“I didn’t reply. I couldn’t. Seeing this man’s naked private parts had not rendered me speechless but watching him lick ice cream off his finger had.” – June Tucker

June Tucker doesn’t understand people. Numbers, data, and statistics? Those make sense. People? Not so much. In a town of Friday night fighters and moonshine-swilling line dancers, she’s the odd duck. And that suits her just fine. But her sister and friends are pairing off, and the change is unsettling. 

George “GT” Thompson was at the top of his game—one of the best receivers in football. But a career-ending injury sidelined him for good. Now he’s hoping to find relief in the healing waters of this tiny West Virginia town. And maybe an idea of what life has in store for him next.

He doesn’t expect the no-nonsense girl at the hot spring, telling him he’s not supposed to be there. And pointing out his sizeable… equipment.

George is fascinated by June, with her head full of statistics and blunt honesty. He appreciates her in a way most others don’t. And when the local missing persons case takes a shocking turn, he’s by Scooby-June’s side as she digs for the truth.

He was her fantasy receiver. Now he’s her real-life boyfriend. But as their relationship heats up, June worries she’s not capable of the kind of intimacy he needs. He’s convinced his campaign to get her out of her own head—to stop thinking and feel—will work. But his own crisis could drive them further apart.

Review

I have never made a secret of my love for all things Bootleg Springs.  I seriously love this series so much. With swoony romances, a quirky small town, amazing family and friendships, and a mystery that keeps me guessing, what’s not to love?  Absolutely nothing! Bourbon Bliss is the fourth book in the series, and it is absolutely amazing.

I have been intrigued by June since the beginning of the series.  She’s the quirky girl who is always on the outskirts. She is extremely literal and smart, but she is also funny and loyal to those she loves.  I have been looking forward to this book for so long, but I’ve also been a little nervous for it to get here. Sometimes authors take the quirky character and either show us that they really weren’t that quirky afterall (you know, the misunderstood character), or they go so overboard with the quirkiness that the character becomes unbelievable, a caricature.  However, my faith in Claire and Lucy told me to keep my hopes up. I’m so glad I did, because Claire has done our June Bug justice.

George and June are one of my favorite couples.  Watching their love grow was so sweet and HOT! George was completely adorable.  I mean who wouldn’t love a huge football player with a tiny bunny? I loved his patience and understanding.  He got June. He saw her for who she was and didn’t try to change her. He didn’t love her for her quirks or in spite of them.  He simply loved her. And I loved him for that! And June didn’t want George for his fame or status. She saw the man beneath it all.  The man most of the world wasn’t all that interested in. I loved watching her get flustered by him. Watching her wrap her head around her feelings was adorable and occasionally heartbreaking.  

Both of these characters had so much depth.  I felt like we were peeling back layer after layer to see what they were really made of throughout this story.  I think they were discovering who they were along the way too. I loved getting to see them in different lights.  I also loved getting to see the rest of the Bodines and Tuckers. These two families are so intertwined, and I love each and every one of them.

The Callie Kendall investigation continues, and this book took us on so many twists and turns.  I absolute love finding new clues and using them to update my theory on what happened. I can’t wait for new books and new evidence, but I’m also dreading finding out what happened because it will mean the end of Bootleg Springs.  I’m not ready to let them go! Luckily, we still have two more books to look forward to!

I could go on and on about everything I love in this book and this series, but really, you need to grab a copy and experience it for yourself.  The writing is fantastic, the characters are lovable, the town is quirky and fun, the romances will make you swoon, and the mystery will have you digging for clues!  While you could read this as a standalone, I highly recommend starting at the beginning and bingeing your way through. Once you start, you won’t be able to stop!

One of my absolute favorite parts of reading this series is discussing it and sharing theories with other readers. If you aren’t a member of Claire and Lucy’s Facebook groups, now is the perfect time to join! Come discuss your theories with us!
