Publisher's Summary

A Fabric Hearts story

Tate Buchanan is a troublemaker who can't keep a job, no matter how many times his lucky argyle sweater gets him hired. Add to that a learning disability and an impetuous nature that sends him into altercations to protect the defenseless, and he hardly manages to make friends, let alone find a man who's interested in him for more than one night.

Most people think EMT Jaime Escobar is a player, but the truth is he wants a serious partner - he just can't justify wasting time on guys he knows aren't a match. But when he treats a gorgeous redhead after a fight, he finds the spark he's spent so many years looking for.

Jaime wants to take the next step with Tate, but it's clear Tate's not going to curb his impulsive behavior - his next fight sends him to the hospital. Jaime's relationship with a near criminal isn't something his family is ready to accept, not any more than Tate is willing to be kept a secret. Jaime will need a lot of understanding - and some luck of his own - to keep them both. But this is one fight he's going to see through to the end.

3.5 stars

The audiobook of Just Add Argyle was an enjoyable story with a good narrator. This is the third book in the Fabric Hearts series, but each features a single couple making the books easy to read as standalones or out of order. Just Add Argyle is more in line with a hurt/comfort story with paramedic Jaime- a secondary character in the previous books- finding his match in Tate, a cast aside young adult. There was a good assortment of tropes beyond the hurt/comfort aspect, including an age gap and opposites attracting. I was pleased how well each trope worked well within the plot, keeping things interesting and adding distinct conflicts, but never getting overwrought with angst.

In the second book, I struggled with liking one of the heroes. That wasn’t the case in Just Add Argyle as both Jaime and Tate were impossible not to like. Tate had such a difficult life up to meeting Jaime and I couldn’t help but want the best for him. I liked seeing the protective caring side surge in Jaime as he learned of Tate’s hardships and I liked that he wanted to get to know him and not just make assumptions based on other’s opinions. The author did a good job making sure the rapid progression of feelings and Jaime’s unwavering pursuit of Tate made sense given the plot details, while showing a side to Jaime’s character readers previously caught glimpses of in the first two books of the series. Although I definitely liked how much Tate’s character blossomed with Jaime’s help and how Tate’s love in turn helped Jaime overcome some of his own personal hang-ups, I wished there was a bit more depth to both characters. With both men having such intense histories and experiences, I felt some of the character development and emotions were more toned down than I expected. That said, I enjoyed the story and thought the plot and conflicts were well thought out and resolved. The writing was solid and the narration by Mr. Ross was steady and pleasant. If you’re looking for a hurt/comfort story with some angst but not overblown heartache, Just Add Argyle would be a great choice.

Really Seeing

Another great addition to the family. Tate feels like the only good thing is his argyle but even that doesn't seem to make a real difference. But Jaime really sees Tate. He can see that Tate works hard, cares about others, and just needs a chance. It is hard to move forward but together they are both better people.
