“I want to give you my gratitude someplace other than that pretty mouth of yours.” - Javier Meza
The sudden and tragic death of her mother throws Hannah Hawkins into a position she doesn’t feel at all prepared for. With the duty of leading her family’s decades-long moonshining business weighing heavy on her shoulders, the last thing she needs is something making her transition even harder. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what she gets. A band of vicious new players has arrived in small-town Harlan, Kentucky, and while what they really want remains a mystery, it quickly becomes clear they’re willing to stoop to dark lengths to get it. To fight off a beast, Hannah realizes she needs to join forces with a rival. 
Javier Meza may be the sole heir to his family’s moonshining empire, but he’s certainly no leader. He has no head for business or diplomacy, preferring to spend his days in the trenches, making corn liquor with the rest of the “cooks.” That doesn’t mean he isn’t more than willing to step up and take charge when his family finds themselves in danger. Forming a shaky partnership with the Hawkins family is one thing, but marrying Hannah Hawkins to keep their deal on the straight and narrow is something else entirely. 
From All Things Burn author, Jodie Slaughter comes a multicultural romance about illegal white whiskey, a marriage of convenience between decades-long rival families, and Black Appalachia. Readers of Kenya Wright, Theodora Taylor, and Lucy Score & Claire Kingsley will enjoy this full-length romance novel with a strong heroine, swoon-worthy hero, and a very satisfying HEA.
This is definitely a book that got sold to me via social media. I've never heard of this author before, and I definitely am going to read more of her work. This one was a cool modern arranged marriage book but also about moonshiners? What? That's cool!

This one was kind of a slow burn romance where the two try to figure things out. Especially because they DON'T want to be married at all. At times I was so frustrated by the slowness but it was so worth it when things started to heat up. 

Also there is only one bed at one point! That's like my catnip. I love it so much.

I really enjoyed this book and I'm definitely going to read more from this author down the line.
