My parents were conmen and I was their tool. I learned how to cheat, connive, and charm my way out of any circumstance. But now I’m respectable…kind of. Yeah, my life is still a lie, but that’s because I have no choice. My best friend, who’s also my boss, needs me to lie to keep our billion-dollar charity going. It’s complicated.
But all the lies are about to end. I just have to finish one final task…taking over a brewery. Easy, right?
Not so much. Because that brewery is part of a custody battle between mother and daughter. The mother owns it. The daughter thinks it should be hers. I’m caught in the middle. Not normally a bad place to be when it comes to two feisty women.
But I’m falling for the daughter and when my lies come to light, everything is going to unravel. And then my future with the brewery and the girl will be shot to hell.
WOW! Yes, when a review starts that way, you know the book had to be good…and boy was it! Deliciously Smooth is so well written with a unique story and characters that I could not help how involved I felt with this book. I was sucked in from the beginning and could not put it down. Yes, it was that good.
The heroine, Lake, is a tough girl with a dramatic childhood (she calls her mother “egg donor”). She could come across as bitchy, but I felt that her personality just strengthened the character and made her less predictable. She runs her late father’s brewery and is shocked to find out that he left it to her mother. The hero, Walsh, wants to buy it from her and she can’t exactly say no because of how poorly her father ran the business. With a tough as nails heroine and “sex on a stick” hero, you know there is going to be head butting and steamy moments throughout the story!
My only complaint about this story is that it left me wanting more and has a cliffhanger of sorts. I can’t wait to see what comes next in this delicious series!
