ARC Review: Sip Sip Bang Bang by Danika Stone
Sip Sip Bang Bang is such a classic action story (with a side of romance, of course)! Everything that can go wrong, will go wrong, but you know it’s all gonna be ok at the end. If you love the urgency and energy of Speed, you’ll love this! Check out my 4 star review below!

College student Haylee Campos is living the New York dream. She’s landed an impressive publishing internship at Folio-Echo, made great friends, and is finally starting to feel at home in the city. At work, Haylee spends her time putting out fires and, of course, making the occasional coffee run to Caffeine, the shop across the street. In spite of her mother’s worries, Haylee’s life is practically a Taylor Swift song. Until she gets caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Trapped in Caffeine by a group of rogue criminals, Haylee and Carter (the super hot barista whose inability to get her order right is what landed Haylee in this situation in the first place!) must rely on their extensive knowledge of action movies in order to save themselves and the other café customers. But time is running out…
If you’ve read any Danika books, you know you’re in for good banter and a story that keeps you fully engaged. Sip Sip Bang Bang carries on her tradition and kicks it up a notch. Multiple POV kick you in and out of different storylines and view points, leaving you frantically turning the pages to get back to the previous page’s action. It’s the best game of whiplash!
Haylee and Carter were such a treat. The mix of “everything that can go wrong, will go wrong” and “you’re in the exact place you’re meant to be” shines in their story. Is this a story of social glue or will their shared chemistry leave them in a good place? Guess you’ll have to read to find out!
I also loved the side characters, with Haylee’s friends and family providing just enough friction to make you laugh and shake your head at the same time. This quick read is worth your time so get those TBRs ready!
