My life is over. I swore I would never work at the whiskey distillery with my last name on it, that I would never be a part of my father’s legacy. But when I graduated with my art degree and realized there were no jobs, the devil appeared, and I sold my soul, agreeing to work in the family business if he’d give me the art studio I’d always dreamed of.

The Becker brothers have a reputation for being trouble, and since I love trouble, it’s no surprise to me that I’m infatuated by that forbidden fruit the first day I walk into the distillery. That lean, whiskey-eyed, too-hot-for-his-own-good man hates me — and I can’t blame him. His family has been at war with mine for decades, and for good reason. The Beckers and the Scooters are the Montagues and Capulets of Stratford, Tennessee. But if he’s Romeo, and I’m Juliet? Well… we all know how that story ends — and for that reason, I tell myself to steer clear. Because if my father finds out I’m falling for Logan Becker, my life actually will be over. And Logan’s will be, too.

Logan and Mallory were so fun to read about and one of the big reasons I liked them so much was because they suited each other so well. Where Logan was organized and living life in black and white, Mallory was carefree and colorful. Seeing how well they came together had me devouring the book, especially when I was dying for them to give in to their chemistry. And the story was also very intriguing itself. There was an underlying story going on surrounding Logan's family, especially his deceased father, that I was very interested in. And even though that story wasn't exactly resolved, I'm super excited to continue that in the next Becker brother's book. ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review.

She is full of tattoos and earrings, strong and independent, who will do anything to fulfill her dream - open her own art studio. 💕 And although she never needed his approval, her father agrees to help her with her dream, if she works in the family business for 5 years. 😱 The Baker family and the Scooter family don't like each other, to say the least. They are the modern Montague and Capulet family's - which make Logan and Mallory a type of Romeo and Juliet. 😍 What will happen when Logan has to guide Mallory into a tour guide role? Will they be able to keep their families' quarrels aside? Even if it means that one of them will have to give up his dream, in favor of the other? And will their end also be tragic ...?

The book is written with a lot of emotion and has well-developed characters, but (and even though it happened to me with the first book in the series, which was just great! 💕) It took me a lot longer to connect with the plot and the connection to the characters was less strong ... Plus, it bothered me that the secondary plot was dragged - because compared to a previous book, here it was taken off the main characters focus ... (How many more books I will have to read until I understand what really happened to their father??) "𝑫𝒐 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒏𝒌 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆'𝒔 𝒂 𝒖𝒏𝒊𝒗𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒆𝒙𝒊𝒔𝒕𝒔 𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒄𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒃𝒆 𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒆?" It is a story about family, loyalty and a forbidden love. It's full of romance, passion, humor and a love that worth fighting for! ❤ Can't wait for Mikey's story - the young moody brother of the Baker family ...

