Publisher's Summary

London trial lawyer Gen has managed to corral that randy colt his lordship Arthur Finch-Hatten, the Earl of Severn, at least as far as anyone knows. In public, he seems to be behaving himself, but she’s kind of gotten involved with her client in a way that the Bar’s ethics committee would totally not approve of.

With Arthur’s impending trial in the House of Lords and the constant backstabbing in her law office, the last thing Gen needs is for Arthur to whisk her off to Paris for the social wedding of the century to schmooze the people who will decide his fate.

Gen has broken all the rules, and she could very well end up with a broken heart. She needs a stiff drink, and it had better be hard liquor.

Hard Liquor is the exciting conclusion to the Arthur Duet that begins with Stiff Drink.

Loved It!

Egad! What a great story!!! The story just grabs you in! I loved the characters. They seemed so real. I had to hurry and find Arthur's story part 2 to hear what was going to happen!!! Blair has done a great job and John Lane was wonderful with the narration! All the emotions! All the twists and turns! This is a must listen! The whole series is!!!

Perfect Conclusion and Perfect Narration

What a perfect conclusion to this duet!! I could not stop listening to this book! The narration was spectacular and the twists and turns kept me on edge. This was a 4.5 star review. There were a few chapters that were very short and didn't really seem to add anything to the story, and I found them a little distracting. Everything else was perfect. And there was nice little tease at the end for Maxence's story and I can't wait for that one to be released.

I keep coming back to this one.

An amazing and engrossing story with great characters. John Lane’s narration is absolutely top notch and totally brings the story to life. This story is made up of two books and you need to read them both on order, which is great actually because you won’t run out so soon! I find myself gravitating back to this story often and always enjoy hearing it again a d again. I recommend it to you most highly.

John Lane nailed it!

I could die happy if John Lane growled “Good Girl” in my ear as Arthur. I have read this duet countless times, as Arthur and Genevieve just do it for me, but John Lane’s narration was spot on.

Deliciously James Bondish

I was hooked from the first book of Stiff Drink and got to have this one as it continues the saga of my very two favorite main characters - Gen and Arthur. All the way through the book, it is like witnessing James Bond who is an Earl falling in love with the feisty, sassy Gen who is a kick ass barrister. It was full of spies and espionage and plenty of BSDM and hot hot scenes with Gen and Arthur. John Lane is now my new British narrator…swooning over his voice. Thank you Blair Babylon for dreaming up these 3 hot alpha royal billionaires!

What a story with great narration.

This second book of Arthur and Gen’s story in both reading and listening form. Blair Babylon weaves a story that I couldn’t put down, and listening was just as compelling ....having to get to the end of a chapter and hope that I could stop. If you like descriptive and detailed reads, with wonderful characters then you need to read this series-actually you need to read the entire set of books! Great job Blair and such a great narrator in John Lane!

Brilliant

This book is continuing the excellence of the past few books. It’s exciting and unique and draws you into its pages and refuses to let you leave. It’s the kind of book that has you so desperate to know what happens but trying to ration it out as it’s a book you never want to end. The narrator brings it to life even more resulting in a brilliant read from start to finish

I just wish I could give it more stars

Conflicted

So I love these characters so much but the story just went on too long. I think it would be amazing if it wasn’t painfully drug out. It became bothersome to have to finish the book and if I wasn’t giving a review in exchange for the free copy of this book I wouldn’t have likely finished it. Now that being said, the characters are so likable that it this story wouldn’t likely stop me from trying to read the next one to come out in the series. 🤦‍♀️this is why I feel conflicted, is the misery less then my curiosity. I guess I’ll have to wait and see;)

Brilliant, I loved it!

The Saga of Arthur and Geneviève continues. Hard Liquor picks up directly after the ending of Stiff Drink. Our favorite characters are deeply entwined in each other's lives. Arthur, our notorious playboy, is trying not to fall in love with Geneviève (Gen), only from the outside. Meanwhile, he is opposing the lawsuit and the red-tape to keep his title and earldom. Genis is still Arthurs's lawyer and, with her brilliant mind, is defending him while she is dealing with issues from her past.

Their journey to love is a winding road but one of passion and mutual desire. Honestly, I couldn't get enough! Arthur and Gen's connection is charged, sensual combined with serious steam and BDSM elements.

