Kieran Frost’s plan for a night of three way sex with Rhett and Ethan is changed when Rhett’s daughter drags Kieran to a bar to meet college student Alex Corbin.  Finding Alex to be very appealing, Kieran undertakes the challenge of introducing Alex into actually experiencing his natural inclination. 

The Closer You Get is the sequel to The Distance Between Us.  The theme is self-discovery for Alex but as the story progresses, it also becomes somewhat of a discovery for Kieran as well.  The storyline illustrates all the first experiences for Alex; first kiss as well as first experimental sex variations to determine Alex’s degree of pleasure.  Over a period of time, Kieran and Alex declare their love for each other, which is not totally convincing; considering Alex is indecisive about everything along with Kieran, who is deeply rooted in his fear of commitment. The lack of emotional growth demonstrated between the characters gives the impression that Kieran and Alex remained in a friends with benefits relationship with the sex lessons continuing until one or the other decides to move on. 

L.A. Witt has created a charming story that fans of sweet romance will find enjoyable.
