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.
It’s finally here!
We have watched Loch & Ainsley’s relationship for two books now...& it’s finally here! Ainsley wants Loch to truly see her. When he finally admits he always has, the steam flows off the pages like a good cup of coffee! Loch’s former job has come back to haunt him and the town of Whiskey. So, in true Collins brother fashion, he does something stupid and tries to push her away. Read the conclusion to the Whiskey trio. Since Carrie Ann loves us readers so much, there’s a nice epilogue with a giant bow on it for all the Collins, including our Montgomery Ink crossover, Tabby & Alex!
I think writing reviews are so hard. I hate spoilers, I don't like when reviews reiterate what the blurb already says.... so here goes. This book is outstanding. It can be read as a stand alone, but why? Books in a series are always richer having read the series. Carrie Ann Ryan takes you on a ride that doesn't leave you hanging. If you have read the first 2 in the series, this book is just as amazing as the other two. If you have not read the first 2 in the series, read this book and then run...don't walk to get the other 2 books. The characters are flawed yet relatable, funny, and real. You feel like you are part of the story, like it is something that you could have or have experienced.
Carrie Ann Ryan has written another stellar book. Can't wait till the next one. Cheers!
Friends to lovers
Ainsley has been Loch’s best friend for years, taking care of his little girl they almost seemed like a couple. Loch is a bit stubborn and won’t give in to his feelings for her. There’s always a little mistery and danger in the quiet town of Whiskey and the Collins are always in the middle. Ainsley does show her toughness, she is no delicate flower. I loved her. And Loch had to unlock his heart. Great story. This series is great.
