Everything Dominic Price has worked hard to uphold is about to come crashing down on everything he holds dear.
So much for the quiet life. Just as assistant US attorney and brewery owner Dominic Price is settling into a comfy new chapter with his partner, FBI agent Cameron Byrne, the sudden death of Nic’s father puts their happily-ever-after in jeopardy. Nic immediately suspects foul play, his prime suspect a notorious gangster his father was indebted to—only now the loan shark is out for blood.
Cam has been longing for Nic to finally let him in on this very personal case. But when Nic’s belief that he’s the sole Price heir is upended, the line between personal and professional starts to blur, leaving Cam unsure of where he stands.
Nic is depending on Cam’s kidnap and rescue expertise to save his recently discovered family member before it’s too late. But with a dangerous threat closing in, the ghosts from Nic’s past cast long shadows. Any relationship could crack under the pressure, but for Nic, finding his family might mean losing the love of his life.
I just devoured this one sitting. I regret nothing.
Nic and Cam... What can I say? They were my favourite couple of 2018, and I'm so bummed that this series has come to an end. At the same time, though, this series is everything I could ever want in a romantic suspense trilogy featuring the same main characters, and the way Layla Reyne ended the series was perfect for these guys!
I love Nic and I love Cam, but I have to say that every single scene with them together is utter perfection.
This final instalment of the Trouble Brewing series begins a couple of months after the end of book 2, Craft Brew, and matters concerning Nic's father's debts to a certain gangster come to a head. We have romance mixed with suspense and friendship and family and love. Certain characters get their comeuppance. Other characters get their happily ever afters. Five glorious stars for this finale!
“I’ve got you,” Cam murmured, and dropped a kiss on his temple.
“Just when I thought things were turning our way…”
Nic dropped his head on Cam’s shoulder, and Cam was sure Nic could feel his heart about to beat out of his chest, equal parts worry at the dejection in Nic’s voice, so foreign for him, and adoration, because he let Cam see that, not hiding anything from him, for better or worse.
“One setback.” Cam carded his fingers through Nic’s hair, more of the sexy gray showing every day.
“Three, if we’re counting.”
“Stop counting,” he playfully chided with a swat to Nic’s ass. “Unless it’s your breaths, in which case, take a few extra to settle.”
Nic took the recommended inhales, plus a few more, then rested their foreheads together. “Thank you.”
Cam waited for his eyes to open. “I love you.”
“I love you too.” Finally, a smile, if an exhausted one, right before Nic brushed his lips over Cam’s. It was a slow, gentle kiss, probably the only thing that would be in this already rough-and-tumble day, and Cam let Nic take all that he needed. Cam needed it too—this reminder of their connection, the threads of the rope being reinforced. Cam would hold Nic to his word. Nic hadn’t let the rope go for him when Cam had needed him to hold tight, and Cam wouldn’t let go now either, nor would he let Nic, or anyone else for that matter, cut through it with a Ka-Bar.
