Blog Tour Review: Barrel Proof by Layla Reyne

Barrel Proof 
Agents Irish and Whiskey #3
by Layla Reyne
Release Date: August 7, 2017
Genre: M/M Romantic Suspense

FBI agents Aidan "Irish" Talley and Jameson "Whiskey" Walker can't get a moment's peace. Their hunt for the terrorist Renaud seems to be nearing an end, until a fire allows him to slip through their fingers—and puts Jamie's life in danger. When Jamie is nearly killed, Aidan learns how many forms loss can take. 

Aidan says I love you just moments before learning that Jamie's been keeping a devastating secret about Aidan's late husband. How quickly trust and love can go up in flames. When Aidan requests a solo undercover assignment, Jamie hopes Aidan will find a way to forgive him. 

But the explosions are far from over. Aidan's cover lands him in the heart of the terrorist's conspiracy, and Jamie will have to put his life, his career and his freedom on the line to save the man who has become his entire world. Partners, always is a promise he intends to keep.

“A heart-pounding, romantic conclusion to the Agents Irish and Whiskey series.”

We are finally coming to an end for Agent Irish and Whiskey series. First of all, I confessed that the story arc that was introduced since the first book didn't intrigued me that much. Although they called it terrorism, it feels like white collar crime to me. Is all about ultimate financial chaos and we knew all along who is the main villain, though along the way we are surprised by some other culprit who are involved as well. 

The series relies heavily on their FBI investigative work to make the story move forward, so in this case, I have enough of Renaud's case already. We have the prerequisite villain's monologue and more drama right up to the last chapter, if we discount the epilogue. I'm so ready for all to be done and read about Aidan and Jamie's future together. The reason that I shoulder through this last book is to get the resolution and see how they will finally get their HEA.

Aidan ran a hand through his hair and tilted his face up for another slow, haunting kiss. “I love you, Whiskey,” he whispered against his lips.
“I love you too, Irish.”
Aidan turned to leave, was halfway across the room when something on the dresser caught Jamie’s eye. “Aidan, wait!”
Jamie limped over to the dresser, and Aidan rushed back to his side, helping to balance him. He snatched up the Chevelle keys and pressed them into Aidan’s hand, their fingers entwining around them.
“Jamie, what—”
“She doesn’t belong in my garage, if you’re not here too. I can’t bear to look at her there, until you’re back in my bed.”
“I can’t.”
Those words had haunted Jamie for days. With a renewed spark of hope, he could do something about them now. “Yes, you can,” he said, and leaned in for another kiss. This one was quick, firm, and with a dash of promise and hope infusing the goodbye. “When you’re ready, the both of you come home to me.”
