Don’t sleep with your best friend.
Take it from me. I did it. And it was awful.
I-wish-the-tequila-made-me-forget kind of bad.
The problem is, Luke has forgotten. He swears that he can’t remember a thing about that night beyond the trays of tequila shots being set on the tables.
Except I can’t forget. I can’t forget how good his hands felt until I fell over and hit my hip on the dresser, and I sure as hell can’t forget the entire two minutes of tap-tap-squirt.
Awkward. Embarrassing. And the new subject of a couple of dirty lucid dreams.
But I have no intention of telling him what we did. Nothing good comes from telling your best friend he’s the worst guy you’ve ever slept with.
Which makes the tequila on my birthday a very, very bad idea…

One drunken night. One awkward encounter. With her latest release, Tequila Tequila, Emma Hart brings in a fiery yet doused with a slow burn friends-to-lovers story. I’m weak for this kind of trope and so as expected I breezed through reading this book. Especially with that first chapter. It’s just one of those chapters wherein I know I have to keep going even though it will pain me (lol) to know what will happen to Luke and Aspen and how they’re going to move from such an awkward life event. Awkward yet entertaining for us, readers, and oh the secondhand embarrassment you’ll get from these two.
“Every day, every time I looked at Luke, it seemed like I had a reason to look at him in a new light, and looking at him as anything other than my best friend felt weird. Not wrong, but weird.”
Aspen’s thought process on the changes that she felt within herself and nailing down her exact feelings towards Luke were certainly an enjoyable feat. How badly she wants to suppress her thoughts from the not-so-tequila-induced night then how it abruptly turns panicky and mushy over Luke. Moments like those makes me feel how close her character is to reality. Come on, I’m sure all of us had those sudden 360/180 degrees change of mind wherein our heart tries to take hostage of it. On the flip side, there were also meh and cringe-worthy thoughts x decisions that she made. Bearable tho. Luke…a baby boy. I’m glad there were people around him who spoke some sense into him and for him to man up.
“It was ironic. The thing we were most comfortable with in our relationship was the thing making us so uncomfortable moving forward.”
Really, Aspen and Luke’s friendship is so precious which makes their fear in rocking the boat totally understandable. It’s somewhat they’re each other’s safe haven and taking their relationship further is a risk. Yes, things could turn out so well and they’d end up marrying each other. But it isn’t certain while the scary consequence that everything could possibly crash and burn around them is up in the air. Such a tough situation for Aspen and Luke to be in. There were moments wherein I really felt super frustrated with them (just be with each other, you two!!!) but at the end of the day, those frustrations became worth it as they realize more how they just click. How perfectly fit they are for each other. How they could choose to be best of friends and at the same time, be each other’s special someone.
“Love is easy. Relationships are hard. But, if you love someone enough, nothing is ever too hard to fight for.”
All in all, Tequila Tequila was a fun read with just the perfect recipe of a friends-to-lovers book. You’ll definitely enjoy the burn. Though, it’s a burn that you’d actually be craving for more even after the epilogue.
