Casey Markham is a man-eater in a rut. Swearing off relationships may keep her heart safe, but she's beginning to question if her casual flings will ever leave her satisfied. She's wondering if it's finally time to let go of the past and stop letting history control her future.
Bad boy biker, Tenn Jennings can't get Casey off his mind. A chance encounter with the beautiful blond has left its mark, and now he's determined to prove her wrong about everything she thought she knew about men.
It’s safe to say… Casey Markham has met her match.
I've read only one of the other books in the Last Call series (Sugar on the Edge). It was my first Sawyer Bennett book, and it most definitely wasn't the last. Every single one I pick up is impossible to put down. The characters always leap off the page and pull you in with so many emotions. Shaken, Not Stirred definitely fit all the above.
Casey is a girl who doesn't want to get emotionally invested in a relationship, so she always keeps men at arm's length. It's not only to protect her, but them, too. When she meets Tenn, he wants to make her change her views about love and relationships. It doesn't take long until Tenn gets under her skin, or for the two of them to be in so deep that it would be hard to go back to before. It's not easy to let your guard down when you've been trying to keep your heart from getting broken again, but this might be the time for Casey to open up to the chance of it. Is she willing to take that risk?
Shaken, Not Stirred was an intensely beautiful story. Casey's struggles took some time, but when she lets Tenn in, it becomes the most lovely promise of something real. There was depth--to both Casey and Tenn, not to mention their lives outside of each other. I love seeing a couple work through all those things and still stay solid. Definitely a recommended read!
