In the Virginia countryside outside of Washington, DC, Addy Wentworth was on a mission to make a new life for herself. When the opportunity arose, she settled in horse and wine country.

Experiencing more than her fair share of tragedy and loss, she had plans for her future, one where failure wasn’t an option. And not just because people and cows were counting on her.

    Loved it! This was my first book by Brynne Asher and it won’t be my last. This book was exactly what I wanted and expected. Beautifully written with an interesting and engaging story and well-developed characters, Vines was a page turner and a thrilling ride from beginning to end. This is the story of Addy Wentworth and Crew Vega, two damaged individuals who carry the pain of their past like a heavy burden on their shoulders, but whose love for each other eventually sets them free. But yes, thing Loved it! This was my first book by Brynne Asher and it won’t be my last. This book was exactly what I wanted and expected. Beautifully written with an interesting and engaging story and well-developed characters, Vines was a page turner and a thrilling ride from beginning to end. This is the story of Addy Wentworth and Crew Vega, two damaged individuals who carry the pain of their past like a heavy burden on their shoulders, but whose love for each other eventually sets them free. But yes, things were complicated. This story flowed right from page one and had that ideal balance of sweet, romance and steamy with elements of suspense/mystery thrown in the mix, but somehow avoids the angsty-drama. I loved Addy’s character. Strong, funny, independent and definitely not a pushover.
 Ah… Crew… he was such a protective alpha male all wrapped up in a sexy package. I adored the vulnerability under all that strength. How he helped Addie heal from her past and how he became the hero she so desperately needed. These two perfectly complemented one another to make each other stronger. They found the right balance between them, feeling free to be their true selves with each other, with no restraint and no false pretenses, and drawing great comfort from that. Together they were also smoking hot and they had chemistry in spades! Overall, this was a truly heart-warming and satisfying read. I am a new fan of this author's work and definitely looking forward to read the next book in the Killers Series.

I buy it from the bottlo take it home, put it in my fridge and wait until Thursday night. See, now that I’m back working, Thursday night has become my Friday night. I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again…MY HUBBY IS AWESOME!! Because he works from home, he always makes sure that on Thursday’s there’s a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge (no, you can’t have him, but I MIGHT be willing to put him up for cloning if it becomes available). Anyways, wine waiting for me in my fridge on Thursday night is generally the extent of my thoughts on wine and where it comes from. Back to the story...Holy Shamoly!! I absolutely loved Vines. Addy owns a vineyard and is working her butt off to make it a success. She was visiting the area one day after a spur of the moment decision to return to where her mum grew up. Her mum had died of cancer and Addy decided that it would be nice to scatter her ashes there. While Addy was in Virginia, she came across a vineyard that was for sale. This was an opportunity that Addy couldn’t pass up. A failing business with potential, her background in hotel management and ideas on how to improve it, led her to make an offer. One humungous business loan later, Addy is in her happy place. Her happy place also happens to have a few cows that liked to be walked around the property. One day while out for her daily cow walk looking for Harry with Scarlet trailing behind (yes they’re the cows' names) Addy meet her new neighbour. Crew Vega can’t believe his new neighbour has pet cows. She’s extremely attractive, but obviously, a little cooky too. Crew has moved to Virginia to start up a new business. He has lived a life for the last ten years that has led him to have a lot of secrets. Crew can’t tell anyone what his new business is or what his previous profession was. He usually tells people that he works for the government. Through one of his contacts, he finds out that his new neighbour isn’t as she appears. It’s not long before Crew comes to realise that Addy is in danger…and he’s just the man to protect her. Vines is a love story that packs a punch. There are mystery, action and extremely sexy scenes that had me squirming. I’ve read all of Brynne Asher’s work and this is by far her HOTTEST one. Notice the capital letters, it’s because I REALLY mean it. She even steps a toe into the kinky world. Not OTT by any means, just enough to arouse curiosity and get your heart pumping. The mystery kept the story going from start to finish. The action included one heart-pumping car chase that had me irritated that Crew's fancy car got damaged. Why not a full 5 stars? To be honest, it was because Crew peeved me. He’s all...trust me, put your faith in me, I’ll be here for you…until he left. Bloody loyalty to friends. Yeah, yeah, I know he saved lives, but geez, how can I trust you again, Crew? You SAY you won’t leave but what happens the next time your knucklehead friend gets it in his head to find a bit of action? Hmmm? I guess I’ll just have to trust you, won’t I? He’s a bloke, I shouldn’t be surprised. Even my nearly perfect hubby thinks he’s invincible. Sure hubby, you’re invincible with your dodgy knee, tennis elbow and creaky neck. I guess I’ll have to forgive Crew. Let’s hope he learns his lesson and doesn’t disappoint me again. There’s one particular scene where Addy gets invited to The White House for dinner as her wine is being featured. The outfit that was described inspired me to create this Style Setter Tribute. The dress is not exactly the same, but once I saw it I had to use it. Ms Asher described it as silver from top to toe. I really enjoyed Vines and it kept my attention from start to finish. Yes, Crew peeved me off, but lucky for him, he does super sweet stuff to make up for it. I can’t wait for more Killers and I think Grady will have a very, very interesting story to tell.

