4.5 stars.

Tale of woe aside, my dry spell isn’t voluntary. I didn’t make a vow of celibacy as an act of self-flagellation in remembrance of that dill-hole Rod. It just happened. Or didn’t happen. And then it didn’t happen some more. In fact, it’s been not happening for so long I’m worried it might be a permanent condition.

When that's one of the first things you read in a book, you know it's going to be an amazingly hilarious book. And boy oh boy was it ever. My only regret is that I should

This was a nice surprise! This was funny with a sweet romance and some crazy hot dirty talk.

JD doesn’t believe in love at first sight. Or even lust at first sight. That’s why he is very surprised to stop in his tracks when he sees the gorgeous older man across the bar one night. JD likes his favourite bar even more now. When he gets introduced through mutual acquaintances, he finds out the guy’s name is Carter, and he’s a former drill sergeant.

But when the night ends JD still hasn’t got his phon

This was absolutely gorgeous and just what I needed today. A couple of hot guys ... a low angst story and A sweet warm romance

Loved the older/younger and snarky, funny banter !
* JD, 26, with long light brown hair,

is a writer/columnist looking for love. He's smart, funny, an was raised in an amazing, loving foster home with 9 foster brothers.
* U.S. Marine, Master Sergeant Carter Willis, 43, is a silver fox, strong, tough and in charge. Our book cover man...

One night, JD finds Zeus at Finn's Bar, but can't act on the attraction. Problem? Yes, because JD was on a date gone bad. Later, when JD leaves the bar, the "bad

Again, the insta-love was a bit too much for me. Loved the characters (especially the hilarious JD Green) but need more UST.

That was a fun read. Kinda of just popped up on my kindle and I took a chance with an author I never read. It was thoroughly entertaining.

I really liked JD's personality. As writer of the Dry Spell Diaries it has been months since he has seen any action but one night at Finn's changes everything.

HOLY FUCK! That is what I kept saying (quite loudly) out loud throughout this. You should have seen how wide my eyes were, how my mouth hung open nearly the entire time, and how caught up I was in this sweet, sexy af, beautifully hot ride. And all the laughs! Jeez, JD was absolutely hilarious from right off the bat! Knew then and there that this was going to be golden.

And Green's Marine! If I could pick (haha, autocorrect changed that to "lick"--guess that's also true) just one MC to be my real

Hot and Humorous

One Night at Finn's have the right balance of heat and humor.

R.G. Alexander continues expanding The Finn Family awesomeness with her new Finn's Pub series. Seamus's Pub patrons find their favorite gathering spot is the perfect backdrop to flirt, meet and fall in love.

Very entertaining and light hearted story.

True rating ... 4.5 stars :-) ... I am wavering and am considering giving this book a FULL 5 star rating, but there were a few things I would have liked answers to [NOTHING major or anything that impacts the story as a whole] and for now, am sticking with 4.5 stars, which is usually as high as I ever go, so this is still a FANTASTIC rating!! This book was wonderful and I HIGHLY recommend reading it :-)!!

Borrowed from Kindle Unlimited. -- Initially borrowed, but liked it SO much,
Great start for this novella series that are a spin-off of the author’s Finn series.
Two guys that, on paper, shouldn’t work but together are hot as hell. Loved it!

JD was hilarious and there was some minor excitement allowing Carter to be high-handed and then JD acts stupid. A little tug on the heartstrings over JD’s past, no clue about Carter’s. Sort of verbal daddy-kink and some sexy smut.

re-read 5/13/2020 meh. my mood sucks the life out of books these days.

re-read 10/24/2019

I enjoyed this a bit more this time, but I still felt like both MC had personality changes in the last half of the book. Could just be me🤷🏽‍♀️

—————original review 9/18/2018——————
I loved every minute of the first half of this book. It seemed that pod people had taken over the personalities of both MC after that. I still enjoyed it but not with same enthusiasm as the beginning.

First 50%= five stars
Last 50%= ma
4.3 Stars

Holy crap! Is this what I'm missing not having read only one of the other Finn books? Because if so...I need to rectify this travesty of oversight immediately.

1.5 star.

