Dirty cocktails, deadly enemies with a red-hot attraction, and one big, crazy, Greek family--what could possibly go wrong?
Hiring my brother’s best friend was not on my to-do list.
Neither was he.
Expanding my dirty cocktail bar into food was supposed to be easy, except finding a chef in my little town of Whiskey Key is anything but.
Until Parker Hamilton comes home—bringing his Michelin starred chef’s hat with him.
He has no work. I need someone like him in my new kitchen.
There’s just one problem: I hate his cocky, filthy-mouthed, sexy-as-hell guts.
Even if I might want him. Just a little…
Working for my best friend’s sister? Not on my to-do list.
She’s another story.
Whiskey Key was supposed to be a relaxing vacation, except I haven’t reached the heights I have by lying in a hammock drinking cocktails. So when Raven Archer is desperate for a chef, I offer up my skills.
I’m bored. She needs what I can give her.
Except there’s a problem: I’ve always hated her.
Her and her big, blue eyes, sassy mouth, and killer curves.
If only I didn’t want her.
Cocktails, crazy family, and love are a great combo!
“Then this curveball happened. Now, I’m forced into spending more time with him than I’m truly comfortable with, and every time he switches that dumb little smile onto me, I’m not gonna lie, I get…tingly. I’m a woman. I have needs. I also have feels, and these feels are effed up.”
This book! I don’t know how Emma Hart always pulls me into her stories and makes me want to be a part of the worlds she creates. I seriously find myself laughing out loud, crying, and having way too many feels for one story. This is yet another one of those books.
Parker and Raven have been fighting for years. Both are accomplished in their careers, share mutual friends, and are full of clever comebacks. The minute that Parker begins his tenure in Raven’s bar… well, let’s just say “sparks flying” isn’t a strong enough phrase. At every turn they seemed to be fighting one another, disagreeing about something, or just generally causing the other some level of discomfort or annoyance. I loved every minute of it!
Raven’s family is AMAZING! I love how they’re all busybodies, but they mean well. Also, it was interesting to see Greek culture added into a book. I’ve read a lot of fun families, but this one is unique. Also, the cocktails featured in this book sound delicious! I found myself highlighting many of the ingredients so I could suggest them to the drink mixing friends!
This is a great story. It made me laugh, drew me in, and it made my heart feel full. I’m glad I finally got the chance to read Raven’s story. A definite must read.
Author is losing her touch
Raven is an immature, annoying, brat. Parker is a decent guy that realizes he's got feelings for her & Raven doesn't take anything seriously. That's the entire book. And the focus is 80% her stupid family, not enough romance or focus on Parker & Raven.
Once again, all 5 star ratings... LIARS 🙄👎🏽
Super fun summer read!!
Parker & Raven's witty hate-banter is absolutely fantastic and literally had me laughing out loud! Raven's crazy Greek family is seriously too much for words. Her mom being best friends with Parker's mom makes everything that much more entertaining; especially when they team up and play detective because they think Parker & Raven are secretly together!
If you're looking for a light-hearted, low angst, fun summer read, look no further; this is it!
