#smalltown #friendstolovers #oppositesattract #spicy

A hilarious opposites attract romance where a swoony bartender who has sworn off relationships finds himself struck by the sassy beauty sipping on his cocktail… until she admits to be searching for a man to appreciate her extra curves in a very permanent sense.

I used to believe love was easy to find.
My whirlwind romance would begin once I was ready to take the plunge.
Spoiler alert—every failed first date on record suggests otherwise.

Just when I’m beginning to fault my lofty standards, Garrett Foster saunters onto the scene.
The football star turned bar owner is quick to volunteer his services.
He vows to deliver the best version of Mr. Right—just to prove first impressions deserve a second glance.

I’d question these seemingly selfless intentions if Garrett’s reputation didn’t answer for itself.
Shameless flirting aside, it’s well-known that the established bachelor doesn’t plan to settle down. Ever.
He treats commitment like a bad habit he kicked in college.
That makes him a very eligible sidekick.

At least until his actions start speaking louder than words.
Almost to the suggestive tune that he’s making me miss on purpose.
Or maybe I’m just falling for the guy who claims that he’s not the one for me…

My Thoughts:

Small town romances that give me laughs, along with plenty of swooning, are what I’ve known to come and love from Harloe Rae!

Grace has had her fill of dealing with guys who aren’t good for more than a good time. She wants her own prince charming and she’s not willing to settle for less. Garrett is Mr. Fun-In-The-Moment and is definitely not looking to settle. But these two have a pull that they can’t seem to fight. It’s so much fun to watch them try, though!

Garrett is a little possessive (in the good kind of way!) and even though he agrees to being Grace’s friend while helping her find Mr. Charming, he is falling fast without admitting it to himself. He was burned by an ex who left him high and dry when the next bigger and shinier man came along. Grace is very much her opposite, full of heart, love, and honesty.

There are a lot of quirky moments throughout the book, and I found all of them endearing. One of my favorites was their visit to the bed and breakfast. The banter is fun, and I love how Garrett corrupts Grace into picking up some of his humor to use on her own. From the beginning, Garrett dubs Grace ‘soulmate’ and continuously expresses that sentiment through his actions (even when he can’t/won’t admit it to himself).

It was fun catching up with Jake, Harper, and Sydney — even more so, Sydney’s interaction with Bradley (future couple??!!). I hope to see more of all these characters and their shenanigans!
