Her bourbon-flavored kisses
threaten his carefully constructed boundaries. 

Bourbon Brothers #3
Teri Anne Stanley
Releasing July 3, 2017
Entangled Lovestruck

In A Taste of You (Bourbon Brothers #3) by Teri Anne Stanley, Eve McGrath needs the new Tasting and Visitor centre finished at her family's distillery, so she's determined to confront the contractor she hired. However, she finds herself meeting the unreliable contractor's gorgeous son instead, and demanding he finish the job. Will Nick Baker do the right thing by accepting to take on the job Eve needs him to finish, so they can have a shot at forever after; or will he leave her high and dry and needing to find someone else to finish the job?

With every book, this series just keeps getting better and better, and Ms. Stanley delivers another wonderful and captivating read in this third story of her Bourbon Brothers series, encompassing a fast-paced storyline that is filled with plenty of dialogue, which had me smiling or laughing; and main characters that have such interesting back stories that I couldn't wait to discover more about them, especially the hero. The way this story started had me hoping the heroine would get what she wants, because she needs everything to work out, otherwise there's no telling how her mother will react. Will everything work out for the best for Eve?

As for the dialogue, it was intense and had me loving both the main characters because of their back stories and their playful banter, especially when they're conversing about relationships and the heroine's organizing skills when it comes to her office supplies. Those moments had me laughing and determined to discover how many more times they could make me laugh. Moreover, I really enjoyed the hero's back story, as he's fighting a battle he's not certain he'll win in the long run, especially since there's plenty of temptation working for Eve at Blue Mountain Distillery and the fact that his father doesn't help matters with him having the same problem the hero had but not willing to do anything about it. I also liked how close the hero is with his mother and the advice the woman gives to him about Eve because he certainly needs it.

While the heroine, her need to be meticulous and her need to learn things she barely knows anything about had me really liking Eve. I also liked how much Eve grew throughout this story and that she finally stood up for what she wanted in her life, instead of continuing to remain the puppet her mother treats her like in expecting the heroine to fall in line with the woman's plans. I also liked how accepting she was of the hero, considering she's already witnessed the effects of the addiction the hero has recovered from, but could still fall back into the habit if he's not careful.

Overall, Ms. Stanley completely captivated me with this book where the chemistry was intense and the ending had me smiling because of the heroine's courage to finally fight for what she wanted for her future. However, it was the epilogue that wrapped this story up nicely, as the heroine is finally truly happy and I liked how what was happening with Eve's sister managed to bring the family a little closer after everything that happened. I would recommend A Taste of You by Teri Anne Stanley, if you enjoy the opposites attract trope or books by authors Marissa Clarke, Boone Brux, Stefanie London or Donna Michaels.

Office supply addict Eve McGrath’s meticulously organized life is on the verge of crashing at her feet. Blue Mountain distillery’s new tasting and visitor center has to be finished pronto or her mother will lose her mind. Good thing Eve likes a challenge—which is exactly what she’ll face trying to convince the flaky contractor’s hot son to finish the job.

Nick Baker is back in Kentucky just long enough to get his wayward dad back on his feet. Then he’s gone. Unfortunately, he can’t resist helping Eve, the sexy distiller-in-distress, whose addictive, bourbon-flavored kisses threaten his carefully constructed boundaries. And if he can’t rein himself in, the uncomfortable secrets of past will nail him to the wall…



They were alone. Eve was suddenly nervous. What was the deal? She wanted to ask Nick if the incident in the truck last weekend was a one-shot deal, if he’d decided he really wasn’t that into her, or if there was going to be more, but reminded herself that she was taking things as they came.
Not stressing over the future. The bag with her planner inside banged against her hip as she led Nick down the hall to a door at the end. “Well, this is it,” she told him.
“Your mecca.”
“No. The Office Superstore out on 62 is my mecca. This is just a temple.”
“You really like office supplies, huh?”
“Oh yeah,” she told him. “Those times I get to take the company credit card and go to the office store? All that potential for organization and efficiency? It’s like Christmas and New Year’s Eve all rolled into one.”
“Copy paper.” He said it in a deep, growly voice that could have come from a 1970’s R&B singer. “Thumb tacks.” He waggled his eyebrows at her, and she giggled.
She turned away to grab the door handle, and he stepped closer, so she could feel him almost but not quite touching her from shoulder to butt. No, it wasn’t the thought of file folders that had her nipples tightening and heat pooling low in her belly. She stepped back, bumping into him as she pulled the door open, revealing her stash of office supplies.
“Paper clips.” This was more of a husky whisper. Which did actually send a shiver down her spine, but not because of the words themselves, more about the way he said it. Right into the place where her shoulder met her neck. His hands were on her hips now, and with just a tiny bit of effort, he could have her fully back against him. “Ball point pens.”
Her entire body flushed, and she took a chance asking the question, because leaving this up to fate was no longer an option. “Are you trying to seduce me with sexy language?”
“Is it working?”
“I think it is,” she told him and turned to face him.


Teri Anne Stanley has been writing since she could hold a crayon--though learning to read was a huge turning point in her growth as a writer. Teri's first stories involved her favorite Saturday morning cartoon characters, followed by her favorite teen idols. She has also authored a recipe column (The Three Ingredient Gourmet), and scientific articles (Guess which was more interesting!). Now she writes fun, sexy romance populated by strong, smart women and hunky heroes.

Teri currently supplements her writing income as a neuroscience research assistant. In her nearly non-existent spare time, she is the human half of a therapy dog team, an amateur genealogist, and a compulsive crafter (if there are directions on the internet, she can probably make it). Along with a variety of offspring and dogs, she and Mr. Stanley enjoy boating and relaxing at their weekend estate, located in the thriving metropolis of Sugartit, between Beaverlick and Rabbit Hash, Kentucky.
