R E V I E W ➠ Bourbon Love Notes by Shari J. Ryan
In a split second, life can steal a last breath … and derail all future plans.
While flying home after a phone call that left me heartbroken, a row to myself would have been ideal. Instead, I was unknowingly sitting shoulder to shoulder with Brett Pearson; a strikingly attractive single dad and ex-Marine. I could have pretended not to notice the man, but there was something familiar about him.
It didn’t take long before I pieced together where I knew him from or why he was back in my life.
With chaos holding me hostage, I wanted to hide but couldn’t avoid Brett, our old family friend, and my teenage crush, because he kindly offered to help out with my family’s business—The Barrel House.
Handling my father’s distillery would be a distraction from my brutal reality. Except, I never paid close attention to the art of making bourbon, unlike Brett, who was full of bourbon knowledge. He offered to teach me a thing or two, but all I could focus on was the way his lips moved when he spoke to me.
I needed to grieve, and my head was in the wrong place at the wrong time, but my heart was splitting at the seams.
Bourbon was spilled, drinks were shared, but could passion ignite from a dying last wish?

“She must have been some girl,”
I tell him, trying to breath after the statement.
Brett’s lips curl into a small smile. “You sure are,” he says.
This is a NEW to me author and books! What attracted me to this book was the Blurb and then of course the cover, it’s a sweet but sexy one if you know what I mean so I thought I’d love to give it a try. It was definitely right up my alley, and the beginning was promising for me but unfortunately it slowed down until about 50-ish % meaning, the story felt more the cause to me than anything else. The slow burn, was a REALLY SLOW BURN and I mean some like that and that’s fine but for me, I need a little bit more. Aside from that:
The story is based on the heroine who moved away form her childhood home, and is with a man who she was sure would be the one. When an incident happens back home, and she decides on a whim to leave. When she comes back home she runs into a handsome man who looks very familiar. After she arrives home and finds out what is going on, things only go down for her. The hero is a handsome, sexy, sweet oh so sweet single dad. He is in a sense alpha but mostly very sweet and kind. His daughter is the sweetest and this story really all together is SWEET. Watch out for the tear jerker too. It hinted for the heroine’s sister and hero’s brother, but I am not sure, this is my first read by the author.
