Running into your one-night stand is a special kind of awkward. Competing against him in a wine tasting contest is delicious torment…
On Rachel’s twenty-seventh birthday, she wishes to finally find a rewarding job. What she doesn’t wish is to drink a boatload of wine, sleep with a tattooed bad boy, and drunk email her boss in one glorious, career-ending move. But the fiasco pushes her to pursue a career inspired by her late father’s love of wine: sommelier.
Unfortunately, she’s competing against her infuriating one-night stand, a man as intoxicating as a Pinot Noir.
Two years ago, Jimmy was set to inherit his family winery. Then it got ripped from his grasp. To close that dark chapter of his life, he plans to win a local sommelier contest and use the press to expose his family’s tainted wines.
Jimmy loves studying the streaks of alcohol that cling to a wineglass, known as the wine’s “legs,” but other shapely legs are stealing his focus. Tantalizing legs. Legs that had wrapped around his waist for one wild night. Jimmy, sadly, has a weakness for legs.
He also hates to lose.

Review: Warmth, Compelling Flavors, And Wonderful Aftertaste
One too many glasses of wine has Rachel screaming obscenities in a bar and drawing the attention of bad boy Jimmy. Her birthday resolution: find a rewarding career. Her friend’s dare: sleep with the sexy bad boy and live a little. Fate steps in and fulfills both items.
Rachel is living in limbo. She has a job she hates, no idea of her future, and has been in a sexual drought for months. She needs a career she loves and a man she adores, but her last interaction with her father before he died was a fight over her lack of direction and unacceptable boyfriend. This has made her afraid of rocking the family boat and losing her mother.
Jimmy is still reeling from his family’s betrayal and not looking for a relationship. He was kicked out of the family winery for dating the wrong woman, who promptly ditched him when she finds out he lost everything. He hatches a plan to get back at his family for part of the wrong done to him, but gets blindsided by the dirty-talking drunk at the bar.
I really enjoyed this story. These two broken people open their hearts slowly and help each other to heal the wounds left by misunderstanding and loss. The sexy times were amazing, too, not overly raunchy and just sweet enough to have me going back for another taste. The follow on, “Stud”, is due out on January 2018.
