Hiring my brother’s best friend was not on my to-do list.
Neither was he.
Expanding my dirty cocktail bar into food was supposed to be easy, except finding a chef in my little town of Whiskey Key is anything but.
Until Parker Hamilton comes home–bringing his Michelin starred chef’s hat with him.
He has no work. I need someone like him in my new kitchen.
There’s just one problem: I hate his cocky, filthy-mouthed, sexy-as-hell guts.
Even if I might want him. Just a little…
Working for my best friend’s sister? Not on my to-do list.
She’s another story.
Whiskey Key was supposed to be a relaxing vacation, except I haven’t reached the heights I have by lying in a hammock drinking cocktails. So when Raven Archer is desperate for a chef, I offer up my skills.
I’m bored. She needs what I can give her.
Except there’s a problem: I’ve always hated her.
Her and her big, blue eyes, sassy mouth, and killer curves.
If only I didn’t want her.
Mixed Up is a standalone, enemies-to-lovers romance. It’s red-hot and hilarious, so grab a glass and get comfy!
“Good things come from bad decisions.”
“One kiss. that was all it was. One firm yet soft kiss that sent sparks across my skin. One kiss that made me believe in the words he just said to me. One kiss that stirred the feelings I’d shoved away into the wilderness of my mind.”
Oh, Emma Hart! How I adore thee. Seriously, there is nothing better than getting your hands on the latest Emma Hart novel. Mixed Up was a fantastic and entertaining read. It is a hate to love/brother’s best friend romance and I seriously couldn’t get enough of it.
Told from dual points of view, Mixed Up follows the story of Raven and Parker. Raven and Parker’s story had me hooked from the very first page, delivering strong and stubborn characters with a humor only Emma Hart can deliver.
When we first meet up with Raven, she is desperate to find a chef for her expanding cocktail bar. Despite how desperate she is, the last thing she wants to do, is ask Parker Hamilton for help. These two don’t just hate one another, they loathe each other. But, with no good propositions in sight, Raven will have no choice, but to work with the enemy…Parker was supposed to be in Whiskey Key for a much needed vacation. The last thing he expected was to find himself working for his best friends sister. Can these two put their hatred aside and work together? Or will their hate turn into an explosive romance that neither one of them saw coming? You’ll just have to read to find out!
Overall, I really enjoyed Mixed Up. I thought the story-line was a lot of fun and it certainly kept me entertained. I thought Raven was a great character. She was tough and stubborn with a sassy mouth to boot. She also had a big heart and wanted to please those who mattered in her life. And Parker…Well, Parker was kind of Dick and I loved him. He not only had the looks, but the dirty mouth and cocky attitude to go along with it. The hate between the two of them lead to some pretty explosive tension. I couldn’t get enough of their banter and was excited to see where all this tension would take them…..
Mixed Up was a truly fun read. I loved everything about this story from beginning to end. Once again, Emma Hart has delivered a fun story with a lot of heart and delicious humor. I can’t wait to see what story Emma Hart will bring to the table next.
