Fiction. Romance. Humor (Fiction.) HTML:Looking for the perfect mix of smart, sexy, and sassy? Mai Tai'd Up continues New York Times bestselling author Alice Clayton's Cocktail series, which began with Wallbanger and continued with Rusty Nailed and Screwdrivered.
/> The gossip mill in the seaside community of Monterey is churning about Chloe Patterson, the newcomer who is starting a sanctuary for rescued pit bulls. It's rumored that she's a former beauty queen (true) who ditched her fiancé the morning of their wedding (also true). And that while she's not looking for a new man, the good-looking local veterinarian has his eye on her. Absolutely, positively true.
When Lucas Campbell isn't at the family veterinary clinic, he's paddle boarding in Monterey Bay. Recently single, he's definitely not in the market for a new relationship, but he still can't resist taking a second, third, and fourth look at the recent arrival of Miss Golden State.
Neither Lucas nor Chloe has any interest in being tied down. Being tied up, however??now there's a thought. But are a few Mai Tais, a moonlit night, and the music of Frank Sinatra enough to allow them both to forget their past? Let's hope Ol' Blue Eyes knows what he's doing.
Mix one part tiki, one part kinky, and a splash of old black magic matchmaking, and it's time to be . . . Mai Tai'd Up… (mais)

11/19/20. After rereading this, I find I’m less inclined to forgive the H. After the fair, his reasons were “poor me.” He never brought up that he just left her there with no ride.

And his punishment of her was just too much. Her lie was not bad enough for him to hang on to the anger for almost 3 months. And, his humiliation of her was soul damaging.

I just felt like the author was too forgiving to the H. ( )

The Story:

While I was listening to this book I greatly enjoyed it. I love the back and forth between Chloe and Lucas. I had an extreme dislike of Chloe’s mother. She comes around a bit at the end but really what a witch. I’m amazed at what Chloe is able to do for the pitt bulls through her rescue. That might be my favorite part of the book.

A few days after reading I’m not left with much of an impression from the book. It was bad. It wasn’t great. Just a pleasant way to spend a few hours.

The Random Thoughts: ( )

So the first book in this series (Cocktail) was okay, the second was meh, and I liked the third one a lot. The fourth book in this series, Mai Taid Up was just okay.

The main character, Chloe Patterson on the day of her wedding realizes that she is about to make a colossal mistake. Realizing that she is not in love with her almost husband she retreats to her father's ranch in Monterey and decides to leap at the chance to set up a pit bull rescue shelter. She meets one of the local vets, Lucas Campbell and starts to wonder what it would feel like to kiss and be with Lucas.

Chloe's voice in this book is very unique. She has an aversion to saying the "F" word so also says "fudge". Previously a pageant girl and finally winner of Miss Golden State she is used to always doing and saying the right thing. It was great seeing her grow out of her shell and becoming an individual.

I would say that the love scenes unlike with Wallbanger and Rusty Nailed were pretty by the numbers. I found myself skimming to just get to the end. To me the romance portion was not that important since Alice Clayton made me care more about Chloe as an individual. I really wish that we had seen her stand on her own two feet and not decided to fall in lust/love with the first male she laid eyes on after her busted wedding. Readers quickly find out that Chloe has only been with one man (her previous fiancee) and it would have been interesting to have her explore her sexuality.

Additionally, there is a plot contrivance that ultimately didn't work which I think was just thrown in so we had some tension in the book .

Also, unlike with previous books I don't think I smiled or cracked a smile except for an airport scene (and that was only because the TSA agents were not at all down for people acting stupid at the airport).

Finally, the dialogue between Chloe and Lucas just got annoying. Both Chloe and Lucas lapse into Rat Pack speech and listen to Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin (due to Chloe's father's home not being decorated since the 60s/70s) that believe me got old quick. I was tired of Chloe saying fudge all of the time and the "chickie babie" nonsense between the two of them just set my teeth on edge.

The ending of the book tried to recreate the ending of Wallbanger but it really didn't work for me at all.

There are some scenes between my least favorite couple of the series, Sophie and Neil and I can only hope and pray they don't show up that much in the next book. I recommend to fans of the series since the next book in the series, Last Call comes out in January and that is going to complete the series. ( )
