Goodreads:  She’s never had a no-strings fling. He’s never had anything else. But maybe this time will be an exception?

After a year of mourning her fiancé, Alexis Parker has worked hard to rediscover what she wants out of life. Fresh out of the military and back stateside, her brother offers her a marketing job at the Stag Distillery. Ready for a new challenge, Alexis agrees to accompany her new co-worker Jake Cooper on a Stag cross-country promotional tour. He may have an infamous playboy reputation, but Alexis is surprised to find out that there is more to him than meets the eye. And she likes what she sees. . .

Jake promised Alexis’s brother that he’d be an absolute gentleman. Of course, that was before he and Alexis hit the road, and they both agree that what Alexis’s big brother doesn’t know won’t hurt him. The plan: to keep their fling confined to the RV, and everything will go back to normal once they head home. Things progress in ways neither of them could have imagined, and Jake realizes that he and Alexis make a perfect mix. Can he convince her that he’s ready to shake things up and give true love a shot?

Kritters Thoughts:  The third in a romance series and if you are new to the romance world, most books in a series are mostly self contained and each book focuses on different characters in the same town or setting.  This series has focused on a distillery and the men that work there and the women that come into their lives.  As I say in most reviews of romance books, it is obvious the ending of most romance books but the joy is in the journey!

This story centers on Jake Cooper who is the last bachelor to work for Stag Distillery and Alexis who is the little sister of one of the other owners of the distillery.  Alexis has made a few appearances in the previous books, but this book takes a deep dive into her life and what has happened.  

I loved these two.  Their story wasn't all sunshine and rainbows and it had distinct ups and downs.  I like it when the path to romance in a book isn't super easy.  This may have been my favorite so far for this series.  

I hope this author has more from this distillery, I like the town and the venue.  I could imagine myself hanging out there and being friends with the characters - I love when a book makes me feel that way.  

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