Goodreads:  She doesn’t believe in fairy tales. He is married to his job. Maybe whiskey is the secret ingredient that will bring them together–and give true love a shot.

Wedding photographer Charlotte Linley loves her work –even though she hates weddings. Sure, she still holds a grudge after being left at the altar by her high-school sweetheart. But today Charlotte is just happy to have complete control over her career, which is flourishing. Especially since she joined forces with one of the three gorgeous owners of The Stag, a boutique distillery that has become Kansas City’s hottest wedding venue.

Dean Troyer, bitter after the end of his own marriage, knows that Charlotte is the real deal–beautiful, talented, and successful. He may flirt with her every time she comes to The Stag, but Dean is determined to keep his professional distance…particularly now that she’s helping him with his own sister’s wedding. The only problem? The more time Dean spends with Charlotte, the deeper their connection grows. Is this a rom-com cliche’ or could it be that these two jaded souls in the wedding business have finally found their real-life happily ever after?

Kritters Thoughts:  The first in a series that takes place in a distillery and involves the wedding industry and from the start I was hooked!  Charlotte Linley is a wedding photographer and her favorite venue is a distillery that is still fairly new in town and owned by three hunky men!  Charlotte has been photographing for them since the beginning and one of the owners she has had an eye on for a while!  

As with any romance book the reader knows how it will more than likely end from the beginning.  You know the two main characters and you know where the end will be, but the journey and the story are usually completely worth the ride!  And so is the case in this book.  I loved Charlotte Linley she was sweet and nice, but not too perfect - she had some flaws and Dean Troyer, one of the owners, was definitely hunky, but not perfection.  I loved how their story unfolded and this was a hard one to put down.

I say all of these glowing things, but with most romance books I like to talk about the sexy times.  I may be more of a prude when it comes to the amount of sexy times I like in books and this one was definitely blush worthy.  There were a few moments where I would have preferred they shut the door and the imagination take over.  So if you are a reader that avoids those moments in books, I would beware, but I would also say there is enough plot in this book that was oh so good and worth the ride.

I am reviewing the second in the series tomorrow and like a lot of romance novels, the second book focuses on other characters in this town and at the distillery.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
