On the Rocks by Kandi Steiner
Noah Becker is nothing but trouble.
That’s what Mama told me when I was a kid, kicking his pew in church and giggling at the games we’d play. It’s what the town said when his father died and the Becker brothers went wild.
And it’s on repeat in my mind the day I walk into the whiskey distillery where he works to buy a wedding gift for my fiancé.
Dirty, sweaty, rude trouble.
No matter how many times I repeat it, I can’t escape Noah in our small Tennessee town. And the more I run into him, the more he infuriates me. Because he sees what no one else does.
He sees me—the real me.
The me I’m not sure I’m allowed to be.
I’m Ruby Grace Barnett, the mayor’s daughter. Soon to be a politician’s wife, just like Mama and Daddy always wanted. Soon to fulfill my family’s legacy, just like I always knew I would.
Until the boy everyone warned me about makes me question everything, like whether the wedding I’m planning is one I even want.
Everyone says Noah Becker is nothing but trouble.
If only I had listened.
Steiner just nailed everything about the genre that I love. Undeniable chemistry, fantastic banter, a lovable girl next door and a swoony, sexy hero that makes my heart beat a little faster. I am absolutely obsessed with these two.
Let’s start with Ruby Grace. I loved her kind heart and sweet nature. She had fire and sass and needed someone to support her and tell her that her dreams and goals mattered. Noah is what book boyfriend dreams are made of. He saw exactly what RG needed, and he reminded her that what she wanted was important. The friendship that was developed during the story was so organic and natural, i was smitten from the first page. It was so easy to loose myself in this story.
This is the kind of book that grabs a hold of your heart and doesn’t let go. I can’t stop smiling while writing this because I loved it that much. This is a 2019 favorite for sure.
