Synopsis:  Set deep in the heart of Texas, bestselling author Kimberly Raye's sizzling new series proves that men, women, and moonshine make one dangerous combination…
The most infamous moonshiners in Lone Star history, the Tuckers and the Sawyers have been feuding for over a hundred years. Sure, the days of buckshot and bloodshed are long gone, but it's not over yet. To save the family business, Callie Tucker has to find the recipe for the legendary Texas Thunder moonshine. But first she'll need to make a devil's bargain--with a red-hot hellraiser named Brett Sawyer.
A Sawyer through and through, Brett was raised to never trust a Tucker--especially one as pretty as Callie. But desperate times call for desperate measures. With his ranch going bankrupt, Brett agrees to help Callie find the recipe, sell the rights, and split the profits. Of course, it won't be easy for these two enemies to work together. But it's even harder to ignore the sparks of attraction--when just one kiss delivers a kick stronger than any swig of moonshine…

My Thoughts:  I liked this book. It was a fun, sassy romance book. The Tuckers and Sawyers used to have the best moonshine in all of Texas, till one day there was a feud so big, that the only option was to dissolve the business and friendship. With the two men not being friends anymore, the only logical solution was to divide the Texas Thunder moonshine in half, that way neither of them could make a profit on it.

Callie Tucker has sacrificed her dreams to take care of her two sisters and her Grandpa. Callie's Grandpa was a mean old man with a gambling problem, who gambled away the money Callie gave him to pay the taxes on their home. After her Grandpa dies in a fire, the bank decides to foreclose on the ranch unless the money can be paid. After running into a business man who was in talks with Callie's Grandpa to get the recipe for Texas Thunder, Callie sees that as her way out of debt. The only issue is that she'll have to deal with the boy she once loved to get the whole recipe.

Brett Sawyer is back home again after being on the Pro-Rodeo circuit. His Pappy has alzheimers and the ranch is in trouble. Having no other option but to work with the one girl who hes always wanted, Brett decides to look for the other half of the moonshine recipe with Callie.

These two had great chemistry and were really perfect together, after they both decided they can't always run away from their problems. that is. This is an awesome start to what will be an amazing series.
