The two have several cute moments together but the first thing that caught my attention was the constant mention of the age difference. Why did we need to be reminded 30 times (just a guess) that he is 30 and she is just a baby at 21? 21 is legal drinking limit. What do you mean baby? I never heard the age of 30 made out to sound so old before. At one point Beckman reflected on the difference as though he was in a nursing home with all this vast wisdom he had learned and how innocent Frankee still was. There's another he acknowledges that Frankee's dad is only 9 years older than him and he's fantasizing about Scott's baby girl. Anyone do the math? Because Frankee is only 9 years younger. I guess what GC was trying to point out was she was always kiddo to him. This teenage girl who hung around the office and then comes back a swan. The other thing was for all that wisdom Porter had the story is spun that puts him some bad lighting.
The past comes back to haunt Porter just as he and Frankee make their secret relationship public, a past lover comes back on the scene. She is a delusional nutcake who announces that she is carrying Porter's child. This is my problem when manwhores are written because it just makes their character sound so irresponsible. I assure you though in this case he knew he wore his raincoat. This woman, Charlotte, than proceeds to cause trouble for our couple because she wants Porter to herself. One thing I can promise you of is Cate's dedication of her characters. Thank you so much for that. They were true and honest through all their pain and suffering and that I had to admire. The two had to hurt the other to get to the truth and through it all remained devoted to the love they shared. The trouble was though that once the truth of Charlotte's scheme was revealed she just vanished. Everything just stopped. As crazy as things began to escalate I had a hard time believing she would just give up.

I still loved when our couple was reunited and the two could finally move forward with their lives but the problems I had did effect my overall rating, unfortunately. This isn't a clean read and has dirty talk, but I had no problem with that. I guess when rating this book I compared each book to the others in the series to come up with how I would rate it. Tap and Stout are in this one as well their ladies. I am also thrilled to see another book in the Sin Trilogy is coming soon. The first 3 books in that series I just loved and turned me into the Cates fan I am today. Enjoy!
Frankie and Porter have known each other for years since her dad works for Porter. She is interning for his brew company as a graphic artist. He is 9 years her senior but she seemed more mature than him. It was odd the direction they went as a couple. She is a virgin when they get together. I thought it was weird he didn't give her a more memorable first time. She gives him her virginity on a random weekday during their lunch hour? Then the next time they have sex she's wearing crotchless panties and cut out bra? He also calls her his "porno princess" like it's a term of endearment.
Their is also a lot of sex and the guy acts like a teenager with no self control around her. Sex is great but when it's talked about so often I feel the deeper connection gets lost.
I like the setting of a brewery and the talk about how to make different flavors was new and interesting. There was also an interesting sub plot when his past comes back to become an obstacle for them as a couple.
I liked it ok but thought their were some oddities I didn't care for.
I struggled a bit with how to rate Porter. On one hand, I loved it, but there were a couple of smaller things that knocked it down from a 4 star read for me.
The good: there is a little element of the forbidden (Frankee is Porter's intern and 9 years younger). He is super sweet to her and works to woo her, the relationship conflict is external and not just drama for the sake of drama.
The struggles: I would have liked more relationship building. Frankee and Porter excel at steaming up the sheets and there were lots of hints at other activities, but we didn't see a lot of it.
I also would have liked to seen a little more from her parents in response to their relationship- it felt as if this was built up, but had a very small result.
My last struggle had to do with the series. If you have read the other 2 books (or at least Tap) then Porter is easy to read because you have all of the back story. I would not suggest starting the series here as there are things that might be head scratchers. Timing wise, Porter and Stout's books run in parallel, so there is a bit of a spoiler if you have not read Stout.
If I was rating the whole series - then it's a definite 4 star read, especially if you read them all in order.
I'm telling you this is one of those perfect stories that puts a huge smile on your face because Frankee is just so adorable and Porter is the ultimate dream man... Everything seems perfect but it doesn't always stay that way.... Now go one-click and read Porter. 5 stars.
