Porter Beckman is a 30 yr. old guy who lives in Birmingham, Alabama where his dreams of starting his own brewery came true. Porter runs Lovibond Brewery with his two best friends Stout & Tap. Porter is overwhelmed lately doing all the graphic design & marketing, as well as testing out new beers for Lovibond. He is in desperate need of some help, so he's relieved he will soon have an intern to pick up some of the slack. Frankee Dawson is a 21 yr. old woman who recently graduated college with a degree in graphic design & marketing. She is excited to have an interview at Lovibond & is hoping she gets their summer internship. If she gets the job, her boss will be a guy she's been crushing on since she was 16. A man she'd always thought was absolutely gorgeous. Porter has always known her as an awkward teenager. She hasn't seen him in about three years, & she can't help but hope he notices how much she's changed. Porter is stunned when the girl he once referred to as kiddo walks into his office for an interview. Little Frankee is all grown up & a beautiful woman. He's known her for about five years, since Lovibond opened, and her father came to work for them as their warehouse manager. She's always been like family. She's very intelligent & extremely qualified so he offers her the job. As Porter & Frankee spend so much time working together, they grow closer. The attraction they both feel becomes harder to ignore. She's young & innocent & he should stay away, but Porter can't help how badly he wants her. Frankee keeps wondering if maybe she could have a no-strings fling with her hot boss for the summer. She plans on moving to Austin, Texas with her friends at the end of the summer so what could it hurt to have a little fun. Porter struggles with not acting on his desire for Frankee, but eventually fails & gives in and makes a move on her. -My attraction to him is insane. -I love kissing this man. Love the feel of his tongue against mine. Love the taste of his mouth. -"You're beautiful and perfect and I've never wanted anyone more than I want you." Frankee is only in town for three more months. She plans to enjoy every moment she can get with her sexy, insatiable boss. It's just sex & mutual satisfaction. They sneak around since there's almost a ten year age difference between them. What was to be casual sex soon turns into more. Porter's never felt this way about anyone & doesn't want to lose Frankee, but when someone from the past brings drama to his doorstep will it jeopardize what he has with the woman he's falling for. I really enjoyed this whole series & adore all the Lovibond men! Porter was super delicious & I'd been looking forward to his story for a while. He didn't disappoint. I loved this series takes place where I live. I've been to all the places in the book, so that was super cool.

    Too much OW drama, but the h said what we, readers, want in every book: “I wanted to be the one—the only one—to give you babies. Knowing that she has that part of you growing inside her… it taints it for me.” Yes authors, we want the h be the only one in everything to the H.

Georgia Cates turns up the heat in her third and final installment in the Lovibond Series as she has readers getting a little tipsy as we can’t helped but love the intensity and attraction of Frankee and Porter. Frankee is the newly hired graphic designer intern hired at Lovibond, a brewing company that her father is also employed at. One of Frankee’s boss that she reports to happens to be Porter Beckman, the man she met several years ago when she was sixteen and had a huge crush on him. And till to this day, has a crush on. Sex and fun. That’s what we chose to call this. But this isn’t just sex. This isn’t us having a little fun before she moves to Austin. We were wrong. So very wrong. This is more. ” Porter is taken aback how beautiful and sexy Frankee has grown up to be. He can’t but helped but be drawn to Frankee. Well it didn’t take long for Porter and Frankee to act on their sexual attractions. They both agreed it would by a three month summer fling until Frankee moves to Austin with her friends. But within a month, deep feelings and affections begins to develop. Will Porter be able to let Frankee go? And how will Frankee’s dad react to the news that his baby girl is dating his boss? Porter was a great book to wrap up this series. This book was a little more steamy than the previous books since Frankee and Porter did go at it like rabbits. Overall, I enjoyed the fast paced book and the bits of crazy that was inserted. I must admit that crazy factor was a little soap opera-ish but I couldn’t stop reading because it was entertaining. So if you are looking for a romance that brews right amount of romance, sweetness, and bold taste then this book is for you. Georgia Cates

I am not keen on man whore and virgin stories and this in essence is what this is plus falling in love with your boss. What I didn't like is in the blurb it talks of his past coming back to bite him. This happens in the form of an ex, well not an ex, she's a one night stand he ran out on her when she took a bathroom break cos she was asking for more and he wasn't interested.