I liked the writing but I didn't connect to a single character in this book.
Ed Davis
This was a five star book turned into a three star book by two things I can’t stand.

First the good stuff. This was an excellent story with an incredible, sexy, irresistible character “Carter.” Wow, retired marine drill sergeant and loyal Dom who wants to care for his man.

The two things I can’t stand are the dreaded inner monologue (JD spends a good 1/3 of the book talking to himself) and characters who do really stupid stuff. JD is supposed to be a smart man. He may be intelligent, but he has

Loved it...I'm a big fan of the Finn Factor series and this "spin off" was great...awesome snark/banter, May/December love story...and a visit with many Finn's...You can not go wrong..I highly recommend this one, especially if you loved the Finn Factor series...or even if you haven't read it, and I highly recommend you do...I think this can be read as a standalone!! ...more

Absolutely loved this story!!!!

I’ve loved all things Finn but this story, I felt, was special. It wasn’t specifically about A Finn but it was, if I am being honest, my favorite in this series. I loved the heat and the humor!!! Perfection!

I must say that I did not read any of the Finn Factor series and now I am leaning towards reading them. This was a great read. It was entertaining, packed nicely filled with a little angst but overall easy to read.
This was so good. It was insta lust for both of them. But I was glad they don't just jump each other's bones at first glance. And I loved all the secondary characters. OMG, I'm glad I did give this book a chance. ❤❤❤

I don't think you could read this as standalone. Otherwise, you would be screaming 'who the hell are these people??' 😂😂😂
As a matter of fact, I don't read all of Finn Factors series. But I do read few. Thank goodness, it was enough.

Omg!!! What a great way to start a spin off series. I love J.D. and Carter. I can’t wait for more. Though I still have more Finns to read about, hint hint. Seriously, I am enjoying these books so much.

This one checked all the boxes!!

I've never meet a Finn book that I didn't love. Even though this one is about a friend of the Finn's, it is still hot, like melt your panties and make you sweat like it is the middle of July in the South HOT!! Advice columnist JD has had a bit of a dry spell with bad dates after the next until his eyes land on a handsome older man that he can't seem to forget about!! If you like your men hot and the scenes hotter, then this is the book for you!!

By Far Alexander’s Best Yet

If I stopped and thought super critically about it, I could maybe come up with a criticism or two. But honestly, I’m so freaking in love with this book that it doesn’t even matter. So much voice, so much heart, so much heat. I highlighted passages, and I never do that.

I’m a fan of most of RG Alexander’s books, but this is my favorite by far. ♥️💛💚💙💜

Zeus! Why can't all bad dates end like be struck by lightning. To have everything you wanted and some you didn't even know you did, be right in front of yours eyes. To know all those cheesy, corny, awww inspiring movies you grew up with and truly never thought were real life come true. On the worst night JD was struck. ...more
Oct 03, 2017 rated it did not like it
I don't know why this is so highly rated. Maybe it's exciting or groundbreaking if you haven't read any m/m romance. There were a lot of extra characters that I didn't know or care about. The book was rather short, but rambling at the same time. I didn't like the "daddy" vibe, or the instalove. More story, less talk about other people. And Toni got off too easy. ...more

So. Much. Awesome!!! I LOVED loved loved Carter and JD!! *all the swoony sighs* The only problem? Now I'm done and have to wait for more Finn's. But ... reading this sure made that wait easier! ...more
Mar 02, 2020 rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
This is a feel good story. There’s nothing really overly special about it if I want to be honest. The characters are like characters I see every day in the books I read. But it kept me grinning and I’m still thinking about it long after I finished it. There’s a bit of a mystery, a little violence, a whole lot of well-meaning friends and family, and bunch of Finns.

There's also an age gap and lots of humor - two of my favorite things. An excellent book. This has gone on my all-time favorites list
This is another case where the story looses a little something for me because of the insta-love even though I really did enjoy the characters. Honestly this is a pretty high rating for me since it contains two of my least favorite tropes, age gaps and insta-love. But J.D. was just adorable and I loved his humor. Of course the setting of this story helps since I love the Finn's and their crazy world.

Admittedly by the end of this story I really want a spin-off series about all of J.D.'s family. I
