Publisher's Summary

Come for an emotional ride in this stand-alone romance by New York Times best-selling author J. Sterling. With Sterling’s laugh-out-loud banter and a trio of brothers you’ll fall for, this realistic story is a must-listen.

I’ve seen Frank Fisher before, but he’s never seen me. He definitely saw me tonight. And I know I wasn’t the only one who felt the world shift the moment our eyes connected from across the bar. 

But Frank isn’t like his brothers. He’s quiet, elusive, and keeps to himself. It makes him mysterious, but that’s not why I’m drawn to him. It’s something else. Something I’ve never experienced before, as cliche as that may sound. 

I want to be around him. Get to know him better. Explore what’s growing between us, but Frank keeps holding back and I have no idea why. Good thing I’m a persistent woman who doesn’t scare off easily. 

Right? 

I guess we’ll see. 

The Fisher Brothers is a series of stand-alone novels that can be sipped one at a time, or binged in order. Each book is named after one of the drinks at their popular bar!

Omg - awful female narrator

Ugh, slow burn and the female narrator is awful. She’s supposed to have a Colombian accent but she is not. And when she “has an accent, it’s awful, more Irish/Scottish.” Horrible, like rolled my eyes and wanted to FF through female narrator.

Insta love

But at what cost? Ryan gives up the girl who’s always been there for him for the girl who catches his eye at his bar. Doesn’t sound so great and it was a little hard to stomach but it works out in the end. Girls, if you’ve stayed around for 10 years wanting marriage and he doesn’t, move on and don’t be a Shelby. Hated that part of the story At times I didn’t feel like Ryan deserved his Claudia. He didn’t have to be so weak, but maybe he found the girl just right for him in Claudia. Supporting cast helps save the story.

Meh

I find it really hard to enjoy a love story that starts with cheating and betrayal. I felt no romance in this book, just extreme disgust in the lack of backbone in both parties. The main character was cheating from the jump no matter how his monolog twisted things to make him feel better about himself and his actions. He never felt the need to be respectful and to own up to his actions, so Iost all respect for him. As for his female counterpart she was just as bad, not once did her monolog take into consideration the third party or how the actions of Frank could have hurt anyone but herself. She makes a big tado about not respecting cheaters and how the actions of cheaters took her father away but she is quick to jump right back to Frank. She makes the statement that she is too attracted to him, I'm at a loss to know what kind of person has no more will power than that to fall head over heels after a slice of pizza, a few drinks and a kiss on the cheek. It doesn't say much about her character or her self worth that so little was needed to make her change her very opinion on an ideal that supposedly change her entire life. So without respect for even one of the characters in this book it was tremendously hard to listen to them blather on about love and respect when they clearly had no respect for the concept of love and started their relationship by shitting on the very ideal of love and relationships.

As for the narration it was ok.

Sexist

This book was full of so many sexist remarks that I can’t believe it’s written by a female author. Pass.

Don’t bother

Hands down one of the worst books I’ve ever suffered through. Don’t bother. So cheesy, sexist and awful.

Guy hater

I’m going to be honest, this story was hard for me on a very personal level. I get why Frank did what he did but I don’t agree with it at all. I know, I know this is fiction but I get so invested and lost in these characters. That being said the angst, witty banter and the family dynamic was fantastic. I did enjoy this book when I got past the “cheating” aspect.

the dude is a cheater?!

Im only on chapter 7 but I don't see how anyone can love this story. the guy is a cheater. dating one woman for 10 years and talking to another. it doesn't matter how "bad" his long term relationship is. he made a commitment to her. be honorable and stay faithful or LEAVE before you think about talking to someone else....

Boring

Frank is in a long term relationship with Shelby when he meets Claudia and is drawn to her. Much of this book is about how he feels guilty for being attracted to Claudia and for not knowing how to end his relationship with Shelby without hurting her. It’s tedious. The author has written much better books.

True love ❤️

I really enjoyed this book, all three books are great. The Fisher brothers are hot and sexy with panty-dropping smiles. Frank deserves to be happy, no one should stay in a relationship out of obligation. I'm a sucker for a happy ending.

The second book of Fisher Brothers

Love this book, just like the first one. Will start the 3rd one straight away. They are all lovely romantic stories with a bit of struggle to get them. For those who don’t want racey books, these are for you. Lots of desires and a bit of bedroom play but nothing that would turn anyone off. Enjoy!

Thank you.

I wanted to love it. storyline was great

I really wanted to love this story. I found the guy character great. and the female lead started off alright. at first I thought it was just her bff that was annoying but then there was a freaking 20 minute chapter that was solely about her deliberating what it meant that he only kissed her on the cheek for their first not even first date. not just her voice's annoying but their conversation was immature and shallow for supposed 26year olds
I won't be finishing it.

Very disappointing!

I struggled so hard to get through this book. After listening to the Nick and Jess story I was excited to continue the series but this book was just so blah.
The female character was somehow both devoid of personality and annoyingly uptight at the same time. I can't help but think the terrible narration (particularly the female) made me dislike her more.
The female narrator was terrible and should honestly consider a different career path. There was no flow to the way she read, pausing mid sentence constantly despite no punctuation and the voice she did of the flatmate made me want to rip my ears off.
The whole story could have been summarised into novella length rather than the constant repetition of thoughts and conversations causing it to go on for over 7 hours.
I'm keen to continue on to Ryan's story however because I want to see how the author writes a playboy manwhore who is also uber romantic and 'thinks like a chick.'
Hopefully I'm not disappointed again!
