    1. ~4.5~Daily Grind, which can be read as a standalone, is one emotional, sexy ride. Rob walks into Brian's coffee shop and ZING. It's not love at first sight, not quite, but Rob and Brian have an instant connection. Rob is the CEO of a robotics company where Todd (one of the MCs from book 3) works. He's British (and a ginger!) but has made Pittsburgh his home. Brian owns a coffee shop, Grounds N'at. He's flirty and makes a special coffee concoction, strong and sweet with a bite of spice, just for [...]


    2. Well! What do we have here?Delectable GingerDelicious, dirty-talking foreplay:He stepped close and whispered into Brian’s ear, “After our next date, I’m going to find out what the rest of you tastes like.”Delightful romance:He met Rob’s gaze. “You walked into my shop and brought the freaking sun with you. I’ve been blinded since.”Decadent, dirty-talking, melt-the-paint-off-the-walls sex:He pushed in deep. “Right now, you have one job.” He leaned down as close to Brian’s hea [...]


    3. “You walked into my shop and brought the freaking sun with you. I’ve been blinded since.”What happens when you have always known you were bisexual, but never let yourself explore your sexuality? Brian Keppler, owner of Ground N'At, the coffee shop beneath SR Anderson Consulting, finds out when he meets, sexy ginger Robert Ancroft. Anna Zabo has written another hot as hell story where two men are drawn to each other, and make no apologies for their desires. CEO Rob Ancroft wants to find som [...]


    4. Daily grind might just be my favorite book in the Takeover series (who am I kidding, it is my favorite). It was spot on regarding just how owing one's own food service business can grind you up and spit you out. And having literally grown up in the food service industry, and watched my parents' marriage disintegrate when they owned a restaurant when I was a kid (though the restaurant was only one of their many problems), I could seriously relate to Brian and his dilemmas. There are so many thing [...]



    5. This was a very nice surprise. I haven't read the other books in this series, so I had no idea what to expect. Thankfully this book didn't dissapoint.Brian is the owner of Ground N'At, a coffeeshop located beneath SR Anderson Consulting. He is a very hard and dedicated worker.a bit too hard one might say.Rob is the CEO of a robotics company. And for those who are into Gingers.you lucked out with Rob. They have instant chemistry when they meet.Brian has always known he was bi, he just never act [...]


    6. ETA 12/24/2016: ARC is up for request on NetGalley! Happy Holidays! s2galley/catalog/bookETA 10/24/2016: The release date for Daily Grind is being pushed back to Feb 21, 2017. There was a bit of a snafu with getting edits back to medwell, we want to make sure the book is the best it can be, so we're not rushing it. I suspect it'll update on GR once it updates on . Sorry about the delay, but again, I want to give you the best book I can.I've talked about my Bi-For-You book for about a year, and t [...]


    7. "I want to make the world right for you."Daily Grind is Anna Zabo's "bi-for-you" addition to the Takeover series. I absolutely loved Just Business, but this one is definitely my favorite so far, for entirely different reasons:-Great bisexual representation. I said that in a way it's a "bi-for-you" story but it's not only that. Brian acknowledges that he has always felt an attraction towards men, but didn't do anything about it, until a hot, ginger, Britich CEO entered his coffee shop."He 'd had [...]


    8. The opposite of doormat behavior! How much Rob stood up for himself with Brian's fuck up had me just as hot as the many, many, hot, hot smexy times. Loved this!4.5 stars!


    9. A great addition to the takeover series – can be read as a standalone.Mature MCs, real life and daily issues I can relate to, characters great but with flaws,d dirty-talking, yeah !!Brian is the owner of a coffee shop and, even though he puts a lot of time and efforts into it, struggles to make it work. He’s a workaholic to the point he forgets about his hobbies and lost his girlfriend. However, it doesn’t prevent him to notice a new customer, the sexy and British Rob and to make some time [...]


