A Pizza My Heart by Teagan Hunter

 

 

Most people would probably be
embarrassed to land themselves back in their hometown and working at a pizzeria
after an ugly divorce.

Not me.


It’s home, and I have one last shot to make Wren Daniels see me as more than just her brother’s best friend.

When the opportunity to show her what’s been right in front of her this whole time presents itself, I take it, holding nothing back this time.
Wren thinks we’re pretending, but there’s nothing fake about the way I feel.

After all, she’s always had…a pizza my heart.

Standalone Brother’s Best Friend Romcom! 


My review:

I have a very short list of authors whose books I can preorder or one-click buy and be 100% confident I will love. Teagan Hunter is one of those authors. Her books have the perfect blend of humor without being eye-rollingly silly, heart without excess angst, substance without senseless drama, and passion without sounding like a porn script. She has also mastered the art of writing twentysomethings with maturity – something many New Adult authors haven’t figured out. Not that they don’t act like twentysomethings, but they also don’t act like fifteen year olds who can legally drink.

Anyway, A Pizza My Heart. Foster and Wren. This book is everything. Slice 10 (chapter 10) made me laugh out loud. The characters made me fall in love with them all. Randy and Blythe, Drew, Simon, Sullivan (he MUST have a story to be told!), and even Winston all drew me into their little world. Foster and Wren, though, are fire. They are the most perfect book couple I’ve read in a very long time. I loved their teasing, their humor, and their sweetness. And they were hot.  I wanted to stand up and cheer, though, when Foster was asking Winston (Wren’s twin brother and Foster’s best friend) if he was okay with them together. Winston’s answer? “You’re my best friend. She’s my sister. Big fucking whoop. I’m not here for the dramatics of that bullshit bro-code shit. Can’t help who your heart digs.”

THANK YOU! Now, let Winston go visit alllllll the other books with brother’s best friend tropes and teach them a thing or two! The whole bro code, controlling who the sister can date thing is a huge pet peeve of mine and Winston’s response was the perfect one.

Now, drop everything and go read this book. It’s free with Kindle Unlimited, or you can buy Kindle or paperback versions.

PS I want a real-life restaurant like Slice. That place sounds amazing.

Series: The Dimarco Series #6
Author: Jennifer Hanks
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Blurb
One. Chance. Encounter.
That’s all it should have been. 
Angry, cold and intimidating is a bad combination for any man, but for Tyler Morgan who has lost everything, it’s who he’s become.
And all he wants is to be left alone.
Until bad decisions and a tragedy bring a woman into his life who refuses to let him be alone any longer.  A woman who’s capable of looking beyond the hard shell and the cold encounters to the man beneath.  A woman determined to teach him how to live again after he’s lost the most important things in his life.
Grace Dimarco has a secret.
Growing up with seven older brothers has always made her feel it’s her against them, with no one in her corner, and no one who understands her need to become her own
person.
Until she meets a man who encourages her to be the woman she needs to be.  A man whose sheer size is intimidating to most, but comforting to her.  A man who
will take on anyone in her defense.
Including her brothers.
But someone knows Grace’s secret and is using it to his advantage.  Someone who’s forcing her to face her own fears.  Someone who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.
What he wants is Grace Dimarco.
But Tyler Morgan isn’t willing to lose the woman who saved him.
And he will do whatever it takes to protect her.

My review:

I have been wanting to read this book since the brief hospital scene occurred in a previous book. I was intrigued and just knew there was a story with Grace and Tyler and that her brothers would make things difficult for them. But this was so much better than I anticipated! Tyler is a gentle giant who avoids confrontation until he is forced into it, but his size and reputation on the field make everyone assume the worst about him. Grace, sweet soul that she is, sees past that and embraces the side of himself that Tyler tries to hide. When his world is upended she is the only one in his corner and she brings her entire family into his life. Likewise, when Grace’s seven brothers talk over her and treat her like a child who cannot make her own decisions, Tyler is there to get them to stop and listen to her and back Grace up when she’s used to fighting her battles against her family on her own.

Every DiMarco book is like catching up with old friends. While they are all standalone stories, the eight siblings are so involved in each others’ lives that no one story is 100% finished. We get new babies and new friends with each addition to this series. And Jack and Anna DiMarco are goals.

I loved how Tyler was able to stop the brothers’ chaos when they needed to stop and focus as a unit on their sister to keep her safe. And Sophie and Seth just stole my heart. I was Seth as a child and I loved how the little family that came about helped him to bloom. But Grace and Tyler balance each other out so well and are so very good together. Their book didn’t just live up to my expectations but surpassed them. I was sad that it ended.
