Virtual Tour w/Review - Sauvignon Blanc To Sigh For

 

 
They’re best friends until a wine and food pairing competition 
throws them together in an intimate, tension-filled setting. 
 
 
 
SAUVIGNON BLANC TO SIGH FOR
Love in Wine Country #4
Pamela Gibson
Releasing Feb 13th, 2017
 

 

Sarah James has always wanted to be part of a family. Her divorced parents are estranged and she has no siblings. But she does have friends, especially Sam, who’s always underfoot…eating her food, fixing stuff in her house, and seeking advice about his love life.
 
Aspiring winemaker Sam Reynoso has taken care of Sarah since the sixth grade. She’s smart, comfortable, and indulgent. They’re best friends until a wine and food pairing competition throws them together in an intimate, tension-filled setting.

 

As feelings neither of them expected start to emerge, each will have to decide if their relationship will evolve, or if their newfound love will be nipped in the bud by a crushing secret.

Sarah moved around behind him. Her subtle perfume blended with the smells in the kitchen. “Do you think my label is okay?”

 

They’re not judging your label. They’re judging how well the food and wines complement each other.”

 

You’re right.” He set the bottle down and turned to greet his friend, but she wasn’t there. In her place stood a siren—that’s the first word that came to mind—in tight leggings that hugged her hips and bared her midriff, and a fitted shirt that tied under plump breasts, showing a hint of cleavage.

 

What the hell?

 

But it was the hair that got his attention.

 

What have you done to your hair?”

 

She twirled in front of him, letting her hair swing from side to side provocatively. It looked lighter, and it looked like she had way more hair. “Where are your glasses?”

 

I’m wearing contacts. Do you like this look?” She batted her eyelashes at him and moved closer.

 

He stepped back, aware of an unaccustomed heat he’d never felt in Sarah’s house before. She was his friend. She shouldn’t look like this.

 

She seemed to be waiting for his answer, but he didn’t know what to say.

 

It’s…different.”

 

She laughed and put her hand on his chest. It left a warm spot there. He couldn’t back up any more, because the edge of the counter was biting into his backside.

 

Do you think people will believe we’re a couple now, Mr. Hot Guy?” Her voice was low and sexy, her soft mouth curved into a secret smile.

 

Geez, Sarah. You didn’t have to change your appearance.”

 

Sure I did. We’re supposed to be a couple in a committed relationship. I have to look like the girls you date. I have to be warm and affectionate, and look at you like you’re my dessert course.” She paused and ran her tongue over her bottom lip. “Let’s see. What would you be? A chocolate soufflé, puffed and pretty on the outside and dark and intense on the inside, with flavors that slide over the tongue and linger there to be savored later, making you crave more.”

 

The room was suddenly hot. How would he concentrate on wines when she looked—and talked—like that? And how would he keep guys at the resort away from her?

 

His eyes fixed on her cleavage. “Could you go put on a sweatshirt or something? We need to get down to business.”

 

Sarah laughed, showing dimples in her cheeks. She had dimples? Why hadn’t he noticed before?

 

I’m sorry Sam. The deer-in-the-headlights look on your face is priceless. But you’re going to have to get used to the new Sarah…at least for a week. We need to be convincing. Isn’t that what you said last time you were here?

 

He shoved his fingers through his hair. “Did I?”

 

No more playacting right now. Pour the wines, and let’s start tasting with food.”

 

 

 
 
Sauvignon Blanc to Sigh For (Love in Wine Country, #4)Sauvignon Blanc to Sigh For by Pamela Gibson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 4th book in the Love In Wine Country series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading series in order.

Sarah & Sam have been best friends for so long, they do not have room to think of more. Now, with this sudden surprise he has thrown her, she is re-thinking everything. She hates that he is trying to control her life and she is so done.

Sam does not know where these feelings are coming from. He only knows he has never thought of Sarah this way before. The future looks bleak without her in it.

Interesting story. I felt drawn to both characters early on. I was rooting for them almost right away. This series is just so sweet and the pace moves right along.

Pamela Gibson grew up loving books, history, and small towns. Her first career was a newspaper reporter, but when she returned to college to get a master’s degree, it was in public administration which eventually led to jobs running cities…not as an elected official, but as a city manager, the chief appointed one.
 
Writing was still her passion and in her spare time—between meetings and raising two active kids—she was contracted to write several books on local history. Taking an early retirement at the urging of her very supportive husband, she turned to fiction and began writing the happy ending novels she loves to read.
 
She now spends half her time on land and the other half cruising coastal or inland waters in her 32-foot boat. She speed-eats chocolates when she’s nervous, squeals when she sees a spider, and loves to relax with a good read with a mellow glass of wine.

About Jess Dee: 
 
 An avid romance reader since her early teens, Jess knew one day, when she grew up, she’d have to write her own love stories. And she did. Although the first one was pretty awful. But once she discovered it was okay to leave the bedroom door open in her romance novels, she decided to leave everything open. Buttons, zips, pants, number of lovers...Which is why her books are all steamy erotic romances. Jess’s first published story was originally contracted in 2005. Since then, she’s completed over 30 books, and is finally doing the work she loves most—writing romance.  

While Jess lived most of her life in South Africa, the last fourteen years have been spent in Australia. From the fast-paced Sydney lifestyle to the laid-back islands and beaches, there’s always another gorgeous Aussie setting for a contemporary romance.

Loving you
Love Story (Love Unexpectedly) - Lauren Layne

This is book # 3, in the Love Unexpectedly series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  All the books in this series are great, I recommend reading them in order.

 

Lucy and Reece have a history she would rather not repeat.  Thanks to her parents, she has to spend time with him going across country.  Even visit her boyfriend.

 

Reece is not sure how to approach Lucy other than to just take it day to day.  He has loved her forever, but being her brothers best friend seemed to set them apart.  Now they have separate lives heading in the same direction.  Could this be a sign?

 

Such a thrilling series and this book is no exception!  I love how the characters really are like magnets.  This story makes you feel all sorts of things and makes a great bookclub read.  I really enjoyed every page as I devoured it.  I give this book a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Love heals
Love After Love: M/M Gay Romance - Peter Styles

Henry & Ray are best friends who are both socially awkward.  When they try to meet new people, they stumble upon Ben.  The new friendships that come from the meeting help all three men.

 

Ben has many secrets and a past he is still feeling pain from.  Henry and Ray can relate to this - they have secrets of their own.  Pain is just a memory, if you can replace it with love.

 

The characters and relationships in this story are very entertaining.  Love and the healing that happens are done very well.  The book is a good read.  I could not put it down.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
