synopsis 2.0

Better late than never.

It’s the phrase on the tip of everyone’s tongues. For three years, every staff member and regular at Taverne Toulouse has watched Zach and DeeDee edge their way closer to the grand finale of a ‘will they, won’t they’ dance that feels like it’s lasted for decades.

Bets have been placed. Wagers have been drawn. The whole of Montreal’s most famous dive bar is holding its breath. Will the small town boy with a heart of gold finally make a move on the wild, pink-haired bartender he’s been in love with for years, or will the moment pass them by and leave Zach and DeeDee insisting they’re ‘just friends’ yet again?

A rowdy night at the bar gets served with a twist that sends DeeDee spinning—not into Zach’s arms, but straight into his living room. With his dream girl crashing on his couch for a few weeks and brightening his days with spontaneous dance parties and eventful forays into the art of hair dyeing, Zach’s feelings only get stronger, and DeeDee’s follow right behind.

He calms her storms, and she streaks his skies with lightning. They fill each other’s gaps with a symmetry neither of them can ignore, but every step closer only raises the stakes of losing it all.

Late or never. A choice three years in the making. Their final shot to get it right.

One for the Road is part of the Barflies series, a set of standalone romantic comedies that chronicle the lives and loves of the staff at a Montreal dive bar.


One for the Road was the perfect book to finally bring together DeeDee and Zach. I’ve been waiting since book one to see about these two and Katia didn’t disappoint.

One for he Road’s storyline is achingly sweet but also a little hard on the heart. It’s refreshing to see the characters taking care of themselves and not overly obsessed with each other.

Katia also shows how the sweetest and brightest people also are hurting the most. I loved getting to see the real side of DeeDee even all the bad parts. Zach was wonderful of course and their connection was evident from the first page. It was chaotically sexy between these two and fun to read!

My rating: 4.5/ 5 Stars
