In Veronica Davis's case, who'd want to—especially when you hail from Fossil, Washington? But now she's back among the kooks and crazies, the small-time losers and the jerks who think she's fair game just because she's in a waitress uniform.
The truth is, Veronica's the boss—at least until she can sell the family saloon and skip town again as fast as her pretty legs can carry her—and nobody knows that better than Cooper Blackstock. From his place behind the bar, the former Special Forces Marine sees everything. And his undercover agenda has made the feisty boss-lady's troubles his own.
And her troubles are considerable, what with a family in turmoil, a pseudo-bartender with dangerous secrets, a murder investigation and death threats. Though the town surprisingly rallies in support, it's still a good thing that Cooper will be there to catch Veronica if she stumbles—if he doesn't start falling himself.

I had hoped for a little more mystery and a little less romance. The author seems wrapped up in graphic sexual content making the novel an R (or possibly X) rated novel. Certainly adult only.
Having said that, the basic plot is interesting enough. Veronica "Ronnie" Davis returns to the Baker Street Honky Tonk, her family's bar in Fossil, Washington where she worked until she completed college. She is there to settle her sister's estate and take charge of her young niece. She encounters the manager, James Cooper "Coop" Blackstock, an ex-Marine hunk with an attitude who her friend Marissa describes as 200 pounds of raw sex on the hoof. Coop mistakes Ronnie as a job applicant and immediately presses her into work as a waitress (well, he had been mistaken as a job applicant when he showed up, which was not the reason he was there).
Things become complicated as Coop investigates the murder of Ronnie's sister, a woman who had a reputation for round heels and...
The whole book was cheesy the writing was comical and during the dirty talk was borderline insulting. He starts for play by telling her how small her boobs are and how he's used to having women with bigger chests?!?!? The whole thing was worse than a Lifetime movie network movie.
Veronica (Ronnie) Davis returned to her home town when her sister, Crystal, was murdered. Ronnie was going to stay in town long enough to sale the family home and bar and put the proceeds in a trust account for her six year old niece, Lizzie. Then she was taking Lizzie Seattle with her. She did not plan to meet Cop the ex-marine who was tending bar and renting the attic at her house. Cop was in town to prove his half brother, Eddie, was not guilty of murdering his wife - Crystal. This book has some interesting characters and you will be guessing as to who killed Crystal until the end of the book
