I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, new series and all that, but as with every Katie McCoy book I have gotten my hands on it was an entertaining read that I fell in love with. Katie did such a great job delivering a story about two characters that leave you rooting for them but with also some oh no he didn't moments, moments that will have you swooning, ranting and raving, panting from the shear sexiness, and anticipating the next. I highly recommend this read and can't wait for the next in this series.

Disclaimer: ARC received in exchange for an honest review Rascal is the first entry in Katie McCoy’s newest series. It pairs Alexandra (Alex) Matthis and Emerson Hayes following a mildly embarrassing and utterly endearing meet cute over women’s feminine hygiene products that was later complicated by a power outage in an ATM lobby. Almost attorney Alex later discovers that her run-in with Emerson is not a one-off, as he owns and manages the newly-constructed bar below her apartment. From there, their relationship transforms from an awkward introduction, to mildly adversarial tenants, to a fake coupling, before evolving into an actual, honest-to-goodness adult relationship. Of course their relationship is complicated by his social status and its potential benefits to her career, but in the end, Alex and Emerson are able to overcome these obstacles on their way to happily-ever-after. McCoy is excellent at cultivating chemistry amongst her couples, and Alex and Emerson in Rascal are no exception to this. This story is another example of McCoy’s ability to write authentic, real-life relationships that feel genuine and are engaging to romance readers. I will say that, for me, the resolution seemed too easily achieved, to a certain extent. But, the cute, sweet, charming nature of Alex and Emerson’s whirlwind romance is a joy, and negates any minor flaws in the plot. This is a delightful and pleasant start to McCoy’s latest series, and, given the secondary characters introduced in this book (who will surely have greater roles in the future), I anticipate the upcoming installments in the Rascals series.

What a meet cute. If only that really happens. This story, while it was a cute love story, did more to lay the ground work for the series then it did focus on Alex and Emerson (can I say Emerson is an amazing name). I loved that they took it somewhat slow (even if it was like a week and a half before the I love Yous). Again I think this was more laying the ground work for the series and I can't wait to read the love stories of the rest of the gang. I volunteered to read an advance copy.

Rascal had the sexy and the hilarity all wrapped in one! There a few parts I was giggling - Yes giggling- like a school girl. I love the intensity the heat factor level was for Alex and Emerson. There was a little bit of drama that came in and as quickly as that happened, was resolved. Sometimes I need that as a reader. I love a good angst book, but sometimes you just want the issue resolved and move on to the Yummy and Delicious stuff! I was excited reading Rascal as it is the beginning of Katie's new series. I am definitely going to be waiting for Chase's story next!

Funny laugh out loud and a brilliant read. Katie McCoy is the mistress of hilarious Rom/Coms and this first book of the brand new Rascals series just proves it. Rascal was Emerson and Alex’s story. It was sweet and tender, but with moments of gut-busting amusement. (See their first encounter) It also had some super swoony moments that made me go ‘awwww’. Of course there was that one time that Emerson was a bit of a douche, but he made up for it. For me, this was just the perfect book to sit back and relax with a glass of wine and my favorite snack. Not a lot of angst, no O/W or O/M drama and just a lovely ending to a fantastic story. Looking forward to Chase and Kelsey’s story next.

I liked this book but I was not a big fan of the hero. The storyline was cute and entertaining. Add in drama, and humor and you have a good read.

Rascal by Katie McCoy is the adorable book in her new Rascals series. Rascals aptly describes the five friends who have opened a neighborhood pub, also named Rascals. If this first book is any indication, the series is going to be fantastically fun. Rascal features soon-to-be lawyer Alex and Emerson, a would be trust fund “kid” looking to make a living on his own. These two come from opposite ends of the socio-economic ladder, and they come together in an unlikely but hilarious way. Their common values and obvious attraction keeps them together. Rascal is a quick paced, easy read. It is mostly light-hearted and fun. The little conflict comes from parent and co-worker antagonists, and it is easily resolved even though it takes the hero and heroine too long to realize that minor grievances come with every relationship. I enjoyed the dynamics between the main characters, their family, and friends. Rascal is a quick, fun escape from reality with an enjoyable HFN ending.

Definitely my new favorite of Katie McCoy’s books! I’m not just anxious for this new series, but super anxious…super-duper anxious…DYING for the next book level of anxious! Rascal is classic Katie McCoy romance…feel-good love stories with humor, drama, and sizzling chemistry! Rascal wastes no time diving right into its gut-busting degree of hilarity and unforgettable first encounters. Let’s face it…we females at one point in our lives have endured the awkward circumstances that surrounds the purchasing of feminine products. You’d think we’d accept that yes, women get periods. But it doesn’t make the situation less uncomfortable. But throw in a smokin’-hot guy, a clueless store clerk, and an intercom system, and it turns the embarrassment status to critical! See where I’m going here?... I could go on and on about how well written, thoroughly engaging, and utterly SWOONY this story is, but I’m just going to say READ IT. You’ll love it. The humor, the romance, the character development, the heartbreak….all of it. But what I loved most about this book is the author’s portrayal of a headstrong, driven, and inspiring woman that goes after what she wants. And a man that supports her dreams, no matter the cost. 5 Stars!
