Summary

He tasted like tequila and the fake name I gave him was Rose. 

Four years ago, I decided to get over one man, by getting under another. A single night and nothing more. 

I found my handsome stranger with a shot glass and charming but devilish smile at the end of the bar. The desire that hit his eyes the second they landed on me ignited a spark inside me, instant and hot. He was perfect and everything I didn’t know I needed. That one night may have ended, but I left with much more than a memory. 

Four years later, and with a three-year-old in tow, the man I still dream about is staring at me from across the street in the town I grew up in. I don’t miss the flash of recognition, or the heat in his gaze. 

The chemistry is still there, even after all these years. 

I just hope the secrets and regrets don’t destroy our second chance before it’s even begun.

Perfect Small Town Romance

A small town romance with a big longing heart, Tequila Rose is a perfect audiobook for these cold wintery months.

Magnolia's life is going along quite nicely until she bumps into Brody, the guy she hasn't seen in four years. The chemistry and attraction is still very strong, but Maggie's life is more complicated now, and she is forced to confront secrets she has kept to herself.

This book has a lovely, charming, warm and endearing quality. It is a tale of a classic love affair. Brody and Maggie seem so perfect for each other, but the past has a way of intervening in the present.

This is such a lovely story. The main characters are so likeable, engaging and relatable. I am hooked and looking forward to completing this series.

Not for me

Wait what??? A 3 year old child with 2 potential fathers and you don’t get a paternity test??? Found the story too annoying to finish. Naive and frustrating

Asymmetric

I should have taken a shot each time the author used this to describe the H’s smile. It had all the makings of a good story, a great narration team, but it fell short. I feel like I wasted a credit on an author I wanted to give a second chance. The story could have been so much better with more character development and less of the whiny slow burn. Just a boring lifetime movie in the making.

Secrets, lies and love triangle!!

Willow Winters wrote another amazing book. This book had secrets, lies, and love. Magnolia has had so much happen to her in her life that it only makes her stronger. She lives in a small town where everyone knows everyone. She went away to college and ends up meeting Brody and having a one night stand. Family issues causes her to return home abruptly.

Years later Brody ends up in the small town where Magnolia is from but he knows her by a different name 😉. The secrets and lies start to pile up on Magnolia. On one hand there is Robert, her childhood love and on the other hand is Brody whom she has this extreme connection to. The sparks between Brody and Magnolia is explosive!

I received this book as an ARC and I highly recommend reading. There is a cliffhanger and it leaves you wanting more. Who will Magnolia choose??

I hate cliffhangers!

I buy all of Willow Winters books. Some of these books I listen to or read a second time. Nowhere in the first book when I first purchased it did it tell me that there was going to be a follow on book I went back and checked before I left this review. When I know it’s going to be a duet I usually wait until the second book comes out so that I can read them back to back I’m extremely disappointed in this enough for me to leave a bad review for an author that I love to read and respect her abilities. Also, I love Sebastian York and his narrations however, I did not like the narration from Lydia Dornette, at all, it was a turn off to me when she spoke.

Who to Choose?

A cliffhanger!?! Grumble-Grumble! 😂 Seriously, this book was so good that I had a hard time putting it down to work. It’s not like any of her other books. I am used to her dark, mafia, alpha-male books. The men in Tequila Rose are gentlemen and kind. I don’t know how she’s going to choose between the two of them because I cannot tell you who I like best.

This is a very sweet love story. There are still some secrets that haven’t been revealed yet. I’m excited that we don’t have to wait too long for the second part of the story. Read this book!

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Be prepared to buy more if you like the book.

I enjoy Willow Winters’ writing, huge fan of Sebastian York. New to Lidia Dornet, I enjoyed her very much. Story was good, performers were good, I hate the book ending and I need to purchase another to hear the rest of the story. Why does it not state 1 of 2 or book 1 of series. It just feels deceitful. I’ve bought many series (many many ). But I appreciate the heads up if I don’t have time or budget to invest I can make a choice.

**Cliffhanger alert**

Thought it was a stand-alone romance, story was good but definitely would have chose differently had I known there will potentially be a sequel...wish it would have stated that it was book one of however many there is going to be...

My Thoughts on Tequila Rose

3.5 of 5 stars

So I'm struggling with my review for this one. I found the storyline itself to be really interesting. I'm a big fan of surprise or secret baby romance. So I definitely liked that aspect of the story. And I could even understand with everything that happens why there was the secrecy on one side. But as the story went on and I learned more about all of the different characters, that's the part that ended up not sitting right with me. I know it's okay to not love characters or really like them very much. And I always hope anyway that there will be characters that I love. And to be honest I loved Brody. And even Renee and Griffin the best friends are really likable characters. But I really didn't like Robert even if he was sometimes cast in a positive light. There are just certain things that I feel like he didn't do right by Magnolia enough for me to like him. And then there was Magnolia herself. I really wanted to like her. And there were moments when I almost felt like I was starting to get there. And if I'm completely honest I won't say that she's a bad character. I don't dislike her. I just don't really like her. And that unfortunately affects my overall enjoyment of a story sometimes. The plot can be good, the flow can be good, and there can be a handful of other good things that I can pick out that make me feel like "okay overall this was a good story". But what kept it from being a great story for me was that I don't know that I like the leading lady. There were just too many things that I felt like she could have and should have handled differently. And I know that not everyone is always going to handle things the way that you might. And of course I realize this is a fictional story. But she came across as a little weak to me. I love the strength that she showed as a single mom. And I definitely felt for her with all the things that she went through when she had to leave college. But at the same time I think that there were certain things that she could have and should have asked of certain people in her life. And I think that there are other things that she should have shown a bit more backbone about.

But after all is said and done, I don't know that my feelings for Magnolia would stop me from reading the second book. I still kind of want to know what is going to happen with all of this.

What I really liked was the narration. Both narrators did a good job and I loved being able to listen to their performance.
