Book: Screwdrivered
Series: Cocktail #3
Author: Alice Clayton

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?-Goodreads

Review: Ah Viv Franklin, can I visit Mendocino and hang out with you? I liked everything about this book. It was fun, steamy and had me chuckling. Viv Franklin has tons of spunk and I loved watching her spar with Clark the librarian. Equally funny were her interactions with Hank, the sexy cowboy. If you are looking for a fun series this summer, I highly recommend the first three Cocktail books. 

Grade: 4.5/5
