“Excuse me, can I have a strawberry martini?” I looked up from
making a mojito and locked eyes with Sparkles himself. He generally went to other bartenders, but he
knew if he asked me, I’d get his drink to him right away. He knew how much I wanted him, and I
suspected he used that to his advantage.
“Sure thing, sweetheart. Let me get this one out, and I’ll get you
yours.” I winked and was met with an eye roll.
After passing the mojito off to the customer, they handed me their
number. I slipped the piece of paper into my back pocket and quickly went over to Sparkles. He stood,
eyes wandering over the place while I made his drink. He wore an emerald-green shirt that
shimmered when he moved. I couldn’t see his pants, but I had no doubt they matched. His fingers
were painted black and he tapped them along the bar. His always hot-pink hair stood out like nothing
else, and his face was done up to compliment it all. I had no idea how he did it, but he was a work of
“Here you go.”
He dropped a ten on the bar and said to keep it. “Hang on.” I couldn’t
hear him huff when I stopped him, but I knew he did. “How is this outfit disco?” I gestured to his
“This masterpiece is the epitome of disco. Look at these pants.” He
lifted his leg so gracefully, it was as if he’d done it a million times. Large pieces of what I assumed
were sequins were sewn onto the seams of the pants. They were some sort of fancy bell bottoms.
“And this top? Are you even being serious right now?” He had a martini in one hand, the other on his
hip. “I’m disco inferno up in this shit.”
Holding my hands up in surrender, I smiled and answered, “My
apologies. I can clearly see you’re all about funky town.”
This is the second book in the series and can be read as a standalone. I loved it even more than the first one.
I loved Max and Sparkles together. Their banter is hilarious and the chemistry is off the charts. I’ve been waiting for Max’s story since book 1 and it doesn’t disappoint in the least. The suspense/ mystery plot is based on Sparkles’ past and I don’t want to spoil anything. Just going to say that the ending was so satisfying!
We meet some new characters and a few old ones. But Tank, Sparkles’ teacup poodle, completely stole my heart! He’s so adorable. If you are looking for a book filled with action, intrigue drama and romance, definitely pick this up. I’m really looking forward to Ledger’s book!
