Assistant US attorney Dominic Price is staring down the barrel of his father's debts. The bull's-eye on his back makes him a threat to everyone he cares about, so when his lover wants to go public with their relationship, he bolts. Not because he isn't in love—he can't stomach the thought of putting Cam in danger.

Kidnap and rescue expert Cameron Byrne is determined to figure out what trouble Nic is running from, but devastating news from home brings him back to Boston and to the cold case that has haunted his family for two decades. Shoving aside his pride, he calls Nic for help.

Together they search for answers, navigating the minefield of Cam's past. But when they get too close to the truth, Cam must use every skill in his arsenal to save the man he loves…before it's too late.

CRAFT BREW is the second book in the Trouble Brewing series, and should definitely be read after Imperial Stout. Trust me when I say you won't want to miss a single moment of the action!

Cam and Nic have been together for four months, and due to what is going on with Nic, he has been reticent about moving things along. They are still on the down-low, even though Nic has spent every night with Cam.

One night, Cam gets a call which shakes his world, and he is back to Boston, where his family needs him. Nic carries on, supporting Cam however he can, but it doesn't take long before Nic is there too.

Oh my, these two. Even when confused, they still try to put the other first. Hurt feelings are acknowledged, but grudges aren't held. I loved getting to know this pair a bit better. And learning more about Cam's past has certainly helped give me a better idea about his character.

One thing I will say, is I had to re-read parts of this towards the end. Let's just say my emotions were engaged, and leave it at that!

This book was so well-written, it flowed seamlessly. There is plenty of action without it being too much. Cases are solved, questions are asked, futures are decided. Is it over? Oh no, not by a long shot. The overall story arc is still live and kicking.

This is an absolute corker of a book, and I highly recommend the series - but please read them in order, otherwise you will be lost!
