New Release+Review: Spiked Lemonade by Shari J. Ryan

Cover Design: MadHat Books
Release Date: August 29, 2016
I traded in my Navy uniform and short hair for tats and a scruffy beard to become a man on the run. Moving from town to town, taking comfort in hot cars and fast women was the only way I could outrun the nightmares. Then I met her… Looking like a Southern Belle in a small Texas town, all layered in pretty dresses and perfume, I call her beautiful. She calls me a perv. This beauty won’t admit I have something she wants (wink, wink, nudge, nudge), or that I’m the one she’s looking for, but I love that she has something I never knew I needed. I may be labeled as a jerk, but she’s going to fall in love with me, and I’m going to make her cuss and drink whisky instead of lemonade. Why? Because sometimes beauty comes with a dirty mouth and sometimes your lemonade needs to be spiked.    
We have good girl, Sasha and alpha male with a soft side, Jags. They are complete opposites and like the old saying goes those usually attract. I loved Jags in this book but Sasha was such a stick in the mud. She was very high strung,  very judgmental and quick to have her nose in the air. As the book progresses she finally loses up and I was able to tolerate her better. Her best friend Cali and her husband Tango made this book for me!! They are so hilarious and I loved their relationship. Ok, back to Jags and Sasha, they go through some stuff before they finally get it together. Sasha, has an ex boyfriend, Landon who is stalking her and won't stop until he gets her back. I was expecting more when it came to this part of the storyline but it kinda felt flat for me. This book does have some hilarious laugh out loud moments. The romantic comedy aspect of this book was great but the suspense fell flat. I will definitely be checking out Cali and Tango's book since I liked them so much. Oh and I can't forget Bambi! I hope we get a story about her as she is another interesting character. Ryan is a new to me author and I was impressed with my first book by her.
