Source: AuthorMy life is over.
I swore I would never work at the whiskey distillery with my last name on it, that I would never be a part of my father’s legacy. But when I graduated with my art degree and realized there were no jobs, the devil appeared, and I sold my soul, agreeing to work in the family business if he’d give me the art studio I’d always dreamed of.
It can’t be that bad, I thought.
Until I realized my new boss was Logan Becker.
The Becker brothers have a reputation for being trouble, and since I love trouble, it’s no surprise to me that I’m infatuated by that forbidden fruit the first day I walk into the distillery. That lean, whiskey-eyed, too-hot-for-his-own-good man hates me — and I can’t blame him. His family has been at war with mine for decades, and for good reason.
The Beckers and the Scooters are the Montagues and Capulets of Stratford, Tennessee.
But if he’s Romeo, and I’m Juliet? Well… we all know how that story ends — and for that reason, I tell myself to steer clear.
Because if my father finds out I’m falling for Logan Becker, my life actually will be over.
And Logan’s will be, too.
I love love love Kandi Steiner's books and the romances she creates. I was such a huge fan of On the Rocks and couldn't wait to watch another Becker brother fall in love!
Logan Becker's job and family are his life. He's dedicated all of his time to his job as tour guide at distillery and will do anything and everything for his mom and brothers. So when Mallory Scooter shows up as the newest tour guide with a sour attitude, Logan tries his best to hate his family's rival. But he's always been intrigued with Mallory ever since high school, and he isn't so sure their hate for one another could override his attraction for her.
When this started, I was immediately smitten with Logan. He is such a nice guy and he is so adorably nerdy and I couldn't get enough of him. Not only does Logan read, but he is also super organized and so dedicated to his job. SWOON. When Mallory started, I honestly was not a fan of her and got so frustrated with her, just like Logan did. But, as they got to know each other, it was so cute when they stopped hating each other. Their conversations were so realistic and relatable when it comes to the beginning of a relationship and I loved how they grew closer.
While I loved the beginning of this book and was so in love with Logan, I was a little annoyed with the culminating conflict between Logan and Mallory. I felt like it was obvious that conflict was going to happen and should have been obvious for the characters, but they both got mad anyways and it caused a rift between them. I just wanted something much more trying for the characters than what we already knew was going to happen.
If I didn't love the Becker family before, I am head over heels for them now. I may have just finished this book, but I am already dying for more of the Becker boys and can't wait for book three! Neat delivers a romance you know shouldn't work but you root for anyways. I definitely recommend picking it up!