    10. DNF @ 34% Guess I'm going to go ahead and call it quits on this one. It wasn't holding my attention and I haven't wanted to go back to it this week.Nothing really wrong with it but also nothing that really hooked me either. Not much seemed to happen and both MCs were in their own heads a lot. I don't know *shrugs* I just don't have it in me to keep going.


    11. Oh, dear. I didn't have the love affair everybody else had. Don't get me wrong- it was good- I just didn't love as much as everybody else. The story started off fantastic with Brian and Rob meeting while Rob was getting some coffee at Brian's shop Ground N'At. They had instant chemistry and their back and forth flirting was like a breath of fresh air. It made me realize how little I see it in romance lately. They start dating each other and feelings escalate quickly. Up until around 54% of this [...]


    12. I'm putting this on an indefinite pause.There's nothing particularly wrong, but I've picked it up and put it back down on 6 separate occasions. The story is sweet and sexy, but something is just not clicking for me here and it's just not really grabbing my attention. Perhaps the writing style is what's taking me a while to get used to?I guess I'll try again when I'm in the right mood but for now I'm pausing at the 40% mark.


    13. 3.5 starsCoffee enthusiasts will probably love this book. There’s coffee everywhere - the shop, Brian and Rob’s own love for coffee, and the numerous coffee-related puns and jokes. I thought it would get stale at a point, but I didn’t mind the coffee-mania.I had no trouble connecting with either Brian or Rob. Though it was clear from the beginning that Brian’s business troubles would lead to problems, he’s a genuinely likeable person who cares about his friends and customers.I really a [...]


    14. I loved this! I liked that the MC's in this one were older and it was wonderful to watch them sink into love. Brian has known he's bisexual but he's never wanted to do anything about it not out of fear of liking men but because at the time he figured it out there was a lot of judgment in both the gay and straight community in regards to bisexuality. And since he never met a man he was particularly attracted enough to, he never had a reason to come out. Until Rob. And Rob has had relationships be [...]


    15. 4 starsThis book was deliciously hawt. For once the characters are not in their twenties, as in too many mm books these days. The characters are 38 and 40, which is refreshing. They are and act as grown-ups. They have a past and they have real issues grown-ups have.Brian is the owner of a coffee shop and he's bi. He never had an issue accepting his bisexuality, but never thought he would pursue a relationship with a man. Enter Rob, hot, self-assured, ginger, British Rob. and all bets are off for [...]


    16. 4.5 Stars!Holy hotness! This book! From the very beginning of the story you just knew it was going to be a great read! The author takes two decidedly delicious men; one bi, one not, and the sparks fly right off the page.Intense connections and plenty of steamy hot scenes, that even include a some light bdsm, make this a book where you better plan to simply pull up the covers and don't come out until you are done. Sweaty, physical, and playful, these two have it all - well, Almost!I love everythi [...]


    17. Leigh's review:Just like everything else Anna Zabo has written, this story was so full of life and truth that it is hard to imagine that these characters are not flesh and blood. Her men are so real, her relationships so honest and her worlds so clear that it is impossible to believe that I won’t run into these people walking down the street.All of her past characters have intersected in the coffee shop below Sam’s office, and now we finally get a book on Brian, the owner of the store. As a [...]


    18. ***3 Stars***"My track record isn't good.""Neither is mine.""So we can fuck this up together.""Or make it work.""Let's try that."This is a bit of a difficult review to write. Did I love Rob and Brian? YES! Even when Brian was frustrating the crap out of me, I understood how much his shop meant to him and how much hard work goes into being a business owner. BUTabout 1/3 of the way through I started getting really bored. I'm all for a quiet bookoks that are relationship focused.but here, there's n [...]


    19. 4 stars – The fourth book of Anna Zabo’s Takeover series, Daily Grind, is my first exposure to the author’s writing, and it worked just fine as a standalone story. While I have one major and a handful of minor issues with the book, I loved the characters and appreciated the storyline enough to be able to rate this as a novel I can recommend, especially for those who like their romances with a lot of cozy, a good bit of heat, and without contrived drama.Grounds N’at, the small coffee shop [...]


