The story begins as Savvy’s long term ‘Z list’ celeb boyfriend dumps her. Instead of crumbling and giving up Savvy moves back to her Auntie Jen’s. Auntie Jen’s straight talking, pulls no punches and say it how it is approach is enough for Savvy to reinvent herself.
A childhood tainted by the departure of her rock star Mother, this is not a story of self-pity and abandonment, but a story of survival and girl power.
I immediately loved Savvy. Down to earth, quiet and a loner, she has the complete likeability factor. An ordinary girl by day, but once in the bustling burlesque bar, the Martini Club, Savvy is brought to life and is transformed into a confident, ambitious and sociable young woman.
As opportunities arise and doors open Savvy creates a life within a whole new world. Within the secrets and mysteries of her new life, Savvy meets Milo the cool, approachable and very sexy bar tender who captures her eye. An instant spark, passion and romance are the perfect ingredients for a new relationship.
Cocktails and dreams is the first in the Martini Club series and the desire for more leaves you shaken and stirred with excitement and wanting more!
