Tequila, Tequilaby Published 13 Nov 2018
TEQUILA + YOUR BEST FRIEND + YOUR BEDROOM = UM. WHOOPSIE?
Don’t sleep with your best friend.
Take it from me. I did it. And it was awful.
I-wish-the-tequila-made-me-forget kind of bad.
The problem is, Luke has forgotten. He swears that he can’t remember a thing about that night beyond the trays of tequila shots being set on the tables.
Except I can't forget. I can’t forget how good his hands felt until I fell over and hit my hip on the dresser, and I sure as hell can’t forget the entire two minutes of tap-tap-squirt.
Awkward. Embarrassing. And the new subject of a couple of dirty lucid dreams.
But I have no intention of telling him what we did. Nothing good comes from telling your best friend he’s the worst guy you’ve ever slept with.
Which makes the tequila on my birthday a very, very bad idea…

Genre: Friends to Lovers. Romantic Comedy.
Actual Rating: 3.5 stars
Cute, fun, and quirky are the best words to describe Tequila, Tequila! Anyone who knows me can see that I am a die hard Emma Hart fan. She has the most beautiful covers and some of the best over the top characters around. I read every single book she publishes- most of the time without even reading the blurb- and can always find myself chuckling and smiling ear to ear. For the most part, I enjoyed this one. Unfortunately, it's not my favorite Emma Hart book though. The reason being is that there wasn't a lot of "substance" to the story.
Aspen and Luke have been friends for 20 years. So imagine how awkward it was when the two drunkenly slept together. Fortunately for them, they can forget it even happened because neither think the other remembers that it happened in the first place. That is, until another couple of tequila shots opens Aspen's mouth and she tells all the secrets... Knowing that their friendship is important but also realizing the two have more feelings than they thought they did, the two decide to give it a go at dating one another. And the rest is history!
Everything that I summed up above is exactly what you get in the story. Sure there were moments in between where Luke's crazy family comes into play (I love his grandmother) and some silly banter between the two, but I never felt like I was able to really get to know the characters. I would have really liked to see a bit more of their past (they have been friends for over 20 years after all) and maybe some info on how they reacted when the other was actually dating. It would have felt more complete that way.
Other than this, I found the book to be a cute and lighthearted friends to lovers romance. I would certainly recommend it to those who enjoy the authors work and for those who love romantic comedies.
La historia tenía potencial pero es bastante floja, yo amo los friends to lovers y más cuando se conocen desde niños pero siento tanto coraje que no le sacaron provecho.
Hubo cero drama, la relación de amigos no me gustó ella era bastante agresiva con él no sentí su química ni su amor
Pretendía ser divertido pero era bastante forzado.
Simplemente no me gustó.
This was just a really meh book for me, mostly since I didn't feel any connection to the characters. Their relationship went a little something like Drunk sex -> Friendship -> Friendship -> More friendship -> Oh no we remember the sex -> We're together -> The End. There was just a little too much of the strictly friendship parts for me to actually feel a romantic connection between them. And honestly, even as friends these two were still pretty meh and I didn't fully understand what was between them.
Overall, it's not a horrible book and was probably just a me issue that I had with the characters but I can't say this was the best book to end my year with.

My English review
Roh I looooooved this novel so much! Emma Hart is becoming one of my favorite romance writers. What? No ! She has become one of my favorite romance writers! Yes that’s it and her books are so great! And it was once again a great pleasure for me to discover this novel. Except that now, I need to have it in paper to add it on my shelves. And you know what? It does not exist yet in this format …. Sacrilege! Yes sacrilege! I need it and right now!!!!!
In short, maybe you want to learn more about Luke and Aspen? I adored them, they are both crazy. Especially Aspen, I must admit. But when we see Luke’s family, in fact, we realize that it’s the same too! Yes, because once you’ve met his abuelita, it’s over, because she is quite a character, that’s for sure. One that marks us greatly! And Aspen? Oh Aspen, how she made me laugh and, at the same time, I felt her doubts perfectly. It’s so easy to put ourselves in her place and to understand all the stages through which she passes. We want everything to go well, things to move forward at best, but nobody can be sure that it will. This is not all because all the characters also make a strong impression and I loved to discover them all!
Aspen and Luke … Oh those two. It is complicated. It’s difficult. Something has happened after a little too much tequila and what they are good at playing the ostrich! Oh yes, they are very talented! But I loved learning to discover them, I loved seeing them evolve, to attend their colorful exchanges. I loved everything in fact! And I can only advise to try her books!
Aspen and Luke have been best friends forever. One night with entirely too much tequila spells trouble...and not the kind of trouble they bargained for. They never meant to actually have sex, but one horrible night has them pretending they can't remember it the next day. What happens when they can't stop thinking about it and want to see if it was a fluke thanks to the booze?
Aspen was witty and smart-mouthed, headstrong and determined. Luke has the best family, and his grandmother terrifies everyone. I was in love with this book from page one. The first chapter had me dying of laughter...at work. I love a good friend to lovers, but this topped any others I've read. There isn't a whole lot of works without giving it all away, so I have to be a pusher. Read it! Seriously do yourself a favor. One you won't regret. You'll fall in love with every character here.
