It’s Monday! What are you Reading?
This week I read “Behind the Bar” by PC Zick.
The first thing that came to mind while reading this story was the movie “The Breakfast Club” –except ten years later. The relationships are intricate and sometimes painful as there tends to be a lot of psychological baggage carried from teenage years into adulthood, especially when done in a group like these characters. Sometimes one must forgive and forget to move on, but in the case of Susie Williams, one must remember in the first place. Susie is a young woman who has blocked out a majority of her abusive childhood, until her friends help her piece the puzzle back together.
I absolutely loved these characters, especially Sally Jean, and the final conversation between Susie and Sally Jean literally brought tears to my eyes.
“Behind the Bar” is the second book in the “Behind the Love Trilogy.” If you start with this book, you’ll find the first few chapters move pretty fast, and you’ll have to figure out who everyone is, which I’m sure is explained in more detail in the first book. That being said, you can start with this book and catch up quickly, not feeling as if you’ve missed anything because this is a stand-alone story. I guarantee you will love this group of misfits and find yourself going back to the first in the series “Behind the Altar.” The third in the series, “Behind the Curtain,” will be released soon, and I can’t wait!
For those sensitive to adult language and situations, there is a little bit in this book, but not enough to curl your hair.
Check it out at Amazon!

So happy you enjoyed Behind the Bar. I certainly loved getting to know these folks myself and can’t wait to start writing #3.
Well, hurry up! I can’t wait to read it. With those characters, you may have more than one book to write. They’re all strong personalities with their own stories to tell. I loved it!
Everyone says they want Sally Jean to have her own book. I’ll have to see about that. I certainly made her more sympathetic in the second book.
Ooh I’m liking that idea! Behind the Bra! LOL
Oh my – that’s absolutely perfect.
Reblogged this on P.C. Zick.
Great review for a great book! 🙂
Seriously, I loved all the characters!
So looking forward to reading this!
It’s really good!
