Duplicity is the third book in the St. Fleur series by AJ Renee and I have been waiting to read the story about Jamie Lynn and Jesse. Duplicity is a contemporary romance and is a beautiful love story where one of the two main characters have let their past affect their future. As with the first two books AJ did not disappoint, it is just as captivating and engaging.
Jamie Lynn owns the pub in town and hired Jesse to work as a bartender. She knew she was in trouble when she first laid eyes on him and would be a mistake to hire him but hire him she did. Jamie Lynn is unable to let go of her past in which she believes everyone leaves her and because of this she doesn’t let anyone in, not even her friends.
Jesse is a man who had his future ripped away from him. In order to move on he needs to leave behind his past. When he applies for the job of a bartender in St. Fleur he hopes he can leave his past behind. When he meets Jamie Lynn he hopes she may be the answers he has been looking for. The attraction between the two is instant but Jesse has no idea what he may have done or why Jamie Lynn won’t take the next step with him.
Will Jamie Lynn finally let her guard down? Will she finally let Jessie in? Will Jessie finally find out the truth? Can Jessie get Jamie Lynn to change her mind? Will Jessie finally break down the walls?
This series and this book will make you laugh out loud at the situations and antics that these characters get up to. These Alpha men will have you heart breaking. The friendships that are family will have you believing you are a part of their world. I look forward to the next book in the series.
