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.


My Review

I was so excited when I met Mae in Philly and she told me about this book. It was so good! I’ve been in a bit of a mood and this book helped me immensely!

When we are introduced to Ryan I was really curious as to who McKenzie would be. She was EVERYTHING I was hoping for from that blurb!!! I loved that there was an age gap and that this relationship between them was pretty taboo, BUT they were so perfect!!! The amount of chemistry between these two was off the charts. The little moments and the complete devotion to each other was so adorable. But, at the same time they both really lost site of their end goal because of it.

Mae did an amazing job with this story. The characters are so perfectly developed, include the secondary characters (my fav was couch Greg). From the addition of the hockey team, the roommates and the people they all work with the characters were phenomenal. And then of course we have the scenery. I felt like I was right there with them walking through the grape trees in Napa Valley when Kenzie first takes Ryan for his tour.

I’m not putting into words well enough what a good book this was. Just take my word for it and go read now!!
