The Harder You Fall is the latest romance from award winning author Gena Showalter, the third book from Gena’s Heartbreaker Series. This story revolves around a spontaneous and independent firecracker named Jessie Kay, and the computer genius and all round bad boy Lincoln West, whom she finds intriguing.
Both Jessie and Lincoln are a handful. They both carry so much emotional baggage that you wonder how a relationship could ever work between them. Lincoln has experienced so much tragedy and learned some very hard lessons in life, so much so that I couldn’t imagine him being much good for anyone. I don’t want to sound cold, but I think a person needs time to reconcile the events from their past before they can even contemplate starting a relationship with someone. I wasn’t sure he was ready.
Jessie is a tad rough around the edges. Yeh, lots of people like strong willed, independent women but sometimes it can be a bit hard to swallow. When you have two people who are trying to come to terms with their past, I didn’t think love would be possible. But I guess it was their tragic pasts that drew them both together. Jessie helps Lincoln to forgive and let go of his past and during the process they both learn that love really is worth fighting for.
This new series of Gena’s is a great reminder that we may have difficult times in our lives but there is always someone that can help….and you might be lucky enough to find love along the way.

Amazon Premise –
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. He moved to small town Strawberry Valley, Oklahoma, with his brothers-by-circumstance hoping 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. Can she be the one exception? Because as any former girl-gone-wild knows: rules are made to be broken.
