He tasted like tequila and the fake name I gave him was Rose.

Four years ago, I decided to get over one man, by getting under another. A single night and nothing more.

I found my handsome stranger with a shot glass and charming but devilish smile at the end of the bar. The desire that hit his eyes the second they landed on me ignited a spark inside me, instant and hot. He w

Brody & Magnolia’s story
ღ. This will captivate you from the first page & leave you wanting more at the last one. The chemistry between these two is off the charts hot. This is a well written & very entertaining story.

In full disclosure, I'm a huge fan of everything Willow Winters writes, so I happily jumped into this one, fully expecting a great read, only thing that I didn’t like was the cliffhang

“The one-night stand I had was my first and last.
Because that morning, my life changed forever ... in more than one way.”

Tequila Rose was the first book I read by Willow Winters and I loved it so much!! It was cute, sexy and just lovely! It's about Magnolia, a southern belle going to study away from home and the night that Robert, her high school sweatheart breaks up with her she goes out and meets Brody where they spend the night together.

I have sooooo much to say about this, yet I don't want to ruin it for anyone. So, let me just say these few things-
This ends on a cliffhanger.
I don't like Robert.
I am really upset with Magnolia.
Brody deserves better.

I can't wait until the next one comes out to see where this goes. And if you want to know specifics about my thoughts, feel free to ask :)

Oh boy...what a mess Mags life is and the hits just keep on coming!

I swear, I had no idea this was gonna end in a cliffhanger and I had to scream at ceiling with frustration that I have to find out what happens next with Mags, Robert, and Brody.

Honestly, I don't know how I'm feeling about this story...
This was my first book by Willow Winters and it was a really good story, but from some aspects, I got frustrated very badly, but hopefully, everything will get more clear in the second part of this story...
This was a lovely small town romance with a single mother as the heroine and we could call it a second chance story!!!

These are 3.75 "frustrated" stars right here.
First thing, Tequila Rose is part of a duet so it ends in a cliffy but the second part will come out fairly soon.
Magnolia's boyfriend, Robert, breaks up with her suddenly when she is away to college and she has a drunk "revenge" one night stand with a tall and sexy guy named Brody. Not the best decision, but she was only 21 years old and hurting.
The next day, all hell breaks loose in her life and she leaves his place without getting his number and not

It's been a while since we have had a true contemporary romance from Willow Winters and it was nice to be back in the romance lane, without the suspense elements she is well known for now. Tequila Rose is a small town romance, with a second chance vibe. After a break up in college Magnolia meets Brody and for one single night she gets lost, but by the next day her world is torn apart.

4 years later Magnolia is a single mother, trying to get by with help from her ex and he best friends. She is tr

I NEED MORE! I couldn't get enough of this story! Magnolia and Brody are PERFECTION that I got addicted to with speed of light. And honestly, I have to praise Willow because that lady can do it all - dark mafia romance and even a small town second chance romance. This book has so many amazing cute moments, it's very sweet, but it does have its sexy moments as well. Magnolia and Brody have a great chemistry and you just know those two belong together.

What is in this ladies head to keep coming up with these amazing characters and storylines? Another classic release from Willow Winters as I now expect nothing less from this author. This is story of unexpected meetings, devastation, small town living, and second chances. Brilliant!! A must for every TBR list. 💖💖💖💖💖

After the blurb for this book I was so excited to read because hello.......surprise pregnancy, small town romance and possibly second chance romance, that's my kinda book!

Unfortunately, I couldn't connect with the story and I feel it was because I lost interest which makes me sad because I wanted to love it. Magnolia had been through hell and back I get that, but she couldn't make a decision and it drove me crazy. Robert, well many words come to mind.....conniving, hero complex, jealous.....yeah

Oh, I completely loved this!

Magnolia meets Brody in a chance meeting after being dumped by her high school sweetheart Robert. They have one night together, where Magnolia had to leave suddenly due to a family emergency.

Magnolia and Brody have such an undeniable connection and I loved their interactions with each other. There's drama and romance and all I want is Magnolia and Brody to be together! Lol

This does end on a cliffhanger and I can't wait to see what Willow does in the next book!

The story is about love, about struggle and about the incredible twists of fate. It's a common trope penned in a uniquely uncommon style. It's Willow's style, of course - the one which takes you to the heart of it.

She is in the middle, blindsided and torn by having to choose after thinking she had no choice, and decide between 2 men - one who supported her but took her for granted, and one wanted to support her and saw her for the amazing survivor she was.

