I knew she was sin in stilettos the second I laid eyes on her…
But did that stop me? Hell, no.
Because I’m nothing, if not a risk taker. And Roxi Rickoli, with a snake tattoo climbing up her leg and hinting at unparalleled pleasure, tempts me like the devil himself.
And while I can’t get enough of the wild redhead who runs my bar, I know that fate is a cruel mistress. And when she comes calling, someone must pay…

Secrets and Deceptions
Mr. Whiskey is book number four in the Case Brothers series by Tessa Layne. This is Danny and Roxi’s story.
At the beginning I had a hard time connecting with this book but trying to figure out all the secrets and deceptions kept me going. I’m really glad I did because I liked how the story came together and the ending.
FYI, contains mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

HOT! but there are secrets that could destroy the relationship they are building...when the secrets blow up will these two be able to find their way back to each other and have their HEA???
Mr Whiskey is a Big Teddy Bear?
Mr Whiskey was not the book I thought it would be. Danny was such an enigmatic character in the books leading up to this one. It was a surprise to find out how soft he is underneath. He seemed to know everyone's secrets and it turns out that he takes care of and protects them them as well. In Roxi, he meets his match, a woman who accepts him unconditionally and is full of life and secrets. Despite this he has to learn to trust and to forgive. Roxi has a tragic past and has to learn to trust and risk hurt as well. In the end, life takes a turn neither of them expected, and their happily ever after looks different than they would expect.
This was an enjoyable story which was easy to read. I finished the book in one day. While both the hero and heroine had tragedy in their pasts, the emotion wasn’t so raw that I was immersed in their feelings. The book did not make me cry, which I find is the case with books by this author. I hate to cry and appreciate this for that reason, but it means that Tessa needs to continue to develop as an author to make her characters circumstances more visceral for her readers. After having read eight of her books now, I must state that this is an author I look forward to reading again in the future.
