READ MY REVIEW

DauntlessDenault_ebook

Blurb

He’s everything I’ve ever wanted, at the worst possible moment.

One and done. That’s always been my motto when it comes to guys, because I’m not about to pull someone else into the closet my parents have locked me inside. I’ve been waiting years to claim my inheritance and live the life I want to live–out, free, and oh yeah, rich.

So why is the universe dropping the sexy farm boy with the lazy smile into my life right now? When Bowen Whitlock says he’ll join my band, and later my bed, I know one time won’t be enough.

But loving Bowen is dangerous for me. And he has his own struggles, like keeping his family afloat and trying not to get fired from his job at Vino and Veritas. But he lives his life with an authenticity that gives me a tantalizing taste of living my truth.

My secret relationship with Bowen is everything, until someone betrays us in the worst possible way…

About The Author

Victoria Denault head

Victoria is  represented by Kimberly Brower of Brower Literary.

Victoria’s debut novel, One More Shot, was released by Hachette June 2, 2015. Since then she hasn’t stop writing. She became a full-time author in 2017 and expanded from sports romance to contemporary, small-town, and M/M. In the near future she hopes to pen books in even more genres like historical, paranormal, book club fiction and thrillers.

Victoria’s love of books began at 12 when she picked up her first Sweet Valley High and the obsession grew from there. Her favorite childhood gift remains the 1930s typewriter her parents found at a garage sale which actually wasn’t a gift for her. It was meant to be a display piece in their front hall but Victoria snuck it into her bedroom and it was on that typewriter she first began pounding out her own stories.

Victoria, her husband Jack and their chihuahua Gus live in a 222 year old home with character, charm and more spiders than she cares to think about. When not writing books she can usually be found on a beach somewhere. Her favorite beaches are La Concha in San Sebastian, Spain, Zuma in Malibu, California and Ocean Park, Maine.

Opposites attract romance rounds off an excellent return to this series

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great way to round out this excellent return to the expanded World of True North and the Vino & Veritas location in particular.

While I wasn’t a big fan of the casual dope smoking in this book, it didn’t detract from the lovely romance at the heart of the storytelling.

Both Bowen and Chase had their foibles, their faults and strengths but when it came down to the nitty-gritty, both displayed immense honesty and courage to admit what was in their hearts.

I’ve not read this author before but I enjoyed the family she created with Bowen and his siblings, I loved the friendship Chase had with two of his band mates.

While there’s an instant attraction between the two men, I loved that they took their time to graduate beyond hand jobs and blow jobs, slowly getting to know each other more and put down solid foundations.

I also liked the the dramatic elements in the book came from events in the narrative that felt organically developed and not thrown in for the sake of it.

My only other comment would be that Chase is supposed to be almost 28, Bowen a couple of years younger, but they read far more like new adult characters in their early 20s to me than men approaching their 30s.

Overall though this was a really sweet ending to the series and I hope Sarina continues to return back to the lovely wine bar and bookstore in the future.
