Stacey is tired of everyone around her moving on with their lives while she’s stuck in her hometown living in an apartment attached to her parents’ house. It was fine when she was sticking around to help care for her sick mother, but now that her best friend is getting married, Stacey is feeling a little stuck. A drunk message to her former summertime kilt wearing fling turns into a romance of the digital age. But as time goes on, Stacey starts to think that the person she’s been messaging for the better part of a year can’t possibly be the emotionally unavailable Dex MacLean, but could be someone very close to him.
Huzzah! What a fun and flirty follow-up to Well Met. While this one didn’t slap quite as hard for me, I loved how the premise was a bit different and several parts of Stacey’s personality really resonated with me. It was so refreshing to read a character who is equal parts confident and self-conscious; someone who is known for their fun and approachable personality but who also has their own shit to work though. Just like in Well Met, the steam kind of came out of nowhere in the best possible way and I really loved the way Daniel & Stacey’s story played out. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a sudden urge to eat a turkey leg and chug a tankard of mead.
