Blog Tour! Come Closer By Brenda Rothert


Sometimes appearances deceive. Take me, for instance. I look like a respectable doctor with his shit together, but the rural Montana mental hospital I work at is actually a sanctuary from my demons. At just thirty-five years old, I’ve already failed on an epic scale. Treating patients at Hawthorne Hill is part of my atonement. I’ve found peace when a new patient turns me inside out. Allison Cole is a beautiful, haunted survivor who fell into silence after witnessing a murder. But even without words, I’m drawn to her. The closer we get, the more I’m tempted to cross my professional boundaries and give in to my desire. Soon I find myself in a desperate race to put the pieces of Allison’s silence together. Her life becomes inextricably entwined with mine as I fight to save the second chance I never thought I’d have. I’ll break whatever rules I have to in order to protect this woman who’s been to hell and back. For her, I’ll do harm.

I will admit going into Come Closer I was expecting something different than what I got but here is the thing, I really liked that it was different, that it wasn’t the normal cookie cutter romance that is out there.  It was suspenseful, emotional and one with twists I didn’t see coming.

The relationship between Max and Allison is one of patient and Dr., but it is so much more as well. It is a connection that heals, that is forbidden and one that is hard to really describe without giving away any spoilers.  I liked the way that the author built up to what happens, the suspense the twists they all add another layer of depth to the story and I really was hooked and didn’t want to put it down. I also liked how the focus wasn’t just on the secondary characters mental illnesses, but that they were a person also and should be treated as such.

 Although I enjoyed Come Closer there were a few things that had me lowering my rating from the 5 that it could have been to the 4 I believe it is. I do wish that certain people and situations would have had more closure; it did sort of feel that certain things were swept under the rug and didn’t have the completion as I would have hoped for.  Besides those things Come Closer is one I do recommend and I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
