ARC Review--> Drunk on You by Teri Anne Stanley

Title: Drunk on You
Series: Not sure…
Author: Teri Anne Stanley
Release Date: Available Now
Publisher: Entangled LS

Undiluted desire, served straight up.

Justin Morgan would happily drown the pain of his injured leg—and the guilt he brought back from Afghanistan—in bourbon. Except, there won’t be any booze if he doesn’t rescue his family’s century-old distillery from financial ruin. The problem? Allie McGrath—youngest daughter of the distillery’s co-owners, and the one woman he can’t have.

Allie has been in love with Justin since…well, she's always been in love with him. Now he's home, broken up over the death of her brother, and he needs help. She can fix the distillery—she’s sure of it—but no one’s taking her or her sweet new idea seriously. Convincing Justin is her only hope.

Allie is more tempting than Justin expected, threatening a promise he swore he’d never break. If he can’t keep their attraction under control, there’s a solid chance they’ll send the whole enterprise crumbling to the ground…if he doesn’t crash and burn first.

I did like this book, but I didn’t love it.
 I love books where the guy falls for his best friends little sister. And that is the case for this book. And add that he’s an ex-military guy and lives in my home state-Kentucky, how could I not give this a try?
The book started out good. It was pretty interesting at first, but as it went on, some of the things Greg says/ does really annoyed me. For example, his excuse about anything that has to do with Allie is that she is his best friends little sister. I mean I got it after the first 500 times.
However, there was somethings that did like. I really liked how we get to see Greg and Allie’s relationship grow into what they have now. They didn’t rush, it just gradually happened. I also liked the characters they got to meet on their road trip where their trying to find an investor and promoting for Allie’s new product- Rainbow Dog. Which I can say I’m not a fan of the name. She could have picked something different. And I think the biggest problem I had with this book is where he call his ex-girlfriend pet names too. EX: My girl or something to that affect. No, he should not be calling her anything but her name. I don’t think he done it intently but I still don’t like it. And I think you can tell that I don’t like her. And she does play another part in the book but I’m not saying what.
Somethings where predicable about their relationship, but usually when I read books anymore that’s usually the case at some point in a book.
The author did leave me wanting to know what’s going on with Greg’s older brother…
The characters worked well together, but there was just something missing for me. Something was lacking for me really love this book. It just didn’t
I will give the author another shot. The book wasn’t terrible but I also didn’t love it.
3/5 stars
