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.

I found this to be a very entertaining read! It's very well written but could use a little closer editing, although it's nothing that takes away from the overall story. Greg is home from Afghanistan filled with guilt and trying to drown those memories with bourbon. Allie has been in love with Gre... ...more

I was given this book for my honest review
“You’re going to have to get your social butterfly personality back and dust it off,” she told him. “We’re going on a road trip.” “Ah hell,” he said, finally sitting down
Justin-cute, hot and broken and war hero
Allie-pretty, sweet, and driven
I love Netgalley. They provide you books in exchange for an honest review. And while there are a few authors on there who kill a few of my brain cells, you often find a new author who truly takes you on a journey.
This was my experience with Teri Anne Stanley’s Drunk on You.

I picked up this book because I was in a southern mood, and it's been a while since I read a story featuring the Kentucky Bourbon industry. Being a Tennessee girl with family in Kentucky, I thought I would connect with this story. And I did for the most part. This is a short steamy romance that p... ...more
Author, Teri Anne Stanley, selected the beautiful state of Kentucky as the main setting for her contemporary romance. Stories set in my home state are an addiction of mine; as a bonus this novella was written by a fellow Kentuckian.
I enjoyed reading about Allie and Greg’s adventurous road trip f... ...more
This was a quick run read between a strong quirky woman who secretly crushed on her brother's best friend most of her life. I loved how Allie wore her heart on her sleeve for Justin.

I scored an ARC of Drunk on You - and I'm glad I did. The best friend's (forbidden) little sister is a familiar trope but the family distillery added a twist (do you drink bourdon with a twist?) to keep the story fresh. Good characters and a plot that moved made this a great beach read. ...more
I'm such a huge sucker for "friends that become lovers" type of books, so I really loved this one. ...more
A sexy and fun contemporary romance. Got happy tears at the end. Awwwww! :) ...more