Shakespeare knew what he was doing when he presented to the world, Romeo and Juliet. He gave us the perfect love story with all of the challenges young love can have. What made it so perfect was this universal conflict of two families being arch enemies with their children falling for each other. Now in the original story, it was extremely tragic. But the idea of family conflicts with love was presented for others to understand and use for future generations of writers. Kandi Steiner's Neat took this premise and made it her own. Well, Kandi Steiner hooked me as a reader with her book, The Wrong Game. Then I read On The Rocks and fell hard for the Becker Brothers, their family and their ties to Scooter Whiskey. I learned of the heart and care these brothers had for each other, their mother and the Whiskey their lineage started with the Scooters. Now, these books may have links with family and location but they easily stand alone. You can read them without the other...but I will share, I enjoyed the linking. Logan Becker has had a secret for a very long time. Since he was a young boy, he always thought Mallory wasn't like other girls. Other girls were boring or had no spark. Other girls were ok but didn't have that sharp way of looking like they were interested in everything like Mallory. Anf Mallory didn't act anything like all the other Scooters. But Logan's long-time interest in Mallory had been a well-kept secret because Beckers and Scooters were not families that were friends. Long ago they were partners, started the distillery. But when the original Scooter passed, he left out any ownership to the partner Becker causing bad blood between the families. It then became even more ugly when the brothers' father passed under questionable circumstances at the distillery. Now the brothers work for the Scooters as a way to hold onto the legacy and honor of the Becker family. Mallory Skooter has been running from the family business from the start. She was nothing like any of her family; Mallory marched to her own drum much to the dislike of her father. She was an artist through and through and for years she was able to thrive in the environment of others like her. She was years into multiple art degrees at university and then the school closed. This allowed her father to manipulate a situation Mallory had a difficult time turning down. In her mind, she knew it was a deal with the devil but the offer was too close to her heart to turn down. Which brings Logan having to be the boss of Mallory. Logan has been the lead tour guide next in line to take over the manager position when the current one retires. Logan has been working towards this goal for years. He is well-liked by all of the other tour guides and has instituted a consistent level of excellence noted in all of the reviews from the customers. Logan was a systems fella, a reader, and watcher of documentaries. He was a Becker so he did have the rep of a player like his brothers but mostly he was the peacekeeper, not a fighter like the others. Now he has his secret crush sitting right in front of him. Mallory is not happy to be there and came dressed not to impress and with attitude. She looks just as beautiful to Logan as usual but with the gum-snapping and bored responses, Mallory was proving to be nothing like what Logan thought she was... We get a step-up of two people who assume one thing about each other and through the course of their arc, are surprised by who they actually are. We see both of them learn of the way families have impacted their lives, how dreams and desires have sometimes clouded judgment. Best of all, we have a love story which develops in steps, growing and becoming something real over time. We feel all of the passion and want between these two. They are opposites yet fit perfectly. The banter, the interaction between brothers and families feels real. The undercurrent of the mystery regarding the two families continues but never distracts from the love story. It adds to the tale causing us to become more invested each time another Becker Brother book comes. Kandi Steiner has a massive winner with Neat. It goes down easy with just the right kick...making you want more. On The Rocks https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... Neat https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

There’s just something about these Becker brothers that is so appealing and irresistible. This time around it’s Logan Becker that utterly charmed me. Kandi Steiner wrote here an exquisite story where opposites attract and the pull of forbidden has never felt so good. Logan is a nice nerdy guy, but he has this mistaken image as a bad boy across town. How they’re all so wrong! Seriously, that man made me melt with all his sweetness and big heart! He’s utterly romantic; searching for “the one”. His first interactions with Mallory Scooter, his boss’s rebel daughter, are pretty rocky but the temptation is only simmering toward a magical connection! Their beautiful slow start comes to a powerful explosion of feels that made my heart palpitate from all the feels. As much as Mallory has a very different personality, they fit together so well! Mallory is unhappy about the high expectations of her father. He wants her to be part of the family business at Scooter Whiskey, but she has her own dreams! She’s a true artist and a rebel wrapped in a very outspoken and fascinating girl! I found her character so refreshing! She’s the kind of wild and free Logan needs in his well-ordered life! They balance each other dreamily and every single moment between these two had me spellbound! There are so many scenes in this story that put a big grin on my face, made me laugh out loud, made me cry from happiness and sadness, made me blush from all the chemistry coming to a scorching hot bang! This couple made me live their love story in the best possible ways and I didn’t want it to end! This romance is gorgeous, sweet and overflowing with emotions! Kandi Steiner created another mesmerizing story conducted by her beautiful prose! I can’t get enough of the Becker boys and now I’m definitely intrigued by Michael’s book, Manhattan! ** ARC received in exchange for an honest review **

