An intoxicating and sparkling new romance by New York Times bestselling author Jasmine Guillory.
Margot Noble needs some relief from the stress of running the family winery with her brother. Enter Luke: sexy, charming, and best of all in the too-small world of Napa, a stranger. The chemistry between them is undeniable, and Margot is delighted that she lucked into the perfect one-night stand she’ll never have to see again. That is, until the winery’s newest hire, Luke, walks in the next morning. Margot is determined to keep things purely professional, but when their every interaction reminds her of the attraction still bubbling between them, it proves to be much more challenging than she expects.
Luke Williams had it all, but when he quits his high-salary tech job in Silicon Valley in a blaze of burnout and moves back to Napa to help a friend, he realizes he doesn’t want to tell the world–or his mom–why he’s now working at a winery. His mom loves bragging about her successful son–how can he admit that the job she’s so proud of broke him? Luke has no idea what is next for him, but one thing is certain: he wants more from the incredibly smart and sexy woman he hooked up with–even after he learns she’s his new boss. But even if they can find a way to be together that wouldn’t be an ethical nightmare, would such a successful woman really want a tech-world dropout?
Set against a lush backdrop of Napa Valley wine country, nothing goes to your head as fast as a taste of love–even if it means changing all your plans.
I was so excited to hear this author had a new series starting, I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve read by them. I enjoyed that it took place at a winery, since I haven’t read any surrounding one. The descriptive writing made me feel like I was there.
Margot was such a professional business woman when it comes to the family winery. The fact that she lets loose once and it becomes this big issue for her made me genuinely feel for her. Luke was one of my favorite love interests I have ever read. He was so humble and sweet, I was rooting for him the whole time.
Jasmine has a way of writing the most wonderful spicy scenes. Her writing style in general is amazing, descriptive, without boring me. I also really enjoyed seeing the family dynamics of Margot and Elliot throughout the book.
