ARC received for an honest review
I have been reading Kimberly Knight since she released her first book a few years ago now and I love that her books are not just fluffy romance novels.
Angels and Whiskey is no exception. Yes, it is a romance at the core, but there is so much more going on with her characters, Gabe and Autumn.
I adored Gabe right from the prologue. Yes, he is sexy alpha, but there is heart and hurt beneath all the alpha.
Autumn is so srong. What she has gone through, is going through would be too much for many a weaker woman.
The spark between our pair is instant and off the charts. I loved though that this was not an insta-love relationship. Yes, the instant attraction, but there was no bed hopping as soon as they met – even if they thought about it!!
I just wanted Gabe and Autumn to be able to overcome their past and present problems, could just feel that theirs was going to be a great romance if they could work things out.
So, do they? Can they overcome their issues and get their happy ever after?
Nope, not telling!
There are some fantastic secondary characters too – especially their best friends, Brandi and Paul/PJ/Jackson. Especially Paul.
I hope he gets his own story sometime in the future.
Ms Knight writes an intriguing story every time. I could feel imagine myself in the sands of Afghanistan or on the strip in Vegas. Her characters and their problems feel real and believable.
Kimberly Knight lives in the mountains near a lake with her loving husband and spoiled cat, Precious. In her spare time, she enjoys watching her favorite reality TV shows, watching the San Francisco Giants and San Jose Sharks kick butt, crushing candy on Candy Crush, playing computer games like World of Warcraft with Audrey Harte and online poker. Now that she lives near a lake, she plans on working on her tan and doing more outdoor stuff like...watching hot guys ski. However, the bulk of her time is dedicated to writing and reading Romance and Erotic fiction.
