Review: Sultry with a twist - Macy Beckett

When Mae-June July Augustine hightailed it out of Sultry Springs, Texas, with her heart in pieces, she swore she'd never return. But nine years later, one thing stands between June and her dream of opening an upscale martini bar: a month of community service under the supervision of the devilishly sexy Luke Gallagher, her first love and ex-best friend. As lust turns to love, June must decide where she belongs: in the glorious anonymity of Austin or back in Sultry Springs with the man who intoxicates her like no other.

My thoughts:
A contemporary romance set in a small town, insert a grandmother with a mission, and two young people meant to be. And there you have it.

Mae-June has not spoken with her grandmother in ages. Sure I got why, still I felt sorry of her gran who was all alone. June loves her job, she has plans for her future and she is an all around nice woman. Still fate (meaning her grandmother Pru has other plans for her). Oh Pru, I do like grandmothers who know what they want, even if she would be way to tough for me.

Sultry Springs, is a god fearing community. Not so many meddling old women around here (but you know that they are there). We do meet some of the church ladies and the priest. A nice cast for this book. Together with Trey, but then who is Trey? I am ahead of myself, but I will say that I hope his book is next.

The hero then. That would be Lucas, June's best friend, and the guy she has a crush on when younger. Now they are both suddenly older, but not always wiser. He has baggage and, well that needs to be worked through. But I liked him. He had been hurt, he has lost what he wanted. A good guy, even if that chip on his shoulder was mighty big. Oh and Trey's is his best friend if you wondered ;)

Conclusion:
A sweet romance about finding the love you always wanted.

  5. Ok, that could almost be a dock on a Minnesota lake, except that right now, with the gutsy winds, that couple would be blowing over the reeds, shrieking.

    1. It could be here too, but then the water would be so high and it would be raining so they would be drenched and cold

  14. I haven't read in a while an Amanda Carlson recommended me this book, I read the blurb and a preview and it sound really good, but finally didn't read it because the religious thing felt too strong, I don't know if I'm right or not. If I'm not wrong I'm sure going to read it. So I need your honest opinion about it. Thank you.

    1. I feared it would be strong, but honestly it did not really turn out like that. Her granny is religious but she just follows gran to church to be nice

    2. Thank you, that's exactly what I wanted to know. :)

  15. I've read more reviews about this book today, and I am afraid the humor is too over the top for me. Just look at her name. Add a pinch of religion to that, and I think I will pass.

    1. There isn't that much humour really, but yeah I get about the religion. Luckily it was not much

  16. Sounds like it might be a little too sweet for me.

  17. Sounds like a nice romance for when you just want to get lost into a story!

  18. I love meddling family members. I always feel like those stories are so much more fun.
