As with each book I've read by this author in the Bourbon Springs series, I was drawn in from the onset, burying myself in this new Bourbonland series. Having Walker and CiCi (from Bourbon Springs) make an appearance here was a nice segue into a whole new cast of characters to fall in love with. Having been introduced to Nina during the Bourbon Springs' story Distiller's Choice was like welcoming her home the new series. Having gotten a glimpse of hers and Garner's story in the previous series left me anxiously waiting for more of them...Ms Bramseth did not disappoint! As expected for Ms Bramseth's books, the dialog was whip smart (the lessons on the law are never dry, but entertaining and enriching), easily carrying you through, with smattering humor to break up the seriousness of some of the story...just enough to provide the reader with a total experience. The dynamics of these characters was spot on, you could almost feel them, as if you were there experiencing their joys and sorrows. Now that my appetite for Bourbonland has been whet, I can't wait for Leo's story to continue...I just know he'll steal my heart as well. This book was provided by the author, I'm voluntarily providing my honest review.

Tragedy and heartbreak tore them apart and it's tragedy and heartbreak that brings them back together. Nina and Garner's second chance is fragile and often on shaky ground. It's going to take patience, tolerance and lots of love to persevere and find worth in a lasting relationship. This is a great first book in the new Bourbonland series. And I like the connections to the Bourbon Springs series.

Nina Cain had the perfect relationship with Garner Robson until a nasty break up after she lost their baby. It was even more devastating when Garner quickly married another woman that was pregnant. Garner was a new father when his wife tragically died. He attempts to pick up the pieces of his life but realizes that he is missing a major piece - Nina. Nina fights her attraction to Garner while handling the biggest case of her career against one of Garner's oldest and most powerful family friends. When their personal and professional worlds collide can Garner and Nina's renewed relationship survive? Sharp Practice is the first book in Jennifer Bramseth's new series. It is a spin-off from her Bourbon Springs series, so most of the characters are known. Its like slipping into your favorite pair of comfortable jeans. I liked Nina from previous books and was on the fence with Garner. Once I started reading, I couldn't help but fall for Garner. As Garner struggled to get the HEA he has longed for with Nina, I became more an more intrigued with several of the other characters in the book. I received an ARC from the author and publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Sharp Practice by Jennifer Bramseth Bourbanland #1 Garner Robson and Nina Cain were lovers for years until something tore their relationship apart. Nina’s dream of a happily ever after was further shattered when Garner married someone rather quickly and started a family with her. Dealing with being a widower and single parent Garner realizes that his love for Nina never died and he wants her back in his life but with all that happened between them is there any way for him to win her back? Add into this second-chance-at-love love story a huge legal case pitting Nina against the King of Sharp Practice, their families, potential characters for future books in the series, a mention or more of couples in the previous series, wonderful scenery, great food – often made with bourbon, and…more…and you have a story that is complex and a delicious read. What I liked: * Garner’s love for his daughter and his willingness to try again * Nina’s willingness to give Garner a second chance even though she had been hurt and still had hurt feelings * Ruby – a cute baby well loved by all * Supporting characters that I believe will have their own books: Corrie and Leo come to mind * The legal stuff including the trial and appointment of a new judge * The interactions between Nina and Garner – hot or not * Hoping for the HEA but not being 100% sure the two would make it. What I didn’t like? * Can’t think of anything ;) So, if you are looking for a legal romance that offers a heart wrenching second chance at love that is well written, perfectly plotted, and at times intense then I recommend this book to you. I always learn more about the law while enjoying the romances when reading this author’s novels. This book provided a couple that had to learn from mistakes, grow as individuals, determine who and what they wanted in their futures AND then find the strength to reach out and grab it. Thank you to the author for the ARC. This is my honest review. 5 Stars

Emotionally exhausted but I loved it! Nina and Garner have as much heartbreak and sadness in their history as they do happiness - the big question is 'is their love strong enough to overcome their past?' Each and every page of this book has you cheering Nina and Garner on, hoping for them, praying for them and joining them in every moment of happiness they find. And each time it goes wrong it has you cringing at their mistakes, crying for them and feeling every hour of pain with them. A fantastic book which leaves you emotionally drained and happily relieved by the end. I loved it! A fantastic start to this new series - I cannot wait for more Bourbanland. I was sent an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Nina and Garner’s story is captivating. There is so much going on between these two. Garner is now a single dad, raising Ruby. He has never stopped loving Nina and finally has a chance to approach her. The question is, will she give him a second chance? It’s obvious that Nina and Garner love each other so why aren’t they together? We finally get all the answers. Sadly, a lot of miscommunication is at the heart of it all. As these two lovers work to rebuild a relationship, they have to navigate all the hurt feelings that each caused. At the same time, Nina is in the middle of a huge disciplinary case which adds to her stress level. There are so many fun, sexy and sweet moments with a few missteps for both of them along the way. We get to visit with other characters from the Bourbon Springs series which adds a depth and richness to the stories that Jennifer Bramseth tells. At the same time, we are introduced to a wonderful new set of characters that has me intrigued for future books in the Bourbonland series to learn their stories.

I have had the pleasure of reading all of Ms Bramseth's books. Read all of the Boubon Springs books and now starting the the Bourbonland series. Honestly, I didn't know if she would be able to top the Boubon Springs series (they are a must read). And as usual Jennifer did not disappoint! The story line has been told before, past lovers getting a second chance, but the characters are so well written they seem to be real. The dynamics between Nina Cain and Garner are real life, then add Garner's baby, and there is so much strife, worry, politics (both literally and figuratively), and love. Boubonland series has a lot of the same characters from the Boubon Springs making appearances. The one thing I really liked about this book-Nina Cain prosecutes attorneys. Garner is a judge. There is a lot of legalese and could have the ability to be over the head of someone not in the legal field. Ms. Bramseth has the rare ability to write so one can navigate and understand what is going on in the legal world without getting lost and confused but at the same time manage to still be a love story. This is not only a must read book, but is also a must read series. I received an ARC of Sharp Practice and voluntarily offered my review.

With series like Bourbon Springs and Bourbonland, Jennifer Bramseth has made readers take notice. Sharp Practice is only the latest in a group of well written testaments of power, scandal and legacy. Garner and Nina are like a country love song without the melody. Young love turned into adult heartache, as they set out to fulfill their destinies. Betrayal tore them apart. Will tragedy, scandal and a high profile case give them a second chance? Sharp Practice is a dynamic start to what looks to be a sensational series.
