Release Blitz + 2018 Favorite and 5+ Star Review: Speakeasy by Sarina Bowen – True North Series – Book 5


By Sarina Bowen

True North Series – Book 5

Release Date – May 29, 2018








Sometimes you fall for Mr. Right. And sometimes for Mr. Right Now…


Did you hear the one about the girl who walks into a bar and catches her live-in lover kissing someone else? No? You’re the only one in town who missed it.

Luckily Alec is there to wrap me up in strong arms and carry me out the door before things get too ugly. And that’s not all Alec is good at. Our unexpected chemistry makes him the perfect rebound guy.


I should know better than to hook up with my rival’s little sister, but the fiery look in May’s eyes really turns my crank. She needs cheering up, and I’m just the guy for the job.

It’s not like I’ll fall in love. Not even after a string of scorching hot trysts, and the realization that we’re good at the same things: wild nights and familial disappointment. I don’t do love, never have, never will. So this is the perfect arrangement, for both of us.

Nobody would approve, but nobody has to know…






Michel’s Review

As an avid fan of Sarina Bowen and the True North series, I was thrilled when she announced the upcoming release of Speakeasy, the fifth book in the series. When I saw the book was May Shipley’s book, I was a bit intrigued because I love the entire Shipley clan. What I envisioned or anticipated was not what came to play. Sarina Bowen completely surprised the readers with a different path for May. Even though it was completely unexpected path, it was perfect. What I enjoyed most was getting to know May as an individual rather than her designated family role. It amazed me how strong May was emotionally, morally, and independently. Although she had many flaws and weaknesses , she embraced them to make them a part of her strength.

And then there is Alec. SWOON! I was surprised by this man who has been in the background of every True North book. The overall impressions were nothing like the man behind the bar. When Alec steps out of the background, the spotlight forgets every other character except the one Alec sees.

Sarina Bowen outdid herself! I loved Speakeasy and I think it may be my favorite book in the series.
