Synopsis from Goodreads
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kendall Ryan comes a new story in her Whiskey Kisses series…
Everything’s bigger in Texas.
And that includes Duke Wilder’s sexual appetite.
Together with his twin brother, he runs a whiskey distillery, and when their business takes off—suddenly he’s got it all. Success. Money. Family. But he doesn’t have a woman to share it with.
When Valentina storms into his life, her presence is only supposed to be temporary. She’s a feisty attorney hired to help clean up his company’s recent legal mess. He never counted on her being the one to turn his whole world upside down.
After spending most of his life living in the shadow of his brother, Duke has something to prove, and he’s not about to let this distraction get in the way of his plans, no matter how hot things get.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
Do you ever have that feeling that you know the characters from somewhere and you can even picture the events of their story in your mind but for the life of you, you just can’t remember what the book was called? Well, that happened to me when I started Hunky Heartbreaker. I knew I had encountered the twins Luke and Duke before, along with Charlotte and Valentina, but I just couldn’t remember where from, it nearly drove me mad. Social media to the rescue with Sexy Stranger – breathes a sigh of relief at finally putting the puzzle pieces together.
Anywho, Duke takes over from his brother at the helm of this story, along with Valentina, who just happens to be Charlotte’s best friend. On the surface, Duke and Valentina appear complete opposites, a small-town boy and a big city girl. Casual versus designer, winemaker versus a lawyer. You get the picture. However, they quite simply click, and on a level neither was expecting apart from the dynamic chemistry they have between them.
Both Duke and Valentina had a clear plan for their future and it did not entail settling down. Yet, the connection between them cannot be denied, flipping their worlds upside down and inside out.
Obviously, the story is fast-paced as it is a novella. Despite this Hunky Heartbreaker is well-balanced and believable without the need for theatrics or drama-llama. Duke and Valentina belong together, they accept it as a natural turning point in their lives moving onto a new adventure together 💝
