Blurb from Goodreads: Bourbon is in Brandon Morgan’s blood. His family owns the best bourbon brand in the country—or it will be with his marketing genius. And after meeting the fiery daughter of a tequila distillery owner, he’s never been more sure.
    His barrels, her tequila. It’s a match made in heaven. But only if he can keep his hands off the owner’s daughter…and his secrets to himself.
    Lesa Ruiz will do anything to keep Little Possum afloat, but one look at Brandon’s gorgeous dimples and Lesa knows two things for sure: forever is not in the cards with this man and he’s way too sexy to resist for long.
    Well, three things… Brandon is hiding something, and she’ll need to get a lot closer to figure it out and save her family’s legacy. Shots, anyone?
My thoughts: Teri Anne is a friend, so I’ll say that up front. But that’s not why I read her books. I read them because they’re enjoyable, and this one is no different. I sometimes wish they were longer, though. If you’re looking for a funny, quick read (with some hot, sexy scenes) give this one a try.

Got the A/C fixed on Monday. Repairman suspects a leak. The thing is only 8 years old. We bought the top of the line unit and right now it’s worse than the cheapie thing we had that died at 12. Ugh. Anyway, he put dye in the line so the next time it starts not cooling again, he can determine where the leak is. Hopefully it will be fixable, because it could be leaking where it can’t be fixed. At least it’s working now. Not that we need it.

The weather has been super-duper the last couple of days. Cool and dry. I could get used to summers like this. Then I wouldn’t need the stupid A/C.

So… How long do you think an A/C should work?

Happy Reading!

Twelve to fifteen years, so eight is unacceptable. We had a leak in our first one and it was easily fixed. Easily, not cheaply.
We have definitely needed our air here, although it's been cooler in the evenings and not as humid.

Alex - Just getting the dye added cost a fortune. Well... not as much as a new unit, but still. At least we won't have to pay for the return visit (when it breaks again). Only for the fix. Which I'm sure will cost more than the dye. Ugh.

This weather has been fantastic, hasn't it? We have three central AC systems, 15, 20, and 22 years old. None have ever had any major problems. The ones in our apartment buildings are almost as old, though my husband plans to replace them soon.

Jennette - The weather was fantastic, but today made me glad the A/C is working. For now.
