Review: Tequila Tequila by Emma Hart
Emma Hart delivers the good, the bad and the ugly with Tequila Tequila. Now, before you go reading into that statement, let me explain. This is the story of best friends who cross the line into lovers. And it gets awkward and messy and oh, so freaking good. So yes, there are cringe worthy parts but there are also uber sweet and crazy sexy parts too. All in all? AMAZING story with sensational characters.
Story line: Aspen and Luke are BFFs. They have been forever. Then one night, all of that history is challenged. Because, well, tequila. They consumed an exorbitant amount of the liquid courage and apparently that's all it took for the straw to break the camels back. Because next thing you know they're kissing and then clothes are coming off and well, you see where this is going. The twist you probably didn't see coming? (relax, it's in the synopsis, so this isn't a spoiler) It's the worst laundry they've ever had. YIKES. You would think two people who are as comfortable as they are around each other, that the dirty deed would be at least super vanilla good. But no, it's legit something out of a horror film. Okay, maybe not that bad... but it's pretty awful. The question is, do they remember it? What happens if they do? What happens if they don't? Where do they go from here? Are you curious? GOOD. Now go read the book and find out! ;) My two cents? Aspen and Luke are three things. 1) hilarious 2) adorable 3) deliciously steamy.
Interaction: Since our two main characters are BFFs, obviously their communication skills are second to none. They communicate with their words, their actions and everything else you can think of. They practically read each others minds - practically.What was refreshing for me, as the reader, was their ability to work through their differences. For the first time in their lives, they don't know how to be around one another and to read their inner struggles and turmoil over what everything means, their situation became very REAL. I loved the realism and the way the story literally sucked me in from the very beginning. This was some of the best word building I've ever read.
Laundry: So, obviously laundry round 1 was not so great. Yet it kind of was. Because for once, the first time two people slept together, it wasn't all rainbows and kittens. It was REAL. No joke y'all, the first time me and the hubs had laundry there was excessive alcohol involved and there was and a quite similar outcome. But hey, we're married so obviously it is possible to bounce back from that. LOL. Oh, right you want to know about the other laundry. Well, let's just say... things get a heck of a lot steamy and there are quite a few toe curling scenes.
Depth: Is this book strictly about two friends who sleep together? Have you read Emma Hart before? Of course not! I won't give anything away, but what I will say is that Luke's family is truly the underlying heart of this story. I adore his grandmother so much. Like seriously, I want her to be my grandma. Luke's entire family, though, is incredible. They create a jealous-worthy atmosphere. And a home that one day, I hope my kids can say is very similar.
This book was everything. I laughed so much, and I even shed a tear or two. Aspen and Luke are the ultimate power couple and I seriously could not get enough of them.
