Gwen Stevens had a privileged life until her father spoke three little words that turned her world upside down. “You’re cut off.”
Broke and desperate, Gwen is forced to accept a waitressing job, but this glimmer of hope has a price. As if being a cocktail waitress isn’t bad enough, she has to do it in a dive bar called The Den, and her bad luck doesn’t stop there. She also needs to deal with the new owner, a blue-eyed, self-righteous ass determined to make her life miserable.
Liam Sinclair walked away from the entitlement and obligation his family planned for him, vowing to make his own way in the world…
Adjusting to life as a new business owner, Liam has experienced more than his fair share of setbacks. When his only waitress breaks her leg, his sister takes it upon herself to hire a replacement—a spoiled, self-indulgent hothead with too much makeup and more than enough attitude. Gwen represents the world he’s trying to escape, a world of excess and greed that he was never cut out for.
Appearances can be deceiving, and first impressions aren’t always right…
Despite their apparent differences, the tension between them turns to a fiery passion that neither of them can resist. Together they find balance and learn to appreciate the simpler things in life. But Gwen soon discovers that old habits die hard, and one mistake is all it takes to ruin everything.
Forgiveness must be earned, but even a villain deserves a chance at redemption…
A spoiled princess pays her dues in a bar and it turns out to be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Being the third book in a series, this is a companion novel to the first two books. The story is told in alternating first person perspectives of Liam and Gwen and utilises the Hate to Love trope well.
It was hard to like Gwen at the beginning given her snotty and pretentious attitude. Getting a job waitressing at a bar actually helped her drop the attitude and develop some humility. It was great to see this character who was introduced in Book 1 as a diva be redeemed in this book.
The family dynamics of both characters was an element I particularly enjoyed. It was a look at how different families can be and what a family will do to ensure their children are able to stand on their own two feet. The characters from the first two books had side roles in this book and their input into the story was brilliant.
A great instalment in the Madison Square series full of fantastic character with major character development. This is probably my favourite book in the series so far.
