The Barista’s Beloved


It’s been months since whiskey maker Maeve Brennan has been on a date and she’s coming dangerously close to adopting twenty cats—until she crosses paths with River Hill’s newest barista. But Ben’s made it clear he only wants to be friends, so Maeve will definitely stop fantasizing about his forearms. Probably. Maybe.

Former lawyer Ben Worthington never thought he’d be slinging coffee, but there’s a lot about his life that doesn’t make sense. Like his attraction to the town’s beloved distiller. But since Maeve’s made it clear she doesn’t have time for romance, Ben will stop dreaming about her naked. Soon. Eventually. 

What Maeve and Ben can’t deny is how much they enjoy each other’s company, and as weeks turn into months, it becomes difficult to suppress their feelings. Until one rainy night changes everything … and now these two must decide if it’s worth risking their friendship for something that feels a lot like love.
