I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
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.
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 said Noah Becker was nothing but trouble.
If only I had listened.
On the Rocks, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Kandi Steiner is LIVE
As I finished up On The Rocks I realized that I am really, really looking forward to getting to know the rest Becker men; Logan, Michael, and Jordan. But first, with On The Rocks, we have the privilege of getting to know Noah Becker, a man who is hotter than Hades in a rugged cowboy way. You know the type and you can’t help but love it. I could picture him so clearly in my mind. Thank you for that Kandi Steiner! And thank you for kicking off a new series with a sweet, small town, sexy, and slightly forbidden love story. The young Ruby Grace Barnett may be planning her wedding but it’s not her fiancé helping to keep her company, to make her feel safe and sane. And amidst the planning, the decisions she’s making for a perfect society wedding, she finds herself falling in love with a man who is NOT her fiancé. Id tsk her but I can totally see why.
With a slightly bad boy reputation and from seemingly different worlds, Noah finds himself irresistibly drawn to Ruby Grace, who I found an utter delight. She’s altruistic and just innocent enough to make her endearing. It was magical watching the friendship between Ruby Grace and Noah bloom. Ten years her senior their differences might have been greater, but certainly not insurmountable. Nope, never insurmountable. In fact, their shared values bridged the gap. They are more alike than anyone can see. They are both fiercely loyal to their families, which for Ruby Grace just might cost her her happiness. And they have the most wonderful effects on each other ensuring Noah shows us his romantic side
“I felt her presence swell into my chest, filling me up in some way that I never would have realized before. Because I didn’t know I was empty. Not until she poured into my life.”
This story left me feeling the warm fuzzies and a happy glow of delight. There’s a bit of angst but really, I had no doubt that Ruby Grace would follow her heart. I love the secondary characters, her friends, his family, the air of a small-town mystery around the Scooter Whiskey Distillery. I can see some dastardly deeds coming to light. I’m very excited about this new series and Becker boys ( for obvious reasons…they are charming).
4.5 shots, I mean stars and my recommendation.

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a diehard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer, and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
