The love that lies built?

Wine importer London Whitley dots her I’s and crosses her T’s. Her meticulous nature insulates her from fears that she might just be crazy, as in certifiably, medically nuts. When her almost ex-boyfriend winds up dead at her hands and she’s soon accused of importing counterfeit wines, London’s carefully constructed world begins to crumble. There’s help to be had, but only in the form of an imposing stranger who threatens her ruin.

Trevor Rathlen is lucky to have escaped his marriage to a murderess alive and merely indebted to men who think the exquisite London Whitley’s innocence is a façade. A computer security specialist by day and hacker by night, Trevor agrees to return the favor owed by learning London’s secrets. The task should be an easy one, except Trevor is short on trust, London is long on lies, and together they battle an infinite attraction.

**3.75 Bars**

Love Drunk can be read as a standalone even though it is the third book in the Second Chances Series. I really looked forward to this book (I love wine, I'll just cut to the chase on this one), but I didn't love this book. The writing was great, the characters had some great chemistry, but there was something missing for me. I generally have a tough time picking up a book in the middle of a series, but have had some great books that could be read as standalones, and others that couldn't be. I think that Love Drunk is just one of those books for me; I should have read the other two before picking up this one. 

As I stated above, the writing was great. Libby Rice really set the bar high on this one with her outstanding plot twists. There was always something going on that had the characters going, huh?! (as well as myself). Trevor and London come from separate backgrounds that seemed to mesh well together when the two were brought together. There were times I was extremely confused in this book. I'm not sure why, but a few plot lines left me scratching my head going, Where did this come from?? I think had I read Love Me Later, and Art-Crossed Love that I wouldn't be in the position I am now.

I do think that this was a good book for those that have read the previous two books in the series, and would like to learn more about Trevor in his own book. 

Second Chances #1

Second Chances #2
Before becoming a writer, Libby was first a mechanical engineer in the data acquisition industry (voltmeter anyone?). Preferring writing to technical design, Libby headed to law school and eventually practiced patent law for several enterprising years (patent application covering a voltmeter anyone?). Finally realizing that technology just wasn’t her bag, she traded the voltmeters for alpha heroes and the women who love them.

Today, Libby writes contemporary romances from the foot of the Rocky Mountains, where she lives with her husband, a bona fide rocket scientist (he stuck with the voltmeters!). When not writing, Libby loves good food, even better wine, and traveling the world in search of the next great story.
