Synopsis: My 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.
Review: I really enjoyed a novel by the author and I was looking forward to immersing myself in something else. When I saw this novel, it wasn’t noted on goodreads that it was a Volume 2, and I was surprised to feel it well when I did read the story. Because if you follow another brother, there are still a few mentions that make you realize you’ve missed a few things.
Beckers and Scooters hate each other for a while and we understand why. No one would believe when they saw them that their grandparents were very good friends. However, Logan Beckers has always had a soft spot for Mallory Scooter, knowing that nothing will ever be possible. When the young woman joins her father’s company and Logan has to train her, things that were once impossible may well change. But it will not be easy!
It was a very nice story, even if I admit that I would have preferred to have read the first volume before. Mallory is a free young woman and I really liked seeing that she preferred to act as she wanted instead of completely conforming to her father wishes… And yet there is always her father who could steal her dream at any time. And then there is also the life of the Beckers, which is not really easy and we understand perfectly that they want more than anything to keep their heritage.
A very nice novel and I will read the first volume or the following one with pleasure!
