It was just a bet . . . until feelings got involved.

This job sucks but someone’s got to do it. My readers expect me to chronicle my very real, very steamy encounters in my novels. I’d never want to disappoint my fans, but the creative well has run a bit dry. Burlington, Vermont, seems like a good place to fill it up. This town offers a tempting array of artists, crafts

I liked this book a lot, it made me laugh, it made me go awwww a lot and it made me a bit ragey at times too - all good things!

The narrative has an interesting premise, as it mixes both a fake relationship and a kind of opposites attract scenario with two men who are at odds from the start.

Throw in a bet you know is going to come back to bite someone on the proverbial later and things scoot along at a great pace.

Logan's character and backstory really made me laugh, it's not your typical book he

Logan + Brody
Logan is a pretty famous erotic author. He came all the way from England to Vermont to find some inspiration. Male and naked preferably.
Enter Brody. His ex left him at the altar and now he's sad and angry and broken. But he also needs to sell his beloved maple wine. And it's not going as good as it should.

As soon as those two meet at Vino & Veriatas ... Logan is super intrigued and he needs Brody to be his next book inspiration.

A Joyfully Jay review.

2.5 stars

Sometimes, you just know from the start that a book isn’t for you and this book and these characters were not for me. I didn’t care for Logan from page one. He is coming to Vermont from England to find writing inspiration. He’s cocky and sure of himself and completely certain that every man he meets will go to bed with him and never want to leave. Wherever Logan goes, everyone he encounters knows his name. Now, Logan is a gay erotica author and it was a stretch th

I really wanted to like this one... I really did. But I didn't.

I couldn't feel any connection between Logan and Brody. It took me a really long time to warm up to Logan. And when I finally did, it was way too late. Everything about this book felt... forced and a little bit off. The 75% fight happened more at the 85% mark and the getting back together was the very last chapter, leaving us without a lot of time seeing Logan and Brody happy together.

*** I received an eArc from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.***

This was another fun and exciting installment in the Vino and Veritas series. At first, I was apprehensive about the fake dating trope, which includes a bet, and I was pleasantly surprised. Both main characters are instantly drawn to one another against their better judgment, which is always a great foundation for any relationship.

This was a riveting story that I enjoyed how their relationship progressed and thei

How can a great Maple Wine not sell in Vermont ? Poor marketing...?
Brody, 28, grumpy local, had his ex,

Theo, leave him at the altar. He's running his grandfather's Sugarhouse/distillery, struggling to sell his tasty wine.
Logan, 42, British silver fox, writer,

has come to find new material for his new book. He's a one-night specialist, a fellow who picks up 3 guys within his first 24 hours.

Making his rounds Brody is finding his wine isn't selling. He meets the Brit, he's hot, but irritating.
[3.25] Everything was a bit on the OTT side, characters didn't quite read their age, some plot inconsistencies with lots of suspension of disbelief, a classic case of instalove AND YET-- surprisingly I had fun.

Not my fave kind of MC, so needless to say, it wasn't the best foot to start off on.

DNF @ 36% because I was hate reading from the first page.

I’ve never hated a mc from the very first page before but the author created such a gross, obnoxious, immature character in Logan that I instantly disliked him. I thought I’d stick it out a bit to see if he improved (he does not) but by then I’d met Brody, the other mc. Also, a totally unlikeable asshat. He’d been through a difficult time but he was rude & disrespectful to everyone. Including his mom. For no reason other than he was havin

Insatiable was a very good read for me, I didn't expect to like it so much but the characters and wording was catching and I got really involved into the story.

Logan Graves is an english erotic writer who decided to go to Vermont to find the inspiration for his next book. Brody Mercier produces a very good maple wine but he isn't the best at advertasing it.
They see each other for the first time at Vino and Veritas while Brody is promoting his maple wine with little success but he catches Logan'

I’ve mentioned in the past that I very rarely read blurbs as a means to deciding if I should read a book or not. I’m more of a fly by the seat of your pants kind of reader. Give me a cover that pops and you’ve pretty much won me over. There’s an exception to this almost 100% of the time and that’s with new-to-me-authors. There are way too many plots that can go awry in a flash and way too few hours in the day to read so you do the math LOL

Anywho, I read this blurb and yes, I cringed at the bet

A disappointing read. - 2*

I was looking forward to this book. Logan is unrepentant about his promiscuity. When he sees Brody at Vino & Veritas he decides that a shag is in order. When informed by the bartender (oz? - I forget) that Brody is unlikely to agree a bet is made. It is pretty tasteless and a ploy I dislike in general. The only mitigating for is the stakes are tame. Still at that point I was still enjoying the book. But after spending several more chapters with the unpleasant Brody I wa

Oy! Insatiable is not really the word I would use for our guy Logan.

I think the correct Aussie words for him would be root rat!

He didn't make the best first impression, and then the bet thing came into it, and I knew it would cause a lot of unnecessary drama.

