cop. A splash of sweet, that’s me. One sour, that’s him… and serve over ice.
That’s how you’ll get to my current situation.
You know the girl – the one who commands the scene, bottle of liquor in hand,
pouring liquid fire into the willing throats of patrons as they let loose at
the local bar?
I may be known as the town party girl, but in reality I’m this close to
my dream of opening my own bar – McConaugheys. Yes, it will be named after the
acclaimed actor. What can I say? I’m a sucker for that sexy Texan.
Everything was going as planned until the night I had a few drinks and accepted
a ride home from a friend. A misunderstanding leads to an arrest, and now I’m
at the mercy of the one man I can’t stand, and trust me, the feeling is
Adam Reingold is six-feet-tall and built like a stallion — the man is the
epitome of male. He also happens to be the town narc and hates my guts. There’s
a story to our past and it’s not a pretty one.
So, now, here I am, chained to him for the summer like a hardened criminal,
doing whatever he tells me to do. Problem is, I can’t help but look at him when
he’s not watching and wonder what our future could be like if things were
There are so many reasons why he’s all wrong for me. Even more reasons why I
need to stay away from him.
It’s a cocktail of trouble. Best served
shaken, not stirred.
This is my first book by this author and it won’t be my last. I was pulled in by the description and loved the forbidden romance aspect that the description makes you feel it’s going to be.
Adam was a jerk for a great chunk of this book, but I was able to understand and relate to him. He deals with things a different way and while it was hard to read, I loved seeing his true nature come out slowly. He may have been an officer, but he let Leah corrupt him.
I love Leah’s look on life! She was easy going from the start and as the book moved forward we see different sides to her. She wants to prove that she isn’t what other people think she is and I loved her so much!
The plot is complicated. Well I find it being a romcom in a way it has a lot deeper subject matter to it. The heroin is Boyfriend dies, and he was also the heroes best friend, and there’s a lot that goes into that aspect of the book. It makes it forbidden and I loved it.
I would have liked to have been in Adams head. He was so deep and while we learn why he is the way he is, I wanted to really feel his coldness, and see him slowly really see Leah.
Overall, I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to see what else the author has written. This book gave me tears, made me laugh, and the steam factor was perfect. I loved the secondary characters and plan to follow this author to wait for her next releases. 4 stars #2OCCJD
