Office supply addict Eve McGrath's meticulously organized life is on the verge of crashing at her feet. Blue Mountain distillery's new tasting and visitor center has to be finished pronto or her mother will lose her mind. Good thing Eve likes a challenge—which is exactly what she'll face trying to convince the flaky contractor's hot son to finish the job.
Nick Baker is back in Kentucky just long enough to get his wayward dad back on his feet. Then he's gone. Unfortunately, he can't resist helping Eve, the sexy distiller-in-distress, whose addictive, bourbon-flavored kisses threaten his carefully constructed boundaries. And if he can't rein himself in, the uncomfortable secrets of past will nail him to the wall..
|Nick Baker is back in Kentucky because his father is in the hospital after drinking too much and injuring himself. Now in the hospital they don’t want to release him because they found some other issues, one being he drinks too much. Nick also knows that his father has a job to do and is really not wanting to help him out. That is until Eve McGrath shows up at the soon to be Blue Mountain Distillery tasting room and visitor center. Having hired Nick’s father and now seeing Nick she wants to hire him, she also sees a few things that he has built and knows he can do the job but is wondering why he lives in Tennessee, and he really has not a steady job for 5 years. Nick really is attracted to Eve but is worried about his sobriety working at the distillery. The author does a good job of incorporating Nick going to AA meetings and talking to his sponsor this just adds to the story. My only issue with the story and this is just mine, is that Nick needed to come out and just tell people a few times that he does not drink and the issue would have been dropped, but I understand for the story it needed to be played out a certain way. My friends know I don’t drink now for over 30 years and we still get together where ever and even back then they supported me. The ending of this book is great at least for me and also the way he worked out the issue with his mother, parts of steps 8 and 9 are forgiving yourself as well. Both Nick and Eve are working on their pasts in order to have a future. You also get a look at both AA and Al-Anon, and both families are dealing with the effects of alcohol. Eve’s obsession with office supplies adds humor to the story as well as some other fine moments. Overall a very good book and a quick read. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars.
