Summary

Come for an emotional ride in this stand-alone romance by New York Times best-selling author J. Sterling. With Sterling’s laugh-out-loud banter and a trio of brothers you’ll fall for, this realistic story is a must-listen.

I’ve seen Frank Fisher before, but he’s never seen me. He definitely saw me tonight. And I know I wasn’t the only one who felt the world shift the moment our eyes connected from across the bar. 

But Frank isn’t like his brothers. He’s quiet, elusive, and keeps to himself. It makes him mysterious, but that’s not why I’m drawn to him. It’s something else. Something I’ve never experienced before, as cliche as that may sound. 

I want to be around him. Get to know him better. Explore what’s growing between us, but Frank keeps holding back and I have no idea why. Good thing I’m a persistent woman who doesn’t scare off easily. 

Right? 

I guess we’ll see. 

The Fisher Brothers is a series of stand-alone novels that can be sipped one at a time, or binged in order. Each book is named after one of the drinks at their popular bar!

True love ❤️

I really enjoyed this book, all three books are great. The Fisher brothers are hot and sexy with panty-dropping smiles. Frank deserves to be happy, no one should stay in a relationship out of obligation. I'm a sucker for a happy ending.

Insta love

But at what cost? Ryan gives up the girl who’s always been there for him for the girl who catches his eye at his bar. Doesn’t sound so great and it was a little hard to stomach but it works out in the end. Girls, if you’ve stayed around for 10 years wanting marriage and he doesn’t, move on and don’t be a Shelby. Hated that part of the story At times I didn’t feel like Ryan deserved his Claudia. He didn’t have to be so weak, but maybe he found the girl just right for him in Claudia. Supporting cast helps save the story.

Omg - awful female narrator

Ugh, slow burn and the female narrator is awful. She’s supposed to have a Colombian accent but she is not. And when she “has an accent, it’s awful, more Irish/Scottish.” Horrible, like rolled my eyes and wanted to FF through female narrator.

Book Lover

I’ve never laughed out loud so much during a book, or felt so much sorrow for a character in how things played out. Absolutely love this book

I couldn’t get passed the 5 chapter how slow the story moved along. The narrators didn’t make it easier.

DNF

OMG so boring! So much repetitive dialog too many of the same scenes over and over again. I couldn’t do it. Glad it was an Audible Plus rental.

Sweet

Too much inner dialogue and not enough actions (or sex). I understand the need for connection, but many other authors demonstrate that more effectively.

Did the author lose a bet?

The guy has a steady live-in girlfriend who stuck with him when he lost his shot at playing Major League Baseball, Her dying dad asked him to look after her so he promised he would and now he is cheating on her? I tried to make it to the end just to see how she was going to redeem him, but she just made him worse and worse. I had to give up.

Not a Love Story **Some Spoilers**

I haven’t finished this book but had to say I’m not a fan of this story. Claudia drove me crazy only worried about herself and never even cared that Frank had a girlfriend. They had literally hung out twice and she acted like they were so deeply in love! Felt so bad for the poor girlfriend that was being cheated on.

Realistic dilemma of right vs. wrong for love.

The story is true to life and written so well it is riveting. It follows up book one perfectly (which is a pretty hard act to follow). As a read, I highly recommend it BUT hold on to your morality because it will be challenged. I imagine several fights about right and wrong will break out discussing this one in book clubs all over.
Spoiler below...





The things that erk me about the ending are all the things that guys do everyday and in the end makes it impossible for me to like the MMC. The thing is Frank WAS a lying rat bastard. Frank IS a cheater. Frank DID breakup with Shelby for Claudia. Justifying all the wrong things done because he finally found " true love" is utter bullpoop. Although Claudia is not a homewrecker, per se, she had no problem quicjly stepping over the still warm dead carcass of his previous relationship. She has no problem just moving right into the space that was occupied by a woman he had LIVED with for 10 years within just days after the breakup and taking her place in the exact same space the previous couple shared several years of celebrated birthdays, anniversaries and love making... Ewww! In my opinion, their actions are distasteful and classless. (putting a new mattress in the old space doesn't change that.)

Frank will always find it easy to lie to Claudia. Frank lying about something so serious from the moment they met and Claudia just immediately accepting his excuses sets the pattern for his lying to her in the future. He was able to easily manipulate her because they are wrapped up in pretty swoony words. Yes he called her immediately after he got caught but he was asking for forgiveness as he was STILL laying in bed next to his gf for weeks. He LIED to Shelby for weeks about who Claudia was after he was caught leaving her believing she was a Ryan groupie. He lied to Shelby for weeks after she point blank asked him if he wanted to stay in the relationship. Frank continued to cheat by continuing to call and text Claudia while STILL keeping Shelby in the dark. Frank can never be trusted, he is what he fears, not a good guy.
But again, that's what makes this story so intriguing and realistic.

The narration was fantastic!! Especially when Claudia slipped into her native accent when agitated. Brilliant!
