(Hope Town #4)

It was supposed to be fun.
A mutual use of each other's bodies.
To be a ruse to the world around us.

I wanted to be free from my ex, and he wanted to escape his.
One drunken night turned a joke into a life-changing moment.
He warned me not to fall for him, and I should've listened.

He intoxicated me.
He made me crave him.
He ruined me.
In the end, I'll never be the same.

This is such a hard post to make.
One that I had hoped, really hoped, I wouldn’t have to make.
But, the reality is … I can’t change the outcome here and as much as I know I’m going to be disappointing a lot of people, it’s something I have to do.
I have no good excuses for you all except the truth.
Due to the health setbacks that I’ve had since the start of this year, I’m unable to get Drunk on You ready for the March 14th release. Sure - I could power some words out, rush it through edits, and give you something – however, it would be a story I produced while compromising the integrity of my writing. I don’t want to give you a watered down, rushed story just for the sake of getting it out. I want to give you all quality work and give Shane and Nikki the story they deserve. For that reason, the preorder for Drunk on You is going to be coming down.
The story will still be coming – but it will be after the release of Lost Rider on April 25th. Right now, I need to focus on my health and get Drunk on You finished and polished to perfection.
It kills me to let you guys down. I’m gutted to have to pull back Drunk on You, knowing that I’m going to be upsetting the amazing readers that I’m blessed to have in my life – but please know how deeply sorry I am that I couldn’t get this done on time.
I love you all and I hope that you’ll give Drunk on You a chance when it comes out.

I’ve been waiting for another Hope Town book for the longest time, and I was so happy when Shane and Nikki’s story landed on my kindle! The Hope Town series is a spin off series of Harper’s Corps Security books. The last one was about Ember (Maddox’s daughter) and Nate (Axel’s son). Although Nikki and Shane aren’t Corps Security kids, Shane is Nate’s business partner and friend, and Nikki is Ember’s bff.

Shane and Nikki both have the same problem. They both have a dreaded ex that won’t

Drunk On You is Harper Sloan's fourth release from her Hope Town series and follows Nikki and Shane, whom you've met already if you've read this series. Both are dealing with crazy exes that don't want to leave them alone and also their attraction to each other that seems to have doubled in heat since they've both learned the other is single. Which leads to the perfect idea for how to get both of their annoyances out of the way, start fake dating.

Yeah, Harper Sloan always gives us smoking hot books, but ladies, this one was OFF THE CHARTS!!! One of the hottest books I have ever read, without a doubt. So considered yourselves warned – Panties may self combust with Mr. Control Freak himself, Shane Kingston! ;)

A solid 4 stars ! Harper Sloan is truly a master at true romance with easy characters to cheer on. I will never get tired of her books and the happiness they bring me. Loved Shane & Nikki together. They were both great strong characters and the sexual heat between these two was off-the-charts HOT!

Boy, do I love this series! Harper Sloan never fails to deliver a love story full of emotions. Having these characters still around brings me so much happiness because I don't think I will be able to handle saying goodbye to my beloved Corps Security and Hope Town crew when the time comes. Thank God there is more coming our way!

Overall Opinion: This was a fun, sexy, light read. It had a good bit of ex drama, but it was pretty low angst in the long run. I enjoyed it for what it was, but I wasn't really expecting anything super deep and meaningful. We do get a little deeper into the characters, but I wanted more. I also wanted a little bit more of them spending time together that wasn't just sex. Yes, the scenes were hot -- but I wanted to watch them connect more on an emotional level. Overall, an enjoyable rea

Obsessed. Intoxicated. Addicted. Yup, those three words pretty much sums up my love for Harper Sloan and her books. There is just something so spellbinding and beautiful the way Harper writes a love story. She allows her readers like myself to get drunk on her words, characters, and the raw emotions she evokes. Whether there be a little drama or angst thrown into the mix, she definitely doesn’t forget the alpha male characters who makes the

Drunk on you is positively addicting.

