Review: I have not had chance to read any books by this author, so I was a bit leery at what to expect. The cover and title were what caught my attention. Talk about a quirky lift to me. However once I started reading I realized that I missed what had happened in another book. There was no sign that this was a series so I had no clue about it. I felt like I missed the first kiss.
As for the story it was well written and pretty damn hot, but also long-winded. Once I started reading it felt like there was not hot sex other than fantasies between them. I almost put the story down to read later, because it just felt off to me. However, I am glad that I did read it because it was a funny, quirky and cute story that was very entertaining.
Nick was the manager of the Irish pub and his sights are set on Fatboy, their bouncer. On Valentine’s Day Davis had kissed Nick. Which was bizarre to say the least, because as far as Nick had known the man was straight.
Since that sexy kiss, all Nick can think about and dream about is Davis. There are some very heated looks between these two and some hot groping going on but that is about it. It would seem people were out to cock block them both. They couldn’t even get the same days off. Nick didn’t ever think anything would ever happen, that is until someone else took special interest in Nick.
Davis has been falling in love with Nick from the moment he set eyes on him. However his ass was in the closet because of his father. But when a sexy guy from a team starts flirting with his man, Davis has to make a choice. Things about to heat up.
Now for me there were several issues that were bugging me on this story. For one, these two couldn’t manage to get it on at any time, it wasn’t like they worked twenty-four/seven. It just doesn’t come off right.
Then Davis is scared of his daddy, I mean please the man is close to being thirty and has a job, what the hell is with the scared of coming out of the closet.
The fun part of the story was the jealous behavior, idiot band members, and feisty little people. They made the story quite entertaining. I loved the whole bar fight.
Now overall, the story was very entertaining, but too long for me to really love. It just came off farfetched. Half way through I wanted to just put the book down and walk away. However I was glad that I hadn’t but it was close.
The characters were very loveable and feisty as hell, which made for a better story. I have to admit though that this would not be a story that I would read more than once.
