Struggling winery owner Zach and clumsy intern Jeff have a steamy hookup when they first meet, only to both realize what a not-good idea that is (and thank you for touching on the problem with bosses sexing up even consenting interns). The book then skims over the next 2 months of them working together and yet avoiding each other, but it's unclear about just how they managed this.
I loved the parts of their relationship that showed up on the page, I just wanted more of it. The brief look at Jeff’s mishaps wasn’t enough, especially after that final calamity (Jeff is NOT made for the winery business, big time). As it stood, Zach just seemed to calm down way too quickly.
This is Book 2 of the Home in Hollyridge series, but Jeff’s HEA with grumpy sweetheart Zach delivers a lot of warm fuzzies as a stand-alone. However, read book 1 first if you want more insight into Jeff’s backstory; it definitely raised the satisfaction factor of Jeff and Zach’s romance for me.
Copy received for an honest review.
Zach Brown is struggling to keep his winery going and the summer intern is one more body which could have helped that happen. Losing David made it even tougher, because David had done some of the bookkeeping and now Zach would need to take the time for the hated paperwork. And they were short one worker, although David didn’t really do much in the fields, and the intern may be gone. He went to his friends’ Blue Mountain Winery tasting room and told Jaime about his awful day. And just then, Jeff and his friends Rory and Brett walked in. Jaime offered to matchmake him with Jeff, but Zach has sworn off men and realized Jeff was his “former” intern! He was embarrassed enough. But Jaime was determined and she served wine to the guys at the table and asked Jeff to come re-meet Zach and start things over. Zach was grateful that Jeff would be coming back the next morning for his tour.
Jeff doesn't know much about wine yet and even less about love, having never even kissed a guy, but maybe Jeff is just what Zach needs to save his winery and heal his wounded heart. Jeff already felt that Zach was the one he had been waiting for all his life. Zach felt very protective of Jeff. Neither of them wanted a random hookup; they both craved commitment. But neither had said anything to the other. Was this the start of something each may have been looking for? Or would Zach’s being his boss make it impossible?
I do think that the physical aspect of their relationship went too quickly, but months were given to the full story, so it was not all insta-love. The way weeks and months passed by also made the resolution of other aspects of their lives a bit more believable. More details could have been given, with periods of time not summarized in the way they're often done in short works, but it didn't feel absolutely necessary.
This was the first book I've read by Elle Keaton & I plan on reading the first of this series and hope to read more beyond that.