She turns up and says she's pregnant just as the H/h are thinking of getting engaged. The way Frankee reasons herself around this situation is handled really well, she takes time to consider and she is understandably hurt and not sure she can live with another woman having her husband-to-be's child in their lives. This is reasonable and the conversations her and Porter have are realistic and the way they don't just brush it aside is handled well. The issue I have is that the author chose to make the ex a nutter so she stalks, makes unreasonable demands and is delusional about her relationship with Porter. When I say a nutter, she is a total fruit loop, while he is the country's hero, it just feels they were given these roles to make the situation and his actions acceptable. As a result Porter goes to scans though he only does this cos Frankee says he should, I understand he doesn't want to touch her belly or have much involvement but he comes off completely uninterested. It's difficult I can understand resenting giving financial support until he has a paternity test but this is the consequences of living the life style he did even if he was careful. But with his attitude even if he hates the mother, I would worry about him as a future father to my children. I just felt depicting the ex as a nutter was a bit of a cop out. This is the first book I have read in this series.

    It took a little longer for this book to release than was initially planned but it was worth the wait. I do enjoy Georgia Cates books, for the most part. I'm not a huge fan of these books but they are entertaining. I just haven't found another series like hers that I loved like the Beauty Series. Nothing tops that one. I did enjoy this read but was surprised about the direction it took near the end. However, it was a good way to show the strength of the love between Porter and Frankie.

    Frankee is definitely not a teenager anymore when she goes to work for the same company her dad works for and her boss, Porter is taking notice. When I read the synopsis for this book I was all in. I am a sucker for taboo, and what's more taboo than a guy falling for his younger employee? There was definitely hotness in this book, I mean fan yourself worthy hotness. I did find it a bit slow at times and thought the "okay, now we are talking. HOLY CRAP!" moment could have came in sooner.

    Porter is the final book in the Lovibond series and I'm super sad to see it end! I've loved all these books and while Porter wasn't my favourite of the three is was still a brilliant story that I devoured. Porter & Frankee have an instant connection. They are breathtaking. SUPER HOT. Georgia wrote these two so well. They matched perfectly. Porter is quick paced, it holds the reader captive and refuses to let go.

    This can be considered the tale of two books. The Sexy vs The Crazy. Let's get to the good stuff first, shall we?

The Sexy This story focuses on an office romance that is complicated by the fact that not only must the couple hide from co-workers, but they also have to hide from the heroine's Dad, who also works at the company. Frances "Frankee" Dawson doesn't meet Porter Beckham for the first time during her internship interview. The two have known each other for years, courtesy of her Dad. But Frankee is no longer the tomboy that Porter remembers. She's become a siren he can't seem to stop thinking about. I would have expected some drawn out sexual tension, and while there is that, these two really waste no time with one another. Maybe it was because Frankee was just an intern and would be leaving town in the fall, but they decide to throw caution to the wind, and get it on. Over and over again. They fully embraced the three hour lunch, and I was a little surprised that no one called them out on it. I would have liked some added tension with some co-worker suspicion. However, a good part of this book was just the couple finding creative ways to get-together. The story isn't all sex, but there is a hell of a lot of it. The two even develop corny, yet cute nicknames for each other - Porno Princess and Magic Mouth. Everything seemed so perfect, I thought we'd just glide to a HEA. Boy was I wrong!! The Crazy When I say crazy, I don't mean crazy good. I mean crazy for coocoo puffs crazy. Or as Ozzy would say, "on the crazy train." Since things seemed so perfect between Porter and Frankee, I should have seen this coming. But their lives are literally thrown upside down when this person (I'll keep the "who" a secret) enters their lives. However, it doesn't take long for it to be clear that this person is certifiable. While this book had a little bit of a soap opera feel, I literally could not put the book down during this whole part. I had to see how crazy the crazy got. The end of the crazy felt abrupt to me, I would have preferred it to be more rounded out, so it left me with a bunch of questions. However, we are returned safely back to the Sexy storyline and a HEA. If you are looking for a whole lot of sexy and a little bit of crazy, check this one out. Note: this is book 3 in a series, but I didn't read the previous two books and didn't feel lost at any time. *An ARC was received for an honest review. For more reviews, visit

