My Coyote Ugly Life by Jessica Spoon Blog Tour

“How on earth do I get myself in these situations? I swear it’s like a never ending bad dream. One of all my mistakes that continuously bite me in my size ten ass.”

Azaria ‘Ree’ Gable had her one experience with heartbreak and that was enough for her. She’s perfectly satisfied with her ‘One Month Rule’ and doesn’t need her life changing anytime soon.

When circumstances take her back home, she learns things have changed…
A lot…

First and foremost being with the complete and astonishing overhaul and revamp of the Belton Police Department, where apparently the application was changed to state ‘Ugly Men Need Not Apply’ and the only requirement is ‘How Well Do You Look In This Uniform?’

Ree unexpectedly catches the eye of the new ‘gina-quiver inducing Chief of Police Grayson Cole, which starts an endless game of cat and mouse.

Will Ree let go of her misconceptions about relationships and allow Grayson to show her how beautiful life can really be?

It’s now six o’clock and I’m sitting down to try to get ahead on a little work for an author friend of mine that wants me to help her come up with some graphics. I just get my program pulled up when the doorbell rings.

I walk out of my office, turn and head to the door. I look out the peephole and see Chief Cole standing there. I immediately duck down, because everyone knows that cops can see through those little holes. It’s some kind of special tactical training they have to go through at the academy.

I, ever… so… quietly, walk backwards down the hall. Then there is a pounding at the door (you know the one I’m talking about. Cop Move 2. The three quick pounds on the door that are able to wake the dead.). I freeze and don’t breathe for a moment. Just in case.

“Ree! Open the damn door!” he says, sounding exasperated.

I continue my mission impossible escape back into my office. My desk faces the front windows, so I covertly move to the side that has the string to close the blinds. I plaster my back against the wall and, slowly, pull on the string. The blinds are on the opposite side from the string, and they are almost all the way to me when a face appears on the other side of the glass next to me.

“Aaaaeeee!” I scream out, hands flailing, ducking down and throwing my hands over my head.

“Ree,” he says seriously; his voice muffled through the glass, “Open the damn door.”

I lift my head and look up at him through the window, “No.” I’m pretty proud of the fact that my voice comes out strong and defiant, despite the fact that I totally freaked out.


“No!” I stand up and put my hands on my hips. “You can’t make me.” I grab the string and close the blinds the rest of the way, then go back to my desk, sit down and decide to get back to work.

Except it’s kind of hard, knowing he’s just on the other side of the window…

Nope. Back to work.

I bring up a couple pictures and begin to manipulate them. I push away all thoughts of Chief Panty Melter and begin to work diligently. I look at the clock on my computer, after what feels like an hour, and realize it’s only been two minutes. I look back at my double monitors; I haven’t done anything other than stare at the pictures. I can’t freaking concentrate!

Fuck it!

I get up and walk over to the window. I pull the blinds apart and deftly look out.


He’s not there.

I open them further and look all around my front yard. There is no trace of him.


I mean, good. Yeah. It’s good news.

“Looking for something?”

“What the fuck!” I scream, spinning around, my hand flying to my chest. Chief Panty Melter is leaning against the wall, arms crossed, smiling at me. “How the hell did you get in here?!” I demand.

He tilts his head back, “Back door was unlocked,” he answers.

“So, you… you just came right in?” I demand, my voice a little weak. Dammit.

“Well,” he raises his brows, looks down at himself and the fact that he is very much in my house, then looks back up at me, “yeah.”

“That’s a B&E and you’re a cop!”


“And?” I jerk my head back. “And?” I demand, getting closer to him and in his face, “You can’t just break into someone’s house!” I screech, stomping my feet and holding my fists tight to my sides, arms straight.

He moves quick. Really quick. One second, I’m in his face yelling, the next he has my back against the wall, his body holding mine in place and his hands resting against the wall on either side of my head.

His eyes roam over my face with an intensity I don’t recognize.

“Fuck,” he says quietly. “Has anyone ever told you how unbelievably sexy you are when you’re mad?”

I blink.

I blink again.

One more time.

Did I just hear him right?

“What?” I breathe out in shock.

“Baby, I’ve never been more turned on than I am at this exact fucking moment.”

Ree lives her life the only way she knows how. To keep herself from ever being hurt again, once in her life was enough. After years of one night stands and a few relationships that didn't last longer than a month, she moves back home to help her mom after she had a stroke. When she meets Chief Cole. She met him a few nights before and can't believe that he is in her hometown. And he wants more than a one night stand with her. He wants a relationship that will last more than a month. This is a great story that will have you laughing and crying. It is funny, heartfelt and with a little suspense thrown in. I was glued from the beginning and to the very last word.

This is a really good, fun story, with a great plot which I enjoyed a lot. However, I have to admit that the over description of stuff, and people did distract me somewhat. I am afraid that I don't really care about the layout of a room, unless it impacts on the story; I don't care about the colour of someone's clothing every time they get dressed; and I definitely don't need everyone's life story, unless it comes out in conversation. These things did not stop me enjoying what is a funny, cute and sexy book. The characters are vibrant, entertaining and the drama is described well. But you should be aware of the writing style, in case it is an issue for you. Don't miss out on a good story though, just be patient!

At first Ree got on my nerves BIG time, but then I fell in love with her. Chief Cole….how could you NOT instantly fall in love with him? Holy smokes! The whole police department was a dream! This story was funny, sweet and had just a little drama to it. It was refreshing and fun and I can’t wait to see what is in store for the rest of the series. I only hope we will see more Ree and Grayson.

Characters: The characters were well written and believable.
Sex: HOT!
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: This is the first in the series
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
Not your typical romance by any means of the imagination. Azaria "Ree" Gable is a twenty-something living her life with no regrets. Having experienced heartbreak in college, she vowed to never let herself go through that again. Enter the "One Month Rule," thirty days or less for any man who catches her fancy. Her friends give her hell about her rule, but it’s worked for her quite a while... Now, if she could just get all the kinks out of her "morning after" escape routine. She just doesn't understand why guys have to be so ... clingy.

Moving back to her hometown to help her parents after her mom suffers a mini-stroke, Ree is determined not to let small town life get to her. Everyone knowing her business is just par for the course, but thankfully her besties still live in town and will help ease her transition. Cue the new police force and Chief Grayson Cole. Who would have thought a small town police department would be made of up ex-Special Forces soldiers who were drool worthy even after a 48 hour stake out.

I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read what happens next in Belton. The author did a great job of introducing the secondary characters and making us wonder whose story will be next.

My first book, Darkness Deserved, released July/2013. It is the first book in the Shattering the Darkness Series.

I'm crazy and love my friends, family and booze. Yes. Booze. (Don't judge me.)

I used to never read when I was growing up. My mother always tried to get me to read and I wanted no part in it. I figured why read when it's going to be a movie. (Yes, like I said crazy.)

Well a few years ago I jumped on the Twilight band wagon. I've always loved supernatural movies and when I saw the previews I knew I wanted to see it. And see it I did. I immediately went out and bought the books and became hooked.

They came to me at a very special time in my life.

I discovered I loved to read and found my nitch in the paranormal and romance genre. I started a book club with a cousin and all of a sudden these thoughts kept assaulting my brain.

So I wrote them down. Then, deciding that I wanted to write, I contacted some wonderfully amazing women who helped me through the process. This is the result.

I love Breccan and Harper and hope you all do as well. The book is dark and graphic. It pushes the boundaries and will make you cry, (hopefully) laugh and (hopefully) fall in love.
