4.5 Stars

A brand new romance from Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Sarina Bowen!


Once upon a time I spent an evening flirting with a handsome stranger in a bar. But before we could finish what we started, I lost my nerve and fled.

Months later, I’m minding my own business at work one morning when a stranger lets himself into the empty brewery. Panicked, I call 911, and the cops show up to slap on the handcuffs.

In my defense, I have very good reasons to be afraid. Also in my defense, I’d never met my boss’s son.

Or so I’d thought


I don’t know what this chick has against me. First she ditches me, and now she wants to arrest me.

Livia is as frustrating as she is hot. But nobody else knows the brewery better than she does. Now we’re stuck together, sharing an office and a very small house as I run the brewery for six weeks for my cranky dad.

That’s just enough time to bring down her guard. Turns out we have a lot more in common than we thought, including a lot of smoking hot chemistry. Until Livia’s past catches up with her, and I finally figure out why she’s so jumpy. But I’ll stop at nothing to protect her, unless her ex finds her first

ARC received for an honest review
Sarina Bowen's World of True North is the gift that keeps on giving.  

First the Shipley family, then the Rossi family, and now the Giltmakers!
Nash is my kinda man! If I was living in forced proximity with him, I am sure I wouldn't be holding out as long as Livia hahah
Livia may not see herself this way, but she is strong, dealing with her baggage would bring a lesser woman to her knees.
You need to read it  yourself to get the whole vibe with them though.
This was a pretty cruisy read for me, really enjoyable, with some deeper, darker threads throughout. 
Do yourself a favour and read Golden Touch

Livia + Nash

Livia has been on the run from her horrible ex for almost a year. She's working for the Giltmaker's brewery and living in the apartment above the office. 
But now that the old boss is recovering from a heart attack his son is taking over for a few weeks.
The same guy she almost went home with from a bar last fall. And the same guy she almost had arrested this morning because she thought he was a bad guy her ex sent!


I just love Sarina's Vermont books. All that beer and cider and the pastries.
This book was all beer and family and criminal exes.
Nash is so adorable and Livia is so skittish and scared. And to get to our happily ever after we first have to survive Livia's ex and we have to make Nash's dad a bit less grumpy so that Nash wants to stay and work for the family beer business forever!
And we love to read all about that!

Great romance! It was funny and sweet and sexy and vermonty and beery!

GOLDEN TOUCH was such a sweet + funny + sparky + sexy + beery + exciting Vermonty Love Story! Run to your nearest bookdealer for your own Nash - this one is MINE!
