You win some, you lose some.
Back at home with half a college degree after the fiasco of the century sent her packing, it’s safe to say that Renee Nyobé is losing some. She’s a hot mess, and not the cute kind. No, if hot messes had categories, hers would be ‘littering the stairs of the metro station with your sweaty underwear because you were too busy rushing to the job interview you’re already late for to zip up your yoga bag.’
A job—any job—is just what she needs to get her life back on track, and it might as well be at Montreal’s most famous dive bar, Taverne Toulouse.
Dylan Trottard is winning some. As Taverne Toulouse’s new manager, he’s got one rule for himself: don’t screw up. Following that rule gets a lot harder when the woman he’s spent the past three years trying to forget starts working behind the bar.
They were never supposed to want each other, and they sure as hell aren’t supposed to want each other now. She’s the girl that got away before he even had her, and he’s the guy she didn’t think would ever give her a second glance.
Now they can’t keep their eyes off one another, and the stakes are even higher than before. There’s a lot to lose, but as the pull between them gets harder and harder to ignore, Renee and Dylan start asking how much winning is worth.
Glass Half Full is part of the Barflies series, a set of standalone romantic comedies that chronicle the lives and loves of the staff at a Montreal dive bar.
“I always wondered something,” she continues when it’s clear I can’t speak. “That night, did you…Were you…Did you want to kiss me?”
I wanted to do more than kiss her. I wanted to breathe her in. I wanted to inhale her.
“It would have been a bad idea,” I manage to get out through my clenched jaw. She’s staring up at me through those damn eyelashes, and all I can think about is her mouth, her neck, that inch of her gorgeous bare shoulders I can see before they meet with the edge of her coat.
“I’m glad you didn’t.”
Everything grinds to a halt.
Shit, shit, shit.
“I’m glad you didn’t,” she repeats, “because I wasn’t ready for you to kiss me then, not like I am now.”
Taverne Toulouse is back again and bringing people together in this next book Glass Half Full. And I got to say Katia Rose has done it again and we readers are falling in love all over again.
Dylan and Renee’s story is quite the romance. Young girl with a crush on an older man. Only to be separated and brought back together unexpectedly.
Renee is a wonderful girl with a beautiful mind. But her mind is ripped apart and she loses something that means so much to her. Her voice. But as always, Taverne Toulouse works it’s magic and she may just find her voice again.
Dylan is a wonderful guy. He is smart and easy going. He is definitely a people person and many respect him. Being the newly appointed manager at Taverne Toulouse may be more than he bargained for. There is plenty of passion in Dylan and I believe that he just needs to discover it.
Together Dylan and Renee discover there is more to life than what hands they have been dealt. They only have to reach out and grab it. It is not an easy road, but together they can shine.
If you are a fan of Katia Rose then you will continue to be with this book. She has a wonderful way of creating and developing beautiful characters that draw you into the story and hold your attention. Her characters are very relateable and once you are hooked there is no turning back. Bravo Ms. Rose! Another beautiful romance for the books.
Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart, and is a sucker for quirky characters. A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.
