Two best friends follow a dangerous and seductive path in the final standalone novel of the bestselling Whiskey and Lies series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.
Ainsley Harris has always kept a secret from her best friend. She’s stood by his side, helped him raise his daughter, and tried to keep her distance even though she’s been in love with him for years. She knows he has secrets of his own and she’s not willing to chance what they have on a possibility.
Loch Collins has hidden himself and his past from the world for good reason. Darkness always comes back to haunt those who fight against it, and he knows better than most. One night of temper, however, forces him to realize his true feelings for Ainsley—for better or worse.
But Loch’s former allies aren’t on his side anymore, and now not only is his life and the life of his daughter on the line, but Ainsley is in the crosshairs, as well. Together, two best friends must fight for each other and their small town, because Whiskey has never burned brighter. And danger, it seems, is ever lurking.
Absolutely loved this book. Can’t wait for more. Start any of her series and you will not be disappointed.
Strong series end!
Strong finish to this spin off series! Ainsley and Loch are a friends-to-lovers story. They have good chemistry and I liked how Ainsley had a backbone and helped Loch realize what he could be losing. The author is talented at writing about strong characters that fight thru their insecurities to achieve their HEA. Enjoyable read!
hits all the marks
This book hit all the marks for me. Loch is protective and loving and has a past that is catching up with him. A past that is putting the ones that he loves the most in danger.
Ainsley has been in love with him forever, but doesn’t want to chance losing his friendship on a relationship that might fail. Resigned to her role as best friend she supports and loves Loch and his little girl as much as she can without crossing any lines.
This books concludes the series with a bang, it’s an incredible ending to an incredible cast of characters. Sending them off with Loch and Ainsley, watching their love morph from friendship to true love was amazing. Another 5 star read from Carrie Ann.
