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.
Oh, how I’ve loved this series. And to finally get a book about Frankie, well… it was perfect.
Frankie Bell is out and proud and high maintenance. His life in New York isn’t what he’d been expecting a year ago when his bosses ended up in prison and the company fell apart. Temp jobs have gotten him nowhere and he’s better than this. So when Holden asks him to Alaska to plan his wedding, he’s got nothing to lose by taking a few months of vacation from his life.
Barrett has lived in Sawyer’s Ferry, Alaska his entire life. Everyone knows him and he’s got a business that he runs and he doesn’t need more than that. When the whirling dervish named Frankie arrives in town, he turns his business AND his heart upside down and shows him that there’s more to life than work.
I love that Frankie is a makeup wearing, hip-cocking femme with a love for all things glittery. The best part of him, though, is that he is SMART. He’s got a good head on his shoulders, he’s reliable, funny, well mannered, and loving. And when he sees something he wants, he goes all in.
Barrett was so giving it touched my soul. He had everything to lose and I loved how much he wanted Frankie. He was the perfect fit.
Cate Ashwood can write romance. She sweeps you up into the moment and you get lost in the feels. It’s no longer about the words you read, but the squeeze in your heart. This story had me and didn’t let go. Very well done.
