What it’s about:

My new neighbor is irresistible, and he’s keeping me up ALL night long…

Emerson Hayes is sexy, arrogant, and has abs that would put a Hemsworth to shame. He’s also opening a bar with his buddies right below my apartment. Goodbye, peace and quiet, hello sleepless nights fantasizing about my hot new landlord…
But when my stuffy workplace makes it clear I need a plus-one for our events, I have the perfect way to even the score. Emerson is A+ arm-candy… as long as I can resist taking a bite. Our arrangement is supposed to be just for show, but Emerson is like that fifth shot of tequila: tempting, intoxicating, and liable to leave me flat on my back with my panties around my ankles, begging for more.

Maybe I should stay for just one more round…

Sparks fly in the hot new standalone series from Katie McCoy.

My Thoughts:

Rascal by Katie McCoy is the adorable book in her new Rascals series. Rascals aptly describes the five friends who have opened a neighborhood pub, also named Rascals.  If this first book is any indication, the series is going to be fantastically fun.

Rascal features soon-to-be lawyer Alex and Emerson, a would-be trust fund “kid” looking to make a living on his own.  These two come from opposite ends of the socio-economic ladder, and they come together in an unlikely but hilarious way.  Their common values and obvious attraction keeps them together.

Rascal is a quick paced, easy read.  It is mostly light-hearted and fun.  The little conflict comes from parent and co-worker antagonists, and it is easily resolved even though it takes the hero and heroine too long to realize that minor grievances come with every relationship.

I enjoyed the dynamics between the main characters, their family, and friends.  Rascal is a quick, fun escape from reality with an enjoyable HFN ending.
