Review: Stud Muffin by Jiffy Kate

It’s hard to get revenge without getting a rap sheet.

After Tempest Cassidy walks in on her husband banging her high school nemesis, her whole world gets turned upside down. She goes from being known as the Duchess of Muffins to the town crazy. Her new MO: revenge.
Eventually, Tempest grows weary being arrested. Yet what choice does she have? If she’s not angry, then she’s simply . . . sad.

Just as she decides to get her life back on track, in walks Cage Erickson, the new bouncer at the local strip club. He’s scary-handsome and the polar opposite of her ex. She’s attracted to him, but she’s not looking for a rebound. He’s attracted to her, but he’s not looking for a serious relationship. So, they agree to be friends.

But when lines get blurred in the friend zone, will they both get burned? Or will it be a TKO?

I’ll be honest and say that I was really looking forward to reading about Tempest and Cage and this friendship that grows into something more but this story just wasn’t what I thought it was going to be. 

Tempest was a firecracker of a character but not in all the best ways.  Most of the time she was annoying and did not so smart things. I know how hard it can be to deal with anger but some of the ways she dealt with her anger was not the most mature ways.  They were ways that landed her in jail and it took her a while to learn her lesson.

Cage seemed like a decent character throughout the book.  He was levelheaded and interested in Tempest and took his time with her healing.  However, it felt like he had to save her a lot in the book. Anytime Mindy or Asher came around and a disaster was had, he was either right beside her or not to far away to help.  I just that women could save themselves.

I wish I could have really enjoyed this story more but I found things that just didn't settle well with me.
