himself, too I absolutely loved how Ms Gibson has Jake s mom set him straight about her choices he had no right to take Paige s choices away from her Now I am a lover of romance I need some sparks yumminess Ms Gibson had sparks zips between her h h, but she had a PG rated read that was my only complaint about this read,scorching scenes This romance was a page turning that I could not put down as it showcased Ms Gibson talents to spin a yarn with hilarious ROFL moments, create dazzling UNEXPECTED characters that pulled me into their Napa Valley, CRAVE some Chablis or Cabernet, share the moonwalk with kooky Nana threw in a meddlesome family into the mix Here is just a little tidbit about the gorgeous cover, it totally happens in this tale Ms Gibson earns my score of 4 fingers up 7 toes for this romance, even thou it was rated PG, because it has a true family feel NetGalley ARC given for my honest review All Paige wanted was her own grape vineyard All jake wanted was to sell the one he had to help his other businesses Can love still happen with all that in the way What a great book Loved it. I like when the author s don t take the easy way out of tough situations There were two such situations in this book and I thought I knew exactly how they would play out One regarding Jake s secret played out exactly as I thought it would The other regarding his business ventures did not I like it when my predictions are wrong and I m still satisfied at the end of the story.I m not a fan of reading about no strings attached relationships and although this is what Paige and Jake were claiming I like when the author s don t take the easy way out of tough situations There were two such situations in this book and I thought I knew exactly how they would play out One regarding Jake s secret played out exactly as I thought it would The other regarding his business ventures did not I like it when my predictions are wrong and I m still satisfied at the end of the story.I m not a fan of reading about no strings attached relationships and although this is what Paige and Jake were claiming they had it was obvious it was muchthan just lust driving them together As far as content this was not a clean read There was a sex scene that faded to black once clothes had been removed Also innuendo and mild language throughout I don t drink alcohol but actually I found the information in this book about how grapes are grown, tested and harvested to be interesting This was a fun setting for a book.Rating 4 Stars Great bookContent fade to black sex scene, innuendo, mild languageSource Netgalley I usually only read clean romances This is not one Having said that, I thought the storyline was very original It was a romantic, sensual story I laughed a lot at the grandmother She was a riot with all her suspicions This read a lot like a Harlequin romance It was well written and a stand alone I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
