FBI agents Aidan “Irish” Talley and Jameson “Whiskey” Walker can’t get a moment’s peace. Their hunt for the terrorist Renaud seems to be nearing an end, until a fire allows him to slip through their fingers—and puts Jamie’s life in danger. When Jamie is nearly killed, Aidan learns how many forms loss can take.

Aidan says I love you just moments before learning that Jamie’s been keeping a devastating secret about Aidan’s late husband. How quickly trust and love can go up in flames. When Aidan requests a solo undercover assignment, Jamie hopes Aidan will find a way to forgive him.

But the explosions are far from over. Aidan’s cover lands him in the heart of the terrorist’s conspiracy, and Jamie will have to put his life, his career and his freedom on the line to save the man who has become his entire world. Partners, always is a promise he intends to keep.

What a ride!!

My friends have been telling me to read this series and i finally got around to doing that this year. Devoured all three books over 20 days. They’re uquick compelling reads so no surprise there. I was glad I had them to read one after the other because damn…the endings of the previous books had me screaming!!

I enjoyed Jamie and Aidan’s relationship, solidifying, just growing stronger, partners always *cries tears of joy* I mean they’ve been through so muuuuch to get to their HEA 😀

“Because I want to be able to come home to you,” he said. “If I stay, my anger will ruin this.” 


This had me riveted and Ms. Reyne sure knows how to keep me on my toes. I’ll admit some things just went right over my head lol, like the financial market stuff, but it didn’t stop me from enjoying and wanting to know what came next. As much as this is a story about them trying to bring down a terrorist, it’s so much about the relationships as well. Jamie and Aidan’s. Aidan’s with his family. Jamie’s with A’s family. Mel and Danny (happy sighs) Jamie and Cam, the best besties.

I loved watching Mel & Danny’s relationship unfold in the background. I want a million books with just them bickering and being in looove hehehe.  I need soooo much more of these two because i adore Mel and she and Danny are so good together from the little bits we got of them in the same scene. Neeeeed more. Dying to get into Mel’s head to be quite honest. So me, waiting on their novella that’s coming in November


And i was totallyyy shipping Cam and Nic, not even sorry about it. I’m just gonna be waiting here to see if the vibe i was pretty sure i was getting will materialize into anything, ever.

This is my first romantic suspense read in a goooood while and it’s renewed my need to read more in this genre! My fave m/m Rom Suspense of all time is Cut & Run and these AIW books made me so nostalgic for those boys.

Feel free to rec me all the rom suspense! any pairing. If you got some f/f even better. I’ve never read f/f rom suspense so have at it!

Oh, and because i mentioned it’s overuse in my review of book two there was minimal use of “autumn eyes” and “gasping” so I definitely appreciated that 😀
