Book Review: The Graveside Bar and Grill
The Graveside Bar and Grill: A Charley Davidson Novella from New York Times bestselling author Darynda Jones is coming August 23rd!
When Donovan St. James’ precocious charge asks him—no questions asked—to tail the doctor who keeps their ragtag team patched up, he wants to refuse. Not because the saucy teen is getting too big for her britches, ordering him around like a mob boss, but because the woman stirs feelings in him he would rather not explore. However, when evil threatens the doc’s life, he realizes he has no choice. Sia saved his life once. He will try to return the favor. He just prays he can do it without losing his heart.
Running from the supernatural entity that has destroyed entire worlds to have her, Sia thought she’d found a haven on Earth with a motley team of warriors protecting the girl destined to save humanity. But when Sia’s found, she realizes something on this plane is more scrumptious than her: that very teen. So, she runs—and Donovan St. James follows. Nothing is more alluring than a scruffy biker with a lacerating gaze. And she vows to tell him that…if they survive.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
I absolutely love Charley Davidson. This is one of my favorite series. It was a sad time when the series came to an end. So, to get to revisit even if for a brief period with Charley and gang, it is a welcome treat.
Whereas Donovan and Sia are concerned, I did like them both. I did feel the chemistry they had for one another but to be honest, it was not until the last few pages of the book and that one brief intimate scene that I got to feel this attraction.
While I liked this novella as it did bring me back to this wonderful world that I love, I did find my feelings towards the overall story as just alright.
