My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book wasn't only enjoyable it was informative. I have to say that I learned a LOT about Tequila and you can see that Kelly Jamieson
really did her due diligence with researching the subject. I have been a fan of Kelly Jamieson
's for a while now and when I saw that she had a new series out I had to grab it...and I am so happy that I did.
I Loved Beck! He is a former Navy SEAL and now he co-owns a Tequila Bar with two of his friends, he is also the bartender at Conquistadors, but that's not all....(yep not telling, it's a big spoiler if I do). Anyway, Marco decided that they should have a Tequila tasting one night at Conquistadors and that is where Beck meets Hayden.
Hayden is a workaholic, but she is a scientist on the hunt for something big, all of her time is spent in the lab or teaching or helping out her Aunt & Uncle (which she does quite a bit). I really enjoy when the good girl that finds the right guy to cut loose with and that is exactly what we have here. The chemistry between Beck and Hayden was great. I couldn't get enough of these two and I really hope that we see them in the next book which will be Marco's story.
This looks like so much fun and I know that Beck and Hayden had a great time on the water
I may have passed on this (due to my fear of heights) but it does look like they had fun
Here are a few of Conquistadors drink Recipes that I found at the end of the book, maybe you'll make one while enjoying the story. Paloma
