I like to think of myself as a man of pleasure…

I enjoy a good pint of ale, being in the arms of a beautiful woman, and living by my own rules. The only thing I try to avoid? Commitment. And I’ve got a three-year success rate to prove it.

I wasn’t planning on Grace—the beautiful, funny, totally off-limits massage therapist who keeps popping up in my life. She’s on a six-month mission to rid her life of toxins. No alcohol. No red meat. And, yeah, no men. I’m talking full-on man cleanse.

I know I should walk away, but I can’t…and the only way to keep her in my life is to live by her rules. I’ll need to prove to a woman who’s lost all trust in men that I’m worthy of her love. And do it all without so much as a single kiss.

The only problem? If I win, I’ll lose the one thing I swore I’d never give up. My heart.

Each book in the Kingston Ale House series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.

NA ReviewMy Thoughts

Worth the Wait is the fourth book in the Kingston Ale House series by A.J. Pine. I have not read the first book in the series, but I did really enjoy book two- Six Month Rule, and book three,Three Simple Words . You can easily start off at any book you would like. They are very easy to follow and each book follows a different couple. I have read several books by this author, so I feel like I pretty much know what to expect going in. I know it is going to be a good romance, I know there are going to be flawed, complex characters that make for an interesting read, and I know that there is probably going to be drama thrown in. And I was right on all of the above for Worth the Wait, and for the whole series.

Worth the Wait is Jeremy and Grace’s story.I really enjoyed Grace and Jeremy’s backstories, and I think because of these two characters, Worth the Wait is my favorite book in the Kingston Ale House series to date! Jeremy and Grace each have their own reasons to be distrustful, both in general and of the opposite sex. It would be really hard to get over what Grace went through. That would be a hard betrayal for me to stomach. As soon as Jeremy and Grace run into each other, I could tell their chemistry and attraction was off the charts. And then they kept running into each other over and over again. I loved it. Grace is on what she calls a “man cleanse” which I found to be an awesome way to put it. I love A.J. Pine’s sense of humor. She always does an awesome job balancing drama and humor in her stories. She is excellent at providing levity in the really heavy moments, and her writing is always excellent. I loved their story. It was cute, sexy and funny. And I really loved the theme of trust woven throughout the book.

Bottom line: If you like new adult contemporary romances that are very well done, Worth, and the whole Kingston Ale House series, is a great one for you to check out. It is a very character driven read with a lot of sass and a lot of heart. I think Worth the Wait might be my favorite AJ Pine book to date! (and I have read about 6 by her)

Side Note: They changed the covers for the series, and I have to say I liked the old covers better, but a lot of that has to do with my own personal opinions about contemporary romance book covers with guys in underwear on the cover. (I know, I know that is probably an unpopular opinion.)

About A.J. Pine

AJ Pine writes stories to break readers’ hearts, but don’t worry—she’ll mend them with a happily ever after. As an English teacher and a librarian, AJ has always surrounded herself with books. All her favorites have one big commonality–romance. Naturally, her books have the same. When she’s not writing, she’s of course reading. Then there’s online shopping (everything from groceries to shoes) and, of course, a tiny bit of TV where she nourishes her undying love of vampires and superheroes. And in the midst of all of this, you’ll also find her hanging with her family in the Chicago burbs.

AJ Pine is the author of IF ONLY and WHAT IF with Entangled Embrace and the upcoming ONE NIGHT and ONE LIFE with Penguin/Intermix in 2015.
