Bartender by Annie Dyer


My plans were simple: an island escape to relax before starting my new life in New York.
I didn’t plan on falling in love with a man who said he was just a bartender.
I didn’t plan on my White Isle vacation turning so dark.

And the bartender – it’s not just my heart he holds in his hands.

It’s my life.

My Review

I could almost imagine myself on the white sandy beach. Being whisked away sounds like a great idea at the moment, and this is what the author did. Beautifully written and so very descriptive.

Jamie comes to have one last big party before starting her next phase of life. Catching up with her family is what she needs, so drinks, sunshine and maybe a summer fling is what she needs. But after a nasty break up maybe no summer fling! She’s also not living up to family expectations (her sister is a model, father is a rockstar and mother who lives the social life) but becoming an architect is what she wants.

Tommy owns a bar, he’s a workaholic, after losing his fiancé he only does one nights and no commitments. His family might live on the island for a few generations but he’s got no intentions of staying here forever.
When Tommy and Jamie meet it’s sparks and chemistry all the way. Both agree to just keeping it casual, but casual is not what happens…..

So what starts out as just a holiday romance quick turns into something more! But when pasts start cropping up, you have to wonder if this new romance will last the course. And Jamie has a life away from this beautiful island, how will a long distance romance last? Or is this just a summer fling?

This is my first book by this author, and I was totally into the book and characters, so I’ll definitely be looking up more of her work. A summer read with all the right ingredients mixed in. Suspense/romance and a little danger.


About the author:

Annie lives in the north of England, not too far from the amazing city of Manchester. She is owned by several cats and many hens, narrowly avoiding being a mad cat woman by enslaving a very understanding husband. She’s an avid reader of many genres and if she’s not writing a book, she’s usually reading one!

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src=""
