Kelsey McDade realizes that her love life is one and done. Her last--and only--relationship left her broken and afraid and more than ready to be alone for the long haul. But sexy-charming vineyard manager Luke Westcott pushes all of her buttons in the right way and makes her wonder if she ought to try again.

In nearly twenty-eight years, Luke's most successful romance has been with the outdoors. Currently single, he's happy to pour all of his energy into his new winery until Kelsey provokes feelings he didn't know he was capable of. He can envision their future together--if she'll let down her guard.

When the ghost of Kelsey's past causes her to slam on the brakes, Luke is ready to fight for her, even if it means sacrificing himself in the process. Convinced she's only made wrong choices in the past, Kelsey must decide if Luke--and their love--is worth the greatest risk of all.

So Right by Darcy Burke Series: Ribbon Ridge: Love on the Vine #2 3 Stars- This was my first book by Darcy Burke. It had some good chemistry between Luke and Kelsey. I enjoyed the secondary characters as well, however, we never got to find out what happened in the teeny added on subplot of what Kelsey and her friend's are researching. Perhaps that carries on through to book 3. At times, I did find Kelsey to be very harsh with her mixed signals to Luke. I understand she's trying to figure herself out, but it was very hot and cold. A few times I thought to myself ..Poor Luke. On the plus side he is a nice and patient guy, which is just the match to help Kelsey learn to trust again, however long that will take. Overall, I enjoyed the story and I would read another by her. * I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review * ~Paragraphs and Petticoats~

So Right’s another book in Darcy Burke’s Ribbon Ridge series. If you haven’t read the series yet, it’s worth checking out but you do not need to read it to enjoy this book. I love the series because Ms. Burke has built up Ribbon Ridge so that as a reader you just want to visit or live there. (Yes, yes, I know it’s fictional). Our heroine, Kelsey’s the new librarian in town, and she volunteers a shift at the local vineyard, where our hero, Luke, is the manager. They’re both introverts, which they acknowledge from the start. I liked that they acknowledged that. I’m not an introvert, but I know that introversion v. extroversion adds an interesting layer to a developing relationship. The attraction between them isn’t quite instant, but it builds quickly. Yet, Kelsey holds back. I don’t think I’m spoiling anything by revealing her last relationship was abusive, which has made her reticent to date again. So they try the friendship route, slowly getting to know each other and building the trust needed for a more romantic relationship. That slow journey makes for a wonderful read. As a bonus for those of you who know what the Bechdel test, every book I’ve read in the series passes it, including this one. (The Bechdel Test, named after writer Allison Bechdel, requires that there are two female characters, who talk to each other, and it’s about something other than a man.) As noted, you don’t need to read the series in order. If you do, however, you see the female friendships unfold as they work together to resolve a mystery regarding one of the original settlers of the area. That layer of female friendship adds a wonderful touch to these tales. Plus, there’s also a lovely side story about her grandmother that makes things more interesting as well. So, if you like multi-layered romance, with strong family relations and a touch of female friendship focusing on a group of family and friends that make wine and beer, read this book, and this series. You’ll enjoy it. I received an ARC of this book.

I loved Luke and Kelsey! Both are workaholics, but they find themselves making time for each other. Kelsey's past makes her shy away from relationships, but I loved that Luke was patient with her and was willing to settle for friendship if that was all that Kelsey could offer. Luckily for both of them, she couldn't resist him. Fun, sweet and sexy times make this a good read. Fans of the Ribbon Ridge series will enjoy this spin-off series as well. 4.5 stars I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

So Right is the second book in Darcy Burke's Love on the Vine series! Wow...I loved Luke and Kelsey's love story! Luke Westcott has spent the last few years getting the vineyard that he, his brothers and his best friend own up and running and realizes that he is lonely, but he doesn't want a long term relationship until he starts spending more time with Kelsey. Kelsey McDade pretty much keeps to herself except for her three best friends. She works at the local brew pub and the library and enjoys both. She doesn't really have time for a relationship or wants one, but Luke is nice, attractive and fun to be around. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more books in this series. I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

I was given an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. This was the first book for me by this author , and it is a part of a series, I believe the 2nd book, but can most definitely be read as a stand alone. It was a great read, touching thoughtfully and sensitively on the damages caused by domestic abuse . Glimpses of the damage not seen. Being an introvert myself, I also appreciated the "issues" of being in a committed relationship that were dealt with here too. This book had lots of feeling, without being heavy and was again a very enjoyable book, I will definitely be seeking out more books from this author .

Darcy Burke always delivers with her signature style of warmth, family, love, and touch of 'what's going to happen?!?' mixed in. Which is why I always, ALWAYS, read whatever she pens. This story of Kelsey and Luke was so sweet. Both are introverts, and one carries the very real scars of a past romance to prove that love isn't always what it seems. Watching these two very slowly open up to each other was so heart warming. Also loved the side story of George and Ruby, along with the added tidbit about the BNR. Can't wait to see what's next! Keep writing Darcy... we're waiting!!

