What It’s About:
Five guys. One bar. And a whole heap of sexy trouble…
Liam Callahan is devastatingly handsome, infuriatingly aloof and… my new boss? Put that at the top of the list of ‘Things I Wish I’d Known (Before I Was Panting in His Arms During a Sizzling Midnight Make-out Session.)’
My bartending gig at Rascals was supposed to be a fresh start for me. Now I’m juggling drink orders AND red-hot sexual tension – but I refuse to let Liam’s smoldering stares throw me off my game…
Until one late night leads to another. And another. Liam has a reputation as Mr Heartbreaker, but he’s revealing a whole new side of himself: funny, playful, and most definitely NSFW. But this rascal has made a rule of never getting in too deep, and despite the real connection between us, something’s holding him back.
Can we find a way to put the past behind us and move on? Or will my new beginning end in heartbreak before it’s even begun?
Ballerina turned bartender, Juliet, is the shining star in Katie McCoy’s Heartbreaker (book 3 of her Rascals Series). Is her crush on Liam, one of the owners of the local tavern, Rascals, unrequited or will she break through his barriers and hook him?
Liam is definitely the strong, silent type. The gorgeous financier broods a lot; while he is given a great backstory, it would have been nice to get alittle more dialogue (or thoughts) from him for a better sense of the character.
Juliet, the tragic heroine, is not all that tragic. She has had a major set back, but she is ready to make some changes and more forward in her life. Her key question is whether or not she is moving forward on her own or with a brooding bar owner by her side. These two characters couldn’t be more opposite, but they worked as a couple. They have good chemistry and connection.
The secondary characters are great. The banter is organic and humorous, and you feel the extent of their friendship. I really enjoy the ease of the relationships between the guys and the women in their lives. The Rascals series is so much fun. The friendships, the love stories, and the HFN endings have been great in each of the standalone books.
