Title: Kelly (Mixed Drinks #2)
Author: Rae Matthews
Bacon does make everything better, doesn’t it? For Kelly, bacon was about to become a part of her almost daily routine. I’m not sure that she minded having bacon around her almost every single day, since she loves it so much. But it’s not what she had planned for herself. She had the job she wanted, the car she wanted and lived with her best friend. You know when everything is going so well, fate has a way of taking some of those things back because it probably thinks you’ve got it too damn good? Well that’s what happened to Kelly. She gets laid off but is hopefull she will be able to go back 3 months tops! Boy oh boy was she wrong. She gets set up on dates but nothing to brag some about.
Life has a fun, sick and twisted way of testing your limits and how much you can take. For Kelly, fate must really have it in for her because she was handed one crap card after the next, until Jesse. There are times that your best friends are right and when a hot piece of ass gives you their number, you haven’t gotten laid, and your bff says to call them, you call them. Really, what do you have to lose?
“The world is my urinal, watch out world I am gonna pee on you.”
Kelly goes from one embarrasing moment to the next and as if fate wasn’t lauhing enough, hands her and her best friend the crappiest of cards. Both her and Ashley take matters into their own hands and try to solve their problems themselves rather than letting Jesse and Chad know what’s up. Now, this is where all hell starts breaking lose. One thing happens after another, balls get squeezed, dicks get shot off and you earn the nickname “ball crusher/ball buster”.
“…life may toss you lemons and a fe limes at times, and when it does do not even think about making lemonade! You need to squeeze those bad boys into a blender, add in a shot of two of tequila, and top it off with some sugar and ice. Blend it all togetheruntil you have the best tasting margarita in the world, and it will be the best because nothing tastes better than a life well lived”
I loved Kelly’s attitude, not letting things get her down. There was a moment in which I did want to slap Kelly and tell her to shut up and let Jesse do his thing. Seriously girl, he’s the professional. I’m also glad we didn’t have a “Marley & Me” moment, because I would have thrown my kindle and had a few choice words for the author.
All in all, I did enjoy this book, had a few laughs and the sex was good too. But I don’t want you going in thinking the book is all about sex, because it isn’t. There is sex, but not to the point that it takes away from the story. I did feel that if the book was longer, I think that the chemistry between the main characters would have de … Read more
