Warning: love on the rocks.
Sexy bourbon billionaire Hunter Knox hired me to turn around the failing family business, but I wound up losing him the company he loves. Now I have to make it right - which won't be easy when he's off the grid at a cabin in the woods, drinking himself into a sexy rugged stupor.
But if there's one thing I know, it's that Hunter is worth a shot. Or two. He better line them up, because after tonight, I'm never drinking again.
Lila left us hanging after that killer cliffhanger in Part Two, but she brings us Part Three and make everything right with the world again. Well at least for some all is good, while other not so much.
Hunter's words as he walked away from Ally rocked her to the core. She's lost someone special after her actions cost Hunter everything and her job is in jeopardy since she can't even seem to make it into the office. After numerous attempts, Hunter still won't return her calls or texts. Although she knows that wallowing in self pity can only last so long, she needs something to kick her butt into gear. And that kick is in the form of a TV ad. Now's she's more determined than ever to get to Hunter and make things right, even if they can never be together.
Hunter's been MIA and not likely to appear any time soon. He's let his family, friends, and himself down. He is out of the company expect for his shares, but what good is that when the Knox name no longer holds the weight it used to. On the surface, he blames Ally but really, he blames himself.
When Ally finally finds Hunter, well let's just say that it's not a friendly encounter. But Ally is feisty and on a mission, one that she will not give up on no matter what Hunter says. She's just got to get a plan together and then convenience Hunter to act.
Knox Liquors may be out, but Hunter Knox has a passion that he's been keeping secret and now that Ally knows it, well she's kicking butt and taking names. They must work together to make their dream a reality and prove that Hunter is no shrinking violet. We've all made mistakes before, it's how we choose to learn from lessons to discover the type of person we can become.
With each passing day, the sexual tension grows but can they really make a go of it while maintaining a working relationship? And more to the point, is that something they really want? So much has happened that they have to ask if they can trust each other again.
This series is epic to say the least. It proves that a chance encounter, no matter how spontaneous, can change your life forever. Hunter is this reader's favorite Lila hero, but don't tell Asher or Grant. Ally is strong and independent that will go after what she wants even if it's the hard road. Together they are an unstoppable pair that will take the world by storm. This storyline is everything you would want from Lila Monroe with a healthy shot of liquid gold. By far my favorite series to date!
“Mmmmm.” Hints of caramel, a touch of cinnamon, and was that…nutmeg? I licked my lips. “Tastes like autumn.”
“Next,” Hunter said softly. There was a clink as he set down the bottle, and another as he picked the second one up. Then that cool glass was against my warm mouth again, and I shivered as I felt his breath ghost against the back of my neck. I could practically feel the heart radiating off his body behind me. A drop of condensation slipped down the neck of the bottle, rolling down the fevered skin of my neck.
Oh, right, the beer. I took a gulp, hoping the cool liquid would calm my disordered thoughts. No such luck—but it was delicious, strongly hoppy this time, notes of lime and orange and vanilla, with a peppery finish. “Damn, that’s good. It’s like spring!”
“I’m glad you like it,” Hunter murmured. His arm encircled my waist—no, he was just reaching for another bottle, no, that was his other hand, this one was definitely resting on my waist, lightly, just above my hipbone.
I didn’t dare open my eyes, for fear I would find I was only dreaming.
“Another?” Hunter invited.
“Yes please.” My voice was a whisper, hoarse with desire I hoped he couldn’t hear.
And there it came, his gentle hands guiding it to my mouth, the smooth glass with its beads of moisture kissing my skin, and that that ambrosia sliding slowly down my throat: brown sugar and anise and a hint of…chocolate.
“Ooooooh,” I moaned in appreciation. I licked my lips.
And heard a sharp intake of breath from Hunter. “You like that?” he whispered.
“So much,” I replied, feeling the heat in my body gather itself tight and low.
Even with my eyes closed I was vividly aware of how close he was standing to me; I could smell him, hear each breath he took. His hand on my waist seemed to grip a fraction tighter, wrinkling the fabric of my dress—the hand holding the bottle seemed to tremble slightly, I could feel his breath ruffling my hair as he bent closer, those warm lips only inches from—
My eyes burst open and I almost leapt away from him. We didn’t have time for sexual tension! That was what had gotten us into trouble in the first place. My mind fluttered rapidly over possible topics of redirection.
It was difficult. It mostly wanted to think of Hunter shirtless.
Maybe pantsless too.
