“This is a fabulous read that’ll take you back in time, make you swoon, and serve you with a heavy dose of nostalgia.” —The Rogue Reviews
Recipe for a Boston Classic Cocktail: one part finance geek, one part starving actor, two shots of stubborn and a healthy squeeze of passion. Shake well and serve in a vintage glass.
When Kate Bishop walks into Boston’s famous Bull and Finch pub, all she’s looking for is one guy from her investment firm that she can trust to have her back—a tall order. With a salesman at her side, maybe stage fright won’t paralyze her completely when she presents her meticulously prepared research to clients. And maybe she can save her job.
Romance is the last thing on her to-do list, but a meet-cute with a Shakespeare-quoting bartender has her speculating on the value of diversifying her life portfolio.
Will Talbot is not a fan of the slick financiers who cram into his bar after each day’s closing bell. With their calls for Harvey Wallbangers and their Hermès ties, they’re all the same.
Except for a certain beautiful, buttoned-up brunette with fire in her eyes and a storm in her heart. They’re totally wrong for each other. He should be focusing on his upcoming audition, not coaching Kate on how to act like she's a bona fide member of the Gordon Gekko club.
Problem is, they can’t seem to stay away from each other.
The course of true love never did run smooth, but in this 1980's sweet-and-sexy rom-com, returns on love can’t be measured on the S&P 500.
Wonderful Story & Narration🎧 A Heart-Warming Delight!
What I'm Looking
Boston Classics, Book 1
By: Karen Grey
Narrated by: Joe Arden, Karen White
I enjoyed this book immensely, Karen Grey is a gifted author, she created a uniquely told story with interesting storylines that grabbed my attention right from the start and held it captive straight to the end. The characters are well developed, they are realistic and easy to relate to in a nostalgic way, remembering what it was like for woman in the workforce back in the day when it was mostly a man world for executive positions. Kate Bishop is good at what she does, working with numbers in the investment firm and providing a thorough market analysis. She never felt like she was part of the team, but with hopes of advancing she decides to go out for a drink with her co-workers. Will Talbot, actor, fight director and bartender likes what he sees in Kate, he makes her the perfect drink and even woos her with his quotes from Shakespeare’s plays. He invites her to an outing which she winds up going to and enjoying. I loved the chemistry between these two, they are both hesitant about getting involved but you can not deny that type of chemistry for long. They are worlds apart when it comes to careers and goals in life, can they they survive the differences or will it tear them apart. I loved how everything plays out in this book, the story is plotted out nicely and there is never a dull moment with plenty of drama, humor, low angst, lots of emotional and heartfelt moments and a wonderful romance.
I listened to the audiobook edition, Joe Arden and Karen White are talented narrators and voice artists. They were perfectly casted to bring these characters and their story to life. They do an amazing job portraying them, humanizing them, giving each their own voice and personality. You could hear how much heart they put into their work as they capture the characters emotions and project them in to their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for this awesome listen🎧
