Publisher's Summary

The virgin isn’t the only one with something to lose....

Self-described manwhore Kieran Frost is loving the single life. Two years after moving to Seattle, he still has his friends with benefits, Rhett and Ethan, plus a never-ending supply of gorgeous, available men wandering through the bar where he works. A relationship? Spare him the drama and heartbreak. He’s got no complaints about his unattached lifestyle. 

When Rhett’s daughter introduces him to newly-out-of-the-closet Alex Corbin, Kieran’s interest perks up. After all, the quiet ones are always the freaks in bed. But Alex isn’t just shy and reserved. He’s a virgin in every sense of the word - he’s never even kissed anyone. Kieran is no one’s teacher, and his first instinct is to run like hell in the other direction. But his conscience won’t let him throw the naïve kid to the wolves for someone else to take advantage of. The plan is to introduce Alex to his own sexuality, pull him out of his shell, then go their separate ways. It’s the perfect, foolproof plan...assuming no one falls in love.

Worth a listen

As a narrator, Nick J Russo is awesome. Listening to his voice really made up for what I saw as the negatives in the story. For the most part, I liked this book and the characters but I git sick and tired of the over emphasis on consent. “Can I touch you on your arm? Can I touch you on your stomach? Can I touch you on your leg? Can I touch you on your cock? Are you sure? Are you really sure? Are you super sure? Ok, now I’m touching you, is this still ok? Now I’m adding more pressure, is this still ok? I can hear you moaning and can see you writhing in pleasure but I still want to make sure you are ok so if you can tell me with words, I’d really appreciate you letting me know you are ok.” That’s how this book felt sometimes. What. A. Buzz. Kill. Thankfully, the rest of the scenes were hot enough that I tuned out the annoying words in the beginning of a scene and focused on Nick J Russo’s voice instead.

loved this book!

This book had everything I love all wrapped into one sweet, sexy read. A total virgin and a kind, caring man to teach him the ropes sexually. Kieran was awesome and Alex was so young and naive. Watching them guide Alex through his sexual discovery on their path to falling in love was just so good.
Oh and Nick Russo, swoon...he was amazing as always. Just so sexy and spot on with all of the emotions. I could listen to him forever.

Still My Favorite

I read these books years ago and to this day, The Closer You Get is still my favorite. The audio narrated by Nick J Russo just enhanced the story between Kieran and Alex. I can re-read and now re-listen to this book at least every 6 months and never get tired of their love story.
