Six Month Rule
Kingston Ale House #2
Author: A.J. Pine
Release Date: July 18th 2016
She created the game, but the rules are about to change.
Taurus: Hold fast to your single-minded nature today—no matter how long her legs or how lush her red lips.
Gemini: You were a shining star last night, but reality can be a real—well, you get the picture. Just remember: Tall, dark, and British equals no corner office for you.
Will Evans never wanted a reason to stay.
Holly Chandler wants nothing more than for him to go.
But neither one is prepared for what can happen in six months. Because it doesn’t matter what you want when what you need walks out the door.
Holly’s been busting her butt to make partner at Trousseau and there’s no way she’s going to let some stuck-up British arsehole get in her way—no matter how drop-dead gorgeous he is. But that doesn’t mean she can’t have a little fun in the process. She has a six-month rule: date just long enough for the honeymoon phase to wear off, then walk away before anyone gets hurt. If they both know the rules up front, walking away will be a piece of cake. Or maybe not…
*SIX MONTH RULE is a stand alone book in a connected series.
I didn’t think this one would be my typical read, but figured I’d check it out anyways. And it turned out to be so much fun. I really enjoyed it and am glad I got the chance to read an early copy of it.
One thing I really enjoyed was that it didn’t have the typical insta-love or hate between our main characters. Sure there were a few bumps in the road, but it all seemed right and I loved that Holly and Will’s interactions progressed naturally. Their relationship developed at a good pace and you could really see how they were able to fall for each other.
Plus, getting to see Will with his daughter was too cute. His devotion to her and wanting to be there for her really added to his character. We also got to see Holly’s devotion to her job and her love for her older sister. Both Will and Holly had strong motivations and desires that rounded out their characters.
This was definitely a fun read for me and a sweet romance, all the way. I’m glad I decided to check it out and I hope you enjoy it to!
