Drunk on You (Bourbon Brothers Book 1) Kindle Edition
Justin Morgan would happily drown the pain of his injured leg-and the guilt he brought back from Afghanistan-in bourbon. Except, there won't be any booze if he doesn't rescue his family's century-old distillery from financial ruin. The problem? Allie McGrath-youngest daughter of the distillery's co-owners, and the one woman he can't have.
Allie has been in love with Justin since...well, she's always been in love with him. Now he's home, broken up over the death of her brother, and he needs help. She can fix the distillery-she's sure of it-but no one's taking her or her sweet new idea seriously. Convincing Justin is her only hope.
Allie is more tempting than Justin expected, threatening a promise he swore he'd never break. If he can't keep their attraction under control, there's a solid chance they'll send the whole enterprise crumbling to the ground...if he doesn't crash and burn first.
Each book in the Bourbon Brothers series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Justin was, as I mentioned, totally oblivious to Allie's feelings for him and also to how he treated Allie. I liked Justin a lot, but he really was totally clueless at times. I thought his struggles were beautifully written and the 'grand gesture' (being vague so as not to spoil) was exactly what I wanted from him. Allie was a sweetheart who was likable from start to finish. I found myself feeling bad for her when Justin would be so incredibly obtuse, but she was also a strong woman who didn't *need* Justin to make herself whole. She just needed a chance to be taken seriously as an adult.
Beyond the second chance love story there was the story of two friends who had lost someone that they both loved dearly, and the ways that they dealt with that loss. I got choked up more than once while the topic of David was being dealt with, it was written that beautifully. As someone from a military family, stories that are written about military veterans and the aftermath of war can be questionable at best, but Ms. Stanley did a great job dealing with this topic.
Although this is a love story, it was also so much more. It was a story about love and loss, and a story about friendship and companionship. I mean this as a compliment when I say that this felt like a Hallmark movie but with a deeper story line. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a love story that makes you feel something while you read.
I look forward to reading the second book of this series to find out exactly what Brandon is up to.

Justin Morgan has just returned from Afghanistan where he saw his best friend killed. His best friend who is more like a brother to him, and who he has known all his life. His dad is pretty insistent he hang around and take over the bourbon making business like his responsible twin, but that is the farthest thing from Justin’s mind. He’s ready to get out, and get as far away from the family business as he can. The only two things keeping him in place is a really bad sprained ankle and one Miss Allie McGrath, his best friends little sister.
Allie has been in love with Justin for ages, ever since she figured out what love is. He hasn’t exactly been oblivious to her, but he hasn’t really taken a good look at her. At one point, she thought there might have been something more between them, but Justin went and unknowingly blew that idea out of the water. Over the years, Allie’s gotten over him, or so she thinks…. but now he’s home again and she’s fighting for the distillery, while trying to prove to her family that she’s got what it takes to do the job. She’s got an idea but no one will take her seriously but Justin.
These two meet up again in a coat check closet at one of their grandparents anniversaries (Don’t mind the twerking old people.). Things get steamy from that point on. Throw in a good dose of hilarious moments, a dash of heart break, a smidgen of angst-y goodness and you have one perfectly thrown together glass of bourbon. Or in this case, a really good book!!