However, Logan turned things around, and then I couldn't wait for he and Brody to get their HEA.

Oh Brody, how I adored you. I wanted to stab people wit my pen as I was reading - you know who you are, charact

Not sure how I managed to finish this but somehow I trudged through.

This was full of ridiculously cheesy language, absolutely terrible (and at times unrealistic sex scenes, good god when will authors stop writing anal sex scenes with giant cocks and no lube?), absolutely ridiculous caricature of the jealous ex character, the most overdone “bet” trope, and falling in love out of nowhere.

At first I thought it would be the start of a pretty decent enemies-to-lovers, as Brody’s reactions to Logan

Another fantastic book by Rhys, one of my favorite writers
I especially liked Brody, the grumpy maple wine-maker that changes the anti-hero Logan, a writer who writes about his sexual meetings with a writer’s block
The attraction was clear since the beginning but the it was credible the way they fall in love with each other as they worked together to help Brody's maple wine business flourish.
It’s a very funny book and I can«t read the other books from this series Vino & Veritas

Like Brody, I didn't really like Logan at first with his smirks and overconfidence. I actually liked seeing Brody take him down a peg or two and having Logan work for it.
I loved the grumpy/sunshine pairing, fake relationship (Theo is awful, like really horrible) and the way Logan really helped Brody.
Over the course of the book I grew to really like Logan and I loved him with Brody.
Christina Wade - BFD Book Blog
This was my first experience with this author but unfortunately, the book was not for me so it will probably be my only experience.

I did not care for either character. Brody’s defeatist, whiny attitude drove me nuts. Logan has an over-inflated ego yet felt his self-worth was based entirely on sex.

The dialog between them was amateurish and downright silly at times…especially from the festival until the end of the book. I almost jumped ship at 70% and again at 80% because if I thought the dialog

Overall Grade: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What do you get when you have a British silver fox with a need for hook-ups to inspire his writing and a younger, grumpy. jilted sugarmaker? Well, an INSATIABLE need for their happy ending.

Rhys Everly’s Insatiable situates itself fairly in the Vino & Veritas world, offering up a slice of it that we, the devoted readers of this world, have yet to read. Given that this series is set in Burlington, Vermont, maple anything is the currency of this area. Enter Brody, a jilted m

A generous 3 stars. Would have been a DNF except I like the series.

Written in dual first person POV. Fewer M/M sexy times than I was expecting given Logan’s profession. No real humor. Low angst/drama (no traumatic backstory for either character). HFN that was rushed and unsatisfying.

Not really spoilers but more explanations/notes for my review...

At almost halfway through, I still didn’t like either MC. Logan is just gross (not slut-shaming but his descriptions for things were so cavalier and de

This is the eleventh book in a series of stories written by a collection of talented authors and set in Sarina Bowen’s True North world. I am really enjoying the connections, and yet the variety of styles offered by the different writers. This one involves a somewhat jaded erotic author with a bad hook-up habit making a bet to capture the attention of a very solitary maple wine maker - it makes for some growing up on bot
Amy Dufera - Amy's MM Romance Reviews
Insatiable, Rhys Everly's contribution to the multi-author Vino & Veritas series, is definitely a fun read. The eleventh book in the series, each book is written to be a standalone.

This tale is a great mix of a bet, a fake relationship, and opposites attract.

Both men are interesting. Logan's an erotic romance author who lives for the hook ups.

Brody's sad and lonely since being hurt by his ex. But, with a bet, Logan starts to pursue the unavailable Brody.

A bet. A fake relationship. So many things that definitely screams disaster when it comes to our two heroes of this book. Logan is a writer who comes to Vermont to be inspired for his next book. Definitely a player, he has no problem finding a hook up. But when he comes across Brody, he has definitely met his match. Brody is still hurt after his fiancé left him at the altar a few months earlier. Grumpy is the definition of who Brody is and he does not want to put up with Logan. Yet a small bet a ...more

This is a very enjoyable, engaging read that covers a few tropes - age gap, bigger guy/smaller guy, sunshine/ grumpy guy and fake boyfriends.

Of the two main characters, my heart instantly went out to Brody and his recent troubles. It took a few pages for me to warm to Logan and his playboy antics but all was redeemed later.

Logan and Brody are both lovely characters, with all their faults, of course, far from perfect, but, in the end, perfect for each other, and willing to change and improve.

Oh my - Brody is the true star of this book. He’s a cranky curmudgeon and his self-talk is hilarious. Logan is a bit more typical with his smarm and smirk, which drives Brody up a wall. One of my favorites in this series.

Easy buy not cheap.
It did make me crave a well made Rusty Nail.
I feel like this was a record, I stopped reading this book on the first page. The MC managed to fuck the FIRST person he saw in Vermont, how does something like that even happen? Control your goddamned dick.
The Vino & Veritas series is great so far, but this book is just a big No for me.
