Rena Jackson is ready. She's worked her tail off to open up her own hair salon, and she's almost ready to quit her job at the dive bar. Rena's also a diehard romantic, and she's had her eye on bar regular Axel Heller for a while. He's got that tall-dark-and-handsome thing going big time. Problem is, he's got that buttoned-up Germanic ice man thing going as well. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Rena's about ready to give up on Axel and find her own Mr. Right.
At six foot six, Axel knows he intimidates most people. He's been crushing on the gorgeous waitress for months. But the muscled mechanic is no romantic, and his heart is buried so deep, he has no idea how to show Rena what he feels. He knows he's way out of his depth and she's slipping away. So, he makes one crazy, desperate play...
|A love story that does not start off that way. Rena has been working at a dive bar to supplement her income until her salon is ready to open. That is going to happen so she is giving her notice. She had hoped that Alex Heller who comes into the bar always would finally notice at least enough to ask her out for a date. Instead, the 6’6” man acts like she does not exist.|
When Alex hears that she will no longer be working at the bar he panics and begins talking to her and then asks her out, she wants to agree but she also wants romance. So, Alex starts to romance her by sending her gifts which are sad sometimes but are also funny. He is leading up to valentine’s day but he has no clue in what he is doing.
This story at times makes laugh it’s just that it does not stay that way. I liked the characters but overall, I felt like I was missing something. I like this author so I will read her books again. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 3 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