It's Willow's talent that makes you fee

We finally know more about “Rose”–who’s actually called Magnolia–and her one night stand companion, Brody. And though there’s still a bit of mystery regarding the father of Magnolia’s daughter, we learn what happened after their night of passion.

That’s some coincidence that Brody ends up in the small town where Magnolia spent her whole life. But once you accept it, and you accept the fact that their unique night together meant so much to both of them, you can actually enjoy the romance. The smal

“Tequila Rose” is a second chance, small town, secret baby novel by Willow Winters. When Magnolia suddenly runs into a man she spent a night with in college, she finds herself in a fearful position due to what became of that night four years ago. Brody has returned to Magnolia’s small hometown to build his business with his friend, and runs into the mysterious girl who went by “Rose” four years ago. Their chemistry has not dulled

I absolutely loved Tequila Rose. This is a truly heart warming love story. Written in dual pov.

After Magnolia gets dumped by her childhood sweetheart & has a pity party for one, drinking wine from a mug & slugging vodka shots.
She makes a decision to hit the local bar, dressed to impress with her red dress & Louis vuitton shoes, she's determined to put her ex Richard behind her !

Perfect Small Town Romance

A small town romance with a big longing heart, Tequila Rose is a perfect read for these cold wintery months.

Magnolia's life is going along quite nicely until she bumps into Brody, the guy she hasn't seen in four years. The chemistry and attraction is still very strong, but Maggie's life is more complicated now, and she is forced to confront secrets she has kept to herself.

This book has a lovely, charming, warm and endearing quality. It is a tale of a classic love affa
Wow, really!

Brady knows that this is the same girl from four years ago, but that can’t be right, her name was Rose. Magnolia freezes when she sees that face, because she didn’t think she would ever see that face again.

I really like Brody, but Magnolia, I’m not so quick to jump on her fan bandwagon. I know she’s had a rough time of it lately, but she doesn’t like the town talking but yet she’s letting her ex help her in more ways than one. My feeling on Robert is why has he not stepped up to dec

Tequila Rose is a true contemporary romance, a sweet and light read, with a bit of mystery in there too. I haven’t read much of Willow’s work, but I enjoyed the story of Magnolia in this book, it’s a small-town second chance story.

After a breakup from her hometown boyfriend Robert in college, Magnolia goes to the nearest bar and meets Brody, but tells him her name’s Rose. The next day, she receives devastating news and leaves quickly, without waking him. Four years later, she is back i

Tequila Rose is a great start to this series and will leave you wanting more!

First off this book will leave you on a cliffhanger but I knew that going in so I was ready. Magnolia and Brody met for the first time while she was nursing a broken heart and when a disaster struck she never saw him again. Now here we are years later when life has changed completely and the Rose he knew is now the Magnolia he wants again.

This was a fast paced contemporary romance with second chance vibes set in a small town with some angst. It was a charming story with some flashbacks mixed in. It was a triangle of sorts as Magnolia is tangled with Robert her ex and Brody the one who sets her on fire.

It had lots of sweet and swoony moments mixed with hot chemistry.It was a great book but when the story just started to pick up it was done. And although Magnolia has been through a lot I felt like she didn't have a backbone. I rea

I want to love this book so much. I was so excited for this book because it's a surprise pregnancy, single parent, small town. All the things I loved and looked for in a book, but while I still enjoyed it, there were some things that it's totally not my cup of tea. I was still intrigued as to what's going to happen next though. I NEED ANSWERS! Lol

I loved the hero, Brody. His backstory was still somewhat mysterious, but a super, sweet alpha man. As for Magno

I always find the switch to Willow’s contemporary romance refreshing. I love a small town romance and that is exactly what you get with Tequila Rose set in Beaufort, South Carolina. This is a super slow burn and ends just when the plot thickens. Magnolia finds herself in a precarious situation when her two worlds collide- her old love and her one night stand comes to town and oh, an impossibly cute 3 year old in the middle. For girl who’s already known the towns scorn she is not ready to be the ...more

What would you do if your world flipped upside down? What decisions would you make in the heat of it all?
I really loved how this story starts right out in the thick of heartache and then dives deep into the clenches of what happens when your world if turned inside out. How relationships change in the seasons of need.
This book is a story of a once in a lifetime chance encounter, but it is actually the second encounter that gets you. So much is hidden between the lives of these characters. You w
