Tequila and Tingles by Keri Ford

Love doesn’t hang around in the shallow end. You have to dive deep for it.

Tequila shots 1, Beth Revlin 0.

No respectable single mom wakes up in a stranger’s hotel room with no memory of what happened the night before. When Beth does just that, she willingly takes the walk—more like a sprint—of shame, rather than face her humiliation.

Then Mr. One Night Stand turns out to be Mr. New Swim Coach to her five-year-old daughter. Holding her head high and pretending nothing happened seems like a good plan.

Olympic gold medalist Jason Johnson plans to stay in Turtle Pine just long enough to recharge his batteries. But Beth and her painfully shy little girl touch something in the depths of his soul. Besides, he needs to return Beth’s shoes without inciting small-town gossip—and tell her the truth about that night.

Beth can’t deny she’s attracted, but she’s not just guarding her own heart. She’s guarding her children’s hearts as well. If Jason captures them only to walk away, the pain he’ll leave in his wake could be more than she can handle.

Warning: Contains an Olympic swimmer who’s got his strokes down to a science, and a single mom who’s seriously considering jumping into the deep end.

This is the second in a series, and although I haven't read the first one yet, I think I will probably rectify that soon, as this was a sweet, fun read.

For me, this book works because it takes a woman wronged, and gives her a second chance at love, even if she really isn't sure that she dare. The persistence of the male lead gives heart to anyone with a romantic bone in their body and the fact that he is great with her young children...well, the whole town is rooting for this to work out. I loved the small town element, and am sure that once I read book one, even more of it will make me smile – but it was delightful anyway. Both characters give us enough detail that we can see just how conflicted they both are about what is happening – even if for totally different reasons. Both had suffered recently enough to still be raw about the events that hurt them, yet so taken with each other that they couldn't quite stop the inevitable. Some lovely humour, great family times, and honest hot passion combine to make a very readable story.

Thank you Ms. Ford.

Keri Ford brings sexy contemporary romance to the American South. With a sprinkling of men in suits and women in high heels, you’ll most likely find four-wheeler riding, ball cap wearing fellas trying to sweet-talk sundress wearing ladies in Keri’s books. Raised in the country in South Arkansas, Keri shares this flavor of life in her books. Glass of sweet tea at your elbow while you read is not required, but strongly recommended.

Keri is represented by Louise Fury and Victoria Lowes of The Bent Agency. She’s multi-published, including the popular Through the Wall from An Apple Trail Novella Series. Her full length series in Bella Warren, Arkansas continues in 2015 from Lyrical Press. Be on the lookout for a new town—Turtle Pine, Alabama, coming soon!
