Take one sexy bartender. Add a badass 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?

That's me. Leah Marie Paige.

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 definitely mutual.

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 different.

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.

Maria’s Review

➦Ok, so check this out. VISUALIZE THIS. You asked another chick for a ride from a bar because you’re too drunk to drive yourself. You saw this chick barely drank anything but, when she starts driving like a MANIAC, you realize she’s

➦Yeah, she’s on something. And then she crashes your car and bails into the woods and YOU get arrested. What would you do? I’ll tell you what I would do.


➦I mean, as long as soon as I find her. lol But since I’ll be in handcuffs I guess I’ll just do what the heroine of this novel did. Cuz that’s, like, more realistic.

➦But then, cuz I’m so totally FAB, a certain cop would come to my rescue. Except he’s not really as pleasant as he used to be back in the day. Still as hot though.

➦I know, it pleased me immensely too. But I’m not about to put a whole bunch of hot cop pics up again. I mean, been there, done that. Use your imagination 😀 So back to the point of this review. This cop gets the heroine to do 100 hours of community service. With him. Because, he’s sneaky.

➦If you like second chance stories and friends to lovers tropes with a bunch of flashbacks to the past (my fave) then give this one a look! The hero was a best friend of the heroine’s ex. So just a heads up, there is a “dead ex” but also the “I’m in a relationship with the wrong guy” situation. I didn’t mind any of it, but just fyi for anyone who might be sensitive to such things.
