Review: Mischief and Mayhem by L.E. Rico

Mischief and Mayhem
Synopsis
Welcome to Mayhem, Minnesota, home of the Knitty Kitty, The Little Slice of Heaven Pie Shop, and O’Halloran’s Pub—owned by the four young women known as The Whiskey Sisters.

In the wake of her divorce, Jameson O’Halloran has gone man-vegan. And this is one diet she’s determined to stick with. Even when her long-lost ex-brother-in-law shows up looking like two scoops of double dutch dipped in chocolate… She’s not giving in. Been there and still wearing the messy T-shirt.

It’s been a decade since Scott Clarke left his family and his hometown, never to return. But when tragedy strikes, he finds himself dragged back to the land of gossip, judgment, and the one woman he absolutely, positively, without a doubt can never have. His brother’s ex is off-limits. He just needs to keep repeating that to himself until it sinks in.

Review

It's a sweet and yet emotional story. Not every love story can be straightforward and this one is quite complicated because Jameson was once married to Scott's brother. But, he can't stop himself from having feelings for this woman. She is the most beautiful person he has ever met and as guilty as he feels for being attracted to his brother's ex-wife, he simply cannot help it.

Jameson is a mother, first and foremost, also after her divorce she has lost faith in her judgment as well as men in general. But, Scott is not like any other man. He is sweet and he is considerate; the exact opposite of his brother. Perhaps that's why she feels the way she feels.

Both are scared of their complicated pasts and current situation, however, one thing is for, sure they may not be able to keep their feelings hidden for long...

It's a very well written novel and has some very interesting characters. I quite enjoyed the story and would recommend to all contemporary romance fans.
P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley.
