REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Texas Fandango by Cynthia D'Alba

Texas Fandango
Texas Montgomery Mavericks
By: Cynthia D’Alba
Samhain Publishing
Releasing February 4th, 2014

KC Montgomery was eleven when she met the love of her life. Of course, seventeen-year-old Drake Gentry didn’t know she existed, but that didn’t stop her girlish fantasies from growing and changing over the years.

Now, after enjoying a front-row seat to his breakup with his latest girlfriend, she’s been handed an all-grown-up fantasy come true—two weeks at the Sand Castle Resort. With him.

Drake most definitely noticed KC a long time ago, but the timing’s never been right. Now that he’s facing a lonely vacation that was supposed to be for two, it seems only natural to accept KC’s offer to fill in. And as far as her terms go… No strings. No expectations. No holds barred. Drake is no fool—he’s all over it.

But once they’re back in Texas there are invisible strings still hanging between them. Strings labeled attraction, affection…even love. And the more they try to untangle the knots, the tighter they’re bound together.

Warning: Beware of sunburns, whirlpool sex and sand in delicate places.

Sarah's Review
Thanks to Cynthia D'Alba and Tasty Book Tours for the opportunity to read this story.  I haven't read the others in this series, but I will be as soon as possible. The cover caught my attention, then the blurb grabbed it. 

Drake and K.C. are characters that I enjoy reading because they grew up together.  Sometimes the best relationships begin as friends and that is what I love most about this story.  I love K.C.'s determination about going on the trip with Drake.  I think that Drake really wasn't sure how much that trip would change them.

I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series and future stories.
