She’s beautiful, competent…and wreaking havoc on his self-control!

Brains and beauty? Scientist Delaney Carlisle challenges all of CFO Nolan Valentine’s professional boundaries—and inspires a passion unlike any other. Their chemistry is as intoxicating as the wine they’re creating. But she’s an employee. She’s off-limits. Not to mention, the determined single mom is only in town for the summer to help turn Valentine Vineyards into a success. Then she’s off to a full-time job and stability. Yet when Nolan finally rebels thanks to Delaney’s irresistible charms, he’ll have to choose between listening to his head and following his heart…


Electrifying chemistry! Reese Ryan is on point with the instant connection between her latest pair in the second book in her Valentine Vineyards series. The sexual tension is on fire, and the emotional depth that each character puts into their fast paced relationship is really heartwarming. I enjoyed every minute of Laney and Nolan, I only wish we had seen a tad more of his additional siblings to give that familial connection a stronger zing. Overall a very solid read and a great stepping stone in the series.

Nolan has no intention of stumbling upon the woman of his dreams when he undertakes his new position at Valentine Vineyards, but happenstance can be a powerful thing. Watching him fall hard for Laney is exciting.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone that loves a high powered family as the background of a series as each sibling stumbles upon their happily ever after.
