Pour Me Another

   (2 reviews)

***Winner of the 2013 Readers Choice Awards for the Best Story by a Promising Author *** :D The city is full of all kinds of people. Being a bartender, Asher Burkhart has seen them all. Atleast he thinks has until Michael Waters shows up.

I'm definitely curious. I want moooooore! :P Michael must have some major issues going on to be getting pass-out drunk again so soon. I wonder what he wanted when he stopped by the bar.... Guess I'll have to wait to find out :)

Michael has problems. We will get to see so much more of him in near future (OMG- get your mind out of the gutter! :P Not in that way, LOL) His character will be developing in leaps and bounds. Hope you check out chapter 3 next week. Thanks for leaving a review :)

I will definitely stop by here on Mondays for updates ;)

 

Thank you :D

I hope the new chapters don't disappoint. I'm working really hard on this story. I think it might be the best I've written. I look forward to hearing what you think about future updates. :) KC

Good story, KC, with your signature style of adventure and romance. I liked the fast pace and the real life challenges they faced both individually and as a couple.

Honestly, Michael never grew on me. He started out a falling down drunk in the bar and progressed to a verbal attack when verbally harassed by a stranger. Later in the story he physically assaults a friend of Asher's who verbally harasses him (in jest.) Okay, yeah, the coming out process is tough, especially to oneself, but that wasn't enough to make Michael an appealing character to me. He showed some emotional growth in the end but as a reader I didn't get to experience that with him so there wasn't a payoff for me.

I liked the courtroom scenes in the final chapters. Really well written action with a lot of detail. I thought Asher's coming to terms with being shot was very well handled and some of the best parts of the story. His reluctance to deal with the police and grudging acceptance that he had to be an active part of the process in order to ensure prosecution and conviction were very believable, as were his struggles with flashbacks and nightmares.

Always appreciate the dedication you give to your stories, KC, and looking forward to whatever is next from you.

Wow! I can't believe it's been so long since I've worked on this story. Michael is very flawed. I wanted him to feel real and real people have lots of demons that they are dealing with and some don't do it as eloquently. Even at a few points I wanted to slap him myself. LOL :lol:

 

I was really worried about the courtroom scene since that is something totally new to me. I'm glad you liked it. I'm working on a few things right now, but it's been going slow. Thanks so much for reading and letting me know what you think ;) KC

I read your story over three evenings and enjoyed it very much. I liked the fact that both characters felt like actual people and did some stupid things on their way towards marriage. Seeing them stumble, fall but pull things together made it more believable. Some unexpected turns kept it interesting and not "just" a love story.
So thanks for sharing!
