Review: WINE HARD, BABY by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes an Enemies-to-Lovers, Romantic Comedy.

SERIES: OHellNo #6

CAUTION: CONTAINS HOT COWBOY. Do not mix with wine. Avoid watching him do shirtless labor on hot days. 
SIDE EFFECTS MAY INCLUDE: Feeling of extreme temptation, excessive drooling over his abs, elevated heart rate, and loss of coherent thoughts when in his presence. 

My name is Camila Clark. And that sexy cowboy right there? The one with the devilish smile, twinkling brown eyes, and tattoos on his muscular arms? He’s Jed, the guy I turned down flat back in Texas. He just showed up here in Oregon at the winery where I work. The question is why? Not that it really matters. I have my reasons for staying away from all that manly temptation. Reasons he can’t possibly understand but seems determined to punish me for. But the more I fight him, the more I learn about this mysterious, hot-as-hell cowboy. I just don’t know how much longer I can keep pretending to hate him. The problem is, I’m technically engaged to a guy I’ve never met.



I could sum up this review with just two words: hottie cowboy. In all seriousness though, Wine Hard, Baby is a fun and quick read that features a drool-worthy male lead, a sassy pants heroine, and a whole lot of zany antics.  This book was exactly what I needed to lift my spirits as I’ve been feeling down and anxious during this pandemic.  I was laughing to the point of crying, thus causing my husband to give me the side eye.  What can I say? This author tickles my funny bone.  

Camila is a quirky numbers nerd who is at times a hot mess with a conflicted heart.  She makes some rather bone-headed decisions that create a bit of chaos and while I found some of her actions to be a bit over the top, it is one of the reasons that I love this author’s writing so much. As for Jed, I found him positively endearing.  This charming Southern boy has his own secrets and he is inexplicably drawn towards Cami. Some the scenes between them had me spewing coffee all over my kindle, but there was also sweetness and a good underlying message to the story. If you are looking for an entertaining romantic comedy, then you will want to check out Wine Hard, Baby and the rest of this author’s OHellNo series!  I read a complimentary version of this book.
