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.

About L. E. Rico

Lauren E. Rico - L. E. Rico

L. E. Rico was going to be principal French horn of the New York Philharmonic. That was her plan, anyway. The New York Philharmonic had no idea of her intentions, and that’s probably a good thing, since she wasn’t an especially good French horn player! Lauren was, however, an exceptionally good classical music radio host. She has made a career of demystifying classical music for her audiences by taking it off a dusty old pedestal and putting it into a modern context. Lauren has recently discovered a passion for writing, which she’s managed to combine with her love and knowledge of the classical music world. She also writes new adult under Lauren E. Rico.

About Lauren E. Rico

Lauren E. Rico - L. E. Rico

Award-Winning author Lauren E. Rico also happens to be  one of the top classical music broadcasters in the country. Her voice is heard nationally on SiriusXM’s Symphony Hall channel, as well as on radio stations in New York City, Charlotte, and Tampa. She’s even been known to accompany travelers as they fly the skies over Thailand, Oman, and China as part of the in-flight entertainment on several airlines. Her love and passion for classical music have allowed her to breathe new life into the stories of the great composers.

And now Lauren is telling some stories of her own…

Beginning with her erotic thriller, Reverie (Harmony House Productions, 2016), she set out to “put the sexy back in Bach,” creating a riveting tale of passion, deception and redemption set against the backdrop of an international music competition. She rounded out the trilogy with Rhapsody (Harmony House Productions, 2016) and Requiem (Harmony House Productions, 2017).

Lauren hopes to bring classical music to a new audience by showcasing it in twisty, steamy stories that grab the reader and keep them turning pages — and YouTubing the music — into the wee hours.
