    Wonderful story about a vulnerable guy and the group of friends who take him in. A few typos and misuses of compound words (see notes).

    I am lucky enough to be a beta/Arc reader for this author, This book is very well written. I was loved the story of Stevie and Mack from the very beginning. Stevie especially pulled at my heart strings. These two have to overcome past hurts and get away from people trying to pull them back into their pasts in order to find their happily ever after.Sorry no spoilers from me so I highly recommend you check their story out for yourself.An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

    This is a beautiful story about Stevie who's been living on the streets for a year. Its tough for him and he's struggling with life. Finding food and staying safe are his properties but it doesn't always workout. Stevie's scoping out a busy cafe with yummy pastries he hasn't eaten in a long while. But he gets caught and goes into a melt down. Mack was the one to grab him and yells for the cops to be brought in. Bernie hears the ruckus and investigates to back to see a poor tattered lad.Instead of calling the police Bernie offers a place to stay and a job in the cafe which Mack does not like. Stevie is a frightened mouse around big Mack. Mack forgets he's been in the same position and is reminded by his Uncle Bernie to forgive.. There's a story behind Stevie that will break your heart and we learn a bit more about Bernie too. I loved Stevie and Mack's story..

    This book tore me up and I loved it!Stevie & Mack is the second book in the Barista Boys series but can be read as a standalone with no problem. While I really enjoyed Danny & Jude, book 1 in the series, Stevie and Mack ripped my heart out and then put it back together again.Please read the book blurb; it says what the book is about so much better than I can. I can tell you what this book did to me, though. I love books that hit me hard emotionally and boy did this one. I’m not sure I’ve ever shed tears so fast in any other book. Chapter one and two nearly gutted me.Stevie is desperate, more desperate than anyone could ever know. He’s not a thief and yet now he is. When Mack catches him stealing baked good from the Barista Boys café he figures it’s the end. Mack is incensed that someone would dare to steal from his uncle’s café and he wants to see Stevie punished. Fortunately for Stevie, Mack’s uncle, Bernie, is more forgiving.Stevie & Mack is one of the most heart wrenching stories I’ve read in a while. Both of these characters have a lot of baggage and things to work through before they get to their HEA but it was absolutely a pleasure to take the journey with them even though I hurt for them so much at time.There is a wonderful, secondary plot within this story that’s about Bernie. While I kind of guessed what was going on I didn’t guess it all and Bernie’s story added so much to Stevie and Mack’s story.I don’t know if there are more books planned for this series but I’d love for Bernie to get an HEA. Please, Ms. Ryecart? An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

    “It hurts so much because you more than care. It hurts because you’re falling in love.”This book burrowed its way under my skin and straight into my heart, tangled itself up there and refused to let go. From the very first page, I was completely absorbed by Stevie, his vulnerability struck me in a way that I wasn’t quite prepared for. With a volatile first encounter setting Mack and Stevie at odds, I was completely charmed by the chemistry between them as they slowly warmed up to each other, sneaking smiles and learning that they have so much more in common that it first appeared. Both men flourish under each other’s attention, there is something so pure and beautiful that grows between them that it felt like a fresh start for these troubled souls. I loved how Stevie’s confidence slowly blossomed as he was absorbed into the Barista Boys family, and it broke my heart when it wasn’t quite enough to make him feel like he had a safe place to turn when his past catches up with him. I literally felt my stomach clench into a knot and had to brace myself for what I was scared was coming when Kai made himself known. Stevie’s susceptibility and how utterly defeated he was were difficult for me to read, and I found myself chanting in my head for Bernie to ‘just please save him one more time’. Which leads me to the enigmatic owner of the café, who snagged my attention in Danny & Jude and who now has my undivided attention. There is something about Bernie that has me absolutely fascinated, and I need the rest of his story. Loved. This.Please note that I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

    This was a fantastic read. Stevie is such a sweet damaged boy who deserves a chance in life. We see him at the start of the book fresh from the streets trying to steal food. He's dirty, smelly and at the end of his luck. But that's not all with him further into the book you find out why he's on the streets and what he's had to do to survive The there is Mack. Who seems to hate Stevie. Mack is Bernies nephew and has had a hard time too having had difficulties with his stepfather.Things develop between the MCs and a relationship forms. Stevie eventually opens up about his life and its heart breaking what he has gone through. And still going through. This is the second book in the series it can be read as a stand a lone but I would recommend reading them in order. I really enjoyed that you got to know more of Bernies story that is what i wanted after reading the first book. It's as heart breaking as Stevies. The writing was good and flowed really well. There was no point in the book where it dragged at all. It was well paced. You could feel the pain of the characters as you read the book. I'm loving this series.

    Stevie and Mack is the second in the Barista Boys series, but it can most definitely be read as a stand-alone. I absolutely loved this book. The best AE Ryecart book to date. Stevie comes into Mack’s life with quite an impact. Mack initially dislikes Stevie but they are put to work together and resolve their differences. Stevie’s vulnerability and story to date made my heart ache. I wanted him to find comfort, love, family and a home and couldn’t put the book down until he found happiness. Mack is a troubled character; he also has a life story which dictated the way he initially reacted to Stevie. Their developing relationship and discovery of each other is wonderful. The emotions are heartfelt and it is written with a lot of depth. The interaction with the secondary characters brings the story to life; learning more about Bernie along the way. It is easy to connect with the characters and the story is well executed and paced well. Stevie and Mack’s story was packaged up nicely and left me satisfied. Highly recommended.ARC received at no cost from the author.

    Give me not one but two MC's that are broken, you know it's going to be a great read. Throw in more drama & angst weaved just right then the author is holding the reader in the palm of their hand. And yes this story does just that.We have street kid, Stevie, just trying to survive until Bernie gives him a place to stay. Then there's Mack, who is Bernie's nephew, who seems to not trust this street kid but the more time spent in each other's company a relationship begins to bloom.But all is not as it seems, when the past comes back to take Stevie with it. Can this two survive this development or will their relationship fall and crumble?Not telling, you need to get this one for yourself. This is a standalone but should be read in order, there are interconnected characters thru out that make appearances and you'll meet future characters that will get their own story told (hopefully)ARC received for a voluntary review.

    Final update: This started off okay and then everything went to shit. Mack annoyed the living daylights out of me and I didn't think he deserved either Stevie as a boyfriend, or Bernie as an uncle!!I'd like to follow up on Bernie's story if one is ever written, but THIS book annoyed me. Nope, didn't work for me at all :-/!!Revision: Okay so 'fluffy and sweet' is way off on this one, but it's certainly good so far. *****Will give this a try - I want something fluffy and sweet before moving on to bigger books :-)! Will KU this.

    I loved this book. The author writes emotional characters, all the characters. You feel them as if they were real. These two lost souls found each other and they have challenges. I didn't realized there was a book 1. This was sitting in my Kindle so I read it. Now, I'm going to read book 1 and take a look at the author's other book. The first chapter was so compelling that I cried. So sad. This book shows you that when things look so bleak, there is a rainbow coming. Hope and love. I recommend this book.

    You know... I was pleasantly surprised. I cannot decide if it's 3 or 4 stars but because it's KU & I typically have really low expectations I'm going with 4. I thought it was an excellent story if not a bit too love conquers all for my taste but... I'm going to go back and read the first in the series so that says a lot.
