Review: Layla Reyne’s Blended Whiskey is a free novella in the Agents Irish and Whiskey ‘verse. Confession time: I haven’t read the Irish and Whiskey series yet. *waits for collective gasp to die down* I know. Where the hell have I been, right?! Heh. Don’t fret, guys…I intend to remedy that. But, if you haven’t read Irish and Whiskey, but plan to dive into Reyne’s Trouble Brewing series, this is the perfect intro. It made me want to read the Irish and Whiskey series, of course, but it also immediately made me want Cam and Nic’s story!
Blended Whiskey is the culmination of Aidan (Irish) and Jamie’s (Whiskey) story arc and gives fans of the series what I’m sure they’ve all been waiting for—the wedding. The book is broken down into six chapters, each from a different character’s point of view. Danny, Cam, Mel, Aidan, Nic, and Jamie take us through the events, starting with the beach house rehearsal dinner and then the ceremony—complete with adorable vows written by Aidan’s niece, Katie—and ending with some super steamy wedding night action.
At first, I thought I was going to need a Venn diagram to keep all of the connections straight. Ha! But, after my second read-through I had it all put together. I loved all of the relationships and the closeness between everyone; it’s obvious how important friends and family are to all of them, and it was nice to see them all comingling so beautifully. But, since my focus was on getting ready for Imperial Stout, the first book in the upcoming Trouble Brewing series, the Nic and Cam moments stood out even more for me. I loved their first flirty exchange over the phone, and then my favorite scene at the end of Nic’s chapter, which was so fun and sexy, and showed how great their chemistry is.
I think Reyne does a great job of making this readable and enjoyable for both diehard fan of Agents Irish and Whiskey, and also newbies. I got enough backstory on Jamie, Aidan, and the rest of the cast to not be confused, and totally had my interest piqued within the first few pages. Again, this is both a great endcap to the original series and a fabulous introduction to the upcoming book.
