One taste will never
be enough…
You learn a lot about people pouring their drinks and London is what I would
consider a regular.

Like clockwork, she’s been coming into my bar twice a week for the last year.

Besides her name, I’ve learned that she’s witty, beautiful, and
unfortunately… taken.

She’s in a relationship with a guy that I’m pretty sure doesn’t deserve her.

Respecting that is the only thing stopping me from figuring out the things I
really want to know.

Things like, what her body feels like against mine, or how she tastes on my

I wasn’t just looking for a one-night stand, not with a girl like her.

But next thing you know, the ex is back. He’s in my bar, sitting next to her.

We try to act like there isn’t a connection between us.

**My Review**

Welcome to my stop on the sale blitz tour for Isabel Lucero’s On the Rocks. This first title in the Kingston Brother series is about Royce Kingston, owner of Kingston Tavern, and one of his regular customers, London. Royce finds London beautiful and adores everything about her. The problem, however, is that she has a boyfriend. Boyfriend or not, London can’t deny how attracted she is to Royce but refuses to act on that attraction while she is with someone else. But once things sizzle out with her boyfriend and she tells Royce that she is single, everything changes. 

I really enjoyed this book and it definitely has me interested in the rest of the series. It was an easy read filled with lots of flirty banter, several funny moments, and amazing chemistry between London at Royce. I was worried for a while because I thought cheating might be involved (which isn’t my favorite), however, this is a no-cheating, slow-burn romance that has a sweet and happy ending. 

Royce is a main character that you will completely fall for! While I was frustrated with London from time to time, I couldn’t help but love her character also. Most of the story takes place in Royce’s bar and although the conversations were interesting and there was some conflict here and there, the plot isn’t complex. I won’t say I got bored by any means, but there were times I wished there was a bit more substance. 

Isabel Lucero is a new author to me, but I certainly plan on reading more from her in the future, specifically the follow-up novels in this series!

I part my lips, and don’t miss the flash of desire in his
eyes as he watches me. He raises the bottle and pours the liquid into my mouth,
then I press my lips together and drink it down. Royce watches me with
lust-filled eyes and brings his thumb to wipe some of the drink from my chin.
“I’ve never been more jealous of alcohol.”
“What do you mean?” I ask, my voice soft.
“To be in your warm mouth is all I can think
I look up at him with hooded eyes. His presence and words
mixed with the liquor have filled me with warmth and pleasure.
“Mm,” he murmurs.
