Publisher's Summary

Professionally, the FBI team of Aidan "Irish" Talley and Jameson "Whiskey" Walker is as good as it gets, closing cases faster than any team at the bureau. Personally, it's a different story. Aidan's feelings for Jamie scare the hell out of him: He won't risk losing another love no matter how heart-tripping the intimacy between them. And loss is a grim reality with the terrorist Renaud still on their trail, leaving a pile of bodies in his wake.

Going undercover on a new case gets them out of town and off the killer's radar. They're assigned to investigate an identity theft ring involving a college basketball team in Jamie's home state, where Jamie's past makes him perfect for the role of coach. But returning to the court brings more than old memories.

As secrets and shocking betrayals abound, none may be more dangerous than the one Jamie's been keeping: a secret about the death of Aidan's husband that could blow his partner's world apart and destroy forever the fragile bonds of trust and love building between them.

I was not the right audience for this.

** Cliffhanger Alert!! **

Only the fact that I love Tristan James’s narration, and that I already bought the third book, kept me listening to this story.

Honestly? I was absolutely not the right audience for this. Between the callous treatment of Jamie by Aidan, Aidan’s behavior in total, Jamie’s spinelessness in their cough cough relationship, the continued withholding of extremely sensitive information from Aidan by Mel, Danny, and Jamie…it was just all so wrong – and almost specifically designed to make me lose my mind.

Plus there’s a continuous overwhelming feeling of dread underlying the story waiting for that bombshell to explode, all the unnecessary manufactured angst, and the bombshell cliffhanger? I spent most of my time writhing in fury with a red haze in front of my eyes.

Obviously I’m in the minority with my opinion and I firmly believe other’s experiences will vary quite wildly.

Kudos to Tristan James though, it was his narration that really kept me going, because man, this story drove me absolutely crazy, and then it ends with another cliffhanger, which means that I have to listen to book three to (hopefully) get some closure.

Tristan James is terrific

I love Tristan James narrating in everything he does. The books I have listened to by him have never failed to let me down.

The series continues to be AMAZING

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME?!?!?! I don't know if my heart can take this series anymore! Well, of course it will, and I will continue chugging along because DAMN if Whiskey and Irish aren't so freaking adorable, sexy, charming, smart, and amazing. I was so mad at Aidan when this book started off. His fear of his feelings for Jamie (which I totally get by the way) made him pull back and try to distance himself emotionally. Newsflash for Aidan--yeah, nice try dumbass. Jamie is so deep in his heart it isn't funny. I was so glad to see Aidan realize his feelings and my heart swelled 50 times when they said those magic words to each other.

The story line/case that the guys were working on in North Carolina was pretty cool. I loved getting a glimpse into Jamie's life before San Francisco with basketball. The mystery was great, too. I had most of the bad guys figured out, but I loved that there was still a little surprise in that for me. So much great writing in this series.

I am not looking forward to seeing the backlash when Aidan finds out about Jamie's investigation into Gabe. I think my heart might break a little again. The only thing keeping me going is that they are going to get their HEA and that there are more books coming with the Trouble Brewing series.

I listened to the audible narration, and Tristan James once again knocked it out of the park. I finished my ride with only 1 chapter left and I couldn't wait until tomorrow to finish the book, so I ended up reading the last chapter by ebook. While it was still amazing, I found that I love Tristan's version so much that I don't want to read the next book--I want to listen to it.

Another hit for this series

This audiobook was as entertaining as the first book and maybe even more. The agents Aiden Talley (Irish) and Jameson Walker (Whiskey) are still partners after five months but their "relationship" has hit a snag. Aiden still wants to keep things casual but Jamie wants to be exclusive. On top of that Jamie is continuing the secret investigation into the death of Aiden's husband Gabe and his partner Tom.

When the Irish and Whiskey are sent undercover to investigate a college team's online betting ring, past issues resurface for Jamie. He has to make decisions whether to fall back into old familiar routines or to chart new courses both in his professional life and his personal life.

This book was entertaining and the plot was both interesting and easy to follow. This author's writing flowed really well and the narrator did an awesome job with the voices. This story was suspenseful and I didn't know who the villains were until the end. There was a good mix of romance with mystery and I was rooting for Irish and Whiskey the whole time.

I am ready for book 3 because this series is quite promising. I have been waiting for one like this since Cut and Run finished.