    NOW LIVE! *Amazon US*Amazon UK* I am a huge fan of Brynne Asher's Carpino series, so when I saw that she was coming out with a new series I just about screamed like a major fangirl.

I honestly didn't even read the blurb before deciding that I was going to read this no matter what. And I am happy to announce that Vines definitely lived up to the greatness that I have come to expect from Ms. Asher. When Crew moved to Virginia he figured it would finally be his time to relax and set up his new life now that he's done with his job. The job that took way too much from him life. But when he meets his new neighbor, Addison, and her pet cow he knows he will be doing much more than just relaxing. Especially when his past comes back and has it's sight set on Addison. Now his job is to protect her, even if it's from himself. Okay I had no clue what direction this book was going to go in, but my suspicions about it were not correct. I figured out that Crew wasn't who I thought he would be early on, so then I was just left wondering what he was up to and why exactly he moved to Virginia. I loved that I had so many questions throughout the book and that they were answered in the best moments. There was no waiting until the end so that it would be this big shock right before the book ended, which I tend to get annoyed at. Instead I got my answers slowly as the book moved along and I was honestly shocked by some of them. Even Addison wasn't who I thought she was and I loved that her character surprised me. Overall I really liked her and Crew together and it was fun how their lives intertwined from the very beginning. They had an amazing chemistry with one another that I loves seeing, especially at the steamy moments. This book had so much involved with it and it was all very interesting. I loved getting the suspenseful moments mixed in with the sweet ones. It also had humor from the weirdest things (pet cows, anyone?) but it somehow worked with the story and just added to why I liked it so much. Bottom line, read this book!

