When returning to Licking Thicket, TN, for the first time in ten years to reunite with your nosy neighbors, heart-broken ex-girlfriend, and matchmaking mama who never quite believed you were gay, it’s best to bring a fake boyfriend as backup...
Just don’t be surprised when your ex-girlfriend does the same.
And when her incredibly hot fake boyfriend becomes the one island of calm in a sea of bovine-based insanity, it’s best to exercise caution… especially when he pushes you up against the rough barn wall to check you very thoroughly for splinters...
Just don’t be surprised if you fall head-over-hooves in love with him.
Never have I ever…..Laughed so hard and loud as I did while reading Fackers by Lucy Lennox and May Archer. The book captured my attention from the start and why wouldn’t it since it took place in a town called Licking Thicket.
Brooks returned to his small town home in Tennessee after a ten year absence; back to crazy and nosy neighbors, an ex who would rather give him the death stare than play nice, and a new position as Head Licker for the annual festival. And it just gets better from there.
Circumstances reunited Brooks and his fake boyfriend with his ex- girlfriend and her bestie, and all the convolution started from there.
There were so many things I loved about this book. First, keep me laughing was always a great motto and Lennox and Archer succeeded. I do not know a page where I wasn’t chuckling. The double entendres and sexual innuendos were rampant and added to the appeal. Second, the larger than life characters sprinkled throughout and the roles each played. From Brook’s parents to the junk yard dealer, everyone held a role that accentuated the storyline and drew the reader more into the town- a place where anyone would want to live.
Mal, bestie to Ava was the icing on the cake. He was sweet, loving, and oh so sexy. Sparks flew the first time he met Brooks and the two waded through relationship fiasco trying to find their place in each other’s lives.
Lennox and Archer delivered characters with insight while sustaining humor. General Beau tickled my fancy. Town gossips and know-it-alls gave dimension. Completely perfect.
Many times, when two authors cowrite the flow can be stagnant, with separation of the styles, but Lennox and Archer were flawless and seamless. May Archer was a new author to this reader, yet I could not tell the difference in collaboration.
I can not wait to see more of Licking Thicket and the teamwork of Lucy and May. Bring it on!
