***ARC provided by Netgalley for honest review***
This is book one of a new series called ‘The Bourbon Street Boys’.
I have mixed feelings about this book. First, I found the circumstances that led May Wexler (the heroine) to meet Ozzie (the hero – and I don’t recall his last name is ever provided in the book…) in a shady bar a bit of a stretch. If I had received a text from my sister saying ‘come get me and the kids at this shady bar’, I would have called and asked her what the hell she was thinking. May obviously doesn’t do this.
Second, Ozzie is extremely one-dimensional. I learned almost nothing about him in this book other than he looks horrible in a beard and he’s hot without one. The secondary characters have a little more story line and I honestly found myself more interested in them than the main characters.
What keeps this book from being a complete dud is the dialogue. There were parts that had me giggling out loud. It was fast and witty and honestly saved this book. However, it wasn’t enough to make me recommend this book and I’m not sure I will read any more of the series.
