This is only the second book of Emma Hart’s that I’ve read and I loved it from start to finish. It was cute, it was romantic, and it was hilarious. There were several times that I was reading it in the break room with co-workers around and I had to stop myself from laughing out loud.
When Raven Archer opted to open a kitchen in her extremely popular bar Dirty the last thing she expected was her childhood nemesis, Parker Hamilton, working for her. They hated each other with that passion that bordered on crazy.
Parker Hamilton, best friend to Raven’s older brother, couldn’t believe he accepted the job to work at Dirty. But he’s about to find out that there is more to Raven than her ability to mix naughty sounding drinks.
This novel was a very quick read for me. I couldn’t put it down. It had enough sass and romance, arguing and laughter that I felt like I understood the characters on a fundamental level. As a wonderful bonus the drink names were fantastic. If I saw any of those drink names at a bar I’m sure I would order it immediately. A special extra bonus, is that at the end of the book the author included her recipe for the drinks. I absolutely LOVE that she made them and didn’t just make them up. It’s like she knew that people would want to try and make these drinks and she wanted to make sure they tasted good first. That’s totally awesome.
I suggest everyone should read at least one of her books. So far I’ve only been reading stand alone novels but I can’t wait to have the time to read a series by her. Maybe I’ll enjoy one of these great sounding drinks while I do.
Happy trails friends,
