  • Carol [Goodreads Addict]
    Whiskey Chaser is book one in the brand new series, Bootleg Springs, by both Lucy Score and Claire Kingsley. I’ve read several of Claire’s books but this is my first time with Lucy. So let me say this first…WOW WOW WOW! This book was amazing. I loved it from the first page until the last. It is everything I hoped it would be and so much more!! There are going to be six books in all, each about a different couple but with one mystery running...

    If you liked Becoming A Vincent by C. M Owens, you'll love Whiskey Chaser!
  • Jilly
    This is set in West Virginia, but it could almost be set in any small town in the South. It has all the southiness you could ever want. "Grab some flip flops and let's go!""I don't own any flip flops."She goggled at me like I'd just confessed to hating babies. This is maybe not known as well as so many other Southern eccentricities, but we wear flip flops for everything. If we are going to a fancy restaurant and need to wear a dress, we will wear...

    *** Life was short, and orgasms were great. *** Such a cool heroine! Loved her!I’m a fan of strong and spunky women, and this one didn’t disappoint.Scarlett made this book for me. Floved her sass! "I don’t see much point in sittin’ around keepin’ my mouth shut. Life’s too short." No one is perfect and this heroine wasn’t either, but she was definitely soooo much better that the average they sell us as a female character in CR. SOOOO...

    I'm doing a happy dance...A Goodreads friend recommended Whiskey Chaser and I'm absolutely STOKED that she did. There is NOTHING better than starting a new series, trying new to me authors and having SUCCESS with a sub-genre that normally drives me BONKERS!! There were happy dances and big goofy grins at the end of this one. I LOVE FINDING A GOOD READ!!I normally struggle with small-town romance but this was nothing like the ones I've tried in th...

    Did ya bring snacks? Cause I'm chatty today, just warning ya. Here we go. Scarlett Bodine manages things, like her own handyman service, as well as her overprotective brothers. They’ve just buried their father, and their relationship (with him and each other) are most definitely complicated. But it’s Bootleg, West Virginia, so what do you do? You have a bonfire. Devlin McAllister has been hiding out, aka licking his wounds, at his grandma’s...

    I recently started reading Lucy Score's Books. This is my 4th. I was looking forward to this book's release. It's co-authored by Claire Kingsley. The cover suggests a light hearted romance. For the most part, that's true. I do like the little bite that it has to it-mainly due to the heroine, Scarlett Bodine. She is an "everywoman". She's not just handy, she's got mad mechanical skills. She owns her own business-mainly home repair jobs for the tow...

    3,5 stars This book is the first book in a “small town romance series” that involves many elements such as comedy, romance, passion & mystery.***********************************************The series will be made up of 6 books and the mystery will be solved in Book 6. It feels like forcing readers to buy all 6 books to learn how the mystery is solved – nope, not cool. Well, anyways, the mystery isn’t something I was interested in at all b...

    This book is a lot of fun! I love the town of Bootleg Springs and it’s crazy residents! Scarlett and Devlin are great together! I like Scarlett’s brothers too, but I might skip Gibson’s book because he is supposedly a manwhore The crime mystery was a little out of place to me, but I still loved the book! This book is a lot of fun! I love the town of Bootleg Springs and it’s crazy residents! Scarlett and Devlin are great together! I like...

    Super cute. I would have liked a little bit more communication but I do get where they were coming from, at least (this is not always the case).

    I don't care what you have on the top of your TBR. Shove that shit aside and read THIS.God I laughed so hard so many times. I was also trying to work out the plot and on the edge of my seat. Speaking of seats. Hot! My couch was in danger of needing a cleaning a few times! Woah!Step aside chocolate and peanut butter. Lucy Score and Claire Kingsley have replaced you as a match made in heaven.
  • Mandi Schreiner
    First of all, a huge thank you to Samantha, who recommended this book to me on twitter. I have never heard of this author and this is a start of a new series, and I am on board. Such a fun, sexy book with a great heroine.Devlin is a Maryland state representative, married with a plan to make it to Washington, D.C. But when he discovers his wife is having an affair, and punches the guy, he is labeled a disgrace by political society. After ending hi...
  • Jacob Proffitt
    The first half of this was enormously fun. I laughed enough that Melissa started giving me side-eye. The banter is great, sure, but the town and people popped as well. And yeah, some of the laughs were manufactured but the authors pulled it together with just the right amount of surprise to keep it fresh (and funny) anyway.And it doesn't hurt that both protagonists were delightful. Scarlett is engaging as the down-home, unabashedly redneck girl w...
  • Maria
    So I needed some time to write this review because I want to confess that initially this book with this plot is not my typical read. Fortunately I had to rethink about my assumptions because this book was freaking unbelievable. I admit everything took me by surprise, Scarlett is an independent and strong woman who wants to have fun and mostly is not a prude. She is the only girl of a strange family and when she encounters her temporary next door ...

