Set deep in the heart of Texas, bestselling author Kimberly Raye’s sizzling new series proves that men, women, and moonshine make one dangerous combination…
RECIPE FOR DISASTER
The most infamous moonshiners in Lone Star history, the Tuckers and the Sawyers have been feuding for over a hundred years. Sure, the days of buckshot and bloodshed are long gone, but it’s not over yet. To save the family business, Callie Tucker has to find the recipe for the legendary Texas Thunder moonshine. But first she’ll need to make a devil’s bargain—with a red-hot hell raiser named Brett Sawyer.
ROMANCE WITH A KICK
A Sawyer through and through, Brett was raised to never trust a Tucker—especially one as pretty as Callie. But desperate times call for desperate measures. With his ranch going bankrupt, Brett agrees to help Callie find the recipe, sell the rights, and split the profits. Of course, it won’t be easy for these two enemies to work together. But it’s even harder to ignore the sparks of attraction—when just one kiss delivers a kick stronger than any swig of moonshine…
|The book starts off with two Texas families who were one time friends and partners in a moonshine operation until for some reason that no one can remember are now feuding. When the great grandfathers broke the best moonshine in the state neither family had the entire recipe. Callie’s grandfather has been trying to match that taste for years but could not come up with anything close and then was killed in a so called firs from the still blowing up. When they have the funeral and reception in walks rodeo star Brett Sawyer, who wants to tell Callie Tucker he is sorry for her loss. She still remember the night from their prom when he left her in the mountains and she had to walk home. Calling for a ride from her dad both her parents go out to get her when it starts to rain and they are killed in an accident. So not only was she left by a guy she thought she loved, but she lost her parents that night also. She also stayed home instead of going to college to raise her two younger sisters, and try to keep the family ranch going. The last person she wanted to see was Brett. The town though was waiting for the show down between Tucker and Sawyer. She would not give in so she left. Brett trying to save his family ranch also is also dealing with a grandfather with Alzheimer’s and a sister who does not want to go back to college. Callie finds part of the recipe her grand dad was making and because a man came and offered her money she goes to Brett and tells him if he knows the other half they could sell the recipe. This puts them back together to work out their problems. Not a bad story thought it was going to be a little more fun, but overall a good start for a series. I got this book from netgalley.
