I’m all about pleasure...
A good pint of ale, heating up the sheets with a beautiful woman, and living by my own rules. The only thing I try to avoid? Commitment. And I've got a three-year success rate to prove it.
So why am I suddenly knocked flat on my ass whenever Grace is around? The beautiful, funny, totally off-limits massage therapist may knead the knots out of my back, but she sure as hell makes other parts stiff. She’s on a mission to rid her life of toxins. No alcohol. No red meat. And, yeah, no man parts.
If I’m to have any chance of being the guy she breaks her man-cleanse with, I’m going to have to live the next three months by her no-kissing rules…which means getting all the mileage we can out of foreplay without actually touching…each other. No one ever said I wasn’t creative.
I’ll show her we’re worth the wait—and then I’ll show her just what it is she’s been waiting for.
After a horrible breakup, Grace follows the advice of a popular book to cleanse her life of all negativity. She is three months into her six month cleanse when she meets Jeremy. Jeremy went through a horrible break up of his own three years ago and hasn't committed to anything since. When Grace and Jeremy keep running into together, they agree to friendship since Grace isn't willing to break her cleanse. When Jeremy's ex, the weather girl at the local news station, hears of Grace's cleanse, she pitches it as a puff piece to boost ratings. When Grace has to go on dates for the story, Jeremy agrees to be her wingman but after seeing a few, decides that the man that Grace is going to kiss in three months is him. With a partnership in Kingston Ale House on the table, can Jeremy commit to another thing?
This story was so bittersweet for me. I loved this series and am so sad to see it end. I couldn't put down Jeremy and Grace's story. Separately, these two had so much to get together. Jeremy and his lack of commitment and Grace and all of her secrets. Together, these two were a powerhouse. With Grace swearing off men and Jeremy's ex back in town, I thought this book would have a ton of angst but, while there was some drama, it definitely wasn't a huge part of the story. These two opposites complemented each other so perfectly that I never wanted the story to end. While I'm sad to goodbye to this series, I am really looking forward to what comes next from this author!

WORTH THE WAIT
A quirky read that will have you smiling ... often! A sexy bartender meets a gorgeous massage therapist, they flirt, they go their separate ways ... and then proceed to run into each other a handful more times over the next couple of days, even in different states! Obviously fate has spoken ... right??
Jeremy Denning is a self-proclaimed lover of women! He's a great guy, loyal friend, loves his family ... but he is never going to commit to a relationship again. Previously burned, twice ... well, never going to happen!
Grace Bailey is struggling to prove herself to her family, and trying to help herself grow into a more aware person at the same time. When she meets Jeremy, there's obviously some major attraction there ... but he only wants one thing, and she's not going there!
He tries to walk away ... he really does. She's sworn off bad food, booze and most especially MEN for six months. How can he compete with that? He doesn't even want to right? Well ... maybe!
Jeremy's story - YAY!!!! Bonus - it's fantastic! After having his heart handed to him three years ago Jeremy has been happy living his life free of commitments. A good pint of ale and a beautiful woman was all he needed. Meeting Grace, the beautiful massage therapist, was never part of his plan. Add in the fact that she is currently doing a man-cleanse and he knows he should run - fast. Yet he can't. Something about her calls to him. Could she be the one that he could open his heart to or will she end up hurting him too?
Put this on the must read list. I highly recommend it.
