Library Journal Review
Two years after returning home to Napa, CA, Margot Noble still feels a strong need to prove her worth as co-owner of her family's winery. Margot's hard work has left little time for pleasure, but her best friend convinces her to explore the instant connection she feels with Luke Williams. At a crossroads in his tech career, Luke views the job he spontaneously took at Noble Family Vineyards as something interesting to do while pondering his future. Neither knows who the other is when they hook up. Although Luke wants more than one night, Margot is torn, but their working relationship gives them the chance to get to know each other. Their professional scenes crackle with sexual tension and, once they are free to be together, it's a pleasure to witness them be each other's refuge. Still, the clandestine nature of their relationship's beginning colors how they interact and leads to some momentous revelations about themselves and their families. VERDICT Guillory's (By the Book) latest, imbued with her signature heat, wit, and scene-stealing secondary characters, is sure to be popular.--Nicole Williams
Publishers Weekly Review
Bestseller Guillory (The Wedding Party) sets this scintillating workplace romance at a Napa Valley vineyard. Its co-owner, Margot Noble, faces a crisis of conscience when she realizes that her recent steamy one-night stand is also her new employee, Luke Williams, hired by her brother in her absence. Though their intense attraction lingers, Margot's determined not to sleep with her employee (again). Her brother, the vineyard's other owner, doesn't believe she deserves to have inherited her half of the business from their uncle, and she doesn't want to give him any more ammunition to use against her. The situation is just as fraught for Luke, who recently quit a high-paying tech job with a discriminatory boss--a fact he hasn't yet told his mother, who also mistakenly believes he's dating his best friend. A relationship with Margot would only complicate things further--but knowing that does nothing to curtail his desire. When his mother has an accident, Luke quits the vineyard to fill in at her inn, giving Luke and Margot the opportunity to explore their chemistry at last. His shyness and her strength are an orgasmic combination, but Margot's fear of being judged and Luke's need to prove himself worthy threaten their happiness. The lush background and Guillory's signature blend of sexy, sweet, and funny keep the pages flying. This is a gem. Agent: Holly Root, Root Literary. (Sept.)
