Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway for Love Drunk by Libby Rice

I'm so excited for this book! I've been eagerly awaiting its arrival and not it's here! Make sure you check out my review and the amazing giveaway!



Love Drunk Synopsis:
The love that lies built?
Wine importer London Whitley dots her I’s and crosses her T’s. Her meticulous nature insulates her from fears that she might just be crazy, as in certifiably, medically nuts. When her almost ex-boyfriend winds up dead at her hands and she’s soon accused of importing counterfeit wines, London’s carefully constructed world begins to crumble. There’s help to be had, but only in the form of an imposing stranger who threatens her ruin.
Trevor Rathlen is lucky to have escaped his marriage to a murderess alive and merely indebted to men who think the exquisite London Whitley’s innocence is a fa├žade. A computer security specialist by day and hacker by night, Trevor agrees to return the favor owed by learning London’s secrets. The task should be an easy one, except Trevor is short on trust, London is long on lies, and together they battle an infinite attraction.

Review

★★★★ 1/2 stars

My heart broke for Trevor in Art-Crossed Love. That's why I was so excited to see Libby was writing another book and he'd have a shot at his HEA. I'm not going to lie, I was really looking forward to this book and I was really quite happy with the story he got. Was it perfect, no, but it was really close to it.

It hurt to see Trevor this way. He's a lot more closed off and suspecting than he was before, but that's a given considering everything he's been through. I did like how London brought him out of his shell. I loved how he was with her. Even though he was distrusting, he really took her feelings about relationships and attraction to heart. I felt horrible for London too. Not only did she have to deal with the fact her business was in serious trouble, but she'd had to deal with some epic romantic fall out too.

I liked London as much as I felt sorry for her. She's honorable and willing to do what it takes to get to the bottom of what's threatening her livelihood, reputation, and the health of others. I liked how she and her sister depended and defended each other. There were a few revelations that took me by complete surprise. I would've never in a million years have thought they were possible. They certainly shed a new light on things. I also was intrigued by the interaction between London't sister and one of Trevor's friends/bosses. I wonder if there is a story there and the both of them can be redeemed. 

Story wise, I was hooked. There are so many ups and downs and it seems like everyone has a personal agenda they were trying to push. I really enjoyed the mystery/suspense part of the story. I felt like it was written really well. While I enjoyed London and Trevor's chemistry and the mystery they were working to solve, I felt like there were bits and pieces of the story that weren't handled as thoroughly as they could. I would love to see more of them in the future, in perhaps another Second Chances series book. If you haven't read anything by Libby Rice, you're missing out on some amazing angsty romance with suspense, and a great read!

Libby Rice Bio:
Before becoming a writer, Libby was first a mechanical engineer in the data acquisition industry (voltmeter anyone?). Preferring writing to technical design, Libby headed to law school and eventually practiced patent law for several enterprising years (patent application covering a voltmeter anyone?). Finally realizing that technology just wasn’t her bag, she traded the voltmeters for alpha heroes and the women who love them.
Today, Libby writes contemporary romances from the foot of the Rocky Mountains, where she lives with her husband, a bona fide rocket scientist (he stuck with the voltmeters!). When not writing, Libby loves good food, even better wine, and traveling the world in search of the next great story.
