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.

It can’t be that bad, I

    5 "Becker vs Scooter" Stars
    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

    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.

    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.

    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. Oh, and did I mention that the Beckers hold t ...more

    I finished Neat a couple of days ago and I have to say, I am loving these Becker brothers.

    The small town feel, close knit family, whiskey in the middle of it all, and some "bad" boys that have a reputation. These books are just some fun, feel good books with an underlying mystery that will come full circle, I'm sure. But we gotta wait for the answers.

    Neat is the 2nd book in the Becker Brothers Series. I fell in love with the Becker Family in On the Rocks and fell even hard after finishing Neat. Neat is the story of Logan Becker, and Mallory Scooter. If you read On the Rocks you'll know that the Beckers and the Scooters are rival families in the small town of Stratford, Tennessee. So, right from the start we know a relationship between a Becker and a Scooter is an absolute no go!

    After I read „On The Rocks“ I was so excited to read Logan‘s Story. I loved him from the start of the book. He is just the perfect guy. He‘s intelligent, neat and very very charming. He has a big sense for family and is great at what he does/loves.

    With Mallory I didn‘t have that smooth of a start. I didn‘t thibk she deserved a guy like Logan bht she proved me wring and showed me her great sides and that she deserves him. She‘s really passionate about art and I like that about her.

    Looove! I didn’t think I could love anyone more than Noah but Logan is just too swoon worthy! The quiet, secretly nerdy brother stole my heart. His family and Mallory’s family hate each other. So you’d think they’d hate one another as well. Think again! There are some questions in this series. Like the mystery surrounding Logan’s father’s death. There still no clear answer to that question. Kandi loves to keep us guessing lol. But I do love the Becker brothers and their love for each other and t ...more

    Neat combined just the right amount of family, mystery, flirty, and dirty to make this new Becker Brothers romance a total hit!!

    In a fiction world; Logan Becker is my spirit animal. He is addicted to lists, organization, highlighters, and the need for worthless knowledge which is all like foreplay crack to me. Although if I was being fair; it would also appear that I married my fictional spirit animal in Mallory Scooter. He's a procrastinator, messy, and has been reading the same book for the pa

    Neat by Kandi Steiner is a contemporary, forbidden workplace romance told in first person, dual POV. It is a standalone and the second book in the Becker brothers series (On the Rocks is the first). While each book is a complete story featuring a different Becker brother finding love, there's a mystery thread that runs through both and at this point remains unsolved. I'd recommend reading them all as I expect more pieces of the puzzle will come to light in upcoming books. I'm looking forward to ...more

    I was lucky enough to receive an ARC for this book from Kandi for review. This is the second book in the Becker Brothers series, a new quartet from Kandi set around the 4 Becker boys, and honestly, this is the one I looked forward to the most.

    Logan Becker has worked at the Scooter whiskey distillery with his brothers since he was 18-years old, working his way up the ranks until becoming one of the best tour guides the company has, almost 8-years later. The Beckers and the Scooters have a long-running rivalry—the Beckers played as big a part in the distillery’s creation as the Scooters, but only the Scooter name is sprawled on the building, and only they get any real say in the business. And after Logan’s father suspiciously died duri ...more
