Title: Mai Tai'd Up
Author: Alice Clayton
Series: Cocktail Series #4
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.
One of the things that Alice Clayton is a master of is witty dialogue and hilarious inner monologues. I'm pretty sure I'm going to adopt some of these sayings and incorporate them in my every day life. There were several that actually made me laugh out loud. I thought this story was sweet, funny, and sexy. I enjoyed the rat pack lingo immensely and I think it's wonderful how all of the characters are loosely connected with characters from other books in this series. We get to see some of our favorite characters (Viv, Clark, Sophia, and Neil), but the story is clearly Chloe and Lucas'.
