Tequila + you best friend + your bedroom = um, whoopsie?
Tequila Tequila, an all-new hilarious standalone romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Emma Hart is available NOW!
Don’t sleep with your best friend.
Take it from me. I did it. And it was awful.
I-wish-the-tequila-made-me-forget kind of bad.
The problem is, Luke has forgotten. He swears that he can’t remember a thing about that night beyond the trays of tequila shots being set on the tables.
Except I can’t forget. I can’t forget how good his hands felt until I fell over and hit my hip on the dresser, and I sure as hell can’t forget the entire two minutes of tap-tap-squirt.
Awkward. Embarrassing. And the new subject of a couple of dirty lucid dreams.
But I have no intention of telling him what we did. Nothing good comes from telling your best friend he’s the worst guy you’ve ever slept with.
Which makes the tequila on my birthday a very, very bad idea…

Have you ever walked into a store and had to ask where the lady section is?”
I paused, my grip on the fridge door firm, and turned to him. I simply blinked. I wasn’t going to justify that with an answer.
“It took three people before a poor woman at the customer service desk took pity on me and walked me to the tampon aisle,” he went on, oblivious to my death stare. “She hovered over me for a second and I started fucking sweating, Aspen. Sweating.”
I bit my lip and moved the ingredients for his sandwich over to the board on the island.
“I almost dropped my phone trying to find the photo you sent me, and when I finally brought it up, I was so fucking confused I stood there like a lame damn duck for five minutes before she came back to help me like she knew I was a total idiot.”
Was it wrong that I was way more amused about this than anything else? A part of me told me I should feel bad, but…
“Did you know there are tons of those things? The boxes are all different. There are different brands. Different sizes. Different… absorbency levels.” He shuddered, his wide, muscled shoulders shaking with his cringey thought. “For flows and stuff.”
“I shop there regularly. I am aware.”
“Not that fucking regularly if you sent me to buy them,” he muttered. “Anyway, the nice lady who was trying her best not to laugh at the idiot in the sanitary products aisle asked me who I was buying them for. My mom, my sister, my girlfriend…”
I chopped the lettuce.
“When I told her it was for my best friend, she looked at me funny for a minute before nodding. Then, she dragged me over to the aisle with the candy and told me that Twizzlers went well with tampons. I was so confused I didn’t question her, so here.” He lifted a small bag from the stool next to him and tossed it in my direction. “You’re the proud owner of eight packets of Twizzlers.”
“Oooh, Twizzlers!” I dropped the knife and dove into the bag, pulling out all the long, red packets. “This is like heaven!”
“Dude.” Luke leaned forward and held his hands out. “My sandwich?”
“Geez, who’s on their period? You or me?” I put the candy down and went back to making his sandwich. “You should have saved the Twizzlers until after you got your food.”
“Rookie mistake.” He shook his head. “Please don’t ever ask me to buy you tampons again. I’m not sure my ego or reputation can take it.”
“Your reputation got shot to shit on your twenty-first when you mooned the mayor in the town square,” I reminded him.
“And I haven’t mooned anyone since,” he replied. “My pants now stay firmly on when I drink.”
My ARC Review:
This latest offering from Emma had me in stitches!! I wasn’t too sure at first, best friend to lovers doesn’t really do it for me, but these two, Luke and Aspen, worked really well together and the story really grew on me, to the point I couldn’t put it down and wanted to see if they were really gonna work out or not!!
You can literally blame this story all on the Tequila – Luke and Aspen had been best friends for years and had never thought about each other romantically until that one drunken night where the Tequila did the talking and the lines got crossed. A night to remember it was not, both of them were in a real state, and the actual deed was by far the worst Aspen had ever had – tap tap squirt and that’s your lot!! Both are so embarrassed and do not want their friendship to suffer, and so go about their lives as if nothing has happened and they can’t remember their little misdemeanor, when in reality both remember it and wish they couldn’t!!!
I loved their story when it got going – Aspen works in a bar, has a close bunch of friends, loves Mexican food and drinking. Luke works as a builder, has a body to die for (not that she has really noticed as his BF) and spends a lot of time with Aspen, he’s always there raiding her food, and they crash and watch tv together, sleep in the same bed, do everything that best friends do together – but this one drunken night puts this all at risk.
Luke has the maddest Mexican family, his Grandma is just crazy, but cooks the best Mexican food!! Aspen is already like part of the family and is constantly being offered various cousins in the family to date by Grandma! Aspen’s fridge and freezer are always stocked full of Grandma’s cooking!
I loved Luke and Aspen’s chemistry and their personalities just worked so well together, but they have a lot of issues to work out if they are ever going to move past that drunken night together. I was really rooting for them by the end of this book, hoping that they could make that transition from best friends to lovers without killing their friendship – but you’ll just have to read it to find out what really happens. Well worth the read!!
