I’m his boss. He’s my daughter’s ex-boyfriend. This has nope written all over it.

For twenty-five years, I’ve been in an exclusive, all-consuming relationship with Stone’s Throw Tavern, my family’s local bar.

I don’t need a boyfriend. What I need is a new bartender.

And what I get is Charlie, my daughter’s old college boyfriend, a guy who still acts like he’s chillin’ at the frat house. He was canned from his Wall Street job and escaped to small town Sourwood for a fresh start.

He knows bupkis about bartending, but he makes up for it with his cocky charm…and the tight shirts he wears, which secretly drive me wild. Now I’m making up excuses to hang by the bar during his shifts.

There’s a pile of reasons why I can’t cross the line with an employee. Especially this one. He’s twenty years younger than me, and I’m a foot taller than him. Even on a purely mathematical level, this can’t work.

And yet…

The growing heat between the fratboy and me burns like a shot of whiskey. I just need to keep my beer can in my pants, or else I could lose my business and my daughter.

The Barkeep and the Bro will serve you up a glass of age gap, size difference, boss/employee, grumpy/sunshine, small town romance goodness, garnished with humor and lots of heat. And it won’t even ask for ID. This is the third book in the Single Dads Club series, but can be read as a standalone.



Review by Twinsie Tenise

Mitch is looking for yet another bartender. Staffing his bar is becoming increasingly difficult as the years progress and Mitch is just… tired.
Charlie’s life is in the gutter right now, he’s staying with an old friend and needs a job like yesterday! He finds somewhere locally hiring but he’s not sure Mr. Dekker would want to hire him. You see, Charlie dated Mitch’s daughter. He also dumped Mitch’s daughter so, yeah, there’s also that.
Mitch and Charlie couldn’t hide their mutual attraction. There were multiple things standing in the way of them acting on said attraction. Ignoring it all together seems like a fantastic plan. I didn’t agree with this plan but no one asked me. Annnnnd moving on… when these 2 geniuses finally came to their senses it was fire! I was really looking forward to reading this book and it did not disappoint. Even the parts that irritated me. They were essential to their story and you gotta get through all the annoying stuff to get to the best part so I guess I liked those parts a little bit too. Whatever.

A.J. Truman remembers his college days like it was yesterday, even though it was definitely not yesterday. He writes books with humor, heart, and hot guys. What else does a story need? He loves spending time with his pets and his husband and writing on his sun porch. You can email him at info@ajtruman.com.
