Sunshine & Whiskey by R.L. Griffin
Sometimes the best things in life come from the unexpected. So if you lower your expectations, then you’ll never be disappointed. Sound cheesy? It is, but it's also true. Clichés come from a grain of truth…like a man with a Porsche is compensating for something, or once a cheater always a cheater—you get the idea. Sorry, I digress. I'm supposed to be telling you what this book is about.
I'm Megan Walker, a lawyer at one of the hottest boutique law firms in Atlanta. I'm on the fast track to making partner and have my entire life planned out...or I did.
We all know how that goes, right? Best laid plans and all that.
Life just threw me a couple curveballs, so I've set out to take things into my own hands. By throwing caution to the wind and getting out of my A-type personality bubble, I'm learning more about myself than I have in my twenty-seven years.
Sound like a chick flick, doesn't it?

Chad's face is a mask of contradictions and his penis is still hard and he's wearing a condom and he's walking toward me. "Megan, listen, baby, we can work this out."
"Oh yeah, we can?"
"Yes," he says, standing there with his pants at his ankles.
I know I’m repeating myself, but who walks toward his girlfriend with a condom on and pants at the ankles.
"How about this? You both have three minutes to get the fuck out of my house. I'm going to change because I have one of the most important depositions of my life, and I can't go with guacamole on my shirt."
Where is this calm coming from? No idea.
"Baby, come on. Don't overreact."
What a dick, right? Yep, he really says this, to me, while he is standing there with a condom on his dick, his pants around his ankles. The secretary now throws my vibrator on my perfect seven hundred thread count sheets and pulls her dress down from where it was bunched at her waist.
"Oh, you think this is over reacting?" I take a step toward him for the first time since I’ve been here.
Chad takes another step toward me.
I smile. "I think overreacting would be to grab that knife that I cut my cantaloupe with this morning, you know the one that's still on the kitchen counter, and cut your dick and balls off. Then have them mounted. I think that would be overreacting. I, however, am simply asking you to get your shit, your condom, your whore and never come back." Ice enters my veins and voice and he knows I’m not fucking around.
"Megan," his condescending tone blows the roof off my calm.
"Chad..." I use the same tone. "If you aren't gone in,” I look down at my watch, the one he gave me for my birthday, “two minutes now, I'm going to punch myself in the face and then stab you."
He stares at me.
"Heat of passion and all that. I walked in on my live in boyfriend pounding a bitch in my bedroom, using my dirty vibrator...I don't think a jury anywhere would convict me. You?" I smirk and cock my head to the side in a question. At that, I turn and walk into my huge walk-in closet and change my shirt. My closet was the main reason why I bought this house. I have no idea if the shirt I’m pulling off the hanger matches my suit. I’m trying to focus, trying to compartmentalize what just happened.
I look at my phone, I’m running into my cushion.
Sunshine & Whiskey is the story of Megan, a lawyer unhappy with her daily life but not wanting to admit to it until a series of events takes place that leads Megan and her best friend Laura on a trip to self-discovery in a road trip across the U.S.
With Laura's help, Megan gets the push she needs to get out of her comfort zone and reinvent herself into the person she wants to be instead of the person she thought she wanted to be.
Sunshine & Whiskey is all about the beauty of true friendship, discovering one's self, and experiencing life.
Sunshine & Whiskey is laugh out loud humorous. Filled with witty lines, the joys of friendship and the wonder of hitting the road, this book is not only a perfect anytime book, it's the perfect summer read. Guaranteed to have you letting your hair down and wanting to plan a road trip yourself.
I LOVED Megan. I think I have a girl crush on her, lol. Her personality and sense of humor is right up my alley and I instantly liked her character from the moment the book began. I also loved Laura and the friendship they had built over the years.
I could literally gush about Sunshine & Whiskey all day. I fell in love with the plot, the characters, and the settings. This book has everything I search for in a good read and more. Sunshine & Whiskey isn't a book you read just once. Sunshine & Whiskey is one you have to relive and re-read over and over. I will definitely be laying on a beach somewhere and reading this book with my feet in the sand!
I don't want to give too much away with this book, because it's honestly one you have to experience for yourself. What I will say is this book is one that everyone has to read. It will put a smile on your face, warm your heart and make you want a drink in your hand, but oh well.. Bring it on!
The crazy antics between these girls are hilarious so make sure you're reading somewhere where you are comfortable in laughing out loud, because trust me YOU WILL LAUGH OUT LOUD. This book almost killed me! I had the bright idea to read in the tub ... My clumsy self got laughing so hard I threw my head back and smacked in on the wall above the tub... Needless to say I only laughed even harder.
Sunshine & Whiskey is my favorite book of 2015. So pack your bag, jump in the car and join these ladies in the road trip of a lifetime. You won't regret it!
