MOONLIGHT & WHISKEY By Tricia Lynne
On Sale March 12th | Ballantine/Loveswept
Successful businesswoman Avery Barrows likes her dips and curves, but she’s sick of the haters telling her that she should be ashamed of her body instead of embracing it. Determined to send them a big f*** you, Avery resolves to cut loose during a girls’ trip, hightailing her quick-mouthed, plus-sized self to New Orleans. So, what’s a smart woman with a little extra gotta do to get laid in this town?
Not much if you ask Declan McGinn, the lead singer of BlackSmith. Tall, dark, and tattooed, with a body made for sin, Declan prefers his women as curvy as his guitars. Avery’s sharp tongue and keen mind makes him want her even more.
As they burn up the sheets, Avery and Declan realize this is no one-night (or even one-week) stand. But for all of her bluster, Avery isn’t sure she can handle any more rejection. Besides, Declan has demons of his own. Now Avery has a choice to make: play it safe, or place her trust in the hands of a man who’s as tempting as the devil himself.
Moonlight & Whiskey by Tricia Lynne was a nice surprise by a new-to-me author. A Rockstar romance with a twist! Avery Barrows is a full-size beautiful woman. Though she may be comfortable in her own skin, she hides who she is more often than not. But when a chance to get away to New Orleans comes up, she is determined to let go.
Declan McGinn is one hot man and a musician dealing with a hard past. He does not do more than one-night stands. And yet with Avery one-night turns into more. I loved Avery’s feisty attitude and Declan’s sexy charm. They had great chemistry and banter. Could they learn to truly let the other in before it was too late?
I enjoyed reading Moonlight & Whiskey by Tricia Lynne and hope read more of her work in the future. It was emotional and steamy.
Tricia Lynne is fluent in both sarcasm and cuss words—a combination that tends to embarrass her husband at corporate functions. A tomboy at heart, she loves hard rock, Irish whiskey, and her Midwestern roots. She’s drawn to strong, flawed heroines, and believes writing isn’t a decision one makes, but a calling one can’t resist. A member of the Romance Writers of America, she lives in Dallas with her husband and their goofy dogs.
