Welcome to Mayhem, Minnesota, with its sweater-wearing cats and ultra-competitive trivia nights. Where love really does conquer all...if you’ll let it.
Walker O’Halloran is finally ready to shed her “wild child” persona. Bartending at her family’s pub, babysitting her adorable niece and nephews, and getting her degree during the day. What she doesn’t do is date--or even think about dating. Ever. Until he walks into her bar, looking like a former Mr. Quarterback of the Football Team and Student Council President all rolled into one. No, thank you.
Mason Stevens has a secret—and it prevents him from knowing if someone is truly interested in him, or just what he can do for them. Until he meets Walker. She’s the first person in ages who doesn’t recognize him, and her grouchy attitude feels like the greatest challenge of his life. And he’s ready for it.
But the more time they spend together, the more he’s desperate to come clean—it’s just never the right time. Until the paparazzi do it for him…

I totally enjoyed Walker and Mason’s story in Mismatched in Mayhem by L.E. Rico, book four of her Whiskey Sisters series. It was so much fun being back in Mayhem, Minnesota, visiting all the town characters. The four O’Halloran or whiskey sisters, Father Romance, Knitty Kitty, the cat owners, the pie shop, etc.
Ms. Rico created a small town I definitely want to live in. Walker has been focused on no longer being the “wild-child.” Her life revolves around bartending at her family’s pub, babysitting her niece and nephews, and finishing her degree during the day, at the local college; never dating. Then he walks into her bar. It sounds cliché, but it happened. There he was, Mason Stevens, looking like Mr. Perfect, needing a ride back to campus after being left behind by his friends. Walker agreed to drive him home, but that was all. I mean, there in northern Minnesota Ubers and Taxi weren’t exactly hanging on every corner. Mason shied away from dating and Walker is the first person in forever he wanted; plus, her grouchy attitude was a major challenge and turn on to him. Mason brought out feelings that Walker thought she had buried after the death of her father. After losing her trust, Mason needs to figure out how to repair his relationship with Walker and prove she’s the one, and only, for him.
Ms. Rico wrote a wonderful and funny story that should not be missed. She provided a tale rich with emotions, sexual chemistry, humor, and endearing characters giving Walker and Mason a chance at love as well as Walker a chance to forgive herself, after the death of her father. There are lots of laughs in this story and a family who loves each other, no matter what. I highly recommend Mismatched in Mayhem to other readers.
