I am always up for a romance but LOVE SHOTS is something different. Oh, it's a great romance, sexy too. But it has a guy working in a bar. Since the summer is in full swing right now, I want to know what drink would you have with this romance? Are you a beer person? Wine? or Something harder? My new favorite drink of choice is Lemonade Lightning. So fresh and with the kick of Moonshine!
LOVE SHOTS is the fourth book in the Bluestone Series. This book details the romance between Teddy and Summer, two friends who become more than friends. The dialogue is witty and the characters are likeable. I couldn't put it down. It's now available in ebook and print. While you can read it as a stand alone, you will enjoy it so much more with the rest of the Bluestone series. After all, the friends all crossover. It's like coming home!
Can these two old friends stop fighting their feelings long enough to grab hold of their second chance?
Summer’s life was not going plan. With no job or home, she found herself back in the small town she grew up in. Bluestone County. Despite being broke, she’d always dreamed of taking over her grandfather’s bar. So when she found out she was too late and her childhood friend Teddy had bought it, she might have lost it. As in banging down his door and throwing expensive bottles of whiskey at his wall kind of lost it. It wasn’t her finest moment. But talking of fine…
Retired Navy SEAL Teddy was used to dealing with tough situations. You name it, he’d seen it. Yet, nothing had quite prepared him for the sight of a raging Summer hurling an eight-hundred-dollar bottle of whiskey at his head. She certainly knew how to make an entrance. And raise his blood pressure. Having the blonde hellion back in town wasn’t all bad though. He’d missed his friend. Although he’d be lying if he said friendship was all he was interested in. Summer had owned his heart for a long time. He’d missed his chance once before, there was no way he was going to let that happen again.
Grab hold of this sexy ‘friends to lovers’ romance as these opposites sizzle through the small town of Bluestone. Alcohol flies, literally, as these two firebrands combust. It’s more than the whiskey talking. Isobel Reed’s story has all the feels of Tessa Bailey’s and Ellie Hall’s books combined with the sexy cowboys of Maisey Yates. LOVE SHOTS is the fourth book in the Bluestone County Series but can be read as a standalone, but why would you want to? In this small town, past heroes always stop by for a drink.
TRIGGER WARNING: LOVE SHOTS features a brooding hunk who will do anything to protect the spunky heroine from a dangerous ex who raised a hand to her.
Teddy stared at her so long she began to shift in her seat. His scrutiny was unnerving. She’d expected him to laugh, reminisce maybe, or at the very least crack a smile. He was doing none of those things. Instead, his eyes bore into her with such potency, she didn’t know where to look. Finally, she couldn’t take it anymore.
He stayed quiet for what seemed like an eternity. Eventually, he managed to snap himself out of it. Shaking his head, he ignored her question and simply said, “Your turn.”
Did I miss something?
“Uh, okay. Fine. Biggest lie you’ve ever told?”
She watched his mind work as he contemplated her question. He did that thing he always did when he was unsure: he ran his hand over the top of his head, ruffling his short brown hair enough to make him look like he’d just woken up.
“Remember the day I left for the Navy, we had breakfast that morning?” He waited for her to nod. “You asked me if there was anything you could’ve done or said that would’ve changed my mind about joining up. I said no, but that was a lie.”
Summer’s breathing hitched. She remembered that day as if it were yesterday. The image of Teddy driving away, forever etched in her mind. She remembered asking him that question too. It was intended as a joke, even though a part of her was still hoping he’d change his mind.
Her heart pounded as she waited for him to continue. Suddenly she had to know the answer.
“Teddy …” She trailed off, realizing she had no clue what to say next.
“The truth?” He paused for a moment. “You. The answer was you.”
“What?” Her voice was just a whisper. He wasn’t making sense.
“If you asked me to stay, Summer … then I would’ve stayed. For you.”
Did he just say what I think he just said?
There was no playfulness in his tone. It was scarily serious. And back came that stare. She searched his features for a smile, a smirk, a lip twitch. Anything. But there was nothing there.
