My life is over.

I swore I would never work at the whiskey distillery with my last name on it, that I would never be a part of my father’s legacy. But when I graduated with my art degree and realized there were no jobs, the devil appeared, and I sold my soul, agreeing to work in the family business if he’d give me the art studio I’d always dreamed of.

Neat was an intriguing story and I really liked the opposites-attract premise that it had. Logan and Mallory were so fun to read about and one of the big reasons I liked them so much was because they suited each other so well. Where Logan was organized and living life in black and white, Mallory was carefree and colorful. Seeing how well they came together had me devouring the book, especially when I was dying for them to give in to their chemistry.

Since he was 18, Logan Becker's dream is to become the chief tour guide at the "Scooter" whiskey distillery.
Logan has been working there for 8 years - just like his grandfather who helped Build the factory, like his father who died there under suspicious circumstances and like his brothers Noah and Mikey - to keep the legacy ... 💥
Logan is a perfect book boyfriend! A nerd who loves order, until a woman who is all color and mess enters his life... and changes everything! 🎉

Neat is everything a small town romance should be. I loved this book so much! There’s just something about these Becker brothers that is so appealing and irresistible. This time around it’s Logan Becker that utterly charmed me. Kandi Steiner wrote here an exquisite story where opposites attract and the pull of forbidden has never felt so good.

Logan is a nice nerdy guy, but he has this mistaken image as a bad boy across town. How they’re all so wrong! Seriously, t

Author: Kandi Steiner

If you don't know, I love Kandi Steiner's books. I am always excited to read her new releases.

Neat is a small town romance that has a Romeo & Juliet vibe to it. I love these tropes so I  enjoyed reading this book.

Let me just start of by saying that I love Logan! He is like my spirit twin! I found his obsessive organisational nature so calming. hahaha
Plus, This guy loves to read guys! Logan is also very hard working and I find that to be such an attractive

Shakespeare knew what he was doing when he presented to the world, Romeo and Juliet. He gave us the perfect love story with all of the challenges young love can have. What made it so perfect was this universal conflict of two families being arch enemies with their children falling for each other. Now in the original story, it was extremely tragic. But the idea of family conflicts with love was presented for others to understand and use for f

I've read most of Kandi's books but I must say- this is her most touching and most tender hearted story. Generally she has written, like most of the authors do, about heroines' POV in a romance, but here She gives us a peek into the heart of a man who goes through a gamut of emotions when he falls in love with his enemy's daughter.

I love when Kandi Steiner releases a new book because she always manages to write a story that resonates with her readers. Neat is one of those books. Kandi has not only written a gorgeous romance about two people who aren't supposed to be together even though they are clearly destined for one another, but she she was also written one that about a heroine any woman can relate to.

This modern day Romeo and Juliet story pulled me in and convinced me to believe in fairy tales again. Every part of this book was perfect, even parts that had me doubting a happy ever after.

Neat is the second book in the Becker brothers series. This one focuses on Logan. I have to say that I actually loved this one more than the first! Logan is the best character. He’s nerdy, sweet, driven, thoughtful and an all around nice guy. Logan has been working as the lead tour guide at the whiskey distillery. He is aggravated when Mallory, the owner’s daughter, comes back to work at her dad’s distillery, and he has to train her. Their families have quite a bit of history and a lot of real b ...more

Neat is all about the disparity between these two houses. A mysterious death and a partnership that became void upon a different death...all between these two families. It seems like Scooter whiskey isn't as Neat as they would like you to believe.

Logan Becker: Middle child, whiskey distillery tour guide, and hopelessly crushing on Mallory Scooter, daughter of the sworn enemy, all Scooters.
Mallory Scooter: Outspoken, vibrant, artistic, not your average Scooter.
What starts as a crash course on being the best distillery tour guide becomes a romantic, fast-paced novel with just the right amount of tragedy. Like Romeo and Juliet, the Becker and Scooter families have long feuded over the distillery and its history, and no amount of lo

Kandi Steiner is going to do me in with these Becker brothers and this is only the second book!!

Logan is the quiet, reserved brother and tends to have everything planned out. He's always had a crush on the one girl who he could never have, Mallory Scooter.

These two families have been at "war" for decades and it's due to the distillery that their ancestors started together. Other things happened over the years that have caused this war to stay strong and it's why aside from working together, anyt

Every single time I read a new Kandi Steiner book it becomes my favorite one....

For me personally, I need a book to have an well developed storyline, organic dialogue, and characters with depth. And without fail Kandi delivers on all 3.

NEAT’s storyline alone will keep you glued to your book, barely coming up for air because it is that good. You might even wonder how she came up with this stuff, I know I did!

The dialogue in this book is organic, constantly shifting your emotions from one extreme

Logan and Marley are opposites in so many ways...she's a mess and he's neat and organized, she's creative and artistic while he's into history and facts, he's not afraid to show emotion while she can't remember that last time she cried. They are proof that opposites attract and once they do it's like trying to separate magnets...almost impossible. There's a problem here though because they are supposed to

This is a sweet, well-written story with a Romeo and Juliet vibe that captivated me from beginning to end.

Logan and Mallory are two completely opposite people and in theory could not be together because of the rivalry of years between their families. But love happens in the most unexpected places and that's what happened to these two characters.I thought the author did a good job of building the romance and found myself hoping that everything would end well in the end.

The Becker family has a long history with Scooter Whiskey Distillery because their grandfather helped his best friend start the distillery years ago. Sadly, there was nothing in writing protecting the Beckers' interest, and when the Scooter patriarch died, the gentlemen's agreement died with him. In spite of their father's suspicious death in a fire at the distillery, the Becker boys continue to work for the Scooters and uphold their father's legacy.

“Smooth and Neat, 5 stars”

Steiner killed it with Neat. Logan and Mallory were the perfect opposites attract. He’s all neat and organized where well..she’s an artist. You have the small-town vibe all throughout the story, add in a little Romeo and Juliet or maybe Hatfield’s and McCoy’s vibe between their families and it was perfection. I cannot wait to see what Steiner does for the rest of the Becker Brothers.
Logan has always silently had a thing for Mallory that he’s never
Oh, Kandi Steiner, what you do every time I read one of your books. I completely fall in love with it and want nothing to do with my own world. I get annoyed when anyone tries to talk to me while reading a book from you. You pull me so far into the world of Becker vs. Scooter that I have a hard time coming back into my reality. Boy, do I wish there was a Logan in my reality. He was so book worthy. He always knew the right things to say (even in the worst circumstances) and he was just perfect. M ...more
