SynopsisAnthony Beretta inherited the family winery at the tender age of twenty-four. It’s a struggle to keep it up, but he loves it and is determined to make it work even if it kills him. That is, if a motorcyclist doesn’t kill him first. He initially judges the man, attractive as he may be, on the basis of his appearance and apparently limited vocabulary. He soon discovers he’s wrong, but by then Oscar Kennett has already judged Anthony on his appearance.
Oscar thinks Tony Beretta is uptight and snobbish, and Tony’s speech for the charity they’re working on together reinforces that, even when he finds out Tony did it just to push his buttons. His adorable curls and sexy glasses might not be enough to change his mind, but maybe there’s more to Tony than meets the eye.
In Vino Veritas, by Sydney Blackburn, is a fun read, which is what I have come to expect from her.
Anthony, who finds himself in charge of his family's winery after his father's sudden passing, is in a rut, working too many hours and without a social life. Then he meets Oz.
Oz is a great character, fun of snark and sass, along with being smart. He's the complete opposite on Anthony, who is self-conscientious, awkward and nerdy. Seeing them together is special, as Oz helps Anthony with his confidence and allows him to find his true self, in addition to helping him to live again.
Anthony and Oz work wonderfully together, on many levels. They are fun, adventurous, and amazingly hot together.
The book contains some fantastic banter, along with some misunderstandings, some explosive sexual chemistry, a beautiful vineyard, and a meddling ex. The writing style works great, as the story flows perfectly, the characters are well developed, and the reader will find themselves laughing as well as swooning.
I hope everyone who gives this book a chance will fall for Anthony and Oz as much as I did. In Vino Veritas left me wanting more.
