Welcome to Sultry Springs, Texas: where home can be the perfect place for a fresh start.
For West Coast filmmaker Bobbi Gallagher, going back to Sultry Springs is a last resort. But with her career in tatters, a quick trip to her hometown might get her the footage she needs to salvage her reputation. She just can't let anything distract her again. Not even the gorgeous contractor her brother asked to watch over her. As if she can't handle filming a few rowdy Texans.
Golden boy Trey Lewis, with his blond hair and Technicolor-blue eyes, is a leading man if Bobbi ever saw one. He's strong and confident and--much to her delight--usually shirtless. He thinks keeping his best friend's baby sister out of trouble will be easy. But he has no idea of the trouble in store for him.
I love discovering new authors that rock it out of the starting gate and blow my mind with their characters and fictional world. And Macy Beckett has done just that.
A Shot of Sultry is book two in Macy's adult debut series. (Click here for my review of Sultry with a Twist). Trey Lewis was introduced in the first book as a secondary character that easily won over my heart. He was sexy, funny-as-hell, and so needed his own HEA.
Bobbi Gallagher returns to her hometown of Sultry Springs, determined to repair her injured reputation as a documentary film maker. She is producing a new reality t.v. show--Sex in the Sticks. Not exactly award winning television, but she has to start somewhere.
Trey's mind is on leaving Sultry Springs and returning overseas for a military contract that will change his OTH discharge with the Army. His best friend and business partner, Logan Gallagher, has no clue that Trey has no intention of returning.
But things quickly change when Bobbi sets her sights on Trey and Colt (the town's sexy sheriff) as the two men to spotlight on Sex in the Sticks. Colt, bad-boy extraordinaire signs up ready, willing, and able--Trey is more or less coerced by Logan, so he can protect his baby sister from rowdy (er, horny) cowboys intent on getting their groove on with Bobbie. Logan is aware of Trey's reputation and warns him to keep his hands off of his sister in the meantime.
Bobbie and Trey has instant chemistry that sizzles on the page and the two have a hard time keeping their hands off each other. Both decide to have a summer romance--no strings attached--and secret to avoid Logan finding out.
What follows is a humorous, steamy, love story about two people who have found their perfect match. Macy packs in quirky southern charm and humor that had me laughing out loud. A delicious read-- with a secondary story involving Colton that I cannot wait to get my hands on!
September 2013 is sooooo far away.
Favorite funnies from A Shot of Sultry:
Trey didn't care how hot she was, threesomes were off the menu, especially when another dude was involved. The risk of crossing swords was too high. Plus, nobody liked boldly going where their friends had just gone before.
Squinting against the sunlight, he glanced at the tent he'd created beneath the sheet. Hell, that was no ordinary tent--it was a friggin' Ringling Brothers Big Top. You could fit a clown car under that dome.
"She's got baby fever.""Oh, snap." Well, hell. That'd take the jingle out of any man's junk. "Too bad there's no Tylenol for that."
