We’re back in Happily Inc for another visit! I love Susan Mallery’s small towns, quirky characters, real life emotions, and fun plots.
In NOT QUITE OVER YOU, Silver Tesdal, owner of AlcoHaul (a portable bar that can be towed to wedding and party venues) wants to expand. Her high school boyfriend wants to invest in her business. And maybe in her life. The only problem is a secret she’s been keeping from him for a few years.
One thing leads to another and pretty soon they’re partners in business and in bed.
Silver knows she has to come clean and when she does, Drew takes the news hard, but comes around pretty quickly.
Drew’s family has been grooming him for a career and there are certain expectations. Those are part of the reasons Silver broke up with him after high school and not much has changed more than a decade later.
NOT QUITE OVER YOU employs some common romance tropes, but in Mallery’s capable hands they don’t feel overused or stale. I enjoyed Silver and Drew’s wrong-side-of-the-tracks story and I recommend it! Especially if you love fun and funny stories!
I received a free copy of the book from the author in exchange for a honest review. I honestly loved it.
