Release Post and Review – Shaken, Not Stirred by Sawyer Bennett
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.
SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED can be read as a stand-alone.
I’ve been waiting for Casey’s story for a long time. I could not imagine what kind of man would finally tame her wild ways. What I had in my mind is absolutely NOTHING like Tenn at all!
Casey has been the wild girl of the gang since the beginning, no relationships, no commitments, a one and done kind of girl. Unless of course you keep her interests long enough for a second date. When the book starts, I though she was really going to end up with Richard, the NASCAR guy. HA! Let’s just say that Tenn gave Casey a run for her money and he heart never looked back.
Tenn ending up in the Outer Banks was completely accidental. So was meeting Casey, and he knew from the first look she was ‘it’, he had to have her. Well, in true Sawyer Bennett fashion, twists, turns and batty as shit ex’s rear their ugly heads and throw in a teenage daughter and you have the perfect book!
Totally loved this from the beginning to the very last sentence. I’m sad to see the end of this series, as it is one of my favorites of Sawyer’s ever! That just means that she has to add more to the Cold Fury series cause you all know I love me some HOT Hockey players!!!
Sawyer Bennett has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I haven’t read that many of her books, but everything I’ve read, I have loved. Shaken, Not Stirred is certainly no exception. I knew from prior experience with Casey that it was going to take a special kind of guy to break through her defenses. And man oh man, is Tenn ever that guy!
What can I say about Tenn? Tenn f—ing Jennings. Cowboy. Marine. Motorcycle man. Reluctant gazillionaire. Doting dad. Hot as hell dirty talker. But aside from all that goodness, he’s caring and compassionate…and oh so patient when it comes to helping Casey through her issues. There is just no way to keep from falling for Tenn. We’ve got another book boyfriend to add to the Sawyer Bennett collection!
One of the things I love the most about the way Ms. Bennett writes is the quality of her characters. They do not fit any stereotypical molds – Casey could have been written in a way that would have been like so many other characters we have all read before…the wounded, broken girl continuously making snap judgments and poor decisions. I so appreciate that Casey was smart and thought things through in almost every situation in which she found herself. I find myself wanting to cheer when characters are written against expectation and Ms. Bennett does not disappoint.
This is the final book in the Last Call series, but there are plenty of Sawyer Bennett books out there to keep me going. =)
