One Long Embrace (Eternal Bachelors Club Book 5) – Tina Folsom

Tara Pierpont has had it with her interfering parents who want her to find a rich guy to marry just like her older sister did. She’s ready to rebel against them, and a chance for her rebellion appears in the form of a handsome waiter at an exclusive Hampton’s party.

When Jay Bohannon attends the anniversary party of his friend’s parents and is mistaken for a waiter, he wants to immediately clear up the misunderstanding. But then Tara opens up to him and confesses that she’s sick of entitled rich guys and just wants to have fun with somebody who wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

The thing is: Jay is anything but poor or ordinary. He’s exactly the kind of guy Tara is trying to avoid.


Although this is book five, it is the first book that i have read in this series, i didnt find it a problem this book makes a good stand alone in my opinion.

I like the plot line, it all starts with a misunderstanding.

Tara, from a well to do family thinks Jay is a waiter, not the self made millionaire that he is, but that’s ok as Tara is sick of all the rich men her parents keep pushing her at and wants to meet a man that is down to earth. Jay wants a woman to see him, to get to know him not what is in his bank account so he doesnt correct Tara’s assumption, you can see where the story goes from there now cant you.
I dont want to give too much more away so i will stop there.
Tina has taken a plot line that isnt unique and given it a fresh spin, keeping the reader’s attention until the end throwing some twist and turns in just to keep you on your toes.
I liked the characters, but ive got to say that Jay was my favorite. I loved how Jay came from having nothing growing up, to now having almost anything his hearts desires, but he has worked hard for it so hes not arrogant at all and comes across as humble. Tara was an ok character but i did feel that when the truth came out i did feel she was a little unreasonable and kind of childish in her response.
There are a lot of hot sex scenes in this book and they are well described as is always the way in Tina’s books.
Overall a good quick read from a wonderful author.
