Book Review: Knit Tight (Portland Heat #4) by Annabeth Albert

One of Portland’s hottest young baristas, Brady is famous for his java-topping flair, turning a regular cup of joe into a work of art. Every Wednesday—aka “Knit Night”—hordes of women and their needles descend on the coffeehouse, and Brady’s feeling the heat. Into the fray walks a tall, dark, and distractingly handsome stranger from New York. His name is Evren, and he’s the sexy nephew of Brady’s sweetest customer, the owner of the yarn shop down the street. He’s also got a killer smile, confident air, and masculine charm that’s tying Brady’s stomach in knots. The smitten barista can’t wait to see him at the next week’s gathering. But when he tries to ask Evren out, his plans unravel faster than an unfinished edge. If Brady hopes to warm up more than Evren’s coffee, he’ll have to find a way to untangle their feelings, get out of the friend zone, and form a close-knit bond that’s bound to last a lifetime…

I had a tough time with this book. I loved Brady's character! He seemed like a good guy and a person I would enjoy hanging out with. Evren, however, was narrow-minded, uncompromising, uptight and a bigot. I could not understand why someone like Brady would even entertain the thought of dating Evren. Not only did Evren have unconventional kinks and aversions to pretty normal things, he also had a very bigoted view of bisexuality. I understand he'd been hurt in the past, but his sweeping generalizations and inability to see others' points of view was troubling. Because of that, it was difficult for me to believe that these two men were in love and that their love would last.

An ARC of this book was provided by the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
