Liza's Review:

Roxanne St. Claire has totally made me fall in love with her latest hero in book 5 of the 7 Brides for 7 Blackthornes series. Brock David Blackthorne had me falling for him pretty much from the first page of this story...and I wasn't alone based upon the chemistry between Brock and Jenna Gillespie.

Brock and Jenna have an interesting first meeting thanks to a crazy thunderstorm that starts when them sharing a cab and ends with them spending the night together. Brock is super protective of his family, so when he discovers Jenna wants to write a tell-all book that will delve into the family, the business, and rumors about a long ago stolen whisky recipe, he agrees to be her contact with the family. The fact that they both are insanely attracted to one another made their choice of business only working relationship so fun; especially as their chemistry only grew stronger the more time they spent together.

The mystery of the possible stolen whisky recipe kept me on the edge of my seat through much of the book. I love how well Jenna and Brock worked together and I especially loved how sweet Brock's grandmother was with Jenna. I loved these two characters so much and really felt like they were perfect for one another. They each had a childhood trauma and it seemed just talking with one another helped them each find a way to healing said trauma. 

I've jumped around in my reading of the books in this series so far, so I can attest that each of the stories can be read as a stand-alone story. However, I also have already pre-ordered or purchased any of the books currently out as I want to know everything about this family.  Roxanne St. Claire has written a beautiful story centering on family, love, laughter, and mystery that had so much heart I didn't want it to end.

Rating: 5 stars (B+)
