mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege—as well as a hard won division of class on their sprawling estate Easterly Upstairs a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste Downstairs the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade And never the twain shall meetFor Lizzie King Easterly’s head gardener crossing that divide nearly ruined her life Falling in love with Tulane the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty was nothing that she intended or wanted—and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right Now after two years of staying away Tulane is finally coming home again and he is bringing the past with him No one will be left unmarked not Tulane’s beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch a man with few morals fewer scruples and many many terrible secretsAs family tensions—professional and intimately private—ignite Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation and only the cunning will survive I won’t lie guys there are a lot of things going on in this bookI’ve come to realize that this is the kind of story you will love or hate It could be all full of clichés or it’ll be a brand new adventure for you I’m in the amazing side of things and I have only good stuff to say about this bookGosh I don’t even know where I should start After reading this book I was like “man I’m glad I’m not rich” because hell that was pretty messed up Totally dodged the bulletGet it LOL kay I suck at jokingThe story follows the children of this new generation of the Bradford family There are three men Edward Maxwell and Tulane and the woman Virginia Gin if you like They’re all messed up yeah But we don’t actually see Max in this book only flashbacksThe main thing here is that Lane wants to get his old love Lizzie King back but he also has to try to do things right and make amends but his family gets in between Well like his father and his businesses get in betweenI really have to say I was invested in the side characters rather than in our MCs but hey their storylines were very goodHere we have Edward right heir to the Bradford Empire yes We’re told shown this man was once full of life and he was smart as fuck and ruthless when it came to business but also gentle and good person We see glimpses of that but this Edward This is a very broken man a weak shadow of the person who used to be After the events of his kidnapping and torturing well how can you be whole The scars are not only on his body but he is a living reminder of what was done to his persona He’s become an addict an alcoholic a loner and a prostitute userHis character was so interesting I think he was the one I enjoyed reading the mostI liked every aspect of his personality I’m not saying that he was right about how he was dealing with his life but I can tell you I understand the whys I even liked that he had a crush Was he madly in love on Sutton Smythe heir to Sutton Destillery aka Bradford’s “enemy” I liked Sutton I truly did but she and Edward don’t work for me I rather they end up as friends but something tells me they’re endgame Would I be okay with that Yeah I guess Do I have another person in mind for our broken guy Hell yes Guys meet Shelby LandisShe’s the daughter of the man who got Edward back on tracks Jeb Landis told her daughter to go find Edward when he died Since Edward owed the man he got Shelby a job and a place to live while she works with his horsesI really loved her character even though there was little of her in the book “I’m not lookin’ for no handouts I need a place to stay and work to do I’m good with horses just like my father and bad with people— so you’re warned up front on that one I got no money but my back is strong and I’m not afraid of nothing When can I start” That’s how she was She was blunt and she didn’t give a shit whether she could hurt Edward’s feelings and she gained his and my respect I think that’s exactly what he needed after all this time No pity looks but someone who treated him like a regular alcoholic dude I’d like to read about her in the following book and I’d love for them to be together even though she’s 22 and he’s almost 40 or past 40 I don’t care really Or at least I want them to grow closer and closer because there’s some serious potential awesome friendship thereThose two were my favorites what can I sayNow back to our MCsI had a bit of a hard time liking Lane I mean he was a sweetheart yes He was sexy as fuck yes He had honor yes but I just don’t know We really didn’t hit it offHe used to be a bad boy two years before the events happening here and there was already a story created between him and Lizzie so maybe that’s why I couldn’t fall in love with them I’d say I know Lizzie better than I know Lane but still I was almost done with the book and I still couldn’t say I knew for sure who they were I’m not saying that I know Edward and Shelby and Sutton like the palm of my hand but I like them so that helpsLizzie is a really strong independent woman Don’t you think we say this a lot “she’s such a strong independent woman” like it’s a rarity in this world Why don’t we say “he’s such a strong independent man” I feel rather annoyed with this It’s not Ward’s fault but just the thing in general We have to educate ourselves and women that being strong capable and independent are not ultimate ualities to conuer and show off and to attract people but adjectives to describe us because that’s what we are not what we got to be who works for Lane’s family Now I don’t think I’d be working for the family of the man who left me to marry other woman I know I know what happened but she did not know because on top of that I’d be working for that woman too That’s self torture Lizzie She’s a really good person and she wants to finish the payments of her farm and all of that but I would have found another place to work Anyhow I liked the girl but that was it Y’all know honest to God pure of hearts characters and I don’t get along well so maybe that’s why she wasn’t my favorite And honestly I didn’t really care about her and Lane If the two of them had managed to make a good impression as a couple I’d have root for them but I felt like I was reading just part of their story and not the most interesting partWith that being said I still want to read about them because I want to give them another chance because of what happened with Chantal Lane’s wife ex wife well I couldn’t appreciate themNow the deal with Gin is a whole different thingShe’s the party girl The woman who makes terrible decisions and is often humiliated She’s also the manipulative kind of womanShe has no advance education and she lives off her family money Yep she’s the typical spoiled heirI have to say I somehow care about her It’s hard not to really I didn’t want to because I just hate this type of person but Gin isn’t cruel nor a despicable villain Her survival instincts are just strong enough to move mountains and that’s uhm something greatHer relationship with Samuel T is something I don’t think it’d work Ever They go back and forth with this sex fest they have and I could understand why they kept their relationship but I just think it’s a bit way too sick to me Granted they care about each other but they haven’t been adults in the situation They’re not teenagers any and the way they behave is just beyond stupid at timesIt was entertaining for sure but in the end it’s not healthy for anyone and now that Gin has made up her mind well she chose her well being firstLike I said it’s hard not to sympathize with her and I know everything will come back and bite her ass After much introspection she had come