The only thing headier than wine is lust.

Ryan Royer thought his business trip to California’s Napa Valley would be easy. Land a new client. Taste wine. But when the client is a free-spirited bombshell who presses all of his buttons, Ryan’s world goes sideways.

Kenzie Balfour is entirely irresistible. She’s the fourth generation to run The Von Eck Estate Winery and she’s more intoxicating than any award-winning cabernet.

Ryan has been working hard for a promotion at one of the world’s top investment banks. If he can close this deal for her legendary winery, he gets the job. He can’t let a gorgeous woman with a great laugh get in the way of his goals. Even if she leaves him love drunk.

From a trouser-tightening almost-kiss at a restaurant to a seductive walk through a vineyard at sunset, can Ryan keep his crush on his client under control or will a taste of Kenzie be his downfall?

Escape to California’s wine country in Crush.



Do you remember someone you had a crush on?  Someone you just couldn’t stop thinking about?  This book will bring back all those feelings and so much more.  This author has a way of immersing you in every part of the story, from the characters, to the landscape, to wanting to drink the wine.  You just feel when reading this book and any book by this author.  To me those are the best books.  With this book and with all of hers, you don’t get the same story line that you’ve read a hundred times.  It’s so refreshing to read something different, something more realistic.  I’ve read every book by this author and with each book, I just love her more and more.  I cannot recommend this book enough.  My advice, get a glass of wine, sit back, and enjoy being transported to Napa Valley in this delightful, smart, amazing story.
