Quick Review: "Sultry with a Twist" by Macy Beckett
From Goodreads: 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: I don't usually read a lot of romance novels but this one sounded so good that I had to pick it up. It did not disappoint! It pulled me in from the very beginning and there were enough turns to keep me reading. I actually read it all in a few hours, it moved that fast.
I loved the characters and the romance between June and Luke was so adorable. June is stubborn, feisty and kind of accident prone and Luke is the sweetest guy ever! I loved how much they tried to not show their feelings for each other before finally giving in. It was really funny watching them argue with each other and be all hard-headed when they really just wanted to be together. It's also a bit steamy if you like that sort of thing. : )
This book is the first in a trilogy and honestly, I will definitely be picking up the next in the series. It was a fun story with great characters and is definitely worth the read. 4 stars.
