Synopsis from Goodreads
Racer McKay is a broody bastard.
From the moment I met him, he’s been rude, irritable, and unbearable. And worse? He’s broke.
A contractor working to remodel my parents pool house for extra cash, he stomps around in those clunky construction boots with his tool belt wrapped around his narrow waist, and a chip on his shoulder.
Racer McKay is also infuriatingly . . . sexy as hell. I want to take that pencil tucked behind his ear, and draw lazy lines slowly up and down his body all the while wanting to strangle him at the same time.
We try to stay out of each other’s way . . . that is until I have no other option but to ask for his help.
But what I don’t realize is he needs me just as much as I need him. I have money he’s desperate for, and he holds the key to making my dreams come true.
Our pranks turn from sarcastic banter, to sexual tension and lust-filled glances. Bickering matches quickly morph into slow burn moments. We’re hot, we’re cold. We push and pull. I need him, I don’t want him. We’re on the verge of combusting with an agreement dangling dangerously between us. Neither one of us can afford to lose one another and yet, we’re finding it quite hard to decipher the line that rests between love and hate.
*Twisted Twosome is a stand alone romantic comedy.
We first met Racer in My Best Friend’s Ex as one of Tucker’s best friends, a construction worker, and Little Debbie addict, Racer is utterly adorable. Secure enough in his manhood to wear a man-thong to earn extra cash to cover the debt he has been left with since the loss of his father. Racer is in a terrible place financially barely holding onto the house he built with his father, yet he retains his humor, loyalty, incredible work ethic and honor. I completely adored him.
Georgiana (Georgie) is at the other end of the scale financially to Racer, however, she is poorer in other areas, and probably more important than money, she lacks the unconditional love and support of those closest to her. Her father is a relic from the 1950’s trying to squeeze Georgie into a mold of his own making while squashing her hopes and dreams. The award for archaic, misogynistic patriarch goes to Mr. Westbrook. Alienating Georgie and creating a rift within his family while using his considerable influence to quash Georgie’s hopes of starting her own business. Luckily her older brother steps in to help her out, the only problem is her father controls the construction companies in the local area. Who would be desperate enough to risk the wrath of Mr. Westbrook to help Georgie in exchange for a large paycheck – you guessed it – Racer McKay!!!
Georgie and Racer pre-judge each other unfavourably at the start creating a lot of antagonism between them. The unwanted attraction between them only adds fuel to the fire. However, the more they get to know each other alters their opinion and only fuels their chemistry. They have a lot more in common than their social status would suggest. I adored the word play within the narrative adding to my vocabulary in the most wondrous of ways ♥
Georgie and Racer balance each other emotionally, despite their differences they really do belong together. Unfortunately, they still have to overcome the threat Georgie’s father poses to both of their future happiness whether together or separately. Racer’s loyalty and code of honor made me fall for him hard and fast.
It was really nice to catch up with the characters from My Best Friend’s Ex along with the development of Racer and Georgie’s relationship. Twisted Twosome showcases Meghan’s talent for developing her characters while still including her OTT humor at times. I really hope Smalls gets his chance at HEA ♥
