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.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Alice Clayton, THANK YOU! Mai Tai’d was a fabulous read and exactly what I was looking for! Heartwarming, funny and chocked full of sexual tension. I couldn’t put this book down… Made for some very late night reading 😉
I was immediately drawn to Chloe, another brilliant character created by Ms. Clayton. Right from the first few pages I needed to know who this character was and what the future had in store for her. Another strong, independent woman…There seriously aren’t enough of these characters around.
Lucas…OMG!! How can you not fall for a veterinarian with Prince Harry hair! Kryptonite indeed!!! Next to Simon, Lucas is my is my favourite Cocktail series book boyfriend. He’s sweet and funny and when you learn his story — your jaw will literally hit the floor!!!
All of the character in the story is brilliantly written — especially Sammy Davis Jr! He stole my heart. As did several of his four-legged friends. Stories that included animals…all good in my books 😉
Once I started Mai Tai’d I couldn’t put it down. The story was heartwarming and sweet, and packed full of brilliant sexual tension that kept me wanting more…DAMN! Loved the build-up between the characters
I dare you not to get sucked into Mai Tai’d. Fabulous characters, two-legged and four-legged, true to life situations, quirky reference to the Rat Pack that completely set the tone for this fab read! I really don’t know what else to say other than this book is not to be missed. A Funny, mildly-angsty, sexy read that I won’t soon forget. Nic