Blair Babylon is a talented author and an exceptional storyteller; she has a way with words, capturing and holding the attention of her readers/listeners. Her characters are captivating, and her plots are addictive. Her stories are packed with twists and turns. This time around, I was surprised where she lead the characters.

A stellar performance by John Lane. He really captures the nuances of the characters, the emotions and the chemistry, breathing life into the story. I savored every minute of this epic conclusion to the duet. Hard Liquor is a must-read, and I highly recommend the entire series.

OMG, even hotter! 💜

I freakin loved this book!! Brilliantly written. I hadn’t realized that this story was a duet but I’m glad, Arthur needed 2 books to tell his story.
Hot romance with mystery, heartbreak & even some humor. There were some very erotic scenes that I did not see coming. This book has it all. I loved everything about this story.
John Lane’s deep sexy accent was absolutely panty melting.
The narration was perfect.
Arthur’s story has an HEA.
The first book in the Runaway Billionaires series is Casimer’s story (book 1)
I highly recommend this book/series!!

Arthur part 2 - loved it!!

The narrator is fantastic and the story has loads of twists and turns to keep you glued to this audio book. Definitely recommend you listen to the first book in this series first to get the most out of this, but once you start this one, you wont be able to turn it off....just don't listen in front of the kids!!!

Suspenseful, Nail biting, Steamy & So Romantic!!💘

Audio Book 🎧
Hard Liquor
Runaway Billionaires: Arthur Duet, Book 2
By: Blair Babylon
Narrated by: John Lane
Length: 9 hrs and 49 mins

Omg, this book blew my socks off!! It made me cry so many times & only Tryp has accomplished that before, wow!!😭 You get to see the 'true' heart of Arthur in this book. His loyalty to his Crown & Country, above even himself, puts your heart through the ringer ... you've been warned.👑💥

Gen & Arthur pull ever closer, it's become clear it is the real deal for them both. He opens himself up to her like he's never done with anyone before, it's beautiful!!💕 Gen finally learns to trust that he's being genuine with her heart so once she's all in, its on like donkey Kong.😉 She makes two very important calls in utter fear & desperation! ☎

Casimir & Maxence are true brothers to Arthur throughout this book, They have his back, even in his goodbyes!💔😭 Gen is heroic in fighting for him & her two besties step up for her, thankfully. But when the time comes for Arthur to willingly face his 'Masters', Well, she might just have met the floor!😳😭💥

Blair absolutely killed it with this book. She took Arthur, Gen & their story to levels I didn't anticipate. The courtroom drama in the Lord's was fantastic, it was true 'edge of the seat' nail biting tension. The twists, turns & holes that had been dug, Well, I had no clue how the Author could possibly rescue our Hero from them!!😲🙈

I've read the E-book of this Duet too so I can, in all confidence, say that the Audio Narrator did an excellent job of all of the characters, but his 'Arthur' was outstanding!!😍🔥 He did an amazing job of ramping up the drama, romance, steam or heart break, as needed!! I was extremely impressed throughout!🌟

Christopher Finch-Hatton is a jealous, loathsome little bug!🐛 I can't stand Elizabeth either!!🔪😡 I just needed to get that off of my chest!😡😉

Go ahead, lose yourself in these Runaway Billionaires. They're so worth it & much more than they show the world on the surface!!🌟🙏👑

You will also see cameos with Casmir and Max . Casmir Audio is with Joe Arden . You will need to grab the first book in Stiff Drink since this one takes off where book 1 left off .
The hero Arthur is an earl and his brother Christopher is trying to take everything away from him. The earldom and everything that goes with it . Arthur might seem like a drunk, a wastrel , or his 2 best friends might call him , the Earl of no £ucks .
Heroine is Gen . She has a fear because she was $exual attacked earlier in her life. Arthur slowly allows her to open up and they slowly rely on each other . After a night in Paris some damaging pictures are leaked out showing Arthur is a trailer. Both Arthur and Gen need to do some damage control. Grab it and see who leaked those pictures to Christopher. Does Arthur get to keep the Earldom. How does Gen fair in all of this

John Lane performance was fantastic. He did Arthur British part fantastic. He also did Gen America part perfectly .

Blair writing the British words were great
