This book 2 in the "Cocktail " series and it did not disappoint me at all. This is the continuation of the story between Caroline Reynolds and Simon Parker. The couple have been spending as much time together as possible and enjoying their new status as an "us". Their friends Mimi and Ryan are now engaged and their friends Sophie and Neil are on the outs which causes some interesting dinner parties and game nights. They have agreed to house sit for Caroline's boss/friend as her and her new husband go away on a European honeymoon. Caroline has also taken on the responsibility of running the design company while the newlyweds are away. Simon and Caroline find themselves getting very comfortable playing house and realize the next step to their relationship may be a little more permanent. Caroline begins to get very stressed by all her new found projects and tasks at work and Simon decides to take some downtime for himself which all leads to the inevitable question of whether or not these two have what it takes to live happily ever after. Also Clive is back bringing his own little furry twist to things. This is still not the end of Simon and Caroline's story but it dies introduce Vivian a badass software developer who is a childhood friend of Simon's. She is the main character in the next book Screwdrivered. I am so ready for book 3.
