Review of The Distiller's Darling

The Distiller’s Darling
By Rebecca Norinne & Jamaila Brinkley

“He was never going to be the best-looking lad in the room, but he had something no other man here did: and Irish accent.”

Oh. My God. Iain and his whisky and his beard. Need I say more? Well, I will anyways.

When I started this book I was afraid Naomi’s commitment issues were going to push me away right along with Iain, but Norinne/Brinkley surprised me with the likeability of their main character. She is sharp, career oriented, her career is in art, AND she’s got mommy-issues.
 With all that on her plate, she was still a badass leading-lady—but with a heart of stone.

Iain shared Naomi’s desire for a no strings attached fling—he was only going to be in the states for two months. At least, that was the plan.

“Sixty days…that’s all. After that, I’ll be gone. And then years from now you can sit around with your girlfriends, drinking a bottle of Noah’s wine, gossiping about the sexy Irishman who made you come like no one ever had before. Or since.”

I LOVED watching these two warm up to one another as I dove deeper and deeper into the pages. Their resistance to all things relationship made their interactions feel even more special and steamy.

“You can have your own life and still have other people in it, Naomi. You don’t have to be all alone to be successful.”

Norinne & Brinkley hit the nail on the head with this charming romance. The characters are witty & sharp, the whiskey is strong & smooth, and I stayed up late into the night devouring this book.

Thank you to Inkslinger PR & Rebecca Norinne  and Jamaila Brinkley for the review copy, I thoroughly enjoyed your words.