That’s how this book made me feel, and that’s how I expect you to be after reading it. Completely blown away with Vines! It had been some time since Brynne Asher has released a book – if you haven’t yet read her Carpino Series, you MUST!!! – but I had not forgotten what an incredible writer she is, and this book only reinforced it in a way that I will never forget. What an incredible story! Vines is the first installment of Brynne Asher’s new series, Killers, and what an beginning it is! It gets you hooked from the very prologue, and Crew and Addy’s story is the perfect intro to what it’s looking up to be an extraordinary series. Crew Vega, a recently retired ‘Soldier of Fortune’ has spent the last ten years of his life on the dark, in every possible way. After all this time he thinks he will find the peace and quiet he needs in a remote enough place, which will allow him to train the next generation of professional assassins/killers. Of course all his well planned solitude goes down the drain when a stubborn and charismatic cow – yes, you read correctly and I promise you will love these cows’ role and participation on the plot, lol – decides to cross his fence as if it’s her right, much to her owner’s aggravation, and brings Addy to his path. Addy Wentworth has been living for the last year and a half, a peaceful and successful life as a vineyard and country business owner. She made a huge bet when she decide to acquire the struggling business, but due to her hard work and full dedication she succeeded and is recognized for it. So control and profound reasoning and pondering have always been ingrained in her, until Harry – her cow – decides to take a tour, and ends up inforcing her meeting of her new, dark and handsome, neighbor. A simple enough situation that will end up changing their life forever, because even after only a couple of words exchanged, their physical reaction to one another it’s impossible to deny. A smirk spreads across his scruffy face, and as if out of nowhere, a dimple appears. Smack dab on his left cheek. A dimple. Proof there’s soft under the sharp. Hell if that dimple isn’t the hottest thing I’ve ever seen, even if it is covered in scruff, sweat, dirt, and hidden under a sharp toughness. Damn if I don’t feel that in my dick at the same time my chest seizes. When the muscles ripple up my back, I have to clench my jaw to overcome it. This strange sensation is foreign, something I’ve never experienced. I can appreciate a hot woman, but my entire body seizing? I’m fighting the urge to charge across the room to get her away from him, when I don’t even know why he’s here. They are both caught of guard with their bodies and minds reaction to each other, because never before in their life someone caused any of these feelings in them. It’s all so new and so foreign that even though they don’t understand them, and after the initial shock, they are curious and expectant to where it will lead them. With Addison at my side, I find myself wanting nothing more than to fall into some sort of normal with her. I’ve never had normal, whatever that is. I absolutely ADORED both main characters, and yes, Crew may have made me melt on more than one occasion, but come on, I’m only a hot blooded female, how could I not?! This time I kiss her slow. She tastes and feels like she did earlier—perfect—but salty from her tears. He was so enchanted with Addy, and that just made him even more captivating for me. Anyone could see their attraction. With that sizzling magnetism, how could they not? There was no hiding there! It’s easy to see she can dish back your shit but still be all woman for you to enjoy, protect, and love on. You put that together with being targeted by old KGB, there’s no hope. You’re a fuckin’ goner.” And come on, anyone could see it in him, and even with the teasing, he was not one bit ashamed by it and that had me sighing. Even during a tease he managed to come around and make the situation HOT!!! Lordy, the mouth on this man! “Trust me, Grady.” I turn to him one last time before leaving. “There’s nothing soft on me when it comes to Addison Wentworth.” Crew really was the PERFECT damaged hero. He never thought he had a change of something so good as Addison, so when they start getting involved we can really feel his care and affection for her. Like she is the most precious thing in the world for him. “Never wanted something so much. Can’t stay away from you, can’t even get you out of my head. I’ve never had a shot at anything good, let alone someone like you.” He sees her as his reward after his life of barely surviving, lonely and mechanic existence, and he says and shows it to her over and over. Really, completely swoon-worthy, unforgettable hero! Directly to my top ten list of ‘all time best-book-boyfriends’! “You’re what I get. After ten years of doin’ what I needed to do, I settle next door to you.” “Worth every minute of ten years. Never thought I’d say this, but I’d do it all again if I knew you were waiting for me at the end.” Don’t get me wrong, Addy was just as incredible, and given her secretive past, she has proven to be a strong and resistant female character beyond belief! No wonder Crew fell for her the way he did! And she was one of the best heroines I have had the pleasure of reading. The way she made me connect with her and feel what she felt really was a testament of the author’s incredible writing talented. Through her eyes, Crew was even more captivating, and I didn’t think that was possible! For some reason, I can’t take my eyes off his hands. Hands that have touched every part of my body. He’s comforted me with those hands. He’s aroused me, he’s gently yet firmly bound me, he’s washed me, and he’s woken me with his soft touch. Of course that off-the-charts chemistry and palpable magnetism translated in some scorchingly HOT sex scenes and their no-bounds, all-in attitude and his dominant and filthy mind took it to whole new level. They were so perfectly and organically written, they became an extension of their feeling and smoking proof of their love. They were perfection! “Why do you always talk about it in the third person?” “Because my cock is its own person when it comes to you.” After everything is revealed and they are absolutely transparent and vulnerable with each other that made all the scenes that more deep, where we could really feel their personal relief and appreciation for what they had in the other’s full acceptance! A real case of the truth will set you free, where their love really shined through! “Not once did I think I could be who I am with anyone, let alone someone like you.” I don’t care if he has to go back to keep his friend safe, or if he decides to go back on his own to take care of justice his own way, ridding our world of threats. Even if this does make him a killer. I’ll wait. I’ll hate it, but I’ll wait because he’s mine, and having him back is more perfect than anything I could’ve dreamed. Because I love him. She knows it all and accepts me, my choices, my life, and she did it for me. Imagining my life with Crew is a thing of the past because I know it’s real. He’s the foundation of my future, and knowing this, I can relish the present and live my life. I apologize for the extensive quoting, but really, there was no way to translate the perfection of their – actually Ms. Asher’s – words. You can see for yourself that really, they could be any more perfect, and again I have to repeat myself, but really, there is no better word to describe this story. And like the main characters weren’t enough to have us completely enraptured in this book, Brynne Asher gave us a splendid group of secondary characters that created a stunningly humorous and light dynamic in the plot and made me fall in love and want more of them, almost as much as Crew and Addy. And these teasing with the potential couples for the next books, wow! But the author also showed us a incredibly appealing vulnerability in these men, these killing machines, that left me simultaneously shocked curious to find out more, because they're so much more than their steel hard facades. The life these men have chosen seems to come with solitude and loneliness. I can’t wait for Grady and Maya’s story!!! Seriously!!! After this beautiful and unforgettable book, I can’t imagine it getting any better, but with these enticingly delicious elements that she already presented for the couple, I think Ms. Asher will yet again surpass herself and knock it out of the park once again, and I will be counting down the days and stalk her mercilessly – I apologize in advance, LOL – until the next book comes out! Please hurry up, I want it NOW!!!! Suspenseful Contemporary Romance at its BEST! I give it 5 Perfect ‘Let’s Live’ Stars, but I would really give Vines 5 THOUSAND stars! What an extraordinary story!!! Loved EVERYTHING about it, from start to finish! Crew and Addy’s story is now one of my Top Ten Favorite Reads of the year (and considering how many books I’ve read, that’s saying something, lol)!!! Wow, just wow…. “Never once had a homecoming. Never had a home to come to. I thought I was traveling, seeing the world between jobs, but I wasn’t. I was wandering with nowhere to go.” “When I was gone, I made the decision to start living my life with you. I’m done lamenting death—I want to live. Don’t you want to live with me?” “Move away from death with me. Let’s live.” ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review For full review with Release Blitz, check out my blog post, http://gisspotreviews.com/index.php/2...

