Review ~ The Hustler Next Door by K.A. Tucker

The Hustler Next Door (Polson Falls, #2)The Hustler Next Door by K.A. Tucker
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book! The banter between Justine and Garrett was so much fun. There was definitely an intense connection between them, despite Garrett’s business dealings and Justine’s passion to standup for the small town she recently moved to. My heart ached for Justine, considering how she was treated by her ex, and how close his family still was to hers. It made it hard for her to move on and find her own way.

The more time she spent with Garrett seemed to ease those feelings. They managed to put aside their rivalry when their two worlds collided in a big way. Garrett realised how badly she had been hurt and did everything to make things easier for her. I could see the shift in Garrett too, and how he was changing to keep the town on his good side. I just loved how Justine didn’t refrain for voicing her opinions.

I think I would’ve liked a little more things fleshed out - I really wanted to know how the green dress went down. But other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed this read. I honestly didn’t want it to end. Tucker seems to have this amazing way of creating worlds and characters that I can get lost in!

Title: The Hustler Next Door
Author: K.A. Tucker
Series: Polson Falls #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: January 3, 2023

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 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. Books in this series can be read in any order.
