For West Coast filmmaker Bobbie Gallagher, going back to Sultry Springs is a last resort. But with her career in tatters, a documentary set in her hometown might be just what she needs to salvage her reputation. She just can’t let anything distract her again. Not even the gorgeous contractor her brother asked to watch over her. As if she can’t handle filming a few rowdy Texans.
Golden boy Trey Lewis, with his blond hair and technicolor-blue eyes, is a leading man if Bobbie even saw one. He’s strong and confident and—much to her delight—usually shirtless. He thinks keepings his best friends baby sister out of trouble will be easy. But he has no idea of the trouble in store for him… (taken from the back of the arc)

A Shot of Sultry is book two in Macy Beckett’s Sultry Springs Series and happens to be the first book by this author that I have read. While it would have been nice to read book one, A Shot of Sultry can be read as a standalone without feeling lost.
At times I found both Trey and Bobbie (the hero and the heroine) to be a bit annoying although there is no denying that they have this incredible chemistry and heat which pulled me into the book. I didn’t care too much for the Nazi remark or the fact that whenever Bobbi voiced an opinion she allowed Trey to shut her up.
Bobbi wasn’t one of my favorite heroines, for some reason her character just didn’t click with me. Trey while he does come off as a bit of a caveman at times is rather charming. Combine the two and they make a witty pair that you want to read more about. And the secondary characters were thoroughly entertaining.
This book was a bit like a rollercoaster for me. Some parts I loved, some parts I liked, some parts I could have done without, and some parts I absolutely loathed. Overall, I found it to be a quick enjoyable read that made me want to read the others in the series.
