Review: You and Tequila by Crystal Donahue

You and Tequila


Crystal Donahue


One tequila, two tequila, three tequila… Score!

Cassel Bailey's life hasn't exactly turned out how she planned. Between the tragic death of her parents, a brother that practically despises her, and working her way through nursing school alone, she's learned to stay guarded
, relying only on herself and her friends for love and support. Over time they’ve become her surrogate family. So when one drunken night at the bar lands her in bed with her close friend, Will Tanner, it threatens to change their otherwise platonic relationship forever. Life as she knows it suddenly begins spinning out of control as she struggles to understand her conflicted emotions.
Guided by her authoritative best friend, Tina, and her quirky next-door neighbor, Rita, Cassel must decide between fighting to keep her friendship with Will alive, or going with Plan B and risking it all for something more.

Just when she thinks she knows what she wants, Cassel is bullied into caring for a patient that, unbeknownst to her, played an important role in her sad past. The stunning secret this person reveals about her former lover, Dane, threatens to open up previously healed wounds and leads Cassel to question not only the career she loves, but where
her heart truly lies. Everything she thought she knew about life, love, and promises is shattered like an empty bottle hitting the floor.

One thing is for certain, when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade... when life gives you limes, you grab some salt and a bottle of tequila and learn to take it one shot at a time.

My Review:

You and Tequila...what a good book and a catchy title! This was yet another one I had to read straight through.

I simply adored the characters as Ms. Donahue made them very 'real'. The situation that Cass finds herself in with her best guy friend of all people, is a scenario that i'm sure alot of women could possibly relate to if they've ever had a really good guy friend. What would happen if you just went one step too far?

I liked Cassel right from the start trying not to feel sorry for this woman who last her parents and had a brother who hated her. She'd learned to take care of herself and handle things regardless of the situation. That is until too much tequila lands her in her best friend's bed.

Filled with a mix of sad moments, definite relationship chemistry and some funny moments makes this book an easy to recommend enjoyable read!

Worthy of my 4 leaves !!