Logan Becker's job and family are his life. He's dedicated all of his time to his job as tour guide at distillery and will do anything and everything for his mom and brothers. So when Mallory Scooter shows up as the newest tour guide with a sour attitude, Logan tries his best to hate his family's rival. But he's always been intrigued with Mallory ever since high school, and he isn't so sure their hate for one another could override his attraction for her. When this started, I was immediately smitten with Logan. He is such a nice guy and he is so adorably nerdy and I couldn't get enough of him. Not only does Logan read, but he is also super organized and so dedicated to his job. SWOON. When Mallory started, I honestly was not a fan of her and got so frustrated with her, just like Logan did. But, as they got to know each other, it was so cute when they stopped hating each other. Their conversations were so realistic and relatable when it comes to the beginning of a relationship and I loved how they grew closer. While I loved the beginning of this book and was so in love with Logan, I was a little annoyed with the culminating conflict between Logan and Mallory. I felt like it was obvious that conflict was going to happen and should have been obvious for the characters, but they both got mad anyways and it caused a rift between them. I just wanted something much more trying for the characters than what we already knew was going to happen. If I didn't love the Becker family before, I am head over heels for them now. I may have just finished this book, but I am already dying for more of the Becker boys and can't wait for book three! Neat delivers a romance you know shouldn't work but you root for anyways. I definitely recommend picking it up!

Neat is one of those books. Kandi has not only written a gorgeous romance about two people who aren't supposed to be together even though they are clearly destined for one another, but she she was also written one that about a heroine any woman can relate to. How far will you go to reach your dreams? Is it easier to settle and get it the easy way or fight with everything you have to make your dreams come true? This is one topic that is prominent throughout Neat and I loved being on the journey alongside the heroine. Not only that, the chemistry is off the charts in this one. I believe I saw and felt it before it clicked within the minds of Logan and Mallory, and was so excidted when they finally realized how deep their connection was. Of course, there's drama within their relationship as the two are essentially forbidden to be together (think Romeo and Juliet as described in the blurb) but it adds to the angst and excitement of the overall story. All in all, this is another GREAT read by Kandi Steiner. I am so excited for the next book.

I really liked her artistic nature and her bad girl vibe (the complete opposite of me FYI hahaha). I admired her rebellious nature but at the same time it could come off as sort of like a know-it-all which could be off-putting at times. Logan and Mallory are the perfect example of opposites attract. Neat can also be considered a forbidden romance and has a touch of the enemies to lovers trope. Neat was fun, sweet and a sexy romance read. For excerpt, Click link below: https://sentrancedjem.wordpress.com/2...

    Logan Becker has worked at the Scooter whiskey distillery with his brothers since he was 18-years old, working his way up the ranks until becoming one of the best tour guides the company has, almost 8-years later. The Beckers and the Scooters have a long-running rivalry—the Beckers played as big a part in the distillery’s creation as the Scooters, but only the Scooter name is sprawled on the building, and only they get any real say in the business.

The Beckers and the Scooters have a long-running rivalry—the Beckers played as big a part in the distillery’s creation as the Scooters, but only the Scooter name is sprawled on the building, and only they get any real say in the business. And after Logan’s father suspiciously died during the only fire the distillery has ever experienced back when he was 17-years old, all that’s left between the family is bad blood. So when Logan hears that the owner’s daughter, Mallory Scooter, is being hired on to work as a tour guide with Logan, he is far from happy. The two of them are the same age and were always in school together growing up, but their lives couldn’t be any more different. Logan could tell from the second she walked into his office that she didn't take this job—or him—seriously. Sure, Mallory is sexy as hell, but Logan knew that she’d be nothing but trouble. Mallory is an artist at heart, but unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to pay the bills quite like she had hoped. In order to make her dreams come true, Mallory’s made a deal with the devil—Patrick Scooter himself. Her dad’s paid for her brand new studio in exchange for her working at the family business for the next 5-years. And Mallory’s willing to do anything to have a studio of her own, to be her own boss and have a creative outlet. Even though their relationship had a rocky start, Mallory and Logan had an instant romantic connection. But they both knew that neither of their families would accept their relationship. And even though their feelings are as real as they come, the decades old rivalry between the Beckers and Scooters just may tear Mallory and Logan apart… Neat by Kandi Steiner is the second book in the Beckers Brothers series. I’m totally smitten with these Becker brothers already and I feel wrapped up in their small town. Noah won my heart in On the Rocks back in June, but Logan has stolen a piece of my heart as well. Logan is bookish, determined and extremely organized. And not to mention, hot as hell! Mallory is quite the character as well—spunky, sassy and strong-willed. But she also has a soft spot for people she cares about and will always stand up for what she believes is right. I loved their romance and was rooting for their happily ever after so hard! 4.5/5 stars. Thank you to Butterfly PR and Kandi Steiner for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Kandi, Kandi, Kandi... what a sweet read Neat was. It was the perfect enemies to lovers book.  Logan Becker was a tour guide at the local whiskey distillery. The distillery is all he had known for his entire life. His grandfather helped start the distillery and his father also worked there until his death (a very questionable death). Logan knew that he had to do what he had to do to keep his families name alive in the distillery. And to do this, he needed a promotion. A promotion that Kandi, Kandi, Kandi... what a sweet read Neat was. It was the perfect enemies to lovers book.  Logan Becker was a tour guide at the local whiskey distillery.

