Beck O'ckley is ruthless in the boardroom...and the bedroom. He's never been with the same woman twice, and vows he never will. With a past as twisted as his, meaningless sex keeps the demons at bay. His motto: One and done. No harm, no foul.

Harlow Glass is the most hated girl in town. The beautiful artist is penniless, jobless and homeless. When she sneaks into Beck's home—her ancestral estate—for food, she's shocked by his early return...and her immediate, sizzling and intense attraction to him.

For the first time in Beck's life, he can't get a woman out of his mind. All too soon, friendship blooms into obsession and he'll have to break her heart...or surrender his own
The second book in the Original Heartbreakers series tells the story of the second hottest person in Strawberry Valley, Oklahoma and the number one loneliest person in the Valley.

When Beck O’cley moved to Strawberry Valley with his two best friends, Jase and West they purchased the most beautiful ranch in the Valley to start anew. The moment her home was sold to the three friends, Harlow Glass knew that there would never be a chance of getting it back. Since her mother died and due to her horrible behavior in the past, no one in the town will hire her. Harlow is homeless, penniless and struggling to get by.

Beck is the town’s most famous bachelor. Every woman wants to be with him even though it’s only for one night. Beck has a motto: one and done. A night is all it takes for his life to change forever. Since no one will hire Harlow she will have to find another way to make ends meet. Visiting her former home to find some food when no one is there is something she’s willing to do to survive. What she wasn’t counting on was Beck arriving early with his flavor of the night and catching her stealing his pie.

Beck is shocked to realize that the girl who used to live where he now lives is the infamous but surprisingly gorgeous Harlow Glass. The moment they meet sparks ignite. Beck wants Harlow in his bed but Harlow won’t settle just for one night. Harlow refuses to be with him but that doesn’t mean that Beck will let her continue living the way she does. The more time he spends with her the more he comes to care about her. He gives her a new home and a job at his company and asks for nothing in return. Just being around her is enough for Beck but not for Harlow. She can’t understand why he doesn’t strive for more.

The time has come for the most wanted bachelor to reveal his secrets and prey that he is enough for the woman he never saw coming.

I loved the hotter you burn. I was really excited when I read the blurb and later when the cover was revealed but reading the book was a total different experience. It was abjofuckinglutely incredible. It was also different from the first book as there is no major plot twist just the most stubborn alpha male ever. Harlow had to dig deep to convince Beck he was more than enough, he deserved his HEA.

We also get to see Jase and Brook Lynn, Kenna and even West and Jessie Kay. I really can’t wait for their story. There is so much tension between those two. It will be a miracle if Strawberry Valley survives when they collide.

Another 5 star book for Gena Showalter!

Highly recommended!