I love it when the couple work through the drama together, forging their bond stronger because of it. I also loved he witty banter between the characters. The little zingers and funny reference were great. HEROCrew Vega - he had me all heart eyes and swoony. He was a tough, alpha male. Settling in after 10 years as an "independent contractor" for the government, he never expected a wandering cow to bring him to the love of his life. I loved his take charge attitude and how he didn't let Addie push him away. Underneath his dominant exterior was a loving man who looked after his friends and family. HEROINEAddie- I'll be the first to admit that I am tough on heroines. I don't like them to be pushovers, yet I don't want an alpha, in your face heroine either. Addie was amazing. While she had endured a lot in he life, she was trying to make a go of it and surrounded herself with a great support system of friends. She was tough, yet vulnerable. Strong, yet she let herself lean on Crew. I think Miss Asher did an excellent job creating a balance for a great heroine. SEXUAL HISTORY While neither were virgins, their past sexual history was not in your face. Crew was not portrayed as a manwhore and I loved that. OM/OW DRAMA none whatsoever SECONDARY CHARACTERS I really enjoyed the secondary characters. The guys Crew worked with were great. We did not have to see any of them with other women. The were stand up guys and I cant wait to see what their stories entail. The gang that worked with Addie were awesome. They were funny and looked after Addie. ENDING A good epilogue that was 2 years out. While I like a further look into their future, I thought she wrapped it up well.

