Readers back for a third round of the bestselling Cocktail series will enjoy a madcap romantic comedy about bodice ripping and chest heaving, fiery passion and love everlasting. Plus a dash of paperwork filing and horseshi—wait, what?

By day, Viv Franklin designs software programs. By night, Vivian’s a secret romance-novel junkie who longs for a knight in shining armor, or a cowboy on a wild stallion, or a strapping firefighter to sweep her off her feet. And she gets to wear the bodice—don’t forget the bodice.

When a phone call brings news that she’s inherited a beautiful old home in Mendocino, California from a long-forgotten aunt, she moves her entire life across the country to embark on what she sees as a great, romance-novel-worthy adventure. But romance novels always have a twist, don’t they?

There’s a cowboy, one that ignites her loins. Because Cowboy Hank is totally loin-ignition worthy. But there’s also a librarian, Clark Barrow. And he calls her Vivian. Can tweed jackets and elbow patches compete with chaps and spurs? You bet your sweet cow pie.

In Screwdrivered, Alice Clayton pits Superman against Clark in a hilarious and hot battle that delights a swooning Viv/Vivian.

Also within this book, an answer to the question of the ages: Why ride a cowboy when you can ride a librarian?

Alice Clayton is such an awesome author. Her books are always funny, romantic, and of course very, very sexy. This new book, Screwdrivered isn’t an exception! I love the plot, the characters, and the connection with Simon & Caroline. *Fangirling thinking about the Wallbanger* Most of all, I love the HEA. It was perfect. Vivian made the right decision. Too late in my opinion if you asked me but nonetheless she made it.

I can totally relate to Viv’s crazy daydreaming tendencies, with her desire for a bad boy and with her blindness *F.F.S. I wanted to kick her ass*, when a woman only sees what she wants to see it is very frustrating, and Viv was stuck in her crazy theory.

Screwdrivered is a story of a young woman named Viv, who believes in the book-romance kind of love. When she inherited a beautiful beach house in Mendocino, she thought she was destined to have her own romance-novel-love-story complete with the chase, the angst and of course, the hot steamy sex. And to be fair to her, she had all the elements to think she was right about her crazy theory, among them, the Cowboy *What a Jerk*.

efeef9d2dfdeed01968479fdea2be297I prefered what was really happening in her real life, outside the crazy dream of a novel romance. The renovation of the house, the friends she made in the small town, and the sincere friendship she was building with the Librarian *thumbs up*. The things that happened with both of them were awesome, especially the incident in the porch *licking*.

I’m glad that I got the chance to get to know Chloe, who will be in the next book of the series, Mai Tai’d Up. I’m sure Chloe will be a great female character. I liked what she did when she met Vivian. 🙂


Heather Smith narrated the first two books of the series, Wallbanger and Rusty Nailed, so it was hard for me to separate her breathy voice from Caroline. I didn’t like that, because I know that Viv and Caroline are very different, both great characters, but different from each other. In my honest opinion, they should have picked another narrator. After 2 hours of listening to the audiobook, I get used to her voice and I liked when she made male voices. It was like a real man was talking, not her. That was good. I hope they pick another narrator for the next book of the series.
