pouring liquid fire into the willing throats of patrons as they let loose at
the local bar?
I may be known as the town party girl, but in reality I’m this close to
my dream of opening my own bar – McConaugheys. Yes, it will be named after the
acclaimed actor. What can I say? I’m a sucker for that sexy Texan.

a story to our past and it’s not a pretty one.
So, now, here I am, chained to him for the summer like a hardened criminal,

The Abandon Collection
This was my first book by Jeannine Colette and I really enjoyed it! Nothing too over the top here, just a sweet and sexy small-town romance featuring one hot cop and a feisty heroine.Leah is determined to own the bar where she works and I loved that aspect of the book. The author also seems to have a wicked sense of humor which shows in the funny banter and the hilarious Matthew McConaughey references. Leah lost her first love to an overdose, and he also happened to be Adam’s best friend – Adam, the rigid, by-the-book policeman who seems determined to punish Leah for her past mistakes.
Adam is charitable and gorgeous and kind and protective. He has made it his mission in life to rid the town of narcotics. When Leah is sentenced to community service under Adam’s supervision, the sparks begin to fly.
Even though the setting is in the Midwest, this story has almost a sassy, Southern feel to it, reminiscent of Abbi Glines and Harper Sloan’s early books. I love a blue-collar hero and Luke fits the bill perfectly!
Adam was cold and harsh and downright mean for much of the story, until Leah begins to break through to him. The chemistry between these two was HOT HOT HOT! I applaud Ms. Colette for her strong and sassy heroine and absolutely loved Leah. She wasn’t just a party girl and earns the respect of everyone around her. ‘Wrecked’ is a funny, sexy, small-town romance that is a great way to spend a few hours.
