An Ali Release Day Review: Whiskey Business (States of Love) by Avon Gale

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
whiskey-businessRyder Waites will do anything to keep the tiny town of Gallows Grove, Kentucky, from vanishing off the map—even sell his family’s whiskey recipe to Bluegrass Bourbon in Lexington. Hopeful that the larger company can provide necessary improvements to the distillery, Ryder’s ultimate goal is to get Gallows Grove on the Bourbon Trail… and bring in much-needed tourism revenue. But to keep producing Hanged Man Bourbon in Gallows Grove, he’ll have to convince company liaison, unbearably stuffy and seriously hot Adam Keller, that he’s worth the investment.

Adam comes from an old-money family, but he’s determined to make his own way in the world. When he’s sent to Gallows Grove, he questions the life choices that led him to a rented room in a funeral home, in a town full of macabre-themed businesses. And he doesn’t know what to make of Ryder, the descendant of bootleggers who’s on a mission to save his strange town from extinction. When Adam and Ryder put aside their initial mistrust, the results are as smooth as good whiskey. But after Adam’s assignment ends, he’ll have to decide if small-town life and a future with Ryder is to his tastes.
What a fun and entertaining story this was.  I was hooked from the moment these two met.  They immediately dislike each other but are immediately physically attracted to each other and that’s a plotline that I love.  They go back and forth making each other crazy.  One minute they can’t stand each other and are bickering non-stop and then the next they’re struggling to keep from acting on their fantasies.  The sexual tension and chemistry between the two jumps off of the pages. Once they give in to each other, it alternates between sweet scenes of them falling for each other, with steamy scenes that burn up the pages.
As a back drop there is this very quirky town and it’s very quirky inhabitants.  It is so well done I could picture it all in mind.  Complete with pun filled store names.  I could also picture the creepy doll filled room and while I hate dolls, it did lead to some very entertaining scenes.
I really enjoyed this and don’t have any complaints about this book.  I thought it was really well done and a fun, low angst read.  Something I would definitely recommend.
Cover by Aaron Anderson:  I like the cover a lot.  It’s unique and it fits the plot perfectly.
