**I received an ARC copy for my review**
If you read the Happy Spinster and found the story hot and steamy than you are in for a treat with The Barmaid, this story is even hotter.
You will get to know Annie, a beautiful Montreal barmaid who catches her long time boyfriend with another woman; she doesn't wait to kick him out of her house. Immediately her handsome co-worker is coming to the rescue to help her change the locks. Annie knows that Ray feels more for her, but he doesn't want to be the re-bound guy.
But when she goes out on a Girl's Night Out she ends with the hot Gilles and what started as an innocent flirt turns into a great hot sexy climax in a booth at a cafe. After all Gilles leaves for the country for a while so why not enjoy each other for the night.
Will she ever see him back after this amazing night of HOT SEXY PASSION?
Great story, easy written an addictive to read can’t wait for the next book

Ok first the book was pretty hot, second what I loved the most is Annie. I am loved her character because she didn't close herself off after Rick screwed around on her. The thing I hated was Ray, such a sweet hot guy, I mean obviously Annie fell in love with Gilles but I think it could have been just as hot with Ray.

After reading Karena Marie's first book, The Happy Spinster, I was encouraged to read The Barmaid. Once again, her characters are believable and there is a story to tell as we follow along on the emotional journey of Annie. In my opinion, a good book will encourage us to have some empathy for the main character and The Barmaid does this as we experience Annie's lows and highs while she moves from a bad relationship to something much better.
The erotica is definitely explicit, but well written. Readers of this genre will enjoy the writing style and descriptive qualities of this writer. I am far from an expert in this genre but I am quite sure that Karena Marie has to be among the best.
I would highly recommend The Barmaid to readers of this genre.

I was introduced to the erotica genre through Karena Marie’s “The Happy Spinster,” a very engaging and of course, erotic book that was recommended to me (although I am not a regular reader of the genre.) Thanks to that excellent read, I was intrigued to check out her next offering in the series, ‘The Barmaid.”
Once again set in Montreal, it introduces us to Annie, the title character who finds herself single after discovering her long time boyfriend with another woman. Unlike the heroine of Marie’s previous story however, Annie is someone who is suddenly thrust into the single life and is not so confident and is filled with doubts about what lies ahead of her.
Since it is erotica, the book is very explicit as it follows Annie’s night out with her friends. Once again, the author shows an exceptionally keen hand as the sex, while necessary to the plot, never seems gratuitous. The situations are genuine and the character of Annie, while certainly alluring, is very interesting and thoroughly believable.
Karena Marie is an extraordinary writer. She is very skilled at telling this kind of story and I think she is one to watch in the future. “The Barmaid” is a great erotic read – for fans of the genre, I certainly encourage anyone to check it out. Highly recommended!