    4.5 Stars I have loved this series so much. I am truly sad that it has come to an end. And Georgia ended this series perfectly with Porter. Frankee gets hired as the new graphic designer intern at Lovibond. But she's not new to the brewery. Her father was hired there when it opened and she found herself helping out here and there and also crushing on her dad's boss Porter. When Frankee comes into Porter's office, he can't believe how much Frankee has grown in the last 5 years. She has grown in a 4.5 Stars I have loved this series so much.

When Frankee comes into Porter's office, he can't believe how much Frankee has grown in the last 5 years. She has grown in a beautiful and intelligent woman that he can't seem to get out his head. It doesn't long for Frankee and Porter to give in to their attraction. However, they have to keep a secret not only because it's boss and intern but because they don't want her dad finding out. They agree to a summer fling since she is moving in the fall and well, Porter has never had a long term relationship at all. Sounds like the perfect set-up, right!? These two are just too great together and they soon realize that not too far into their agreement. Will Porter be able to let Frankee move? Will Frankee's father be ok with these two dating, especially given Porter's past? What will the other employees think? Georgia definitely ended this series on a high note. She gave us more spice and sexiness in this book - Porter and Frankee went at little damn bunnies in heat!! And I loved it!! And the added clusterfuck was perfect - it was very entertaining to watch play out. While a part of me wanted to see how the "clusterfuck" handed the results, it didn't hurt the book overall. Great ending to an amazing series!!!

    **3 maybe 3.25** I know this is an unpopular opinion after seeing so much love for his book but give me a chance to explain. I was messaging my fellow reading girls and they encouraged me to push through. I was ready to put this book down at 50%. It just wasn't doing it for me. The story line seemed forced, the characters a bit childish and well quite frankly I was bored. I found myself skimming so much hoping it would get better.

I just didn't connect to Porter like I did the first two books in this series. I LOVED Tap and enjoyed Stout so I just wasn't sure what was happening here. I love these Lovibond characters. They are some of my favorites from this author. I did push through Porter and the last maybe 25% -30% of the book was where it was for me. It was like a totally different story and set of characters for me. It was what I wanted the entire book but only got a small portion of. The tension between Frankee and Porter was finally where it needed to be. The obstacles were on point in their love story. It was finally a story I could find myself enjoying and I was sad it ended so quickly from there. I love Georgia's stories and she will always, always be a got to author for me. Just because this story fell a bit flat to me doesn't mean you won't enjoy it. That's the great thing about reading right? We all have very different perspectives. I look forward to what Georgia has next!

    * A review copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review * ~ 5 Magical Stars ~ What a bittersweet ending to an AMAZING series!!! I have been looking forward to reading Porter since finishing reading book 1 Tap. So I was thrilled when I got to read this book, but I am also sad because that means this series has come to an end. I have loved each of the Lovibond Men and the women they fell in love with. Porter is the third and final book in the Lovibond Series by Georgia Cates. * A review copy was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review * ~ 5 Magical Stars ~ What a bittersweet ending to an AMAZING series!!!