So Right I can't say enough about how much I enjoy this series. The way the characters and their environments are brought to life feels so realistic that you want to live there. This story is beautifully written with great attention to detail. Luke and Kelsey are adorable Luke is fully dedicated to his job until beautiful Kelsey comes along. He can't get her out of his mind but she is skittish. Due to her past relationship she is cautious and reluctant to get into a new relationship. Luke does not give up easily though and is hoping his patience will win her over.

I am thoroughly enjoying this series! Luke and Kelsey are a slow burn who just work. Kelsey has many issues she is working though and Luke is a loner. They are perfect together and yet still need to find their way. There are lots of twists and turns and lots of learning on both sides that keeps this moving along and so heart twistingly lovely. I really recommend this one. If you haven't read the first one in the series, that is okay you won't be lost but I recommend that one too. **Received an ARC copy for review**

Introverts unite! My unrelenting love for Darcy Burke and her Ribbon Ridge characters continues with So Right's Kelsey and Luke. This is the second book in the Love on the Vine spinoff series about the Westcott brothers. It can be read as a stand alone (but I like to read them in order, it's a quirk). Luke Westcott is a workaholic winery owner who's in business with his brothers and a friend. Kelsey McDade is the sweet town librarian who on the surface looks to not have much in common with outdoorsy Luke. But after a short but interesting conversation among the grapevines, these two introverted people begin to open up to each other and developed a friendship. I love that they start as friends first...I think the best and most realistic pairings do...and that they eased their way into more. I was slightly annoyed with Kelsey's push/pull, but understanding of why she was like that. Witty dialogue and interesting characters are the hallmark of all Darcy Burke books and this one is no exception. Ribbon Ridge is a great place to visit, I hope you'll enjoy your stay!

So Right by Darcy Burke......Another fantastic story that is perfectly written Darcy Burke style. This will having flipping pages and wanting more, I am so excited for the next book. I enjoyed watching the story be told for Kelsey and Luke. Darcy Burke is one of my all time favorite author with her storytelling ability. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book from publisher via NetGalley.

4.5 Stars 'So Right' by Darcy Burke is book Two in the "Ribbon Ridge: Love on the Vine" series. This is the story of Kelsey and Luke. I have not yet read the previous boo so for me this was a standalone book. Kelsey is really just seems to be starting over after having a very bad experience with a past boyfriend. Kelsey is working at a Library and working part time at a bar. Her good friend has been taking her to a Winery where her boyfriend helps to run. There she meets Luke who is eye catching but with her past she just plans to only be friends. Luke who is single and hasn't meet a women who understand his working habits nor his desire for only time. But with Kelsey she seems to understand him and is easy on the eyes. But Kelsey has her past to deal with before things can go forward completely for them. This was a great emotional love story as two 'friends' slowly move forward toward more. "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

3.75 stars—SO RIGHT is the second installment in Darcy Burke’s contemporary, adult LOVE ON THE VINE romance series focusing on the Westcott brothers of Ribbon Ridge. This is vintner and winery co-owner Luke Westcott, and librarian/bar waitress Kelsey McDade’s story line. LOVE ON THE VINE is a spin off from Burke’s Ribbon Ridge series. We were first introduced to Luke and his brothers (Cameron and Jamie) in You’re Still the One (Ribbon Ridge #6). You do not have to read the original series to follow the premise of SO RIGHT but I recommend reading You’re Still the One for some backstory about the brothers and their new winery business. Told from dual third person perspectives (Luke and Kelsey) SO RIGHT follows the building relationship between vintner Luke Westcott, and librarian Kelsey McDade- a relationship that struggles with demons from the past. Kelsey McDade is a broken woman whose past controls the present, and with it, Kelsey’s inability to move forward in life. A self-proclaimed workaholic, Kelsey’s lifestyle leaves no time for rest or relaxation but winery owner Luke Westcott slowly begins to worm his way into our heroine’s heart. What ensues is the building but struggling relationship between Kelsey and Luke, and the continuing research into the historical significance of Ribbon Ridge. Both Kelsey and Luke are workaholics; individuals who prefer to be left alone but the loneliness comes with too many ghosts and demons in the dark. Kelsey’s one and only relationship left our heroine broken and destroyed; Luke’s past relationship fizzled out but comes looking for another chance. The relationship between Luke and Kelsey is fraught the back and forth of one woman’s reluctance to give love a second chance. Frustrating in its presentation Kelsey’s ‘yes, no, maybe’ ongoing indecisiveness, although understandable under the circumstances, made for some discouraging reading and I had a difficult time accepting the heroine as a love interest for Luke. The $ex scenes are intimate and romantic without the use of over the top sexually graphic language and test. There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including Luke’s brothers Jamie, and Cameron and his wife Brooke (So Good #1), as well as a large number of the Archer clan from the original Ribbon Ridge Series. Arch and Vine bar tender George Wilson, a regular in both of the series, finds love with the introduction of Kelsey’s grandma Ruby Atwood. SO RIGHT is a sweet romance with a little bit of spice, angst, and romance. The premise is engaging and heartwarming; the romance is emotional; the characters are spirited and passionate although Kelsey’s flip-flopping was annoying-sometimes you gotta pull up your big girl panties and take a chance. SO RIGHT will captivate your imagination.

