Better late than never.

It’s the phrase on the tip of everyone’s tongues. For three years, every staff member and regular at Taverne Toulouse has watched Zach and DeeDee edge their way closer to the grand finale of a ‘will they, won’t they’ dance that feels like it’s lasted for decades.

Bets have been placed. Wagers have been drawn. The whole of Montreal’s most famous dive bar is holding its breath. Will the small town boy with a heart of gold finally make a move on the wild, pink-haired bartender he’s been in love with for years, or will the moment pass them by and leave Zach and DeeDee insisting they’re ‘just friends’ yet again?

A rowdy night at the bar gets served with a twist that sends DeeDee spinning—not into Zach’s arms, but straight into his living room. With his dream girl crashing on his couch for a few weeks and brightening his days with spontaneous dance parties and eventful forays into the art of hair dyeing, Zach’s feelings only get stronger, and DeeDee’s follow right behind.

He calms her storms, and she streaks his skies with lightning. They fill each other’s gaps with a symmetry neither of them can ignore, but every step closer only raises the stakes of losing it all.

Late or never. A choice three years in the making. Their final shot to get it right.

One for the Road is part of the Barflies series, a set of standalone romantic comedies that chronicle the lives and loves of the staff at a Montreal dive bar.

My Review

Katia gets me every freakin’ time!! Every time I read one of her books I think it is my favorite until I read the next. She has such a beautiful way with words and has developed these characters in such a way that we truly get to live in their lives. I was super curious about DeeDee and Zack, and I was so excited they were finally getting their own book. I would never in a million years have guessed that Didi was the person that she was behind closed doors.

Katia has the best ability to write about some truly horrific situations and bring them to light in such a beautiful way. She truly helps you feel like you are not alone in the world in the best way possible. Everyone has their own insecurities and I think so many of us could relate to DeeDee and Zach in this book. I know I definitely did.

These two were explosive. From the moment we see them in the freezer I knew this book was going to be spicy. I loved every second of them together, and I wanted to cry every second that they were apart. They had a storybook type romance, and their insecurities really got in the way. I was really frustrated for both characters, but at the same time I could totally relate and completely understood. I truly got everything I wanted from them, and so much more.

In true Katia style, I was super excited to get to see the entire crew in this book. I loved getting to see more of Renee, Dylan, Monroe, and Roxanne. I especially loved the little tidbit of Cole and his insight on relationships. This book was super special and I cannot wait to see what she brings us next.

About the author:



Katia Rose is not much of a Pina Colada person, but she does like getting caught in the rain. She prefers her romance served steamy with a side of smart and is a sucker for quirky characters. A habit of jetting off to distant countries means she’s rarely in one place for very long, but she calls the frigid northland that is Canada home.
