Dominic Price can’t outrun his past in the pulse-pounding second installment of Layla Reyne’s Trouble Brewing series
Assistant US Attorney Dominic Price is staring down the barrel of his father’s debts. The bullseye 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.
Book 1: Imperial Stout
Book 2: Craft Brew
Book 3: Noble Hops
Hot and action packed
This is not a standalone, you really need to read the first book, but I would highly recommend reading the previous series to really understand all the dynamics and relationships.
I didn't think it would be possible for Nic & Can to come close to how I feel about Aiden & Jamie, but they are getting there. In the first book I struggled a bit, I felt like I was missing something and we were dropped in their relationship and I was scrambling to catch up. No problem with that in this one, so caught up and loving it. Nic just flat does it for me, all that dangerous, potential restrained and hidden in a well tailored suit…. YUMMY! And poor Cam in this one, I was blindsided by the pain he was hiding.
Cam’s family dynamics threw me off just a bit, the story there and how they coped was hard to read. But it was well done to cause that reaction in me. As always with Reyne, there was plenty of gripping suspense, action, and deliciously steamy hot. While the relationship was on point for me this time, the suspense line didn't quite work for me as well as some of their others. I'm so excited for the next one though, I think it's going to be that perfect combination and really push this series over the top for me.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader's copy
The next installment of Cam and Nic’s story. Cam is called back to Boston for a family emergency. When his mom asks him to look at his sister’s disappearance, he can’t refuse her. Needing Nic’s help he asks him to come.
Spicy thrill ride. Great mystery and amazing writing. Both guys are super intense. The story is riveting. I like the progression of the relationship. It is organically changing. I got tense at times from the action and suspense. Absolutely wonderful!! I can’t wait for the next installment!