Logan knew that he had to do what he had to do to keep his families name alive in the distillery. And to do this, he needed a promotion.

Will everything be ruined?  Kandi..... this book was great. It was sweet and loving, but it had an edge to it also. I love how Logan and Mallory had to work hard to make their relationship work. I also love how it was not an insta-love story. How they had to learn about each other and see what the other person was truly like.  So ready for the other Becker boy's books!!!!!

Logan and Mallory’s story is everything I have come to know and love in a good Kandi Steiner novel; angsty yet heartwarming with a splash of whiskey. I absolutely adored Logan and Mallory. Mallory is full of fire and sass and I so love that in a heroine! Logan, likewise, he is a complex character and a little nerdy and it was just the sweetest! And the two make one fierce coupling, and I couldn’t put this book down! This book is so beautifully written, and full of angst. I cannot WAIT for the next Becker brother story. I need all of these boys to find their happily ever afters! I absolutely enjoyed this touching, earnest romance and would recommend it for anyone who enjoys an angst read that would pull on your heartstrings in the best possible way.

Reading this book is like watching a summer sunset, catching the last warming rays of sunlight on your skin, feeling the power of the sun. It does things to your body you'll remember forever. When we fell, we fell hard. When we loved, we loved with all we had. Logan, how can I describe someone so perfect? I never expected to fall in instant love with a character that’s no bad boy at all. Logan has not one bad bone in his body. If there is a Logan in real life, please send him my way! Malory is a whirlwind of colors. She’s a ray of sunshine with a direct line to the reader’s heart. If I could, I would adopt her as my new BFF. He was my Romeo, and I his Juliet, and our families be damned – we were going to make it. Neat has everything a romance reader’s heart dreams of and I loved every minute with it!

And this story wouldn’t end in tragedy. A modern Romeo and Juliet love story, Kandi Steiner hit it out of the park with her new release. Two families with a deep, painful history and a boy and a girl who are inexplicably drawn to one another. This story packed an angsty punch and gave me all the feels. Kandi has a gift of making you feel the connection between her characters, with Logan and Mallory's story being no different. I loved all the realistic conversations between the two and the development of a relationship that went far beyond sexual. I just need to talk about Logan Becker for a minute. He's not your typical macho, manwhore hero and I fking loved him. A man who reads, cleans, is organized and respectful?? We've found a new book boyfriend, y'all. A little bit nerdy, a lotta bit hot, and a southern gentleman to boot. There's just something about those Becker boys 😉 When we fell, we fell hard. When we loved, we loved with all we had. When we fought, we fought until we dropped. And when one of us was knocked down, the whole team stopped everything to get them back on their feet. That was the Becker way. Mallory, on the other hand, took me a while to warm up to but I think that might have been intentional. You come to understand her, though, and I found myself identifying with her family struggles and feeling smothered by parental expectations. I couldn't wait for her to break free of her family and make her own happiness, independently. As much as this is a romance, it's also very much a story about family. From Mallory's cold, formal family to the tight-knit Becker clan, it dives deep into the importance of family but also when to recognize that family can be toxic. Entertaining any kind of feelings for Logan Becker — whether just for fun or otherwise — was a terrible idea. Still, just a centimeter of his skin on mine had sent me into this spiral, and now that I’d had a taste, I couldn’t stop wondering what it would be like to dip the whole spoon in and take a full bite. Mallory and Logan are seemingly polar opposites, from Logan's nerdy, straightlaced personality to Mallory's rebel attitude. It was beautiful to see them find balance in each other as they found the courage to defy the hateful feud between their families. I do think the big conflict was easy to spot from the beginning and waiting for it to happen was a little tiresome. I appreciated that the conflict had real consequences, though, and had a realistic resolution. Just as with On the Rocks, I would have liked an ending with more closure. The drama happened towards the end and then jumped to the epilogue. I cannot wait to see them in the upcoming books though, so that makes it not as bad. Also, Mikey and Kylie?!?! NEED! She was the spontaneous to my well planned, the art to my logic, the unexpected welcome to my day-to-day routine I didn’t even realize was suffocating me. This can definitely be read as a standalone but the four books in the series do have a story arc that carries over. You can read this without prior knowledge of what happened in On the Rocks but there are some slight spoilers in Neat, namely (view spoiler)[what happened at Ruby Grace's wedding, aka Noah stealing her away on her wedding day to another man (hide spoiler)] . I cannot wait for the rest of the books to come out and also to see the continued development of the storyline of what happened to the Becker's dad.

