One whiskey-saturated night turns into something far more in the second standalone installment of the bestselling Whiskey and Lies series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.
Fox Collins likes his life just the way it is. His siblings are falling in love all around him, but he'd much rather focus on his next story than on a serious relationship. However, when his latest one-night stand returns to Whiskey-this time for good-he'll need to learn to trust his instincts to figure out if he can live without her in his life.
Former dancer Melody Waters is finally ready to settle down in her grandmother's small Pennsylvania hometown. Bad decisions and fateful nights have changed her path more than once, but now she's focused on one thing: opening her new own dance studio. But fate is a funny thing, and once again, she'll be forced to learn that actions have consequences and some repercussions can not only change your life forever, they can also come back to haunt you…one broken promise at a time.
Each book is a complete stand alone and can be read in any order.

4 pirouetting stars for WHISKEY REVEALS.
Living in the small PA town he grew up in suits newspaper owner Fox Collins. The only unfortunate thing is that he can't get his one night stand from a few months ago out of his mind! She haunts his dreams and his days, so when he sees the blonde bombshell, otherwise known as Melody Waters, has moved into Whiskey, Fox is doomed. Melody only wants to start over, to put her past behind her and start fresh. Fox belongs in her past, so even though she's opening her dance studio in the same tiny town, that's where he'll have to stay. Fortunately, and unfortunately, the past has a way of catching up with you, and just as the two start up a solid friendship, all hell breaks loose. Will their new relationship be able to withstand the turmoil coming their way?
WHISKEY REVEALS is the second book in the Whiskey and Lies series, and it's just as good as the first! I love Fox and Melody, their chemistry is just explosive, and every time they're together, I want to grab a fan to cool down!! Fox is sweet and kind of dorky, which is exactly what I adore in my book boyfriends, and Melody is a recovering mean girl, which I typically don't (but totally do this time). And although I have an AMAZING family, I really love both Fox and Melody's quirky ones too! The buildup to the suspense element was nicely done, but the culmination was very anticlimactic and disappointing, which was my only complaint about this book. This series is a spinoff of the delectable Montgomery Ink series, which is a favorite of mine, so naturally this series sings to me as well. Bravo, Ms. Ryan!
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; mild violence, no murder.