    20. Warning! Contains steamy scenes, frothy fluff, two roasted until almost burnt (out) businessmen, one very hot British Ginger and all the ridiculous coffee-related puns you could possibly imagine.Daily Grind is the fourth book in the Takeover series, which centres around businessmen and their partners and features cameos from other characters but no prior knowledge is needed to enjoy this standalone story. Instead of the tech firm featured in the previous novels the action revolves around Grounds [...]


    21. This book is lovely. It has a high sweetness to angst ratio, which is just what I wanted this week. The characters are kind to one another and assume the best of one another, which made it a very happy and comfortable read. One of the MCs is bi, but hasn't ever had a relationship with another man before. Neither of the MCs are stressed about this--it's just a thing. It's really excellent bi representation, in my opinion. I definitely recommend it for anyone who needs a reminder that people can b [...]


    22. 4.5 Stars Wow. Runs around clapping! I found a great gifted new to me writer. Ana Zabo creates nuanced grown characters who I adore watching fall in love and then work to have a loving relationship. I have so many favorite things about this book. It gets all the details just so, This is a full world with lively and complex heroes.We get a romance that deals with what it means to grown up working class and with addicted parents and be successful, what it means to be bisexual in your late 30's thr [...]


    23. 4 starsIt's late so I won't be too wordy with this review, but if you're looking for something fairly low-angst with slightly older MC's (38 and 40), and with a sweet vibe, then you should definitely give this a shot. It's got a pretty great storyline, a bit of insta-love and features two likeable MCs.This book can easily be read as a standalone but it does have cameos from couples in past books and those guys interested me enough to want to go back and read their stories too.Recommended.


    24. 4.5 stars. Lovely <3 Very close to being a 5-star read for me. For a rare change, I don't feel like mentioning the stuff that was slightly less than perfect for me, because it feels like quibbling and I don't think it'll really bother anyone else. This book was really very good—I read it all in one go, I laughed, I cried, I loved both main characters. I loved Pittsburgh, which holds a dear space in my heart to begin with <3 So, yeah, if you need a good romantic read that's very sexy and [...]


    25. Edit for gender neutral pronouns. I might start drinking coffee.Anna Zabo can write one helluva book! I loved the first two (three not as much) and this one is just as excellent, even without the kink. Brian is the owner of the coffee shop where Justin worked in "Just Business". The shop is struggling a bit and Brian is still short handed and overworked. Then Rob walks in and Brian sets his previously unexplored bisexual side free. I will say here that there was a very strong emphasis on his bis [...]


    26. 4.5 star review by The Blogger Girls.Woohoo, this book put me back on track with the series. This one is about Brian, the coffee shop owner where the other guys all get their coffee and where Justin used to work before he left to work with Sam in the office.Brian is having a bit of a hard time with things at work. He has never been able to replace Justin, his best barista, and other employee issues having him working extremely long hours and trying to find ways to keep things working financially [...]


    27. Reviewed for From Top to Bottom Reviews.*An arc of this was provided by the publisher via netgalleyIf you like coffee, cute british redheads and excellent bi-rep then this is your book! That’s pretty much all you should need to decide to read Daily Grind. Though I guess it doesn’t make for a good review. ;)Let me start with the coffee then. Don’t read this book if you don’t have coffee anywhere close to you (if you’re a coffee kind of person, of course) because Anna Zabo will make you [...]


    28. Finally Brian's story! Loved him and Rob even though there were times I was tempted to drown Rob's Americano in his own fresh brewed coffee. Just saying ;)


    29. Do you know any love story which is so normal and so heard of, so wound up that you know it's just everything you've ever read and seen in movies (heterosexual, duh!) but still never as subtle and never as believable as this one? If you have, then please enlighten me, cos I just read one of the most Daily romances by one of the most veracious voices of characters. The writing is sublime yet contains that certain build up which keeps you tinkering and wondering (even if you know most of it) and d [...]
