Dating is hard. Dating in a small town? Impossible.
Leave it to my little brother to come back home announcing he knocked up his fiancée and the wedding has been moved…to next month.
When he tries to set me up with one of his football buddies, I tell him I’ll be bringing my own plus-one.
Only problem? I’m hopelessly single.
Enter Sullivan Scott, AKA my hero.
We strike a deal: he’ll pretend to be my boyfriend, and I’ll use my mechanic skills to help him fix his boat. That’s it. No funny business, and definitely no feelings involved.
Sully’s quiet and reserved, and I’ve been told I’m too much to handle on a good day. We’re opposites, and neither of us is looking for anything serious.
I’m certain we can keep this strictly platonic…
We have been waiting for what seems like forever for Sully’s book, and it does not disappoint! There is so much I loved about this one. It is definitely my favorite of the Slice series.
Thea is amazing. She is a tiny, adorable, 100% unfiltered mechanic who is succeeding in a male dominated industry. She’s been burned, though, and afraid to catch feelings again and get her heart broken again. Sully is just perfection. Three books of buildup were absolutely worth the payout here. I adored their relationship, their banter, and their chemistry. These two absolutely belong together. And while this is a standalone, each couple from the previous four books (and Simon, owner of Slice) appear often so there is a lot of fun interaction, dialogue, and shenanigans involved. But don’t worry, if for some wild reason you haven’t read the other books you absolutely won’t feel lost or like you’re missing something in this one. Although if you loved the novella A Slice of Love and want more Frankie and Jonas, Thea is Jonas’s sister and they are both in this book. Score!! I also loved Thea’s relationship with her family, both with her parents and with her brother. As an aside, I absolutely adore that lots of the parents in this author’s books have long marriages and they are still shown as happily in love and having healthy romantic lives.
I tried to pick out lines to highlight, but I couldn’t narrow it down and would basically be copying and pasting the entire book so instead I’ll just drop two of my favorite moments that made me laugh out loud: rock stuffed teddy bears, and chapter 13. Yes, the whole chapter. You will understand when you read this.
About the author:
I’m a Missouri-raised gal, but currently live in South Carolina with my Marine veteran husband. I spend my days begging him for a cat, and I survive off coffee, pizza, and sarcasm. When I’m not writing, you can find me binge-watching various TV shows, especially Supernatural and One Tree Hill. I like cold weather, buy more paperbacks than I’ll ever read, and I never say no to brownies.
