"I know I don't deserve your forgiveness but I'm hoping you'll choose to give it to me anyway, because you are the one I can see forever with. You f*cking own me...This is yours. I AM YOURS."

The intensity of the feelings that I had while reading this book threw me into a tailspin of dizzying and copious amounts of profanity, content sighs, and true enough, happy and frustrated tears. LEGIT TEARS. This one will rip you up one side and soothe down the other and you will love every minute. This is

⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2.
Hudson & Lennon. Book 2of 2. Mostly told from Lennon's POV. It ends with a HEA and an epilogue.

Book 2 picks up where Book 1 left off. Lennon quickly forgives Hudson and they begin the difficult task of keeping a relationship alive and thriving when trust is a factor. Hudson’s singing career has taken off, so he needs to go on an 8 month tour with another female artist which puts their relationship to the test.

I thought Lennon was a little bit of a Debbie Downer and wasn’t the same f

First of all, I would like to thank the author for giving me this book along with the first because book one ended with a cliffhanger. It was very kind of her and in my mind, she got points for that. I liked tequila burn less than I liked tequila haze because Lennon kept getting on my nerves. She tired me and I couldn't understand why she was acting like that for most of the book. She kept doubting Hudson and it drove me insane because Hudson was always proving that he was devoted and in love wi ...more

I was absolutely thrilled to receive book two, The Tequila Duet. Written by the amazing Melissa Toppen. It concludes with the romance between Hudson and Lennon. Such a beautiful book!!

Looking back five years ago Lennon can still remember the time she fell in love. We can remember times, we thought were just perfect. But sadly enough we were so completely wrong. This is how Lennon was feeling right about now. After now meeting Mrs Stephanie Demasi. The woman who is ma

This book just kept getting better! The beginning picks up where Tequila Haze left off. I think the author did a great job of telling the life of a country music star, especially how it's not easy making a relationship work. Hudson goes on tour where he is faced with temptation and the label is telling him to act a certain way. Lennon deals with jealousy and insecurity. They really struggle with how they are feeling from being away from one another for long periods at a time. They fight

Hudson and Lennon are a couple to be read. This duet is beautiful and I am happy to add Melissa to my go-to authors. This book brought the duet to a whole nother level. It has an array of emotions that it was sometimes hard to keep up. I had to stop reading so that I could take a breather and come back. If you have any time at all READ THIS DUET! Loved it.

5 Stars from Sammy's Book Obsession!
I absolutely LOVED this book as well as the first one in this duet! I'm just going to leave this review similar to my review of Tequila Haze, because I don't want to chance giving anything away! There is nothing this book doesn't have! It's the whole package! Independent woman, great BFF, amazing one-night stand (or is it??), and a little fate.
The writing, grammar, character development, and flow of the whole story is on point all the way through! Even the s
This is book is the conclusion to the Tequila Duet and is not a standalone. In terms of this! After the drama at the end of Tequila Haze I could not wait to dive into this one! Hudson's secret was huge and their love so new! Thankfully, this particular issue was resolved fairly quickly.
The main content of this book is the navigation of the relationship. There is love. No doubt about it. But is it love always enough? That's the bigger question. At this point, Hudson is a country musi

I couldn’t wait for the conclusion of Hudson and Lennon’s love story and I wasn’t disappointed. But damn it these two couldn’t catch a break. After that gasping cliffhanger in Book 1 I thought oh no what now. That issue was resolved pretty quickly and they continued where they left off. But of course this was too good to be true.

Lennon and Hudson had another misunderstanding which had my heart breaking for both of them. Hudson always tried everything to make sure she knew how much he loved her

Tequila Burn is the second book in the Tequila Duet and Melissa Toppen gave us a wonderful conclusion to this story. After the dramatic cliff-hanger from book 1 this book continues seamlessly with Lennon and Hudson's story.
This story was emotional and angsty. Its a story about relationships and jealously and trust are major issues in this story. In true Melissa Toppen style you will experience all the feels here as you take this journey with Hudson and Lennon.
This was a fantastic read. I reall

Tequila Burn is the conclusion to Hudson and Lennon’s story. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book after the ending of book one! Ms. Toppen’s writing keeps getting better with every book she puts out. Very satisfied with the way things turned out!

Review for both books...

A non spoiler review....

From the moment they met it was an undeniable attraction.
From many bumps in the road, to a relationship that bloomed into a beautiful love. Oh and let’s not forget the tequila shots because there were many.
I adored Hudson, he has this way about him that’s comforting and real. He wasn’t that cocky arrogant singer many hate or hate to love, however he was a man of his word, he was a man of talent and a man that will protect you without limits. His

After the way Melissa Toppen ended Tequila Haze on a suspenseful cliffhanger, I was extremely eager to dive into Tequila Burn. Lennon and Hudson’s love story is exquisite!

“You’ve got me, Lennon Claire. As long as you want me I’m yours.”

This second installment faced this couple with a lot of hardship! While they love each other profoundly, Hudson being on tour for months brings fragility into this new relationship. Lennon struggles with being away
4 Stars

If you're looking for a story that will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions, look no further.

After the cliffhanger in the first book, I couldn't get my hands on this one fast enough. Although I understand why it happened, I felt the guilty party was forgiven too quickly and I wanted some more groveling. Although it may seem brushed under the rug, the lingering doubts left behind continue to manifest and compound on itself until their world implodes. Unlike the first book, the angst wa

Nice if not completely satisfying...

