I love friends to lovers romances. They are the best of both worlds. You have a great friend who you enjoy hanging out with AND you have an amazing love life with a person you like. In fact, I can't think of a better love! There were even a few friends that I hoped to turn into a special love but it never worked out. Sadly for me. But that isn't the case for Summer... she has a great friend in Teddy and ooooohhhh.... even more!! Just look at that hunky cover!
Would you fall in love with your best friend? Why or why not?
In Isobel Reed's latest Bluestone Series book, LOVE SHOTS, Teddy and Summer are good friends but she hadn't been looking at him that way, until she found him owning the bar she hoped to work in. I loved coming back to Bluestone and the characters that appear from the other books. While LOVE SHOTS is great as a standalone, it's better to be read in conjunction with the rest of the series. The sparks fly between these two and I love the back and forth between them! Isobel Reed has a wonderful way of spinning tales and bringing characters to life. Don't miss this amazing book, out now in ebook and print!
Can these two old friends stop fighting their feelings long enough to grab hold of their second chance?
Summer’s life was not going plan. With no job or home, she found herself back in the small town she grew up in. Bluestone County. Despite being broke, she’d always dreamed of taking over her grandfather’s bar. So when she found out she was too late and her childhood friend Teddy had bought it, she might have lost it. As in banging down his door and throwing expensive bottles of whiskey at his wall kind of lost it. It wasn’t her finest moment. But talking of fine…
Retired Navy SEAL Teddy was used to dealing with tough situations. You name it, he’d seen it. Yet, nothing had quite prepared him for the sight of a raging Summer hurling an eight-hundred-dollar bottle of whiskey at his head. She certainly knew how to make an entrance. And raise his blood pressure. Having the blonde hellion back in town wasn’t all bad though. He’d missed his friend. Although he’d be lying if he said friendship was all he was interested in. Summer had owned his heart for a long time. He’d missed his chance once before, there was no way he was going to let that happen again.
Grab hold of this sexy ‘friends to lovers’ romance as these opposites sizzle through the small town of Bluestone. Alcohol flies, literally, as these two firebrands combust. It’s more than the whiskey talking. Isobel Reed’s story has all the feels of Tessa Bailey’s and Ellie Hall’s books combined with the sexy cowboys of Maisey Yates. LOVE SHOTS is the fourth book in the Bluestone County Series but can be read as a standalone, but why would you want to? In this small town, past heroes always stop by for a drink.
TRIGGER WARNING: LOVE SHOTS features a brooding hunk who will do anything to protect the spunky heroine from a dangerous ex who raised a hand to her.
“What. The. F**k.” Teddy seethed, “I can’t believe you just threw a f**king lamp at me!” He could hear his voice getting louder and louder by the second. “What the hell is wrong with you, Summer?”
“Me?” Summer’s shriek easily matched his volume as her hazel eyes narrowed on him. “What the hell is wrong with you?”
A second later, something else was hurtling toward him, only just missing his head. An ear-piercing smash later, he spared a glance at the floor to his left and couldn’t help but scowl. This had to be a bad dream. Dark liquid was now seeping into his hardwood floors while crooked shards of glass stood to attention.
“Have you lost your damn mind, woman? That was an eight-hundred-dollar bottle of whiskey!”
“Oh no,” she mocked, bringing her chipped red nails up to cup her face. “Sucks when someone takes something that isn’t theirs … doesn’t it?”
He’d had enough. “For the last goddamn time, Mickey wanted to sell, and I wanted to buy. End of story. You weren’t in the country … You’re never in the country! How on earth was I supposed to know Mickey promised you the bar? I’m not a damn mind reader, Summer!”
Really, this is all my fault, Teddy thought as he mentally cursed himself. It was too late for this bulls**t. Why on earth did he even answer the door? He was old enough and ugly enough to know that nothing good ever came from answering your door after midnight.
He certainly hadn’t been prepared to see Summer Willis. Mickey’s granddaughter. It had been five long years since he’d seen the beautiful, blonde, pain in his ass. And now here she was, using the contents of his shelf and his living room wall for target practice because, apparently, Mickey had at one point in time offered her the bar Teddy had just purchased.