I have loved each of the Lovibond Men and the women they fell in love with. Porter is the third and final book in the Lovibond Series by Georgia Cates. This is a standalone novel told in Dual POV. There is NO cliffhanger and is a complete story. You do not have to read the books in order, but it is my recommendation that you do. That way you get the full feel of these characters and the bond they have. You do see all the guys in each of the books, so it will help you to connect with them if you read them in order. I thought the pace and flow of this story worked well for the characters and their story. There was only one thing I felt was lacking and that was a more detailed conclusion to something that happens in the storyline towards the end. I wish we would’ve gotten all the details to what happened in that situation. It didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the book, it just left me with some questions. In this book we follow the love story of Porter Beckman and Frankee Dawson. Porter is the third co owner of the Lovibond Brewery. He is looking to hire someone to help him in the marketing and graphic design of things at Lovibond. This is where he meets Frankee, what he doesn’t realize is that he already knows her, from years ago. Frankee is the daughter of the Lovibond warehouse manager. But she isn’t the young girl he remembers, she’s all grown up now. What happens after that is the journey of two people who fall for each other and what they will do to be together. This was such a sweet and sexy story. Now don’t get me wrong….Porter and Frankee have their ups and downs and bumps along the way, but what I loved the most was how they worked things through together!! I also enjoyed seeing Lawry, Stout and Adelyn again in this story. I did miss Lucas though, I wish we would’ve seen more of him. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a forbidden, sweet and sexy story of two people who fight the odds and come out stronger in the end. This is a story that you will get swept up in and won’t want to put it down until the end. Follow Us at :: Book Bitches Blog | Facebook | Twitter

    4.5 Stars I so have enjoyed this series by Georgia Cates! What a great group of friends and even better women who love them. I like that the books overlap a bit on timelines so that we get to see scenes from a different perspective than we previously read. This book follows Porter And Frankee. It wants to come off as a taboo or forbidden romance but I think it really plays out as a friends to lovers.

But what really develops is a very trusting and loving relationship that neither of them say coming. I really enjoyed the fact that the two lead characters are so comfortable in their relationship that the drama that could have occurred when things hit the wall, is just handle very maturely. These true truly do love one another. It was great to see the other two couples and catch up with them. The epilogue....gah! Loved it! Read the whole series if you can, but this one can easily read as a stand alone. *Complimentary copy provided for an honest review.

    I'm not sure how I missed the Lovibond Series until now but Porter was really a fun read! Each book is based on a different owner of Lovibond Brewery and this is the third and final book in the series. So obviously it can be read as a standalone. Porter is in his early thirties and co-owner to this thriving brewery. When he decides to hire an intern for the summer to ramp up some of his marketing graphics, he had no clue it was his warehouse manger's daughter, Frankee.

Porter is in his early thirties and co-owner to this thriving brewery. When he decides to hire an intern for the summer to ramp up some of his marketing graphics, he had no clue it was his warehouse manger's daughter, Frankee. He hasn't seen her in several years and to,say she's grown up (and out) is an understatement. She's gorgeous and so tempting yet still nearly a decade younger than he is. This will be a tempting three month stint. Frankee has always had a crush for the dark-haired Porter. Too bad her father would hang him if they ever took things to another level. But attraction be damned, working this close will be impossible. Steam. Holy smokes. Steam. If you are a fan on smoking hot romance, this is the book for you. The bulk of the story is really quite easy reading and low on angst and drama until towards the end. It gets chock full of drama and I couldn't wait to see how it ended up. I plan to go back and check out the other brewery partners' books because if they're all like Porter's they'll be a hit! Advanced copy received by author in exchange for my honest review.

    ***ARC Provided by the Author and Give me Books*** I liked the story of Porter and Frankee. I loved the age difference, the idea that her father was an employee at the brewery, and that her life was changed for the better because her dad worked there, making the relationship feel like there was a lot to lose if they didn't handle it well.

I loved the age difference, the idea that her father was an employee at the brewery, and that her life was changed for the better because her dad worked there, making the relationship feel like there was a lot to lose if they didn't handle it well. The parts of the book that focused on Porter and Frankee were interesting, and they were hot. I liked their chemistry and their attraction to one another felt real and authentic. But, there was a lot going on in this book. Enough that, I think, the central romance was diluted to the point that it became a part of many parts of the story and not the focus. This was an older man, younger woman romance. As well as a forbidden romance, an office romance, a boss to intern romance and one that was complicated by a woman from the past. This was a lot, and I thought it was too much as there are a lot of tropes and subplots in this, and I felt that a little more attention to a couple of them would have served the story a lot better than a little attention to a number of subplots. I read this as a standalone, and while I was not the biggest fan, I do think this would be one that fans of the other books in the series would enjoy.

