Justin Morgan would happily drown the pain of his injured leg-and the guilt he brought back from Afghanistan-in bourbon. Except, there won't be any booze if he doesn't rescue his family's century-old distillery from financial ruin. The problem? Allie McGrath-youngest daughter of the distillery's co-owners, and the one woman he can't have. Allie has been in love with Justin since...well, she's always been in love with him. Now he's home, broken up over the death of her brother, and he needs help. She can fix the distillery-she's sure of it-but no one's taking her or her sweet new idea seriously. Convincing Justin is her only hope. Allie is more tempting than Justin expected, threatening a promise he swore he'd never break. If he can't keep their attraction under control, there's a solid chance they'll send the whole enterprise crumbling to the ground...if he doesn't crash and burn first.

Justin Morgan’s the guy whom Allie McGrath has always wanted, but her irrepressible and tough nature doesn’t keep her down long, even when she realised that he has never had eyes for her at all. 8 years later, Justin’s out from the Marines and battling the heavy guilt of having her brother’s death on his hands…when Allie blows back into his life with a scheme of wanting to market a new, modern form of whiskey that’s a radical departure from the family’s traditional brew.

Drunk on You’s pretty much another take on the brother’s best friend romance in an unusual context. While I must admit it’s my own ignorance about distilleries that left me bewildered about these spirits, the story was enjoyable nonetheless, for the lighthearted, witty banter between Allie and Justin that kept the angst from creeping in.
