REVIEW – ON THE ROCKS by Kandi Steiner


Noah Becker is nothing but trouble.

That’s what Mama told me when I was a kid, kicking his pew in church and giggling at the games we’d play. It’s what the town said when his father died and the Becker brothers went wild.

And it’s on repeat in my mind the day I walk into the whiskey distillery where he works to buy a wedding gift for my fiancé.

He’s trouble.
Dirty, sweaty, rude trouble.

No matter how many times I repeat it, I can’t escape Noah in our small Tennessee town. And the more I run into him, the more he infuriates me. Because he sees what no one else does.

He sees me—the real me.

The me I’m not sure I’m allowed to be.

I’m Ruby Grace Barnett, the mayor’s daughter. Soon to be a politician’s wife, just like Mama and Daddy always wanted.  Soon to fulfill my family’s legacy, just like I always knew I would.

Until the boy everyone warned me about makes me question everything, like whether the wedding I’m planning is one I even want.

Everyone says Noah Becker is nothing but trouble.

If only I had listened.

”You are the heroine just as much as he is the hero. And if he loves you, he will support you and your dreams just as you’ve supported his and will continue to in the future.”
“If you were mine, Ruby Grace, your dreams wouldn’t come second to anything.”




”ON THE ROCKS” is a slow build, sultry summer romance read that is sure to be a hit with Kandi Steiner fans! The plot is filled with angst and drama. Enough to keep readers thoroughly entertained. It’s got a sweet and sassy heroine, a Hero who’s impossible not to fall head over heels in love with, and a secondary character that nearly steals the whole show.

Ruby Grace is about to marry the man of her dreams. He is devoted to her and on his way to becoming a powerhouse in the political arena. Her parents love him and are so proud of her. To everyone, it looks like she’s got the world at her feet. So why does she feel like she’s drowning? And how is it that the biggest “player” in town is the only one who can see through her facade? Noah is ten years older than her and they don’t run in the same social circles, but that doesn’t stop the sparks from flying between them when Ruby Grace shows up at Scooter Whiskey to purchase her fiancé a wedding gift.




Noah may not have ever been in a serious relationship, but he knows what love looks like. He’s seen it with his parents. Noah wants what they had and knows that someday the right woman will come into his life. He’s blindsided by the fact that it happens to be the one woman he can’t have. Ruby Grace is too young and definitely off limits. Noah knows he needs to stay away, but can he when he knows in his heart she is his true soulmate and is about to make the biggest mistake of her life?

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 5
Heroine: 4.5
Plot: 4
Angst: 4.5
Steam: 4
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5
