I am a huge fan of the office romance trope, so A REUNION OF RIVALS from new-to-me author Reese Ryan was right up my alley. This is a quick-paced read that truly captured my attention. The story flows effortlessly from beginning to end, and I loved getting to know the characters. This is the fourth book from THE BOURBON BROTHERS series and it can be enjoyed as a standalone.
The Abbot family and the Bazemore family have been the best of friends for many generations. About thirteen years ago, Max Abbot and Quinn Bazemore had a summer romance while Max was interning on the Bazemore’s farm. Although they were young, they fell madly in love. Unfortunately, Max abruptly ended their relationship when his internship came to a close. Quinn was devastated to say the very least.
Quinn is a public relations guru and Max is the VP of Marketing for his family’s successful distillery. After years of not seeing each other, they find themselves working together on a lucrative deal. Even though they both deny their feelings, the old spark is still alive and well. Over time, they evolve their work relationship into much more.
Quinn and Max are a hot couple, and the author does an excellent job of balancing their sexual tension with their sexy times. The supporting characters add a lot of personality to the plot, and I can’t wait to read their respective stories. The Abbot brothers and their sister Zora are a captivating bunch. Overall, a solid romance that nicely combines the love of family with the sexiness of romance.
