Red Red Wine (Tastes of Seduction #2) by Jess Dee



Reviewed by Tabatha


I’m in a state of total bliss after reading Red Red Wine, and I cannot begin tell you enough how much I enjoyed this story from the very talented Jess Dee. Now I must admit to you guys that the whole jilted bride thing has never been my favorite kind of trope to read in my romances, but I had no doubt that Jess could sway me. She has an amazing ability to create characters you just can’t help but fall in love with, and she is able to capture such deep emotions between her characters for how short her stories are. To put it really quite simply, the woman’s talent amazes me.

"Fall as hard as you need to, I'll catch you."

So, now I need to get back to the subject at hand with Red Red Wine. Andrew Stafford is working himself into an early grave, and his business partner forces him to take a much-needed holiday. Upon his arrival, he is met with the drop-dead gorgeous Tori Worthing. The only drawback is that she is getting married that weekend so she is entirely off limits. When Tori finds out her fiancé plans to leave her at the altar she is absolutely devastated, but Andrew comes to her rescue and proves to her that her life isn’t totally crashing down around her despite how she feels right now.

"It was as essential as breathing. Tori was his oxygen and his lifeline. When she was around, he breathed. More than that, he lived. And right now, he'd never felt more alive.

Wow, did these two have instant chemistry. I loved the banter between them, and they were two characters that were far too easy to love. Andrew is commendable in his noble efforts to help Tori, but the passion these two share is something that is truly rare indeed and entirely undeniable. Not to give anything away, but a highlight for me was how much I loved that Jess gave Tori time to adjust to her new life after their weekend. Andrew was more romantic than I thought he was going to be at first, so I was pleasantly surprised by him. Overall, I just really loved that these two were brought together by a wonderful twist of fate, and I highly suggest you give this one a read. I did have to do a sneak peek on Jess's website just to be sure that Declan's book was coming after this, because I definitely think he is worthy of having his own book. I'm very eagerly awaiting what Jess has in store for him. :)