    Moonshine and bonfiresOh, my stars, I loved this book!When Devlin McCallister arrives at his grandmother’s house in Bootleg Springs, disgraced and stunned from a spectacularly imploded career, he wants nothing more than to hide out and lick his wounds. Scarlett Bodine has other plans though. And you don’t say no to Scarlett. And so, begins their friendship. The city lawmaker and the country Jill of all trades. This has all the elements that L...
  • KathyB
    It took me a while to get through this book, but I liked it. It wasn't a page turner for me, it was easy to put down even though I loved the goofy characters. The large cast was endearing, very loveable and dysfunctional. Reminded me of the Winston Brothers series by Penny Reid and Becoming A Vincent by C.M. Owens. I enjoy small town stories so I'm looking forward to reading more, next up Sidecar Crush.This can be read as a standalone, but there ...

    Really good. First one in the Bootleg Springs series.The main characters are fantastic and the second characters also. Not everything is resolved in this first book (a missing person case from many years back pops up) so I will definitely keep on reading this series. This couples story is done and we get a new one in the next book and hopefully some more insight into the missing person case. Really good. First one in the Bootleg Springs series....
  • Raine
    Not bad for the first book in the seriesThis book is the first in the series and actually pretty good. There is a mystery that looks like it may be the arc for the entire series. I like the female main character, but the authors kinda made her seem a little too much like a small-town hick or redneck, something that didn't sit to well with me. The also made the male main character a bit is a wuss.

    Reviewer note: As I know cheating is an issue with so many people, I’m letting you know that the hero in this story is in the process of a divorce from his cheating soon to be ex-wife. He does start a relationship with the heroine prior to the divorce, but for all intents and purposes his marriage is over and less than a month of being dissolved.I was intrigued by this series, the minute I read the blurb for Whiskey Chaser and because I adored ...
  • Brandi
    I just absolutely loved this. Everything from the town to the characters to the mystery. I. Loved. It. How often can you read a book where everything about it makes you feel good? Welcome to Bootleg Springs, a town so rich in tradition you'll almost choke on it. The town with the softball games that leaves everyone too drunk to play. The town known for it's Moonshine.Whiskey Chaser was that feel good book that had you rooting for the couple from ...
  • Jennifer
    2.25 stars. I think I’ve outgrown my enjoyment of Lucy Score’s books. I’d also forgotten that she writes from the first person POV and I rarely find that narrative style enjoyable. The dialogue and small town vibe come off as a little immature and silly. Maybe I’m just not into the chick lit genre. Everything seemed like it was trying so hard to be funny: all the overreacting to situations, the dialect, and the raunchy humour was just not...
  • Jaime
    I’m so thrilled for this new series from Lucy! Small town - check. Broody, grumpy males - check. A kickass heroine - check. A town chicken - check. This book is laugh out loud funny yet there are underlying deeper complex issues that surface in the Bodine family and the town! Scarlett, the youngest sibling - the caretaker, the fixer. She is AMAZING! I love her feistiness, her need to live love to the fullest and her crazy antics!! Devlin didn...
  • Anna
    It was good on first part, and it was so long and boring the other half....The MCs were ok. Loved the heroine.No cheating, no OP scenes.A bit OW drama, only a bit
  • Carol
    4+++ stars.Had this on my to read list for way too long. I have enjoyed both Claire Kingsley's and Lucy Score's solo works before and now I can see that these two authors collaborate really well together also.I am definitely down for reading the rest of this series. Maybe I will review this in more detail after I read the next one - "Sidecar Crush".It had a whole lot of crazy, but that only made me smile a lot while reading.Fast read and I could ...

    Rating - Is infinity an option?Okay, you need this book in your life. Not only is it perfect, it is the start of something absolutely amazing! Lucy Score and Claire Kingsley couldn’t be a more perfect team. As soon as they announced they would be co-authoring this new series, I knew it was going to be epic! And, let me tell you, I was not disappointed in the least! This book has it all! Fun setting, amazing characters, romance, heat, and a myst...

    OMG, what a freaking AMAZING book! I have to admit, this is not usually more type of read but WOW! I’m so absolutely smitten with Whiskey Chaser!! Welcome to Bootleg Springs!Scarlett is an strong, independent woman who is a business owner and just tells it like it is. With three overbearing older brothers, Scarlett knows what she wants. And that is the man who is hiding out next door in his grandmother’s house. Devlin is laying low after a sc...

    I loved this story! So many great characters, so many laugh out loud moments, a little bit of angst, a 10 year old cold case that has come back to touch the Bodine family and such a great love story! Scarlett is a hilarious, kick ass, lovable, only girl in a family with 4 interesting, overbearing and single brothers. Devlin is a sweet and sexy man who has come to Bootleg Springs to lay low after an incident in his home life that affected his care...
  • J Williams
    I loved this book! Scarlett is amazing! Raised by her older brothers, she's a sexy tomboy who is full of sass. Devlin comes to town to hide while the scandal that threatens his career blows over. He is not prepared for the whirlwind that is Scarlett. These two are perfect together! They are so different but compliment each other beautifully. This book is funny, sexy, and has some fantastic secondary characters. I loved the mystery surrounding Cal...
