Whiskey Secrets (Whiskey and Lies #1) by Carrie Ann Ryan


Sparks fly between a former cop-turned-bartender and his new innkeeper in the first installment of a Montgomery Ink spin-off series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan. 

Dare Collins is a man who knows his whiskey and women—or at least that’s what he tells himself. When his family decides to hire on a new innkeeper for the inn above his bar and restaurant, he’s more than reluctant. Especially when he meets the new hire. But he’ll soon find that he has no choice but to work with this city girl and accept her new ideas and the burning attraction between them.

Kenzie Owens left her old life and an abusive relationship behind her—or so she thought. She figures she’ll be safe in Whiskey, Pennsylvania but after one look at her new boss, Dare Collins, she might still be in danger, or at least her heart. And when her past catches up with her despite her attempts to avoid it, it’s more than her heart on the line. This time, it might mean her life.

My review:
Whiskey Secrets is a spinoff of the Montgomery Ink series. This series revolves around Tammy’s brothers and can be read separately from Montgomery Ink.
Dare Collins is a former cop-turned-bartender and single father (with crappy visitation rights). He isn’t so great with handling life so he buries himself in his work and family. He isn’t a fan of change.
 Kenzie Owens is starting over. She has divorced her abusive husband and after therapy has found the strength to start anew. Change in her case is a very good thing.
When these two meet the chemistry is immediate though neither wants it. When they decide to explore it as “friends with benefits” things get hot. When feelings get involved it get complicated.
I loved Kenzie she is stronger than she knows and kinder than Dare deserves. There were times I wanted to slap Dare upside the head. I think that Dare finally discovers that sometimes change is the best thing that ever happened to him.
