A Shot Of Sultry by Macy Beckett

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Sultry Springs #2
Publication Date: 1st March 2013
Pages: 352
Book Source: Sourcebooks & NetGalley

Synopsis: 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 quick trip to her hometown might get her the footage 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...

Karen's Thoughts:
I really like Robyn Carr’s Virgin River series and Toni Blake’s Destiny series, so I found myself hunting around for contemporary romance novels set in small towns.

When Macy Beckett’s Sultry With a Twist started popping up on Goodreads and some blogs I follow I just knew I had to give it a try.  So glad I did because I really enjoyed it. Sultry With a Twist is the story of Luke Gallagher and June Augustine. One thing I loved in the first book was the relationship between Luke and his best friend Trey. Their snarky banter cracked me up.

Trey’s story, A Shot of Sultry is book 2 in this series set in the small Texas town of Sultry Springs and I enjoyed it just as much and I think it was a bit steamier than the first, which suits Trey to a T.  Good God that man is HOT!  He hooks up with none other than Luke’s baby sister, even after he promises his best friend he will keep his hands off.  A recipe for disaster.

The only disappointment for me for me was the lack of Epilogue.  There is a book 3 due out in August 2013 (feels like a lifetime away) so the story continues but I still missed an Epilogue, particularly when the first book had one.

Guest review by Karen Barr


  1. I'll have to try this series because Robyn Carr's VR series is probably my favorite contemporary romance series. So many authors include an epilogue these days so I wonder why not in this book.

    1. I love the Virgin River series and always seem to be waiting for the next one to come out...hopefully you will like this one Mary.

  2. Thanks for the great review ... off to check her out!

    1. Hope you like this one Julie....the first book I really loved

  3. I am gonna read this one soon :)

  4. Steamy and snarky banter, sounds like a good mix. Nice review Karen :)

  5. WE are twins separated at birth..I picked this one up too because I thought it sounded great and a bit like Higgins and shalvis!!

    1. Not sure I'm ever going to top Shalvis as a recommendation Staci, but I'd certainly recommend Macy Beckett
