Quinn Bazemore is a high-powered PR exec with plans to move forward her career by taking on her biggest project yet: King’s Finest Distillery. Not only do they create world-renowned bourbon, but Quinn’s family is also tied to the Abbotts, the owners of King’s Finest--her grandfather’s farm supplies fruit to the distillery, and he and the patriarch of the Abbott family are old friends. And Max Abbott, King’s Finest’s VP of marketing, was the man who broke her heart thirteen years ago.
Max Abbott has never forgotten Quinn, but he’s floored when she walks in as the PR expert helping the company with new ventures. After so many years apart, it’s hard for old feelings of betrayal, but also affection, not to come back up. And working together gives them both opportunities to see the people they have grown into, and perhaps find out if there’s a possible second chance at a relationship.
But family comes first for both Quinn and Max, and even though they were teenagers when they shared a passionate summer together, those feelings have lasted all of their lives. Will they be able to put their differences and grudges aside to enjoy what could be a perfect match?
The fourth book in Reese Ryan’s Bourbon Brothers series, A REUNION OF RIVALS is an emotional second-chance romance. The backdrop of the King’s Finest Distillery is glamourous and the wealthy Abbott siblings at the heart of the story are all getting their chance at love. Max is hardworking, serious, and harbors deep-seated regret over his breakup with Quinn many years ago. She’s never forgotten him either, but Quinn has made a name for herself in a field outside of the family business. Quinn’s tenacious and lively spirit was refreshing to read, as was watching her spar with Max when she had a great idea--be it for work or otherwise. There are mentions of previous couples from earlier in the series, as well as hints about the next stories to follow, all told with care and panache by seasoned romance author Reese Ryan. Ryan knows just the right way to describe these thoughtful contemporary romances, and her latest novel is no different. An easy quick read, A REUNION OF RIVALS is a second chance romance with heart.