4 1/2 STARS! A wounded soul and a loner ... end up being a match made in heaven! I just love Darcy Burke's Ribbon Ridge novels and adding the Westcott's into the mix with the Love On The Vine series is a lot of fun to read! Vineyard manager Luke Westcott has spent most of his life alone and enjoying the great outdoors. Although he loves his family dearly, he's just happiest with his solitude. Working with his brothers and friend to run this winery has been a great venture so far, and he's looking forward to nurturing the vines for years to come. What he doesn't need is a woman ... no matter how much his mom nags. Librarian Kelsey McDade has come to love Ribbon Ridge and the friends she has made over the couple of years she's been settled here, but she still keeps a lot of herself reigned in and private. No one knows the torture she went through with her ex-boyfriend, and she likes it that way. She doesn't want anyone to know how broken she really is. When Luke and Kelsey find themselves innocently flirting with each other every time they cross paths, it's a surprise. Neither of them want a relationship ... but can they ignore the draw they have towards each other? Will she be able to share her secrets with him? And can she ever truly trust a man again?

I have enjoyed the other books by Darcy that I've read, so I usually watch for her name when it's time to request books. Kelsey has been one of my favorite parts of this series, so I was thrilled to see that she was getting her own story. And her and Luke are adorable. He's a genuinely good person, and their chemistry is palpable. My main complaint is using an abusive relationship as a plot point. Maybe it's because I've been reading a lot of romance as my sorbet, but it seems to be a popular choice for the female MC to have abuse as her back story. And in this one, Kelsey shares that she's been hit. A lot. Thankfully, things were addressed and as always there's a perfect HEA and a great epilogue. I can't wait to see what Jamie's story brings. **Huge thanks to Darcy Burke and NetGalley for providing the arc free of charge**

Loved this story. This series is set in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and the author does an amazing job of painting a wonderful picture of the area with her words. The slow build romance between Luke and Kelsey was fantastic to watch unfold. Kelsey has had a troubled past and is quite reluctant to enter into another relationship. Luke isn't really a relationship guy himself and devotes all his time and energy to his winery. That is until Kelsey comes along. There is a bit of back and forth in this one which normally drives me a little crazy but with Kelsey's background you can understand it. Thankfully it wasn't over done. I definitely recommend this one to everyone.

Darcy Burke has wrote the perfect trifecta; romance, wine, and librarians. I felt as if Burke looked into my mind and knew this book would be a something I would really enjoy, and I did! So Right is the second book in the Love on the Vine series, which is a spin off of the Ribbon Ridge series. If you haven’t read the Ribbon Ridge series, or the first book, So Good, in the Love on the Vine series, I highly recommend you do. I’ve enjoyed all of them, and Burke did a wonderful job writing characters that instantly felt like friends. The town of Ribbon Ridge is someplace I want to live. Besides having so many nice people, the town seems adorable. After spending a day in town going to various shops including the Knitty Gritty (a knitting store with knick knacks) and a Slice of Pi (a pizza restaurant), the winery would be a perfect place to end the day…. Although in this book, the three Westcott brothers, along with one of the Archers, are still working on getting it ready for opening day. Okay, enough about the amazing characters and the picture perfect town. In So Right, Burke went a little darker than the other books. Kelsey had been in an abusive relationship, and this has her keeping a distance from Luke, even though she is really attracted to him. Luke, who is a workaholic, is attracted to Kelsey as well, but with the mixed signals Kelsey is sending him, Luke thinks it may just be easier to keep throwing himself into the work that needs to be done at the winery. Besides Kelsey’s abusive relationship, the end of the book is where the book goes a bit darker. I would love to see Burke take a stab at writing a novel with more suspense, from the bit we see at the end, I think she would do an excellent job. With all of Burke’s Contemporary and Historical Romance novels, the sex scenes she writes are steamy, and sometimes very sweet, depending on the situation. If you’re looking for a great beach read or something to curl up with by the fire, this is a wonderful choice.

Kelsey needs to feel safe from the demons of her past. Luke wants her heart. Which is as elusive her ability to trust. Ms. Burke could not have picked a more beautiful setting for So Right to unfold. Picturesque wine country with the lush greenery, the fiery sunsets and the pungent aroma of the grapes on the vine. The imagery was like a vibrant image brought to life before my eyes. Surrounded by the beautiful atmosphere and the inviting arms of the Westcott family, will the fearful young woman succeed in regaining her independent spirit? Will love find it's way into her heart? With Darcy Burke at the helm anything is possible. There are so many irresistible characters, it's hard to keep track of them all. If the people don't pull you in, the emotions will.
