I’m about as straitlaced and by the book as they come. They call me Numbers, the man in the office of Burgers and Brew, the restaurant and bar I co-own with my friends. Routine and spreadsheets, that’s how I spend my day. I’m a creature of habit, from the designer clothes to the same girlfriend, I crave the pattern I’ve become dependent on.
Until said girlfriend breaks up with me for the umpteenth time, and I find refuge in a woman who is my exact opposite.
I’m intrigued and completely out of my element, yet that doesn’t stop me from spending time with her. Even if I consider her off-limits, something about her calls to me.
The problem is I just might lose a friend because of it.
Most of the time, I would never look twice at Isaac Thompson. He’s all suits, ties, and expensive dress shoes, and I’m…well, not. My time is spent at the tattoo studio I work at, day and night, designing badass ink for clients who want the best. I have no room in my life for a relationship, nor do I care for the messes they always create.
Until Isaac finds me stranded on the road, and I end up inviting him inside.
Now, I can’t stop thinking about him. He’s so different from any man I’ve ever known, which is why we decide to keep it casual and fun.
Let’s just hope I can keep feelings out of the arrangement, so I don’t get burned.
I fell for these characters right away and wanted them to stay together so badly. So much so that when I sensed things were going a bit off the rails and drama was about to be inserted into my happy little bubble, I actually had to put the book down for a few days and pretend it wasn't happening. Ugh...I should have just kept reading and had trust in Lacey Black, because I ended up loving how everything turned out. But that's me. I run away from heavy emotions, even in my reading. Anyway, I loved Isaac and BJ as a couple. They were so great and I was so happy that Isaac finally got his HEA. What a sweet and deserving guy. But we knew that from the first book. Same Ol' Situation only highlighted that fact. BJ wasn't what either of us was expecting for him, but she couldn't have been more suited. Of course, I also loved more glimpses of Jameson, and can't wait for his book, which is next in the series.
I received a free copy of this book via GMB PR and am voluntarily leaving a review.
