Review: Mai Tai’d Up by Alice Clayton

Author: Alice Clayton
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Humor
Publisher: Gallery Books
Review: 4 out of 5 stars

Book description:

Looking for the perfect mix of smart, sexy, and sassy? Mai Tai’d Up continues New York Times bestselling author Alice Clayton’s Cocktail series, which began with Wallbanger and continued with Rusty Nailed and Screwdrivered.

The gossip mill in the seaside community of Monterey is churning about Chloe Patterson, the newcomer who is starting a sanctuary for rescued pit bulls. It’s rumored that she’s a former beauty queen (true) who ditched her fiancé the morning of their wedding (also true). And that while she’s not looking for a new man, the good-looking local veterinarian has his eye on her. Absolutely, positively true.

When Lucas Campbell isn’t at the family veterinary clinic, he’s paddle boarding in Monterey Bay. Recently single, he’s definitely not in the market for a new relationship, but he still can’t resist taking a second, third, and fourth look at the recent arrival of Miss Golden State.

Neither Lucas nor Chloe has any interest in being tied down. Being tied up, however—now there’s a thought. But are a few Mai Tais, a moonlit night, and the music of Frank Sinatra enough to allow them both to forget their past? Let’s hope Ol’ Blue Eyes knows what he’s doing.

Mix one part tiki, one part kinky, and a splash of old black magic matchmaking, and it’s time to be . . . Mai Tai’d Up.

Review:

SQUEE!! I’m so excited Mai Tai’d Up is finally here!!

These past few days have been so much fun! I’ve been catching with all the “Cocktail” books, and must say this was another perfect installment to an already sensational and lovable series! ❤

Chloe and Lucas were an adorable and sexy couple that you won’t be able to resist!

Chloe is not your typical beauty queen. She’s the complete opposite, actually. She is drop-dead gorgeous but dreams to have a life that isn’t so businesslike. All her life she’s had things planned for her, including her wedding day! Thankfully, she realized she wasn’t in love with her soon-to-be husband–even if it was the morning of! Following her heart and taking her life in her own hands, she begins to find peace in Monterey. Yep, she sure does! She finds peace and much more, including a hunk named Lucas. BOOM! Yea, let’s get to him. 😉

Lucas is a charismatic guy that also has a big…heart. *SWOON* He’s a vet. *THUD* He travels with Vets Without Borders. *HEART CLENCHES* He’s a ginger. *IMAGINE SAM HEUGHAN*

Yep! Enjoy that picture I painted for you.

When they meet and get to know each other, they soon recognize they have A LOT in common. Like, an eerie amount in common. Their friendship blossoms effortlessly, but they both agreed early on that they aren’t looking for anything (considering they both just got out of pretty serious relationships). But what happens when they become friends WITHOUT the benefits!? ANDDD, add to the mix that Lucas is going to Belize for a few months!? Well, you are left with a fun read full of excitement and new adventures! That’s what! 😀

I had such a great time reading this book! Though I always recommend reading the previous installments in any series, I truly believe if you read one before another in the “Cocktail Series,” you’ll know exactly what’s going on! 🙂 Alice does a phenomenal job summarizing and including “need to know” tidbits in the stories, and blends them to perfection! However, as you can probably tell, you should probably run and get the complete series, because they’re absolutely wonderful! Each book is funny, charming, entertaining, and most of all: delicious! You’ll fall in love with these characters and want each of the girls to be your best friend! (Also, can we take a second to appreciate each of the covers?! #Love)

Hurry now, and let me know which book in the series is your favorite!

Go on! Catch up with Cocktail Series! 😀
