Hell, Yeah by Carolyn Brown

I have not read a Carolyn Brown book yet that I haven't loved.  Hell, Yeah is no exception!!

Cathy O'Dell inherited the Honky Tonk bar from her sister Daisy in I LOVE THIS BAR (Book 1 in the series).  Now, she's enjoying her life, working the bar.  But when a tall handsome stranger struts into the bar on New Year's Eve and kisses her at midnight, the sparks fly.

Travis Henry is rich and good looking.  He travels all over unearthing oil wells, then once the job is completed, he moves on.  What he didn't anticipate was falling for a blonde bombshell bartender. 

Cathy and Travis become really close, but Cathy doesn't want to give up her bar to move around and Travis can't live in one place and do his job.   Someone is going to have to compromise or they will have to go their own ways... and no one wants to hear the Honky Tonk jukebox singing Good Morning Heartache.

I loved revisiting the Honky Tonk and it's cast of eccentric characters drinking beer out of quart jars.   Carolyn Brown spins a story like no other, making the characters believable and real.   The chemistry between Travis and Cathy simple sizzles and the cast of characters within the bar is exciting and original and a pure pleasure to read.  I can't wait for the next book in the series, My Give A Damn's Busted - coming in October.  Cowboys, country tunes, and love - perfect for a summer afternoon.

Carolyn Brown will be guest blogging here on Monday, August 23rd, as well as a giveaway opportunity.  Make sure to stop in and chat!!


  1. I have this one to read... ONE DAY! And your review is making my blood pressure rise!!! Great job!

  2. I've seen her books around but I haven't read anything by her yet.


The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
