SULTRY WITH A TWIST  is a fun contemporary romance about a second chance at love.  With a good amount of southern quirkiness and humor, the best part about this story was its southern charm.  The little phrases and and all around small town lifestyle and people really got me.

Mae-June July Augustine *giggles* had left Sultry Springs after the man she was in love with rejected her.  She never looked back and for the past few years she’s been building her life and her future in a bigger city.  When things seem to finally be coming together for her, she’s got the money to put down as part owner of a bar, she runs into trouble.  And trouble brings her back to Sultry Springs.

Luke was also back in town, has been for a while.  After he left June he followed his military dreams, the those crumbled and he got married.  Then that crumbled and he came back home.  She has been the girl of his dreams, then and now.  Life and a judge have put them now back together, in very close proximity and with every possible advantage to rekindling their relationship.

The sexual tension between these two was great, flirty and fun.  Although this book was recommended to me as a bit of a spicy read, I think I was expecting more on that end than I actually got, but the tension and attraction was there.  The world was also very well developed.  Like I said before, this book exudes southern charm and it has a sweet feel-good quality.

Definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a sweet small town romance.  I would love to see where the author takes the series from here.  Now I just have to find out who will bring Trey to his knees.

Favorite quote:“It was a miracle they hadn’t named her Jägermeister.”

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
