Previously released as individual volumes in Kim Karr’s Party Ever After Series, ReWined: The Complete Series is now available!
This read ended up being quite a roller coaster ride of a romance!
My life is one big party until the day I turn 27 and everything changes.
Before I can take over my grandfather’s vineyard, I have to…
1) Move back to my hometown.
2) Stop partying.
3) Get married. Wait! What?
Before I know it, I’m buying a huge-ass diamond
ring. Throwing a balls-out engagement party. And making the wedding a quickie
before the bride has a chance to change her mind.
Marrying me isn’t her first choice. She says
this party boy is anything but husband material. That I’m cocky, arrogant,
presumptuous, and even manipulative.
With both of our failing businesses merging and
a contract that states only one winery can survive, we’re spending a lot of
time negotiating, and not the kind I prefer.
Still, our perfectly unstable marriage is right
on track until I go and screw everything up.
Now I have to win her back, and short of
rewinding time or riding in on a white horse, I’m at a loss of how to do that.
Hey, every girl dreams of a Prince Charming. Right?
Well, I can redefine this party boy, and turn him into one.
Just wait and see.
***Contains all three volumes of the Party Ever After series.***
I’ve really been looking forward to ReWined: The Complete Series by Kim Karr, which is all three volumes of her recently released Party Ever After Series. I always enjoy a good second chance enemies-to-lovers romance and was so intrigued that it was based on a marriage of convenience in order to save two families’ failing wineries. This read ended up being quite a roller coaster ride of a romance!
Tyler was definitely a man on a mission to win back Paris’s heart, and although he was imperfect with his ornery and distant modes, it didn’t take away from the fact that Tyler was still a really sweet, loyal, and stand-up guy. I had a harder time with Paris’s character. Clearly, both she and Tyler came from difficult childhoods, but Paris’s indecisiveness in their relationship felt like whiplash and really niggled at me. I could understand her feelings on many levels, but I still didn’t feel it justified her dramatic behavior towards Tyler throughout.
The first part of the story was very intriguing and really set the stage with anticipation for suspense ahead. There was an underlying mystery that went back to years ago when their grandfathers first started their wineries, and I was really excited about how the complex story would unfold. However, that element got waylaid until the very end leaving the focus more on Paris’s back and forth drama, which left me a little disappointed.
Of course, Karr did a great job making this a passionate, steamy, and angsty romance, and Tyler and Paris got their sweet happily ever after in the end. I really enjoyed the setting in the vineyards of Napa Valley, and Karr did a great job of pulling me into the wine-making business, which I found really interesting. I also thought the secondary characters were a lot of fun with their sweet yet ‘meddling’ ways.
Kim Karr has been one of my go-to authors for years with her diverse writing of both suspenseful romances and laugh-out-loud romantic comedies. This really was an entertaining read, and while it might not be one of my favorites, there was a lot that I still enjoyed about Tyler and Paris’s sweet roller-coaster romance!

Hmm…Still can’t decide if I want to read this one. It sounds like you liked it, but didn’t love it. It’s been a while since I read a book by Kim Karr, so maybe I’ll give it a try eventually. Great review!
Thanks Deanna! I always love her books, but it’s hard when the heroine doesn’t win you over. Might have just been me though!
Sorry that it didn’t go they way you wanted it regarding the mystery, love. Well explained. Super review.
Thanks Astrid! The heroine just bugged me, and it took away from the story. I hope I didn’t drone on too much about it though… 😬
Romantic comedy? Wine?? STOP ADDING BOOKS TO MY LIST!! 🍷😂😂
