Book Review: Served Hot (Portland Heat #1) by Annabeth Albert

*** This review is SPOILER-FREE! Read on with confidence! ***

Served Hot is a cozy read about two men who meet and dance a slow, heartwarming romance over coffee. The story is told from Robbie’s POV in first person, which really showcases his adorable personality and geeky Portland ways. David is very “accountant”, with his starched shirts and awkward segues, and harbors a painful, emotionally debilitating past.
