Delivered Fast (Portland Heat #3)
by Annabeth Albert
Portland, Oregon, aka Hotlandia, where the coffee shops, restaurants, and bakeries are ready to serve everything piping hot, fresh, and ready to go—like the hard-working, hard-bodied men behind the counters—with no reservations…
Sure, Chris O’Neal has problems. His restaurant is still co-owned by his ex. His flannel-and-tattoos style is making him accidentally trendy. He can’t remember the last time he went out and had fun. But he’s not lonely, he’s driven. And the hot bakery delivery boy is not his problem, no matter how sweet his buns.
Chris is old enough to know Lance Degrassi’s sculpted good looks and clever double entendres spell nothing but trouble. Lance is still in college—he should be hitting the clubs and the books, chasing guys his own age, not pursuing some gruff motorcycle-riding workaholic. Especially when he’ll be leaving for grad school in a few months. But Lance keeps hanging around, lending a hand, charming Chris to distraction. Maybe some steaming hot no-strings indulgence won’t hurt.
Then again, maybe it will…
I really enjoyed his story! I think this book is by far the best one for me in this series.
I LOVED Lance! He just seemed to bring the best out of everyone. He always seemed to brighten up a room when ever he walked in. And I loved how he was with Chris in the beginning.
He didn’t care that Chris seemed to act like a grumpy old man!…lol
I think that’s what drew Lance to him.
Chris was pretty Jaded. His life didn’t quite turn out the way it was supposed to. He followed his heart instead of his head when he was younger and it turned out to be a mistake. So he really kept to himself for a couple of years.
Until a young guy came into his life…. bringing a ray of sunshine! And pretty much just rocking his world around.
I loved when Chris and Lance were together. Their conversations were funny. Jokes about age and other stuff. The sex was pretty hot!. I loved it!
Here was one thing I didn’t care for in this book.
And, it was Chris calling himself a hippie all the time.
I hated how Chris kept calling himself a hippie. It didn’t fit with the story…and time line.
Every time he would say it… It would make me think of some really old guy in his late 60’s or 70’s. Not someone in his late 30’s!
But… Other than that… I loved this book!