The setting was unique and the storyline was exciting. Add in several great side characters, the romantic dance between the main characters, and funny cows. All of that and you get a fun, romantic suspense. Addy owns a winery where most of the story takes place. She’s a great heroine who I could respect and I enjoyed her relationship with the cows. The cows had enough personality to be considered side characters. They were a funny addition. Then there were also other great side characters at the winery that brought a lot to the story. Crew, is the kind of hero I like. He’s quiet...speaks more with a look than talking, he’s very protective, and despite what he does for a living, he’s genuinely a good guy. He also brings a few very, interesting side characters to the story. I like that this is a series of standalones to look forward to more. I can see myself re-reading this one.

I loved that these characters didn't push each other away, there was no OW/OM drama and the trials they go through only make this couple stronger. The drama in this book comes from outside sources and strengthens their bond. I can't wait for Grady and Maya's story next. I also really want an HEA for Asa.

Addy is definitely attracted to Crew, still she attempts to keep her distance, Crew just steamrolled all her attempts....which is a good thing since someone is out to destroy Addy. It will take all Crew's formidable skills to keep her out of harms way!! All-in-all, a fantastic read with a yummy alpha. I'm absolutely looking forward to the rest of this series!!! *A huge shout out and big thanks to Lori K. for recommending this book, thanks Lori!!!!

    When I found out that the lovely Ms. Asher had a new book in the works. I was so excited. Then ARCs where being given and I was all over this shit. How could I but not request a copy to review? I finished this book yesterday and I started my review yesterday. And now I'm stuck. It’s not that I don’t have anything to write about Vines quite the opposite actually but how to pick and choose?

