When his younger brother loses interest in online dating, hot, bearded, bartender extraordinaire, Joe Collins, only intends to log into his account and shut it down. Until he reads about her.
Alex Parks is funny, friendly, and pretty much everything he's been looking for in a woman. And in no time at all they're emailing up a storm, telling each other their deepest darkest secrets... apart from the one that really matters.
And when it comes to love, serving it straight up works better than with a twist.
by Kylie Scott
Going out of her comfort zone and visiting her online-crush on his birthday wasn’t probably a smart move but Eric hasn’t responded to any of Alex’ mails in a week. Turns out, the guy Alex thought she had been talking to for half a year doesn’t know her. It was his brother, the ruggedly handsome, bearded, long-haired and so-not-her-type Joe. She is furious and determined to fly back home on the next day. A vicious case of the flu, however, thwarts her plans. And that liar Joe? He is annoyingly tenacious and wants to take care of her.
Joe is a sweetheart from bottom to top. He is hard working, serious, reliable and the rock everyone leans on when things go downhill. He takes care of people, is a gentleman, despite his rugged looks, and feels deeply. Joe’s quiet demeanor is in contrast to Alex’ quirkiness, yet he has that sense of humor that blindsides you. He is the whole package and I adored him from the start.
Alex is one of those heroines I always admire because I want to be like them. She knows her flaws and is totally unapologetic about them. She is a commitment-phobe, she has never been in a serious relationship. She’d rather have hook-ups, intimacy scares the living daylights out of her.
Once my guard was down, due to complete and utter exhaustion, Joe had cuddled me. It was terrible, disgusting. Fingers caressing me, lips pressing soft kisses to my shoulder and the back of my neck. Normally I’d never allow it, but it felt so good.
“I don’t see anyone having your back, and to me that is unacceptable.”
“Basically,” he said, voice little more than a rumble, “with your permission, I just want to hold you down and make love to you for a good long time, watching your face as you come.”
I am new to this author’s writing but I think the first page already made her an auto-buy. Her snarky and hilarious writing style put a perma-grin on my face. I am already addicted and want MORE! If you love a humorous story with depth go get this book. I hope you’ll love it as much as I did.
When it came to Joe Colins, my pussy was a wanton whore. And seriously, who could blame it. His body was one big beautiful playground.
