R E V I E W ➠ Same Ol’ Situation by Lacey Balck

(Burgers and Brew Crue #3)


 I’m about as straight-laced and by the book as they come. They call me Numbers, the man in the office of Burgers and Brew, the restaurant and bar I co-own with my friends. Routine and spreadsheets, that’s how I spend my day. I’m a creature of habit, from the designer clothes to the same girlfriend, I crave the pattern I’ve become dependent on.
 Until said girlfriend breaks up with me for the umpteenth time, and I find refuge in a woman who is my exact opposite.
 I’m intrigued and completely out of my element, yet that doesn’t stop me from spending time with her. Even if I consider her off-limits, something about her calls to me.
 The problem is I just might lose a friend because of it.
 Most of the time, I would never look twice at Isaac Thompson. He’s all suits, ties, and expensive dress shoes, and I’m…well, not. My time is spent at the tattoo studio I work at, day and night, designing badass ink for clients who want the best. I have no room in my life for a relationship, nor do I care for the messes they always create.
 Until Isaac finds me stranded on the road, and I end up inviting him inside.
 Now, I can’t stop thinking about him. He’s so different from any man I’ve ever known, which is why we decide to keep it casual and fun.
 Let’s just hope I can keep feelings out of the arrangement, so I don’t get burned.

RELEASE DATE: December 7, 2021

Not my first read by the author, she is part of my one-click author and I sadly have to say that this is maybe the 2nd ever book I’ve read by her that I did not connect with and extremely like. I think it had a lot to do with the fact that the hero just had come off a on-off relationship and the heroine’s boss was her ex and they were still so very close. So I was not able to connect to the connection between them. It was hot for sure and some parts I loved and swooned but it just did not cut it for me. And that’s okay we all have our own likes, so this is my personal preference, I would still recommend it for sure, I love this series!

These two couldn’t be more opposite. We have the hero who is straight laced and proper, the heroine who is wild and free, that’s the best way I can describe her. She is full of life and tattoos. She works at the tattoo parlor and the hero is part owner of her brother’s bar/brewery they all own. Their chemistry was very much there but their actions made me lose their connection while reading. That said, these two have a fling and keep it that way until one or the other gets too serious. The ex-gf of hero plays a part in this, as well as the heroine’s boss who’s her ex-bf. Very fun, wild and exciting, lot’s pf steamy scenes and sweet moments.
