Derek Forrester couldn't lie his way out of a paper bag, but somehow he's managed to convince his less than approving high society mother of his engagement to the teal haired, dangerously curved, tattoo covered, coffee cart owning girl named Peggy.

Peg, not 'Peggy', is far from amused by Derek's fib, but the way he kissed, left her wondering what might have been if she ha

This is such a sweet series! If you haven’t read this series, I must say - please get them now! This groups of friends will not let you down. If anything, they will pick you up and make you laugh. Hell, they may even make you fall in love.
I have always wanted to see who Lissa would pair Peg up with, only because most people would think she is different and I do have to say the pairing is very refreshing!
These two and their friends of course (because nothing is possible without a good group of fr

Sweet with a side of naughty, is the best way to describe this book. He’s a lawyer and meets her when he’s trying to escape his mom, who is always trying to play match maker. He sees her, with her teal hair and tattooes and wants her. He offers to pay her for a kiss and she goes along with it. After the hot kiss, he tells his mom she’s his fiancée. These two are so sweet, but once behind closed doors...naughty, naughty. They are a perfect contrast for each other.

This book by Lissa Matthews was so worth the wait! From the beginning when Derek Forrester, a lawyer in suit who has never done anything outside his comfort zone, races into his best friend’s new offices and seeing the curvy, tattooed girl in the back office offers to pay her a thousand dollars to kiss him, right then. That is only the beginning, it might have been her teal hair that caught his attention, but that kiss told this buttoned up suit that this woman was his forever, now he just has t ...more

Running in fear of his matchmaking mama, Derek Forrester runs right in the arms of Peggy and a lie about their engagement. Less than impressed, Peg succumbs to his kisses and is ready to do whatever he asks right? She's a tattoo wearing coffee cart business woman and doesn't have time for this silly business, but Derek isn't joking once he has had a taste.

I loved this quick romp into the world of food trucks and coffee carts. Peg is a hard w

Peg has been on her own for years. She does her own thing and doesn't need a man in her life. She is finally making her dream come true. Opening the Tattooed Barista. Her own coffee stand. When Derek Forrester walks into the office that day and offers her money to kiss him, just so his mother can see and stop trying to fix him up. She figures it will be easy money. What she didn't figure on was the kiss making her feel things she didn't want to feel. Derek knew when he saw Peg, she was everythin ...more

You want a feel good book that is fun with some romance that will make you laugh out loud? This is the book for you. I LOVE Lissa Matthews's Lone Star Sweets series...I got hooked on them YES because I live in the Lone Star State but mainly because her books are so entertaining. Each book is a standalone book BUT you will benefit from reading the other books in the series.... Especially so with this book as it is a novella or short story and you will know the back history of Peg our barista and ...more

Are you a lover of lattes, sticky buns and cupcakes? Then the Tattooed Barista by Lissa Matthews may be just what you need for a quick, romantic fix. To begin with, the cover is beautiful and its uniqueness is striking. Secondly, it is an upbeat read with charming and realistic characters. Lastly, the story is about a steamy couple that challenges each other both personally and professionally.

This is the love story between Derek, a good-looking successful lawyer, and Peg, an artist who is in the

I received this book for an honest review.
To avoid is mother's matchmaking schemes Derek makes the rash decision to tell his mother that the curvy, tattooed barista with the teal haired is his fiance. Peg thought she was just agreeing to a kiss next thing she knows she's engaged and her future MIL is more than a little intimidating. Though it was one heck of a kiss and she was paid to play along with the kiss she's not thrilled with the rest of Derek's story so now she though she can't deny thei

Tattooes, Suits, and Coffee.. The perfect combination.
I was truly drawn in by book three of the Lone Star Sweet series. In my opinion I do recommend you reading the previous books, especially to get a glimpse of the main character of this book.

Peggy "Peg" is the tattooed artist who happens to be in the wrong/right place at the RIGHT time according to Derek Forrester. Derek is looking to find the perfect girl to make his mom SCREAM! He definitely does that with Peg, but he doesn't count on an i

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The book starts out with Derek running from his mother and offering to pay Peg $1500 for a kiss. She thinks why not, I need the money and he is cute even if he is a suit. Whoa buddy! What neither of them was expecting! Holy hotness and it just gets better the more time they spend with each other. Sure there are a few bumps in the road to overcome. Every good relationship has them. "It's the only way to deal with a man. Your head wi ...more

What a book. This is book three in the series and just like the first two it makes you drool for the food and now for coffee. The descriptions of the food is enough to make me hungry. I was wondering how Peg was going to be portrayed after reading the first two books. She has a hard shell but is just a big softy inside. Derrick a lawyer who just can't lie to save his life finds the love of his life after one kiss. A kiss he paid for to trick his mom. Peg isn't sure she can trust her feelings or ...more

Given to me for an honest review. I have found a new author (to me) and can't wait until I can read the other 2 stories in this set. They are standalones and funny. The story opens with Derek running from his mother. She has her "you need to marry one of these nice society girls" look. He stops running when he gets to Samuel's office. Then he sees this tattooed woman with teal hair and is curvy. He offers money for a kiss. They bargain for a bit and then his mother sees them having a very hot ki ...more

Great Series!
This is a great series; this is the third book in the Lone Star Sweets series by Lissa Matthews. Derek Forrester has convinced his mother that he is engaged to Peggy (Peg) who owns the coffee cart. When Peg finds out about his lie to his mother she is not pleased. IF you are looking for a fun romance then you need to read this book and series. I am looking forward to the next book.
