Publisher's Summary

"I’m afraid my vagina might turn itself inside out if you try to give it another orgasm so soon.” (Scarlett Bodine)

Raised by her three overbearing brothers, Scarlett is a hell-raising tomboy with a tool belt. A tornado stirring up trouble everywhere she goes. Her favorite pastimes? Drinking any man under the table and two-stepping. But she has zero interest in love. Scarlett’s only being neighborly when she claims her sexy next-door neighbor as her new pet project. 

Devlin is a man at rock bottom. Marriage, political career, five-year plan to Washington, DC. All destroyed with one well-placed jab. The golden boy is now the black sheep relegated to Bootleg Springs, a tiny West Virginia town with two claims to fame: 1. moonshine and 2. the cold case disappearance of a teen girl. 

Devlin just wants to lick his wounds. But Scarlett has other ideas for his tongue...and the rest of him. She’s determined to bring him back to life, even if getting him back on his feet means never seeing him again. But when an old mystery becomes new news, she’ll need his help to survive the scandal.

Whiskey Chaser

There aren’t enough words to describe how much I love Scarlett Bodine. I want to grow up to be her, she has such a larger than life personality and this mother hen quality to take care of her brothers and her people even when it look more like scheming. Dev coming out of his broken shell self with Scarlett’s poking and prodding is the best. He’s not as stuffy as he appears and he’s willing to serve a big ole helping of bootleg justice for his girl and her family.

Fun fun

Lucy score is pretty hit and miss for me. The upside is that her hits are out of the ball Park. Her characters have depth and growth and are generally prone to acting like adults instead is teenagers. I would have liked to hear more about the case but maybe that’ll come with subsequent books. This one has lots of funny and little whiny inner monologue-ing which is always a major plus in a book. Definitely a keeper

Voice Porn at its finest

Casting Stephen Dexter Mr Voice Porn Himself for this book series is the best thing! Natalie Duke as Scarlett and her southern draw was flawless. I could listen to this 100X and not get tired of it. They brought the characters and community to life and so excited to listen to the rest of the series!

Southern, hot, and a mystery

I thoroughly enjoyed hearing these characters come alive. I can’t wait to listen to the next books in this series. Small southern town, healing, love, and a mystery in between in the perfect recipe for a series.

They really made this story come alive!

Narrator Review:
Stephen Dexter and Natalie Duke sure enhanced the listening experience of a great series! They really made the story fuller if at all possible! I can listen to them read this story every day!

Book Review:
Well Lucy has done it again! Everything she writes is pure gold!

Small Virginia town set in fictional Bootleg Springs, is filled with colorful neighbors and fun times. Makes me want to live there!

Scarlett Bodine is tasked to help Devlin McCallister, a disgraced politician, find his true self after his wife cheats on him, by his grandmother. With her spark and love of life, she helps heal his broken soul and helps him find his true calling in life. Scarlett shows Devlin how to be more spontaneous. And Devlin shows her how to be in a relationship. He also helps her heal after her father passes away.

The town is filled with eccentric people that keep the laughter coming. Throughout the story of Scarlett and Devlin, there is a mystery that you are learning about with Devlin. Callie went missing 12 years ago and the whole town is trying to figure out the mystery of what happened to her. We also meet Scarlett's 3 brothers and half-brother. We watch how they grow as a family and finally help Scarlett with the loss of her father.

This is the start of the Bootleg Spring Series written with Claire Kingsley. Each book is about one of Scarletts brothers and more of the mystery of "What happened to Callie?" is revealed.

Lucy Score sure knows how to put into words all the feels, that we need, to make a great story. You feel like you are there and know these characters, like they are our friends. She is amazing in fleshing out the characters and making us vested in knowing what happens to each and every one of them. I can't wait for the rest of the series to come out!

Welcome to Bootleg Springs!

Overall 4 stars
Performance 5 stars
Story 3.5 stars

This was a great start to the Bootleg Springs series. I really enjoyed the opposites attract and forced proximity tropes and they worked perfectly for this small town romance. There are plenty of shenanigans and laughs throughout, but I did feel that the story lost a little focus in the middle and some parts felt repetitive and too drawn out.

Scarlett was a whirlwind of activity and such a great contrast to the buttoned up Devlin. There is some typical push and pull between them as reality intrudes on their bubble, but the epilogue was just right and really set up the future books well. Natalie Duke and Stephen Dexter were wonderful together and I really enjoyed their narration. Natalie Duke's accent was a highlight for me and she was the perfect Scarlett. The Callie Kendall mystery was also an interesting addition to the story and I'm looking forward to seeing how that resolves over the course of the series.

Small Towns, Hot Sex

Scarlet Bodine, of the Bootleg Bodines, is introduced to Devlin when he moves into his Grandmother's house next door to lick his wounds and hide from public life while his divorce is finalised. Scarlet introduces Devlin to the vibrant town community of Bootleg, and into the chaotic fold of her family including all her brothers.

Scarlet and Devlin have instant attraction. The book has multiple sex scenes and strong physical attraction throughout the book. That said the actively learn about each others real life outside the bedroom. By the end you'll be completely convinced they were made for each other.

This is the second book I've read narrated by Stephen Dexter and Natalie Duke. I'm a huge pair of them as a combination for romance books and do a fabulous job of bringing the characters alive.

There is a town mystery that starts in this book, the authors have stated it doesn't get resolved until the final book. It really makes me excited to read the remainder of the series.

pretty fun, refreshing characters

I had listened to a few in the series before this one, and think it holds up quite well against the good ones in the series. I found the leads to be refreshing takes on typical male/ female leads. very much appreciated Scarlett take no prisoners modern woman attitude, and general ability to kick arse without being butch. Her and Devlin were a good match, and the development of their relationship matched their characters. narrators did great job and fit characters.

Lucy always delivers

I'm obsessed with Lucy Score's books. Love the dynamic of the 2 main characters. There is always a solid narrative behind the romance in her books. some Rom-coms miss that but the tension around them builds with their relationship. Also liked that it wasn't a 'fake relationship' scenario, it was a little more real world than that. Love how unapologetically frank these characters are with eachother, such a fun and steamy read. My second favourite Lucy Score book but it is a very close second place!

Great story and excellent narration

Love the Bootleg Springs series - well rounded characters, family and community, steamy times, with a bit of mystery. The narration is spot on and enhances the story, accent, inflection, pacing.
