Book Description

Praise for Sultry with a Twist:

"Fun and flirty with characters you'll love page after page."—Christie Craig, New York Times bestselling author

"Hilarious, heart-warming, sexy, and real—you'll fall in love, guaranteed!"—Lori Foster, New York Times bestselling author

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...

    From Booklist

    Beckett joins the hoard of authors writing about small Texas towns with hearts of gold. After bombing out in Hollywood, documentary filmmaker Bobbi Gallagher gets another chance from a reality-TV producer to shoot a show about how good old boys try to find love in all the wrong places. Bobbi decides to visit her newly married stepbrother, Luke, in Sultry Springs, Texas, and film his rowdy friends in their bids for love. She’s particularly taken with her stepbrother’s best friend, Trey Lewis, who’s just passing time until he ships out to Dubai, where he will be able to purge his less-than-honorable discharge with a civilian contract. Even though Luke and Trey’s mother disapprove, Bobbi and Trey slowly get closer until Trey’s old fiancée reenters his life. What with getting to know her stepbrother, filming the reality show, and falling for Trey, Bobbi’s life is chaos. Beckett’s foray into love in a small town bounces from funny to endearing to poignant, making her a welcome addition to an otherwise overstocked romance subgenre. --Pat Henshaw

    5.0 out of 5 stars In love with Sultry Springs!!!! March 5, 2013
    By Kelly
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Oh Man!!!! Book two in the Sultry Springs series is SO good. Trey, ahhhh the sweet Golden Boy finally meets his match in a feisty redhead from California. And to say their first meeting was... will eventful would be an understatement.
    I loved the beginning, middle and end of this book so much. I read it in one sitting. I kept saying to myself "just one more chapter and I will put down the book and go to sleep" Needless to say at 2 am I finally did read the last chapter, wiped the tears from my eyes and went to bed very happy.
    I love these character, love this series and love Macy!!! I so can't wait to see what she has in store for our resident bad-boy sheriff, in book 3 Surrender to Sultry (Aug 1, 2013).

    Again if you have not jumped into Sultry Springs Texas you really need too. You will be surprised at what can be found behind the doors of a small hick town.

    I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Review can be found at [...]

    5.0 out of 5 stars Love Macy Beckett's small town romances! March 5, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Macy Beckett totally nailed this book! It's rare to find a story that can entertain me so completely, but A Shot of Sultry did just that. The residents of Sultry Springs are a little crazy, some break your heart, but they all leave you feeling something and that's the connection I was hoping for! Revisiting Luke and Joonbug brought a smile to my face & I loved their interactions with Trey and Bobbi. I don't want to give away too much about Trey and Bobbi, but I will say that their chemistry was instant and holy hot tamales, it was fun to read! I can't get over how well Macy Beckett managed to balance the humor with the emotional heartache in this story. Definitely one of the best books I've read in awhile & I can't wait to read Surrender to Sultry!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the series! March 5, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I returned to Sultry Springs for the second story in the series, A Shot of Sultry, and I couldn't be more delighted that Trey's story was just as enjoyable as the first book. Her writing is entertaining and funny with endearing characters which make it so easy to fall in love with them.

    Trey Lewis is looking to get a fresh start in life and wants to clear his name. He's accepted a security detail job in Dubai for the next two years and in exchange the Army will expunge his dishonorable discharge. He wants to be his own man and maybe starting a company is possible without that blot on his record.

    Bobbi Gallagher needs a fresh start too. She's Luke's half-sister, and plans to go to Sultry and film a documentary in order to resurrect her career. Her last film tanked when her reliable source wasn't so reliable and now she is videographer for weddings. She's been asked to film a new reality show and she exactly where she wants to go. It may not be award winning or public awareness material, but it is her foot in the door and a way back into working again. She is going to need participants in her reality TV show and what better place for `redneck' love is to go to Sultry and find some willing subjects. Lucky for her Trey is one of them.

    Trey was instantly attracted to her the moment her sees her enter the bar the fun began. Trey thought he was doing Luke a favor and throwing out the skank, but to his surprise his best friend has a sister he didn't know about. And boy is she hot! He may not like the idea of being part of her reality show, filming his love life, but it is a way to be close to her and keep an eye out for her. Trey is just one of those guys that are easy-going, fun and quite the charmer.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational Sultry!! March 5, 2013
    By Sue P
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    Wow, I was so lucky to receive an ARC of A Shot of Sultry!!! Loved, loved it!!! Romance with a lot of steam and a really good story behind it. :) Bobbi and Trey's meeting was a hoot and it was great to 'see' their relationship evolve through the book. The story line was unique and intriguing. I love Macy's books...same with Sultry With a Twist, the characters are realistic, they don't play games, tell it like it is, and you can really relate to them! Funny, romantic and sexy...this book sucked me right into Sultry (again)! I am really excited for the third book now!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet and Funny! March 5, 2013
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    I loved this book! Trey is such an amazing man and Bobbi is just the woman for him. This book had me laughing out loud several times. I loved the fact that we got to read more about June and Luke also. Great story! I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to laugh and love!

    5.0 out of 5 stars This is a Winner!!!! March 7, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I loved everything about this book, from the quirky characters, the steamy hot Cowboys, to the two zoned-out film crew Bobbi worked with. This is the first book I've read in the series, but I just downloaded the first one, which is the story about Bobbi's long lost brother, Luke. I felt so sad for Colt at the end and I can't wait to read his story now. Aug. is a long time away right now, but I don't intend to miss it once it hits the stands.

    Oh, I forgot to mention Gopher. That poor child stole my heart right from the very beginning. I just hope the author includes him in the next book, because I would love to see how he's doing, too. For a child of fourteen, two years is a very long time to be away from you mentor. I just loved the interaction between him and Trey. It so heart-warming, and sometimes it was so hilarious. Especially when it came to the two of them talking about sex and women. LOL!!!

    Would I recommend this book? Yes, most definitely!
