An intoxicating and sparkling new romance by New York Times bestselling author Jasmine Guillory.
Margot Noble needs some relief from the stress of running the family winery with her brother. Enter Luke: sexy, charming, and best of all in the too-small world of Napa, a stranger. The chemistry between them is undeniable, and Margot is delighted that she lucked into the perfect one-night stand she’ll never have to see again. That is, until the winery’s newest hire, Luke, walks in the next morning. Margot is determined to keep things purely professional, but when their every interaction reminds her of the attraction still bubbling between them, it proves to be much more challenging than she expects.
Luke Williams had it all, but when he quits his high-salary tech job in Silicon Valley in a blaze of burnout and moves back to Napa to help a friend, he realizes he doesn’t want to tell the world–or his mom–why he’s now working at a winery. His mom loves bragging about her successful son–how can he admit that the job she’s so proud of broke him? Luke has no idea what is next for him, but one thing is certain: he wants more from the incredibly smart and sexy woman he hooked up with–even after he learns she’s his new boss. But even if they can find a way to be together that wouldn’t be an ethical nightmare, would such a successful woman really want a tech-world dropout?
Set against a lush backdrop of Napa Valley wine country, nothing goes to your head as fast as a taste of love–even if it means changing all your plans.
Drunk on Love is a light, feel-good, workplace romance from author Jasmine Guillory and follows the story of Margot and Luke. Margot works hard and her family winery and while she loves what she does, she’s in desperate need of a break. And when Luke Williams enters the picture, he might just be the distraction she was hoping for…
Drunk on Love is set in the lush Napa Valley wine country. It’s easy to visualize and get a feel for. I adored both Luke and Margot and found them to be very genuine, real characters. I loved their chemistry and how well they hit it off when they first met. Yes, they were only supposed to be a one-night stand, but you could tell that these two were destined to be more; especially when fate intervened and Margot discovers that Luke is the newest employee her brother hired. Despite the attraction Margot feels towards Luke, she tells him that what happened between them can’t happen again. But, when you have chemistry like these two, you know it’s only a matter of time before they give in to what is burning between them.
Overall, I found this to be a really enjoyable read. I was pulled into the story instantly. I loved the flow of the writing and the likability of the characters. Margot and Luke’s story felt real and genuine. And in the end, Drunk on Love is a sweet romance that will sweep you off of your feet and leave you with a smile on your face.
