I haven’t always been this bad…

Up until recently, I was the kind of girl who wore white cotton panties and bent at the knees rather than the waist.

Pomp and circumstance changed all that.

Jaxson Cassidy was my first taste of bad, and I liked it more than I should have. Just not in the way I was meant to. I couldn’t help myself though. I found him irresistible. That sexy grin, those skilled fingers, and that dirty, dirty mouth were a lethal combination.

I wasn’t supposed to want him. I wasn’t supposed to let him put his hands on me. I wasn’t supposed to do a lot of things…but I did.

He wants to keep me close.
I should push him away.

He says he can help me.
I’m not so sure.

For some reason, he thinks there’s good left in me.
What if he’s wrong?

Everyone knows a good boy can’t turn a bad girl around.
Everyone knows it’s always the other way.
Everyone…except him.

In Come a Little Closer by Kim Karr, Sadie Banks has always been a good girl, but when something happens and she needs money fast, she'll do anything to get it including stealing from someone. However, stealing from Jaxson Cassidy is a bad idea, especially when she steals his most prized equipment; equipment he needs for his career as a photographer. Yet, when Jaxson catches up with Sadie, he doesn't know whether he'll turn her in to the authorities or use what happened to his advantage. But once he makes a decision, Sadie knows she's lucky that Jaxson is the one she stole from, especially once Sadie discovers the lengths someone is willing to go to in order to see that she loses everything. Will Jaxson be able to help Sadie escape the clutches of a madman, or will they lose their shot at happy ever after?

Ms. Karr pens such attention-grabbing, spicy romances and this story was very entertaining due to the trouble Sadie is facing surrounding why someone is out to get her for things she did in the past. Will the truth come out before it's too late? However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine come face-to-face for the first time where this story really takes off, as Sadie doesn't know whether she can go through with what she has planned.

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, the trouble the heroine is facing and the obstacles this couple face on their journey to happy ever after. Will Jaxson believe Sadie's story? Will Jaxson turn her in? Will the trouble Sadie is facing because someone is determined to make her pay for the past work out for the best? Will Jaxson be able to get to the bottom of the heroine's troubles before anything too terrible happens? Moreover, I really enjoyed both the main characters and I liked that Jaxson was willing to be her savior because she certainly needs one after everything she's been through before they meet.

With the main characters, Sadie is resilient, courageous and I liked how determined she was to make things right, even if it means making hard decisions that may put her life in danger. I also liked how determined she was to make things right with Jaxson because he doesn't deserve what she does to him. While the hero, he's confident, hard-working and I liked how determined he was to help the heroine because it's palpable she needs someone on her side. I also liked how protective the hero was of the heroine and that he would do anything to make certain her past doesn't come back bite her, especially once he discovers how much of a psychopath the person out to get Sadie is. Will he be able to protect her before anything too bad happens to her?

Overall, Ms. Karr has delivered another wonderful read in this book where emotions run high because Sadie does wrong by Jaxson and then tries to make things right; the chemistry between this couple was intense and just kept getting stronger; the romance was fan-your-face hot and had me loving how determined the hero is to take care of Sadie; and the ending had me worried for one of the main characters, but had me loving how things work out for these two. No way will Jaxson allow Sadie to get away from him, especially not after what happens. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up brilliantly, as the hero has wonderful and exciting news for the heroine. I would recommend Come a Little Closer by Kim Karr, if you enjoy the enemy to lovers trope, contemporary romance with a dash of suspense, or books by authors Melanie Harlow, Vi Keeland, Lauren Blakely and Tessa Bailey.
