Booklover by J.E. Birk


Release Date: 03.29.2021


Jamie Morin’s college GPA drops every time a cow breaks through a fence, but he’s determined to get his degree and keep his parents’ Vermont dairy farm afloat. He’d rather be reading than milking, but he can’t let his family down…not the way his brother did. So the last thing he needs is distraction in the form of an irresistible bookseller with a mysterious backstory.

Briar Nord has a lifetime of experience proving that happily-ever-afters only happen in his favorite books. But his luck might be changing. He’s got a great job at a bookstore, and he lives in a city that puts maple syrup on everything. But Briar knows not to trust anything--or anyone--too closely, and that includes a gorgeous farm boy with soulful eyes and too many obligations. 

When Jamie joins Briar’s romance novel book club, they both feel an instant connection and soon they’re turning pages long into the night. But Briar’s past was bound to catch up with him. Sometimes, though, it takes two heroes to write a new ending . . .


Booklover is the perfect story for book lovers. 

I share the same love for Romance books as the main characters, and even if I didn’t have a troubled past or a messy life like them, I also escape into stories with a sure happy ending to forget real life for a few hours.

Briar came to Burlington for a new start, his old life put him in danger and he made some bad decisions with his old friends. Now he is the new clerck at Vino and Veritas bookstore and he can forget about his past. Jamie is a student, a part time librarian and a dairy farmer whenever his family needs some help. He also loves to read Romance books so he decides to sign up for V and V Book Club and here he meets Briar who looks a lot alike a famous book’s character. They are instantly attracted to each other but are they willing to complicate their lives beginning a love relationship?

I’ve enjoyed this story. The author put together some pretty heavy topics and some funny moments, enriching it with some vivid depictions of Vermount landscape and its delicious food. 

I liked the main characters, I grew attached to them as they were introduced. 

Briar has been through a lot during his life and he has seen this new begin as his chance to be serene and to find some peace even if he thinks he doesn’t deserve it. Jamie has had a happy life but nowadays he feels under pressure with his many different commitments.

I adored their differences and their common love for books, I think they are the right person for each other, and in the end I was ready to fight them if they didn’t get their happy ending.

I absolutely recommend to read this story.
