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.
4 out of 5 stars
Noah and Ruby Grace’s story gave me all of the feels. There was humor, lovable characters, angst, and sweet moments. Noah was pretty much the perfect man and I swooned over him several times throughout the book.
I liked that this book is set in a town that is built around a whiskey distillery. That brought a unique element to the story and was really interesting to read about. I also enjoyed that, though this is a romance book, there is an underlying mystery about what happened to Noah’s dad that I’m pretty sure is going to run throughout the series. I’m looking forward to seeing what is (maybe) uncovered about that in the next book.
I enjoyed getting to know the Becker brothers as well. Noah is part of an amazing and loving family. I grew to love all of them throughout this book. I’m looking forward to reading Logan’s story next!
