4.5 Stars for Delivered Fast (Portland Heat #3) by Annabeth Albert #MM #Romance @AnnabethAlbert


Title: Delivered Fast
Author Name: Annabeth Albert
Publication Date & Length: May 26, 2015 – 128 pgs


Portland, Oregon, aka Hotlandia, where the coffee shops, restaurants, and bakeries are ready to serve everything piping hot, fresh, and ready to go—like the hard-working, hard-bodied men behind the counters—with no reservations…

Sure, Chris O’Neal has problems. His restaurant is still co-owned by his ex. His flannel-and-tattoos style is making him accidentally trendy. He can’t remember the last time he went out and had fun. But he’s not lonely, he’s driven. And the hot bakery delivery boy is not his problem, no matter how sweet his buns.

Chris is old enough to know Lance Degrassi’s sculpted good looks and clever double entendres spell nothing but trouble. Lance is still in college—he should be hitting the clubs and the books, chasing guys his own age, not pursuing some gruff motorcycle-riding workaholic. Especially when he’ll be leaving for grad school in a few months. But Lance keeps hanging around, lending a hand, charming Chris to distraction. Maybe some steaming hot no-strings indulgence won’t hurt.

Then again, maybe it will…

I loved this story.  I always love reading about cities that I have either lived in or currently live in and hearing names that are familiar is always fun.
Lance and Chris were such a great couple.  I can totally see each of their perspectives too.  Albert did an amazing job creating their relationship.
Both were living their lives and when they come together, it’s explosive and heart warming and even though it’s quite fast, it totally fits their personalities.
I really love Robby – his attitude throughout the book was awesome and I wanted to just squeeze him when he was telling Chris how it was.
All around, I loved this book.  It adds to the series and even though I don’t necessarily think the romance was “fast”, I can see why the title was delivered fast.  I actually hoped that there would be more of an epilogue at the end and was slightly disappointed that we were not given more.