Then ARCs where being given and I was all over this shit. How could I but not request a copy to review? I finished this book yesterday and I started my review yesterday. And now I'm stuck. It’s not that I don’t have anything to write about Vines quite the opposite actually but how to pick and choose? Mainly so that you can go out and buy the book. To be continued…… How frank can you be with a book? Where do you draw the line? Do you base your review on your personal preference or objective in thinking that although this book isn’t for you, you still enjoyed it to some extent? Overall I enjoyed this book and the new world that Ms. Asher has created and right from the beginning I was sucked into the story that although I can only take a 45 minute lunchbreak I easily hit the 60 minute mark. Ops. Luckily no one noticed. On top of that I nearly forgot that the tram I take was on a different schedule and nearly forgot to get out to get the bus. I can clearly see the attraction to the book it has all the ingredients that just make you want to read it but there were just some things that drove me bat shit crazy. I had difficulties with the book. No matter it still deserves four stars. Addison Addy Wentworth. I loved her at the beginning of the book she is kind, fun, has a vulnerable streak but deep down she has a spine of steel. I was very intrigued about her background. And what a background she did have. I can’t see where the turning point is for me when I lost that connection with her. Her ramblings were meant to be endearing and they were but her whole questioning of trusting Crew irritated me. I just to shout at her ‘Come on woman, what else you gonna do? Huh? Yes she has trust issues and I really do understand that but at some point you got to let it go and her inner musing on that topics was driving me to Bedlam. I swear this is just me. Addy bought a winery and has turned the business into a successful enterprise. What she didn’t know when she bought the property? The winery came with five fixed employees and five cows. My favourite is definitely Harry. I hereby introduce you to Harry. What I loved is Crew Vega. He is a superb Hero. He has everything you want in a hero. Crew is a walking contradiction. He is alert, aloof, tense and relaxed with a mystery surrounding him. I like his background of being off the grid for ten years and doing things that other people can’t and won’t do. Their first conversation together? Hilarious and well unforgettable. “Crew. Crew Vega.” I frown deeper. “That’s your name? „Still no change in facial expression. “Yeah.” “Oh, sorry. That’s just a little,” I pause, raising my eyebrows. “Unusual.” “I know. Addy likes to give free wine to her neighbours turns out Vega isn’t that impressed. “Do you drink wine?” “Only to be polite. When I’m forced to be polite.” Adjusting to civilian life isn’t an easy life but with buying the farm in Virginia he wants to start a new chapter of his life even if there is a string attached to him getting out of the business. Crew can’t help but not stay away from Addison and the more he finds out the more he is taken with her. She also has her own brand of trouble though and it goes way back some serious old ties that add a great plot line to the story. Crew is real, good and well he fights the bad guys. Sucker for a damsel in distress. Addy had too much resistance to the relationship with Crew that I found it hard to get the connection in their relationship. But in saying that and I’m contradicting myself here for those same reasons above is the exact reason why it did actually work for me. It was frustrating but a good frustrating. Now I personally think that Ms. Asher could have gone more in depth with this plot of the book and on top of that it could have been grittier but remember I am only a reviewer and not the writer and well I’m opinion doesn’t weigh in by a lot. Besides 4 stars so need I say more? Nuff said really. All characters are great in the book. Especially Addy’s group of friends. Oh how that name makes me cringe. I preferred Crew calling her Addison like balm for the soul. Who I’m really interested in? Grady. With Maya. Woohoo He looks over at me and states, “It’s a cow.” I narrow my eyes mumbling. “No shit.” Looking back at my neighbours pet, I cross my own arms wondering how I’m going to get her home. . “You didn’t tell me there’d be a cow,” he accuses, irritated. “Kiss my ass, man. It’s not my cow.” Need I say more? See I can’t wait. Book received by author in exchange for an honest review. Review can also be found @ http://jerisbookattic-reviewblog.blog... See spoiler for what really got to me though. (view spoiler)[Sex scenes were hot and although the anal play was unexpected. It was done really well. The one thing that really took me out of that scene is that Addy constantly referred to calling it a pinkie which just ruined it for me. (hide spoiler)]

    I've read a couple of books by this author, and every time I DNF and I couldn't understand why I lost interest because the plot and characters would usually be a perfect storm for me. But I figured it out why I can't seem to get into her books: Too much interaction with secondary characters. They just seem to come out of the woodwork and then we have to pause the story so the h can tell her friends what happened in the last couple chapters in the book. I HATE that. I already know what happened!

I already know what happened! I just read it! You don't have to hash out every single detail with the secondary characters! I remember in another book the H and h were about to have an intimate moment and then her ENTIRE family bursts through her house like "Lets have dinner together!" and the H and h are like "That sounds like a great idea!" *eye roll* Sometimes I love the secondary characters more then the main characters and sometimes I wish they didn't exist at all.

'Vines' is a deliciously sexy and thrilling romance perfect for fans of Kristen Ashley. I ADORED the Virginia wine country setting. And so much YES to Crew Vega!! Even the name is sexy and strong. Addy is a wonderfully quirky and refreshing heroine. She has settled in the Virginia wine country, having recently purchased an historic vineyard complete with a very unique staff plus a small herd of cows. The setting alone grabbed me! Addy is trying to start her life over, but right from the beginning you can sense that is much more to her than meets the eye. Enter her new neighbor Crew Vega, a gorgeous, no-nonsense hunk of a man who has his eye on Addy, in more ways than one. To me, 'Vines' is reminiscent of the Rock Chick series of books by Kristen Ashley, with a thrilling, fast-paced storyline, a funny and smart heroine and one Alpha male who means business. I found 'Vines' to be a very refreshing, VERY sexy and totally enjoyable book with a unique voice. This is my first book by Brynne Asher and I have now purchased all of her other titles, and can't wait for the next book in this series. Highly recommend this funny and VERY hot romantic suspense story! ARC provided by the author in return for an honest review.

