Review: Vines by Brynne Asher


Published Nov. 2016

Blurb: In the Virginia countryside outside of Washington, DC, Addy Wentworth was on a mission to make a new life for herself. When the opportunity arose, she settled in horse and wine country. Experiencing more than her fair share of tragedy and loss, she had plans for her future, one where failure wasn’t an option. And not just because people and cows were counting on her. She’d poured everything she had into her struggling vineyard, because once she’s in, she’s all in.


After giving himself wholly to the job for ten years, Crew Vega was done. He’d fulfilled his commitment, done his duty, gone above and beyond to settle the score. And the score was high. All he had to do was train his replacements and he’d be out for good.


He had a plan, one that didn’t include getting involved with his new neighbor, a woman who not only kept cows for pets, but treasured her employees as family, and understood him better than anyone ever had before. But when he learned a high level CIA target being investigated for treason was keeping tabs on her?


No, he never planned on that.


And like everything Crew Vega did in life, when he goes in, he’s all in.


Warning: I’m a devout member of the mama club and don’t want to get kicked out by angry mamas. If you aren’t eighteen, turn around, go drink your milk and eat your veggies, it’s good for your bones. And go to bed early, you’re still growing, your body needs sleep. And don’t text and drive. And be nice, sit with the kid who sits alone at lunch. And read a PG-13 book, it’s good for your brain. And go tell your mama you love her. Chop-chop, run along now. I’ll see you back when you’re eligible to vote. 


May be spoilers:

So, I really, really want to read Until the Tequila, but I haven’t read this series in so very long, so I have to reread each one to refresh myself.

Vines is the 1st in The Killers series. Has 29 chapters with an epilogue and is about Crew and Addy.

Crew has just bought property next to Addy so that he can train his replacements so he can retire.

Addy, she just wants to take care of her vineyard and animals.

Their first meet is very cute. I just love their bantering back and forth.

Neither are virgins, but their past isn’t brought up much.

I loved these 2 together. I love how honest they were. I never skimmed as it flowed great.

The only drama is from the past and the bad guys. No relationship drama, which I loved.

They are apart for a few weeks but just by distance. I really loved it. It’s long, but it doesn’t really seem that way as it kept my attention from the very first chapter. I loved it.

Great read. No cheating, no ow/om drama, no real separation-other than distance.

Epilogue is 2 years out. They are happily married and just giving birth to a baby girl. Great read, I thought. I gave it 5 stars.
