A Shot of BourbonA Shot of Bourbon (The Bourbon Series #1)
By A.C. Land
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: March 29, 2016
Publisher: BookFish Books

In the little highway town of Bourbon, Missouri, deadly secrets lurk behind Southern charm.

Seventeen year old Charli Valentine didn’t expect to spend the last few weeks of summer break nursing a broken heart, icing a black eye, and watching her ex kiss another girl. Since being a good girl has gotten her nothing but heartache, Charli decides to give rebellion a try. She pigs out, drinks, and hangs with Luke Parker, the son of the infamous Bourbon Butcher.

But there’s more to Luke than meets the eye. His tough exterior and terrible dialect hide a good person despite his bad boy reputation. No matter how hard he tries to fight it, Luke is drawn to Charli’s innocence and finds her clumsiness too charming to resist. Though they’re from opposite sides of the tracks, neither can resist the magnetism drawing them together.

When Charli discovers a box in her mother’s closet, she pieces together the truth about Bourbon’s past and uncovers a deadly secret about her family. And once Luke learns of it, he vows to protect Charli no matter the cost.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

17-year-old Rich girl left alone for a week while parents are overseas anniversary trip and no one expects trouble? Well, trouble is always to be found. In this case, Charli is interested in finding why she doesn’t know her birth father and why her mom clams up at the mention. Add in the one boy mom says to stay away from no matter, an overbearing, confused, borderline abusive sometime boyfriend, and an overprotective best friend with her own issues and we have a roller coaster ride in the making. Seeing Luke and Charli become friends and overcome their differences and allowing them to learn about each other, regardless of prejudice of economic barriers and fight to save each other was worth the ride. The question is, will they both be saved or will one take the fall to prevent the other from the pain of surviving this heartache in the making?

The cliffhanger at the end isn’t atrocious either. It makes me interested in the battles to come!

My Review via Goodreads


Since she was a little girl, all she ever wanted to do was dance…
But what happens, when the ones meant to protect you above all others are the ones to hurt you the most?
For Lilly, it was easier to hide within herself and her dancing.
Until the right someone comes along and gives her a reason to fight back. He helps her trust again. .She inspires him to dream again.
With one more performance, her dream is within her reach. Her past keeps her struggling for her future but will she let it stand in her way of her dream too?
Will her dream come true? Does she have what it takes? Can she overcome the demons of her past and find herself again?
Love, Humor, Passion, Artistry, a story of acceptance.

Compromised by Emmy Curtis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you are afraid to read this because you haven’t read the rest of the series, then worry no more! This is a stand-alone that flows seamlessly from the first page until the last. So many times I find the romantic/romantic suspense genre to be lacking in content. You get a lot of smexy scenes but no real content. “Compromised” surprised me because I felt for Sadie and Simon. They both had realistic characterization and I could feel the anger and pain from each. Of course, being this genre, there were a few eye rolling worthy scenes of “I love you” ‘I hate you” (as I think of beating off to the smell of your pillow) type moments, but it wasn’t distracting enough to make me want to put it down. I actually read the whole thing in a few hours.
I really like the author’s writing style. I could tell it wasn’t just words falling out of her head. She had to have had experience with military or put at least a little effort in the research because her facts were spot on.
As much as I loved Sadie and Simon, I found Garret to be my favorite character. He was so funny but he had Simon’s back from the moment he set foot on the ground.
The only real drawback is I was left wondering what happened to Simon’s team. I’m hoping that will be addressed in the net installment. Speaking of the next installment… My main man Malone Garret will be starring in Risk of Exposure (Alpha Ops #6) set to release May 6, 2016. I, for one, can’t wait.
Thank you @EmmyCurtis19 and Barclay Publicity for this review opportunity! Though I received a free copy, it in no way affected the outcome of my review!