    Full disclosure - I had the pleasure of beta reading this first book in the Killers series (hence, no rating/full review). That said, I'm happy to say that Ms. Asher's writing continues to grow stronger with each book. Very enjoyable romance with danger...and cows. Not dangerous cows, just cute ones. Looking forward to the next. Full disclosure - I had the pleasure of beta reading this first book in the Killers series (hence, no rating/full review).

What Crew did not expect is a woman who surprises him and thinks her cows are pets. Addy Wentworth relocated needing a fresh start, she bought a vineyard even though she knew nothing about wine and created a new life for herself. Addy doesn't know what to make of Crew, he is intimidating, determined, and makes her heart start beating. When Crew makes his move toward Addy, she is not sure she can trust. Crew knows more about Addy than she thinks and realizing she is in danger has Crew on edge, not only because he doesn't need or want the attention but because he is falling for and plans to do everything he can to keep Addy safe and by his side. Exciting new series that I could not put down. This was fantastic, I did not know what to expect with Crew because he is bit of a mystery and his background unfolds slowly but perfectly. Loved Addy, she is quirky and even though she should back down she has no problem standing up to Crew. Loved the supporting characters, they added a variety of elements to the story and enhanced it. Another 5 star read from Brynne Asher.

I love the way this author brings her characters to life, giving me a lovely warm glow as I escaped into this story. I cannot lie, the smut is hot too. I devoured this author's previous series, Athica Lane, and while this shared the authentic characters, strong alpha vibe, humour, suspense and good smut that made that series such a fabulous read, this one didn't quite grab me in the same way. I was a little lost at times by the mystery narrator, trying to figure out who they were and how they fit into the story, so that was a little distracting. It rather felt to me at times that the suspense element of this story overshadowed the romance. My personal preference would be for the suspense stuff to be more in the background, secondary to the romance, although I enjoyed that it gave our alpha hero Crew plenty of opportunity to show off his growly, uber protective side. That's just me though, so don't let that put you off. This is a complete story and definitely worth a read if you fancy escaping into a romantic suspense with a strong alpha and a feisty independent female lead. Recommended. Thanks to the author for the arc.

I was HOOKED from the start and could't stop reading until the end! I CAN NOT wait to read the next story about Grady, which, yes I have already and waiting for me on my Kindle and when that 3rd story comes out on Asa......oh hell yes I will be diving straight in! The storyline was played out seamlessly, it flowed perfectly and had my attention from start to finish. For my safety gang peeps, well, you will love this I truly believe:) Any hoo, this was a GRAND SLAM read for me and left me with a huge ass smile on my face. Please oh please let them continue to grace me in the next two books because they are one awesome, sexy, adorable couple!!!!!!!

    So this book....yeah. This is a slow burn, in the very best possibly way. I love how the author takes her time setting up the pull between Crew and Addy. These are great characters and she lets you fall in love with them apart first. It's something that is really lacking in a lot of romance these days, and while I'm all about the dirty, I want characters I care about and a plot, too. This book has it all, in spades. The action was intense, like bite your nails, white knuckle your Kindle intense. So this book....yeah. This is a slow burn, in the very best possibly way.

In a lot of books, you read about badass men, dangerous alphas, but it doesn't always feel legit. Here, it is SO legit. lol The man exudes a quiet strength and menace that, at the risk of repeating myself, is SO HOT. lol And swoon worthy. Addy was awesome, def not just generic female filler to a great male MC, she was real and smart and strong and kind. Three dimensional in the best way, and NOT the type to just fall senseless at the hero's feet. Loved the winery stuff, it was so real and made me feel like I was really there. You could tell the author did her homework, not in a let-me-drown-you in facts way, but just enough to sweep you away. This book def swept me away. My top contemporary for 2017 so far. <3

    A start of another awesome series! I recently read Brynne Asher's Carpino series and when I was done with that I was sad I wouldn't read more of this awesome family. I was excited to see that she started a new series. I was a little leery about the title of the series Killers.

