Hasty, Julia Kent
Updated: Apr 3
I never thought my perp walk would lead to true love.
Then again, I never thought I’d be arrested on RICO charges and hauled away in zip ties on camera for the world to see, minutes after closing the most amazing deal of my career.
And all of it in front of my biggest rival, billionaire wunderkind Ian McCrory.
I am broke.
I am disgraced.
I am alone.
I am a sucker.
But the worst part? I have to go back to my hometown and live in my bedroom filled with relics from my childhood.
Lisa Frank never made me so mad before.
Just when I needed a rescue, I got one — in the form of help from my biggest rival.
He can’t bring back my money.
He certainly can’t bring back my reputation or my pride.
But there’s one thing he can bring back to me.
A sense of hope.
Maybe even love.
Ian sees something in me no one else does, and he’s relentless about making me see it, too. As we grow closer, I’m starting to see that while my entire life used to be a lie, the truth is staring me in the present — and it’s a truth I like very, very much, hot eyes and gorgeous smile and all.
But I have to be careful.
I can’t be too —
The final book in the USA Today bestselling Do-Over Series (Fluffy, Perky, Feisty), as Mallory's sister, Hastings "Hasty" Monahan gets her turn at a happily ever after that starts off with an arrest.
And ends with a surprisingly cheesy happily ever after.
I hadn't read Julia Kent before and I enjoyed this story. This was book four in the series and was easily read as a standalone. In fact, I think I'm glad I did read it as a standalone. I probably would have felt differently about Hasty had I read the other three books first. In them (from what I understand) Hasty wasn't a very likeable or redeemable character. However, the (now understandably) wicked banter amongst the women in the story was great and good for the other characters. The romance theme was also decent. My only minor annoyance was some of the plot conveniences but I was willing to look past them for good writing and a solid HEA. A quick, fun read.
Favorite Quote/Scene: He was my nemesis. My enemy. The guy who sniped deals, and who I sniped from. We were adversaries, but he flipped the script, didn’t he? Coming to my rescue. Aiding me in a time of need. I don’t want to need him. And I especially don’t need to want him.
