My life sucks.
After spending a year jobless and on the edge of becoming homeless, I’d officially reached a level of desperation that, even if I wasn’t completely broke, retail therapy couldn’t fix.
While Sawyer’s Ferry, Alaska, is the last place on earth I’d ever want to visit, when my best friend, Holden, begs me to fly out and plan his wedding, I can’t say no. What I didn’t expect was to stumble into the administrative chaos at Copper Creek Brewing—or its too-hot-to-be-legal owner.
Clearly the man needs my help, and I’m willing to go above and beyond.
I am screwed.
Six months after my assistant up and quit, I’m not any closer to finding a replacement, and things at the brewery are starting to fall apart.
And then in walks Frankie. He’s not the typical guy you’d find in these parts, and he brings with him a world of confusion. Because as much as I need his help, I can’t seem to keep my eyes—or hands—off him.
He’s supposed to be getting my life in order, but instead there’s a chance he could turn everything upside down.
4 of 5 Stars
I suppose this could be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading book one as that is not only where we meet Frankie, it’s Gage and Holden’s story and this book revolves primarily around Frankie planning their wedding.
Frankie and Barrett’s story is a sweet, low angst somewhat predictable read. I’ve been waiting for Frankie’s story since we met him…his snarky fabulousness drew me in from the beginning.
I love opposites attract but don’t always love stories with men in the closet…usually because someone gets hurt or treated badly. In this case, Barrett does not treat Frankie well when he doesn’t know how to handle his attraction to him.
I have a couple of grumbles with this one. One is other than the brief story about the past he shares with Frankie we don’t learn much about Barrett. The other is the ending felt rushed. Their time apart was longer than their time together, but all happened off-page.
Barrett’s big gesture was a little predictable but still swoon-worthy and I really liked the epilogue (although now I’m wondering if we’ll see more of these two).
Definitely another good one in this series!
