Even though bankers’ hours leave long weekends for romance, cosmic intervention is Grant’s only option when money doesn’t buy happiness and he’s got virginity in spades.
Grant Adams is a twenty-six-year-old bank teller who’s unlucky at love, yet hopelessly hopeful. After years of horrific first dates, he’s convinced he’s saving himself for true love. Surely he has bad taste in men because it couldn’t possibly be his persnickety nature that’s sent them packing.
Tristan Carr has been in a holding pattern since his daughter was born fifteen years ago, which suits his workaholic lifestyle just fine. This ex-Navy turned auto mechanic never wanted anyone interfering with being a weekend dad. For Tristan to rearrange his perfectly orchestrated life, a guy will need to be special. Or in the case of the newest employee at his bank, the guy will need to be adorable, shy, and open to the prospect of forever when it shows up at his window.
For some reason, I’ve not read many of Wade Kelly books. The ones I’ve read are beautifully written and really draw you into the story, this one being no different.
Okay, I’m just going to get the one huge issue I had off my chest because it pretty much plagued me through out the middle to end of the story. Even though Tristan try to claim it was his fault with anger management issues among others and going to sessions to work on it etc. I had issues with every time these two had a disagreement, Tristan ended up taking the blame to make up and Grant would accept, even though Grant would say it was his fault! Accept some responsibility! You had some serious issues as well, Grant! Okay, done.
I think the courtship of this story was one of my favorites, since some of the quirks that Grant has, I’ve got. I totally understood the frustrations and the rewards. The naivete that Grant show for most everything was charming, mostly, but towards the end it became too much.
Tristan, with his hard life lessons. High moral code, love him. Just wish he wouldn’t be a fall guy all the time. I do think these two complemented each other very well.One a teacher, one that needs to learn.
The secondary cast, mainly the daughter and the crazy ex, played to the story line perfectly.
