He quit believing in love a long time ago. She won’t quit until she finds the One…
and he’s everything she’s NOT looking for.

Holly Greene is on a mission to find her happily ever after. And her journey to love does not include a detour to Bad Boy Bartenderville, population Jax Grainger.

Jax may be witty, smart-mouthed, and handsome, but he’s the kind of guy who views love as a four-letter word… and the last thing Holly needs is to waste any more time.

She’s in her seeking Prince Charming era, not her playboy villain era.

But after he saves her from the world’s worst date, Holly sees an opportunity: Jax may not check any of the boxes on her list, but he’s the perfect person to help her find a man who does.

All she has to do is stick to the plan-and stay out of the sexy bartender’s arms.

Easy peasy lemon sque… Oops.


Book Review

Thank you to Wordsmith Publicity for the ARC of The Quit List by Katie Bailey. All opinions are my own.

After reading Season’s Schemings recently, I immediately wanted to read this book. It features the brother of the main character in that book, and I was so excited to be back in that world.



While this is set in the same world, this story is very different from Season’s Schemings. The setting and the main characters are unique, but there are still scenes with the characters from that story.

I loved how this story was told through dual points of view because I feel like I understood each of the characters better.

Jax was such a charming main character. I loved how much he made Holly squirm by how confident and bold he could be.

Holly was a fun character, and I enjoyed seeing how much she grew as a person. Her interactions with Jax were so funny, and I absolutely loved their friendship.

There were so many memorable scenes in this story that made me smile or laugh out loud.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I would recommend this book if you like closed door romances with sizzling chemistry and fun adventures.
