Finding in each other an unlikely ally, Jack and D are soon on the run from shadowy enemies.
Readers back for a third round of the bestselling Cocktail series will enjoy a madcap romantic comedy about bodice ripping and chest heaving, fiery passion and love everlasting. Plus a dash of paperwork filing and horseshi—wait, what?
By day, Viv Franklin designs software programs. By night, Vivian’s a secret romance-novel junkie who longs for a knight in shining armor, or a cowboy on a wild stallion, or a strapping fit refighter to sweep her off her feet. And she gets to wear the bodice—don’t forget the bodice.
When a phone call brings news that she’s inherited a beautiful old home in Mendocino, California from a long-forgotten aunt, she moves her entire life across the country to embark on what she sees as a great, romance-novel-worthy adventure. But romance novels always have a twist, don’t they?
There’s a cowboy, one that ignites her loins. Because Cowboy Hank is totally loin-ignition worthy. But there’s also a librarian, Clark Barrow. And he calls her Vivian. Can tweed jackets and elbow patches compete with chaps and spurs? You bet your sweet cow pie.
In Screwdrivered, Alice Clayton pits Superman against Clark in a hilarious and hot battle that delights a swooning Viv/Vivian.
Also within this book, an answer to the question of the ages: Why ride a cowboy when you can ride a librarian? (goodreads)

I was actually surprise that I like this novel. I don't know why romance novels have horrible titles and horrible covers that make them look dirtier than what they actually are. The covers makes it look like a really trashy novel when in reality it's really good. This is the third book in a book series. You don't really need to read the other books to read this book. The only thing that connects it with the other books in the series are character. I really like it. I had only read the first book in this series and skipped the second one and read this one. I was surprise how I like it. It was a fun fluffy read that I really didn't need too think much. I really enjoyed the characters and the romance. The characters were interested enough for me to say invested. You do see appearances of characters from the other novels which is fun to read. I did find it a little irritated when the main character was to narrow minded to figure out what was right in front of her. That she was determine to get with a guy that completely was a douche bag. But I think that is one thing I did liked about the book. The fact that's what novels always do. They always make the female determine to get with the bad boy and the girl to change his ways just to be patient. It was sort of a metaphor that the guy will always be a douche bag. It's good to see the good guy win for a change. I like that the Viv was a determine character except when it came with her fascination with Hank which I disliked as I mention. But overall it was a fast quick read that I really enjoyed. If you like romance novels it's I completely recommend to give it a read. You don't really need to read the other books to understand this book from the series. It could perfectly stand on it's own.
