He’s the kind of guy that keeps me up all night, but only in my dreams.

And it’s agony, sweet agony.

From the moment I laid eyes on Brantley Cardwell, I knew he was too good to be true—sexy, southern and charming.

There are some guys that are just too everything for their own good.

I should’ve kept my distance that summer, but I didn’t.

I should’ve known better than to fall for someone like him. But at seventeen, taking control of my heart wasn’t so easy.

I thought he’d be my first kiss. I thought he’d be my first everything.

He became my first crush. And then he crushed me.

Twelve years later he’s back in town and there’s no way I’ll fall for that sexy southern drawl, irresistible smile and all that charm.

No matter how well he fills out a pair of old faded Levi’s.

Maybe it’s the taste of bourbon on his lips that burns so good. But the bourbon holds a secret igniting a firestorm neither one of us can stop.

Now Brant is risking his legacy, his family, his heart—all for me.

    I truly connected to this book in so many ways that it is just to hard to put into words. I have so many feels with this book. I felt as if I was in the book with the characters living life with them. Absolutely a must read.

    Sweet Agony Recipe:
    A Double Shot of Passion, a Twist of Fate, and Barrel Proof Love
    Sweet Agony is intoxicating and irresistible.  The chemistry between Caroline and Brant is potent and pulsates throughout every encounter. These two characters share their dreams and fears with one another as they learn to lean into love. The sexual tension sizzles and the payoff is blissful. Add in some small town troublemakers, a few interesting rumors, and a bit of mystery to fuel the story along.  Ms. Pastore does a magnificent job of infusing emotion, passion, and hope into this story. Caroline and Brant will make you believe in fate and love. Cheers!

    This book kept me flipping the pages to see what was going to happen between Caroline and Brant. When she was in high school, she had a crush on him, but he never pursued her because she was underage. When he returns home, he keeps running into Caroline and he wonders why she’s so upset with him. Wait until you find out why, lol. Things really heat up, when they finally talk. I loved the suspense in this story and how everything worked out in the end. I loved catching up with the characters from Beautiful March also. I hope to read more books from this author, in the future.
