Welcome to the Land of Bourbon and Bluegrass...Welcome to Bourbon Springs, Kentucky...

How do they distill friendship into forever?

Elementary school teacher Pepper Montrose has only known hard luck for most of her life in little Bourbon Springs, Kentucky. Then her world is irrevocably changed by incredible good fortune—as well as an unexpectedly passionate encounter with Jon Buckler, her lifelong best friend and attorney for Old Garnet Distillery.

After Pepper makes a discovery that opens old wounds, she retreats to her new home, GarnetBrooke, the sprawling thoroughbred horse farm across the road from Old Garnet. Brokenhearted, she focuses her energy on building a retirement facility for thoroughbreds and devising plans for joint farm and distillery tours.

But Jon isn’t about to give up on a future with Pepper even as a new challenge in the form of a familiar face returns to Bourbon Springs. His instinct to protect her emerges—even though that same instinct has the power to tear them apart.

Distilled Heat is the sixth book in the Bourbon Springs Series of contemporary romances. The seventh book, Bottled Bluegrass, will be released in late spring 2016.

I enjoyed reading about Jon and Pepper, especially after some of the tidbits that were in the previous books. I love how they were long time friends who came to realize that they love each other. However like Pepper I was left wondering why it took so long! As week as why did they not realize their feelings after Jon's divorce. It seems they were really close during Jon's marriage that they would have noticed it. Still a fantastic read and I loved the history of the horses.

Pepper feels like a new friend. Her life hasn’t been easy but she’s always persevered and made the best of what has happened to her. Then her luck changes and she wins the lottery! This sets all kinds of wheels in motion as she can finally take care of her mother’s health needs and invest in the ranch she has always wanted to purchase, GarnetBrooke. When she enlists her best friend Jon’s help, he laughs believing she is lying. Boy, does he regret that move. Jon is shocked to realize Pepper really did win the lottery and now needs to eat crow to get back in her good graces. They have been best friends for years but recently, he started to see Pepper in a new light and doesn’t know what to do with these new feelings. Will Pepper accept his love? Or will she turn him away? Pepper’s father hurt her deeply so trust is hard for her to give, realizing Jon feels something more for her, well, can she allow herself to realize she is lovable? Will she open herself to love and maybe loss? Once again we get to spend time with the entire community of Bourbon Springs allowing us to interact with couples from the other books to see how their lives are moving forward and impacting this new story. I love this “family” of characters. Their lives feel real while I get sexy romances to devour!

Jon Buckler and Pepper Montrose, after many years as friends, find themselves finally at a place in their lives where friendship may move on to something more. Pepper carries baggage from the past and Jon has been busy dealing with his law practice but then…things change…at least for a while. They do not have smooth sailing with death, family, legal and other issues cropping up to be dealt with. Pepper’s redheaded temper, in my opinion, leads her into acting without thinking things through from time to time and I kept thinking, “Pepper, act instead or reacting.” It was fun seeing some of the characters from previous books in the series and also being introduced to characters that will show up in future books. This was a very enjoyable read and I look forward to learning more about whiskey, horses and perhaps music as the series moves forward. Thank you to the NetGalley and the author for the copy of this book to read and review.

Ms Bramseth's Bourbon Springs series just keeps getting better with each book released. Jon and Pepper's story really touched something within my heart that is hard to explain. I'm sure it is not only that their love story is so moving, but the retired Thoroughbred farm topic set a whole different tone to this story. I sensed this book was more about giving of one's self then any of the others. I was so moved by the retired Thoroughbred story, that I changed my Shop at Amazon designation to Old Friends, a Thoroughbred Retirement Farm in Lexington, KY. Jon and Pepper's story was just so right, I can't think of a better word. Seeing them come together even over mistakes made, really pulled at my heartstrings. And how Jon always kept his promises to Pepper even to the most important one he made, just made him one of the best book boyfriends ever! This book was provided by the Author for my honest review.

I got this book as an ARC reader and I can't tell you how EXTREMELY pleased I am that I got to read it! I tried to drag it out but I couldn't put it down but I still finished it in 3 days! I don't want to spill the beans but I LOVED how the characters were developed. Their backstories helped to make them relatable...even their quirks. I also loved how we got to get follow-up info on the couples from the other books in this series. I can't wait to read the next one!

I hope this series doesn't end anytime soon. Jennifer Bramseth has cemented herself irrevocably in my favorite author collection. Her stories are such a joy to read that I am always looking ahead to what subject matter she will tackle next and what characters she will use. I received an ARC of Distilled Heat in exchange for an honest review. As always there is a history between the two main characters. Jon and Pepper have been the best of friends for years. As with every relationship there are issues with trust and emotional turmoil but it is so obvious that these two are meant to be. I am so thankful to NetGalley for introducing me to Jennifer Bramseth. She is an author that has a prolific understanding of what is appealing to her audience. I am glad she is finally being discovered by more than just Amazon readers.