    3 Stars If you like forbidden type romance and / or the older man/younger woman trope then this book should appeal hugely. Add in a crazy ex hook up and it makes for just enough angst to make it interesting . This was probably my least favourite of the three books but still an enjoyable read. HEA? Yes Cheating? No, these two fall hard for each other.

That’s all she was… until three years passed and she walked into my office for an interview. Frankee Dawson is no longer that girl I once called Kiddo. She’s grown into a beautiful, sexy, desirable woman. Very desirable. And that’s a problem. She’s my employee’s daughter. Lovibond family. And too young for me. Too innocent. 4 stars ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date August 4, 2017 Craft beer and the sexy men who brew it. My employee’s daughter. The tomboy. The kid who once did odd jobs around the brewery. That’s all she was… until three years passed and she walked into my office for an interview. Frankee Dawson is no longer that girl I once called Kiddo. She’s grown into a beautiful, sexy, desirable woman. Very desirable. And that’s a problem. She’s my employee’s daughter. Lovibond family. And too young for me. Too innocent. I want to feel her respond to my kiss. I want her body to tremble as she anticipates my touch. I want to learn all the places that bring her pleasure. But mostly I want her to know that she’s never truly been loved by a man until me. Frankee is my intern and under me for the summer. Literally. It’s a difficult secret to maintain when you can’t keep your hands off each other. This was supposed to be a hot summer fling. Sex and fun without commitment. That’s what we called it. But we were wrong. This is more. I’ve never felt this way about a woman. Never cared more about someone else’s happiness more than my own. I love her. And I’m happy, so damn happy… until a terrible mistake from my past springs forward and threatens to rip us apart. There are a million reasons for her to leave me. And trust me, she should. But all I really need is one good reason for her to stay. ••••••••••• REVIEW: PORTER is the third and final installment in Georgia Cates’ contemporary, adult LOVIBOND erotic, romance series focusing on three friends --Lucas ‘Tap’ Broussard, Oliver ‘Stout’ Thorn, and William ‘Porter ‘ Beckman of Lovibond Brewery. This is Lovibond co-owner Porter Beckman, and graphic designer Frankee Dawson’s story line. PORTER can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Told from dual first person points of view (Porter and Frankee) PORTER follows the forbidden relationship between thirty year old Lovibond co-owner Porter Beckman, and his new intern, daughter of his warehouse manager, twenty one year old graphic designer Frankee Dawson. Five years earlier Frankee Dawson worked as a student sweeping the warehouse and doing odd jobs, but the Frankee that has returned is no longer the gangly teen, but a beautiful woman that has caught the boss’s eye. Applying for the twelve week summer intern position, Frankee comes face to face with the man that has starred in all of her fantasies for close to five years, and the man with whom Frankee will fall in love. What ensues is the building but secret relationship between Frankee and Porter, and the potential fall out when Porter’s past reveals some damaging news. Frankee Dawson has had a crush on Porter Beckman since the day he hired her father five years earlier. Now a graphic designer, Frankee hopes to impress the boss with more than her artwork, but with her body as well. Porter Beckman knows that to get involved with Frankee Dawson could threaten his relationship with her father, his warehouse manager, but Porter’s attraction to Frankee is palpable; his desire for Frankee grows quickly, and has our story line hero considering a possible future-together. But someone from Porter’s past is making life difficult for our story line couple, and in the end, Frankee must make a decision whether to stay, or move forward without the man that she loves. With the twelve week deadline looming, Frankee thought for sure she new what she wanted but a surprise announcements halts everyone in their tracks. The relationship between Porter and Frankee is one of immediate attraction; a forbidden romance between boss and intern, but a relationship that is fated for our story line couple. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. Our heroine was a virgin until Porter Beckman offered Frankee more than a one-night stand. All of the previous couples and characters play secondary and supporting roles including Tap and Lawry, Stout and Adelyn, as well as Frankee’s parents, Scott and Tara Dawson; Porter’s parents Kit and Gabe Beckman, as well as Porter’s office manager Molly who sees past their friendly facade, and Frankee’s besties Dillyn and Ava. It was nice catching up with Tap and Stout, with a glimpse into the future for all three series’ couples. PORTER is a fun and flirty story line; a sexy and sassy couple whose attraction to one another wars with their sense of right and wrong- a forbidden romance that sees two people find their happily ever after but not before facing sins of the past. The premise is impassioned; the characters are spirited and realistic; the romance is provocative and seductive. PORTER is a playful and delightful read that will having you asking for more.

