That was what Olivia Langston needed. At twenty-eight, she was given a rare opportunity for an internship in the rolling valleys of Crystal Falls in California wine country, far away from her small-town roots in North Carolina. It was an unexpected journey she desperately needed after her ex-husband crushed her.
At DeVine Winery, she expected a fresh start in a new environment to help her let go of her past. Instead, she found Daniel Black and a hell of a lot of sexual tension she wasn't prepared for. He was gorgeous, modestly wealthy, irresistible, and just happened to be part owner of DeVine, one of the largest vineyards in the country.
If only she knew that before she kissed him her first night in town...

About the Author
She doesn't consider herself the typical writer. She wasn't an avid reader. And doesn't have an English or writing degree. In fact, she didn't grow up with a love of reading or writing at all. Fast forward several years and a few book series later and Loni has become a reading machine. Not giving books their fair chance growing up was something she's since regretted. After blogging book reviews for a year, Loni climbed out on a limb to try something new: writing a novel. One year later, TAKING CHANCES was born and she hasn't stopped writing since.
Residing in Eastern North Carolina with her husband, 2 daughters, and couch-potato dogs, Loni works a full-time professional job during the day and writes in her free time.
Thriving on finding the tiniest speck of romance in any plot thread, Loni is a firm believer in the happily-ever-after's. She gets a kick out of taking her characters on a roller-coaster ride of drama-filled emotions and enjoys creating character-driven stories.
A romance that soothes the soul is her number one priority.

4 star The story has laughs and heartbreak. This is Olivia and Daniel’s story. Olivia knows all about making the best of what you have. After her ex cheated and blamed her she is leaving town. She is taking internship in California wine country. One the first night in town she kissed a sexy man but never got his name. Image her surprise when he turns out to be her boss’s son. Can she still do the job and keep it professional? She is going to try. But the more time her and Daniel spend together the better they seem to mesh. Can they both get what they want from each other or at the end of the internship will Olivia go back home? I loved these characters and also the side characters. I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story in this series.
All Olivia wanted was a fresh start on life, to spread her wings and fly from the disaster that was her life after a painful divorce. With her new intern position at a winery across the country, it was as if Fate was smiling on her hopes for a new and better life. Embracing the new Olivia, she went out for one drink, in a nice place, just to get her feet wet in the world of her new self. Then, across the room, the most beautiful pair of blue eyes met hers and, throwing caution to the wind, she not only danced with this strange and beautiful man, but she let him kiss her and she melted, completely, and ran, like Cinderella at midnight. Fast forward, day one on the new job, Eleanor Black, the charming matriarch of DeVine winery welcomed Olivia with open arms and heart, almost like a fairy godmother, she was determined to make Oivia feel at home, welcome and part of the DeVine Winery family. So far, so good, son number one was a charmer, son number two was a shock, utter and completely, hello beautiful stranger, but now this stranger had a name and a title, His name was Daniel and his title was boss and the rest is history. Has Fate tripped her up again or is there a little matchmaking going on from the poised, yet warm Eleanor? In a game of push me, pull me, love me, hate me, Olivia and Daniel must weather Olivia’s reluctance to admit he is her dream man, in every way. The Best I Never Had by Loni Flowers is a feel good, romance filled with all the angst and reluctance a once-burned woman could have, even when Cupid’s arrow has shot her straight through the heart! With wit, charm and humor, Ms. Flowers takes us on a tour of love, where grapes become fine wine and love becomes the nectar of the gods for two people in need of a fairy tale romance, jagged edges and all.
