Kaylee Ryan, be still my beating heart. Thank you for writing my first book boyfriend of 2018. Rhett (sigh), Rhett, Rhett, Rhett. What a sweet, beautiful soul he is and I would love to have one of him in my life (especially if he looked like the cover model. Hello eyes!!)
Hey, Whiskey is about Saylor and Rhett. Saylor has had a difficult road in life. Unfortunately, she had become a product of the system and eventually was taken in by her social worker. After graduation from college, her boyfriend of four years had convinced her to move away from the only home she had ever known and in with him out of town. Shortly after this, the proverbial sh@t show started to happen to her. As mentioned, she lost the only place that felt like home, found out that this ‘wonderful’ boyfriend of hers was cheating on her and was having difficulties with her best friend. Through some sort of weird coincidence of fate, Saylor ends up at a local bar, Corner Pocket. From here, her life will never be the same.
Rhett went to work for his father at their brewery after graduation. Prior to high school graduation, he had spent every summer at his grandfather’s house. He even went to ‘work’ at the whiskey distillery that his grandfather runs. When his grandfather falls ill, he returns to the only home that he truly considers home to assist in running the distillery.
Saylor and Rhett are amazing as individuals, but together, they are FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC! The spark, chemistry and hilarious sarcastic interaction between them felt so real, yet off the charts. The love between these two was so emotional and heartfelt, you truly couldn’t help but to fall in love with them.
The secondary characters were just as entertaining, amazingly awesome and was the little extra ‘oomph’ to the storyline. Although I adored Jake and Molly, Rhett’s grandfather was so ‘grandfatherly’ that he was the little extra kick Rhett and Saylor needed. (I don’t want to completely explain what grandfatherly is, so let me just say, I love the ‘Two-faced’ nature that he had between Rhett and everyone else. Absolute perfection with his execution).
I will be upfront and honest with a slight negative on this book. IT ENDED WAY TO QUICKLY AND I WANT MORE!! The epilogue was perfection, but I am so in love with Rhett and Saylor, I was saddened to read the last word.
If you can’t tell, this is an easy 5-star read for me. The story, plotline, relationships, heat and humor is off the charts and so well written. 👍👍