    In the final book of the series, Porter, readers of the Lovibond men’s stories witness just how much a man can change his ways when he finds the ‘One’. And while it’s difficult enough to start a new relationship - one that is much different than any before it - Porter Beckman further complicates things, both professionally and personally, by choosing someone who should be off-limits due to her father’s position in the Lovibond company, the fact that Porter’s her boss, and the 9 year age differen In the final book of the series, Porter, readers of the Lovibond men’s stories witness just how much a man can change his ways when he finds the ‘One’. And while it’s difficult enough to start a new relationship - one that is much different than any before it - Porter Beckman further complicates things, both professionally and personally, by choosing someone who should be off-limits due to her father’s position in the Lovibond company, the fact that Porter’s her boss, and the 9 year age difference that illustrates just how innocent she is. But regardless of the forbidden aspect of Porter and Frankee’s relationship, Georgia Cates makes it clear through their character development and interactions just how well they complement each other at work and in the bedroom, so while what’s between them remains a secret and has an expiration date, as the story progresses, it’s obvious that both Porter and Frankee wouldn’t mind what’s between them turning into something more. Despite Frankee’s inexperience with men, her and Porter’s sexual relationship, once it gets to that point, is a big part of their connection, and with Porter as her dirty talking, ‘magic mouth’ instructor, Frankee definitely lives up to her ‘porno princess’ nickname. Even though they do spend a lot of time having sex, they grow as a couple because they work well together on the advertising and marketing for Lovibond, and when Frankee helps Porter and his family work through a difficult situation with positivity and insightfulness. In Porter, Georgia Cates illustrates how a young girl’s crush turns into lust-filled interactions and then progresses into something that neither wants to give up, and while the knowledge of the forbidden/taboo aspect of Porter and Frankee’s relationship is always there, it’s easy to forgot just how much both of them are risking by sneaking around and stretching the truth because the bond that’s formed between them happens almost instantaneously and the desire and need they feel is unrelenting until they finally give into it. There’s a lot that Porter and Frankee have to contend with in the story, and, at times, I felt like there was too much happening around and to them, particularly due to a level of crazy that is absolutely beyond comprehension. That part of the story line, in my opinion, distracted readers and created more of a soap opera-like feel to a story that had more than enough drama already. Despite my issues with part of the plot, I liked Porter and Frankee’s story, and the way Cates brings all three Lovibond men and their women together at the end perfectly illustrates the camaraderie amongst them and indicates that the Lovibond family will continue to expand, not only in business but in their personal lives as well. 3.5 Poison Apples (The Fairest of All Book Reviews)

Porter Beckman the serial one-night-stand man who finally meets his match with a woman nearly ten years his junior, and not only that, his warehouse managers daughter. Georgia Cates brings a story of a childhood crush morphing into a woman’s reality in one seriously hot romance. Hotter, steamier and more intense than the previous books in this series but with a little added drama. Frankee is a twenty-one-year-old graduate of graphic design and goes to an interview at Lovibond as a summer intern before she begins her life nearly a thousand miles away with her friends. Going back to where she spent a lot of her childhood brings back a lot of memories and one that comes back with a flourish was just how much she loved Porter Beckman. Porter Beckman didn’t recognise Frankee at first, long gone is the sixteen-year-old girl he used to call “Kiddo” and instead the woman before him is all sex and channelling an inner vixen. Extremely talented, she is definitely the right person for the job but it seems that control is not Porters strong point and soon his hormones are running rife. “Sex and fun. That’s what we chose to call this. But this isn’t just sex. This isn’t us having a little fun… We were wrong. So very wrong. This is more.” The romance between Porter and Frankee is a little insta-love and definitely insta-lust. Knowing these two had history does make it easier to understand but given their age gap this is the first time that Porter has seen Frankee through testosterone fuelled eyes. Georgia Cates does bring a fair amount of drama to the path of true love and while the trope used has been done a lot, I still enjoyed the direction it took, it was highly entertaining. The family unit is strong throughout and I adored the Beckman family. The chemistry between Porter and Frankee was electric and Georgia Cates perfectly captured, as always, one intense, extremely hot and highly combustible connection. These two sizzled and burned up the pages. Fast paced and a pleasure to read, this was a great way to end the series and I am hoping that this will not be the last we see of the Lovibond men. www.theromancecover.com

