Ready for another round? Ava Grace Landy’s music career is humming along until a shakeup at her label jeopardizes her recording contract and curses her with the world’s worst boss. Determined to satisfy him, she partners with Trinity Distillery to access a larger male audience. To her surprise, she’s the one who’s satisfied—by none other than Jonah Beck, the gorgeous, yet gruff man behind the bourbon. No doubt about it, bourbon runs in Beck’s blood. But it’s audacious Ava Grace who makes it run hot. When she signs on as the spokesperson for his craft distillery, he doesn’t plan on hoisting her onto an oak barrel and rocking the rickhouse. Though he’s convinced their lives don’t mix—like a terrible cocktail—he can’t keep his hands off the alluring country star. Ava Grace and Beck try to keep their intoxicating relationship private, but the glare of her fame is too bright, revealing secrets they both want to remain hidden. With a spotlight shining on his tumultuous past, their future is at risk. Now they must decide if being together is worth sacrificing the career she loves and the company he’s poured his heart and soul into. 

This book was just like the bourbon featured in it. Just about perfect, enjoyable, and smooth. There was some angst, and there was some drama, as you expect that in a book about a relationship. There were a couple of times when I wanted the 2 main characters to talk to one another, but that happens in a lot of books...and in life itself, so that worked for me.

The chemistry is wonderful and watching Beck try to deny how badly he wants to be involved with Ava Grace was not only compelling, but emotional and a wonderful slow burn to the first scene in the rickhouse...and his reaction.

I really liked the characters in this book, I believed them and their actions, even when they were not communicating with one another. And, this is always a nice place to find yourself as a reader, believing the characters. It helped at the end, the big break up scene, that you believed them. were they right? No. Did they figure it out? Yes, of course they did. But, did I believe that 2 real people would handle it in about the same way? Yes, I did.

This is my first title by this author, and I enjoyed it. I am looking forward to the next in the series.
