Blurb: Ryder Waites will do anything to keep the tiny town of Gallows Grove, Kentucky, from vanishing off the map—even sell his family’s whiskey recipe to Bluegrass Bourbon in Lexington. Hopeful that the larger company can provide necessary improvements to the distillery, Ryder’s ultimate goal is to get Gallows Grove on the Bourbon Trail… and bring in much-needed tourism revenue. But to keep producing Hanged Man Bourbon in Gallows Grove, he’ll have to convince company liaison, unbearably stuffy and seriously hot Adam Keller, that he’s worth the investment.
Adam comes from an old-money family, but he’s determined to make his own way in the world. When he’s sent to Gallows Grove, he questions the life choices that led him to a rented room in a funeral home, in a town full of macabre-themed businesses. And he doesn’t know what to make of Ryder, the descendant of bootleggers who’s on a mission to save his strange town from extinction. When Adam and Ryder put aside their initial mistrust, the results are as smooth as good whiskey. But after Adam’s assignment ends, he’ll have to decide if small-town life and a future with Ryder is to his tastes.
Review: I haven’t really had a chance to read that many stories from this author so it feels like I am reading a new author for me. Now as many know I am not really a fan of reading stories by authors that I am not familiar with, however this author is one that will have you laughing throughout most of the story.
Now I was not a fan of the title and it almost put me off the book to say the least. Which would have been a major disappointment if I had left it at the title. But then again I am not a drinker and have never really been a fan of drinking. Now these two guys, well lets just say they are hot to say just a bit.
Ryder doesn’t want to sell his amazing recipe for Hanged Man Bourbon, must be one hell of a strong drink. The problem is, well he has no choice. The town needs money and he wants to be on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, which I don’t really get. However that is me once more. He just didn’t care for the man sent to spy on him. Although another part of his anatomy is turned the hell on with Adam. Now Adam comes off more stiff upper lip, but deep down inside he is lonely as hell. He is definitely falling for our Ryder. Now if you want to know just a bit more, well read the book.
Now over all the story was a blast, but I do wish that it had been a bit longer in length, it was nothing but a tease and a taste of these two sexy men. It is a fun, romantic, very hot story that will have you wanting a taste of what these two men have going on. The dolls were a bit quirky too. I had a lot of fun reading this and look forward to another story by this author.
