Lucy Score does it again!! I LOVED this book and couldn’t put it down!! It was full of ALL the feels and the authors trademark humour. I didn’t want it to end.
The summer fling you’ll never forget heats up with Jonah and Shelby, as the central characters. I really enjoyed watching these two navigate their feelings for each other as well as deciding on what they want out of life.
This story comes with a massive sense of family. Not just with the immediate families but the whole town of Bootleg Springs. Some of the best moments come when the Bodine’s and the rest of Bootleg are together.
The mystery surrounding the disappearance of Callie Kendall is blown wide open. Several times I audibly gasped as a massive secret is shared from an unlikely source. The danger increases with each piece of information uncovered and I CAN’T WAIT for the final instalment in this saga but I also don’t want it to be over.
Such a great story. The anticipation for the mystery to be solved is fantastic. I love this town and the characters in it. So many laugh out loud moments. Jonah is swoony and Shelby such a sweetheart it was lovely to enjoy their journey to HEA.
The Bootleg Springs series is really a lot of fun to read. Gin Fling is book 5, and features Jonah Bodine and Shelby Thompson as the main characters. Jonah - personal trainer, all round awesome guy and total hottie, nice to everyone EXCEPT Shelby. Shelby is an adorable, very smart nerd who finds herself getting the cold shoulder from Jonah.
Shelby and Jonah get *Scarlett Bodined* and end up living together, much to Jonah's disgust (to start with, anyway). Lots of sweet and funny moments between these 2 as the town, especially Scarlett, do their best at matchmaking the pair. I love Scarlett, she's such a fun character. She is so sassy and full of attitude. She is best described by Jonah, " She was unpredictable. And that made her dangerous. She was also a biter".
The mystery of Callie Kendall that has carried across all the books really stepped up to another level in this book. I was so excited reading all the new information that came to light, can't wait to see how it all ends up in the final book in the series.
I am honestly so in love with this little town I want to live there!!
And i'm even more in love with Jonah and Shelby. These to were so cute together. They obviously didn't start off on the right foot with the misunderstanding about what Shelby was doing in this town but with the interference from our girl Scarlett they started a friendship but they couldn't fight there attraction for each other for long. There epic summer fling turned into something real and beautiful and I loved every minute of there story.
The mystery behind the Callie disappearance is come to light and I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know every detail from a source I was blown away by. I need to know more!
I cannot wait to get my hands on Gibson's story and get more from this family its going to be a blast!
I have truly enjoyed reading all of the books in this series and can't believe I have to wait a few weeks to get my hands on the next and last one, especially when I've read the first five books in the last 3 days. This is an amazing series and is probably my new favourite! I truly commend the authors on this series because they are the perfect combination of romance, tight knit rural small-town communities, family and friends, with the added mystery of Callie. I love the way that with each book we get to know more of the characters in the last books and also new ones. 200 stars - definitely recommend!
I treated myself to re-reading the first four Bootleg Springs books before starting Gin Fling. It was so enjoyable to reacquaint myself with the Bodines and the rest of the Bootleggers, then launch into Jonah and Shelby’s tender story. I loved Shelby’s grit and Jonah’s willingness to surrender to his growing feelings for her.