Shane and Nicole had been acquaintances through their best friends for years. They shared a mutual attraction to each other for years but have not been able to act on it because they had been in relationships themselves. But after a year of failing miserably to make sure their crazy, stalkery, cheating exes understood that they were unequivocally over, Shane and Nicole decide help each other out by acknowledging their attraction and start a mutually benef

I have been invested in the crew from The Corps Security Series since I originally read them and then, of course, I have followed their kids in the spinoff series: the Hope Town Books.

Drunk on You was the fourth book in the Hope Town series by Harper Sloan.

Shane Kingston was the gorgeous ex stripper and current co-owner of the Dirty Dog Club. He was also the best friend to Nate (When I’m With You, book 3). He was guarded, controlled, brooding and uber sexy.

Nicole “Nikki” Clark was the hilarious, smart, independent, driven and beautiful best friend to Ember (When I’m With You, book 3).

Both were running from cheating exes where they had been broken up for a year, but neither

I liked the heroes.
Both are coming out of relationships where partners cheated them and are reluctant to get involved with new people.
The story has developed well and held my attention from start to finish.
Their interaction with the secondary characters was good and the craziness of the exes, too.
I'm a little tired of the whole BDSM thing, but didn't spoil the story.
You finish the reading with a good feeling and feeling that the characters are old friends that you're willing to meet again.

I was so happy when I found out that this book was about Nikki after meeting her in the previous book she was just so freaking funny and deserved her own HEA and Shane is a HEA any red blooded female would want.

Nikki is Ember’s best friend and they have been together through everything. It’s been a year since she found her ex Seth cheating on her and he still hasn’t got the message that she never taking him back, after a night out at Nate and Shane’s club she decides that her and Shane could hav
The Romance Book Disciple (Samantha)

Drunk on You is part smoking hot Dom/sub story, part fake relationship romance. Shane is a former stripper who now owns a bar with his friend, Nate. Dirty Dog (the bar) is one of the  most popular bars in town and that is due partly to the hottie bartends (with Nate and Shane occasionally) dancing on the bar top! Shane feels that he can't really have a relationship because no woman would be okay with his job, even though he doesn't take his clothes off. His ex, Lacey, didn't seem to mind..

Somehow this got buried on my kindle, so during this wonderful world of shelter-in-place I've been rereading some of my favorite series. Shane is Nate's business partner and BFF, and Nikki is Shane's wife, Ember, bff. Nikki and Shane hookup to try to get rid of their ex's who just won't go away. This evolve and they fall in love. Shane loves to be in control and loves to redden her arse, but of course, he a guy and does something stupid that he has to apologize for.

I was drunk on this book! I loved it! Harper Sloan really sucked me in on this one.

I loved Nikki and Shane. They had great chemistry and both very likable. What I wasn't a fan of was the insta-trust that happened in the book. There's a BDSM aspect in this book and I felt that even though they knew each other for years that sort of trust doesn't just happen. It wasn't believable to me and kinda brought me out of the book for a bit.

That being said, I did love them as a couple. Both Nikki and Shane
I don't know do I have amnesia or what but based on my star rating I loved first three book in this series but I just can't remember them much....
This was definitely a book with a lot of sex in it.
Nothing really happened with the story and that, that did happen was just meh.

Let's start with... this book was SO worth the wait.
Love and banter so well balanced you forget you're actually reading a book.

Harper Sloan has this way of writing, that feels more like you're catching up with old friends. You instantly get wrapped and lost in her world that it seems like no time has passed. You pick up where you left off without a hitch. I also hope Ms. Sloan knows she needs to write books for everyone in Hope Town. EVERYONE. From the kids that the sexy Corps Sec

I’ve been waiting for Drunk On You forever and I must say this book fell flat for me. There were parts of this book that I absolutely loved and parts of it that I found myself skipping through.

Nikki and Shane have had crushes on one another for what seems like forever, but have never made a move. Both have an ex that needs to be out of their lives, so when an opportunity presents itself to be in a “relationship” with one another to get rid of thei

“Until this moment, I never would have guessed I had a docile bone in my body, but there is no doubt that Shane dominates every single part of me. Body and Soul.”

“He’s such a contradiction. One moment, he’s holding himself back with that control he drives himself with as if it’s more an armor, and the next, he’s gentle and almost sweet.”
