Bourbon is in Brandon Morgan’s blood. His family owns the best bourbon brand in the country—or it will be with his marketing genius. And after meeting the fiery daughter of a tequila distillery owner, he’s never been more sure.

His barrels, her tequila. It’s a match made in heaven. But only if he can keep his hands off the owner’s daughter…and his secrets to himself.

Lesa Ruiz will do anything to keep Little Possum afloat, but one look at Brandon’s gorgeous dimples and Lesa knows two things for sure: forever is not in the cards with this man and he’s way too sexy to resist for long.

Well, three things… Brandon is hiding something, and she’ll need to get a lot closer to figure it out and save her family’s legacy. Shots, anyone?

This was a really cute story. It had likable characters (both main and secondary) It had humor. It had romance. The writing was engaging and kept me interested. On paper, I should have enjoyed it WAY more than I actually did. Well, that’s not entirely true. I DID enjoy it. I just wasn’t WOWED by it.

First off I would consider this a slow burn. The couple doesn’t have sex until 70% in and even then it’s not overly steamy. Up until that point, they have cute banter and flirty talk. I just never felt a BOOM sexual connection between these two. They came off more like BFF’s than a couple who couldn’t keep their hands off each other. Part of my problem was Brandon. He was a sweet guy, but a little bland and WAY too “beta” for my tastes. Lesa is really the one that does most of the pursuing. I prefer my hero’s to be more alpha and in your face.

Even though this wasn’t a total hit with me, it was still an enjoyable way to spend a few hours.