I adore Lennon and Hudson, I fell in love with their story in Tequila Haze and was eagerly awaiting Tequila Burn. So here are the good and bad...good, Lennon and Hudson still have amazing chemistry. They are madly connected and their story is fantastical as well as believable (the ups and downs of dating a star) but in the end the negatives outweighed the positive for me...making this follow up less than satisfying. My main issue was the trust issue. I underst

Tequila Burn was the perfect conclusion to Tequila Haze!

Hudson, country superstar & Lennon, the girl who loves him, are faced with the struggles of making a new relationship work while being apart for most of it. There are real fears stopping them from making it work, even though all either of them want is to be together.

There are loads of ups and downs. Tears and fears. Even heartbreak that will have you cry a little. But in the end, their HEA isn’t gone for good.

Is it?
4 'Timing Be Damned' STARS

If you haven't read Tequila Haze check that out first. Go now.

Hudson Demasi—the tight blue-jean wearin' country rock star. Singing isn't the only good thing he does with his mouth. Hudson is a sweet talker and a damn good lover. A real Southern gentleman with a bit of a possessive streak.

But every man has his secrets.
Shit that he would rather avoid until the worst possible moment.
Oh boy does Hudson have some explaining to do.

Timing has never been Hudson and Lennon'
Tequila Burn is part of a duet and book two and you must read book one, Tequila Haze before reading this book. I will warn you after your Tequila hangover is gone that you will need to read these books back to back as they are that good and that cliffy leaves you wanting to either stay drunk or start a fight. Fitting for someone who drinks the hard stuff, huh! Best way to say this to avoid any spoilers.

I loved the conclusion to Lennon & Hudson's story.❤️ It was perfect! I really enjoyed reading/witnessing how Hudson & Lennon navigated their relationship through both of their POVs. Lennon's worries & concerns about if they were going to make it through all the obstacles that they had to face or were thrown at them. I loved how open she was in expressing those feelings to Hudson.❤️ I absolutely loved how honest Hudson was about his feelings and his willingness/desire for Lennon to be open and wa ...more

I went through an array of emotions throughout it and would not change it for anything. Yes there were times in Tequila Burn that I just put down the kindle and walked away. It's that good.

This story begins where Book 1 of the Tequila Duet ended. We feel Lennon’s shock & betrayal in the beginning of the book. She has trust issues due to her last relationship and then finding out Hudson was keeping a major secret from her. So she runs and refuses to talk to Hudson.
Eventually Hudson is able to explain and they make up. He wants to take things slow, because he wants to win her trust but Lennon moves forward quickly.
I felt she was still harboring trust issues and this could make thi

Tequlia Burn by Melissa Toppen is the second book in the Tequila Duet and the conclusion to Hudson and Lennon´s story.

Tequila Burn picks up where Tequila Haze left off. The book is not a standalone , I strongly recommend to read the books in order.
Hudson´s big secret is about to revealed and that will crush Lennon. He loves her with all of his heart, but sometimes love isn´t enough.
While I really loved the first pasrt of Hudson and Lennon´s story - they´re so great together - this second part ha

The night I met Hudson Demasi I smiled at his witty banter and gorgeous smile. I fell for the sexy, teasing man. I fell for the instant chemistry. I fell into the fairytale. But not all fairytales have happy endings and the end of Tequila Haze had me plotting Melissa Toppen's take down. Tonya Harding style. Legit considering best way to approach and execute attack without being obvious.

However, the voice of reason was shouting in my ear. Or Tequila Burn was already present and accounted for on

Tequila Burn picks up where Tequila Haze left off and holy geez didn’t it leave off with with a hella cliffhanger which brings us to the newest hurdle for them to jump.

I loved this book even more then the first. My favorite part of the second book was how the author wrote it so you could feel the connection to the emotions that the characters we're going through in the book. This is the second book in the duet with Lennon and Hudson being our main characters. The first book ends with a little bit of a cliffhanger not knowing what's going to become of them. I feel like the second book was so much more emotional and I can totally

I absolutely adored this duet and the second part was great and I got loads of feels from it. I just couldn't believe how the first part of Tequila Burn played out.  I really can't say what happens but it would have gone so different, time wise to sort things out in my world.

Lennon came across as very timid in this book and I really didn't get that from her character in Tequila Haze and I was puzzled to say the least. I really loved Hudson and although I wanted to slap him on occasion

Tequila Burn is part two of the Tequila Duet and the first book needs to be read first. This is not a standalone novel.

Burn picked up right where Haze left off and boy was the secret Hudson was keeping a big one. This book will take you on a wild roller coaster of emotion. There were times I wanted to hate Hudson with every fiber of my being, but I just couldn't. His love for Lennon won me over hands down. Lennon struggles with her own internal issues and lot of insecurity.

The two have their up

Ok...Melissa has done it again! This is the epic conclusion of Lennon and Hudson's story. We pick up where we left off in Tequila Haze, so if you haven't pick up that bad boy, do that now! Then you'll be ready to dive into this one.
Trust has been broken, hearts have been crushed. Lennon has been in hiding, only coming out for her grandmother. The only reason she's back for the tour is the threat of a lawsuit. Can she overcome the hurt and heartache she's gone through over Hudson?
