Last call! At the end of the night, a clean-cut hunk and a rebellious bartender act on their unlikely chemistry in this frisky standalone novel from the author of Eye Candy.
Davis: I’ve had my eye on Grace Buchanan for a while now. Unlike the bubbly blondes I usually date, the feisty, flame-haired bartender both intrigues and bewilders me. Something about Grace—the tattoos? the nose ring?—makes every part of me sit up and beg. There’s only one problem: She hates me. Trading insults and one-liners has become our M.O. But when Grace bets me that I can’t get a date with a non-blonde if my life depends on it, I’m determined to prove her wrong by landing the ultimate non-blonde: her.
Grace: I’m used to regulars hitting on me, and I’ve turned them all down, except for one: Davis Price. I like giving him a hard time, and he’s kind of cute in his suit and tie—if you’re into that kind of thing. Anyway, I don’t care how many blondes he takes home . . . until one of them sidles up to him in my bar. Nuh-uh. But after my little bet with Davis backfires, our first date lands us in the sack. So does the second. And the third. Neither of us wants more than the best sex of our lives. The trouble is, it’s not a question of what I want. It’s what I need. And what I need is Davis.
This is definitely a sweet read anybody will enjoy. Though I couldn’t give it five stars, I did still enjoy it overall.
Grace is a bartender-or a beer mistress as she calls it- at McGreevy she’s used to getting hit on and always turns them down. She never really pays much attention to the man behind the drink but that changes when Davis starts coming to the bar. He has caught her attention. He sits in the same spot in his suit and with his attention on the TV.
Davis is intrigued by Grace and he doesn’t like it. She is the absolute opposite of his regular hookups. He likes them blonde and kind of bubbly, one he can just bring home, do the deed, and never see again. Grace is a redheaded bartender, with tattoos and a nose ring, and sassy attitude.
“Grace Buchanan excites me. I don’t like that Grace Buchanan excites me.”
Davis and Grace were sweet together. I loved their back and forth banters and I laughed out loud throughout.
