Three friends walk into a bar . . . One walks out the fake girlfriend of a hot, bearded Scotsman.
Fannin McGuire is up for promotion at Tate and Cane Enterprises, but first she has to make it through her stepsister’s wedding. To Fannin’s ex. Yep. Her ex-fiancé is about to be her new brother-in-law. One big happy family. And lucky her, she also gets to work with him.
While Fannin is putting all of her energy into her career, her ex is putting all of his energy into making her life hell. Just when Fannin is sure she’ll be attending the wedding without a plus one, in walks Jasper James to save the day. He’s the bartender at the Iron Flask, the account she’s trying to land, and everything she didn’t know she needed or wanted. Before Fannin knows what’s happening, Jasper is playing knight in shining armor and she likes it. And him. A lot. With his smooth Scottish accent, ridiculously good looks, and that beard? She doesn’t stand a chance.
Jasper isn’t in the habit of rescuing anyone. But when Fannin is confronted by her ex about her lack of a date for his upcoming nuptials, Jasper can’t help but step in. Her wild hair, violet eyes, and killer legs have him doing a few things he normally wouldn’t. Never mind that he shouldn’t be getting involved with the woman in charge of making the bar a global success.
Their fake relationship becomes more real than either thought it would. Now they’re at the mercy of their feelings when truths are twisted, and the lies don’t taste as smooth as the whisky.
4.5 Star Review by Ashley
Yes, yes YES!!! What a fun and sexy little read from Mandi Beck this was.
I adored Fannin and all of her sass. But she was also so classy. She handled the ridiculous situation she found herself in the middle of much more gracefully than I ever would have. It didn't hurt that she had a beast of a man helping her out.
WHEW that Jasper James. Tall, whisky loving, bearded and with an accent. AND what's even better was just how much he adored Fannin- wild hair and all. There was no denying the insta-lust and the feelings that developed as they spent time together.
When some less than savory characters tried to weasel (because that's what they were- weasels) them apart by being uncouth, it was Jasper who stepped up big time. GAH!!! I absolutely LOVED how this ended. Twisted was a short, super sexy and quite funny read. Fingers crossed to see more of this clan in the future!