    I've read most of Kandi's books but I must say- this is her most touching and most tender hearted story. Generally she has written, like most of the authors do, about heroines' POV in a romance, but here She gives us a peek into the heart of a man who goes through a gamut of emotions when he falls in love with his enemy's daughter. “Mallory?” “Yes?” “Do you think there’s a universe that exists where you could be mine?” “Let’s make one.” Logan Becker goes through every sentiment of infatuation, betrayal, loss,daughter. I've read most of Kandi's books but I must say- this is her most touching and most tender hearted story. Generally she has written, like most of the authors do, about heroines' POV in a romance, but here She gives us a peek into the heart of a man who goes through a gamut of emotions when he falls in love with his enemy's daughter. “Mallory?” “Yes?” “Do you think there’s a universe that exists where you could be mine?” “Let’s make one.” Logan Becker goes through every sentiment of infatuation, betrayal, loss, frustration, heartbreak and eventually total, consuming love as his forbidden object of desire- Mallory Scooter. I felt all his heartaches, his loneliness clawed at me, his rare smiles and his battle within...everything cause Kandi wrote it brilliantly. "what I desired from her, from us… maybe it didn’t actually exist. She had ties to her family, and I had ties to mine, and for that reason alone, it didn’t make sense that we would ever be together". Theirs is a conflicted and doomed romance because they belong to opposite corners of the Scooter Whiskey Distillery and their family disputes have drawn a permanent line right in the middle with Becker and Scooters on either side. Deep anguish and distrust have fortified their walls for years. It's an insurmountable problem and these young lovers are caught in the midst like Romeo & Juliet between Montagues & Capulets. "Logan Becker and I should have had a relationship that existed only within the walls of the Scooter Whiskey Distillery. He as the Lead Tour Guide, me as the guide in training. He’d show me the ropes, and I’d try not to get him into any more trouble. Because he was a Becker, and I was a Scooter. That was where all the lines should be drawn." Mallory shows so much strength of character, her righteousness just floored me. She ends up loosing it all, yet her pride doesn't take a hit. Between her sassy demeanor and his stoic character, it was inevitable that opposites would attract and how! "She was the spontaneous to my well planned, the art to my logic, the unexpected welcome to my day-to-day routine I didn’t even realize was suffocating me. In that moment, I took my first breath on a new life with her." There's a kind of purity in Logan person, his vulnerability and childlike craving for love just made me cry, although surrounded by a living family, there's an emptiness in his soul and Kandi made me touch that somehow. He's not the chest- thumping, possessive alpha, yet his quiet love lays a claim on Mal's heart in his own sweet way She has so fabulously explored a man's heart and taken us readers with her on this voyage. Kandi is a joyous nature shines through in her books, her smiles and sparkling personality are mirrored in her soft love stories. They are heavy on emotions and feelings and I'm assuming so is she in real life. Pick up this book, it's live, gulp down the Neat, unfiltered, undiluted & Heady drink of intoxicating love and feel the buzz, the ardor, the high...it's magic!! 5 drunk-in-love stars #BookBistroBlogApproved Follow me on: [email protected] https://Twitter.com/BookBistro www.instagram.com/BookBistroBlog https://bookbistroblogger.blogspot.com/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/BookB...

