This is such a sweet romance in the Campo Royale series
The Barkeep and the Bookseller by V.L. Locey
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
I’ve very much been enjoying Vicki’s Drag Queen club set Campo Royale series and this one is absolutely delightful.
Featuring a single dad bartender whose daughter has Mosaic Downs, a bookstore owner who’s had a horrible experience, a cast of interfering siblings, best friends, family and Queens, it’s a feel good romance full of love.
It’s not quite slow burn, but there’s obvious care taken in the sexual development of Cord and Jagger’s relationship which makes perfect sense.
It’s on the lower end of the steam scale but it doesn’t mean that the narrative suffers. On the contrary, there’s deep feelings between both men which helps each of them come to positive action in their own lives.
Together they’re just sweetness and I adored how lovingly Jagger embraced Paloma’s additional needs.
Now I’m desperately waiting for the next book which features Jagger’s best friend Nate and a second chance romance with Campo Royale manager Leroy aka Clarice.
