He’s keeping me up all night long…
Emerson Hayes is sexy, arrogant, and has abs that would put a Hemsworth to shame. He’s also opening a bar with his buddies right below my apartment. Goodbye, peace and quiet, hello sleepless nights fantasizing about my hot new landlord…

But when my stuffy workplace makes it clear I need a plus-one for our events, I have the perfect way to even the score. Emerson is A+ arm-candy… as long as I can resist taking a bite. Our arrangement is supposed to be just for show, but Emerson is like that fifth shot of tequila: tempting, intoxicating, and liable to leave me flat on my back with my panties around my ankles, begging for more.

Maybe I should stay for just one more round…

Rascal is classic Katie McCoy romance…feel-good love stories with humor, drama, and sizzling chemistry!” Beneath the Covers blog

“This is a romantic comedy at its finest. There was the McCoy’s signature humor, heat, heart and the sprinkle of drama that we all know and love.” Marie’s Tempting Reads

“This story is a fun read, lots of LOL moments and there is plenty of electrifying chemistry between Alex and Emerson, you may need A/C to get through the book.” CC Reads blog

“I loved Rascal. It started off so sweet, fun and sexy and did not have any unnecessary drama. The love story between Emerson and Alex was a joy to read!” Goodreads


Rascal was just the light-hearted and feel-good romantic comedy that I needed. It’s a fast paced story, which definitely sets the tone for the book because as much as Emerson Hayes and Alex Mathis don’t feel like they have time for a relationship, the fact that sparks fly during their first awkward and hysterical interaction and then turn into flames that continue to burn brightly despite their respective needs to focus on their careers, everything seems to occur in warped speed and that works for me because sometimes unnecessary drama is added and it doesn’t fit the reality of the book. So, while things definitely occur quickly, it just illustrates the kind of instant chemistry that Emerson and Alex have, and it points to how good these two can be together as their time together extends and their relationship grows.

Both Emerson and Alex are extremely likable characters and their exchanges with one another are humorous, sweet, and flirty. They both have goals they want to achieve and once they decide to give into what they feel for one another, they support each other and never stop believing that they can achieve their individual dreams while still being together.

The secondary characters add so much to the storyline, especially Emerson’s partners. The way they have each other’s back and work together to achieve success is what anybody would want in a group of friends, and while they give one another shit, it’s clear it’s all in good fun because when it matters, they stand united.

Rascal is a great start to Katie McCoy’s new Rascals series; the name of the bar, Rascal, fits its vibe and it also describes its owners quite nicely, and I can’t wait to see what these Rascals have in store for readers as the series continues and each one meets his match!
