Publisher's Summary

Layla Reyne spins off from her pulse-pounding Agents Irish and Whiskey books with Imperial Stout , the first installment in the Trouble Brewing series

It’s a good thing assistant US attorney Dominic Price co-owns a brewery. He could use a cold one. Nic’s star witness has just been kidnapped, his joint operation with the FBI is in jeopardy, his father’s shady past is catching up with him, and the hot new special agent in San Francisco is the kind of distraction best handled with a stiff drink.

Kidnap and rescue expert Cameron Byrne has his own ideas about how to handle Nic, but his skills are currently needed elsewhere. The by-the-book FBI agent goes deep undercover as a member of an infamous heist crew in order to save Nic’s witness, break up the crew, and close the case before anyone else gets hurt. Nic in particular.

Things heat up when Cam falls for Nic, and the witness falls for Cam. As the crew’s suspicions grow, Cam must decide how far he’s willing to go - and how far into his own dark past he’s willing to dive - to get everyone out alive.

This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

Imperial Stout, Craft Brew & Noble Hops

Would I listen to it again: absolutely
Did the story keep me engaged: completely
Was I invested in the characters: totally

Story comment: I dove straight into the Trouble Brewing series after finishing the Agents Irish & Whiskey series. This review encompasses the three Trouble Brewing series books (Imperial Stout, Craft Brew and Noble Hops) because I see the three books as the whole story.

I really enjoyed the dynamic between Nic and Cam's characters, their banter, the way they worked, bounced off and grounded each other completely drew me in and the action and adventure of this series kept me completely immersed. Each book has a good pace, and I enjoyed the overall story-arc of the series. Nic is my favorite character in the Whiskey world books and his story (Noble Hops) was my favorite.

Narrator comment: I enjoyed Tristan James's narration and think he's done a great job narrating this series. There are a variety of accents and character personalities in the 7 available books in the Whiskey world series and it's spin-off's and they have all remained consistent and reflected the personalities of their characters.

This series will happily go onto my "re-listen" list 😊 I was completely immersed in the adventures and wish there were more.

The first time Cam said “Dominic”‘I went up in flames. It’s also an amazing audio for romantic suspense.

Great start to a new series

Written tight and packed with action, I loved this introduction to Cam and Nick's story. Tristan James is a great choice to return as a narrator. Can't wait for the next instalment!

For the Irish and Whiskey lovers, a must read

I am so glad that Ms Reyne did a spin-off of the Irish and Whiskey series and it features Nic and Cam. These two do dance around each other for a large part of the book, but once they finally some the dancing, the fireworks exploded. This book picks up not long after Blended Whisky and their first kiss. Now they are working on a case together involving attempted theft from a dignitary who is going to show them at a museum opening. Things go FUBAR and Cam ends up going undercover. We find out about some of Cam’s past and he has to call on that experience to make it out alive. There were times that I was really worried that things were going to go terribly wrong. And while all this is going on, the people that Nic’s estranged father owes a huge amount of money to, start taking potshots at Nic. This was definitely a sit on the edge of your seat read. Oh and I so hate Nic’s boss and want to know what is driving his anger and hatred. I can’t wait for the next book in this series, so Ms Reyne, write faster ;)

I am so glad this came out in audio, the talented Tristan James did an amazing job narrating this one!

100 Percent Proof Sad

I loved the first books Whiskey/Rye. Sadly the grammar and ill constructed <jumbled> story line, makes this book for me a huge disappointment. I had hoped for a great summer read. But, as to often the case, another example of a publisher obvious attempt to cash in, after a great series.

Did not finish at 60%

To make a book appealing, you need two things: give the reader something to hope, and then add reasons to doubt it comes through.
So here am, hoping Nic starts wooing Cam. And waiting. And waiting. And at 60% I am still skimming the heist part of the story.
The narration was good.

confusing story

sadly I found this story really confusing. it wasn't helped by Tristan James monotone narration. I've listened to a lot of books he's narrated and this is probably his most lacklustre performance. I had to dnf.
