Hey lovely readers!
Here’s a book review for you! I voluntarily reviewed an ARC copy of this book.
“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.”
Alright so first things first. The Becker boys are absolutely wonderful! This is book #2 of the Becker boys series and I seriously loved it. The books center around a town whiskey distillery in a small town in Tennessee. Having family from Texas and spending so much time down south it just made me so happy to read about southern life. It felt like coming home in a way and brought back some really great memories. Books like that, the ones that carry you away on their pages, are some of the best books out there.
This book centers around Logan and Mallory who are supposed to be enemies given their family histories. And yet you find these two have always felt a connection. I really loved the whole opposites attract vibe in this book. It reminds you that love, real love is unpredictable. You just can’t be sure how it’s going to turn out.
And then there’s the whole mystery aspect that is present in this series. The Becker boys lost their father almost a decade ago and they have always believed his death was no accident. And Mallory’s family is responsible. I like that with the romance there is an element of mystery mixed in and I really hope that in the end the truth comes out.
I seriously loved this book. Logan is totally me. Neat freak, book worm, and history buff. It was so much fun to read about him. Mallory is more the messy, artsy type. And though I couldn’t quite relate, but she is a really dynamic and layered character. If you like southern boys, strong girls, and good whiskey this book and its predecessor On the Rocks are absolutely for you!
Thanks for reading guys! Talk to you soon! ❤ Adrianna
