Polson Falls #2

4.75 Stars

From the international bestselling author of The Simple Wild and Ten Tiny Breaths comes a new stand-alone enemies-to-lovers, small-town romance.

Justine MacDermott is in what she would call a transition period: squatting in her best friend’s house and working in an appliance store in Polson Falls while the man she was supposed to marry starts a new life with someone else.

She’s definitely
not thinking about slashing his tires and wishing his vital extremities would fall off.

When newcomer Garrett Harrington strolls into Murphy’s Appliances looking to buy a refrigerator, Justine convinces herself she’s found her rebound. Or the next love of her life. Either works. But a chance encounter leads her to discover that Garrett isn’t who he made himself out to be, and he’s more interested in hustling her kindly old boss out of his family business
and using her to do it.

Furious at being fooled by yet another man and itching for retribution, Justine enlists the help of unlikely townsfolk to battle Harrington Group’s big-city development plans for Polson Falls.

It’s all going to plan
until Justine finds herself crossing enemy lines.

The Hustler Next Door is set in the Polson Falls world. The books in this series can be read in any order.

Justine + Garrett

We already met Justine in THE PLAYER NEXT DOOR.
She is Scarlet's BFF and at the end of the first book she broke up with her boyfriend and moved in with Scarlet. She also quit her job with her uncle's head hunter firm and is now working in Ned's little appliance store in Polson Falls.
And that's where Garrett comes in.
At first he only wants a new fridge.
Justine and Garrett immediately click and they flirt and chat and they're halfway married in their minds after that first meeting.
But as it turns out, Garrett is in town to buy up properties and build new ugly things in the pretty old town. And that's not something Justine and her gang of retirement home friends are going to let happen! LOL!

Will there be a chance for a happily ever after for Justine and Garrett??


Also, you should read The Player Next Door before reading this book - both are standalone romances, but lots of people are in both books a lot - so please read the first book first!


This was another perfect small town love story from K. A. Tucker!
Justine was already so funny and crazy in Scarlet and Shane's book and now in her own story - she's just as great.
She's a tiny thing of energy and anger and heartbreak and fun and flirt. I really love her.
And Garrett. We don't really love him at first - obviously. Because he's the big bad city guy trying to destroy the cute little town. Like in a bad Christmas movie. LOL. But no. He's not bad and he doesn't want to destroy things to just make money. He has great ideas for the town. But it takes Justine a while to figure that out. And by then it might be too late for a happily ever after with the hot city boy. Or maybe not. We definitely have many hilarious and adorable moments to enjoy until a happily ever after might happen...

I loved reading this.
It was a super cute and hilarious romance with an amazing cast! I could so see this whole town and its people as a TV Show!
THE HUSTLER NEXT DOOR was a sweet and adorable and hilarious small town romance! 
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Garrett - this one is mine!
