Release Day Review: 10 Signs You Need to Grovel Kelly Siskind

Series: Bower Boys #2

A grumpy bartender learns he’s a dad in Kelly Siskind’s latest Bower Boys romance full of second chances, small-town charm, and steamy, slow-burn heat.

For the last ten years, I’ve been living a lie in witness protection. But the drug cartel that put me there isn’t a threat anymore, so I can have my life back. I should be thrilled, right?


The last thing I want to do is go back home and show everyone how far I’ve fallen. I’m not the high-powered lawyer they all expect me to be. I’m just a guy who slings drinks and scowls at the world.

But then I hear about Max, my ex’s ten-year-old son. My ten-year-old son.

I have to go back now. Figure out how to be a dad. Face the love of my life. Make things right with Sadie and earn her trust. Will she have me—or is it too late to reinvent myself as the man she once loved?

This is the first book I read by Kelly Siskind, and the reason I picked it up was that it contained two of my favorite tropes: second-chance and single parent. I thought this book was okay but I just didn't love the single POV told by Desmond (Des), the main male character. It just made it difficult for me to connect to Sadie, the main female character. I think I would've enjoyed this book so much more if it was dual POV. I did think Des' and his son Max's interaction was amazing. It is obvious that Des is a great guy who has been dealt a very bad hand.  

I also loved Des' plan to get to know his son better by leading an outdoor program. There was a twelve-year-old girl named Olivia who joined the hiking program, and I really loved her character. She annoyed and always had the upper hand with Des which was a very nice addition to the story. I didn't love the romance part of the story, mainly because I didn't know what was on Sadie's mind. I also didn't think the title matched the story but overall I thought this was a light and fun contemporary romance. Also, the interaction between Des and his family was great!


Author of romantic comedies and contemporary romance, Kelly moved from the city to enjoy the charm of northern Ontario. When she’s not out hiking or home devouring books, you can find her, notepad in hand, scribbling down one of the many plot bunnies bouncing around in her head.


Her novels have been published internationally.
