Sophia and Scott have a history, full of highs and lows. Scott has always known that he loved Sophia. He’s thrilled when Sophia bids, and wins, a date with him at a Bachelor Auction. Both of them can sense that there is something between them, but their conflicting schedules eventually drive a wedge in their relationship. Sophia is a trauma nurse, and Scott is a first responder. After a particularly grueling shift, they seek solace with each other in the “nap room”. Sophia, needing extra money t ...more

Raffles to Rattles is the eighth book in The Celebration Series by Stacy Eaton. I really enjoyed Sophia and Scott's love story.
Sophia wasn't embarrassed by her career as a dancer, but she also thought she would never go back to it after receiving her nursing degree so finding herself auditioning again was nerve racking. Her plan was to just do it for a few months until she got caught up on a few bills then quit, but keeping it from her friends might be more difficult than she thought.

Sophia Thayer has bills piling up, and her house needs some repairs. Her job at the hospital is not covering it, so she decides to dust off her dancing shoes and resurrect her 'Sassy Pants' persona, a couple of nights a week, dancing at the New Gentlemen's Club: Pleasure Your Fantasies.
Paramedic Scott Allen has had the hots for Sophia since the bachelor auction.
On a boys night out, to scope out a new club for a bachelor party, he is surprised - and also turned on - by Sassy's sexy dance routine.

Surprise, Surprise

Sophia and Scott start a relationship after she wins him at the Bachelor Auction. They both really liked each other before and have a hot and fun time together for six weeks before conflicting nursing and paramedic schedules put the brakes on their budding relationship.
Sophia is in for several surprises. A former exotic dancer, she unexpectedly finds herself dancing again at a new, upscale gentlemen's club to help pay off her student loans and for repairs to her house. The bigg

I enjoy the Celebration Series more with every book.

This story features Sophia and her return as Sassy Pants to make some extra cash. Choosing a gentleman's club an hour outside of town, she doesn't expect to run into friends, co-workers, or Scott, her ex. Scott's jealousy and Sophia's fierce independence have them clashing as much as the two are drawn together. But like the other Celebration couples, the pair are just too good together to stay apart. I can't wait to see more of them in later st

Sophia is an ICU nurse and Scott is a paramedic and they dated for a few months, they broke it off because their conflicting work schedules never allowed them to be together. Sophia needs extra money to help pay her college loans and to pay for much needed maintenance on her home, so she starts dancing a few nights a week (aka stripping). Scott finds out and is not happy about it and wants her to stop...but Sophia does what Sophia wants! Great read and looking forward to reading the other books ...more

This Celebration Series is so good. I really enjoyed each book that has been released and Sophia and Scott's story is no different. Once I picked it up I couldn't put it down. I won't bore you with reiterating the book blurb because you've already read that. Sophia and Scott's relationship has a few twists that they have to decide how to handle. I love how things ended up because it's a perfect place for them to be at in their relationship. I hope to see more of them in future Celebration books. ...more

I am very excited and loving this series by Stacy Eaton!! I was really looking forward to Sophia and Scott's book and I have to say it was another great surprising, suspenseful and loving book!! When Sophia finds out she is pregnant by Scott, she is scared because she has never known love. Can Scott prove to her that he can be that for her and their child?? Definitely a one not hesitate, you will love this book!! ...more

Finally we find out what happened AFTER the auction!

Sophie and Scott's book turned out to be a good one. I knew that Sophie or Sassy Pants as she used to be known as, would be just the goal to school her man on how to treat a modern day woman. Just because they might have been a dancer, or still dance has no bearing on their character.

As always we get to catch up with some of our favorite Celebration friends while reading all about Sassy and Scott.

I absolutely love the Celebration Series. Celebration is a small town where everyone knows and helps each other out. Book 8 is about Sophia and Scott. Sophia is a nurse who needs extra cash to pay for house repairs. She dusts off her dance shoes and becomes a exotic dancer, again. What a great story you will not be able to put it down.
This is a standalone boom with a happy ending.

Sophia and Scott like each other but their work schedules conflict too often to spend much time together. Sophia is incredibly independent and Scott can't seem to say anything right and is dead set against her dancing again, anywhere. Great story with wonderful characters and all the town's people we love. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book. ...more

The celebration series is overall a great read and a fun series - a great concept to focus on a town and a group of people - with recurring characters that you meet in say book 1 or 2 getting their own story in book 4 or 5. Really really like this series. Raffles to rattles is a sweet story that fits into the series well - characters are great and so real.

I really do wish a town like Celebration Township existed. It was so fun catching up with previous characters and falling in love with new ones. Nurse Sophia and paramedic Scott are so adorable together! I read this story too quickly. I was so sad when I realized Id read the last chapter! Can't wait for the mext book. ...more

Sophia seemed to have got things sorted and left the world of dancing behind but life has other ideas. This book brings the characters together and leaves things open to discover more in the next book in the series.

Meet the Dancer and Paramedic

This story is fantastic. You get to meet Sophia who was the former dancer who helped Jason from an earlier story. You get to know Scott the dependable and steady paramedic. Watch the town come alive.
Another awesome book in the Celebration series by Stacy Eaton. I haven’t been able to stop since I began this series. I loved Sophia and Scott’s story. I enjoyed the background on the gentleman’s club and the interaction of the girls.

Stupid couple #2. These two didn’t really stand out in the series, like stupid couple #1 everything would’ve gone a lot smoother if they’d just talked. The club was interesting, and I hope QM gets his own story. It was good as a standalone, otherwise they felt overshadowed.

I've become extremely accustomed to flirty and fun with the Celebration series. Now don't get me wrong, this book has that. I mean seriously, just look at the title. But this book has a very special and important scene in it, and I cried and cried. But it was so beautiful!!!

Ok now on to Harper and Mason! I've loved Harper since we first met her and I've been waiting for her happy ending. And Mason, he's exactly what our girl needs. Sexy and sweet and just everything you want in a guy! They each

Scott goes to a Gentlemen's Club with some friends to scheck it out for a combined bachelor party.
He is surprised to see his ex-girlfriend dancing there.
Scott is in for more than seeing her dance and wanting to get back together again.
Come laugh, love and learn with the people of Celebration.