Mallory Scooter: Outspoken, vibrant, artistic, not your average Scooter. What starts as a crash course on being the best distillery tour guide becomes a romantic, fast-paced novel with just the right amount of tragedy. Like Romeo and Juliet, the Becker and Scooter families have long feuded over the distillery and its history, and no amount of love between Logan and Mallory will clear it up. A dream of more is all they have to go on, but over whiskey and secret rendezvous the two find love, despite their destinies. "We were the son and daughter of a bitter rival sparked to life decades ago and still burning hot today." Opposites attract in Kandi Steiner's latest, Neat. Logan and Mallory are from two different worlds, with Logan's being neat and organized and Mallory's as bright and sharp as whiskey on the tongue. The rivalry runs deep, but just like they are opposites from one another, the two are not like their families either. As they challenge history and fate Logan and Mallory find in one another a love that neither believed they'd ever find. From books to art, and their shared love of the family whiskey, the two find love despite what the stars say. I loved their crash course in romance, how Mallory gave Logan this wild side he'd never have otherwise and how Logan became like gravity for Mallory. They're so suited for one another, but unlike the title of this book there is nothing neat about it and readers get to follow along for the crash, for the comments, the stars, the whispers, and the ever-meddling families. "That kiss was an answer. That kiss was a lie. And distantly, I realized that kiss might be the biggest mistake of my life." Neat was such a nice little escape, released just in time for the changing season and my desperate need for a romance lighter on the angst. Kandi Steiner gives readers a romance you can cuddle up with, that makes you laugh, smile, and feel just a bit. I so enjoyed this happily ever after and this new perspective from a member of the famous Becker clan. I can't wait for whats next, especially with this book taking us another step closer to the answers we've been seeking since On the Rocks. ARC provided.

I have to say that I actually loved this one more than the first! Logan is the best character. He’s nerdy, sweet, driven, thoughtful and an all around nice guy. Logan has been working as the lead tour guide at the whiskey distillery. He is aggravated when Mallory, the owner’s daughter, comes back to work at her dad’s distillery, and he has to train her. Their families have quite a bit of history and a lot of real bad blood between them. Mallory wants to open her own art studio and unfortunately, has to make a deal with her dad to get her art studio for working at the distillery. Things are rough between these two at first. Logan tries so hard to resist her but he’s also fascinated with her. Mallory is quirky, fun, and messy, with a good heart. This does read a lot like Romeo and Juliet with feuding families. It was well written, and entertaining with great characters. I would definitely recommend this! * I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

This modern day Romeo and Juliet story pulled me in and convinced me to believe in fairy tales again. Every part of this book was perfect, even parts that had me doubting a happy ever after. “Thank you for shattering the illusion I had of the mysterious Mallory Scooter. The veil has been lifted, along with the spell, and now I see you for exactly who you are.” Without spoiling too much about Mallory, we had a love hate relationship throughout this book. Like Logan, I was excited about a girl who is different. Not the heroine who is beautiful, perfect, and always says the right thing at the right times. In the end, my girl came through and were now bffs, so it all worked out. "He was my Romeo, and I his Juliet, and our families be damned—we were going to make it." Logan Becker is the perfect hero. A secret nerd who stands up for what’s right but can also be the bad boy. I loved every part of Logan! “The oxygen she needed existed in my lungs, the shelter and protection she craved was provided by my hands, the care and understanding she’d been searching for, she found in my embrace.” This was a beautiful story about a forbidden romance, about opposites attracting, and about making the hard choices. “I wrinkled my nose. ‘Sounds messy.’ ‘Well, you did agree to let me be the mess in your life,’ she reminded me…Because what a beautiful mess she was.”

