Kickstart My Heart

(Burgers and Brew Crue #1)

4.53  ·  Rating details ·  351 ratings  ·  99 reviews

There’s nothing better than a packed house on a Saturday night, and co-owning the hottest restaurant and bar in town with my best friends, isn’t so bad either. We put everything into Burgers and Brew. My job is to keep the alcohol moving and the patrons coming back for more. I won’t let anyone break my focus.

That was until I saw her.

As much as I try, I can’t fight it

Nadine Bookaholic
I became a fan of Lacey Black's about two years ago when I read one of her Summer Sister books and I have been hooked since. I love the way she weaves her stories around either a close family or in this case a close group of friends. I think once you meet the men of the Burgers and Brew Crue you are going to want more of them, and more of Lacey's books as well.

KICKSTART MY HEART was High on the sweet & sexy, low on the angst, which makes a perfect combination!

Mallory is looking for a fresh start

I have to say that whenever I read a Lacey Black story, I feel like I want to live in that story 😊

Mallory a single parent to little three year old Lizzie. And man will you fall in love with this little girl. She packed her whole life up and moved to get a fresh start. She’s living in an apartment she can barely afford but at least its better than where she came from. So she gets a job as a waitress at Burgers and Brew and she was happy. She knows she will make it and prove to herself that she ca

Such a fantastic read. I could not read it fast enough, but boy was I sad when it was over! Mallory and Walker were such an addictive couple. I loved watching their story unfold before my eyes. Mallory just wanted to do right by her daughter and Walker doesn't date employees... I can tell this is going to be a great series full of awesome characters and feel good love stories. Definitely recommend! ~Andrea

A wonderful intro into a new series. I am so in love with these guys of the brew crue!!
Mallory moves to a new town getting away from a bad situation. The meet cute of Mallory & Walker will make you swoon & awe all at once. The push & pull between these two was written so wonderfully. These characters, even the other guys were so likable. I didn’t want this story to end. Walker is sweet & alpha, but the way he is so protective to Mallory & Lizzie made my heart melt. I am not sure how Lacey Black
I dived into this blindly (this author is a ONE-CLICK for me & so I just signed up without looking at anything) boy did she deliver, I CAN'T WAIT FOR MORE, check out my FULL REVIEW & TEASER on my Blog -> CLICK HERE

Man can Ms. Black write the cutest little girls!!! Lizzie stole my heart just like she stole “Walks” heart along with Jameson, Isaac, and Jasper. There is nothing I love more in a book then when a little girl steals the hearts of the big and macho men! Not to mention the fact that Mallory also stole Walker’s heart. I couldn’t put this book down from the moment I started it. I’m not one to finish a book in basically one sitting and I almost did. I fell asleep reading last night and I finished as ...more

I’m always in the mood for one of Lacey Black’s sweet and funny small-town based romantic comedies, especially when it’s the start of a new series from her. I’ve read all of Lacey’s work, and for me, her small town romances are amongst the very best of this trope. Lacey typically anchors her small-town romance series around a big, close-knit and loving family, and while Kickstart My Heart wasn’t quite that, it was every bit the warm and witty, feel-good love story I was hoping it woul

I’m calling it now that this is going to be my favorite Lacey Black series, which is saying a lot because I love the Summer Sisters!

Walker is a happily confirmed bachelor. Co-owner of a successful bar and restaurant with his best friends, he has female companionship when he needs it with no strings attached. But everything changes in an instant when he lays eyes on his newest employee.

Mallory needed a fresh start. She literally picked up her life and packed everything she could into her car and

This is the first book in a new series by this author and it gets of to a great start. This is the Burgers and Brew Crue book #1 and starts of with Walker and Mallory story and the journey that they go. This author has a great writing style that is really easy to follow and the story line flows throughout.

Walker is a a co owner of the bar and restaurant with his friends and he is a loyal and great guy that takes care of the people he loves, he is a very protective man and once you start reading

This is only the second book by Lacey that I have read but I enjoyed them both. Walker and his friends own and operate Burgers and Brew restaurant and bar. Walker is the man behind the bar. He has no interest in a relationship and he doesn’t mess around with anyone who works at the business. Mallory has recently moved to town and applies to work at Burgers and Brew. One look at Mallory is all it takes for Walker to begin to question his own rules. Mallory and Walker make a great couple. Mallory ...more

I absolutely LOVED this one! Walker and Mallory's story would just grab you right from the start. I feel like this is what I've been waiting for. I envy their story and the love they have for each other throughout reading it.

