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.

Love this series!!!
Another Collins brother to steal your heart, and he definitely does (while juggling lol). He’s dreamy, talented, and let’s not forget hot. This time it’s Fox, writer extraordinaire who has a huge heart and a lot of sexiness, along with a side of rambling. We also have Melody, beautiful and talented, if not a little gun shy when it comes to people. But just like us, she has a hard time resisting Fox’s charm. Add in a little mystery and you’ve got another awesome Carrie Ann Ryan book. You definitely need to read this! Can’t wait for the next one in the series!!
Whiskey Reveals is the 2nd book in the Whiskey & Lies series (Spin-off from Montgomery Ink). Fox is the youngest brother in the Collins family and he's closest in age to their little sister Tabby (Ink Exposed). Fox is also the least athletic of the bunch and more inclined to be reading or writing. Thankfully he's never been criticized from him family for being more creative than the rest. Fox himself admits that even for being a writer he doesn't quite fit in to that typeset either, but he's just gruff enough to fit right in with his brothers. He's not quite as ruff as Loch, and I don't think the town of Whiskey would be able to handle it if he was (one is enough lol).
Melody is trying to find her way, and is trying to find new start in Whiskey. It doesn't start off quite as smoothly as she hoped, her first night in her new town she meets Fox at his brother's bar and ends up with an awkward one night stand. As they bump into each other in the small tourist town often she realizes that its best to become friends if she wants the awkward to go away, but it quickly turns into more than friends.
I loved these characters. They are so great together, her nervous rambling is so cute, and he just jumps on the train and joins her in his own little rants. I love that hes different from his brothers but embraces it, other times when you see that in a character it leads to that character being very uncomfortable in their own skin, but Fox just doesn't really let it get to him. Yes he feel a bit self conscious as the reader knows because its brought up once or twice but he doesn't let it become a chip on his shoulder . He does what he can to keep up with the rest of the family but doesn't try to over compensate. As far as Melody you can see where she gets her grit and spitfire personality from. Her grandmother has such a strong personality it would have been easy to drown in that, instead she shines just as bright.
Love, Love, Love, can't wait for Book 3.
Fox is my favorite from this series. He just has diarrhea of the mouth. What ever he is thinking just comes out. He is so cute!!!
