Contemporary Romance, LGBTQ
Drunk on love.
Like a well-aged whiskey, master distiller and old-money entrepreneur Malone Kensington is elegant and refined. Unfortunately he's also a perfectionist who is more dedicated to the success of his generations-old company than his own love life.
That company needs a public spokesman.
What Colton Hale lacks in sophistication, he more than makes up for with the charisma that's allowed him to survive on the street from a young age and charm his way into the lucrative—if overwhelming—public position at the Kensington Distillery. When Mal takes Colt under his wing, hoping to polish off his rough edges, opposites attract and a passionate romance blossoms despite the differences in age and background. But can it survive a Kensington Board of Directors who believe Colt is nothing but a gold digger and a kidnapper determined to profit from the love of Mal's life—dead or alive?

In WHISKEY AND MOONSHINE, we meet Colt and Mal in a serious case of opposites attract. Colt has been living on the streets since he was fifteen, after coming out to his parents. After leaving Toledo in a hurry, he ends up in the Smoky Mountains, where he visits the Kensington Distillery and falls in love...with the building and the process. Mal is the owner of the distillery, a billionaire, and not at all interested in the public side of work. He wants to make his whiskey and moonshine only. Circumstances throw these two together, friendship and love keep them there.
This is a low-angst, slow burn romance, with plenty of story to get your teeth into. I love how Colt worked his way up from sweeping the floors, to taking a chance and making it work. The characters in here are all well-written, both the main characters and the supporting cast.
Either the author was brought up in a distillery, she had insider knowledge, or the subject matter was extremely well researched! Either way, I loved how in depth she went, without giving away any secrets.
With no editing or grammatical errors, this was an easy read that I thoroughly enjoyed, and have no hesitation in recommending.
