    1. Cask Strength is book two in the series, Agents Irish and Whiskey by author Layla Reyne. This book picks up right after book one and should NOT be read as a standalone. I fell in love with these characters in book one and my love for them has grown as their story continues. In fact, my immediate reaction went a little something like thisO.M.G. I am dying here, the ending. ugh so Good, yet - Now I have to wait to finally see, who is dirty, clean, who can Irish & Whiskey trustBook One - Made m [...]

    2. Actual rating 4.5 starsCask Strength, book 2 in the Irish and Whiskey series by Layla Reyne. The story picks up a few months after they wrapped their big case in Glaveston. Both Aidan and Jamie are quietly continuing their work on trying to find the terrorist Renault, who may be the one who orchestrated the accident that killed Aidan’s husband Gabe, and his FBI partner, Tom. When things heat up with Renault, their boss, Mel, decides they need to get out of town for a few days. They take a case [...]

    3. 2.5 stars** THIS REVIEW IS SLIGHTLY SPOILER-Y, PROCEED WITH CAUTION **I wasn't happy -- strike that, I was frustrated with the relationship drama in this one. I thought both men were being idiot (Aidan's case) and whiny (Jamie's case). I am going to rant now -- so excuse my language -- because Cask Strength was totally NOT what I was expecting the sequel of the promising Single Malt to be, at least in terms of the relationship.So five months later, Aidan is back to his old ways of being a horndo [...]

    4. I must say I am really liking this series. I love all of the characters, and especially Whiskey and Irish together. I guess my only complaint would be the lack of together for the two. Between Aiden's guilt and his self-deniald people trying to kill them they aren't together much in this book. Still, it's a rather exciting read. And I like that while one big mystery carries on through the series, there's other little mysteries in each book. I'm definitely excited to see how things end and will b [...]

    5. "Partners, Irish, always." Lowering their hands, Aidan leaned forward and brushed his lips, sealing the vow. "Partners, Whiskey, always."For God's sake, it was about time, guys!!! After a path of trial and tribulation to get to this promise (and not only for Aidan and Jamie, but also for me, dammit!) the 'always' is rather wishful thinking, though, with all the obstacles in their way and secrets still waiting to be revealed and I am pretty sure that the author will send both men and us readers t [...]

    6. ***5 STARS***2017 Favorite!! Ooooh boy, this one gave me all kinds of feels. Full review to come.He licked into Walker's mouth, tongues tangling, tasting and savoring, swept under by the force of everything in his partner's kiss. Relief, life, need, love. Terrifying love.

    7. Cask Strength is pretty much exactly what I expected considering how the first book ended. I honestly don't understand why some people expected Aiden and Jamie's journey to be lean waters when we've been told from the blurb and from the final chapter of Single Malt that stormy waters and a rocky road is ahead of them both. And just in case you're wandering, the big secret that Jamie is keeping from Aiden is still threatening to ruin their relationship. The third and final book in this trilogy wi [...]

    8. Jamie and Aidan also known as Whiskey and Irish are quickly finding their way to the top of my favorite couple list. Now if you have not read and enjoyed the first book in this series, Single Malt you’ll want to do that before you purchase this book. This is a series that must be read in order. Also if you have not read Single Malt you may find some spoilerish things within this review. Cask Strength begins five months after Galveston and Jamie is sure that Aidan is trying to kill him. Jamie i [...]

    9. 2nd part of the “Agents Irish and Whiskey” series. This is not a standalone. Aidan and Jamie, two FBI agents, met during Single Malt. They are still investigating the death of Gabe and Tom, respectively Aidan’s husband and FBI partner, with Renaud, a French terrorist, as prime suspect.While they’re getting more and more clues, they are assigned to another case that brings Jamie back to this past in the basketball world. Like very close to his past, to the utmost distress of Aidan. End of [...]

    10. So that thing I didwell, there's more'Cask Strength' is the second book in 'Agents Irish and Whiskey' and definitely every bit as good as the first one. Aidan and Jamie take a step back to the life that Jamie came from as Jamie goes undercover in the sport of basketball. What starts out as an investigation into illegal betting and identity theft soon turns out to be more with possible ties into another case that Jamie and Aidan have been investigatingmething that ties into the death of Aidan's h [...]

    11. 4 stars I enjoyed this book. It's the continuation of Single Malt. I was really curious how Irish and Whiskey would find their way to each other. The painful part was seeing how Aidan struggled to accept his feelings towards Jamie. I didn't like it one bit how he still kept it casual and told himself they don't have something special. Jamie was too afraid to lose him, so he ached in silence.Overall it was a great journey seeing the two of them undercover. I've read this almost in one standing, i [...]

    12. Other reviewers weren't kidding -- the first part of this book is heartbreaking and I kind of wanted to smack Aiden for his stubbornness. But the ending?! Hell, I need the next book now.

    13. *4,5 stars*Reread July 2017 - and every single word of my first review still stands:I really enjoyed the first book - I loved the second one.The first 25% are pure agony - totally wonderful (Yes, I do like my angst!). The UST is achingly painful (and beautifully written), and I really wanted to rip Aiden apart with my bare little hands. What the heck is the man thinking? He is emotionally so messed up, he will go to (virtually) any length to make sure he doesn't 'get attached' - when it is blata [...]

