Hurt and disillusioned after divorcing her cheating husband Lacey Lambert has moved on with a new set of friends and a new attitude. She’s determined to live life to the fullest and ignore the gossiping old biddies who snubbed her. Better yet, she’s ready to indulge in a little commitment-free sex long, loud and with multiple men and make sure those women actually have something to gossip about. Her friends at the Ugly Stick Saloon have proven to be much more supportive than her ex or the pretentious women of the Temptation Garden Club ever were, but when it comes to self-esteem and self-worth Lacey’s going to have to stand on her own two feet, face her fears and prove that she is worth far more than any of those naysayers ever imagined.
Nick McBride’s own marriage recently ended in utter failure and he’s not exactly ready to put his heart back on the market. That doesn’t mean he isn’t up for some off the charts sex, providing there’re no-strings attached. Thanks to his divorce he’s staying with his brother at his new apartment while his own new house gets finished. What he doesn’t expect is for this displacement to be a stroke of luck because the attractive waitress from the Ugly Stick Saloon lives right upstairs and she’s extremely interested in playing with him and his brother – as long as they don’t expect anything more from her.
While Nick and Lacey are enjoying their ‘sex without complications’ they’re completely ignoring the fact that they’re falling for each other – they’re having a great time though doing all the naughty things that would singe the hair on the heads of the ladies at the Temptation Garden Club. There are some moments of misunderstandings and hurt feelings but they’re drawn to each other over and over. They even eventually discover that they really wanted the same things in life starting with a happy marriage but maybe that was too much to ask for in the first place.
BOOTS AND LACE is the fourth title in Myla Jackson’s UGLY STICK SALOON and I think this might be my favorite story so far. I absolutely adore Lacey’s adventurous spirit and her lack of inhibitions. I even want to applaud her spunky attitude and refusal to hide in the face of the Garden Club’s disapproval – she seems to enjoy throwing her new outlook on life and activities in their faces. Now that being said, it’s also obvious that she was very hurt by how she was treated and maybe felt a little payback was in order as a way of validating herself. Nick is perfect for her, he’s willing to indulge her in all her wicked fantasies – and add in a few of his own. He might not completely understand her obsession with the Garden Club but if it’s important to her then it’s important to him as well. One of my very favorite scenes involves a confrontation between Nick’s ex-wife and Lacey that had me laughing out loud and so very impressed with Lacey’s daring.
