Bennett by Chasity Bowlin

Book 1 in the Bourbon & Blood series

Bennett Hays has spent the better part of his life either loving Mia Darcy or doing his damnedest to forget her. It’s been a decade since the fateful night they were supposed to run away together. She left him standing there like a fool with his life savings and a diamond ring in his pocket. Despite all that, he never left… and neither did she. But in a town the size of Fontaine, Kentucky, you can’t avoid anyone forever.

Good storytelling with amazing characters. I'm so glad that both main characters were strong — not always right, but still strong.—Amazon Review
