Haley Brandt isn’t the one-night-stand type, but too much tequila and a man with two sinfully black eyes left her breathless and willing to break her own rules. Her only solace was the fact that she’d never see him again.

Until the next morning when she finds out he’s her ride out of town and back to the ranch where she grew up.

Nixon Holt works with Haley’s father, so Haley makes her position clearshe doesnt get involved with ranch employees. Ever. At nineteen, shed learned her lesson the hard way, and it became her one unbreakable rule.

But Nixon makes his position clear, too: He’s going to wear down Haley’s defenses and he won’t stop until she breaks all her rules for him. He’s well on his way when Haley finds out the one thing that could make her hate him. Nixon is left with two choices: walk away or break all his rules for her.

Haley hasn't been home to her family's ranch in ten years. She left as a young 19 year old with a broken heart and soul and now she's divorced and back home for a while - with her dad and three sisters.
Enter Nixon. He's living on the ranch too. And Haley doesn't want anything to do with guys who work on the farm - never again. But she met him before she knew who he was!
And he's so mega irresistible, working out with no shirt on in the living room! Grrrr.
But of course there are some tiny little secrets surrounding both of them - secrets that could destroy what is just starting between them.

What will happen with Haley & Nix?
Will there be a HEA?

Well, that was cute. And funny  and cowboy-ish! A bit sad and heartbreaking too.
I really enjoyed reading it!

I liked the whole family atmosphere on the ranch. Dad with his four daughters. I really hope we'll get to hear all their stories! Funny ladies with lots of stories to tell! A barkeeper, a cook and a photographer!

But back to Haley and Nix. It was a sweet and funny insta-attraction thing.
Nix doesn't do love and Haley will never again start anything with a ranch hand, or with someone who lies to her about his intentions.
Not a very good start for our two darlings!

Sweet story.
But nothing much happened. I wanted a little bit more excitement or funny moments, sexy moments. We didn't really hear anything about Nixon's life, his life and past and family - other than meeting his brother for a second. We also heard nothing much about Haley's store and the ranch and ... This book should've been 50 pages longer with a bit more of everything, it's like there have been three books about the three sisters already, and we should know everything already!

But I still enjoyed reading it - I really loved the never have I ever game they played! Adorable!

Oh... another thing. LOL! Maybe I was just in a weird mood while reading this book, because from the moment I posted the cover reveal on social media (and didn't read the blurb! Because I only read blurbs the second before I start reading the book!) I was sure that this was going to be a HIGHSCHOOL ROMANCE!!!!!!! But we're not talking about the high in high school - but the high you get from drinking too much tequila! LOL! I know, I'm weird, but I was really hoping for a sweet young romance! No idea what I was thinking where the tequila would be happening at a highschool, but I'm sure tequila happens at highschools. ☺☺☺ And then I went and read the blurb and somewhere there it says 19! So I assumed Haley is 19, but that was ten years ago - ugh. I should really pay better attention to things! ☺

Another tiny little thing. The praying before dinner thing. Too much religion for me. I'm absolutely anti-religion and I just don't want that in my romances!

But still - I really loved Nix and Haley and the others - can't wait to hear more from them!

TEQUILA HIGH was a sweet & adorable cowboyish love-story!
Please run to your nearest amazon for your own Nixon! This one is MINE!!!!!

Stalking Michelle:

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, M. Leighton, is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you'll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren't roaming in that direction, she'll be riding wild horses, skiing the slopes of Aspen or scuba diving with a hot rock star, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.

About Michelle: I love coffee and chocolate, even more so when they are combined. I'm convinced that one day they could be the basis for world peace. I also love the color red and am seriously considering dying my hair.
