Welcome to Sultry Springs, Texas: where home can be the perfect place for a fresh start.

For West Coast filmmaker Bobbi Gallagher, going back to Sultry Springs is a last resort. But with her career in tatters, a documentary set in her hometown might be just what she needs to salvage her reputation. She just can't let anything distract her again. Not even the gorgeous contractor her brother asked to watch over her. As if she can't handle filming a few rowdy Texans.

Golden boy Trey Lewis, with his blond hair and Technicolor-blue eyes, is a leading man if Bobbi ever saw one. He's strong and confident and—much to her delight—usually shirtless. He thinks keeping his best friend's baby sister out of trouble will be easy. But he has no idea of the trouble in store for him...


My Review:

Macy Beckett's Sultry With a Twist was one of my reading highlights of 2012. I was anxious for this book because I knew it would be about Trey and I just loved Trey in the last book. Beckett did not disappoint.

Bobbi was just great. I loved her. She was feisty and lively. She had the same feelings about marriage that I do and also the same dislike of misplaced apostrophes. She also had a bit of a rocky past which added a nice depth to her character. It was difficult not to like her even though reality TV leads to kind of slimy associations. I knew I would love Trey so it was not such a surprise that I did end up loving him. But I am a bit surprised at how much. Possibly more than Luke. He was sweet and a bit scampy and I loved him.

I loved this book. I did and even writing this review on perhaps the worst day of my life, it still brings a smile to my face thinking about it. I always get extremely excited when books I am anxiously awaiting don't disappoint me. The chemistry between Bobbi and Trey was amazing. They bickered and fought but they were just perfect together. I love them more than June and Luke. Macy Beckett is quickly becoming one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. I will be anxiously awaiting Colton's book—he's going to be quite the hero.