I was a scarlet letter. And my daddy said, "Stay away from Juliet." But you were everything to me. I was begging you, "Please don't go!" -Taylor Swift TS sings it best. What truer words that fit so well with this sorry of forbiddenness laced with undeniable attraction. Just when I thought Noah Becker had my heart-here comes Logan Becker and obliterates everything I knew. If I thought I fell hard for Noah, well it has nothing on how my heart tripped over everything and instantly landed in Logan’s hands. Logan Becker is the epitome of the perfect man. There was no question he’d steal my heart, but I didn’t know the magnitude in which he would. He’s everything caring and loving and just an all around incredible man. He embodies everything that is good and stands up for what is right. If you can’t tell, I love Logan immensely. And what made me love him even more is even though his family is rivals with the Scooters it doesn’t negate what he feels for Mallory Scooter, who he’s secretly crushed on for years. Logan’s feelings for Mallory have grown and no matter what, he’s giving in and igniting that flame no matter the burn. “I wondered if it could be possible—a Scooter and a Becker being friends.” Mallory Scooter dances to the beat of her own drum. She doesn’t care what people think of her and does what she wants. She’s sassy and not afraid to speak her mind and is a total badass. She doesn’t have the greatest relationship with her family and that’s one of the reasons why they don’t know who she really is, the real Mallory. She comes off as confident, but underneath there are insecurities that lurk. All she wants is to own her own gallery, but she’ll realize it’ll come at a price. She’s never wanted part in her family’s legacy, but to get what she wants she’ll have to work at her fathers distillery. And even though she knows she shouldn’t, that’s where she starts feeling things for Logan Becker. “There wasn’t a decision to make—not where I was concerned. It had already been made for us, without either of us having a say, without either of us having an ounce of control to throw this story in another direction. We were inevitable, me and him. And maybe we knew it from the start.” Logan and Mallory are a modern-day Romeo and Juliet. They both knew that neither of their families would accept their relationship. But that didn’t stop their undeniable connection. They saw each other for who they were, their true essence. They complimented each other like no other. Their passion burned through the pages. Logan and Mallory were every bit scorching hot and I couldn’t get enough. “He was my Romeo, and I his Juliet, and our families be damned—we were going to make it.” Neat is the second book in the Becker Brothers series. This small town modern-day Romeo and Juliet story had humor, passion and scorching chemistry between Logan and Mallory. It was sexy, addicting, heartfelt and romantic. With rival families, deep secrets and a forbidden romance that you couldn’t help but root for. There’s something about those Becker’s that is just addicting. And it’s no surprise they’ll leave you thirsty for more. Being back in Stratford, Tennessee with the Becker boys was a total escapism. I need more. I want more. I crave more. One thing is definitely certain when reading a Kandi Steiner book, she brings all the angst and makes you feel everything. And in the end, it’s all worth it. *I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book*

As the younger brother to Noah, Logan is the only other of the four sons to work at the Scooter Whiskey Distillery. He's probably the one most adamant about protecting and continuing the legacy and connection that the Becker family has with the distillery. He is loyal and passionate about his role in tour leader at the distillery so when Mallory Scooter is foisted on him, he's not happy. The thing about Mallory is she's not happy to be there either, but willing to do what she needs to get what she wants, an art studio. More importantly Mallory is everything Logan is not. Logan likes life neat, orderly, controlled. While Mallory is an artist through and through, and she too is passionate. And it turns out that Logan had VERY secretly crushed on Mallory in high school, so there's an existing undercurrent of attraction. In a way it's a fast slow-burn love story as it doesn't take long for Mallory to get under his skin. For her part, Mallory loves to push his buttons. She's a challenge and a challenger. Together they are the true "odd-couple", complete opposites yet so alike. I love how they balance each other out. They have fun (#paintplay) and when they go from zero to 90 it's AMAZING. They have very palpable chemistry but to be a true couple is simply out of the question. But they have to try and oh is that time so glorious. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters and to see the ever changing relationships between the brothers and their mothers. The mystery surrounding their father is still out there and I am very invested in finding out just what happened between their father and the Mallory's father. Neat is yet another winner from Kandi Steiner. 4.5 stars and recommendation.
