Barreled Over is the beginning of the new series. I was immediately drawn into the world of Bourbon and Music. ~ Paige, Guilty Pleasures
Ready for another round?
Ava Grace Landy’s music career is humming along until a shakeup at her label jeopardizes her recording contract and curses her with the world’s worst boss. Determined to satisfy him, she partners with Trinity Distillery to access a larger male audience. To her surprise, she’s the one who’s satisfied—by none other than Jonah Beck, the gorgeous, yet gruff man behind the bourbon.
No doubt about it, bourbon runs in Beck’s blood. But it’s audacious Ava Grace who makes it run hot. When she signs on as the spokesperson for his craft distillery, he doesn’t plan on hoisting her onto an oak barrel and rocking the rickhouse. Though he’s convinced their lives don’t mix—like a terrible cocktail—he can’t keep his hands off the alluring country star.
Ava Grace and Beck try to keep their intoxicating relationship private, but the glare of her fame is too bright, revealing secrets they both want to remain hidden. With a spotlight shining on his tumultuous past, their future is at risk. Now they must decide if being together is worth sacrificing the career she loves and the company he’s poured his heart and soul into.
I couldn’t wait to read this new series.
I loved the premise of the book – Two up and coming stars in their chosen career, decide to throw caution and take a chance at each other.
We’re reintroduced to characters from Jenna Sutton’s Riley O’Brien & co series as well as new characters.
Ava Grace is a breakout music sensation on her way up and nothing can stop her. She’s smart sexy and has a big heart especially for her family. Her friends are loyal and always looking out for her. I loved that we were reacquainted with Ameila and Quinn. She’s dealing with a lot in her personal life but that doesn’t stop her from her lending her talents to Trinity Distillery.
Beck had a charmed life until his family and his name were tainted. Years later he has a solid core of friends whom he can trust. He’s build up a tiny empire with his friends but looking for the next level of success.
When Beck and Ava Grace meet for their new venture sparks and heat fly. I loved that they were so hot for each other that they couldn’t wait and gave into their wants and needs.
They didn’t have an easy path and we were put on a rollercoaster of emotions. These two went back and forth with the feelings and while I didn’t agree with their decisions at times I understood them.
Since this is the first in a series, we have some exciting leads on the other books in the series that I can’t wait to read their story.