Walker is one of a kind hero. He is so sweet and hot at the same time! When his eyes met Mallory's eyes for the first time, deep down he knew he is a goner. He truly did fall hard and fast for Mallory and her daughter. I can't even explain how I feel whenever Walker is with

I have read every one of Lacey's books and some of them multiple times. In my opinion, this one is the best one yet! I fell in love with Walker, Mal and Mal's daughter. You can see how Lacey's writing just keeps getting better and better with every novel.

Walker is HOT! I enjoyed seeing who he was before Mal, while getting to know her and her daughter, and after he knew he loved her. He was a strong, responsible gentleman. What I also really enjoyed about this particular story was the dynamic, f

5 Stars!

OH. MY. GOODNESS. Just when I thought River's Edge would be my forever favorite series by the crazy talented Lacey Black, she goes and writes this beauty, leaving me wanting all the rest of the words that this series is sure to give and to know so much more about everyone I met. I mean it's a brave new series with a brand new crew and every single one of them owns a piece of me already.

Kickstart My Heart is the first standalone in the Burgers and Brüe Crew series and y'all what a freakin

This is a new series from Lacey Black. In this book, we get to meet a new set of characters. This book concentrates around the characters of Walker and Mallory. I liked the storyline. I love when a big ole man is dropped to his knees by a little girl. I feel like we are being given small snippets of the characters who will get some books in the future. Dual point of view. No cliffhanger.

This is my first book by this author. I've read all her books with Kaylee Ryan and loved them. This one was just as good. Can't wait for the next one. I will be reading more by Lacey.

Oh, what a fun, enjoyable easy read that was. I finished it in one sitting and can't even describe how much I loved the Burgers and Brew Crue. Each and every one of that little quartet of friends burrowed into my heart and I can't wait to read all of their stories!

But first up, we have Walker and Mallory's story. And what a sweet story that was. Lizzie, Mallory's daughter, was simply a delight and I had a big freaking goofy grin on my face every time she turned one of those broody four owners of

She needs this job to provide for her and her daughter, when she meet's Walker, one of the owners, she's mesmerized.

I absolutely loved this book. Walker was everything! He is the perfect kind of book boyfriend to me. I love how Mallory was a strong independent woman. She wanted to make a life on her own for her and her daughter. The real star of this book for me was Lizzy though. I love a good single parent book where the kids are also one of the main characters instead of just being in the background and lacey did a great job with lizzy. The relationship that lizzy, walker and the rest of guys all had melted ...more

Lacey has done it again! Walker and Mallory’s story won me over immediately. Walker and his friends are charming and fiercely loyal. Mallory and her beautiful daughter didn’t stand a chance at resisting. You won’t regret the start of what is sure to be an amazing series.

This was such a sweet romance. Walker was so awesome, he saw what he wanted and went for it.
Mallory was strong and determine to provide for yourself and give her daughter the best live possible.
You can't forget Lizzie Lou, she had me cracking up and just made the book that much more enjoyable. I can't not wait for more from this series.

I love when my favorite authors start a new series. Kickstart My Heart is a fabulous beginning to Lacey Black's new Burgers and Brew Crue series. Four kickass men who own the hottest bar/restaurant in town, and have each other's back no matter what. The first to find his HEA is Walker. He rarely dates because of his work ethic and he never dates employees or customers. He has the restraining order to prove that's a bad idea. However when he meet the bar's newest waitress, Mallory, his protective ...more

Kickstart My Heart is the first book in an all-new series by Lacey Black. I have read every word Lacey has even written, and I have loved all of them. Her writing just keeps getting better and better, addictive even. I am so excited about this series! Each man in the Brew Crüe is delicious in their own ways.

Mallory needed a fresh start so she packed up her SUV and hit the road with her daughter in tow. Everything they owned was in her Ford Escape. Now, in their apartment they she can barely aff

Kickstart My Heart is a great addition to this authors already incredible list of books that she has released, and now she has opened up a can of worms, the can of worms being the Burgers and Brew Crue that I am dying to dive into. Kickstart My Heart is a whole new world that Black hasn't introduced us to and when I say whole new world, I am not only saying the characters, but the tropes and plotlines too.

This authors writing is something I always fall face first into and Walker and Mallorys sto

Avid reader, writer, mother, and wife! I love to read contemporary romance. Add in a little "spice" or hot guys in uniform pants, and I'm a happy woman. There's just something about diving into a book and engrossing in the magic of your hero and heroine getting their happily ever after. ...more