    PORTER is the third book in the Lovibond series but can be read as a complete standalone and is my first read from author Georgia Cates. This is a sexy, older man with younger woman/office/taboo sort of romance. The secret relationship between Porter and Frankee is intense and full of passionate and tantalizing sex scenes. Porter may look and sometimes talk like a tattooed bad boy but he's really a big teddy bear. Frankee is just nine years younger than him but seems pretty mature for her age pl PORTER is the third book in the Lovibond series but can be read as a complete standalone and is my first read from author Georgia Cates.

Frankee is just nine years younger than him but seems pretty mature for her age plus she's simply a sweet girl with a big heart. There's a lot going on in the storyline but it reads easily and smoothly. As far as the plot's concerned, I only wish there was more of a conclusion about the "crazy" problem towards the end. I won't say any more than that so I don't spoil anything! And although I liked Porter and Frankee's characters, it seemed the dialogue was a bit stiff and forced at times. It was hard to feel a real connection with them because the way they talked felt a little fake. Overall, this was a sweet and sexy contemporary romance, four stars for me! Told from dual POVs with a super happy end. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Georgia Cates finished this series with a story that had great sexual tension, explosive chemistry, and swoon worthy heart. This entire series has such a memorable cast of characters, and she paces the stories perfectly. Porter, along with Tap and Stout, are perfect examples of what I love about modern contemporary romance. It's a series that I will be re-visiting for years to come. Porter was a complete stand alone, told from dual POV. If you one-click and love this book, I highly recommend going back and reading Tap and Stout's books...you will not be disappointed!

    Porter is a standalone in the Men of Lovibond series and I read it as such, although I can't wait to dive into the previous two books I honestly think it read as a standalone...and I'm very choosy about what I consider a standalone. I loved Porter and Frankee's story, it had lots of different elements that weaved together to form their relationship and make it something special. I really liked that and felt the 'issues' raised in the book were handled sensitively and intelligently...obviously no Porter is a standalone in the Men of Lovibond series and I read it as such, although I can't wait to dive into the previous two books I honestly think it read as a standalone...and I'm very choosy about what I consider a standalone.

Charlotte was an interesting twist and I really liked how that came to be and that I really disliked her, from the get go. Seeing that play out was fun and frustrating in equal measure. Did I mention this book is hot? As in, steaming. The sex scenes will have you hot under the collar in no time.

    I really enjoyed the first two books in the Lovibond series it's so sad to see it got but it was a beautiful ending , I'd suggest that you read them before you start Porter . Liked how Frankee and Porter's relationship progressed they have to be one of the steamiest couple in this series . The only thing I didn't like was it being rushed the issue felt glazed over . Over all this was a great book Georgia Cates is amazing and I can't wait to read more by her .

    I enjoyed this book and the series. Porter is definitely my favorite of the three! Frankee has had a crush on Porter since she was sixteen and now he is her boss. Porter doesn't recognize Frankee when she interviews for the intern job but is definitely attracted to her. They last maybe two weeks before they give in to their attraction. They are totally made for each other but their relationship is tested right out of the gate. There is a bit of drama/angst, sizzling chemistry, and a sweet HEA. I enjoyed this book and the series.
