A steamy friends-to-lovers standalone romance from Scarlett Cole.
Master distiller, Jake Dyer, is doing everything he can to keep his family-run gin distillery in business. Working seven days a week to maintain production volumes while overseeing a complex renovation of the distillery keeps him busy. There is no room for anything else in his life, especially not Cassie Cunnigham, his childhood friend, and daughter of the owner of the construction company completing the renovation.
Cassie Cunnigham hates leaving her project management job with a New York construction firm to return to Denver after a decade away. But when Jake Dyer calls to tell her about her father’s accident, she has no choice but to go home for six weeks to run his small construction firm in his absence. With her New York boss threatening to fire her if she doesn’t return, and her father pleading with her to stay, Cassie feels as though the men in her life are taking decisions out of her hands.
All except Jake, who is no longer the gangly-teen she left behind. And it doesn’t help that Jake can’t keep his eyes, or hands, off her, either. When friendly reunions turn heated in secret, Jake and Cassie convince themselves that friends-with-benefits sounds like a whole lot of fun.
But as walls go up in the distillery and refuse to come down from around Cassie’s heart, Jake wonders if he and the woman he’s falling in love with will ever add up to anything more.
| There is no better way to end a triology like this. WOW! I started the book the minute it laded on my kindle and I read it in one night. I couldn’t put it down. Love In Secrets (Love Distilled, #3) by Scarlett Cole reminded me why I fell in love with her style. It is full of emotions and her writing style is on point. I had to sit down a minute, just to remind me where I am….. Because you get the feeling of living in the story. You just have to feel everything the characters feel. With a story from Scarlett Cole, you never get disappointed.
I knew right from the beginning, that Scarlett Cole had something in mind, while she wrote Jake as a side character. After all… he too deserves hapiness and love in his life, like his sisters. So I was really excited for his story. Then there is Cassie. What a strong woman, who knows what she wants….. Does she?! Well, as a feminist I really loved it how she worked all the mans in her life to make her dream come true. She is so clever and she burns for her job… but she also burns for Jake.
What else is there to say, except that I cried…. again….. Well, crying is guaranteed, when you read storys from Scarlett Cole. There are just perfect in every way. I’m so excited for her new hot steamy rock star series.
Thank You Scarlett Cole for all your amazing storys that you share with us!
