Feeling discontent in the big city and hoping to find what’s missing in her life, MacIntosh Layne decides to go back to her roots. Ready for a refresh, she heads home to her family’s orchard in Tennessee for the summer. What she doesn’t count on rediscovering is her attraction to her brother’s charming best friend, Lawson Westbrook. The main star in her dreams growing up, he’s the perfect blend of Southern gentleman and sex in a flannel—rugged, successful, and more handsome than ever.


Lawson can’t believe Mac Layne is all grown up. No longer the gangly teen who went away to college, she’s all woman now and he’s eager to get reacquainted on a carnal level. As they continue to cross paths and their mutual attraction intensifies, he makes an enticing proposal.  

A Choice Must be Made  

Will Mac give in to the sinful temptation of the temporary arrangement Law is offering? Or will they find something sweeter than the cider they’ve been brewing together?

Sin and Cider



the lust from my mind, I decide to turn my focus to the inside of the barn now

that I’ve finished the thankless task of clearing out weeds. I had pulled out

some of the rubbish inside already but still have a lot of work to do. I pull

one of the doors to the side, the gentle creaking sound washing over me in a

wave of nostalgia. I make my way inside and step over dried leaves and debris,

each step kicking up a layer of dust. I look ahead and broken slats of wood are

on the ground; those must be part of the original roof that was destroyed. I

survey the space and take in the old tanks where we used to make cider and the

empty jugs, some whole and some broken, lining the walls on shelves covered in

cobwebs. When I was a kid this barn was spotless and welcoming, the perfect

place to make cider and welcome visitors. Now it looks like an old photograph

and not the treasured memory it really is. I take a deep breath and the smells

of dust and mold fill my nose instead of crisp apples and warm spices. It’s in

this moment I make a promise to myself: I’m going to restore this barn to its

former glory.



pick my way across the worn and dirty hardwood and undo the latch on one of the

windows. As soon as it swings open the sweet smell of flowers permeates the air

and rays of sunshine filter in, the shafts of light instantly brightening up

the room. I open the window on the other side and feel excited about the task

at hand. This barn is a dirty penny and just needs to shine again.

Wow, oh, WOW. I fell in love with this book in a heartbeat. It honestly did not take me long to adore these characters, fall head-over-heels for Lawson, and completely feel the pain of Mac the moment she realized he never thought of her more than a sister.


I don’t read a lot of contemporary romance novels, in fact, I typically steer more towards fantasy novels. But this is one book I could not put down.

Lawson is Mac’s brother’s best friend. And she has had a crush on him for ages.

After her high school graduation dinner party, she overhears Lawson admit he will never see Mac as anything other than his kid sister. And holy hell did that break my heart. Learning that someone you have been interested in for a long time essentially wants nothing more with them is a real heart-breaker. It was decided then that Mac would leave for Chicago to pursue her digital design career.

And that is exactly what she does. Until things don’t pan out exactly how she wished they would. Mac soon finds herself back home in her little country town for a much needed soul-searching retreat.

What she hadn’t anticipated was seeing Lawson again. Or the fact that he now has his sights set on the beautiful woman she became.

One of my favorite things, aside from Langley trying to push Lawson and Mac together, had to have been the intense attraction between Lawson and Mac nearly every time they were together. You could just feel the sexual tension steaming right off the page. Damn Lawson and his Southern charm. I don’t blame Mac at all. I would have fallen in love with him, too. Plus he’s always calling her “darlin’.” Swoon much?

I won’t spoil it any further. You guys need to buy this.

This debut novel is a real eye-catcher, showing everyone about growing up and love. Come fall in love with the beautiful Southern charm of this romance novel. I certainly did. And if I could get this as a paperback, man-oh-man, I surely would in a heartbeat. I was also reminded several times of Sookie from True Blood. She is such a cutie-pie.

I was given a copy of this stunning book in exchange for an honest review. The fact that I was given a copy is not a sway in my writing this review.
