The only downside is that it's short.
I really liked all of the secondary characters in this short story. Nick’s co-workers, boss, and regulars provide depth and humor.
Davis “Fatboy” Newman was also a really interesting character. I didn’t get to know him as much as I would have liked in this story but I’m hoping I’ll get more about/from him in the next book.
The beginning confused me a bit, I do have to say. The timeline, the characters–I wasn’t sure what was going on for the first ten to fifteen percent.
After that, I kept thinking: why is this Cameron guy playing such a large part? It was a bit weird, because with shorter stories like this you expect the majority of the focus to be on the main couple.
I was also disappointed that Nick and Davis’ day together–where they really connected and got to know each other–was glossed over so much. Instead, I got to read about Nick getting off with some other dude. Not cool.
While not everything I was looking for, Nick and Davis are sweet and adorable together. I liked the characters enough that I will definitely be reading the next book, 6 Days to Get Lucky.
Copy provided in exchange for a fair and honest review.
The entirety of the story takes place over the course of one week and so the pace is heavily edited. The chemistry, to me, was only barely there. This story is told from Nick’s point of view, and quite frankly, Nick is a schmuck. He is rude, belligerent, and downright nasty to Fat Boy, a man who is nothing but kind to him, even going so far as to make the bouncer violently ill. The brushing off of this event made the story less realistic to me. I understand turning the other cheek, but this was malicious intent and there was no upset at all? The ending was typical for a Valentine’s Day short, and the character development was abbreviated due to the length of the novelette. I did enjoy the writer’s style, and am therefore giving this three stars.

Nicholas Valentine hates Valentine’s Day. Tending bar as a mixologist, Nick wishes this holiday of lovey dovey couples is banished from the calendar. Why younask?
Nick is good looking, and unattached and not loving that part, the last part. Yes he has hook ups, Juan the bus boy has been meeting him in the back room. But he doesn’t have that ‘certain someone’.
Nick has named the new bouncer Fat-Boy. Davis Newman is anything but fat and not the straight guy Nick thinks. Watch what happens when Fat-Boy tries to tame the man slut Nick Valentine.
I totally didn’t like Nick very much at first. Being intentionally mean doesn’t win me over. The 6 Day count down to Valentine’s day finally won me over with Ms Franks smooth writing and the assorted family at the restaurant/bar are a great ensemble.
This is a short story, and the author had a lot to tell. This will be a series, and Book 2 is on the horizon. Will be interesting to read.

Nick is a bartender who seems cocky, arrogant, and self-absorbed. "Fatboy" (whose real name is Davis) is a bouncer who tries to be friends with Nick and eventually has the hots for him, but Nick doesn't give him the time of day. The story starts out with learning about Nick, and frankly I wasn't in love with him. His cocky attitude turned me off a little. I much preferred reading about Davis. When they finally got together, though, it was nice to see Nick become a bit more human. I'm interested in seeing more of them together in the next book with the hope that Nick gets his head on straight.
Typically I like longer books, but I think this book was the perfect length. The intent was to spread it
over 6 days, and this was a good length without getting to be too much.
