Rock star, River Jackson, is back in his hometown of Glastonbury to open a cocktail bar… and the locals aren’t impressed.

Seductive Georgina is proving too hot to handle; band mate, Angelic Alice, is messing with his heart and his head; his mum is a hippie-dippy liability; his school friends have resorted to violence – oh, and his band manager, Lennie, AND the media are on his trail.

But River is armed with a magical Mexican elixir which will change the lives of the Three Chosen Ones. Once the Mexican wave of joy takes a hold of the town, he’s glad he didn’t lose his proverbial bottle.

Pity he hasn’t taken better care of the real one.


This is the first time for me to read book written by Isabella May and in the beginning I needed a little time to get used to here writing style and understand story that she want to tell us. But the more I read the more clearer everything became.

River, the main character, is an ex rock star who decided to open cocktail bar. But it’s not as easy as it seems. Especially when you add to ladies: seductive Georgina who has her own motivation and his ex band mate Alice. I love that in this triangle there is one man and two women. Most books I had opportunity to read were opposite and I love this unique change.

It was a really funny and magical (due to Mexican Elixir) read. I recommend this book for people who love romance books full of humor. And who love cocktails obviously.
