Texas Fandango Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway

Hi everyone! Today I have a stop on the Texas Fandango blog tour. There is a review of the book and a giveaway for you all.

Texas Fandango
Texas Montgomery Mavericks
By: Cynthia D’Alba
Samhain Publishing
Releasing February 4th, 2014

KC Montgomery was eleven when she met the love of her life. Of course, seventeen-year-old Drake Gentry didn’t know she existed, but that didn’t stop her girlish fantasies from growing and changing over the years.

Now, after enjoying a front-row seat to his breakup with his latest girlfriend, she’s been handed an all-grown-up fantasy come true—two weeks at the Sand Castle Resort. With him.

Drake most definitely noticed KC a long time ago, but the timing’s never been right. Now that he’s facing a lonely vacation that was supposed to be for two, it seems only natural to accept KC’s offer to fill in. And as far as her terms go… No strings. No expectations. No holds barred. Drake is no fool—he’s all over it.

But once they’re back in Texas there are invisible strings still hanging between them. Strings labeled attraction, affection…even love. And the more they try to untangle the knots, the tighter they’re bound together.

Warning: Beware of sunburns, whirlpool sex and sand in delicate places.

My Review
KC has always been on love with Drake. The timing never worked out good for her to let him know but now she is at the right time and place. She sees his latest girlfriend break up with him and jumps at the chance to be with him. She doesn't let him know how she feels just that she wants to go on vacation with him for two weeks of sun , surf, sex and no strings attached. Drake noticed KC years ago as well and now the timing seems right. While they have a wonderful time on their vacation it's when it's over both are scared to say how they really feel and they want more than a two week trip together. They just have to be brave and open up.

This was a fast sexy read that was very entertaining. The chemistry between KC and Drake is easy to see. Both like each other very much but are afraid to open up with each other. On their vacation they let go and have a very steamy time making you want to have your own pool and hot  tub to have some fun. When they get back home there is a few funny scenes as they try to hide from each other what they feel because each think the other just wanted a fling. I liked how they are awkward at times even after they have done all they have. Drake is a great guy and I liked him from the start. he is clueless at some times but it makes him that much more charming. KC gets the wrong idea a few times and it makes her more real. I liked this charming hot story and hated to see it end. If you like great characters and a steamy read be sure to pick this one up.
