Review: Bad Taste In Men

Bad Taste in Men
Book Three Clover Park Series
By: Kylie Gilmore
Releasing July 14th, 2014

Something's Brewing Between Friends…
Rachel Miller knows opening a café with coffee and pastries will make her struggling bookstore the place to hang out. But when the bank turns her down and her best friend Shane steps in, she vows business will never ruin their friendship.
Gourmet ice-cream maker Shane O’Hare knows food, not women. To sweep Rachel off her feet, he secretly sells his beloved ’67 Shelby Mustang and becomes a partner in her café. And then she sets him up with a friend.
As they build the café together, and Rachel learns what Shane has sacrificed for her, she finds herself falling for him. Now way too much is riding on the success of this business venture—her career, her best friend, and her heart.

Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS


Just Friends

That's a line you'll see a lot in this book. Why? Because, readers, our dear heroine Rachel is STUBBORN!  Oh yes. See, she's got this friend Shane. Well, Shane wouldn't mind being much more than friends, but someone *cough Rachel cough* is digging her heels at the idea.  She's had a bad taste in men, and she's a little leery of messing up something good with her friend, someone she's counted on and can go to in a time of need. Yeah...okay. I can get that. 

But Shane, he'd do anything for her. He's loved her for years. And now Rachel comes to him with a new idea and needing help, so he makes a big decision and helps her. Eventually...he tells her how he feels.

I gotta dig a friends to lovers story, and Ms. Gilmore's 3rd book in the Clover Park Series  hits the spot. A great dash of humor, a few pinches of steam, and a whole lotta love. You also get to see the previous characters as they make an appearance in this book, too.  This is a perfect, light read that I enjoyed. Gilmore has won me over with everything I've read and she's on my auto buy list. I think she's on my top list of new authors for 2014.  So....when's the next book from you now, dear author? Don't make this reader wait too long!
