Review: Vodka Warrior - Mickey J. Corrigan

Vodka Warrior (The Hard Stuff #2)Vodka Warrior by Mickey J. Corrigan
Nicole's rating: 4 of 5 stars

This may story might only be 55 pages long give or take but Mickey Corrigan manages to pack a hefty punch of hilarity and wit into that short space. It was such a different story to read, a story where I wasn’t entirely sure I liked or could connect to Theresa our self-proclaimed vodka warrior for reasons I won’t go into since it’s a short story and would probably detract from the enjoyment of reading this for yourself but suffice to say by the end of it I pitied her, I disliked her, I envied her and I bloomin’ loved her, all at the same time. She’s brutally honest, loves a drink thanks to her Celtic heritage and her life by all appearances seems to be circling the drain.

Vario, our gorgeous alpha gym warrior with a penchant for hot-tubbing with confectionery named strippers enters the fray and the chaos of Theresa’s life and that is where things get not only pee-your-pants funny for the reader but life altering for our perpetually sloshed heroine. Things always get worse before they get better and so goes the tale of Theresa and Vario.

A lovely light read that was well written from Theresa’s point of view. She’s candid, often pessimistic, but she is so refreshing and sincere. Lovely ending.

The Hard Stuff: Book #2

A lonely divorcee living in a tacky development in Dusky Beach, Florida, Theresa Tierney is an educated hick and her own worst enemy. She has a wild streak and a bit of a drinking problem, both leading to a few too many bad choices.

When her neighbor’s new roommate arrives, a good-looking body god, Theresa is both curious and disgusted. A brash New Yorker, Vario Fumesti says what he's thinking and looks sexy as hell doing it. The brawny mountain of pumped muscle is mega alpha male. But his frequent hot tub parties with friends from a local strip club fire up Theresa’s anger. In fact, Vario continually makes her feel and do things she isn't expecting.

A series of screw-ups, lust, and love set Theresa on a rollercoaster ride that’s out of control and threatening to jump the tracks.
