Review of Screwdrivered (Cocktail #3) by Alice Clayton

Screwdrivered (Cocktail #3)  by Alice Clayton


Review: I wasn’t that excited to read this book because I thought it was all new characters and a love triangle. Oh how I was so wrong. I forgot that Viv was introduced in the second book as Simon’s old friend from high school. God I love her.

And the love triangle? Pssh… Nope. It was mostly Viv thinking one guy out of the two was for her, or for her to have a wild ride with…..

Trust me on this, it is no competition. AT ALL.

The humor also did not leave along with the first two books in the series, we even get to see some of our favorite characters. But no Clive. Dang.

The humor is the best in this book I kept giggling in my classes just thinking about what was happening in the book and to the characters. My friends thought I was nuts. But just a little.

I can now not wait for the next book in the series.  I was so sad when this one ended too soon!

5 out of 5 stars.

Summary: Readers back for a third round of the bestselling Cocktail series will enjoy a madcap romantic comedy about bodice ripping and chest heaving, fiery passion and love everlasting. Plus a dash of paperwork filing and horseshi—wait, what?

By day, Viv Franklin designs software programs. By night, Vivian’s a secret romance-novel junkie who longs for a knight in shining armor, or a cowboy on a wild stallion, or a strapping firefighter to sweep her off her feet. And she gets to wear the bodice—don’t forget the bodice.

When a phone call brings news that she’s inherited a beautiful old home in Mendocino, California from a long-forgotten aunt, she moves her entire life across the country to embark on what she sees as a great, romance-novel-worthy adventure. But romance novels always have a twist, don’t they?

There’s a cowboy, one that ignites her loins. Because Cowboy Hank is totally loin-ignition worthy. But there’s also a librarian, Clark Barrow. And he calls her Vivian. Can tweed jackets and elbow patches compete with chaps and spurs? You bet your sweet cow pie.

In Screwdrivered, Alice Clayton pits Superman against Clark in a hilarious and hot battle that delights a swooning Viv/Vivian.

Also within this book, an answer to the question of the ages: Why ride a cowboy when you can ride a librarian? summary from
