Fun. Flirty. And no follow through. 
 
FINN O'MEARA has a slick one-liner for every occasion and loves to talk a big game. Tending bar at McBride’s Public House gives him plenty of opportunities to meet the ladies—to take them home and show them a good time. He’s so talented with his tongue, they don't seem to mind that he never takes it past third base. 
 
ADELAIDE HUNTINGTON is infinitely more comfortable with her PC than her peers. She prefers to work from the comfort of her overstuffed chair doing what she loves: graphic and web design. Only occasionally hanging out with her surrogate grandmas until an infuriating, silver tongued man charms his way in.
 
While he’s trying hard to prove there’s more to him than cheesy pick-up lines, Adelaide uncovers another layer to Finn. 
 
A twist that no one would ever imagine.

 
Romantic Comedy, Contemporary Romance.
Dual-POV.
Book #1.5 of a series, but can be read as a stand-alone.  I haven’t read the first book and I understood the story, even though I will go back and read the first book to continue the series. I’m certain I will have a better experience after reading the first book.
  • Addictiveness: Medium addictiveness. Very fast and easy read, that can be done in one sitting.
  • Character: hero 5/5, heroine 5/5, secondary characters 5/5, growth 5/5, real 5/5  Wow! Both characters are easy to love, connect and understand.  Finn is very extrovert, a big flirt, that uses this shallow persona to hide past mistakes and guilt. Adelaide is the opposite. She is an introvert that avoids people. She is straight to the point and not a very good flirt. She definitely provides Finn a challenge, something that he really needed. They are good for each other, each offering the other something they need. I have to mention that are many great secondary characters, all the grandmas, the boys of the pub, and Eric. I can’t forget Eric, the perfect roommate. 🙂
  • Cover: art 5/5, title 5/5, subtitle 5/5, color-font 5/5, buy 5/5 I’m obsessed with book covers and I love to “read”snippets of the story on it. I love this one! Really, I can imagine Finn looking at this cover. The subtitle is perfect and the colors used works really well. It feels young and flirty like Finn. I would buy this book without reading the blurb.
  • Freshness: This may not have anything that I could say “oh, wow, so original”, but the overall feeling is FRESH, NEW. We even get an unexpected conflict.
  • Plot: believable 4/5, conflict 5/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 3/5, enjoyment 5/5, opening 5/5, pace 5/5, setting 5/5, subplots 5/5, twists 5/5  Good opening and great ending. Cool conflict and fun dialogues. Fast-paced with enough subplots to enhance the story. An unexpected twists  that gave this story a bit of drama. Sexy, fun read! The really perfect amount for a novella.
  • Romance: believable 5/5, chemistry 4/5, description 5/5, development 5/5, steam 3/5 I love these sweet, flirty, fun romance. It has a young feel that make it all believable inside the timeframe of the story. A few good smut scenes to add to the appeal of the book.
  • Writing Style: Great characters, fun plot and cute romance!

 

  • I guess if I had read the first book of the series I would have liked it even better, to understand the boys of the pub better.
My first book by the author, but I’m looking forward to read this series. I must go back and read the first book, so I can continue.
