I think I owe Tristan James a bottle of wine or whiskey.
He is the only reason I continued on with this series after book two…well Tristan and the fact I’d dropped serious coin on the books and audio.
The final story in the Irish and Whiskey triology starts off with Aidan, Jamie, and Danny racing to get to Mel, Aidan’s boss and sister-in-law. When circumstances turn Jamie is almost killed and Aidan finds out just how deep all the betrayals in his life go.
Yes, the other shoe has dropped and the cards are on the table. Aidan wraps himself in the betrayal, ignoring how hurt Jamie is (both physically and emotionally), and everything is completely out of whack – not the least of which is their partnership.
Barrel Proof offers up lots of twists and turns, the answers to the ongoing mysteries are finally revealed, and Aidan and Jamie finally get their HFN/HEA.
This was not as frustrating as Cask Strength for me, but I was still shaking my head with all the relationship angst, the multitude of odd decisions, and…just everything. I’m just happy I finally finished.
Tristan James is brilliant as the narrator for this series, with the character voices, his timing, and the way that he keeps all the suspense and romance flowing seemingly effortlessly. He was an absolute joy to listen to – even when the story itself was driving me nuts.
It pays to note I am in the far, far minority with this – as always, your mileage may vary.
