Poppy Kaminski is running away. When your fiancé dumps you for your twenty-one-year-old intern (five months pregnant) and she then tries to claim all your designs for herself, sometimes you can’t quite help a public meltdown. When it goes viral on Twitter and Instagram, though, it’s time to get the hell out of Dodge - or in this case, New York. Her best friend’s wedding in New Orleans provides the perfect excuse to flee the scene of the crime.

Poppy certainly isn’t looking for any entanglements,

Ok, well - wow! I didn't expected....that! This is my first time reading from the author and I'm literally finding myself blown away.
The story was very well written, the characters were full of depth - The heroine was Fierce and independent, our hero strong and full on alpha. And even after having an obvious plot, it kept on taking me by suprise again and again. I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
Well you get my drift😂. It's a wonderful no

Poppy and Brandon somehow hit all the right notes for me. Both were in the middle of professional crises and had to figure out a way to rely on each other and themselves in the middle of a natural disaster and in love.

I had received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I apologize for the delay in writing this review as family obligations have pulled me away.

This review will be short but I will say that I think I may have found a new series to read. It follows the expected roadmap from this genre, with two broken people whose paths cross and help each other heal, not without drama and ang
Good book about two people who experience significant crises in their lives, and with each other's help, find their way to new beginnings. The story opens as Poppy, a New York City stylist to the rich and famous, arrives in New Orleans for her best friend's wedding. The timing is perfect, as Poppy desperately needs to get away. After finding her fiancé in bed with her intern, Poppy had a very public meltdown, which ended up splashed all over social media. Her image is destroyed, and she needs to ...more

In the first Bayou Bachelors story, two people have to overcome the life-changing challenges that have arisen in their lives. Though no fault of their own, these two individuals must struggle with making numerous tough decisions, and what they end up choosing could greatly alter their futures. As the story progressed, I came to know Poppy and Brandon as very different people than what my initial impression told me.

**I received an ARC of this book courtesy of Net Galley and the publisher. All opinions expressed in this review are my own and given freely**

Geri Krotow is a new-to-me author, but I see she has quite the library. Not tons of books, but a significant amount. I’m surprised this is my first time delving into her work.

As much as I enjoyed the storyline and characters, I have mixed feelings on this one. It felt a bit choppy. Now, that could partially be blamed on the fact that I read an ARC. Yet I d

Fully Dressed is the first of three books that follow the same characters but focus on a different couple in each one. This first book is about Poppy and Brandon. Poppy has recently lost everything, her fiance, her cool (flipping out about the break up very publically and then having everything splashed all over social and not so social media) and her business. Brandon (who for reasons that are never explained, is also known as Gus) has had a similar loss. His best friend and business partner Je ...more

I received Fully Dressed as part of a Goodreads giveaway.

Desperate to escape the attention of a gawking press after a post-breakup meltdown, stylist Poppy Kaminsky is looking forward to her best friend's wedding in New Orleans. Upon arrival, however, she immediately butts heads with the groom's brother, Brandon "Gus" Boudreaux, a successful boat builder with rugged good looks and an inherent need to needle Poppy. Alternately attracted and repelled by the prickly, sarcastic black sheep Brandon, P

3.5 Stars!

The story of two wounded souls and how they healed each other. Poppy is our main female character and she's been through some stuff recently that not only shook up her world, but brought it crashing down. Now she's in New Orleans to wait out the storm still unleashing hell in New York. Here she meets her best friend's fiancé's sexy as all get out brother. Brandon "Gus" is a marshmallow, but no one else can see it except for Poppy. Unfortun

When Poppy has a bad breakup, she grabs her best friend Sonja’s New Orleans wedding as a chance to get away from the drama in New York City. Even though she is a stylist, she is planning to enjoy the wedding festivities. Then she meets the groom’s brother, Brandon, when he arrives at the engagement party in a loud boat. She thinks is an obnoxious jerk, but when he saves her from a disastrous night out she is forced to reevaluate her initial opinion. In addition, she cannot deny the sizzling chem ...more

I received this book through Goodreads giveaways. This was an enjoyable story with an enchanting setting. It is hard not to like a book set in such a charming city as NOLA. The two main characters filled out as the story moved along. To begin with it seemed they were both pretty shallow, but as the story progresses you begin to see true depth to their personalities. I would have liked to have seen some resolution with Brandon's brother, but that hopefully will come with a second book to this ser ...more

* I received this book for free from a Goodreads giveaway. *

It took me a little while to get into this book. It had enough of my interest to continue until around the middle when the pace really picked up and things got very intense. My attention was grabbed then and I had to finish. The main story was finished nicely, but there were things that are unfinished that I'm guessing will be addressed in a later book. Overall it was a sweet story worth reading.

Love in the bayou

Gotta love love, and Geri Krotow knocks it out of the park with Brandon and Poppy. I guess this one would be an enemies to lovers story, which happen to always be fun to read.

Short review. Likable characters and enjoyable story but wish the characters were flushed out a little bit more. Looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
