Blog Tour: Worth the Wait by AJ Pine


by AJ Pine Kingston Ale House #4 Publication Date: January 16, 2017 Genres: Adult, Entangled: Select, Contemporary Romance


Synopsis: 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.



I love AJ Pine's books.  I love how she gives us these groups of people, a family of sorts, and brings us into their lives, exploring and learning more about them as a series progresses.   The Kingston Ale House series does just that, sucks you in and keeps you entertained while falling in love with the characters.  

Jeremy was hurt by a past relationship and no longer wants to deal with commitments and anything more than simple fun.  Grace also suffered from a previous relationship, but it left her more than broken-hearted and she's struggling still to put the pieces of her life back together.  

Both Jeremy and Grace are fun and likable characters.  I really liked how Jeremy fit in the the Kingston gang and how they brought Grace into their fold.  I always find it amusing when a man is all about no - commitments until the find that ONE and then it's how do I make her see what we could be.  I loved that added layers to the story of Grace and her freeze on all things toxic, most especially men.  It really made for a lot of fun, but also enabled Jeremy to show how serious he was about making something work between them. 

Worth the Wait was a great blend of funny and sweet, keeping you on the line while waiting to see how things come out for Jeremy and Grace.  The sparks between these two could be felt, but there was also something else there, a deeper connection.  I really enjoyed watching as these two figured things out, as they found themselves seemingly pushed together by fate in interactions taht allowed them to get to know one another.  

Pine has woven together a fabulous story between the pages of this book, one that will make you laugh, make you swoon, and make you want to root on Grace and Jeremy all while falling in love with not only them, but loving the whole gang as well. 




Synopsis: She’s holding out for a happy ever after.
Annie I know where to find my happily ever after—between the pages of a romance novel. It’s why I sell books, why I blog about them, and why I’ll never get disappointed by love.So what if my brother’s best friend from high school is now a bestselling author? Or that he just blew back into town on a Harley, filling out a pair of jeans like he never did before? Or that he’s agreed to do a signing at my bookstore on such short notice? Because despite all his adoring female fans, I kind of hated his book.
Wes The last time I saw Annie Denning, she was a senior in high school, three years older than me and way out of my league. Now I’m her last-minute date to a wedding, and what started as a night of pure fun has turned into something more real than either of us anticipated.Annie is my muse. When I’m with her, my writer’s block fades away, and the words finally flow.The only problem? She wants the fairy tale—her very own happily ever after—and anyone who’s read my book knows the truth. I just don’t believe they exist.
Six Month Rule New Cover


Synopsis: She created the game, but the rules are about to change.
The second I met Will Evans in his three-piece suit with that hot as hell British accent, I wanted him. That is...until he insulted my shoes and stole my corner office. Now I have to work side-by-side with the surly British arsehole who just set my career back six months. It's fine. That accent won't get to me, no matter how sexy it sounds when he asks permission to do things professionals shouldn't do. On the couch. In the corner office I still wish was mine. Maybe we can't keep our hands off each other, but I'm sure as hell not falling for a guy who lives an ocean away. Because in six months, he's leaving for good. I don't do broken hearts, but you know what they say... There's a first time for everything. Each book in the Kingston Ale House series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.


Synopsis: How far will one man go for the woman he's loved since high school?
Jamie Kingston has been Brynn Chandler's best friend since middle school. Only once was their friendship tested—when Brynn gave Jamie a single kiss. Since then, they've had an unspoken agreement never to cross that line again, and she’s ready to let go of the past and move on. But Jamie has loved Brynn for as long as he can remember, and now that he's ready to tell her, she has her sights set on someone else. Knowing this is his last chance, he asks Brynn to go on a two-week road trip. But their time alone brings old hurts to the surface, and Brynn has to decide if the one that got away lies at the end of the journey or if he's been by her side all along.


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.
