Alex has been talking to a man whom she met on an online dating site. Never one to pursue relationships, she takes a big leap and jumps on a flight to meet and surprise the man she has been corresponding with. But, once she meets him, she discovers their entire friendship is essentially a scam.
Joe is used to spreading himself thin and sacrificing his happiness for his family and friends. So when he innocently meets a woman on his brothers dating profile, he doesn’t realize their interaction will become something real and just for him.
Alex has never wanted a long term relationship, while Joe seems to be intent on making her feel things… whether she wants to or not.
“It’s not making love, it’s sex. And God, you and the eye contact.” My shoulders slumped, body sagging. “Why?”
I thoroughly enjoyed this second book in the Dive Bar series, where the first book was funny and mostly lighthearted, this book had the characters dealing with some larger issues. We get to revisit all of the past cast of characters, along with some new ones and see how their relationships and friendships are evolving. Funny, sweet and showing the depth of friendship and being there for someone. A must read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
