Book Review: One More Shot - Book One Girlfriends, Goddesses & Barflies by TL Alexander

One More Shot

One More Shot - Book One

Girlfriends, Goddesses 

& Barflies

by TL Alexander




From the author of the smexy, LOL Layers Series

After a messy divorce, Dannie O’Brien has come home to Whisper Lake, Oregon. She’s off men for life—vowing to the goddesses, she’ll never be a huckleberry, again.

Dino Coletti, Manhattan’s hottest bachelor doc, moves to small town—smaller lake, Oregon. Why he felt the need to leave NYC, and his manwhoring ways behind him—he had no clue. Then he saw her, and he knew she was the one he didn’t know he was even looking for.

Life on Whisper Lake will never be the same, when a smart-mouthed, independent, wounded woman, meets a man who’s convinced they’re destine, and she’s convinced he’s a snake in the firs.

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

“Marcie said he’s the hottest thing to hit the lake since your dad.  I told her, it’s not possible.  You dad is and will always be the honey to my dew.”

“That’s how I knew my second husband was a keeper.  I gave him the test… The third time we hooked up, I wore my biggest granniest, white cotton panties.” 

“If there’s one thing I know, it’s a player.  Dino Coletti is a major player, and I’m not talkin’ about chess.  I’m talkin’ chest.  I’m not going there again, ever.  This girlfriend has learned her lesson.”

“I’ve been looking for you before I even knew I was looking.”

“He removes three condoms and sets his wallet aside.  He kisses them one by one.  ‘I’ve never been so happy to see you.  Come to Papa, you little gold treasures of pleasure.’”

My Review:

I declare TL Alexander to be the queen of witty banter, as she has more than mastered this skill.  Her dialogues in One More Shot were rapid fire, hilarious, and miles beyond clever.  I frequently barked, snorted, and laughed aloud as I read, and I do believe I maintained a near constant smirk throughout.  The writing was crisp, whip smart, and engaging.  The plot was interesting, relevant, observant, and unfailingly entertaining.  I adored her Layer’s series but believe this book is her best work yet.  Her humor is addicting, snarky, wicked funny, and creatively naughty.  I did not want the fun to end and am already jonesing for the next installment.  I may need rehab if she doesn’t hurry.

About the Author

Hey, girlfriends and guyfriends…TL Alexander
So…what about me? Well…I live in the good old USA, the Pacific Northwest, to be more specific. Everything here is green and soggy, but it’s grown on me like…moss and slugs.

I love to read and write. I read mostly romance, but I love a good mystery or biography. I love to laugh myself to pee-my-pants, and do so whenever possible ( own lots of undies). 

I possess a very imaginative way with words (potty-mouth), and I can’t get enough of DIY words…linguistatard, gaywadest…the list is never ending.

When not writing or reading, I’m driving my family friggin' ass-crazy. And when not doing that…I garden, do projects (got to have a project) and travel—whenever possible (never enough).

Layers, is my first self-published romance series—but far from my last. I’ve got lots more to write about when Alexia, Jaxson, Jules and the gaywads, are written off into the sunset. I'm excited about my next series—Girlfriends Goddesses and Barflies—it's going to be fun!

A special shout-out to my fans…I love you! I love your—“you go girlfriends,” your DIY words, and your potty mouths. Potty mouths unite! Potty-mouths rule! Potty-mouths take over the world! Damn fucking straight! Thank you for taking a chance on a new author and for all your wonderful (colorful) words of encouragement and wisdom.

Make sure to check out my site often for updates and other fun stuff. Leave me a hey you, or even a review…what the hell! I'd love to hear from you. ( that friggin' rhymes) Contact me on my contact page

Potty-mouths…rule the universe—and beyond!!
