LGBTQ, Romantic Suspense/Mystery
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.

CASK STRENGTH is the second book in the Agents Irish and Whiskey series, and I would say that you would need to read book one to understand all the nuances that go on below the surface. If you hadn't read that, you wouldn't understand why Jamie is still with Aidan when Aidan is being such a jerk! I like him, I do, but man I wanted to kick him in the beginning of this book! Luckily for me, he redeems himself, but I won't say any more on that. This is an amazing second book, where Irish and Whiskey have to cool their jets on the 'big' case as the bodies start to pile up around them. Instead, Mel sends them on what should be a simpler case, but things aren't quite what they seem.
Once again, this book is excellently written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow. I read this book in one sitting because I simply could not put it down. First it was because of Aidan, then it was because of Jamie, then it was because of Riley and Press, and then the ending... yeesh!!! Trust me, book hangover right here! I can't wait for the next book, and I really hope that Cam gets his own book and HEA because I think he's wonderful :) Highly recommended by me.
