BLOG TOUR: Shaken, Not Stirred by Sawyer Bennett

Welcome to Last Call...a bar where the drinks are cold and the nights are scorching hot. 

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

Shel: This has been such a fun series and after the heavy nature of the last two in this series, it was fun to have a lighter read. And, honestly, I've been waiting to hear Casey's story for a while now; once I started it, I zoomed through it. Court: This is true. She is the backbone of the group, in that she gives good advice, and is always there for them. Then...she isn't, because she doesn't give the core of herself the same way they do. There was a lot to be done to get to the heart of that. 

Shel: Why did I inhale it so quickly? Here are a few reasons:

  • Shel: Casey is so likeable. Is she flawed and stubborn? Absolutely. Is she honest and willing? Yes and those two qualities endeared her to me, almost immediately. She owned who she was; I loved this about her. Court: Yes. If she hadn't been so honest, her story might not have been so endearing. It isn't always fun to have a sassy heroine who isn't likable, and thank God Casey is likable. She knows what she wants, and goes after it...but guess what? She is human too, and has a unique vulnerability about her that we like.
  • Shel: Tenn. Well, his name is great. And he's an ex-military, ex-rancher, motorcycle dude and that's pretty great. And, he's a great dad... which is awesome. Has a filthy mouth? Yep. And his patience and adoration of freaking amazing..makes me all melty for him. Court: He is SUCH AN AWESOME GUY! I think I like him almost more than every other SB hero, because he is such a great dad, a fun guy to be around, and holy honest batman...he calls Casey out on her shit, and right when she needs it...but not too OTT alpha that he doesn't melt her (and us) like butter.
  • Shel: Sawyer also included cameos of all of the other couples and that makes it so much fun--getting all of their stories, seeing where they are...ties up lots of loose ends. It does. And hello there, Nix Caldwell. That was a fun series crossover too! 
  • Shel: The angst is reasonably low. Don't get me wrong. I definitely had to put my book down a few times and take some deep breaths, but overall, I was able to power through with few ragey moments. Court: Girrrl, I know. Casey makes us work for it. wouldn't be a Saywer Bennett book if the outcome wasn't completely worthwhile, the plot swift and engaging, and the characters lovable at their core...even when they make us want to strangle them and Sawyer's writing as always is well, flawless. 
Shel: I guess when I take a step back and think about it, this novel just gave me the warm fuzzies. It's nice to read about a fictional couple works. They don't make things more difficult than they really need to be and they're respectful and patient of the other person in the relationship. Having Casey end this series was the perfect choice....and I'm stoked to know that Woolf will have a book too! Yay!!! Court: I have to be honest that I am sad to leave the Last Call world behind, but biker's and rancher's in Wyoming...hello there. I can't wait. Sawyer...keep your words coming, we love you.
