There aren’t many things sexier than a hot young man, with blondish hair, a wicked grin, a sexy mouth, a beer at the ready…. and a kilt! Jamie Donovan is sex on a stick, or as I said before, sex on a kilt with construction boots. He is the bad boy, the black sheep of the family, the “irresponsible” Donovan brother, who works at the brewery as the bartender and public face of the brewery, flirts with anything female, and has a reputation for sleeping around (and being damn good at it!)
But there’s a whole other side to him and it was so sweet to see that he is actually looking for recognition, looking to belong and feel comfortable. He loves his family and wants to prove to them that he is not the fuck-up they see him as. But he has a hard time of proving this to his brother! They had a lot of family conflict in this book, which at times was almost too much to read and maybe one of the reasons why this wasn’t a 5 star read for me.
Now onto the romance. I’m sooooo happy I was confused and wrong about who was Jamie’s HEA. I actually thought he would end up with Monica (from book 1) and I really couldn’t see how that would work out, being that she had betrayed his family. But I’m happy to report it’s not her! We meet Olivia Bishop when she first goes into the brewery with her book club friends and they are all drooling over Jamie, especially when he bends over with his kilt *sigh* where was I? Oh yeah! So she’s divorced, her ex is totally crazy and stalkerish in a way, and she hasn’t been able to get back in the dating game.
So when Jamie ends up as her student on one of her college classes about restaurant development and has a proposition for her, she can’t refuse. She will help him with his plans for the Brewery and she will get some no strings attached fun!
And let me tell you, Jamie knows how to show a girl a good time! He can melt the panties off ANY girl! I have one complaint though… after all the drooling we get to do over his kilt, the one time they have sex with him wearing it, it’s a “fade to black” moment. I feel cheated!!!! LOL
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
