Sultry with a Twist

Sultry Springs, #1

Sultry with a Twist was a good read. I enjoyed how the author provided me with the history about Luke and Jane. That made it so I knew what was going on and why they felt the way they did. These two are about to get a second chance when both end up meeting up in their hometown of Sultry Springs.

This is a great introduction to a series that looks to be wonderful. Readers will enjoy small town Sultry Springs, Texas. I did.

This story has a lot of feeling. You can tell that Luke and June care deeply for each other but they didn't want the other one to know how they felt. June was only in Sultry Springs because she had to be there, not because she wanted to be there. Luke lived there and was trying to make something of himself. He feels like he is never good enough for anything. I wish that just because you weren't brought up a certain way it didn't make you weak and made you think you'd never be good enough for anyone. Some people just need some encouragement. I'm glad that after all the time that June was away from her hometown that she went back and made amends with everyone. It showed that with a little hard work and determination anybody can do anything they want too. I look forward to more of the series of this book.

Book Blurb for Sultry with a Twist

Welcome to Sultry Springs, Texas: where first loves find second chances…

Nine years after June Augustine hightailed it out of Sultry Springs with her heart in pieces, one thing stands between her and her dream of opening an upscale martini bar: a bogus warrant from her tiny Texas hometown. Now she’s stuck in the sticks for a month of community service under the supervision of the devilishly sexy Luke Gallagher, her first love and ex-best friend.

If Texas in July wasn’t already hot enough, working side-by-side with June would make any man melt. Luke wants nothing more than to strip her down and throw her in the lake—the same lake where they were found buck naked and guilty as sin all those years ago. In their heads, they’re older and wiser. But their hearts tell a different story…
