It was supposed to be fun.
A mutual use of each other’s bodies.
To be a ruse to the world around us.
I wanted to be free from my ex, and he wanted to escape his.
One drunken night turned a joke into a life-changing moment.
He warned me not to fall for him, and I should’ve listened.
He intoxicated me.
He made me crave him.
He ruined me.
In the end, I’ll never be the same.
Hope Town just got a little bit hotter with the latest release, Drunk On You by Harper Sloan.
Shane and Nikki have more in common than mutual friends. They are both dealing with stalking exes that have made their lives miserable. After dealing with the bad relationships, they are both dealing with moving on because their exes just don’t want to let go of their lives. The one thing they both want back is control over their lives and relationships.
Nikki is a sweet soul dedicated to her teaching career. Her ex cheated on her while they were in a four year relationship. She always put him first and herself second. After a year apart he has decided he wants her back and won’t take no for answer. She’s decided to take control of her life and next relationship. She won’t allow another man to walk all over her nor will she accept mediocre. She wants it all and wants it on her terms. In the meantime she is going to put herself back out there and enjoy life. That moment begins in the Dirty Dog when Shane gives her an unforgettable dirty dance.
Shane is dealing with his own troublesome ex who is persistent. He felt he lost control of his life when he was in a relationship with her. Her emotions and demands drained him dry. He’s ready for something more but it is going to be on his terms. He will dictate the when, the where’s, and the how’s. When he sees Nikki at the bar, he’s ready to put his plan into action.
What starts out as a night of fun with promised pleasure quickly turns into something sizzling. The only thing getting burned this time around is the sheets!
Drunk On You is the best book in the Hope Town series to date. This book had a bit of a light BDSM theme that was romantic and charming at the same time. I fell hopelessly in love with Shane and admired the person Nikki was.
They both deserved this happily ever after. I can’t wait to see who falls next in The Hope Town series. Great job Harper Sloan!
