He disguises himself in the city of Portland, Oregon, determined to beat down his demons and get his life back on track. Becoming infatuated with the quirky loner behind the counter at his favorite coffee shop wasn’t part of the plan.

My name is Sidney Ellis and this is my story of finding love twice—the first when I needed it most and the second when I never saw it coming.

Series : Kingston Ale House, #4
Release date : January 16th 2017
Blurb : I like to think of myself as a man of pleasure…I enjoy a good pint of ale, being in the arms of a beautiful woman, and living by my own rules. The only thing I try to avoid? Commitment. And I’ve got a three-year success rate to prove it.I wasn’t planning on Grace—the beautiful, funny, totally off-limits massage therapist who keeps popping up in my life. She’s on a six-month mission to rid her life of toxins. No alcohol. No red meat. And, yeah, no men. I’m talking full-on man cleanse.I know I should walk away, but I can’t…and the only way to keep her in my life is to live by her rules. I’ll need to prove to a woman who’s lost all trust in men that I’m worthy of her love. And do it all without so much as a single kiss.The only problem? If I win, I’ll lose the one thing I swore I’d never give up. My heart.
Review : Worth The Wait was not the first book I read by A.J. Pine, so I knew I would at least like her writing style. Question was as this is a book in the middle of the series – would I be able to follow the story not knowing what happened before.
The answer is yes – it is possible to read this book as a standalone you only have to face possible spoilers on previous books ( I usually do not mind them – in fact they only increase my tendency to read the those books if I like what I hear about them)
My thoughts on Jeremy and Grace – well both have been burned by relationships and have either trust issues, are not willing to put their heart on the line or are in completely unwilling to be in a relationship.
But the reader instantly notices the sparks between them and will be drawn into their building relationship. The author manages to catch and keep the readers attention throughout the whole book. The story is well developed and the pace is steady, the reading felt good and I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Therefore it is easy to recommend
