Undiluted desire, served straight up.
Justin Morgan would happily drown the pain of his injured leg—and the guilt he brought back from Afghanistan—in bourbon. Except, there won’t be any booze if he doesn’t rescue his family’s century-old distillery from financial ruin. The problem? Allie McGrath—youngest daughter of the distillery’s co-owners, and the one woman he can’t have.
Allie has been in love with Justin since…well, she's always been in love with him. Now he's home, broken up over the death of her brother, and he needs help. She can fix the distillery—she’s sure of it—but no one’s taking her or her sweet new idea seriously. Convincing Justin is her only hope.
Allie is more tempting than Justin expected, threatening a promise he swore he’d never break. If he can’t keep their attraction under control, there’s a solid chance they’ll send the whole enterprise crumbling to the ground…if he doesn’t crash and burn first.
Allie has always been the girl Greg* couldn't have because she's his best friend David's sister. After he goes with David to be in the Marines and comes back alone, it's his responsibility to take care of Allie. This turns out to be more difficult than imagined since there's a clear desire on both sides. They end up going on a little road trip together to help promote Allie's shiny new idea for the distillery. She's afraid of how everyone will respond to this idea, but she's determined to make something of it. The desire between the two of them gets sparked and neither of them can contain themselves any longer. Will the desire turn into more?
Drunk on You is entertaining and touches the heart at the same time. I will admit that I had trouble with the story at the start, but once I reached the end, the feels got to me when Greg is talking about David. It's one of those clutch your heart kind of moments. The romance between Greg and Allie is built piece by piece. Very nice story from Teri Anne Stanley.
* Not sure if the name gets changed from what it was in the ARC I downloaded, but the name of the love interest is Greg in my copy and not Justin, just FYI. Guess we'll find out when it gets published, right?