to acknowledge a fundamental truth about herself She couldn’t survive in any other world And Richard could give her this lifestyle she needed— even as her family might no longer be able toIt was going to cost her apparently but she had lost her self respect years agoTo sacrifice her body at the altar of moneyFine She would do what she had to I mean yeah I should totally hate the woman but I haven’t been able toI’ve found TBK than entertaining and I enjoyed reading it so much I love when I jump from conclusion to conclusion Sometimes I spoiled myself but it is too funI liked the villain Lane’s father but I wish we could have of him We all see his evil acts for afar or just the results and I really wanted to see him in action I mean being the complete SOB that he wasGuys I like me some refined evil minds and on top of that the man was a total asshole so I’d want to read about him and despise the living shit out of that bastard I hope we get that in book two view spoilerI doubt that will happen considering the tiny little fact that said asshole is dead But we could totally have character development even if he’s dead I trust Ward to do it right hide spoiler

The Bourbon KingsE The Bourbon PDF or twain shall meetFor Lizzie King Easterly’s head gardener crossing that divide nearly ruined her life Falling in love with Tulane the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty was nothing that she intended or wanted and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right Now after two years of staying away Tulane is finally coming home again and he is bringing the past with him No one will be le FULL 6 STAR REVIEW NOW POSTED “You’re the love of my life whether you’re with me or not” I have the biggest book hangover ever I am literally struggling to find things to occupy my mind with just so I wouldn’t go back to re read this fabulous oh so addictive sinfully ish book because at the end of the day no matter how many times I flip those last few pages no new ones are going to appear The first instalment in The Bourbon Kings saga this is the devastatingly compelling story of a very prestigious Southern family from Kentucky—the Bradfords—and it follows the four Bradford siblings and all the scandals and heartbreak entailed upon them by being born into such wealth and privilege The best way I can describe the feeling of reading a book such as this would be to say that if Dynasty and Downton Abbey had a baby this would be it I am telling you this book will ruin you break you steal your breath away so many times you'll be breathing into a paper bag by the end of it and once you recover you’ll be begging for “I was almost over you Lane I was getting my breath back my life back” While the story as a whole is comprised of a number of intertwined subplots as we get to hear several distinct voices belonging to each Bradford son or daughter as well as their romantic interests this book in a way belongs to the youngest Bradford child—Jonathan “Lane” Tulane Baldwine—and the woman he lost two years before but never got over—Lizzie King Lane has been wasting his life away for two long years hiding from the world in New York City and spending his days either drinking or playing poker but the ill health of the only uasi parent he’s ever loved suddenly brings the prodigal son back home to a house he never wanted to see again forcing him to face the woman he cannot stop thinking about “The one man she never wanted to see again was going to come home” Lizzie has been working at the Bradford Family Estate for ten years working her way up to become one of their most valuable employees Independent diligent proud of her hard work and determined to make it on her own in life—nothing prepares her for the return of the youngest Bradford son her body betraying her from the moment they lay eyes on each other again but two years of separation have not even dimmed her heartbreak or the sting of his betrayal Lane however is a changed man unwilling to let the love of his life slip through his fingers once again and prepared to do whatever it takes to convince her to trust him again “I’m prepared to be a very patient man when it comes to you I will seduce you for however long it takes—give you space if you need it or follow you tight as sunshine on your shoulder if you’ll let me I lost my chance with you once Lizzie King—that is not going to happen again” Lane is not the only Bradford we get to fall in love with in this book his sister Gin’s and older brother Edward’s storylines being even captivating and intense at times Virginia “Gin” Baldwine is a woman who lost her self respect a long time ago a woman who feels deeply and hates herself for all her downfalls and yet for all those around her she maintains an air of pride perfection superiority and complete emotional detachment Spoiled by a lifetime of depraved luxury and blessed with good genes Gin is used to getting her way in everything especially the men she sleeps with but ever since she was a teenager she has loved one man and one man alone—the only man she can never have For almost two decades she has played a torturous and unhealthy cat and mouse game with Samuel Theodore Lodge III—Samuel T to his friends—a successful attorney and old family friend always one upping each other with their sexual conuests while maintaining a very casual friends with benefits arrangement between them But when two very headstrong people play a cruel game with each other for too long they eventually end up forgetting why they started playing it in the first place possibly losing the only chance they get at finding their happily ever after “To sacrifice her body at the altar of money Fine She would do what she had to” And then there is Edward Baldwine the eldest son and heir apparent to the Bradford ‘throne’ a man whose broken body coupled with a lifetime of physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father have forced him to leave his old life behind and become a recluse who spends his days training horses and his nights drowning himself in self pity and alcohol But even as a shadow of his old self his heart continues to ache for Sutton Smythe the daughter of the Bradfords’ biggest competitor and Edward’s best friend since childhood a woman he never claimed when he had a chance to but secretly loved all his life “You must know that I fell in love with you a long time ago You must know it How could you not I’ve been following you around for years— is that why you hate me” While he fall head over heels with each Bradford sibling and the people they are destined to love forever we also see them facing one common problem a monumental setback that would change all their lives collectively and would reuire them to either join forcesor watch reality as they know it disappear in a puff of smokeA sinfully addictive telenovela esue collection of jaw dropping twists and turns secrets and lies set against a very enthralling backdrop of Southern wealth and privilege I never wanted this book to end Ever I loved all the main characters felt heartbroken over all their storylines and cannot wait to see where the series takes us In the meantime I’ll be the one rocking in a corner begging the universe to make the wait for the next book as short as possible “This is your time Lane God has provided you with a sacred duty to keep this family together You are the only one who can do it This is all falling into place because it is your destiny to bind the blood once again It happens every couple of generations It’s happening now This is your time” 6 STARSSee this review on my blog | Follow me on Facebook | Follow me on Twitter US UK CA
