Montana, and the winter weather in the small town of Haven, plays a huge part in the narrative. This story is about the brothers McGowan, and they are all gorgeous, smart, and down-to-earth. After his father's death, Tyler McGowan, along with his two brothers, are running the family business. Tyler is shocked to be in charge, but he is doing a good job and business is booming. Then the smart and beautiful Kristen Howell pops into his life. Kristen is from New York City and the firm that she works for wants to purchase McGowan Enterprises, which is not for sale. Kristen believes she is next in line for a high-level corporate position if she is able to get the brothers to sell. Right off the bat, Tyler and Kristen share a sizzling chemistry, and overtime they explore their feelings for each other. Mixing business with pleasure ends up working out for the two of them. However, a few barriers and unwelcome surprises along the way keep them on their toes. This is a nicely written romance with a bit of suspense, that twists and turns in all the right places. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

Closer to You kicks off Jill Sanders new Haven, Montana series involving the McGowan brothers. Tyler McGowan takes over as the head of the family business after their beloved father passes away. Kristin is 100% city girl and is sent to the small country town of Haven, Montana by her boss to convince the McGowans to sell out. This book drew me in from the start and kept me guessing until the very end. There was a definite spark between Tyler and Kristin from the time they first met but they were determined to keep it professional. Once they finally gave in however, the heat rolled off the pages. Overall this was a nice start to a new series and I cannot wait to read more about the McGowan brothers. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley.

Tyler McGowan could not wait to shake the snow of Haven Montana off his boots, now however he cannot fathom living anywhere in the city as his love for the clear air and slower pace of life has been rekindled now that he is head of his father's oil business. Kristen Howell on the other hand is sure that city living is what she wants forever, coming to Haven Montana for her job was just another step on the way to fulfilling her desire for advancement. The pair strike sparks from their first meeting but are both determined to keep the relationship strictly business as Kristen will only be in town for two weeks. Somehow those good intentions are thrown out the window when the explosive chemistry that Tyler and Kristen share becomes too hard to ignore. Do they stand a chance together or will Tyler and Kristen’s personal choices, both private and professional, keep them apart for good? It is a good idea to read Closer To You and find out for yourself how it all works out for the small town man and the city girl. [EArc from Netgalley in exchange for honest review]

Kristen steps off the plane in Montana and she isn't ready for the weather or man who literally picks her up. Tyler sees a fancy woman dressed in the most inappropriate clothes for Montana and knows she is trouble. Kristen is there to get his family to sell their business and they will not sell it under any circumstances. Kristen's boss is insistent that she get them to sell at any cost. She is wondering why and questions why she is still working for her company. She is a city girl and the country has never seemed appealing to her, but there is something about Haven, Montana. Tyler realizes that Kristen is the one for him, but would she be able to live in the middle of nowhere Montana?

Action packed, emotionally thrilling, sweetly sexy romantic adventure filled with mystery, danger and lots of "I so can not put this book down or I might explode" twists. Tyler McGowan is sexy, charming and so determined to buckle down and keep his family business alive in the wake of losing his father. Kristen Howell is sassy, sexy and determined to get McGowan Enterprises to sell so she can continue her climb up the corporate ladder. Sparks fly, emotions run deep and family bounds are tested, loved every heart pounding turn. Looking forward to more visits to Haven, Montana.

Closer to You by Jill Sanders Haven Montana #1 Wonderful beginning to what should prove to be an excellent series if this book is anything to go by. I am sure that brothers Trent and Trey will have books of their own BUT since the series is named after the location and not the brothers this could also include others who live in Haven. The McGowan brothers are HOT and all the women in town seem to know it. However, when Kristen Howell shows up in her designer clothes and is “swept off her feet” it is not because she is immediately filled with lust by Tyler, the eldest McGowan. Nope…she assumes he is “the help” and not “the owner” she was sent to negotiate a deal with. Over time the two do become closer to one another and things heat up but with her living and working so far away there is little chance of a long term relationship, right? This was a complex story with jealousy, kidnapping, embezzling, threats, fisticuffs, a taste of oil rigging rigors including life in an oil town, protestors and more. I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Tyler and Kristen and rooted for them to end up with a happily ever after ending – they were perfect for one another. The family dynamics of the McGowans were warm and loving and everything a close family of brothers should be. Words that came strongly to mind while reading and as I finished were: priorities, values, family and community…and how important they are in making lifelong decisions. This was my first book by Jill Sanders but I enjoyed it so much that I want to read more of her work whenever I find it. Thank you to NetGalley and Montlake Romance for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

Loved this one!! A great small town romance that I couldn't put down.The story had a nice little bit of suspense in it to keep things interesting. Great writing, characters and story makes this a must read. I can't wait for the next story in the series. After the death of their father, the McGowan brothers find themselves working hard to save and grow the family business just as their father wanted them to do. Tyler McGowan gave up his playboy lifestyle in LA to come home. Shocked when his father named him as his successor as head of the company. It takes a while but he finds himself fitting into the role.Now he's having to deal with city girl Kristen Howell sent to Haven MT to convince Tyler to sell the business. Not going to happen but having a little fun with Kristen while she comes to terms with that could be fun! I highly recommend this one.

Let me preface by saying that I have read a couple of books by Ms. Sanders, and I feel in this one she has shown her growth as a very talented author. The story centers around Tyler McGowan and Kristen Howell. Tyler is one of three brothers whose father’s sudden death, brings him back to Montana and in charge of McGowan Enterprises. Kristen , a city gal, is sent to Haven, Montana, by JB Holdings, to convince him and his family to sell. Needless to say, that even as these two clash, the attraction between them is palpable. The plot is complex, the suspense and bad guys intriguing, and the romance and characters , very well developed. You are kept guessing as to who is the one causing the vandalism. It’s a story that is plausible with individuals who are flawed . Loved that the McGowan’s were honorable men and respectful of their Mother and that the author gives us strong women in her storyline. Looking forward to more stories in this series. I see Trent’s and Trey’s stories, in the horizon. I was gifted this copy by Netgalley. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
