Now for the good stuff.
Goodbye, ovaries. Hello, Bert Forsythe! Le sigh…
Life is good for thirty-nine-year-old restaurateur Bert. It may not have turned out how he expected, but he regrets nothing. Following his divorce, he has followed a tried and tested recipe for ‘dating’, which has suited his commitment-phobe ways to a T. The ladies he’s dated, not so much *snorts*
Wine-rep Drennan McCutcheon is not all she appears to be. With her time in Memphis limited, and a burning attraction impossible to deny, maybe these two can find some inventive ways to pass the time *coughs*
The sexual tension and chemistry for these two was off the charts! One word: sizzling. If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen – wowzer!
I loved every morsel of this story. It’s more than an age gap love story. It’s about how life can throw us curveballs, and how we deal with them can make or break us. We may end up down a path we never envisioned, but it can be the making of us.
“Life isn’t meant to be rendered into long strings of syllables found only in thesauruses. Life is something to revel in. To live in. To savor.”
What starts as some fun quickly escalates as those pesky things called feelings become involved. Will they admit this is something more? If they do, how can they make it work with their lives and responsibilities being in different states?
If you’re like me, you’ll need to put up your DND sign as you devour this book to find out the outcome. I found myself holding my breath with trepidation for the last few chapters and kept my fingers crossed.
Some of my favourite moments in the story were the conversations between Bert, and his soon-to-be-off-to-college son, Grady. Awkward! And, don’t even get me started on the convos between Drennan and her cousin, McKenzie. I was shouting TMI, never mind poor Drennan.
Yeah, so as you can guess, I can’t recommend this book enough. I’m off to add the first two books in the series to my TBR list. While I’m doing that, you are going to one-click this one *winks*
Just do yourself a favour and grab this fab read today!
Bert was a sweetheart such a great guy who, while he is no saint he is happy with flings, short casual relationships, because after his marriage ended, his son became the only thing that mattered in his life and being the best dad he can be to his little guy is one that he takes seriously- no-one else matters.
Drennen on the other hand is so sure of herself, working hard to absorb everything she can in her life before returning home to take over the reins at the family winery, she is a grafter but doesn’t hold back when it comes to dishing out the sass.
I liked the fact that it was Drennen that was almost pursuing Bert, she was determined that she would have him but he was far from being on the same page, and really tried to resist her but dang man, give it a rest, she is perfect from him and I was silently praying that he wouldn’t let her slip through his fingers.
The author delivered on every perspective, the story was beautifully written, packed with the most creative descriptions and vivid details, which encourage and assist in lifting the characters from the page and allowing them to almost dance across the page as I read their story unfolding before me.
The connection between them when it began to take shape was so sensual, their conversations were engaging and funny, their banter was really cute. I enjoyed the fact they challenged each other and that together they were willing to work at what they could have.
Bert and Drennan are a great couple. The story of their romance, going from mutual attraction and slowly morphing into something meaningful, is beautifully written and seems organic, not forced at all. It was a delight to read and I finished it in a day. Some hot and spicy scenes along the way really make them sizzle.
I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
I’d heard lots of positive comments about the Pig and Barley series, so when I got the opportunity to read an arc of Plus One I jumped at the chance. Their relationship doesn’t get off to the smoothest of starts and pleasingly, whilst there is a very strong attraction, there isn’t instant love between the hero and heroine.
Most of the book builds up to the point where Drennan will be returning to California, and it wasn’t until it arrived that either character seemed to think about the(ir) future. What happens next was not what I expected, the author clearly knew how she wanted the story to develop and didn’t feel the need to fall into predictable romance clichés.
There are some lovely sub plots and side stories but most of the book is just about the developing relationship between Bert and Drennan. They are two well developed and entirely believable characters, with undeniable chemistry. The whole story feels ‘real’, especially the scenes with Bert’s family, with down to earth activities and locations.
The only negative I have about the book is that it skips days/weeks between one paragraph and the next. This threw me a few times and I had to re-read the paragraph before I realised what had happened. However once I got used to this it became less of an issue.