I thought it was well written and loved how the mystery of each of the characters was revealed. I'm dying to know when the next book will be out and who we have lined up to fall in love. I do hope it involves Addy's new down-on-her-luck renter and Crew's best friend!

This is the first story I've read by this author and I liked it well enough that I'm likely to try more of her work in the future. Addy is the owner of a vineyard in Virginia. Addy lost her father at an early age and only had her mother for years. They were very close and when her mother died, Addy was a bit lost. She decided to sprinkle her mother's ashes in Virginia (because she was from there) and while in the area, she found the vineyard she ended up buying. Along with the vineyard, Addy got a number of employees that quickly became like family and 5 cows that (unintentionally) ended up becoming pets. Crew is a good guy that's had a rough life. Crew just bought a remote house in Virginia with lots of lands for his new business pursuit. He used to be an officer with the Secret Service but after his father died due to terrorists, Crew's life took a turn. He left his job and became a soldier of fortune which had him travelling all around the world. Crew finally decided he'd had enough so he moved to a training position as a sort of "retirement". When Crew looked at the place he bought, he had a background check run on his perspective neighbor, Addy, and she seemed like she'd be a fine neighbor. When Crew meets her, he knows that she's just knocked his world off kilter because he suddenly can't think about much of anything past her. Addy is attracted to Crew the first time they meet but she's way too disturbed by him and decides it's best to keep him at arm's length (or further). Addy's employees don't help much because they do everything they can to get Crew to come around the vineyard more. Crew is prompted into quicker action than he intended (in regards to Addy) when a "high level CIA target being investigated for treason" decides to show up at her vineyard. Crew quickly realizes that the visit is more than just a chance encounter and decides to integrate himself into Addy's life. He gets a deeper delve into her past and finds that there are some unexpected skeletons in her closet, ones that he feels compelled to keep her safe from. Addy is a smart lady with some control issues. She soon realizes that her life has taken a turn and that Crew might be her only chance to get through things safe and sound. Addy decides to trust Crew but it's really not easy for her (because of her control issues) so she pushes for as much info as she can get, both about her situation but also about Crew (to make her feel more comfortable trusting him and giving up her control). There is a bit of angst between Crew and Addy initially, but once Addy starts to trust Crew, it goes pretty smoothly (with one notable but not horrible hiccup). The external issues (such as the CIA target) do take longer to work out but by the end, everything is settled and Addy and Crew are enjoying a very nice HEA together. This was a very enjoyable story. I liked Addy as the heroine...she was smart and sensible and also a bit fun, which made me enjoy reading about her. Crew was a good hero...a bit pushy but he's rather alpha male-ish so that's to be expected. Overall, the story was very good, I liked the characters and I had no major complaints so I'd recommend it. :)

    I got the privilege of beta reading Vines and loved it. It was sweet, sexy, had some action, and Crew was an amazing alpha hero. Since I was so involved with the beta reading, I'm not going to rate it, but if you like sweet, sexy, fun books with quirky characters, you'll love vines.

    This was fun and sexy. Not much push and pull going on, just a lot of lovin' 😉. Crew is a great protective alpha. The totally satisfies my itch for a dangerous hero who is all soft and mushy for his girl. Addy fit great into my kick-ass-heroine category. She's strong and feisty but doesn't cross over into obstinate. I love all those fun backup characters and their pieced together little family. Looking forward to learning more about Grady and about Asa. This was fun and sexy. Not much push and pull going on, just a lot of lovin' 😉. Crew is a great protective alpha.
