The last person she wants might be the second chance she needs.


Adalia Buchanan broke up with art, but it won’t break up with her. So she paints in secret, then destroys her work. Her mentor stole her art months ago, and she’ll never share her work again.

After he sold his brewery, Finn Hamilton’s life was supposed to be on an upward trajectory. Instead, he’s lost his way.

This book gave me all of the emotions!! It was such a delight to dive back into the Asheville Brewery series. I loved seeing how Adalia and Finn’s characters evolved throughout the book. I had a love/hate relationship with Finn. But he grew on me. Adalia is one tough cookie! I absolutely love her spirit. Finn, I learned that man is nuttier than a snickers bar. 😂
I enjoyed learning about the bro club too and their taco tuesday meetups. It was great seeing Jezebel in this installment. She’s a hoot

Adalia's story pulled your heartstrings. She is so lost at the beginning. I was glad her story moved along the way it did. She needed to find happiness outside her family.

Finn, I didn't want to like him. He just seemed all wrong in the 1st book. He thought of himself only and didn't care what happen to others. He has some struggles when the book first started but, he grows on you by the end.

Both together ..... Is the best thing that could have happened to both of them. They both have things th

I love how an author (or two in this case) can create a character that’s not popular in one book, and turn him around to be the hero in another. That’s how I felt with Finn. I wasn’t fussed on him in book #1, and I feel we weren’t supposed to be but once we got his full story and personality, he was certainly a good suitor for Adalia. Towards the end of the last book, we got a small indication of Addy’s background and I was sad for her in being misled and used by her ex boyfriend. He really was ...more

While this book is written in third person and sometimes it’s harder to connect with the characters, I still enjoyed Finn and Adalia’s story. I think it’s best described as sweet.

When we met Finn in the previous book, I wasn’t so sure I liked him because of his actions. But this book redeems his actions and then some. He truly gets Adalia and sees her deeper than just what’s on the surface.

While we know why Adalia moved to Asheville from prior, we get a more in depth reasoning and understandin

What an absolutely adorable read and a great addition to the Asheville Brewing series! I really enjoyed Adalia in the first book and was looking forward to learning more about her past. We got to know her so well in her book! She’s sassy and blunt, which I so appreciate. Finn also pleasantly surprised me as well! I basically had written him off after the first book and thought he was a total jerk. I had no idea how this book was going to go because of that, but I’m happy to report he didn’t disa ...more

What an addictive read! I absolutely love coming back to the Buchanan Siblings and Asheville Brewery. You can’t find more interesting and fun characters anywhere else. Definite must read!

Adalia is something else, she is funny and completely blunt and loves to put someone in their place. She struggles from being burned by her ex-boyfriend and tries to find her place at the brewery and life in general.
Finn feels alienated from the town he loves so when it comes to Adalia, they definitely need eac

The first book was good but this one is GREAT!! I so needed this story right now! The romance of Addy and Finn is so sweet and filled with such great friendship! Yes, they are romantically involved but the writing is more about the friendship, relationship, trust, laughter etc than it is about sex. I love both of these characters and I cracked up because I’m a Sagittarius and my husband is a Gemini- just like these two! My husband and I also play the same people watching game. Dottie keeps every ...more

I loved Addy & Finn' story. I enjoyed this book even more than the first in the series. It was fun as well as heartwarming. I loved that as they learned about each other they also learned about themselves as individuals. The pacing of their journey was perfect. The setting as well as all the supporting characters help make this a truly enjoyable read. I am looking forward to reading the next Asheville Brewing love story.
