As for Deliciously Smooth, I enjoyed it, as well. Yet, not as much as I thought I would after reading the prequel. I loved the idea of the brewery as a central part of the story and all of the details the authors went into. In fact, the whole story was a great premise - the back story, location, how the H/h meet, and the conflict surrounding their developing relationship. My only issue was how quickly they "fell in love." I'm a reader who wholly embraces suspending some belief when reading romance novels. I'm also not completely against insta-love scenarios, but I experienced whip-lash with the H/h's self-declarations. It's like I missed a chapter where they spent more time together and had extended conversations. Setting that aside, as the story progressed and drama ensued, I was captivated with how the past came back to haunt Josh and how he had to deal with it. I was emotionally invested with his story and the effect it had on his life. It led me to understand the swiftness to his feelings for Lake. So the book ends on a great note with Josh and Lake. Now for that finale, Let me tell ya - evil authors! :-)
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
I love Lake and Walsh. Their chemistry is sizzling and each has emotional issues that make for an interesting combination. Walsh had a horrible childhood and Lake's wasn't a cakewalk either. Their pasts have certainly informed their present and each is working with inner demons, especially Walsh. Walsh is so sexy, and a little damaged so that I just wanted to give him a big hug! Lake is feisty and independent, almost abrasive at times. She certainly was abrasive during their first meeting. But, in her defense, Walsh blindsided her with his "offer" and she had just found out that she wasn't the true owner of her brewery. Yikes!
I would have given Deliciously Smooth 5 stars if the epilogue hadn't about killed me. Seriously, what was KB Jacobs thinking?!? Talk about gutting me. Epilogues are supposed to give us a hopeful look into the couple's future, so we can see how well they're doing. They are NOT supposed to make us cry or worry!!!!
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book that I received through NetGalley.
The chemistry between Lake and Walsh was good, and the bickering and animosity between them worked well. Oftentimes, the "enemies to lovers" trope isn't delivered with quite the "enemies" vibe, but I thought this was perfectly delivered. There was some instalust and instalove here, but the last scene was cute enough that I forgive it.
Lake's history was interesting but not necessarily as deep as I would like. I wanted a little more emotion and resolution from the situation with her mom, and maybe a bit more angst. Walsh's was more detailed but I still didn't necessarily feel the weight of it. I would say that his situation, in particular, deserved more attention.
I really liked Melissa, Alex, Sawyer and Damian, and feel that they were nice supporting characters. They added some fun and I felt that the interactions between everyone to be pretty genuine.
I assume the next book intends to deal with the obvious sabotage with the competition brews and the arson, which seems interesting. I do have to say that I didn't expect a cliffhanger though, and that it kind of came out of nowhere.
Overall, I really liked this one and feel like it's a great book to get lost in.
I REALLY don't mind the eye candy, either.
*ahem* Right. Let's get to the nitty gritty and see what else is to enjoy about this book. You know, besides brews and slightly duplicitous, but very pretty men and girl power. Lake and Walsh. Lake. And Walsh. She's trying to find her footing after taking over the brewery after her father's death. He's hiding a kinda big secret. Might I just say, Lake REALLY doesn't want to let go of brewery. She might have made a few mistakes, but she's determined to keep the brewery running because it's in her blood.
It takes a while for Walsh to see that. He's so focused on honoring his fallen comrade that he's only looking at the bottom line. With the way Lake's running the company so close to the bone, he thinks he's doing the right thing by stepping in. Then he gets to know her and things progress from there.
Did I mention that thing about the kinda big secret? Because, yeah. That.
A smokin' romance with likable characters. The next book can't come soon enough because OMG! SAY WHAT THERE?!?! So, you know, bring it on.