    14. ** Cliffhanger Alert!! **Only the fact that I love Tristan James's narration, and that I already bought the third book, kept me listening to this story. Honestly? I was absolutely not the right audience for this. Between the callous treatment of Jamie by Aidan, Aidan's behavior in total, Jamie's spinelessness in their *cough cough* relationship, the continued withholding of extremely sensitive information from Aidan by Mel, Danny, and Jamie was just all so wrong - and almost specifically designe [...]

    15. 5 HeartsWe start five months after Single Malt ended, with our FBI agents moving casually into a romantic relationship and firmly into their professional partnership. On Jamie’s end, he is all in no matter what he promised to Aidan about keeping it casual between them because Jamie has been so gone for Aidan long before anything physical happened between them. He knows Aidan was a man whore before his marriage to Gabe and half listened to Aidan’s points on not being serious – blah blah bla [...]

    16. I liked the first book more so I'll take a break from the series and read something else. I'll get back to the last part of the story in a few weeks.3.5 starsFull review later.

    17. Cask Strength is the second book in the Agents Irish and Whiskey series and is NOT a stand-alone.It's been 5 months since Jamie and Aidan became partners and professionally they are at the top of the Bureau's case clearance board. Personally, their relationship remains hot and very very steamy, but Aidan keeps throwing up boundaries, determined to keep things casual. Aidan was afraid to commit, afraid to lose someone else he loved. While Jamie understood, it hadn’t stopped him from falling. Ja [...]

    18. 5 stars!Whiskey and Irish are becoming an addicting couple. I'm dreading starting the next book knowing it's the last. Or is it?? Someone make me happy and say there's more to come. LOLI was afraid that this book was going to suffer the terrible two's. You know, when book number two isn't as good as the first. But I'm happy to say it kept up the same steam as the first book. I did rate this one higher just for the fact Irish finally caved and Whiskey (who I love) got his happy. Well, his happy f [...]

    19. Me after finishing this:Because at the end Jamie STILL HAS NOT TOLD AIDAN WHAT HE KNOWS ABOUT GABE!! AND TOM!! ARGHH!! *shakes fist*It left me tense throughout this whole book, just WAITING for Jamie to tell him and it DIDN'T HAPPEN!!! ARGHHH!! I'm so frustrated!!! But these books have got me hooked and I need Jamie to tell Aiden at the start of the next book like right away because I can't fucking take him having that secret anymore. I need everything out in the open so we can get through that [...]

    20. ~ 4.5 stars ~This one was even better than the first book!Note: If you hate cliffhangers as much as I do, don't start this book unless you have the next one ready.

    21. Cask Strength is the second book in the "Agents Irish and Whiskey" series. I would not recommend reading it as a standalone, as a lot of the plot from the first book is continued into this one and you would probably be lost. As with the first book, both agents are working on a new case together, while Jamie also works on the case that ended with Aidan losing his husband and teammate. I ended up reading this ARC super early because I couldn't handle waiting to see what happened after the cliffhan [...]

    22. 4.5 starsNote:  Because this is the second book in a series with an overarching storyline, there will be spoilers for the previous book, Single Malt in this review.Cask Strength, the second book in Layla Reyne’s Agents Irish and Whiskey series picks up a few months after the events of Single Malt.  At the end of that book, Aidan Talley and Jameson Walker were instrumental in foiling a terrorist plot - and Jamie’s investigations into the car crash that killed both Aidan’s husband and his [...]

    23. Enjoyment: ♥♥♥♥Narration by Tristan James: ♥♥♥♥♥Plot: ♥♥♥♥Writing: ♥♥♥♥This audiobook was as entertaining as the first book and maybe even more. The agents Aiden Talley (Irish) and Jameson Walker (Whiskey) are still partners after five months but their "relationship" has hit a snag. Aiden still wants to keep things casual but Jamie wants to be exclusive.On top of that Jamie is continuing the secret investigation into the death of Aiden's husband Gabe and his par [...]

    24. ETA: I never did write a more coherent review of this. I'm listening to the audio book now, and man, I love this series. I'm still cranky at Aidan and I still want to give Jamie everything in the world. But it kind of is a class in how to write a trilogy, too. ETA2: I just yelled at the end of the audio book. God, that end! *downloads next audiobook*AaaaAaaaaaaaaaaAAAaaaaAaa!Where's the next one!!!!!??????(More coherent review to follow)

    25. 4.5 stars Loved Jaime and Aidan even though Aidan frustrated me at times but i got over it. “I wasn’t expecting this.” His eyes raked over Aidan again, taking it all in. Dressed in jeans and a navy V-neck sweater, the dark blues set off his pale skin, the freckles, his autumn eyes, that hair “Fuck,” he muttered out loud. Aidan” The mystery was ok but i still felt the story missed something. What i Liked - The chemistry between Irish and Whisky its so believable.- The writing - The ro [...]

    26. Not sure about this. It reads a bit like a camel designed by a committee. There's a slightly incoherent relationship strand (very much subordinated to the plot), a not-completely comprehensible stand-alone investigation (which isn't really much of one, as Aidan & Jamie instinctively home in on the baddies from day 1), and an over-arching mystery that spans books 1 & 2 and heads off firmly in the direction of book 3. Ultimately, while Layla Reyne writes entertainingly enough to keep me tu [...]

    27. From almost DNF to five stars. I give credit to Sara for pushing me to keep reading. It was so worth it.
