Review: Chinook, Wine and Sink Her

Welcome to Review Wednesday! Today I have the contemporary romance Chinook, Wine and Sink Her by Morgan Q. O'Reilly. Enjoy!!!

 Linnet Greenbriar wanted nothing but some seclusion. After a traumatic event at her old job, she's ready to be by herself in the outdoors of Circle, Alaska. Her job for the Fish and Game is simple: net fish in the mighty Yukon River, weigh and measure them, then throw'em back. But Linnet's peace and quiet soon comes to an end when Creed Willis shows up. This larger than life man with a soft spot for fish and flirting soon pulls Linnet out of her harden shell of self-protection.

Creed Willis has never had a relationship longer than one of his two week leaves. Woman fall at his feet and create no game for him to catch. So when he meets the independent Linnet Greenbriar, his first instinct is to reel her in. That is until he leans the secret she has kept, even from her family, for the last few years.

With trust building between them and the addition of Linnet's brothers arrival, the two begin learn there is love to be found on the Yukon River. All Creed has to do is Chinook, Wine and Sink Her.

Okay, I'm going to admit this--- I've loved this cover since it's release! HOT DAMN!! But seriously, Morgan Q. O'Reilly hit this emotional tale on the head. The distinctive characters had all their own personalities, which enabled the reader to never get confused with who is talking. A hard learned talent to hone.
The teasing and banter had me laughing out loud while the plot kept me intrigued. I loved her strong female Linnet and the male self confidence Creed eluded to let her work things emotionally out on her own.
A great summer read and more than worthy of Five Blue Roses! Congratulations, Morgan Q. O'Reilly.

Warning: F/M Romance, great sex, and a wild baby moose.
