Review: "A Shot of Sultry" by Macy Beckett

 From Goodreads:  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..

My Thoughts:  I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  I love this series!!   A Shot of Sultry is the second Sultry Springs book and I absolutely loved it.  I am not a huge fan of romance novels but this book was really good.

I liked Trey's character a lot in Sultry with a Twist and I loved that he got his own book because he is such a great character.  He is a total smart ass but also incredibly endearing.  Oh and did I mention he's smoking hot?!  I also liked Bobbi a lot.  In the very beginning, I wasn't so sure that I was going to like her but as I got further into the book, I got to know her more and I had to admire her as a character.  She had to deal with so much throughout her life and she tried to act so tough in an effort to mask her vulnerability.

The story is really fun; Bobbi is supposed to filming a sleazy reality tv show but instead sparks fly between her Trey.  The romance aspect of the story is pretty steamy but also really sweet.  There are a lot of great encounters between Bobbi and Trey and it is nice to see Bobbi reconnect with her brother, Luke.  That is one thing that I definitely liked about this book, that I got to see June and Luke again; I loved them in Sultry with a Twist and I was glad they played a big part in this book.  There was a new character, Colton, in this book and even though he seemed liked a sleazy guy at first, I really started to like him.  He is actually featured in the next book and I am excited to see how his story turns out.  Overall, this is a really great read:  whether or not you are a fan of romance novels, you should definitely check this book out! 4 stars. 


  1. I really liked this one too though I enjoyed the first book more. This is a great series!
