Set in Southern California, Diamond Drake is apart of the Drake dynasty who owns a vineyard. Although she's a daddy's girl, she works hard as she is apart of the family business. As they are looking to expand on the vineyard, she has to work in close proximity to Jackson 'Boss' Wright, owner of Boss Construction.
I love romance novels that involves family and this book was an exception. While reading this story, I enjoyed myself immensely along with getting to know the Drake family.
Diamond and Jackson's first encounter was interesting and a bit entertaining. The story remained at the same peak while characters are being established. However, once everyone was established the story and the plot took off. In the beginning, Diamond was playing hard to get but once Jackson's charms and physical attributes takes a hold of her, she is unable to resist. Jackson was always taught not to mix business with pleasure, but with Diamond, he is looking to break those rules. I enjoyed their romance and physical attraction/ bedroom workouts throughout the story as I thought it got better as the story developed. What I also enjoyed about the story was that the author not only gave us romance but some mystery as well surrounding Jackson's past that could put everyone in danger. I believe this gave the plot an extra push.
As for the family, I loved all of them. I selfishly wish their parents had more kids but I'm satisfied. We were introduced to Donovan and Dexter, Diamond's brothers. Donovan is the serious one and I can't wait for his story. Without giving too much away, just reading about his introduction to a certain female has me a little impatient for his story. Dexter is the love them and leave them type and the youngest of the family. Papa Dee, now I know Papa Dee isn't getting his story but I love Papa Dee.
Lastly, the dialogues, comments and thoughts between the characters got a head shake and a smile from me as I enjoyed some of the reactions from the characters. I enjoyed the book and commend the author on a well thought out story.
Intimacy Level: VERY GOOD
