Sometimes you just want to curl up with a sweet love story; at least I know I do.  This book totally fits that bill.
Emily and Jeremy meet on the ice.  She’s a figure skater and he’s a hockey player.  They couldn’t be more different, but connect as children, then again in high school.  But, Emily has a lot of pressure to reach the Olympics by her parents, and they dictate most everything about her life.  Emily moves on, in pursuit of her parent’s dream and to Jeremy, she’s the girl that got away.  When they meet up again as adults, Jeremy is bound and determined not to let her go.  He won’t give up this time.  Will Emily be able to let go of her rigid upbringing and give in to Jeremy, as he shows her to live and what could be possible between them?
As mentioned, this book is just a sweet, engrossing story.  Heavy on the details, to its detriment at times, it engulfs the reader in the world of the two main characters.  Jeremy is the classic romantic hero.  Adorable, giving, loving, exciting, sexy and patient.  Emily really needs him, even if she doesn’t recognize it, to understand that there’s more to life than what she has been brought up to believe.  Following along in Emily’s journey as she blooms is a very endearing, albeit somewhat emotional, journey.
For me, I thought that the writing was good but I got lost in the details a few times.  It seemed that things were described to an exhausting degree at times and at first I struggled with that.  However, once I got into the story I was able to adjust to the writing style and once I got used to it the book really flowed for me.  The storyline is the kind that comes full circle by the end of the book.  Through a series of flashbacks we see Jeremy and Emily at different points in their lives.  By the end, you see how all the random events and meetings through the years added up to something bigger than either of them.  I really liked that aspect of the story.
Overall, I thought this was a great book.  4 stars.

“I’m more than shocked when Emily orders herself a Shipyard Pumpkinhead beer with a rim job. I glance at her completely engrossed in her boldness, when the most amazing words come of her mouth. “I don’t know about you Jeremy, but I just love licking off those rim jobs!” Time for me to readjust my cock again, thanks in part to my naughty little ice princess sitting next to me.”
Something inside of me keeps telling me to fight for this girl. “Quit, just say the hell with it! Do what makes you happy for once. From the first time I knocked you on your ass when you were eleven at the Forum I knew you didn’t belong in that life.”
“You don’t even know me Jeremy! Shit! I don’t even know me.” Emily exclaimed. “Emily, I want to get to know you. But you keep pushing me away
If I’m going to go through hell and back again, at least it’s going to be her I’m doing it for. Call me crazy, but I’m going all in on this one, I just hope luck is on my side.”
“You’ll have no problem getting to hell, you’ve seen her mother. That’s not going to be easy to get through, but for some reason I think you’ll handle her better than anyone. She’s totally not going to be into you for a status fuck. But, if you are going to go to battle for a girl, at least its one as smoking hot as Emily. Best of luck man, you‘re gonna need it, but I’ll have your back if you need me.”
Standing up on my wobbly legs, I giggle. Why are my legs like rubber? I turn and my eyes run up the length of the guy standing in front of me. My eyes meet those intoxicating big brown eyes. “Oh Shit,” I whisper.  That’s when I feel as though I’m falling and the last thing I remember were two warm, strong arms wrapped around my body.
Staring at myself in the mirror, I see what I am. I’m just nothing but a commodity for my parents to use for their own self worth. I’m disgusted with myself for never putting up a fight, even once I was old enough to realize it. So, why is it when Jeremy asked me what I wanted to do with my life once my skating career was over, I froze up? A part of me saw that everything I’ve worked for in my life so far, is going to be gone soon and after that I’ve got nothing. What do I want to do?
I’m talking to Dave about some random hockey play when his eyes go wide, spitting his beer from his mouth. “I need a minute, it’s just not right.” What the hell? I watch Dave walk away before turning in the direction he was just looking, I see what caused him to turn away. There’s my girlfriend in her naughty Alice in Wonderland costume on her knees, blindfolded with her hands bound behind her back. Then she starts bobbing her head and a million different thoughts are now running through my mind. Just the main one is enough for me to run my hands through my hair and start pacing the yard because the wrong head is working at the moment.
Turning my back, while lifting my curled hair up I say over my shoulder, “Once you unzip this dress you can do whatever you want with me. Drink me. Eat me. Spank me. Fuck me. I don’t care just so long as you end up in me.”
“You’re my everything. You’re my yesterday, today and my tomorrow. No matter where we are five years from now, you’re a part of my heart Jeremy Page.”
A romance novel addict finds herself staying up well past her bedtime to see how the next story is going to end. Sara spends her days living on a vineyard in wine country with her husband and cat. Her family hailed from Italy where her ancestors lived in the mountains of Rocca di Cambio. A former Broadway star and champion skier whose career was cut short because of her passion for being a wine sommelier. It was on her way west where she met her husband, the President of a very influential MC in California. You can find her riding off through the vineyards on the back of a Harley almost every night.

Her passion for books has been viewed as borderline obsessive. But, when all you have is time and a bottle of wine awaiting you as the sun sets off the veranda writing became second nature.

In Vino Veritas
