Ryder Waites will do anything to keep the tiny town of Gallows Grove, Kentucky, from vanishing off the map - even sell his family's whiskey recipe to Bluegrass Bourbon in Lexington. Hopeful that the larger company can provide necessary improvements to the distillery, Ryder aims ultimately to get Gallows Grove on the Bourbon Trail...and bring in much-needed tourism revenue. But to keep producing Hanged Man Bourbon in Gallows Grove, he'll have to convince the company liaison, unbearably stuffy and seriously hot Adam Keller, that he's worth the investment.
Adam comes from an old-money family, but he's determined to make his own way in the world. When he's sent to Gallows Grove, he questions the life choices that led him to a rented room in a funeral home in a town full of macabre-themed businesses. And he doesn't know what to make of Ryder, the descendant of bootleggers, who's on a mission to save his strange town from extinction. When Adam and Ryder put aside their initial mistrust, the results are as smooth as good whiskey. But after Adam's assignment ends, he'll have to decide if small-town life and a future with Ryder are to his taste.

Whiskey Business is sweet, funny, and sexy with some wonderfully filthy dirty talk thrown in. Add in smooth, easy to listen to narration and this audiobook hit the spot just like a good bourbon.
I really liked that Gale wonderfully describes so much of Kentucky and the people I felt like I'd been there.
Adam isn't exactly Ryder's enemy, but the two have a rocky start, even though they both obviously want each other. I love that the chemistry between Ryder and Adam is so combustible even from the start. Coupled with all the humor that Gale infuses into the story, this was just the kind of quick, fun story I needed.
I liked that it wasn't all fun and games, and that Gale interwove some much needed conflict pretty expertly without it devolving into unnecessary angst.
Kirt Graves, and I just cannot help chuckle every time I see his name associated with this particular story - it just fits so perfectly, does a great job with character voices and so well with the sometimes macabre humor in the story. It's dual POV is narrated really well, and it's an enjoyable, quick (at under 4 hours) listen.
If you're looking for a short, but fun story that has some dirty talk with the sexy times and a lot of love - for both the characters and the setting - than wet your whistle with this one
Very enjoyable !
